with your height and weight, you need to eat quite a bit. you don't need to worry if you had one cheat day. i think you should quit smoking if you are really that worried

this is the first time ive smoked since last summer i dont plan on doing this again but can you give me a nice routine of grams of fat and carbs that i can eat and remain toned? admiral seems to know his stuff

if you have a cheat day once in a while, you won't kill yourself. you can use cheat days to keep youself from being tempted other days when you are keeping your diet strict.

as far as how much you need in fat and carbs, you decide. most people say between 20-30 percent of your calories should come from fats. some eat less, some eat more. you have to experiment and see what works for you

ight if i wanted to have two cheat days in a row and never another cheat day...will i be ok?...im talkin about the carb well cookies the whole pack is 42 grams of fat and 42 carbs

the biggest thing isn't how much fat or carbs it has. it is how many calories and how it fits into your diet. it ALL comes down to your calorie balance. more than maintainence and you gain, less and you lose(assuming not too low)

the whole box is 630 calories and so far ive eaten a bowl of cheerios for breakfast and for lunch a couple turkey sandwiches...think i can afford today as a cheat day?

that is your call. you have to decide what you can and cannot handle. with your size, i would bulk. i imagine you are pretty skinny, given your stats. you are probably and ectomorph which means that even if you eat those cookies that you won't gain an ounce of weight

this time last year i weighed 168 and i was fat then i just worked out and ate less...i lost all that weight im just thinkin maybe i can eat these cookies now and nothin else for the day...then get back on the routine i was on before...does that make any difference to what you were thinkin?

01-30-2005, 01:42 PM
its not a cheat day if you only eat cookies. it is a crazy day. i would say go ahead and eat the cookies, and your regular meals so you get the proper nutrients, etc. then if you are worried about putting on weight, do some extra cardio for a couple days

ight yeah...i do 400 sit ups and 500 crunches everyday, how old are you...you sound like you been doin this for a while

01-30-2005, 01:46 PM
if you want a good body, don't waste your time with 1 million sit ups and a zillion crunches. get a good lifting routine and be sure to incorporate weighted ab work. that will get you a ripped midsection. and i'm 19 with a thirst for knowledge

ight...you got AIM or somethin? im about to eat those cookies

01-30-2005, 01:52 PM
