Also, what are your goals on the cut? Are you going for a bodybuilder-style competition physique, or just to knock off 10-15 pounds of fat?
I tried counting for a while, but it was too much effort especially because I wasn't eating at home a lot so I didn't have anything to base numbers on. I'm cutting to drop fat and get defined. I wouldn't say I'm trying to get to 3% body fat or anything like that. I'm just trying to get under 10% and see how I look from there. Also, I just want to get in really good shape, because the more and more it seems like I'm joining the military, the more I realize that basic will kill me in my current shape. I got the calorie proportions from Frank Zane's High Def Handbook that I got in the mail yesterday. And I'm trying to work on a split for the gym right now.

I'm thinking:

Chest/Triceps/Core
Legs
Cardio/Core
Shoulders/Cardio
Back/Biceps
Cardio/Core
Rest

Also, I don't have to stick with the food that I put on my meal plan. That's just what is in my house right now. I can take suggestions and put them in a grocery list, I just need to know. Since today I'm going to the Texas State Fair, it might not be the best day to start. Tomorrow is the start of the long road, I just have to get my numbers and stuff together first. Thanks for all the help.
