10-27-08, 11:56 pm
Trying gain mass and strength.Im not overly concerned with adding bodyfat,so this is not a "bodybuilding" diet. Just wanted some opinions to make sure im not overdoing the calories.
Right now I am 260(5'9) training with a high volume, modified 5-day westside routine.
Meal 1- Large bowl of Shredded Wheat or Frosted Flakes and 50 Gram shake w/2% milk
Meal 2- Grilled or Breaded Chicken(10-12 ounces),potatoes or fries ( whatever they have in the cafeteria)
Meal 3- Shake(same as above)
Meal 4- 8 ounces of ground turkey with brown rice and onions
Meal 5- Same as above with 8 ounces of milk and two brownies
Meal 6- Shake
Throughout the day- 1 to 1 and a half gallons of water. Two diet cokes, and 40 ounces of gatorade(24 during workout)
Supplements- Zinc and Magnesium before bed,Multivitamin in the morning, NO product prior to workout. All shakes are with whey protein.

you have amounts for all you protein but not carbs. That is what will make or break you. Try to post that up.

Lots of Protien, lots of Carbs, decent amount of fats....

I dont count calories or add anything up. You know if you are eating sloppy or not, no need to be adding stuff up.

I eat a lot....when I slack on my eating, my recovery suffers.

its the same as a bulkin bodybuilder who weighs as much as you do.

the one difference is you must eat an oreo with every meal and 4 pre training lol!!!!

nol but for real, oreos pre training are great.
