Hey bros - got some simple questions for you.

I was just making sure that a simple onion flavored bagel 230 cals, 15 from fat was good for breakfast. Salad w/ grilled chicken pieces for lunch, or turkey or pennyclub from goodcents. Or maybe another salad for dinner or what do you all prefer.

Thanks Bros,

Biggn

Are you asking if these foods are ok to eat in addition to others, or are you asking if those foods are sound meals? Just those foods listed look like something a college girl would eat to stay trim.

I take it you are trying to stay lean, but you still need to take in 5 or 6 meals and take in enough calories so you're body won't catabolize your muscle. You should try to take in 1.5 - 2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight (Some would pre pound of lean muscle mass, but to be safe just do your bodyweight. It won't do anything but help growth).

And I would recommend experimenting with your carb intake. You need to take in enough to keep energy levels high and assist growth (and some simple carbs post training to restore glycogen levels). Stick mainly to complex carbohydrates (potatoes, rice, oatmel, etc.) and avoid a lot of sugar. Now if your goal is to gain weight without really concerning yourself with a little fat, then obviously you can take in more carbs. But see how you feel eating a certain amount and use the mirror to guage whether you need to add more or back off them.

Nutrition is a complex subject and there is a whole lot of info out there, but nutrition is also the most overlooked area of bodybuilding. For me, it's harder to eat enough food and eat the right foods than it is to get motivated to train. Make sure you're taking in as much protein as you can, and don't be afraid to experiment with different foods and quantities. Eat Eat Eat!

Thanks Bro for the reply - I dont always just eat that of course, I was simply asking like for breakfast that bagel should be fine, right? Yeah bro I have the same prob as you do as far as nutrition and eating right compared to motivation in the gym. Alright bro I've got your info, I appreciate it man.

Thanks,

Biggn

Depends on your goals...... that bagel for example has little protein, and the carbs are all high glycemic........

You want adequate protein, and low glycemic carbs are best......

I usually eat a Balance bar and a Myoplex Pro ready-to-drink shake for breakfast when I'm low on time (which is almost everyday). Breakfast for about $5 and seems pretty healthy with over 50 grams of protein.

By the way, www.DPSNUTRITION.com has the best prices on both of those products that I've found.

Can of tuna fish and 1 or 2 slices of wheat bread should be quick. Adding condiments may add another 30 seconds to total preparation time.

One of the quickest thing I have found for breakfast is 1 minute oatmeal . Just pour into a bowl, add water and nuke it for a minute.............for protein, mix a proteing shake while the oatmeal is heating. It would take you 3 minutes to eat the oatmeal and 1secong to chug the protein shake.

Oatmeal & Protein powder.... Nuke the water, mix 'em together, and voila, low glycemic, low fat, good amount of protein and carbs.....

Eggs sandwich on WHEAT bread..... White bread is bad news, stay away..... HIGH glycemic. Spray the pan w/ some PAM fat free, fry up a couple eggs or egg whites, throw them in between 2 slices of toast...... done......

Yogurt..... Eat it on the go......

Cottage Cheese eat it on the go......

MRP to go......

Protein Plus Cereal.......

That should get you started.........

Thanks Bros - I will let you know how everything goes. Thanks Alot for all the feed back, I appreciate it. I eat egg sandwiches already so... I wasn't doing everything to bad. When I mentioned the goodcents sandwiches for lunch, good or bad?

Thanks Bros,

Biggn

I don't know what goodcents sandwiches are, but it is a good general rule to avoid processed foods, such as deli meat...... Make yourself a Tuna on wheat..... Bar-b-Q up a whole family pack of Chicken breasts and just grab them on the way out the door to work or school or where ever......

Hell of an idea bro - also you know that Bodybuilder guy I was talking about a little while back, well I figured out what he told me was to mix triatricol with ephedrine or eca, preferably ephedrine, I was curious on your thoughts on this.

Thanks Bro -

Biggn

You could do that I suppose, but it might be stimulation overload.... I guess he was saying use the ephedrine instead of clen w/ the Tiraticol.... which you could do, just ratchet your dosage up and back down..... Don't start too high, you need to find your tolerance zone........ Some argue ephedrine is just as effective as clen anyhow.......

So as far as what you believe, would that be a good starting stack to get cut?

OK, here's my two cents if you want to get cut.

Obviously to lose fat, you must run a caloric deficit. A pound of fat is 3500 Kcals. So to shed 2 lbs a week, you'd have to cut 7000 Kcals, so 1000 per day.

OK, now, drink plenty of fluid and up your protein intake to try and keep as much muscle as possible. I'd also hit the creatine to help preserve muscle. Change your workouts to high rep, REALLY short rest, and hit the cardio at least 5 days a week, and twice a day some days if you can (preferably in the am before eating, and for at least 30, if not 60 min). Do this w/o any aids at first. Your body is designed to preserve itself, so it will start ratcheting down your metabolism to try and sustain itself based on the lower intake. Therefore, I would recommend 2 things.

1. Don't stay stuck on a low carb/cal diet. Run 4 or 5 days at low carb/ low fat/ high protein, then up your carbs back up to your maintenance level. This will help to trick your body to think it is ok, and "resets" your metabolism back to what it was in a way....

2. Eat 5 to 8 small meals per day, each containing carbs and protein. The protein will help slow the carbs from entering your blood. The goal is to keep insulin levels as steady as possibly. Too many carbs at once or too much High glycemic carbs will spike your insulin and shut down fat mobilization.....

Now, once you have that down and shed some lbs and feel like you've platued, probably after 6 to 8 weeks, THEN kick in the Tritricol and Ephedrine combo to kick your metabolism back up, as you thyroid output should be reduced by that point. This will benefit you most.
