    Changed my diet, critique please!

    Height: 5"6
    Weight: 135
    Body fat: roughly 20%
    Goal: Below 10% body fat

    1. Breakfast: 4 large eggs
    2. Lunch: Big salad (Lettuce, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, some turkey, and a lot of olive oil)
    3. Snack: 1 oz almonds
    4. Dinner: 4 medium sized chicken thighs
    Total calories: 1,900

    Calories too low or too high?

    I exercise lightly 3x a week

    I don't want to lose weight, just body fat.

    Don't do that, dear. One week is too short a time to determine whether it'll work for you or not. What works for someone else may make you gain weight and feel like crap. Ultimately, advice is all good but it's useless unless it works for you. Stick with what you've been eating for a month and then tweak it. You will know what's working then, nobody knows your body like you do.

    I agree completely. You need to give it more like a month to see change. I also agree about activity levels. If you are a guy who wants to decrease bf you'll need to do some heavy lifting at least 3x week. Try adding interval sprints in there as well and lay off any low level cardio or you may inadvertently lose weight.

    If you want to lose body fat, you'll have to do more than exercise lightly a few times a week. You'll need to lift and do cardio, too, at least in my experience. Your meals seem ok, how much fat are you eating?

    To burn body fat, you have to pick heavy shit up and put it down. Eating this crappy diet is going to turn you into a potato sack that weighs less.
