    eaiting just these foods, good thing ?

    All i mostly eat is , chicken, tuna, salmon, eggs, peanut butter (not oo much) , peanuts, lean beef, and a lot of cottage cheese low fat. You think i can pretty much live off all of these. I also take mutli vit and also mix in fruit here and there on carb meals , like apple and peanut butter. Mainly trying to keep it clean and eating a lot of this to try and put weight on.

    right now 5'6 158

    you have hardly, if any, complex carbs....most of it is protien....also you should never mix that apple (carb) with the PB( fat).....never mix the 2.... you need more foods such as whole wheat breads, pasta, potatos, rice, yams...etc

    From what you said, the only carbs you are taking in are fruits. That's no good man. You need some complex, slow burning carbs in there. Pick up some sweet potatoes, brown rice (good with black beans), oatmeal, and maybe even some whole grain pasta.

    You could definitely live off of what you are eating and do it better than most, but that's not what your goals are. Check out the diet forum and take a good look at protein/carb meals and pro/fat meals. You'll see that apples and peanut butter really isn't the best combo. Also, almonds are better than peanuts, but I suppose it's your call there. Get some lean steaks in there dude!

    If you are trying to add lean muscle tissue, that approach won't do much in that area, no.

    Sorry well i do have 3 pro/carb meals a day. I am going to start mixing protein and brown rice with my meals. and also in the morning i have say 4-5 eggs with a bowl of oatmeal. I think i posted that too quick . Here is an example of the meal plan i am trying to follow. This is just an example not my meal as it would be way to much for me.

    Meal 3: Pro/Carb

    Chicken Breast, 1 and a half cup Brown Rice

    55g protein / 64g carbs / 3g Fat

    2 Cans of Tuna, 1 Tbsp Full Fat Mayonnaise, Veggies

    60g protein / 2g carbs / 13g Fat



    Workout

    Is there a write up on protein/carb /fat meals or you mean look at other people's ? i did a search didnt find anything. I'd rather see it in a sticky then someone's made up diet plan to make sure i am not following someone else's mistake.

    Yeah, that looks pretty good. It's pretty damn clean as well. I personally eat way more than that at the moment, but following the same basic principles. Also, I don't eat pro/fat meals until late in the evening when I am doing nothing but sitting around the house.

    For instance, in the diet you posted above, there is a pro/fat meal right before your workout. That doesn't make any sense, you need carbs before your workout.

    You've got the right idea with diets like the one you posted. There's science to back all of this up. Just continue to research the diet forum and read the stickys.

    You realize that by taking dextrose with your protein shake, you are increasing insulin production, which is in turn getting all the amino acids and protein from your shake into the muscles where it is needed the most. It wouldn't make sense to spike your insulin and then throw a whole bunch of fat in the mix now would it? Your body needs fat, but it doesn't need high levels of insulin to get the fat where it needs to go.

    Absolutely, carbs for your PPWO are essential.

    There is still some work to be done with the diet, though. I've got a salmon on the grill right now, so I must be going. It's getting there bro.
