View Full Version : Critique my diet please!

05-10-2006, 09:44 PM
I'm a new member, and new to proper nutrition. I've been working out since Nov 05, but with no knowledge of how important nutrition is...

I'm a vegetarian (egg protein from nitrean and opticen only), and at 162 lbs.
My fitday logs are at http://www.fitday.com/webfit/publicjournals.html?Owner=ScroogeSF
I've been eating pretty much the same thing for the last month. I'm gonna call Nov 05 - April 06 my dark age...working out but not eating right. Thanks to a friend and this forum, I think I'm eating a lot better (more protein)

My general worry is, I was at 155 a month ago, and am at 162 as of yesterday. Unfortunately, I'm noticing I've gotten fatter (bigger love handles...). I haven't done a body fat testing or anything.

I have no goals as far as weight goes...if I can look good without being fat...the actual number doesn't matter.

Thanks for the help!

diet looks pretty good,i'm vegetarian as well,i wouldn't bother with the cereal bar though.Do you eat eggs?

Props on eating that much protein but get some more fats in there: nuts and seeds would be an excellent choice, also olive oil, avocados etc.

I'm also a vegetarian, check out my journal (link in my sig) for my diet details.

I've doing the WBB#1 routine for 2 weeks now. Before that, it was chest + triceps, legs + shoulders, back + biceps.

I ate the cereal bar yesterday...cause I was hungry for the first time in a month. It's needless sugar, but I didn't have any other food around me. I'll avoid it from now on. I don't eat eggs...just the stuff from Nitrean and Opticen. I wish I could stomach eating eggs...but I can't.

Thanks the heads up about the fat. I'll add more olive oil in my diet.
