    It is more efficient to spread them out across the day.

    Our ability to assimilate isn't infinite. i.e. limitations exist w/ regard to how much we can effectively utilize at any one time.

    This isn't the only consideration however.

    We also have to look at our body's physiological response to food as well. (among other things).

    For one, steady trickles of insulin release keep people leaner than spikes.

    So, a meal plan should facilitate such.

    Spreading the intake out facilitates such.

According to Katch-McArdle formula my kcal to maintain LBM should be 3306 since i am planning on doing cardio 6 days a week along with 5 days of weight training. I am using the 40% carbs 40% pro and 20% fat macro. I am getting most o fmy carbs from sweet potato and two meal of oats early in the morning right after AM Cardio. I'll be doing a slow joggin for 50 to 60 mins 6 days a week empty stomach.
    Cardio and weight-training aside, what does the rest of your daily activity looks like?


    Your current diet:

    7, 150g chicken breast, 146g brown rice . Cals = 412, Carbs = 34, Pro = 49, Fat = 6

    8, PWO shake 2 scoope, 2 scoope Waxy Maize Starch. Cals = 500, Carbs = 66g, Pro = 48g

    Total Calories = 3596

    Total Carbs = 410g

    Pro = 361g

    Fat = 38g
    I won't address the diet as yet.

    What i will address are the discrepancies.

    You stated your goal kcal... but surpass it.

    You stated your macro ratio.. but have not used it at all.

    Your fat here is 9%.. not 20%

    etc. etc.

    Providing that each of the potatoes/breasts are about the same size, it's a workable solution.

    I do about the same.

    I take out my potatoes/sweet potatoes for the day... boil 'em up... and mash 'em into one huge bowl.. and then scoop out about equal sized servings and put 'em into separate containers to eat at different times during the day.

    Works out to about the same thing.

    Noted.

    Now:

    Quote Originally Posted by Narkissos

    Your fat here is 9%.. not 20%

    etc. etc.
    ^^You say you're using a 40/40/20 ratio.. but you are not.

    What you're doing:

    Quote Originally Posted by texasmk4

    Total Carbs = 410g

    Pro = 361g

    Fat = 38g
    What you should be doing (by your own account):

    3300kcals: 330gr pro; 330gr carbs; <>70gr fat

    Split over 8 meals (as per your current lay-out): <>40gr pro; <>40gr carbs; <>8gr fat

    Voila!

    I think you should get closer to that model before you make any further changes.

    Before starting though, I think you should go low-carb (i.e. high fibrous carb) 28 days (6 days fibrous carbs; 1 day tubers... for 4 consecutive 7 day cycles)... starting this eating protocol on the 29th day.

    Good luck.

    e.g.

    Days 1-6: 40 gr protein; 2 cups steamed vegetable; +supplemental fat (<>9gr total fat per meal)... 8 meals per day (as per your current schedule)

    Day 7: refeed.

    On day 29.. start the eating protocol as outlined above (i.e. what you should be doing right now... but aren't)... Then when fat loss stagnates, carb-cycle.

    I hate when threads turn into senseless arguments.

    It's too easy to lose your way.

    If I've missed anyone's diet... please let me know.

    Post a direct link to the individual post.

    ok.. calipers tend to be off by a couple percentage points, so we'll go with the higher reading.

    So let's call it [email protected]%

    Your diet:

    Time to get it closer to this thread's mission statement.

    I want you to do a short carb-cycling/insulin -sensitivity boosting eating phase: 21 days


    Days 1-6; 8-13; 15-20: 2016kcals

    Broken down to: pro: 225gr; 175gr (fibrous carbs only); 45gr fat

    Meals 1-7: <>35 gr protein; 25gr carbs (i.e. 2 cups steamed vegetables re: fibrous carbs); <>7gr fat



    Days 7; 14; 21:
    refeed...2900kcals

    Broken down to: 250 gr protein; 325gr carbs; 60gr fat

    Meals 1-7: 35gr pro; 45gr carb; <>8gr fat


    After this point... Get in line with this thread's mission statement: moderate carb, moderate protein; low fat (all quality sources)

    Ok sounds good....definetly gives me some direction. As far as fibrous carbs am I basically looking at using only green veggies here as carb sources? Also should I continue to use the same PWO shake or change that also? Should I maintain the same workout and cardio plan?

    Veggies solely.

    I see you listed a.m. cardio and evening weight-training on a 5 days split

    That should suffice to be honest.

    No simple carbs.

    Your goal here to make yourself more sensitive to the application of carbs in the phases which follow this one.

    I noticed beans seem to be a pretty high in fiber source of carbs would they be good during the day and post work out to substitute for greens in a meal or two? Also how do you feel about natural PB in this 3 week phase?

    Meal 1 - cals - 359, fat 11, carb 28, pro 34

    Meal 2 - cals - 315, fat 7, carb 17, pro 38

    Meal 3 - cals - 343, fat 7, carb 24, pro 46

    Meal 4 - cals - 355, fat 6, carb 18, pro 54

    Meal 5 - cals - 315, fat 7, carb 17, pro 38

    Meal 6 - cals - 235, fat 5, carb 12, pro 34

    Meal 7 - cals- 180, fat 5, carb 12, pro 24 (might add a shake here)

    Carbs seem a lil low and hard to get right....I know you mentioned 2 cups of brocolli but my macros on fitday don't quite line up but I don't see the slight variance making a huge difference.

    Hey folks.

    Ugh. I was guided here by someone saying that I could use a diet.
    I've been working out for almost two years now eating relatively healthy but havn't watched my diet for specifics. I'd like to put on some serious weight fast and figure this would be the place to come.

    For a complete rookie, what do you suggest? I'm dedicated and am willing to follow even the strictest of diets.

    Carbs seem a lil low and hard to get right....I know you mentioned 2 cups of brocolli but my macros on fitday don't quite line up but I don't see the slight variance making a huge difference.

    I'm a lil lost.

    You posted a different diet on my forum a day ago.. correct?

    Which one would you like me to advise on at this time?

    What you have should be good enough

    If you're feeling adventurous however, hit up those cassavas

    I dont believe he is helping people make diets from scratch. He is just critiquing them. Make one up using the stickies and other threads found in this forum. Then post in here.

    O that one I posted was my bulking plan that I made that I plan to work my way up to after I finish this cut. I was starving and thinking so much about food that I had to make a bulking diet up with my stomach to get over it haha. All these veggies are making me insane haha.

    Im am currently cutting. I am 5'10 208 lbs and prolly about 12% body fat. Basically I want to see if I can get to the 8% range. Losing some weight in the process is the bonus. I am currently following this diet I am about to list. I think I am to low on the carbs though. I have no clue though and I am trying to absorb as much as I can. Since I have always bulked my whole life this is all new to me. I only drink water and nothing else.

    Meal 1:
    2 whole eggs - 140 calories, 12g protein, 9g fat
    6 egg whites - 120 calories, 24g protein, 0g fat
    1/2 cup oats - 150 calories, 5g protein, 3g fat, 27g carbs

    Meal 2:
    6oz chicken - 165 calories, 34.5 g protein, 3.75 fat
    2 cups Broccoli - 60 calories, 4g protein 0 fat 8g carbs

    Meal 3:
    2 cans of Tuna - 200 calories, 44g protein, 4g fat
    Mayo 2 tbsp - 90 calories, 8g fat, 4g carbs

    Meal 4:
    6oz chicken - 165 calories, 34.5 g protein, 3.75 fat
    2 cups Broccoli - 60 calories, 4g protein 0 fat 8g carbs

    Meal 5:
    2 cans of Tuna - 200 calories, 44g protein, 4g fat
    Mayo 2 tbsp - 90 calories, 8g fat, 4g carbs

    Meal 6:
    6oz chicken - 165 calories, 34.5 g protein, 3.75 fat
    2 cups Broccoli - 60 calories, 4g protein 0 fat 8g carbs

    totals:
    1665 calories, 244.8 g protein, 47.25 fat, 59g carbs

    I am short calories I believe.

    Your approximate daily caloric maintenance level is: 3061 calories (kcal)
    Your daily caloric goal in order to lose weight should be between: 2061 to 2561 calories (kcal)

    Thats what I came up with. What can add or lose you think to get to my goal?

    Good luck.

    e.g.

    Days 1-6: 40 gr protein; 2 cups steamed vegetable; +supplemental fat (<>9gr total fat per meal)... 8 meals per day (as per your current schedule)

    Day 7: refeed.

    On day 29.. start the eating protocol as outlined above (i.e. what you should be doing right now... but aren't)... Then when fat loss stagnates, carb-cycle.

    Nark,

    2 cups steam vergetable that are high fibrous carb, with every meal and then on day 7 go with sweet potatoes, just making sure.

    Your calories are understated.

    You have not listed the soluble fiber count... just 'usable' carbs.

    Soluble fiber contributes about 3kcals/gr

    For simplicity, I prefer to go with the overall label claim... lumping soluble fiber in under total carb count.

    So in revision:

    2 cups broccoli = 22.4 gr 'carbs'... (rounded to 23gr 'fibrous carbs')

    It's a dieter's trick.

    That rectified though, your kcals are still too low.

    Thats what I came up with. What can add or lose you think to get to my goal?

    Your kcals should be around 2500.

    While lowering kcals can come into play while cycling... you aren't.

    This is your base diet.

    And you dieting style.

    Both need to be rectified.

    This isn't a pro/fat thread by the way.


    My questions to you would be:

    Why did you choose this approach?

    Have you started?

    What does you 'bulking diet' look like?

    How long were you on it?

    Have you ever tried different styles of dieting?

    Have you carb cycled while 'bulking'?

    etc.

    Yes.

    Make note of the supplemental fats necessary.

    On the low-carb days (1-6)... go with 9gr fat (As noted above).

    I like a mix of fish oil and lecithin.

    so 4gr of ea. per meal.

    On day 7, drop supplemental fats down to about 5gr/meal... or 2gr ea. of lecithin and fish oil.

    I numbered your questions to make it easier to answer.

    1. Just doing lots of reading on various sources. I wanted to map out a base diet at least. Then tweak it as needed. It seemed like it was similar to other diets I have read about. Except mine it seems maybe missing sweet potatoes maybe or yams I guess. Also, I dont like green vegetables and brocolli is the only one I can stomach.


    2. Yes I have started. Except when at work. I eat like this at home or my days off. At work though, I eat at the cafeteria. I eat well there, but I consume a lot of carbs. No fried foods or anything like that. Im talking like breads, pastas, high GI foods and the like. I work as a Valet at a large theme park and figure it is ok to do this since I burn it right off running a lot. I am losing weight though. I weighed myself this morning and I am down to 206 lbs from about 210. I started like 7 days ago.


    3. Never tried something like this before. Meaning never cared about counting calories. I always just ate and got bigger. I was always just lucky like that. I generally ate lots of everything and stayed aways from fried foods and just drank water.

    4. Up until I stopped exercising approximately 10 years ago.

    5. No

    6. No

    Here is me in the member pictures section. I need to do updated pics since I reached my 12 week mark last Saturday. I look even tighter than the "after" pics now.
