    Comments in CAPS... overall looks decent. 2 hrs of basketball is quite a bit, seems like you'd be wasting a lot of calories during that activity. You may want to cut that out or eat more on those days.

    Post up your workout routine in the workout forum... you should be concentrating on heavy compound movements like deadlift, squat, bench, military press, rows, etc.

    thanks...i can't cut out the bball, i'm in a league...i noticed a lot of people here are down on carb intake and say only do it 3 meals max...so my carb intake looks ok?? Also, how many more cals do you think i will need to on the nights i play bball to not lose my gains? Those two nights I play ball are pretty much the only nights i do any cardio...I won't become a fat ass will I?

    PFF no... with your metabolism its pretty much impossible to get fat. All your calories will be going toward muscle gain and basketball. Your body needs a very large amount of calories to build muscle... more than most people realize. Thats why 90% of people stop working out, they get shitty results but don't realize its all in the diet.

    I don't do cardio when bulking and I don't get fat... I'd rather not waste all those calories I'm stuffing in my face.

    well...i was doing this diet without the brown rice for meals 2/3 for about a month...i realized i wasn't getting nearly enough of the necessary calories i need to bulk..so i've only been on it a few weeks...we'll see how it goes.

    what are your thoughts on having fruit sporadically throughout the day? I really like fruit and feel like i can have watermelon, apples, oranges, and bananas at any time...when is it not a good time to be consuming these because i know it might cause insulin spikes? Thanks .
