View Full Version : Review the Ultimate Lean Muscle Diet
03-12-2002, 01:27 PM
Ok... maybe it isn't the ULTIMATE lean muscle diet, but I think it is pretty damn good after about 10 revisions.
Still, nothing is ever perfect - so I'd like to hear some opinions. It's attached in Word format and includes the breakdown of each food (took awhile to compile).
To much protein (over 400g ?)
To many supplments (whey OK, maybe Glutamine)
To many calories (isn't cutting privy to caloric deficit ?) Unless you were eating a bunch more cals. when bulking, 3400 seems like a lot for a cutting diet. (are you planning on gradually decreasing calories over the next 8-12 weeks ?)
In any event, it seems like you put a lot of work into this diet and if it doesn't meet your needs, you'll figure it out, I'm sure.

Ok, let me clarify. This is not a cutting diet. It is a diet for bulking without putting on fat (i.e putting on lean muscle mass). Hence the name.
As far as supplements, I'm only taking whey isolate, glutamine, and creatine. The Ny-Tro Pro-40s are MRPs - so that is a meal, not a supplement. The only other supplement is an ECA stack (Dymetadrine Xtreme) for pre-workout energy.
I have protein so high because I'm on a 5 day/week training schedule.
That being said, more suggestions?
Thanks for the clarification . . . Whenever I hear the word LEAN I assume cutting is the desired effect.
Given all we know, isn't it a bit difficult to add lean mass without gaining some fat in a single operation ?
We'd all love to add lean mass, w/o the fat, but it seems one is contrary to the other. Personally, when I've tried to eat LEAN, but wanted MASS it just didn't work.
Subsequently, I eat for MASS and live with the excess fat during MASS phases. When the time seems right I then change gears eating to gain a LEAN condition. (I don't really cut as I feel my best at about 10% b/f)
Personally, I follow different guidelines that seem to meet my needs, but I'm different than you.
Bottom line is . . . If this diet meets YOUR needs, then it's a good diet.
All any of us can do is pass along our thoughts and maybe a few well intentioned suggestions for consideration and evaluation.
