You can keep carbs around your workouts, and in the evenings have vegetables. Last summer I got really lean by doing this. I also rotated my calories (2 days at 2700, 3 days at 2400-2500, 2 days at 2100-2000) and did 30 minutes of low-intensity cardio about 3-5 days a week. Since you will be out of school, you will be able to get a good routine that will have you very lean in about a month.
i think i'll start a food log here on MAB for credibility.
this week i'll start to clean up the diet, although being exam week... it should be crazy.
this summer though there will be no excuses. i should be working our 2 times a day and i'll have all the time in the world to prepare food!
