Can anyone provide pointers or improvements to my diet... i know your all probably bored of the amount of diets posted... Anyone have any sort of feedback what so ever?
Im pretty happy with it and im making gains, but im open to ideas....
06-07-2011, 10:57 AM
Loads of views and not ONE single opinion.....
06-07-2011, 11:10 AM
I will jump in on this, good to have other members from the UK on here!
You want to bulk up more. What is your body fat percentage?
Also, how long have you been on your current diet and what results do you have to show for it?
06-07-2011, 11:29 AM
Cheers for the comment dude,
My body fat % BEFORE the bulk was 11/12%, i was massively ripped, but that doesn't really matter to me at the moment.
The diet i have posted is my current diet, i have been on it for over a month now and gained 4/5 pounds, of probably 60% muscle and the rest fat, Im not too bothered about fat gain, ill just keep it in check.
Anything i should add or change about the diet? Its working IMO, but i am curious about others views and opinions
06-07-2011, 11:34 AM
I don't know if you are on cycle at the moment or about to start so can't be definitive on how much your nutrition plan is working.
Personally for me it is very carb heavy and your sources of protein are all vegetarian unless I am missing something or you have some hidden collagen in those protein flapjacks of yours?!
I prefer to get sources of protein from meat, fish or eggs. They are complete sources and come with a source of fat (in some) and micronutrients.
This looks like the kind of diet someone would eat if they were staying in a hotel and trying to make the best of a bad situation.
06-07-2011, 11:39 AM
Haha, yea i'm on cycle at the moment, i am actually believe it or not a massive meat eater, and i thought that would be something that was picked up. I have 'opted' for no meat in meals 1,2,3,4 and 6 (dinner will 100% contain either beef,chicken,fish e.t.c) because of time and money, i know, terrible excuse right? However for now this is working, but in your opinion you would add a tad more meat into the mix, and decrease the carbs?
I have made the carbs high for weight gain, i know fats come with cabs too though.
06-07-2011, 11:45 AM
I would, yes.
I make protein the most important thing in there and revolve my meals around the source. Anything you want to bump the calories up goes alongside it. I would propose to let your protein and carb caloric intake meet in the middle rather than being so carb heavy. That is personal preference. If you are putting on noticeable amounts of fat and you are on cycle, you could definitely clean up somewhere.
Cost of protein flapjacks to cost of meat as a bulk purchase? Interesting comparison.
06-07-2011, 11:51 AM
Very interesting to hear your approach though
06-07-2011, 11:58 AM
You probably won't have to focus on bringing your carbs down, if you increase meat consumption you will inevitable have a slightly lower appetite for the rest of the meal. I know a steak fills me up more than a protein flapjack.
Just start with it as the most important and keep doing the rest you are doing. Give it a couple of weeks to assess progress and then post another review my diet form if you want to make any further changes.
Best of luck.

For anyone that takes an interest, i have reformed my diet. On the above diet i gained around 10 pounds (i was on hdrol too). Now im looking to gain at a more slower but steadier pace, and keep my gains.
My new diet is below.
07-03-2011, 05:26 PM
Umm this diet looks odd to me. Id say have a meat based protein source with each meal, then carbs, veggies, fruits, and healthy fats. 40-50g protein per meal is good. Then just fill the rest in with lots of veggies, fruits, carbs and fats.
07-03-2011, 07:01 PM
that doesnt add up to 3390 cals..........300 pro 300 carb 100 fat is 3300 and ur not even hitting that ....also 3 TBlsp of EVOO is alot more tahn 1.9 g fat and its not 21 g protein ....u might want to revise that man lol
07-04-2011, 01:11 AM
my 3390 calories a day, come from the 6 meals, 646 calories (meal one) + 553 Calories (meal two) + 554 Calories (Meal three) + 282 Calories (Meal four) + 500 Calories (Meal five) + 855 Calories (Meal Six) = 3390.
Also i didnt say that 3 TBlsp of EVOO is 1.9 g fat and 21 g protein i have said that its 0 carbs 0 protein and 45g of fat, your looking at the wrong line dude.
I dont know what the confusion is with my protein and carbs and fats, so your on your own there But i hope thats straightened a little out mate.

Ok so you've gotten a bit of good advice...and I really believe that the person giving it above is trying to be nice about it. I'm going to be a little more direct:
You're documenting and making an attempt to track your habits
You Posted because you know there is something wrong with it
The diet is a complete failure-you need to scrap it.
You don't really even have a basic foundation in dieting--if you do at all it's not showing here.
You are 20 and on cycle before you have even attempted to understand dieting/training/R&R --Haven't given yourself a chance to grow
This whole post really made me want to grind my teeth.
Whey Protein/Protein Flap Jacks/ 5 biscuits???? None of this is remotely cheaper or more convenient than a proper diet. If there was a name for this diet you have concocted it would be "Become a Carb overload Fatty in 4 weeks"
The avg cost of whey protein in the US is more than 1 dollar per scoop.
2 scoops = 50g protein= $2.25-$3.00
12-18 eggs= $1.79-2.40= 84-126g of Protein
From what I understand it's expensive as hell to get good US products in the UK.
Not only are you wasting more money by heavily depending on supps for protein you aren't getting any calorie dense and nutritious food.
STICK TO WHOLE FOODS.
-Its more convenient
-It tastes better
-Is not as harsh on your entire system
-And promotes a healthy metabolism among other things
Have you ever read a body building magazine in the least? They always have sample diets.
Chicken, Salmon/Tuna/Flounder, Eggs, Steak, Ground beef, greek yogurts, milk, cottage cheese-should be main sources of protein
Yams, wheat pasta, brown rice, white rice, steel cut oatmeal are just a few of natural sources to get CARBS
Healthy fat sources are endless.
Vegetables...if you're not eating some at least 2x a day you're wrong...
You should be eating every 2-3 hours.
I hope you fix this, so that you can start making some gains from this cycle. It really saddens me that you have gone this route at this time in your life.
-Do you understand why no one wanted to respond to this thread? I'm not perfect but damn man......
P.s. What the hell is a sandwich filling??? Everytime I read it I want to punch someone in the face...seriously wth is it? lol

As for my cycle, i am finished with Hdrol, and i gain 10 pounds. WERE THE 10 POUNDS WORTH THE DAMAGE OF HDROL? PROBABLY NOT, WILL I BE DOING ANOTHER COURSE, PROBABLY NOT. For now, i am just training hard and working out my diet for maximum gain, and your right thats why i have submitted my diet to AM.
I shall revise my diet and look to get the proteins from meats, look for roughly 50g of protein per meal, and keep the carbs low and the fats low, as for using this diet to 'Become a Carb overload Fatty in 4 weeks' i highly doubt an intake of this amount of carbs would enduce that, however each to their own.
But thanks for the advice, and i take constructive critism as well as praise.
Oh and also i said about not responding to this thread on the original diet, not for this new one.

Gotcha, it's all a learning process for everyone. We all have good intentions. However, we are judged by our actions and consequences not the intent of them.
Just keep plugging away. I hope ur PCT is str8 fo urr health. At 20 u don't want to be destroying ur natty levels already. Goodluck man, - oh it was just a joke about the the diet.

You dont understand the basics of nutrition. Id suggest you start there.
07-11-2011, 12:01 AM
second, NO ONE NEEDS to eat every 2-3 hours. thats hogwash with no factual basis.
third, why does everyone suggest yams, mahi mahi, tilapia and all the finest to 20 year olds? keep it simple. cans of chicken breast, chili, eggs, nuts and fruits. one thing i eat nearly every day i put it down in 5 minutes cause it goes down so easy - 6 whole eggs, a can of turkey chili and a tablespoon of olive oil to cook the eggs in - 900-1000 cals. cost? less than $2.50 .
For me, the action IS the juice.

meal plans good make sure its spread out or you will get to fat. the reason i think your chest is weak because your chest and shoulder days are to close so you could be over training. same thing happened to mine.
shut up and squat!!!
