Hey, i'm new to this forum and I'm looking to start going to the gym again. I've never eaten healthy so that's the main reason why i haven't seen any improvement in my body. I could do with somebody advising me on a meal plan... What foods to eat and when to eat them? I've brought whey protein and fine oats to mix with it for a calorie boost. i currently weigh 143lbs at 5ft 10. any help would be great :D

What's your age and situation? School, university, working?

Interesting that powder is the first thing you mention. Eat real food. Cut out junk food. Buy a couple of cook-books and learn some basic meals.

Meat and vegetables are the most important things. Protein powder is over-rated but will potentially help you gain weight.

I'm 21 and I work, Its a very active job so I burn alot of calories a day. I use protein powder because it's quick to use and because I'm at work it's a quick calorie and protein boost. Ive read that you should have 3 meals a day and 3 snacks a day is that right?

Ok so I've done a bit of research and started a rough meal plan. Here it is:

Breakfast: Cereal, Fruit, Fine Oats, Eggs

Lunch: Tuna, Brown bread, turkey slices, ham slices

Dinner: Chicken, Vegetables, Potatoes, Fish, Beans, Pasta

Snacks, power bars, cereal bars, nuts, fruit, peanut butter, yogurt

Is this ok? I'd like to add much more foods so I've got lots of variety, I'm living with my family so I can't really afford to buy steak all the time and full chicken breasts.
