Ok guys im a newbie to this forum:p and have already posted on this forum (the training side of things) and had no response at all:cry:
So hopefully i can get some feedback and results from now:strong:
I have been training for 2 and a half years now and am a 'Novice' when it comes to food and dieting. I understand that you need 'X' amount of protein each day to grow,but how do you know of what foods to eat and which food provides the most amounts of protein. Also would like to understand and get to know about carbs and calories and body fat etc.

I need a good diet to follow if somebody can give me some ideas of what to eat and when to eat etc that would be great:D.

I generally eat well and try and focus on good foods only but sometimes i can not as not having a proper diet to follow:( .

:help: thx in advance

Lot of questions there and a lot of opinion in the answers. Guess it depends a lot on what you are looking to do, Bulk or Cut. I assume Bulk.

I guess most people would say for protien fish. egg white, whey, chicken (there are tons more!). Carbs would be whole grains and fruits (?) and fats would be fish, flax, PB and olive oil for starters.

Probably be helpful to post some of your ideas/meals and have people critique what you are doing.

Orignal delboy-
I am new to this myself, but the links below really helped me get started.
ions- if you are getting started check these links out. It really helped me understand the basics.





I found them to be really useful and time well spent.
Good luck.

To find the nutrition facts on a food you can just look on the package and it will tell you. If you can't find it there, go here www.fitday.com
Also, try to eat at least 5-6 smaller meals per day.

BREAKFAST 3 eggs (2 yolks) i have it scrambeld with brown/white bread. i use to eat boiled eggs but after a period of time i couldn't take it no more so i switched to scrambeld. Have also musli after the eggs, muslis is tescos.

FRUIT like apple banana during my afternoon break.
get home and i'll have a banana before i go to the gym.
After workout i have a protein drink (at the gym)
Get home and have boiled chicken breast with vegies and potatoes.

Ok guys so you have my diet above;) please see what is wrong with it as i want to get maximum protein out of my meals.

Your suggestions would be much helpfull:cool:

I don't think it's enough food. You're looking at around :
Breakfast : 400 calories (give or take with bread/egg size)
MidMorning : 250-300 calories (except w/ mayo which is variant)
Lunch: 300 calories (serving size? sauce?)
Fruit : 35, 80, 120 calories. (peach, orange/apple, banana)
Protein Drink: Variant again...I'd say 300-400 calories.
Dinner : 400 calories-ish

About 1920 calories. That's enough to keep you at your weight up if you're like 155lbs.
