What's Your Typical Daily Diet Like?

When it comes to eating? I was just curious to see what everyone’s diet looks like on a non-training or training day or both. Why do you eat this way, I guess I mean your goals… to bulk, lean out etc…

If this has been done, sorry, I could not find it in a search.

Thanks.

It would behoove you to use the search function. Many members have already posted their diet and paired reasoning for such choices.

There is a thread going on right now in TCell Alpha group called “Breakfast: The Most Important Meal of the Day,” that have the breakfasts of some bigger guys, and also the Nutrient breakdown of an entire day from a couple. Take a look at that if you are still finding Searching to be difficult.

Hey np, you do not want to put your diet down, what you eat etc… I just thought having it all in one thread would be interesting. It’s just a question.

Ok. 300 something views, and only 6, make that 7 responses? (with more than half by me). That Alpha thread had some interesting breakfasts but it’s member only to post.

Does everybody wanna hide their diets or something? After all it’s a supplement & nutrition forum is it not?

Right now… Just because I feel like typing.

  1. 2 scoops protein, 3-4 jumbo eggs with some type of vegetable, onion, and cheese. 1/2 cup of oats on the side, with fruit.

  2. Lifting… 2 FINiBARs, 2 scoops Anaconda, 1 scoop MAG-10

  3. 2 scoops of protein, and some type of protein (ground beef, pork, fish, chicken, it varies) with some rice or potatoes, and then a vegetable on the side with olive oil, fish oil, whatever

  4. Snack… maybe an apple, cottage cheese, yogurt, something like that.

  5. 2 scoops Metabolic Drive, with 2 tbsp of a nut butter

On days I have class in the morning (Mon-Wed), throw a turkey/ham/cheese sandwich in-between 1 & 2

Here’s what I’ll be eating once I head back to college this fall. (right now I’m trying to go from 20% bf to 12ish.)

Mmmmmm milk.

Thanks for the replys. I suppose I should show what I eat…

  1. 3 eggs \ 3 whole grain bread \ orange\ glass of milk

  2. 1 cup oatmeal \ 1 cup of mixed berries \ 1 scoop protein

3/4/5. pre/during/post workout 160g waxy maixe 80g on pp

  1. 2.5 cups of white rice \ 6oz salmon fillet \ mixed veggies

  2. 1 cup of brown rice \ can of tuna \ mixed veggies

  3. 1 cup of cottage cheese \ some raisans

all meals with a tbsp or 2 of olive oil.

Eat more protein scottgomez. What I do is before 3 of my meals (spread out), I drink 2 scoops of whey. 40g x 3 = 120g of extra protein right there. Obviously you should eat whole foods when trying to gain but I’m actually doing this to lean up a bit. Makes me eat a bit less, and I don’t have to eat a fucking pound of beef at one sitting haha.
