Ok guys, heres the deal. Im a 19 year old college student. Iv been training seriously for around a year (another year of fucking around before that). I really got serious about my diet at the beginning of last summer and noticed what a huge impact it had on my training. I kept it clean over the summer and put on some lean mass (bw didnt change much, but bf% dropped a good bit).
When school started back, I decided to take full advantage of my unlimited access meal plan. I completely stuffed my face with eggs, cheese, milk, steak, roast beef, fish, bread, rice, veggies, chicken, turkey, and the occasional piece of cake or cookie…anything really. Food was food, the more of it the better.
Needless to say, I grew. I gained 35 lbs between August 20th and December 9th (I am currently 5’8" at 175). Some of that was bodyfat, but my lifts all increased a good bit…I added 20 lbs to my bench and 60 to my squat/deadlift.
Heres the deal…I want to continue my progress this semester, however, I want to clean my diet up and lean out some while Im at it. Just as a quick disclaimer…Im not talking about cutting, I dont want to get “Ripped like Bruce Lee” and Im not trying to find out what my bf is when holding a shoe. I was just curious as to what others think of my diet plan.
I plan on continuing to gain weight in the long run, but to simply increase the quality of that weight.
So…heres the plan:
2 whole eggs, 3 whites
1/2 cup Oats (dry) w/splenda, creatine
Mid-day (in class):
Protein shake-1 1/2 scp whey, 2 tsp flax oil
Bigass turkey and roast beef sandwich on wheat bread.
Another bigass turkey sandwich on wheat.
Protein shake=1 1/2 scp whey, creatine, glutamine, sugar
8 oz. boneless/skinless chicken breast
Can of tuna
As far as supps go, Im only taking whey, creatine, glutamine, and a multi…hey, Im broke as it is with all of the groceries, haha.
Sorry for the long ass post, but I was curious as to how this looks considering my goals. I lift 3 times/week and my main goal is to get stronger. Im doing a version of Starr’s 5x5, and also planning on not neglecting my cardio the way I did last semester (I think I did cardio maybe 5 times the whole semester).
I dont really care about being ripped or shredded or anything like that, as Im not big enough to worry about it yet, but I would like it if I didnt have anything hanging over my bathing suit come summertime.
