Hey everyone I am a newb and just looking for some advice. I am 22, about 6’ and weigh 200lbs. Ideally I would like to get pretty lean and lose weight but I know that can be tough to do.
I am starting the 5x5 routine and am looking to follow a pretty strict diet.
Right now my diet plan looks like this:
Wake up: banana
Breakfast: 2 hard boiled egg whites on toast with glass of milk
Snack#1: PWO(MWF)=protein shake, on the other days clif bar
Lunch: Pb &j or turkey sandwich w/ lettuce, tomato and avocado
Snack#2: clif bar on workout days but dont know what to put in on non workout days
Dinner: chk w/ rice, salad, canned green beans
Snack#3:scrabbled eggs w/ turkey
I also should let you know that I am doing 20-30 min of some form of cardio on Tues, Thurs, Sat between the banana and breakfast. I really need help with the snacks, I dont know what to eat there. Let me know your opinions, they are much appreciated.
