View Full Version : Monday diet so far.

02-20-2006, 05:07 PM
I'm 6'0" @ 236 lbs currently. Approx b/f % 23/24. Normal caloric intake was 5,000 calories a day with 300 + grams protein, 400 - 600 Grams Carbs, and 100 G + Fat. I was just looking to add as much mass as possible over winter and ate pretty much everything. I'm now wanting to cut for spring/summer. This is the first day of what I ate. I know it's a drastic difference between what I did before but I keep my meals consistent so I am never hungry.


5:30 a.m.
5 Egg whites + 1 Yolk
2 cups skim milk + 1 cup oats + handful of raisins + cinnamon

Post Work Out

7:30 a.m.
50 Grams Whey Protein + 1 Banana


9:00 a.m.
1 can tuna + 1 can green beans + 1 TBSP Olive Oil


11:30 a.m.
1 can garlic Chicken Progresso Soup + 40 gram protein shake


2:00 p.m.
1 can Tuna + Small package of peanuts


4:30 p.m.

1 can Tuna


6:00 p.m
Large Chicken Breast + 1 TBSP Low fat Mayo + 1 Piece WW Bread

Right Before Bed

40 Gram Night-time Protein

I know I need to add about 20 more grams in good fats. I definately didn't know I was taking in that much carbs so I need to cut down on that as well. I think my protein is pretty consistent.

Any advice would be extremely helpful. I will be switching it up with chicken breasts from now on as well as the tuna.

Just hopin' I'm on the right track.

Thanks in advance guys.

Breakdown is this (THANK YOU Fitday ^_^, and built for referencing it so much :P)>>

Fat 24 % 67 G
Carbs 27 % 189 G
Protein 49 % 306 G

Without doing a calculation of ur LBM, i'd say your fats are pretty low, protein is good, and carbs are good, no need to cut down. Try to get more carbs on workout days than on rest days.

Built come in here and revise this for me ;-)

This looks pretty good actually - you can have a salad with avocado and dressing if you want - more fiber, more veggies. Dress it with olive oil and vinegar. Have that with dinner instead of the bread - move the bread to the mid-morning meal.

Looks good.

Personally, I'd drop the protein a tad, and up the fats to compensate.

i was thinking just that brickt, you beat me to it.

Yeah, that could totally work. OP's entering the "endless tweaking" stage.

Thanks again guys ^_^. Would be much tougher going w/o your advice =P.

Watch how much tuna you eat. There are tons of other sources of protein that you could supplement.

You might say - well yes, but tuna is so fast. Open the can and eat. Answer - cook on Sunday for at least M-W midday meals. Get some chicken, or salmon, or beef. Variety is a good thing.

Aye, I cooked 2 bags of chicken lasnight which will last me the entirety of this week =P.

I just might include a very lean cut of beef somewhere in there.

Like Built said, endlessly tweaking :P.
