Goals are... see my avatar? that's me back before my wife got pregnant. That's my goal.

As far as the calories go, I haven't entered any of this into fitday yet.

I'll try switching up one of the sammiches over to a brown rice or potato with chicken.

Any word on the beans?

Thanks for the help :)

Thanks stump, unfortunately Ive let myself go and well I have no excuse. Time to cut down and get my ass back to what I use to be.

Also, beans = 40 grams of carbs in a cup? ouch - not that I have many carbs in my diet anyway but still.

what fats are you consuming?

10-18-2006, 08:36 AM
So do you need to pack on some mass to get there or drop some weight? Saying you want to look like your avatar without knowing what you look like now doesn't help.

In that pic I was about 210-215 11-12% bodyfat..

I'm easily 250 now with about 21-23% bodyfat..

I need to drop not some but lots.

Fats I actually haven't included - but I might throw in peanuts mid-day or another spoon of nat pb. Suggestions?

10-18-2006, 09:05 AM
healthy fats-olive oil,nuts,natty pb,egg yolks,fish oil,avocados etc...

Alright guys, I've modified my diet and tracked it on fitday. Here are the results.. Adjustments? Actually, today shows I had bread - That will be changed to oats for the mornings. For now this is what I have.. I think my fats are too low and maybe I should throw in some fish oil. Are my calories too low? (Cutting diet by the way) I think my carbs are a bit low but might be effective for now. Maybe a banana in the morning shake? (I fear the sugar. :bang: )

Thanks again guys, tear it up.

Cal too low, fats too low. Fats need to be around 100g. I would start at 2500 cals and see if you lose weight there. Protein bars are junk. Add 8-12g of fish oil. Where is your pre and post workout nutrition? When do you train and what do you eat before and after? That would be a way to add in the extra 700 cals or so.
