View Full Version : Tell me if this looks ok!

Well I began weight lifting about a few months ago but when I started I had no idea what I should have been eating so I highly doubt I made any gain as far as muscles go. So lately I decided to read some articles online about weight lifting and found I need to have a good amout of protein (180g) along with carbs and fats. Edit: I am 6' 1" 180lbs, I am still pretty weak (only benching 105 for strength and curling 25)

I thought to myself how in the world am I going to eat 180g of protein in one day?

This is what I do:

Usually I have either cream of wheat or coco wheats (2 cups of milk and 1/2 cup of the mix)
Along with the cream of wheat or coco wheats I have 2-3 big glasses of milk (I would say they hold 1 cup and a half each)


6 scrambled eggs
2-3 big glasses of milk

I carry a pound of blanced peanuts with me in my book bag at school and I snack on those continuously until lunch.

2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
fruit snack package or breakfast bar
small dessert

After lunch I continue eating the peanuts

During the week I usually eat 2 pieces of grilled chicken
Along with 2 slices of wheat roll
1-2 glasses of milk

After dinner I continue to snack on the peanuts and drink milk when thristy.

Anyway I end up eating the whole pound of peanuts and almost a full gallon of milk which is more then my needed 180g of protein.

I am just a 15 year old kid who uses his friends basement as his weight lifing room. His basement has a bench, dumb bells, tred mill, stationary bike.

A normal every other day workout consists of 3 sets 12 on the bench and then 3 sets of 12 using the dumb bells.

My question is, is this too much protein for my body for those two workouts every other day?

(I am new here so hopefully this is in the correct forum)
