I don't know what kind of balance i should have between fat, carbs, and protein. I'm not trying to bulk or cut really. I'm pretty new to lifting and actually paying attention to what i eat. I'm 6' 160 pounds. Not to active now (football's over:mad: ). Also, whats a good protein filled snack?? Thanx

well i think for overall health a good place to start is 40% carbs,30% protein,30% fat.

Oh, and when i asked for a protein filled snack, i didnt mean something like steak. thats not a snack. i need something quick. before i cared what went in my body, i always ate twinkies and stuff. i was looking for the protein packed equivilant.

i've been trying a lot of different protein bars, and they have all tasted like @ss to me. the tiger's milk bar i had last night wasnt to bad compared to the rest, but are there any that actually taste good?

Beef jerky can be a good snack.


Myoplex low carb bars are good. (Except the blueberry)

Pure Protein strawberry cheesecake and smores are great.
