Looks like it needs ALOT of work. Read builts post on diet help and go from there. Protein is way way way way way too low. Calories are probably way too low. Fats are too low.

Link is in my sig.

Just clicked on the link and re-read your diet. Interesting - you're basically following standard nutritional guidelines for 55% of cals from carb, 15% from protein and 30% from fat.

Remarkable how badly it works ...

Are you lifting?

im lifting heavy weights. and only do a little cardio in order to get a little blood flowing. what do you suggest to up protein and why? I have a good amount of fat on me but also alot of muscle. I'm aiming for 2000 calories a day....is that to low? I need to lose some fat and would like to gain muscle also. what should my levels be at??

Yeah, as Built posted above, it's a 'diet' for a sedentary, normal person. Most of us around here are neither.

1) Lots of carbs, the majority refined/worthless to your body, apart from giving you energy.

2) Protein is damn low. You need AT LEAST ~270g, everyday, for your size.

3) Fat is damn low. You need AT LEAST ~130g, everday, for your size.

So, everyday, if you are gonna lose weight effectively, you must have 270g protein and 130g fat. This will help you body hold onto muscle and drop fat, and it will help with any appetite problems

At 270g protein, and 130g fat, that is approx 2250~ cals per day, as a Baseline. You said you are trying to cut on 2000 cals? That is REALLY LOW for a guy your size, unless you have some kind of thyroid problem.

Now for some carbohydrates, these will bring your daily calories up to a 'safe level,' so that your body doesn't do some wacky stuff in a state of crisis. (Hold on to fat like glue, burn off muscle, **** your metabolism)

To start off with, I want you to get 200 carb a day. Therefore you daily nutrients are 3050~cals : 270p/200c/130f.

Try to nail that into fitday, consistantly, for a week, eating GOOD FOOD (read the Blue Link in my sig) Post back after said week with your weight. Then we can move on from there :)

do you reccomend any shakes if i cant get all the stuff ineed? keep in mind im fat too :D

02-02-2006, 08:51 PM

You don't need anything but proper food at this point.

02-02-2006, 08:59 PM
