I just started a journal in the "online journal" forum. Here's my diet for anyone interested. It's expensive, but it works. This is the diet portion copied from the thread:

I've been making some great gains on my diet and training schedule, so I'll keep track of my schedule on here for anyone who's interested.

Meal 1 - 7:00
-6 eggs(4 white)
-PBJ
-8 oz OJ
-2 tbsp flax

Meal 2 - 9:30
-1 can Tuna on
-2 slices wheat bread
-1 pk oatmeal
-10g whey

Meal 3 - 12:00
-1 Lg. Chicken breast
-2 pk oatmeal
-Banana
-10g whey

Meal 4 - 2:30
-Roast beef on
-Wheat bagel
-10g Whey

Meal 5 - 4:30
-1 can tuna on
-2 slices wheat bread
-1 pk oatmeal
-10g Whey

Meal 6 - 7:00
-8 oz steak
-Whole grain rice(2 cups cooked)
-1 cup grapes
-10g Whey

Meal 7 - 9:00
-8 oz Salmon
-1 slice wheat bread

Meal 8 - 10:30
-30g whey
-2 tbsp flax


Daily:
Calories - 4200
Protein - 340g
Carbs - 425g
Fat - 100g

I just upped my protein intake a week ago from 275g to 340g by adding 10g of whey to several meals in my regular diet. I've put on 10 lbs of (what appears to be) good muscle mass in the last 8 weeks on this diet schedule. I plan on maintaining this diet for 4 more weeks, hopefully putting on 5-10 more lbs. Then, I'll gradually bring my calories down to about 3400 - 3500 and get ripped up again.

yo gino, looks good !

It is very simular to mine actually.. I used to eat a lot of pasta , and tuna, now I have moved over to more chicken and oats.. I generally eat oats 4/5 times a day and chicken the same.. 6 eggs and oats in the morning too....

I ate consistetly good this week too and am gonna make this a must all the time.. My calories are only at 3500 now but I am planning to up them but I reckon my protein, carbs and fat are about the same ratios as yours too !

Good to see you making progress !

looks very good!

well thought out and I like the idea of having a small amount of fast acting protein such as the whey with each meal to contsantly keep your nitrogen levels high.

Thanks

Yeah, instead of replacing meals with protein shakes, I thought I'd just supplement each meal with a small amount of whey to get more protein. I try to get as many nutrients from whole foods as possible. I only drink MRPs if I'm really pressed for time.

Also, vitamins that I take include:

Twice a day:
-Multi
-C
-E
-Calcium
-b complex

3+ times a day:
-chromium picolinate
-di-indolin

Gino- what happens if you take di-indolin on its own?

It supresses estrogen levels. Ideally, the bigger the ratio of test to estrogen, the better the results of training.

Where's all your fruit gone! You passed the torch to me i reckon....

Wow, I'm surprised you noticed. I've reduced my fruit intake and upped my complex carb intake for a change. I still eat 2-3 pieces of fruit each day and have OJ in the morning.

Gino- that's what I figured. i have a bottle of the stuff from a while back; i thought it might do the same thing, but i haven't taken it yet. Think i should?

I'd like to know the answer too. I am looking for vitamins to add to my:

Multi
B-12


-

Chromium picolonate controls glycemic levels in the body, doesn't it? I read somewhere though, where it can accumulate in the body and increase the risk of cancer. But then again, clipping your toenails nowadays causes cancer.

di-indolin sounds good. Just going to see if it will be beneficial to me in any way.

Well, i was wondering about the theory.

I guess the compound competes with estrogen for receptor sites. Does the body figure "more estrogen (even though there isn't), must increase testosterone" (Thus creating a bigger test/est ratio), or will it realize the lack of estrogen that's binding and increase THOSE levels? err...

No clue on my part. (Which is why it's still on my shelf)

Looks excellent Gino.

I got a few questions if you don't mind.

What Whey are you using ?
Are you having the Whey with Water ?
Are you trying anything else with this (;) ;)) ?

Have you though about adding Magnesium to your vits and minerals ?

and .... g'damn your food bill must be through the roof ..... Salmon and Steak .... damn .... you'll be having caviar sandwiches next. :)

"Simply Whey" by EAS - I pay only $25 for 5 lbs
And yes, I mix the whey with water.
Am I trying anything else with this? Of course I am - weight training. lol

Maybe I will add Magnesium to my arsenal of pills.

I did groceries 2 days ago and spent about $110. We'll see how long they last. Not long at this pace.
