    I hope for your sake this is a joke. A superdrol clone and methyl e with 1000 calories a day? Even if you weren't on anabolics 1000 calories a day is not healthy and will in fact hinder your fat loss instead of aid it (unless you are a lot smaller than you look in your avy with an already relatively low weight...)

    What are your stats?

    if your only consuming 1000 cals a day you definately need to be eating more. do you feel fatigued all the time? and you said your trying to put on some lean body mass correct? in order to gain msucle weight you need to be eating more calories than your burning and at 1000 cals a day you walk of and sleep as much as that. double your calorie intake but just be careful of what you eat. dont eat alot of saturated fats or simple carbs and you'll be just fine. if your only going to take in 2000 cals your probably still not going to be getting enough to put on much muscle.

    i dont ever really feel tired at all..i really need to sit down and add up all the calories i dont think i was adding right..because if i was only intaking 1000 calories id be shutting my body from important nutrients and i dont feel like im tired or any thing of that sort.....man i just cant see eating so much though....i get full off a 4 oz chicken breast and a can of green beans.....??? any ideas or maybe a different diet plan i could look into? like i said ive lost 55lbs on this diet and i feel fine!

    Yea but how much of that 55 lbs were muscle? 4 oz of chicken and green beans fills you up because your metabolism is slowing down to next to nothing.

    Depending on your goals and insulin sensitivity find your total calorie expenditure per day (calculate your BMR, theres calculators) and subtract 500 cals from it. Depending on how your body responds to certain macro break downs form a diet that you respond well to (proteins/carbs/fats.) If you need help forming a diet check out the nutrition sub-forum or looking into the Anabolic Diet, CKD diet, or again just your regular 40/40/20 basic split.

    So you are not sure about your diet, not counting calories, think you are taking in around 1000 calories a day, your trying to gain strength and mass, and you have started taking oral liver toxic steroids?.....

    you haven't given any of your stats (height, current weight, body fat, diet) so its impossible to say what is a sufficient amount of calories.

    Depending on your daily caloric expenditure from training as well as how long you plan on cutting for I would say get your calories up to 2500-2600 at a minimum (thats a rough estimate but should be in the ball park of where you should be at.) If you want to get down to lets say around 10% bf you won't do it by starting out at 2000 calories a day because you will eventually plateau and have no where to drop calories at. I'm also just gonna throw this out there, you have any PCT planned/how long have you been taking the steroids?

    well in 35 minutes of hiit training on the treadmill i burn about 450 calories and i weight train for about an hour so id say in the range of about 750 to 800 calories...not including what i burn at work.

    well from the looks of it you are missing quite a bit. You are eating a ton of chicken throughout the day and that seems to be it. You really need to add carbs and fats to any of those meals as just protein is not going to be a very successful diet. I would definitely bump up the healthy fat, carb intake as well as add more veggies.

    Well first i would mix up the diet and get protein from some other sources to keep from getting sick of chicken. You could look into things like turkey, salmon, beef etc. Also look to add some healthy carbs around your workouts like oats, sweet potatoes, brown rice for example. Also maybe add some nuts or PB throughout the day to get some more fats in

    lol well if you can eat all that chicken than thats fine, i eat a TON of turkey every day because its one of teh few lean sources i can get from my cafe. Still pretty high on protein in my opinion. The overall calories looks much better. I would opt to add in more carbs and fat while lowering the protein and staying around 2600 cals. I do not know the timing of the meals you have on there but have some carbs with breakfast pre and post workout and add some fat with the other meals. I would probably add some whole eggs in with your egg whites bc that will help with some more fats as well

    ok so how many meals are you taking in? and wen do you workout? with that i can try to formulate the diet better man

    yea for pre and post workout complex carbs anything like some whole wheat bread, oats, brown rice, or sweet potatoes would be fine and all sources i personally really like. Have that along with some chicken and you'd be good to go
