I think everything looks in order from a macro standpoint. I also see oats and rice as carbs, and a good variety of protein sources.

Thanks bud, as from what others have said elsewhere, what is your stand on the sodium intake there? And you think I should lower the protein a bit and up the carbs?

If you are trying to cut fat I wouldn't raise the carbs any higher. If anything you could take the fat as high as 30%. I am no expert on diet, but I do know that when cutting, most competitors/models/etc. use some form of carb cycling, or a straight moderate to low carb approach. Most fat percentages are around 20 to 30%.

I wouldn't make any adjustments until you see how your body responds. Some of the bodybuilders on MAB might have other opinions that are more wise than mine...

As far as sodium...I can only speak from personal experience. I don't limit it while cutting. If I'm being honest, I consume more sodium while cutting - spicing up my food, pickles as snacks, etc.

This post might help more with fat intake:

http://muscleandbrawn.com/forums/nut...diet-help.html

Quote:
Fat Intake-
* Mesomorphs – 17% – 23% of total calories.
* Ectomophs – 24%-28% of total calories.
* Endomorphs – 23%-28% of total calories (fat intake is increased in order to reduce carbohydrate intake, as endomorphs may have a difficult time losing fat with higher carbohydrate intakes). For our subject, this equates to about 400 – 550 kcal from fat per day (45g – 60g fat per day) Once again, I prefer the ‘middle of the road’ approach and would set his fat intake at around 55g fat per day (495 kcals/day from fat) .
