    Please help arranging the meals.


    I'm continuing my diet and fixing it all the time. At the moment I'm having slight problems with the BF%. I haven't procressed much for a while - my body just doesn't want to give it away (yeah right).

    I'm about 17% @ 180 lbs with 6' body (not too much muscle, huh?).

    To my question - is this arrangement good.

    #1 0600 AM PREWORKOUT (about 1 cup oatmeal, 40 g quality protein and some berries)

    0700 AM WORKOUT

    #2 0800 AM POSTWORKOUT (same as pre)

    NOW here comes my question, should I eat one more carb meal about 11:00 or change it to fat/protein - and have the final (?) carb meal later?

    How many carb meals should I have TOTAL?

    I'm going 2000 calories @ 40/40/20

    Thanks a lot guys, it's a fine sport.

    Keep carbs around training, small amounts of healthy fats in your other meals, looks pretty good besides he little tweaks

    Certain fruits are every bit as good as vegetables, certain fruits are not. Strawberries, rasberries, blackberries, cherries and grapefruit are all every bit as good as almost any veggie short of the leafy greens. They add variety and flavor to diets, and should not be eliminated on the mantra that "fruit is bad, mmmmkay".

    Does anyone know how much time oats take to digest. I have just about 1,5 h to digest before I hit the iron. Should I include some dex/maltodextrin to breakfast/preworkout to get some carbs going ?


    Thanks again guys - you are super.

    i disagree, i like a malto shake either towards the end of my workout or right after. Given your bf% and your goals though, I agree glen. Glens view seems to be the trend these days.

    Just grind up some oats in a coffee bean grinder and add it to your shake.

    Ground oats make your shake have a puke-like consistency. If you can handle that, more power to ya

    LOL...Nah, as long as it's with water it is fine. Just slam it down. Now, mixed with milk, I can see being like puke.
