I'm a long time lurker and this is my first time posting. I'm setting up a log here to keep track of my gains and to allow room for criticism and suggestions.
Here's my stats:
Weight: 195 lbs
I'll post some pics up. I'm not sure about the bodyfat % I'm really just guesstimating. I'm just coming off a cut in which I was on keto diet. My macros for the lean bulk are going to be around 40/40/20. I'll be using fitday to keep track of all that stuff. Here's an example of a typical day:
Meal 1: 1 cup of oats, 2 tbsps of natty pb, and 6 egg whites from egg starts.
Workout: VPX zero carb protein shake post-workout
Meal 2: 2 turkey sandwiches on 100% whole wheat bread
Meal 3: 2 cans of tuna made into 2 sandwiches on 100% whole wheat bread
Optimum nutrition protein shake (2 scoops)
Meal 4: 8 oz grilled chicken, 1 cup of brown rice, 3 tbsps of cashews or peanuts
Meal 5: Lean beef or chicken with 1 cup of brown rice, 3 tbsps of cashews/peanuts
Before bed, 1 scoop of optimum nutrition and one scoop of vpx zero impact.
That's a basic outline. I like to mix up the foods as much as possible but sometimes it has to be repetitive. Obviously this isn't going to be my diet everyday but I will be shooting for 5 whole food meals that are high in protein and carbs with some fat. I start my new workout routine tomorrow. I'll post the workout later tonight or sometime tomorrow. Pics will be up later.
