As a female who wants 2 lose weight as well as build muscle are the meal plans the b/builders use appropriate?

When I research meal plans the body builders go by, it is always very high protein, small regular meals etc...is this appropriate to both lose weight AND build muscle?? Or should I lose the weight before I follow a meal plan to that degree??

I was thinking:

Pre-workout: Banana

Post Workout/Breakfast: Whey Protein shake, pce w/grain toast, pc fruit

Mid Morn: Egg whites+tomato+cottage cheese

Lunch: Chicken+green salad

Mid A/Noon: Fruit+f/f yog

Dinner: Meat+veges+brown rice

Can anyone with some knowledge of nutrition etc recommend any changes???

    Yes that sounds fine. Body builders get a bad rep because all people think they are eating is raw egg shakes and such. They are actually very healthy people and are building muscle while doing it. You wouldnt need to drink all of they whey protein they drink, but a little would be fine - just remember whey protein is high in calories so be mindful of that.

    Your meal plan looks great! I would eat a little more for breakfast, like oatmeal with fruit, because it helps my workout when I do endurance type exercises. But other than that, it looks yummy and you will see results!
