    Transformation starts now.

    Welp, I've been working out for a little over than a month in the gym now. Doing the Wannabebig Routine #1.

    Starting this monday I will start keeping track of how much I'm lifting.

    And also add what I'm eating each day.

    Meal 1: 5 whole eggs, 10 oz. juice with creatine
    Meal 2: Protein Shake
    Meal 3: 5 slices of a quesadia (some mexican food), and a bowl of grilled steak soup. Two glasses of unsweetened ice tea.
    Meal 4: 1 slice of a quesadia, 1 order of salmon from applebees, and 1 chicken breast covered in honey from applebees.
    Meal 5: Protein shake, 6 medium sized bites of Peanut Butter.

    So how many calories/protein do you think I consumed today?

    Good luck, duder. WBB #1 is a great routine. Tough call on your cals, 5 whole eggs is a hella lot. I start feeling sick after 2 and a half.

    lol, right now I'm eating 8 whole eggs at once. 5 is usually the minimum I eat.

    But it's all good, 650 cals/42-50 g's of protein.

    Because I'm currently out of tuna, chicken, milk (I need that for oatmeal).

    no vegetables, no fruit...

    I'd say drink A LOT more water than that.

    Quality of calories seems a bit low. Might want to eat a bit more cleanly, but ymmv.

    oh, and have some

    Good call on the water intake, Stash. Especially if you're taking creatine. Try to get at least a gallon a day.

    dude, you're 15 years old. you've got to EAT more.

    take a look around at some journals and you'll see what I mean. to the extent that you can balance your meals so that your protein and caloric intake remains high but also that the quality of calories is high. basically eat everything in sight, and then eat some more....but also try to eat cleanly.

    Also, try using www.fitday.com It's an excellent program for keeping track of how many calories you're taking in.

    I try to eat everything in sight.. it's just that all this stuff has a pile of sodium in it, should I be worrying about that? or just worry about the calories.. I don't need to worry about the protein that much, because I make sure I hit 155 or so a day from my tuna, shakes, chicken, and eggs.


    Ok, thanks for the fitday link. This is nice.

    http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...ner=Den+Fisher

    So I think I'll go make make 2 cups of oatmeal now.. gotta get 1300 more cals in.

    In the morning my eating is very low, same with lunch (because it's at school) but when I get home.. then I start eating a lot.

    less sodium is usually better for you in the long run. I don't mean salt-free, I mean if you can cut down on the sodium intake, it's good. moderation is key.

    have to include more veg and fruit, water, and quality carbs. all protein isn't going to cut it. now I could be wrong and there are a million ways to skin a diet but having an imbalanced diet can't be a good thing.

    What exactly are your goals? I assume you're trying to bulk up, and if you look at those little graphs fitday provides, it says you ate ~2300 cals, and you're burning ~2900. Eat more, try for 3k.

    true, but I didn't eat supper anything yet yesterday.

    And I had around 1k worth of calories from the tuna helper I ate. Then I drank water like a madman.. then had a banana.

    Meal1: 4 egg beaters, glass of milk
    Meal2: Extra Hamburger Helper, 2 bottled waters

    There's what I ate today..

    But I'm about to eat 1 1/2 cups of oatmeal now.. and a protein shake

    so that will be 450 calories to add to that..

    And I know I didn't get all them calories right, because I have no clue how much the amount is I'm eating in school, so from my fitday thing.. add around 200-400 more calories to it..

    And I should be around 3.5 calories for today.

    My meals for today.

    I don't really know what to eat to decrease the amount of fats in there and still maintain high calories though. :/

    For now on you'll see it mostly like that.

    I never noticed I was getting 50% of my calories from fats.

    I'll get some pics up tomorrow also.

    F man, im the same age as you, and im bigger but your still stronger, you got a better diet too, just wait till i can start workin out for real agin lol but seriously, dont worry about food quality that much, ur 15 and it look like your metabolism is pretty high, go nuts, just keep away from sugary stuff but besides that i'd say eat everything in sight, clean is good, if u can get it, but if u cant all the time then dont worry- just get those cals and you'll be straight.

    Today's benching wasn't too great.. I wanted to maybe do 155 or so maybe two time, or just find out how much my max was. But I was dead-beat tired.

    Barbell Rows were lower this week than last week, reason being, last week at that high weight, I wasn't getting it completely up. So I had to drop down some to do them right. :P

    Deadlifts dropped 10 pounds though, only because I did 6 instead of 4 like last week. Next week I'll be doing 255 again.

    Dumbell Press went up 5 pounds, but they were pretty shakey getting them up there.

    Didn't get my crunches in tonight.. I'll move them to this wednesday.

    My meals were pretty balanced today.
