3228 cals. 41% pro. 20% carb. 39% fat.

I would replace the butter with olive oil in your breakfast.

For dinner, I would have either a yam or brown rice, as opposed to a baked potato or white rice.

Make sure the peanut butter in the sandwich is natural.

Other than that it looks pretty good to me. If your metabolism is fairly slow I think you are pretty good as far as total calories goes, but if it is medium or fast you are definitely going to have to add in more food at your size. Good luck with bulking!

Looks good, but I think you need some more healthy fats in there. Have you thought about taking fish oil or flax supplements?

The peanut butter is natural and I do take a tablespoon of flax. oil each day.
My metab. is around the medium level, I can lose and gain weight pretty easy.

So is that 3228 cals including the post-workout shake and the flax oil or w/o them?

04-24-2003, 01:46 PM
Thats without the shake and flax..

I think that's a good number of calories to start out with (assuming you are eating close to this right now...you don't want to make a huge jump or you will gain more fat than you want). Your best bet is to just keep track of your cals as you seem to be doing, and monitor your progress. Add or drop cals as you see fit, but always in small increments.

From what I've been eating it's not a big jump at all, but I just wanted to get some opinions on what I'm trying to do and eat.
Thanks for your help and advice.....

I would probably throw some carbs in with your afternoon snack, but this is really up to you. I think Vido made some good suggestions as well. Food choices look good IMO. What does your postworkout shake contain?

04-24-2003, 03:13 PM
Post workout shake contains whey, creatine and flax oil with water..sometimes I'll throw in a banana......

04-24-2003, 03:15 PM
Substitute dextrose/maltodextrin for the flax oil, as your body needs carbs more than anything else right after a workout.

04-24-2003, 03:16 PM
When would be good time to take the flax??

04-24-2003, 03:22 PM
Any meal other than post-workout should be fine.

Sounds good,,,,,Thanks...
