around 5-6 depeneding when i finsih i eat steack or chirck with veggies steamed

9 pmnot a heavy meal somethign ligth tuna or penut butter agian

trougth out the day i eat a least 3-4 fruits as snacks

ok how does that sound

and would it be better to take protien before or after workout or both?

Did you eat every 2 to 3 hours? No

Did you get 1 to 1.5 grams of quality protein per pound of body weight, spread over all six meals? No

Did you get some fruits and/or vegetables at every meal, or greens+ as a substitute? No

Did you drink a pre-workout shake with protein and carbs? Maybe, you mentioned protein at least.

Did you slam a bizillion calories in a protein and carb shake after your workout? No.

Every question should be a yes. Start changing one or two things at a time. I’d start with eating every 3 hours, not a snack, a meal. Then ensure the shakes are right, then the rest.

Good luck,
Roland

Definitely an improvement from the first diet you posted. Gradually work your diet towards what the above poster recommended.

Take protein before AND after workout, if you can.

I would say find a gym that has apex nutrition templates and have them monitor your diet. Its a great starting point and teaches you protein, carbs, and fats.daily intake etc, plus holds you accountable.

dont worry about any supps except some protein bars, and protein shakes.

make a bunch of yams! eat them with a shake through out the day.
have some mixed nuts and some fruit between meals.
grill a bunch of hamburgers patties already pre made.
Large amounts of pasta with olive oil and chicken.
Pita sandwiches with tuna , turkey etc, even some avocado on their.

AS a begginer do not worry about p c f in same meal!

no no problem i just dont work out my legs as much as my upper body(i hate working out my legs the most always in pain when i walk)[/quote]

The more you work your legs, the less pain you will feel in the days after your workouts. You SHOULD feel tired after working your legs, the same way you should feel tired in your chest after a chest workout. You wont make gains be cakewalking and pussying your way through things.

If you dont care how big your legs get, then thats fine I guess, just know that you will be referred to by many as a lightbulb. Most of the other lifters I know consider guys who cop out with “you dont see your legs, why train them?” as pussys who just dont want to put in all of the work.

When I first starting working out, I didnt like leg days either, but Iv grown more fond of them recently.

Leg day will most likely be one of your biggest calorie burners throughout the week, due to the size of the muscles.

Heavy squatting and dl’ing also causes your body to release more testosterone into your system. Im sure you know what this means.

Also remember, that your legs are slightly better than half of your entire body. Want to gain weight? Make them bigger.

Chicken legs look silly, especially when there is a decently built upper body sitting on top of them.

Is this just me, or is the top photo here the exact same one as the OP posted 4 months ago??

OP: Giving you the benefit of the doubt, maybe you uploaded the wrong pictures?

A change in your routine every 4 weeks would help as well
