Hey, my mom's strictly opposed to me buying protein, and talking her out of it is impossible.. so I was wondering on if you guys know the basics of one, and I need a detailed diet, so I can basically just go to the store and cook my own stuff.

I'm planning to start this Monday, so I'd like answers quick.

I'm pretty heavy 240 @ 5"10, and I just wanna basically lose weight this summer for next wrestling season and I'd like to strengthen up, and I wanna start now so my walking weight would be lighter.

I find it easy to hit 200+g of protein with no supplements. Eggs/cottage cheese/fish/chicken. Have atleast one of those with each meal. Eggs in morning, cottage cheese snacks, and 2 cans of tuna for lunch, chicken breast for dinner. Add some beans/peanut butter/etc and I've had days with no supplements pushing 340g of protein.

Don't need a protein powder product. You're perfectly capable of getting all your protein from food.

:withstupi You can easily get more protein then you need from solid foods, I just use whey in PWO for some fast protein.

I get in 200g protein a day with ease - I virtually LIVE on cottage cheese.

Cottage cheese is a staple in my weight loss diet.

As long as you count the calories, dairy/fat/etc doesn't matter. Cottage cheese is an excellent source or protein and calcium/dairy. You can use non-fat or low fat if needed. I have atleast 1 cup of non-fat cottage cheese daily, 140 calories and 26 grams of protein is great.

She thinks it'll harm my liver.. and really takes into account that "Under 18" warning.

Are you already on the wrestling team? I would think your coach would have some good experience/advice....

Maybe if the coach recommended some supplements, your mom may be more receptive.

How about your doctor? Surely she would follow his advice...

lol, she won't believe a thing they say. She was born in asia.

Also, the coach didn't really give us guidelines for dieting... and when I played football, she got pissed at me for asking her to buy me some, the coach reccomended it.

Gotta mention that I was prescribed albuterol for my exercised induced asthma, but she didn't want me taking it, didn't allow me to get it.

It's funny tho.. she's a Nurse.

use your allowance and buy some whey and put it under your bed. Just ask her for a lot of milk (wioll she object to that?). Take it to your room, mix it up and voila.

Omg, I did that and got caught... my mom was looking for paper for the printer when I was at school and she found it.. is there a pill form? I can prolly get away with it for now since she's in out of state for a while.

Oh and for the diet.. I just need to know How much of the food i should eat.. ppl say their diets, but they're smaller or bigger.

we cant tell you how much you should eat, it depends on the individual.

keep track of what you eat for a week (cals etc). if you loose weight, great, keep at it. If not, reduce total no of cals consumed each day.
