05-21-2002, 08:40 AM
K.. here is my background.. i eat really badly.. either one or 2 meals a day.. and dont get NEAR my needed protein intake.. so i revised my diet. I dont have the willpower right now to go completly to a hard core diet, but i figure some change is better then none..
here is what i have started doing..
eating more meals per day.
i REALLY like tuna, and i have no problem devouring a can of tuna which is aobut 29g of protein, 1g fat and zero carbs.
Im baking boneless skinless chicken breasts..

so what i am doing is in the morning, i have a "bar" or eat.. either a protein bar or a 'meal replacement bar"
then i have a can of tuna , 2-3 hours later one full chicken breast, and then another can of tuna. in the evening i will either have more tuna, a chicken breast, or a betastatin shake.

i am also eating various vegtables during the day.. either some baby carrots ( raw) or beans/corn.

what do you guys think of this diet? i am working heavy weights, and am going to start cardio on monday next week.
thanks in advance.

Need more carbs and more fat from the looks of it. I haven't tried to calculate the ratios though...I suggest you figure out how much protein/carb/fat you are eating and start working from there.

To help even more, your stats (height, weight, etc.) and goals (i.e. cutting or bulking) would be great.

stats.. o.k..
5'7" 287 lbs @ 28% ( had this checked and confirmed)
my goal is to keep gaining some muscle mass, but burn off fat. I am not looking for the kinda weight loss that would come from a SERIOUS weight loss diet, but just slowly lose weight as i gain muscle.
i have set my goals in 3 stages.
(1) 275lbs
(2) 245 lbs
(3) 225 lbs.

currently i am workin on goal number 1.

How much fat and carbs do i need in my diet?
also, turkey is not an option i cannot eat it.. i HATE the way it tastes..
thanks guys.

When in doubt, eat chicken =P.

Your goals look great. Taking it one step at a time and making sure you aren't trying to rush your body is a good start.

If you're aiming to cut the fat, multiply your weight by 12 and it's a good start at your caloric intake for a cutting diet. You won't gain as much muscle mass, but you should get some and look leaner.
