I also have ON Whey Protein already bought. I just forgot to buy a shaker.

I'd say repost this list in your other thread and keep it consolidated.

It'll be hard for us to put a food program together without knowing more specifics (calorie intake, goal). Go to the AHA page I linked before and figure out ROUGHLY what your intake should be.

Other than the two comments I put in above I'd say it all looks pretty good! I don't think anyone is going to put together a meal plan for you. If you come back with some rough drafts for your goals I'm sure someone will give you some help ironing out the kinks.

There are some good nutrition articles on this site and believe it or not there are some pretty decent ones over at t-nation. Do some reading, decide what your goals are and I'm sure you can come up with something basic.

What are your goals?

As far as the ramen goes, if you don't have a pre-existing heart condition, salt is fine, and fit the carbs into your macros.

Some good choices but the daily macros/calories is what is going to matter. Mix and match what you bought to fit a meal plan setup for your goals.

It looks like a whole lot of canned and processed food. Aside from 12 cans of fish and some eggs, you've got no meat on the list. Canned beans are vastly inferior to dry beans in both nutrition and flavor.

Buy more fresh food, less canned food. It's usually cheaper anyway. Buy some friggin' meat next time!

I think you are very much mistaken because I got pretty much this whole list off bodybuilding.com's supersite. OHHHH! Owned...

This is what I ate today:

Breakfast: 3 egg whites, 1 scoops of protein powder in water, oatmeal with strawberries, banana
Mid Morning Snack: Peanut Butter Bread sandwich with handfuls of pecans and almonds
Afternoon: Leftover rice and beans from last night along with some raw broccoli
Mid Afternoon snack: salmon in tortilla wrap and apple
Dinner: Ramen Noodles mixed in with can of tuna, one red potato, salad with tomatoes

Look good?

Owned? Hardly, fetus. I don't care where that list came from, fresh food will always be superior to canned food in every way. Natural > processed. Ramen = trash.

Like someone said above, your diet can't be judged accurately unless you provide macros. As someone else said, you never told us whether you're bulking, cutting, or recomping.

It also amuses me that you asked for a critique and, when you got one that wasn't what you wanted to hear, you went net-tard. How mature.

Why are you asking here if you have BB's super site to base your meal plans off of? Viking gave you pretty much the best advice to set up a real diet that will be both good for you and good for your pocket.

You owned yourself eating that crap, and already got on the bad side of a senior member of the board by acting like a **********.

Girls need more protein than what is in the food selection you posted, you expect to become muscular eating that? And ramen noodles... are you serious? Unless you're a freshman in college and have no regard for your health, or work in a sweatshop for a dollar a day, you should buy better food than ramen. Salad with tomatoes? No dressing? Are you aware dressing has calories? Or are you literally eating iceberg lettuce with some tomato slices?

Actually beans have compounds in them that will block protein from being absorbed. They are very poor choices if you are looking for protein.

If you're looking for fiber and gas and mild to poor flavor then beans are GREAT!

Which compounds are those?

It's entirely possible to prepare beans so they don't cause gas and if they don't taste good it's because you can't cook.

Your probably right, but I cant take the risk! Without beans I can power half of New York with my farts.

I got three quarters of the way through that list thinking you were a vegetarian.

Viking is right, focus your diet on whole, unprocessed foods. Eat more meat and less carbs.

Who knows without macros.
Breakfast- 1 cup oats? 2 cups? 10 Cups? (calories could range from 300-3000)
Snack- What is a handful. Nuts are immensely calorie dense (120-500 cals)
Afternoon- Same thing, 150 calores or 500 calories?
Same same same same

Without quanities and macros who knows if it decent. It could be 800g of carbs and 50g of protein. Who knows without you measuring the stuff out and telling us what you actually eat. Eating whey and donuts could be a better diet if portions are under control.

It's awesome. It is a better tasting oatmeal. My Grandmother used to make it for me all the time when I was a kid. Although at that age I would put a pound of sugar in it so I don't know how good it is without the stuff.
