I'm not really trying to loose any weight I'm 5'9 163 lbs. I am just looking for some guidance on what to eat for best results when I start lifting. Since I posted this a friend of mine turned me onto the Body For Life program and I think I'm going to give it a shot. I have a couple of Bill Phillips books that have tons of info on what to eat so I don't think I'm going to have a problem with the nutrition part. If anyones familiar with Body For Life please let me know what you think about it.

thats a great place to start. both for lifting and for diet. I did the BFL plan when i was 19 or so and had great body recomposition changes. Not only that but i did it in my basement for very little equiptment.

keep us posted on how your dong, and we can help tweak your training, and help answer any more questions you have.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.

Meal 1 - 1/2 cup egg beaters, 1/2 cup oatmeal w/ 1 cup no fat milk, water
Meal 2 - BFL nutrition shake
Meal 3 - tuna w/ mustard on whole grain wheat bread, broccoli, water
Meal 4 - BFL nutrition shake

Default Diet

Your diet sounds fine, and you will not lose weight with that much food at your height and weight.

My diet is probably different than most on here right now because I've cut out a lot of carbs in the past 2 months. My day goes like this:

1/2 hour of cardio 4 days a week first thing when I wake up, plus 1/2 hour of ab work.

(4 tablets of AKG 2 a half hour before breakfast)

Meal 1: 1/2 a protein drink w/whole milk (total 35 gms of protein) or 1 full glass of whole milk
Handful of spinach leaves raw
4 Scrambled eggs, yolks included
(on days I do not eat eggs I have a couple of boneless/skinless chicken thighs fried on my Forman Grill)
6 slices of cucumber
2 glasses of water
(I also take 7 gms of creatine 5gms of glutamine 5 gms of taurine, Once Daily multivit/min, 2 tablets of MSM, 2 Omega 2 - 1000 gm capsules, 750 mg of Trib. Tes. & 1 g of vitamin C)

Meal 2 - 5 slices of cheddar cheese or an Atkins Advantage bar (20 gms of protein)
125 gms of chicken or 1 can of tuna
2-3 glasses of water

Meal 3 - 200gms of roast beef or 300 gms of roasted chicken, or a can of tuna w/ultralight mayo
2 glasses of water
(at this point I also take 2 more Omega 3 capsules, 1g of vit C, 2 tabs of AKG 2, 750 mgs of Trib Test. and 5 g of glutamine)

Meal 4 - a 12-14 oz steak or 3 - 1/4 beef burgers, or a large chicken breast, or a large omlet with cheese and ham
Handful of spinach or 5 or 6 celery sticks
3-5 slices of farmers cheese
1 large glass of whole milk
2 large glasses of water
(I also take 5 gms of creatine, 5 gms of glutamine, 2 more Omega 3's, & 500 mgs of Vit C)

in-between meal 4 & 5 I take my last two AKG 2 tabs of the day, 5 gs of Taurine and 2 glasses of water)


Meal 5 - Protein drink (20-30 gs of protein)
Atkins Advantage Bar (20 gs of protein)
1 large glass of water
(last Trib. Test tablet of the day, 500mg Vit C, Once Daily vit/min tab, 2 MSM tablets)

Everyone is different, and not everybody would bother taking all of the stuff I supplement with, but I didn't jst walk in to a store and buy everything on the shelves. I tried all of these things as well as others, and tried different manufactures products until I found exactly what suited me best. I like all of the products i'm currently taking and have received benifits from each. Some guys on here eat a lot more carbohydrates than I would, and some even eat a lot more protein than I do, but I've found this routine to be ideal for me. I also throw in a day of reduced calories every couple of weeks where I eat less than 2000 calories throughout the day. This seems to trick my system in to burning more fat and you can see the difference in my abs the next day. To each their own however. All I know is that for about 4 months now, on this type of a diet, I've lost a significant amount of fat, I've gained muscle and cuts and I've never been more vascular. That's good enough for me. )

btw- I'm new on here, so "hi" everyone.
