View Full Version : Hows my diet?

05-09-2005, 02:05 AM
Right now i am 5'10" 190 lbs
I'm not sure how to check my bf% am i able to buy calipers somewhere?

I have been cutting for about 2 months now and have lost about 10 lbs, still no 6-pack thought so i much trudge onward

Here's what i am planning on doing once summer simester starts:

12 noon: 4 thermosine tabs and some ephedra if i can get my hands on it, light elliptical for an hour (how is swimming for cardio?)
2 pm: 4 eggs, multi, 4 fish oil tabs
4 pm: 2 cup cottage cheese (anything i can add to it to make it taste better?)
6 pm: 1 scoop protien powder, 1/4 cup maltodextrine, 1 teaspoon creatine , 4 thermosine tabs and some ephedra (the shake equaling 180 cals)
6 pm: lift
8 pm: 2 scoop protien, 1/4 cup malto, 1 teasp creatine (300 cals)
10 pm: multi, can of tuna with light mayo
12 pm: natty bp sandwich on whole wheat

i would do this every day except sat/sun when i would cheat and maybe do cardio

any suggestions?

the eggs, cottage cheese and tuna are the only meals i have on my list right now. I would really love if anyone could offer some meal ideas that are around 300 cals i don't care about taste so much i just want more deversety in my diet, monotony is what kills me.

please feel free to tear me apart, id rather be wrong now instead of later.

use fitday.com as its a really good way to track your cals

05-09-2005, 02:46 AM
well the cals arn't the problem
i can keep track of them fine
i was more worried about weather i didn't have a balanced diet

Then track your cals in fitday and see what the macro breakdowns are.

I would up your grams of protein to about 200-250.

05-09-2005, 09:05 AM

one sec

05-09-2005, 09:20 AM
ok this is the correct one

You don't eat enough, especially not enough protein and fat.

You eat less than I do cutting, and I'm a middle-aged woman who's smaller than you.

i hope my wife looks like you when she's in her mid 20s!

05-09-2005, 02:09 PM
so how old is your wife? 10?

05-09-2005, 02:12 PM
i dont think starting your days at 12 is a good idea.

05-09-2005, 02:32 PM
well i dont have a wife right now

also why is it a bad idea to start at 12?

How many cals should i get in a day?

05-09-2005, 02:34 PM
I woudl say about 2200-2300 how is your metabolism? If yo ucontinue at 1600-1700 your metabolism will slow down, and thats a no no.

05-09-2005, 02:38 PM
i'm not sure how quick my metabolism is
i think it's closer to the middle range
i would consider myself a mesomorph

Usually you track on www.fitday.com for a bit to find YOUR maint. cals, then drop 'em by 10-15%

05-09-2005, 02:44 PM
ok to make sure i am getting this right:

my maint cals would be the amount that i would need to neither gain nor lose weight?

05-09-2005, 02:49 PM
Right. :)

Your protein is fine.

Your carbs are on the low side, I would raise those a bit, somewhere around 200 grams is good. You don't have to get really precise with it.

You need more fats for sure, I would try to get at least 70 grams but no more than like 90 grams.

I like your breakfast, throw some whole wheat bread in there and glass of milk to make it taste better and to up your carbs in the morning.

I would up your calories to ~2100 and see how it works. Worst case scenario is you do not lose weight for a week. I'm pretty sure you will, and you will feel better in the gym and throughout the day.
