My diet Plan (rookie) please help
Here is my diet plan I am trying to revise a few things that I need help with....
1. Will I get fat on carbs?
2. How can I bulk without gaining a load of fat
4. Is it a bad thing to be "free" during too meals a day I never miss that meal btw and usually just load up on some protein I love some times I have a slice of pizza or two but thats it. I have really low fat in the rest of the diet I figured that would be ok. (never any cookies or snacks)
5. All I drink is water and gatorade all day is that ok? good? bad?
6. Is it ok to not eat natty peanut butter when I make pb j's cause it isnt used that much.... and natty TASTES LIKE ****

Trying to keep ya lean here.
1) No- carbs don't make people fat. Eating too much food, making the wrong choices, and inactivity is what makes people fat. However, not all carbs are created equal. You must stay away from simple sugars (processed, packaged bull****), and eat more complex sources.
2) Take your bulking slowly. You should not need to feel like you HAVE to put on 10 lbs in a month, and nobody ever needs to eat 4,000 calories (some do, not you or I). Make small goals for yourself and continue to set the bar higher and higher. The worst advice I could give you is "you need to bulk. EAT AND EAT TILL YOU CAN'T EAT ANYMORE." There is no reason why you need to be have a 36+ waist to be considered a big guy.
3) Yes- do cardio 2 or 3 times a week. No need to go crazy, but it is important.
4) The more dedicated and anal you are, the better your results will be. Its that simple. Pizza isn't "ok every now and then", its terrible. My advice is to plan all of your meals ahead of time.
5) Drop the Gatorade- despite the nice sports commercials, it still has 12 grams of pure sugar per serving. There are times when sports drinks are useful, but not too many in our case.
6) Don't eat PBJs in the first place. There are much better, easier things you can eat.

1) Why don't you just put your 6:30 and 7:20 meals together? Eat the egg whites with the cereal. There are better cereal choices out there than Raisin Bran. If you really like cereal, look into high fiber ones, or just plain rolled oats. I assume and hope you're eating this with skim or lowfat milk.
2) Don't eat anything that comes in a wrapper (bars). They're junk.
3) Vegetables are generally better than fruits.
It seems to me like a lot of the foods you are eating are foods that are considered healthy among the general public, but really aren't optimal. My advice is to look at some old threads and see what foods are talked about in different diets. Off the top of my head, here are a bunch of foods:
Eggs, Chicken, tuna ,salmon ,LEAN red meat, skim milk, cottage cheese, fat free cheese, broccoli, oats, sweet pots, apples, mulit-grain breads, high fiber cereals (Fiber One is a good choice)....

OK, I'm new to this website and I've read that an ECY stack is supposed to help with fat loss and getting cut. I've never really added any kind of supplements to my regimen, what exactly is an ECY stack? I'm anxious to try some products, but I want something that's effective but won't make me manly! (cuz I'm a girl ).Originally Posted by DieTrying

We'll need proofOriginally Posted by MUSCLEBABE
Seriously though. Get your diet in order first otherwise no product will help you and if it does the results will be short-term only because when you come off the product you'll rebound.

Proof? Hmmmm.....I'll have to work on that one.Originally Posted by houseman
So what is an "ECY Stack?"

I thought that it was probably Ephedrine and caffiene, but I wasn't sure what the "Y"Originally Posted by houseman
was. Now what does Yohimbie do? I am so not up on this stuff! I'm good on the diet,
and on my workout, but this is the area where I'm lacking.
What's the scoop on this stack? So you take it before your workout? How much and
all that stuff? (I know it probably depends on your size.)

I'm going to suggest you do a little reading before I answer any further questions.
Try to learn some of these things on your own first and then hit us up with your questions.
Not a flame, but I don't want to give advice on a compound to someone who has yet to understand it or its' effects.
11-22-2004, 12:47 PM
No problem! I definitely would not try anything without studying about it first. I'm actually kind of reluctant to start anything as it is.Originally Posted by houseman
But, I am a sponge for knowledge and I think I need to broaden my horizons in this area! Do you have any suggestions on what the best resource would be to study info. on anabolics and supplements?

ECA (Ephedrine/Caffeine/Aspirin) is a safer choice than ECY if you haven't used stimulants before
Glad to see you want to lear, do some searches on what you wanna know, read the stickies, and keep reading.
