View Full Version : 210-240: Diet Check

09-27-2008, 01:34 AM

I just started with the powerlifting club at my college, and I am looking to gain weight with the goal being 235-240 by June 2009. I feel that I am still milking my newbie gains at this point, so attempting to enter Rhodestown is probably not the best option until later down the road.

Pre-information: I do not eat dairy products as they screw with my acne and digestion.

Typical Diet

7:00 - 4 eggs, 4 pieces of toast, 1 cup oatmeal, 1 apple, 1 banana, 3 cups OJ

10:00 - 2 peanut butter & honey sandwiches

1:00 - 1 cup kidney/garbanzo beans, some spinach, 3 hamburger patties (or chicken breast), 2 pieces toast

3:00 - couple handfuls of almond & dried cranberry mix

5:00 - Something close to the 1 o clock meal

6:30 - couple handfuls almond & cranberry

7-9 Training

9:30ish: 3 cups brown rice and gemma protein shake (75g); or 2 turkey sanwiches with extra meat

any suggestions? I am in the dorms and have access to the dining halls for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Suggestion = maintain consistency, looks like a good diet, but if you don't keep with it it won't help.

What kind of routine/split are you on?
How many calories does that diet add up to?
Do you use a site like Fitday.com at all? (it's awesome, I recommend it if you don't)

I entered it in on fitday and it comes out to about 4200 calories.

As for training:
M: Squat
T: Bench
W: Upper Back
R: Deadlift
Sat: Bench

all of the training is much more intense that what I have been used to training alone.
