    11 Weeks Out Current Diet


    Hey, been awhile since I posted on here life has been pretty hectic (graduated from college/new job/got married/new baby) whoooo lol Anyways, one of my friends convinced me to do my first natural competition and I wanted some opinions of my current diet. Here is what it looks like currently with all macros:

    Breakfast (8:00) Cals Carbs Prot Fat
    1 Cup Oatmeal 300 54 10 6
    1 Cup Egg Whites 133 5 26 0
    5 Fish Oil Capsules 50 0 0 5
    Shake (10:30)
    2 Scoops Whey 240 18 40 2
    Lunch (12-1245)
    1/2 cup grits 260 58 6 1
    6oz. Chicken Breast 165 0 33 5
    1 Cup Spinach or Broccoli 30 4 2 0
    Shake (3:30)
    2 Scoops Whey 240 18 40 2
    Dinner (6:00)
    6oz. Chicken Breast 165 0 33 5
    1/2 Cup Grits 165 58 6 5
    1 Cup Spinach or Broccoli 30 4 2 0
    5 Fish Capsules 50 0 0 5
    Workout (8:00pm.)
    1 Tbsp. Gatorade 50 14 0 0
    Post-Workout (9:00pm)
    6oz. Chicken Breast 165 0 33 5
    1 Cup Oatmeal (Dry) 300 54 10 6
    1 Cup Spinach or Broccoli 30 4 2 0
    5 Fish Oil Capsules 50 0 0 5
    Before Bed (11:00pm)
    1 Cup Large Curd 2% CC 216 6 26 9
    5 Fish Oil Capsules 50 0 0 5


    I also am taking:
    6g AAKG Daily (3g Pre-workout/3g before bed)
    Multi twice daily
    200mcg Chromium Picolinate with Breakfast and Lunch

    I am not currently doing any creatine but am considering adding some in. I also am going to add some Yohimbine HCL at Week 6 to start cutting. My metabolism is fast but has slowed down a bit in the last few years.

    My workouts are as follows:
    Day 1: Chest/Triceps
    Day 2: Quads/Calves/Stairs
    Day 3: Off
    Day 4: Shoulders/Hamstrings/Stairs
    Day 5: Back/Biceps
    Day 6: Abs/Stairs/Cardio
    Day 7: Stairs+Bike (Cardio)

    Current Weight is around 185lbs, 5'9"

    Sounds fairly good to me. Typically I do the bulk of my carbs around workouts or cardio and first thing in the morning. (do not do fasted cardio). Depends how many carbs one eats tho, if eating a lot then you would spread carbs a bit more. As long as youre losing weight slowly, like 1-1.5 lbs a week, and your strength is staying decent, you should be good. Don't eliminate lifting heavy during your cutting too, good luck
    My goal as a natural bodybuilder is to improve constantly, and win my pro card, while making an increasing amount of people doubt that I'm natural ;)

    Yeah I usually do cardio twice a week right now but I'm going to up that as I think I need to be losing fat a little quicker. I try to do carbs around workouts but since I'm working 9-5 and my workouts are usually late evening, I don't usually get that luxury. Still lifting heavy an I think I'm lifting heavier now than I did before I started dieting since I have more of an end game or goal.

    The time of day doesn't matter...if youre lifting or doing cardio you need carbs before and after. That's what your body should be using for energy an this will spare muscle from being metabolized for energy. You will also need them to have the energy to lift heavy

    True,I try not to consume that many carbs close to bed because if I do, I tend to store them as fat easier. I also have never noticed any real difference eating a lot of carbs close to workouts versus eating them earlier in the day but of course everyone is different as far as how they utilize energy.

    Yeah, I wouldn't worry about carbs at night, it's a myth. If you're depleted from training your body will utilize them not store them. I'd recommend at least doing an occasional carb refeed
