    Boiled Chicken and my Bulking Diet?


    Hey everyone-

    I'm training for my first show which is in Sept. I just got done dropping bodyfat to 11.5%. Now my nutritionist has me on a bulk. He's having me eat boiled chicken quite a bit as well as tilapia (I hate fish). I haven't had a chance to speak with him yet. Does anybody know why one would boil chicken? I also was under the impression that these foods would only be consumed right before the show.....Damn!! I'll eat them if he wants me to. It just sucks!! here's a typical week for me. I'm assuming he wants me to drop some more bodyfat while adding some LBM. Let me know what you guys think. I think it'll be pretty good if I can choke that $hit down. By the way with his cut I lost 8% BF in my first 2 months with him. I'm 5'11" 213. Not sure how much I can gain here. It should be quality though. Very clean-Sorry for the long post just wanted you to see what I eat.

    I also just started the NHA stack- should be pretty good!!

    It looks like he's trying to keep your dietary fat content down with very lean protein sources, aside from the salmon. Tilapia and boiled chicken are both very lean sources of protein. Most of the time, when you boil chicken breast, it's in order to get the excess sodium out, but I believe it also may lower the fat content some as well.

    As for the Tilapia, it's the least "fishy" tasting white fish I've found, so you should be fine with it. I hated fish also, and I was fine eating 5 meals a day of Tilapia during my contest prep. Try putting some salt-free lemon pepper on it.

    Thank you sir! I'll try the lemon pepper. I've never had tilapia or boiled chicken breast. This will be an adventure. I'm lifting M-F and cardio 45 mins. W-Sun. I'm not sure if it's enough calories. He know what he's doing though.

    I think boiling is supposed to take everything out of it. I don't know. Rpen mentioned that it was to get the sodium out. Again not sure-I'm doing as I'm told. If anyone know more about why boiling chicken is beneficial that would be great!!

    Thanks for the reply's. It's nice having a support group. I'll keep you guys posted on how things are going. I'm going out of town this weekend so I won't be starting the full blown diet until Monday. It'll be modified a bit. Thanks again.

    Just remember, if you are making a run at a show go full force, do not throw in cheat meals becuase if you take 2nd and not first you will be wondering if that cheat meal was worth it. Just have fun with the diet and take it slow. If your show is in Sept you have plenty of time. But definitly get rid of that boiled chicken, grill it or use the broiler. Heck I use barbeque sause right up till the last 2 weeks.

    I hear ya bro and trust me I'd rather not do it-I hate cardio! However I'm paying this guy to tell me what to do. I'm really motivated as well, but if I start feeling overtrained I'll let him know. I'm going to stick it out for now and see how it goes. It's been good so far and I def. want to drop more BF.
