I am brand new to these forums but have lurked for quite some time.
I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and really strap down and properly form a workout/nutrition plan.
I don’t think I’ll have any problems with the work-out plan as I have some previous experience (hit the weights when I was 18 but never really got any gains), but the nutrition aspect of it will be a bit of a challenge for me.
I have decided to follow in USCTrojan’s foot steps ( http://www.T-Nation.com/readPhysClin.do?id=1859240 ) however I am a bit concerned at the diet he was following.
I’ve taken the liberty to throw everything USC was instructed to eat into the FitDay software application…
On an off-day USC appears to eat 3,033 calories, 80g fat, 232g of carbs, and 366g of protein.
On an on-day USC eats 3,752 calories, 89g fat, 340g carbs, 474g of protein.
My biggest concern is the PROTEIN. 474g of PROTEIN.
Am I going to KILL myself following in USC footsteps?
I was impressed with his progress.
Let me know what you guys think.
ps. I am 21 now, 5"11 and 145lbs (and definitely am an ectomorph…)
