here is a sample of my diet. i rotate the salmon/talapia/and ground turkey meals for different days. Everything else is pretty much set in stone. I am looking to drop some decent bodyfat/weight. I am also doing a practice run of preparing for a contest incase i ever decide to compete. i am not supplementing with any type of fat burner/stimulant. any comments/changes will be gladly appreciated.

I basically started this diet about 1 month ago, i started cleaning up my diet for the first week. now i am performing a.m cardio 5 days a week. i started out doing 25 minutes the first week then 30 minutes the next week, this week i am on 35 minutes. I am going to gradually work my way up to 45 minutes week by week.

looks really solid man. Only thing I could reccomend would be swapping out the sun flower seeds for almonds.
Im assuming that the 2 scoops of whey and the gatorade is your preworkout? I think you would be much better off haveing some whole food carbs prior to lifting like oats rather than gatorade mix especially when trying to cut.
looking pretty solid though

I dont know man, Im a female and eat that for calories on training days and 1800 on off training days. I think your carbs are too low and your fat is too high. Your food choices look good, the only thing I would change is the applesauce, even at natural, id switch it for a lite yogurt which has about 12 grams protein at Krogers. And I hope your sunflower seeds are unsalted as well.
You say you have been on this for a month already, what have you seen for results in that time?

I will try the yogurt, but the applesauce sure does make the oatmeal go down better! The sunflower seeds are roasted/unsalted. also i carb up saturday/sunday. this next week im going to bump the carbs up and take a couple fat meals out to see how my body reacts to it. thanks alot for the comments guys/gals.

based on the grams you listed for daily intake here are your calorie breakdown:
932 protein calories
628 carb calories
738 fat calories
do you not see whats wrong with this picture?

Looks to me like someone might want to lower the fat and up the carbs and protein a little.Originally Posted by FitnFirm

whether you need the high insulin spike post workout is still up in the air and open to debate. However when looking to cut bf I feel your much better off going low gi for post. Even when bulking I still go low gi post workout.

thanks again fitnfirm

IMO it looks too low. Definetely not my tastes. And also, if you've already been on this diet for a month you probably want to try to switch it up, maybe increase calories. When you drop this low on calories for an extended period of time it can slow down metabolism considerably, especially if the demand from the body is great. It looks really solid but maybe you could add a meal or something.
Drop gatorade, add oats.

I use a similar approach myself and have found it to work quite nicely for fatloss. I ensure that the meals surrounding my workout are of the protein/carb variety, even if I'm working out in the evening.Originally Posted by BLANE

Sounds good. You're body is a very adaptive creature. Keep changing things up. Don't change too much of what you are doing in the gym, intensity is key. Keep weights high as I find this crucial. Keep morning cardio solid. Alternate carbs. Take is day by day and you'll reach success.

06-26-2006, 12:17 PM
