    Diet Advice


    I'm in the service and stationed out in the middle of Iraq for the next 7 to 8 months.

    We never know what we are eating until the day before.

    I just need someone that knows the service well enough to talk me through a diet plan of what I should and shouldn't be eating and how much of it I should be eating.

    I'm 26 yrs old 180lbs 6'2"

    My goals are to gain as much muscle mass as I can within the next 4-5 months and then cut up.

    i'm not familiar w/the type & frequency of meals you have access to out there so i may not be of much help.

    just try to get seconds on the meat servings. and if milk is available (even powdered) drink as much as you can.

    and thank you for your service to our great country!

    4 Meals a day:

    Breakfast 5:30 to 8:30am
    Lunch 11:30 to 2:30pm
    Dinner 5:30 to 8:30pm
    Mid Night Snack 11:30pm to 1:30am

    Does the milk matter whole, skim, 2%?

    And if I have a choice between beef or chicken which one is better?

    Since your goals for now is to gain as much muscle mass as you can then stick with the 2% milk and beef; these should have approx the same amount of protein as the skim and chicken, but are higher in saturated fats, which you need for testosterone and higher calories. Then later in 4-5 months when you want to cut, switch to the skim and chicken . . .

    Lol Nasa nooo, but eggs either come scrambled or in an omelet.

    Special foods? please explain.

    We just get what ever anyone sends us in the mail. Like tuna, jerky, sunflower seeds, etc.
