View Full Version : my diet - mostly whole foods

05-26-2007, 10:02 AM
Im aiming at around 2800 calories at the moment 180gms protein, 310 carbs and 80 fat.

My diet is 6 meals a day, REAL meals. I only add some soy protien to a smoothy in the morning. Just wondering what peoples thoughts on getting my quotas from mostly whole foods are.

The protein comes from meats - mince, beef, chicken, fish.
Carbs from - fruits, veggies, rice, oats.
And fat tags along with the meat and nuts.

I think people only use supplements such as protein powders for convenience and to meet their macro targets. Its quick and easy to make a shake and very convenient PWO.

If you can meet your macro goals with whole foods, then thats great too.

What are your goals,bulking or cutting?

What are your current stats (age,height,weight,bf%)?

whole foods are fine...it really is mostly a convenience thing (supplements)

the only thing I'm not too sure about is post work out...you want protein that will be aborbed right away and some with a delayed absorption rate (which is why Nitrean is awesome)

aside from PWO I would see no real NEED for protein supplements

EDIT: also what are you eating before bed? some kind of casein protein will help prevent muscle loss because of it's slower absorption rate (ex. cottage cheese)
