24 yrs old 230 pds 5 '11'

i eat this diet everyday besides saturday. I am of course looking to gain muscle mass, but not really wanting to do another bulk till the winter. gotta look good at the pool.

meal 1 pre workout,

1 cup instant oatmeal
2 slices white bread with nat peanutbutter
2 whole eggs
2 cups milk

meal 2,post workout,

1 cup instant oatmeal
1 cup cottage cheese
2 cups milk

meal 3
1 can tuna
1/4 cup corn
1/2 cup cottage cheese

meal 4
1 can tuna
1/4 cup corn
1 nonfat yogurt
2 cups milk

meal 5
1 can tuna
1/4 cup corn
1 nonfat yogurt

meal 6
1 can tuna
1/4 cup corn
1/2 cup cottage cheese
2 cups milk

altogether my cal are around 3000, with about 50 fat 320 carbs 340 protien. the reason for all the corn is i like the taste of corn with tuna. however i just learned about gi levels in corn being high, so i will be finding something else to mix with my tuna soon. also thinking of using dextrose instead of oatmeal around workout. what do you guys think? any help is apreciated.

thanks for all replyss

You're gonna need a lot more than 3000 calories to gain weight @ 230lbs.

Now we're talkin'. ;)

low bf not sure how much but i dont really have much

Olive oil is calorie dense and for the most part flavor neutral, adding 2 tbsp. to every meal would up your calories by like 360.

Well what type of caloric intake have you bulked on in the past. And how many cals do you usually cut on. I really wouldnt worry about the GI of corn when mixed with those meals, especially on only 3000 cals.

Agreed. I started my last CUT at 3000 cals @ 220 lbs.

Fat is necassary, a low-fat cut is a bad idea.

04-20-2005, 08:48 PM
why is a low fat cut a bad idea??

fats are an essential part of your diet and nutrition regardless of bulking or cutting. I'm also assuming a low fat cut may result in more muscle loss, dont know though.

Fat's are essential for hormone production (like mmm testosterone) as well as tons of other processes in the body. They are also very good at keeping you fuller, longer. Thus inhibiting you from binging.

im getting 50 grams of fat in every day isnt that enough?

04-20-2005, 10:55 PM

I'm a chick, I'm on low calories right now 'cause I'm cutting, and my fats for today are already over 63g, so you tell me.

I don't like fats to drop any lower than 30-35% of cals, sometimes as high as 50-55% of cals if it's not a training day and I'm on lower calories.

I'm of a mind that anything over about 30% is for comfort, but I don't like to see fats drop much below 30% of cals. I think this is probably prudent for most folks (ESPECIALLY on a cut, for appetite control), although there us most certainly variation between individuals.
