I'm sure my diet could use some refining so I wanted to post it here and see what type of feedback I could get from the experts out there. I've been working out off and on for about 7 years now and i'm 31 years old 200 lbs. I started my morning routine of working out for 1 - 1.5 hours first thing in the morning back in August and I've already gotten pretty cut up. The problem is my gut doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Genetically I'm screwed because everyone in my family has chicken legs with a big ol gut but I'm trying to fight that.

Here's an example of how I've been eating:
5am pre-workout - Cliff Bar & Labrada Protein Shake w/ Skim milk and frozen strawberries
10am - 2-3 hard boiled Eggs w/ omega 3
noon - stir fry, grilled chicken salad or sushi
6pm - chicken, steak, stir fry left overs, whatever basically

I also drink beer 2-3 nights a week.

Any advice on how to continue to bulk / cut-up as well as lose the gut would be greatly appreciated.

some tips, in my opinion that could help you

1. you have 4 meals daily - try and get 5 or 6 meals in daily, even if they are just protein shakes. And maybe have a post workout meal/shake

2. if you have been working out for 7 years it may be very hard for you to bulk and cut at the same time - you may need to choose one.

3. make sure you know exactly how many calories you need to reach your goal of cutting/bulking - so find you BMR and reduce calories if you are cutting/eat more if bulking.

as an example a better plan would be

pre workout 100g oats/30g protein powder

10am 50g pasta 40g protein powder/equvilant chicken

this is just an example but you can see that the amounts of food are much more specific. This way you can really be sure about what you are eating and can change up you diet to be very specific if you aren't making progress
