I am beginner to body building, I am 18 years old, 5’9’’, 165. For the past 4 years I have been very inactive and out of shape and just now getting into fitness.
I run 2-3 miles a day and also bike/mountain bike 15-25 miles a week and workout at gym once a day. I hope to improve on running and biking and lifting to get into better shape while improving phsyique (abs, pecs, arms), but also loose fat. I have been on this diet the past 3 months and have seen some results.
Here is daily eating:
4 Eggs w/ cheese
Half wheat bagel w/ low fat cream cheese
Turkey Sanchwhich w/ wheat bread
Peanut Butter Sandwhich w/ wheat bread
bannana or apple
Bowl of grits or oatmeal
Chicken breast or some type of lean meat
carrots or vegetable
small amount of pasta
peas or corn
Before bed I usually have another bowl of grits or oatmeal.
Please any input will help on this diet plan. is this good diet to cut fat while maintaining energy and fitness building some muscle.
Sometimes after doing this dieting for 2 weeks or so, i will then get very tired and so low on energy it really affects me psychologically and physical as well and i tend to get very frustrated even depressed. is this because i am not getting enough nutrients to sustaine body and be active with running and lifting and biking?
