Hey, what's going on guys... I guess I'll tell you a little about my self so you can help out better :)

I'm 17
-5'6
-134lbs
-Fairly Skinny

Just really started "working," out today. I run Cross Crounty every day, but going to the gym, today is my first.

But a 1year membership to Planet Fitness

Have never checked the back of something before eating it, I just eat what is in my house at that time, which isnt usually much lol.

I just have a few questions to make the workout count.




[list=1]
How many calories and how much protein should I be getting daily, to get muscle, look defined and gain a wee bit of weigh?
With what foods do I get this with? I'm only 17 so its not like I can come home and cook a chicken anytime I want lol, so what are stuff I can just eat with out little to no preperations?
What should I tell my mom to cook me for dinner, the real meal. Nightly?
I mainly wanna focus on my upper body, i.e 6-pack...Big muscles in my arm, but not to big...etc
[/list=1]

Im kind of a picky eater, which I know isnt good, but somethings that just taste like ****, I can hold down, no matter how good it is for me...


I really appreciate the help, cause I did a few searches before posting, and I didnt really find what I was looking for.. and some of the ones that did have what I needed, I didnt quite understand the lingo :-/

Well,
Thanks Again
Doug

***Post your workout in the Training forum to get pointers and maybe even start a journal to help us help you!

***A good base is 1 gram per lb. I would start there if I were you. Make sure you get plenty of carbs and good fats too though!
With what foods do I get this with? I'm only 17 so its not like I can come home and cook a chicken anytime I want lol, so what are stuff I can just eat with out little to no preperations?
***Tuna, Hormel canned turkey chili, PB&J sandwiches, deli meat sandwiches
What should I tell my mom to cook me for dinner, the real meal. Nightly? ***see comment below on this.
***Protein: lean steak, chicken, fish, lean beef
Fats: olive oil, fat from the meat
Carbs: whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, potato, veggies
I mainly wanna focus on my upper body, i.e 6-pack...Big muscles in my arm, but not to big...etc
***You still need to work your legs :D

Regarding dinner being "the real meal" the two most important meals of your day are actually your breakfast and what you eat postworkout.

I hope I helped!
