What is a daily meal layout for everyone look like? Just wondering what people here eat for breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, late night snack? Amounts?

Wanting to give myself a general idea of what a good combination is.

Thanks

Check peoples journals and look for their links in their sigs.

This is a good link of actual foods:

We should have a thread where people throw up diets they ran that they really liked.

I already have that list, I was just curios of what other people ate for breakfast and other meals/snack through out the day.

Yeah I hear you bro. It looks like that is something we need. Perhaps this thread will turn into it.

Good stuff bro.

Keep tracking, it's the only way to ever know for sure, and maintenance cals is the most important thing you could ever determine. It is your baseline diet. Every bulk or cut is based off it.

Yeah, I had a summer job that didn't leave me much time to diet and lift(working 15 hour days 6 days a week) So come school time I am ready to get back in the gym and start the diet right again.

I think I will start a journal for a little more motivation.
