View Full Version : Diet help

I started a new diet that would stop me from being hungry, snacking between meals and eating just junk, and hopefully build some quality muscle. I weigh approx 85 kgs and has to take in roughly 130 grams of protein a day. Is eating natural foods the best way to get this protein or are protein powders advisable for at least a few meals of the day? Am I eating too much or too little of the right foods to get the desired gains, I am big, but bigger would be better. Is the following diet appropriate for a person who trains intensely 60-90 mins a day, 5 times a week?

6am: protein shake or fish followed by a bowl of porridge
9am: Tuna sandwhich
12pm: Jacket potato and low fat cottage cheese with chicken
3pm: Small chicken pasta dish or a high protein sandwich
5.45pm: Poached salmon + rice + salad
9pm: Small yoghurt and a protein shake or some form of protein food
11pm: 2 small eggs, poached

many thanks

I think you train too much, 5 times per week, you can train with such intensity only if you use steroids.

Regarding diet other members will answer you.

I train 3 times, as you saw, but I have problems with my calves, any way I think we have to discuss this in training section.

Is the diet I have lined up good or would it cause a strain due to too much food even if i did replace the late night snack for a slow digesting protein powder??
