View Full Version : If critiquing diets is your thing...

Please critique mine!


I know I haven't been the cleanest eater. But I'm getting used to it all. I like a beer every now and again, but I don't drink 3 or 4 maybe just 1 or 2 twice a week. Is that ok if I keep the overall calories down that day?

At the same time I wonder if I should be eating JUST over my maintenance intake for a very slow bulk while I build muscle. I've been lifting for close to a month, and I feel pretty good. But I hate the fat I've had for the past 5 years or so. I want to cut! But I want to get more LBM! What to do!

what is your current height,age,weight, bf%?

your fats are probably too low.

I meant to put that info in.

26 Years Old
201 lbs
5'11.5" (I'll take all I can get!)
BF ??? I need to get this checked out.

My Mom is a nurse and knows how to use the calipers. I have a handful of gut and lovehandles.

I am NOT strong. I have some arm and leg strength but I wouldn't imagine that I have enough muscle to break 22% BF.

Thanks, I'll update with BF% after I get it measured.

OK, I got the calipers and I've calculated my body fat %. I'm pretty sure I've been following some great guidelines on here, from Built and bill and a great many many others. But, I also know that sometimes when you think you are doing ok, someone else can see your fault.

Here's my updated stats:

26 Years Old (Still...)
195 lbs
22.9% BF

I was using the calipers wrong, my Mom set me straight. My actual bodyfat is 18.1%. I thought 22.9 was a little high...
