You should find out you maintanance cals and create a deficit from there. I weigh 227 and I am eating 2800, around 65 grams of fat and 150-200 carbs. Just keep your carbs breakfast, post, and post post workout. I even have a few before workout. No fats in PWO or PPWO. As swole cat said to you in another post its all about getting to know your body and revamp as you go along. Good luck.

wow thanks guys, that really helped, ok, i will try that and hopefully i get good results one question though, my before workout meal....i have veggies and they are carbs so i thought not to mix them with fat? or are they not really counted as carbs? also, i heard cassien protein is slower acting, should i be taking this at night or is whey fine? (for my meal 7)

ok, i can do that, its just going to take a while for me to get to know my body from what i have read.....thanks for all the help guys, oh yeah, i had only like 2 more questions before i goto the grocery store tomorrow....
1. Can i just keep this diet everday, or do i have to change it up for nonworkout days, i will probably only not do cardio on tuesday, thursday, and sunday.
2. Oh yeah, i should just get in the habit of buying grocerys every week also right?

bump, anybody got an answer to the last 2 questions i posted above?
01-03-2006, 11:58 PM #11
Well, since you look like an ecto, you can definately afford eating the same on non training days, as you do on training days. Just Don't use the simple sugars you would use in your PWO shake. Instead, make that a protein fat meal, or a protein carb meal using complex carbs instead of sugars.

And yes, you will need to buy groceries REGULARLY and have food prepared at all times. I go to the grocery store every 4-7 days to stock up. I grill up my meats, steam my veggies, and baked sweet potatoes about 3 times per week and jsut throw them in the fridge so the are ready for a quick re-heat in the microwave.
01-04-2006, 06:28 AM #13
wow thanks for alot of great info spound, i really appreciate all the help, yes that pic was taken a little over 2 months ago when i was definitely small and ripped, i thought eating less meals and less food was better for losing weight so i would run about 5-6 miles a night, lift in the mornings, and eat 1 maybe 2 meals a day, which waas basically starving my body....lol sorry had to explain why i look so damn small and skinny.....right now im prolly around 15% bf and alot bigger lol.....

If that is you in the avatar and you are 18, forget cutting!
I'd go on a clean bulk and add as much lean muscle as you can, as that in turn will speed the metabolism naturally. (muscle = metabolism)
Cutting down to a buck forty or so ain't really gonna leave you with much.
Just my take on it if I were training you, but alas, I'm not.

well from horrible eatin in the past 3-4 months, i mean freaking horrible, like fastfood up to 3 times a day ive put on a good 25-30 lbs from that picture, about 10 is built up of muscle and the rest is fat that has stuck on my stomach, i know its my own fault ect but my father wanted to start cutting also so i decided to read up and figure out what me and him could do, i mean i just look alot bigger because i have eaten alot and i want to shed some bf then start bulking first, to make sure i start out with a good less-fat muscle built up body, and yes i am looking forward to competing here in about a year or so and id love to be freaky but that will have to wait until im at age to take hgh or somethin lol..
01-04-2006, 07:49 PM #17
i will post some new pics here after i can get some taken
01-04-2006, 09:02 PM #18Originally Posted by Always Liftin'
This is my opinion of course.
01-05-2006, 07:02 AM #19
thanks, all opinions help, thats what i was planning on doing actually, then hopefully it will work if not ive got some suggestions as to what to change if it does!

I agree. 18yrs old, I'm aure very active and your metabolism is probably very high. I would concentrate on heavy lifting and just clean eating. no fast foods or lots of sugars. Lots of protein and moderate amounts of fat and carbs. But I would not worry about ripping up at your age and weight. Get up in the 200 weight range. my 2 cents...good luck man
01-05-2006, 08:13 PM #21
hmm some good advice here, im comsidering bulking, the thing is , it would be very hard as i have like 3 mine before classes to eat....and wow, that would be hard....any advice on that
01-05-2006, 08:16 PM #22
if i were to do a buking diet....can anybody try to figure out the totals and i can figure out the rest of what to eat....ect...and ill post it here shortly....maybe i can try to get to 200 as long as i dont look to skinny...actually i will probably lose fat durin the bulking process as i will be eating alot better right? who knows...maybe u guys could give me some advice on bulking like my previous post^^^

Just blend up some protein shake in the blender b4 school and throw them in a shaker bottle and pound those bitches before classes lol. Just throw some water, ice, protein, oatmeal, and flax into the blender and blend it up an dthrow it into a bottle. Its like having a solid whole meal, but jsut in liquid form, and you can tkae it down FAST!
01-06-2006, 05:29 AM #25
alright, i may do that, sounds gross but who cares, at least i will get some good quality muscle, thanks for the adviec throught this holw post spound, also thanks sc and others.....really helped answer a few questions i had
01-06-2006, 08:22 AM #26
If you have a block schedule then you should have 2 10-15min breaks...if your straight through then yes 2-3min is about what u got. You might want to make u tuna sandwiches the night before and just eat those...really stack them with tuna and egg and get that protein. along with a big breakfast, lunch and dinner...then before bed drink a protein drink. That along with your weight training should have you putting on some nice size.
