  1. Starting a New diet comments, suggestions?


    I'm currently 5' 7'', 185 looking to make the push to 2 bills.
    Diet:
    6:00am 1 cup oatmeal, 1 banana, Whey protein shake with 12 oz 1% milk

    8:00 am 1 cup lowfat yogurt, 4 egg whites

    10:00 am 1 oz almonds, 1 apple (whey protien shake with 12 oz water)

    12:30pm turkey (4 0z) sandwich on whole wheat, 1 cup brown rice, 1 cup veg.

    2:00pm 1 can tuna, 1 cup lowfat cottage cheese

    3:30 pm whey protein shake with 12 oz water (pre-wkout)


    5:00 pm 2 cups raisin bran with 8 0z 1% milk, Whey Protien shake with 12 oz of 1% milk (post-wkout)

    7:00 1 chicken breast(or 2 fillets of talapia,salmon etc.), 1 cup brown rice, 1 cup veg. , 12 oz 1% milk

    9:00 3 tbs pb on two slices whole wheat

    10:00 Whey Protien shake with 12 oz. 1% milk


    supps: Creatine Mono,Glutamine,

    oils: fish and flaxseed taken with meals.

    I'm starting with that and hopefully upping the calories every few weeks.

    any suggestions?


  2. Switch from whey to a mix protein. Make your own over at TP; I suggest a mix of casein and egg.

    good advice..

    also, I'd throw a little more into your 8 and/or 10am meals.... they seem kind of small to me.

  4. yeah those meals are kind of small . but I would call them more of in between meals than snacks. If you put them together with the meals after them than I still am at 7 or 8 meals for the day.

  5. also....3100 cals was holding me steady at 185. So I figure that my maintenance cals are around 3000 so I upped it to about 3800 and I will gradually be upping as every two weeks or so. I figure that those meals will be where I add those cals.

    I really doubt that you need to increase your kcals that much. Start at 3400-3500 instead. You are much more likely to add LBM without nearly as much BF. Also, with only a modest increase, you are more likely to have a solid recomp, as opposed to a dirty bulk.

  7. Thanks...
    that's what I was thinking. I definitely don't think I need to add anymore calories for now.
    I've always been taught that you start out with about 2 or 3 hundred above your maintenance calories and continue to gradually increase your calories as needed.
    For instance if a guy is maintaining at 2500 it is not nescessary for him to bulk on a 5000 calorie diet as the majority of the calories will be either wasted or turned into fat. Right?
