Hey guys, I'm wondering how you think my diet is? This is what I ate today, about 2 hours apart. Let me know if there's anything I'm lacking. Thanks guys.

That all looks pretty inaccurate to me. First off, milk and oatmeal are not zero carbs. And creatine does not have 170 calories.

And whats the deal with the "homo milk"? J/K ;)


Also, what are you trying to do, bulk? cut?

26.1 x 9 = 234.9
114 x 4 = 456
196.6 x 4 = 786.4

that's 1477.3 calories, so i'm not sure where the 3024 number comes from. you need to look into a new program

Hard to say. As the above posters have said, theres tons of mistakes on that spreadsheet.

Agreed. Go back over the custom foods that you entered into fitday and make sure for each one that you have the calories, fat, carbohydrates, and protein entered appropriately. Also make sure to then accurately log each serving. It'll take a little time but once you get your fitday up to date with regular foods you use it becomes pretty easy to accurately track you macronutrients and calories.

^--Read posts 2 and 3. Others that I can see just quickly:

1/3 cup of almonds will not be 0 carb or 0 fat and obviously not 0 calories.
Apple oatmeal (though I'm not really sure what it is) would not be 0 carb.
4 eggs would not be 0 fat or 0 carb.
Yoghurt would not be 0 carb.
Grilled cheese would not be 0 fat or 0 carb.
With the whey protein shake, 9g of fat + 16g carbs + 52g protein = more than 300 calories.

The calories are coming from the sugar in that product, not the creatine.

That's not bulking that's awkward dieting. Eat More Meat. What's your activity level like?

I think you need an idea of what a "bulking" diet looks like:

Breakfast
3 or 4 eggs
1 cup oatmeal (pre cooking measurement)
Glass of juice
Multi vitamin
Fish oil capsules

Lunch
20 slices of turkey lunch meat
2 slices of cheese
4 slices of whole grain bread
(that makes two sandwiches)
2 peices of fruit
large glass of milk

Snack
Protein shake with milk and your creatine

Dinner:
Bunch o meat (4 pork chops or 2 steaks, or 3 chicken breasts, etc.)
2 servings of green veggies
1 potato or rice or buscuits
Large glass of milk

Desert
1.5 cups of cottage cheese
handful of almonds

Something else I want to add...

Only bulk when it's necassary. In other words, make sure you are working hard enough in the gym to warrant the extra food. Otherwise it's not going to be used for building muscle, it will be stored as fat. If your training is dialed-in and the intensity is high, then it's time to eat, eat, eat (ie. the end of a cycle or hitting PRs or hitting the 20 rep squats hard).

believe me guys, i really am trying my best, i honestly can say that i put in a hard effort all the time. also, what do you mean by intensity?

I'm talking about those times during the end of cycles where you are pushing harder than ever for new PRs.

^--Looks much more accurate. From the quick look that I had the only errors that I could see were:

Milk is not 0 carb or 0 fat.
Still the same problem with the protein shake that I mentioned in post 8.

It looks alright. I don't believe the calorie count either. And this is the main reason I don't count calories.

Are you actually going to be able to eat that many little snacks throughout the day?

marleau
01-12-2011, 11:09 PM
i swear to god its correct man i wouldnt cheat myself into adding more calories. it came straight from the boxes on the food man. also i dont understand how to change the calories for my whey? on the tub it says 150 per scoop so i just doubled it.

^--If the calories are correct then the macro breakdown is wrong,

Okay, well assuming it's right, and you eat that today, what does the diet look like tomorrow, or are you going to eat the exact same thing?

marleau
