    Zimbo needs help with diet

    I have read the FAQ about diet questions, and if i could here in Zimbabwe i would put down all the break downs of the foods, but they dont have them on the lables.

    I really need help with my diet and planning.

    I went to the gym for my first session yesterday, and man i got a lot of work ahead of me, but am very excited about it.
    i was surprised to learn that my BF17.8% height 181cm and weighed 91kg age 32. Wanting to get my BF down to 15% while gaining lean mass and strength.

    I will be training everyday at 8-9am

    We will be doing weights mon,wed,thurs
    Cardio tues,thurs,sat
    Rest Sunday.

    I read that cardio is best done on empty stomach, so should i have breakfast after on tue,thurs,sat?

    This is what i had yesterday:

    6.30-1/2 cup oats, 1whole egg 3 egg whites
    7.30- noxplode, 5gr glutamine
    8-9- gym
    9.30- 2 scoops(46.4gr protein)whey shake/banana(got a cramp in gym)
    13.00-200gr lean steak,1/2 cup white rice(cant find brown rice)brocoli
    16.00- 2 slices wholewheat bread, 1/2 can tuna, tablespoon low fat cottage cheese.
    19-00-1 chix breast, i med jacket potato, 1 cup cabbage.
    20.30- 4 provita+ low fat cottage cheese.
    21.30-2 scoops(46.4gr protein)whey shake+5gr glutamine+5gr HGH stimulator.

    How does this look i no its not 100% but is it a good start?
    Also i think i must try eat breakfast on weights day at 6am coz the omlete was not fully digested during gym.

    Thank you again for taking the time.

    Thanks very much,
    Could you explain why up the omlette to 7 egg white?
    Jacket potato is a white potato that you bake in the oven, i dont eat the skin.
    Provita's are a south african whole wheat crisp bread.
    I also use about 4 table spoons of olive oil a day to cook my food in, is that a good source of fat?
    I will have to eat lean beef here before bed as its hard for me to get Casein shakes in Zimbabwe, will this not affect the glutamine & HGH stimulator they say take on empty
    stomach just befora bed?

    Thank you again for helping here, my other question is am i taking it the right times?

    Take sweet potatoes. It should be easy to find them in afrika. If you faind flax oil, it would be better.
    Take your pre-bed meal: hgh stimulators are for most part junk. They say that you should take on empty stomach because carbs reduce hgh release. But if you take pro and fat before bed, it will help your gh spike and will reduce night catabolism, which occurs also with gh in your body.

    what's the point of an hgh stimulator if you dont have the amino acids to build with?? you need a slow digesting protien before bed...

    lose the jacket potato for a sweet potato or yams..
    olive oil is a great source of fat..

    make changes and post up revised diet with macros
