Newbe's diet *Advice welcome*
Ok, I've been training well, thought my diet was pretty good, but from what I'm reading, my diet really isn't that great.
Maintain muscle mass or increase
Maintain bf% 11.2%now ***Ultimate goal 8%***
My diet has consisted of (undocumented and unmeasured)
Whey protien shakes 3 per day ~50g's of protien with water
low carbs...but they were bad carbs...stupid me...learning tho...
low sugar intake.
Soo...here's what I'm doing now...
Post workout....protien shake w/peanut butter and 1 cup of oatmeal w/ 1tbsp of flax seed oil and a REGULAR Coke...to stimulate insulin release.
7AM Breakfast: Protien shake w/ 1 cup of oatmeal, w/ 1tbsp of flax/1 tbsp of Peanut butter
10:00 Grilled chicken wrap from Applebees w/ teraki sauce
12:30 McDonalds Grilled Cesar Salad w/ 1/3 packet of dressing and Diet coke
2:30 or 3 Protien shake (No carbs after this point of the day)
5pm workout w/ post workout shake w/sugar..again to stimulate insuline release.
9pm snack of cottage cheese....
What do you guys think so far...I am new, don't beat me up...just looking for ideas and help with diet...I'm doing well, just at a sticking point.
If you have read my other posts you would have seen that in 2 years I have gone from 150lbs and 18% bodyfat to 175lbs and 11% *without cardio* All maintained by diet and lifting properly. I am 5'10" tall 41c 15.5bi's 33w 51" shoulders, 24" quads
Cycle history...given upon request. (On my 3rd week of my 3rd cycle)
Shoot me some advice ... Thanks!

Thanks. As dumb as this may sound, reading all the stickies can be overwhelming. It would be cool if one would critique it a little at a time....we all started somewhere.

This is IN the cutting sticky up top.... Its a general example for a 200 lb guy trying to cut. Change it up and cater it you, but stay with the general idea of pro/fat, pro/carb, and pro/dex(PWO)
Lean Protein, 1/2 cup oatmeal
Protein shake/Lean Protein (2 tbsp flax
Veggies, Lean Protein
Veggies, Lean Protein, 1/2 cup rice or oatmeal.
Shake with Flax
That turns into approximately 300 grams protein, 130 grams Carbs, and 50 grams of fat.
*Reminder: This is a PRIMER. It’s not mean to be comprehensive."
You only need to be reading the "Cutting" sticky. Re-read it again...the info is there.

Thanks a buch. I keep pounding the chicken breasts and tuna down, my biggest problem is know the right porportion of good carbs/fat. I am reading info on here about glycemic indexes and insulin , which, I am clearly not ready for, however, I understand glucose in the am and post workout is a good idea to stimulate insulin secretion. Exactley what are you using for glucose...I drank a regular coke (dumb I know) but that's what first popped into my head as I left the house for work. Are you guys drinking a fruit juice? Simple sugar....what's the glucose that u guys are using and what's the doseage?

I'd suggest you take the time to read/understand the cutting sticky atop the page.
It's not overwhelming in the least bit, unless you ran through it at light speed.
Really, it's your body, so you yourself a favor and spend the time to do your body right by reading/understanding.
You're worth it right?
BTW, do a search for DEXTROSE, that is also mentioned in the sticky and it's what you'll want to use as part of your post-workout offerings.
