    If you're 240, don't eat less than like 2200 calories...
    Get rid of the ice cream, the cheese (except cottage and switch to 1% or fat free), and drop the Nature Valley Bars (worthless carbs).

    You're on the right track raising your protiens and fats, but the problem I see is that carbs you're getting aren't good carbs. You need more whole foods...oats, barley, brown rice, etc.

    In both diets nearly allof your carbs are simple sugars...I'd work on that...

    are you aiming for 40/40/20?

    I would probably say yes...
    I try not to buy bread products that have "high fructose corn syrup" on the list of ingredients...this is VERY hard to do, but I've managed...

    i would stay away from pita's, even wholemeal pita... they are still very processed, they have no grains in them, and can still have a high-GI, go for some grain dense bread(linseed and soy/multigrain/pumpernickel) before you get some pita's, and get some vegies before you get some bread(vegies are king) also other grains such as rice and oats are a better source of carbs, same with sweet potatoes, they are a much better choice

    when you say rice, are we talking about the everyday white rice? or wild/brown rice.

    are you sure that data is acurate? I looked up a few things from your diet at http://www.calorieking.com/foods/food.php?category_id=71&brand_id=687&food_id=82482&partner= and I see some major differences in calories and carbs... (IE: bagel, shredded wheat etc.) might wanna check them again.

    Bagel, whole wheat, 100%, toasted - big no no, replace it with oats
    Ham, sliced, extra lean, prepackaged or deli, luncheon meat - try get fresh meat!
    Nature Valley trail mix bar - sounds processed, get a better source of fat/carbs
    Pork, fresh, loin, blade (chops), bone-in, separable lean only, cooked, braised - OUCH! 33 grams of fat (mostly saturated i would assume) in one hit, get some lean meat!!
    Ice cream bar or stick with fruit - come on you know your not ment to eat that!!

    *use chicken, turkey and tuna instead of ham and pork

    ok now, what is your training like?

    crap is crap, any time of the day, bagel's are crap :)

    like i said, replace ham and pork with chicken, turkey and tuna

    you have to be kidding me about the ice cream!

    also i dont see vegies in masses, you need to eat tons more vegies!

    also where is your pre/post workout nutrition??

    it would be good if you could write up the times you have these foods

    ok..... *takes a DEEEEEP breath*

    all your meals in the morning are so close together, and so small, and you meals are night are very spaced out, and are also uneven

    firstly you need to overhaul your morning diet, no bagel, use oats in the morning, cottag cheese is better than cream cheese, use that instead with your oats, and some milk if you like, you dont need the whey here, your breakfast is too big!

    now for the next 2 meals....these arent meals in these meals, you wanna eat protein with every meal, no matter what, base your meals around protein, then add either carbs of fat, try get your carbs from vegetable sources, or fruit(not try some apples or berries instead of apricots, sweet potato instead of corn, brussel sprouts instead of carrots, just examples...) and fats from things like almonds and walnuts
    you want to avoid processed foods at all costs (yes that means that candy bar there!)

    you are eating every 2-3hours, so have 6 GOOD meals, rather than 9 incomplete ones

    now for example your 11:30meal, its good, but i would use chicken, turkey or tuna instead of ham, also add a better carb source, like some vegies, you want to stay away from eating just 1 food group, it will leave you hungry! (like your 12:00 meal, add some carb or fats to this)

    5:00, you could probly eat less here, but re-distribute it, remember even meals are the best way to curb hunger and keep your metabolism running all the time

    PLEASE take care of pre/post workout nutrition, read that thread i posted, and do what it says, and yes, you should never cut back on calories for pre and post workout in particular, if you have to reduce calories during the day to make room for it!

    so....
    - time your meals better, evenly
    - have protein with each meal
    - try and stick to protein + carb or protein + fat meals
    - have good unprocessed food sources (vegies/fruits/unprocessed grains for carb)
    - your food choices could be better, you will learn how to make better choices as you learn more
    -
