Default How much more should I eat

someone in anothe rpsot helped me out a little but I would like more advice. Im gettign back into lifting 4 times a week while jumping rope and doing some running outside instead of a treadmill.

from what I was told you should take 1 to 2 grams of protein per pound. I am 5'7 285. my walk around weight is usually 270-275 but i plan on getting dowqn to 250 -260 range . should i make my protein intake around 300 grams per day. and would i really have to watch my carb intake, like bread and things of that nature. i ahvent been 240 since i was 14 so 250 area would be slmost slim to me.

my diet so far is muscle milk protein shake with skim milk in the morning 4 to 6 eggs with cheese about an hour after that. for lunch i eat a really big sandwich rap made with turket and mustard, dinner varies but i try to get the most protein i can with eating a lot of whatever meat i have, and a protein shake before i go to bed.


should i put one more protein shake and meal into this even though im trying to drop about 20 to 30 pounds?

thanks for the help

The whole 1-2 grams of protein per pound of body weight is ok. I find that it depends on if you are cutting or bulking. But first it should be per pound of LEAN body mass, so you should find what % of fat you are and take that away from your weight and use that in determining your protein.
As for cutting and bulking, you want to use a little more protein for cutting and a little less for bulking. When bulking, most of your calories should come from carbs.

From what you have posted you need to start with a better diet all together.
First off, Where are your veggies? and 4-6 eggs? Is that whole eggs, because that is a lot of fat.

So, to get started, get a more sound diet menu down and find out what your Lean body weight is.

i usually alternate between egg beaters and real eggs. i would say more egg beaters than real eggs. my vegies come with the sandwiches and burritos i eat. i just started this new job so its been a minute since i got paid so i been mad broke. just trying to eat what i can affor for now, but that will all change friday . and i would say my body fat is around 25 percent. i dont think thats to bad for me being 100 pounds over the weight of my height, and i dd work out on and off. i just now have everyday access to a gym. i know how hard i can go so i just wanted to make sure i get the right nutrition

Just to add to Dave's comment. A big question you have to answer is "How easily do you gain weight?". If you gain it easily (which is the feeling I'm getting) then maybe you should watch the carbs and fat. Diet is very personalized. What works for me might balloon you up to 350lbs and might not even put a pound of mass on someone else.

As for the training question. What are your goals? (sorry if they're posted somewhere else and I didn't catch it) If your purely interested in cutting weight then your training would be different than if you were , say, trying to really increase your strength.

well my goals are kind of weird i guess. i want to just drop between 25 to 40 pounds. at the most. i hav enever been a small dude. and my goals are more strength oriented than cutting up. i can get weight easily but i can maintain it wherever i want to keep it.


i am recovering from reactive arthritis so my legs suffered the most. my arms are just about back im just trying to get my strangth back. i want to be able to bench 225 40 to 50 times. i konw i can get it somewhere between 20 to 30 maybe exactly 25. i can do some power lifting but my deadlift and squat stances are only limited to opening wide. sorry for saying a whole bunch of nothing but basically im just trying to keep getting stronger, loose a coupel pounds but make my legs a little bit bigger. they shrank some due to me having to be inactive for so long. sorry for the whole bunch of stuff but thats what im looking to do

wow man you are beastly. Good job. I think once you get your diet down you will be able to lose some body fat and get even stronger. As for being 25% body fat, That is high. I would try to cut down to 15% and then go nuts. BUT like I said before, Get your diet in check and go from there.

http://www.bodybuilding.net/nutritio...bulk-1159.html

This link is on how to bulk. When calculating grams of nutrition in your daily caloric intake, use your Lean body mass, which from the info you have given is about 210-215 lbs. I like to think of it this way, you want to feed your muscles not your fat so why use your whole weight.

http://www.bodybuilding.net/nutritio...nning-928.html

This link is a basic layout. It's good for starting out. Remember nothing is concrete and everybody is different so after getting your numbers down for your calories you might have to change if you don't see Positive progress in about two weeks to a month.

So read up and make a diet plan and then just shop for those foods so the temptation to deviate won't be there as much.

thanks man i really appreciate it. on friday i will def get the food i should eat. i just been trying to make due with what i had for now. and 200 to 215 seems like a def acheivable goal. 3 to 400 was a little bit to much to try and do when im not just sitting at home eating all day.

thanks for the links and advice
