Newb here, wondering if someone can take a look at my plan. I've spent the last couple weeks on break reading strength training books, more T-Nation articles than I care to count, etc. and am ready to start SS. I'm a total novice so hopefully the novice gains will materialize.
I've done some reading about diets too, and this is my first attempt to put one together. I'm 6'7", currently 266 on the kind of chubby side. Despite that I'm in decent cardio health and can run a 5k (in 30 minutes, which isn't so decent after all).
I was shooting for 40%protein/30%carbs/30%fat, with around 4,000 over Kcal intake to be adjusted as I go along. I got kind of close except for fats...just hard to get them without binge-eating almonds. I'm only doing a half gallon of GOMAD.
This is my first diet attempt so I'm sure I've mixed and matched some wrong foods in there or something, so any help is GREATLY appreciated. As I understand it, once I hit the intermediate level in several months or go to a cutting phase, I'll reduce the diet by alternating some items every other day instead of eating daily.
Thanks for any help; I know spreadsheets are kind of a turnoff. I'm glad to be here.
