View Full Version : Advice on my "current" Diet

05-10-2002, 05:48 PM
After 2 weeks, I gained 8 lbs. 4lb and 4lb.

I'm doing low reps, going to failure. I'm feeling the "burn" every "day after" I work out.

Currently 153lb, 6'3, 18yo. Here's my diet.

8am Breakfast:
Honey Bunches of Oats. (Cereal, but it tastes great and has decent stats)
With a Glass of OJ (Glass = 3 cups)

Snack at 9am
3 Apples

First Lunch, 11am
3 eggs (4 on days I work out, going to up both by one egg in a week)
Glass of 1% Milk (3 cups)

2nd Lunch 1pm
Can of Tuna with a stalk of Celery and a tablespoon of Miracle Whip (low fat mayo, =P )
Another Glass of 1% Milk

Snack/small meal 3pm
32g Protein MetRX bar.
Glass of 1% Milk

Work out at 3:30-4:30

Another Can of Tuna, if I am lifting that day that day.

6pm Dinner
Chicken / Pasta for the most part.

9pm Snack

How's it looking? I'm thinking on days I work out, I need to toss in some more cals somewhere else, but I'm not sure where. As it is, I am eating when I'm full.

Seems to be working so far, just thoughts, and suggestions on where to go once this "isn't enough"

Thanks folks.

I assume by "4lb and 4lbs" you mean 4lbs of fat and 4lbs of muslce. Or do you mean 4lbs per week?

Anyways, couple of suggestions:

1)Eat some protein at breakfast and at your 9pm snack.

2)Have a shake post-workout comprised of ~40g of whey protein, and 100g of dextrose/maltodextrin rather than a can of tuna.

Ok, thanks.

By 4lb and 4lb, I mean 4lb a week. Unsure what it's composed of. I would assume it's muscle, I increased my reps the 2nd week, where as I couldn't the previous. .
