normal diet day..not great
cardio 5 days a week or so
1. (after cardio or first meal on non cardio days) 3 packets oatmeal noncardio days, 4 packets cardio days
3 scoops whey in water
2. 2 sandwiches ham/swiss/wheat turkey/swiss/wheat
dont sure honestly
3. tuna sandwich
4. 8 oz brisket
5. 2 chicken breasts
Workout (I workout really late)
Pwo shake 41g protein 40g dextrose 40g malti.
6. 4tbspoon PB (need to look into natural for low sugar)
non training days 3 scoops whey
I know my diet needs a lot of work, lately I have been looking at my diet and thinking it resembles a bulking diet almost. Any thoughts? This is the main thing that is lacking.

these numbers a rough some companies are diffrent than others like size of the slice and such but they are in the area
Ham+turkey 1 slice: Kcal-46 P-4 Fat-2
whole wheat(you want whole wheat) Kcal-122 P-4 Carb-21 fat-1

Chest that diet sucks..
3 packets of oatmeal? what are the macros on that..
3 scoops of protein? 2 should be enough..
i'd throw some veggies in meal 4 and 5...
And stick to turkey sandwiches if you must-no cheese.. thats JMO
EDIT: also 2 Tbs of peanut butter should be enough in meal 6..

do you have a dinning hall like buffet style where you can make your own sandwiches?
10-20-2005, 04:02 PM #9Originally Posted by 24labor
and one where theres just sandwiches like this one. The tuna can I have is big it says 15g protein and thats one serving and there is 5 servings in the can so=75g. Plus the bread that probably turns out to be 83g or so.

I eat oatmeal packets also, but their the quacker weight control ones with only 1 gram of sugar (cinnamon flavored). Your crazy eating 3 packets of normal flavored oatmeal. thats a lot of sugar, and your cutting?..LOL.. I feel you about being hungry 24/7, especially when trying to cut but you just got to man up and get it done...
So switch to regular oats or the weight control oats..
You also need some green veggies such as broccoli and green beans in meal 4 and 5. and yeah i would drop the cheese in your sandwiches..
i would stick with 2 scoops of whey for my shakes..
and 2-3 tbs of all natty peanut butter if you must. (also i would switch it up to flax and fish oils occasionally)
these wont make your diet "perfect" but it would increase your progress IMO.

Your best bet would be to have your food pre-packaged in tupperwares.
drop the bread form meal 2 and 3, add EFA's and your diet will look MUCH better.

As for meal 2 and 3 personally yes, i would drop the bread and eat the ham and turkey and even cheese if you really wanted too, along with some almonds or fish oil gels(i couldnt live without my fish oil gels) or tbs. of flax. The tuna i'm sure comes with mayo so just have like 2 tuna snadwiches w/out bread for a good pro/fat meal.

I say the best way is to get a job so you can buy and eat what you want. Or you could rob a bank one hit and your set. Anyway I couldn't live of dining foods anymore everyday some crap that you don't need

what are you trying to achieve? i mean are you trying to bulk or cut? im not sure thats a very good for cutting. i guess it could be for bulking but you might need some more calories in there even for that and rearranging those meals around as well.

I wouldnt recommend pasta when cutting.. just stick to brown rice or sweet potatoes. if you must eat pasta make sure its whole wheat.

I'd throw in a Pro/carb prework out meal. Cottage Cheese, Whey and a bagel or something.
10-21-2005, 12:13 PM #30
if your trying to cut id go a bit longer on the cardio, say 35-45 mins at 65-75% mhr. when i cut i drop carbs as low as possible but still take in carbs for my two pwo's. its sort of a modified atkins. i eat high protein and moderate fat with very little carbs all day and then for those 2 pwos i take in my carbs, even if its not till late at night. because regardless of what time you work out you need those to pro/carb pwo's. ive found by using this im able to shed fat and retain most of my muscle.heres how my meals would go:
1.(after cardio) pro/fat
you can rearrange it so those pwos fit into your schedule. remember dont mix fats and carbs.

oh and I need to replace this low carb pb shit with natty pb..Im going to go somewhere else and see if they have it.

Whoa dude you gotta flavor those bad boys up. I usually add some brown sugar and some milk, that makes things alot better.

Well if you add your own you can know how much you put it. A Little sugar ain't gonna kill you, I mean you are eating with oats and Protein, so there's no worries really. I usually just make a bit less oats. But yeah don't use the flavored packets, if anything use some sugar, or honey.

throw the raw oats in a blender with your protein drink. im bulking right now so i mix raw oats with plain fat free yogurt and and sugar free cheesecake pudding mix to it. damn its good. banana cream pudding is pretty good too.
10-21-2005, 01:37 PM #40
cinnamon and splenda added to ur oatmeal is good too!
