I have been training for 12 years at the gym.
The best way to lower your caloric intake is to cut down on carbs.
When i am training hard and in diet mode, i would have on a typical day
Breakfast - Whole grain oats, if you want hardcore, have it with water - NOT MILK.
Omlet - 3/4 egg whites , only half of the yolk, throw the rest out.
Protein shake - Make sure it is the natural one, not the one with aspartine, that stuff is not good for you. The natural ones have a slightly higher carb intake, but it is better for your health.
Mid morning - can of tuna in spring water
Lunch - Chicken (size of the palm of your hand) with some brocolli
Afternoon snack - Nuts, raw cashews / raw almonds
Train at the gym
Steak / Chicken / fish with vegetables.
Make sure throughout the day, you are drinking as much water as you can, no soda.
No bread, no sweets
1 day a week, typically Sunday, you can cheat a little, have what you were craving for, a pizza, burger , some chocolate - only one day though..
If you follow this, i will assure you that you will lose alot of weight.
