Alright, I’m a beginner and i’ve read all of the beginner articles. I’m about 5’5 and 183lbs, medium frame. I want to kill all this fat and build a nice looking mucle… not a huge lump of destruction, but a nice build a definition. Any tips are greatly appreciated.
Anyway, I looked at the calorie calculator and i need probably around 1500 calories a day to loose weight. So, I devised this daily meal plan I need to know what you experts think and what I should change. I plan on doing full body workouts atleast 3 times a week if not 4 and cardio every single day.
*Keep in mind all I drink is water or juice, no matter what. Mostly water and probably about 2 liters a day.
Breakfast: Bowl of total w/1% milk, Glass of orange juice (Minute maid, no additives) Bananna sliced up in the total
Snack: Turkey sandwich on whole wheat w/ 2 slices of turkey
Lunch: Grilled chicken breast on whole wheat w/ lettuce and tomato. Along with an apple or something.
Snack: Turkey sandwich on whole wheat w/ 2 slices of turkey.
Dinner: A regular meal, whatever I can find really (any suggestions would be nice)
I also noticed some people do 6 meals a day, I have some rice cakes (50 cal) in case I need anything after dinner.
On days I work out (every other day) I was thinking of substuting my dinner for the protien shake (600 cal) and then working out. Should I drink another shake after Im done working out even though it puts me well over the calories I want to intake (to loose more weight) How does this sound, do I need to change anything?
btw, if it helps the shake im taking is cyto-gainer. the guy at gnc recommended it to me and they have it at golds as well. it has like 56g of protien, 2g creatine, glutamine all that… lmk if you need more info.
