    You need to read the stickys pal... No one will make you a diet. When you read the stickys just post up the diet along with macros and we'll help you.
    We need to know your macros and TDEE also.
    Pics will help too. Ill drop back in when u post up

    Whats your reasoning behind the test??

    Here read this to get you started:

    http://forums.steroid.com/showthread...ead&highlight=

    It is something damien threw up great for beginners.
    Then get a meal plan sorted.

    Example:
    4:30am (pre workout) - premier protein shake - 30/6/2 - 160 (P/C/F)
    1 jumbo egg - 7/1/5 - 90
    1/2 cup oats - 5/27/2.5 - 160
    1/2 cup blueberries - 0/20/0 - 80

    7:30am (PWO) - 1 scoop myofusion - 25/5/5 - 150
    1/2 cup oats - 5/27/2.5 - 160

    10:00am - 4oz (cooked) chicken breast (marinaded) - 24/0/5 - 150
    1 cup broccoli

    1:00pm - 1 large can tuna in olive oil (drained) - 40/0/12
    2 cups mixed greens (baby arugula, spinach, romaine)

    4:00pm - 1 Jenni-O Turkey Burger - 18/0/9 - 160 (I know protein should be higher here - would like to add whole egg or 2 but worried about too much fat)
    1 cup green beans
    1 tsp olive oil - 0/0/6

    7:00pm - 1 Salmon burger - 19/2/8 - 170 (again, protein should be higher, same issue as 4pm)
    1 cup green beans, asparagus, or mixed greens
    1 tsp olive oil - 0/0/6

    10:00pm - 1 scoop casein - 24/2/1 - 120
    2 tbsp natty PB - 6/3/17 - 180#

    This is a sample diet given to me from Gbrice when I started out.

    Macros are the protein/Carbs/Fat/Calorie Content in each item and the the total for each meal.

    When you get ur diet up we can make progress with your diet.
    If u need to find macros for food use livestrong.com.

    Fanks for your time, basically im using the test because i wanna increase in strength, i am happy with how my training is goin around my chest arms shoulders and back as there is very little fat around these areas and i am gettin good shape there, its just from my poor diet that i have this fatty belly, I understand my diet drastically needs changing and that i need to get more cardio into my training i just dont wanna lose my gains in these other areas , so i really dnt know the best way to go about it
    cheers

    There has been alot of debate on here regarding how many meals to eat per day and so on. Ill keep it easy.

    You need to eat 5-6 meals a day. Your macros need to be split up throughout these six meals.

    A good protein source must be consumed in each meal (Chicken, eggs, lean beef, turkey, whey etc).

    Carbs are consumed at breakfast and pre and post workout (Oats, Brown rice, sweet potatoe etc)

    Fats are included in meals without Carbs ( olive oil, flax oil, nuts etc)

    Whats your weight in Kg, height, bf% etc.

    Pm me if u need more help but u need to look through some of the posts and post a diet. ill link u to a diet i posted up if u like.

    This is the diet I started with. Obviously I had to make changes to it.
    Do Not copy this. Your needs will be different to mine.
    Lay out your diet like so (takes time) and we will get you sorted.

    Pics will help also.

    Im taking it your goal is to cut bodyfat yes??
    Macros will really help also.

    Food Choices are poor. the link i gave you in post #4 gives a list of all protein sources, fat sources and carb souces. Choose from this list.
    I need to know the amount of each food item in each meal. Ill go into it more tomorrow.
    Start by looking at that list and getting the protein/carbs/fat/calorie content and totals for a daily basis.

    When u post this include goals, stats, TDEE all that.

    Would that still be ideal if you were trying to out on muscle but also at the same time lose fatt, to get more definition?
