Gaining Weight


#1

Ill be honest. I never really stick to my diet, but being 19 and having peak natural testosterone, I know if I do I will gain weight. So I was just looking online and found this diet with all foods that I like. Im 6 foot 180lbs and I was reading that I will probably need around 3600 calories to gain weight with 3300 at maintenance. So this diet contains 3600 and was just wondering if you all thought it was good. BTW I know I should probably already know this but for like pasta and apples, how do I measure them? For a cup of pasta lets say? And also for a cup of apples, would that just be a full apple? Thanks in advance

GO READ.


#3

other than measuring diet look good?


#4

Not really.

What's with the oatmeal? And corn? Why so much?

1% milk?

2 cup of apples for breakfast?

Where did you get this?


#5

Eat lots of meat


#6

Just keep it simple... Check out this website. I think one of the members here actually developed it or something.

Not looking at the macros, only food selection.

Breakfast : switch milk to 1 cup eggwhite, remove 1 apple add 2/3cup oatmeal

Meal 2 : Ok

Meal 3 : Remove corn and milk. You can keep the pasta. I'd take off chicken and eggs and have red meat there.

Meal 4 : Fine I guess

No mention of pre workout or post workout meal ?


#8

Ur funny. I bet you wouldnt even be able to tell if anything is wrong or right with this diet.

And actually I bet he would gain with something like this


#9

Looking at it again I'd probably split meal 2 into 2 meals of about 50g of proteins, 112 in one sitting you wont like it


#10

You guys I got this from Swole.me which someone above mentioned!!


#11

Okay thanks for the tip. I just didnt know if I should do 4 or 5 meals but I guess Ill switch it to 5


#12

Swole.me? LOl


#13

I was going to mention that. Im not to sure when what will be my pre and post workout meals? Or if I should add in meals for pre and post?


#14

that or he's asking a questions answered 1,000 times on this forum, by users and authors.
I could certainly tell him what i think is wrong, im an avid IF'er and would radically change his meal patterns for starters.


#15

Lol I could use as much advice as possible. What would you change?


#16

Than your an idiot. Not everyone needs or want to do IF.


#17

The macros total # look good to me.

When are you working out, i'd have more carbs around that time

Also, with a pwo shake of P+C you should be able to remove some carbs from your meal 4 (which would be meal 5 if you split meal 2 in half). Thats what i'd do


#18

Zraw any chance you will ever do a thread about how you train and your diet?


#19

I wont be making my own thread thats for sure -_- lol


#20

Damn i would be interested in seeing your training and diet.
