Greetings, all,

Just found these forums on Google. What a godsend!

I have been lifting casually for about 2 years. I am 5'10, 165lbs with 13% body fat. I decided that it was time to get serious though, so I am working on getting my diet regulated.

My main goals are to gain muscle mass while losing body fat. In the end, being as big as WWF's TripleH would be a MAJOR plus! :)

What would be some good sources of fat in my diet?
Does the amount of sodium or sugar effect either of my goals?

Any supplements other than Protein Powder and Cell-Tech you would recommend?

Thanks for your help! Look forward to speaking and learning with you all!

Yes ,another Triple H fan. By the way some good sources of fat are flaxseed oil,natty peanut butter,almonds

Sodium makes you retain water so you lose some cuttness and sugar is evil.

What would you recommend for my amounts of sodium and sugar? It seems that I am having a hard time avoiding it in what I am eating.

It's not really if you are eating, but should be when you are eating it. Save the 'table sugar' for post workout. If you want help with your diet, post what you are eating as of now.

7:00am - Pro Complex Protein Mix with 1 cup skim milk and a bananna
9:30 - Orange Juice and Nonfat Yogurt
12:00 - 2 cups chicken salad on wheat w/ lettuce tomato and provalogne cheese
2:30 - Pure Protein Bar
5:30 - Chicken Breast with a veggie


I also take Cell-Tech right after my workout

I think you should definately have 1 or 2 more meals. Your last meal is at 5:30 and you don't eat again until 7 in the morning.

That's too long to go without feeding your body.

** By the way, you go to Purdue or something? **

OK. How about another protein shake at 7pm and then 10pm have a cup of oatmeal w/ skim milk?

And, yes I do goto Purdue: computer science major.

Have the oatmeal at 7 and the shake at 10, you want protein before bed, not carbs.

I think you do need more carbs in your diet in the form of oats, brown rice, more veg or some pasta.

Dont have too many supplements, remember a supplement is ment to do just that (supplement your diet) not replace it.

Eat more eggs.

Is 150g carbs a day not enough? Should I eat more on my lifting days. I lift 3 days a week, and cardio the other.

I eat about 250 grams of carbs per day and I'm 'cutting'.

OK. I got 2000 calories, 250g carbs, 30g fat, and 170g of protein today. Here is what it looks like

9:15 - Pro Complex Protein Mix w/ 1 cup skim milk
12:00 - Grilled Chicken Breast with Carrots and Green Beans
2:30 - Whole Grain Bagel with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
6:30 - Cell-Tech (after my workout)
7:00 - Pure Protein Mix with 1 cup skim milk and a bananna
9:30 - Dannon Yogurt *8oz* and 1/2 cup of lowfat cottage cheese

I am thinking of substituting the first protein shake with 4 egg beaters and a glass of milk.

How am I doing? Is it a keeper?

** Good idea. Or just 4 eggs(cheaper).

** Look'n good. Not sure about the fat though. Might want to up it just a bit. Maybe some flax seed oil before you sleep.

OK. Should I eat like that every day, or just the days I lift. On days I don't lift I usually do about 30 minutes of cardio (stair steppers or bikes).

Don't wanna put on any extra body fat, or anything :)

Eating 2,000 calories a day with consistant meals and working out at the same time. You won't gain any weight, you'll most likely drop some bodyfat.

And eat the same amount even on days that you aren't training.

Strict diets are pretty hard to follow, at least for me, good luck.

w00h00. I am aiming to get down to about 10% by spring break. I am 13 now.

Not too hard for me. I live a bland life, so eating the same stuff every day will just add to it :)



*** What you taking at Purdue ***

ma151 - precalc review (2nd time! w00h00)
soc100 - sociology (easy)

OK, so I have been on this for about 5 days, and I got back on the scale today, and I haven't gained a pound. I am still right at 165. ;(

What is the average time to see results?

Also, how long should I stick with a diet before changing it up a bit?

(For those too lazy to read above, here is my diet)

meal 1 - 4-6 egg beaters
meal 2 - 8oz dannon yogurt
meal 3 - grilled chicken breast w/ 2c veggies
meal 4 - wheat bagel w/ 2 tbsp peanut butter
meal 5 (after workout) - Creatine + pure protein mix w/ 1c skim milk and 1 bananna about 30 minutes later
meal 6 - 1oz cashews, 2 eggs (if i only have 4 at meal1)
meal 7 - 1c cottage cheese

I wouldn't consider any one of those meals to be anything more than a snack. I'd add about 50g of complex carbs to your first 4 meals, and shoot for about 30g of protien. Also some fruit in the morning might not be a bad idea. For your last 2 meals I'd cut back on the carbs and go for 40g of protein with some veggies. Postworkout 40g of protein and 50g of carbs with 5g of creatine and 5g of glutamine. Good luck:)
