alright my first post!!
First off some insight to possibly help with suggestions. I'm 22 yrs old, male, college student (two more years), 5-10 175lbs. I've been lifting throughout college up till about 4 months ago. I've started up again this week. I think the reason i stopped is i wasn't seeing the gains, which i partially attribute to a very very poor diet. I love to eat and thus far it's my downfall, im amazed i don't weight about 250. Seriously, i'm searching through other ppls recommendations and it looks to me like i'm reading a foreign language.
You know how they have the "for dummys" books? well i think i need one for healthy eating. I am trying to find a post where some1 gives a "good" weekly diet. Not only what types of foods to eat, but also how to prepare them (perhaps i'm looking more at purchasing a book than finding on forum?, going to look into the 300 recipe book posted on a sticky in this forum ) Because quite honestly i am lost in the healthy food departmant.
But in all honesty simply starting out by going to the grocery store can be a bit intimidating (yaaa that sure sounds funny reading that lol). WHen you are use to just going there and buying mac n cheese, waffles and pizza etc. it's a bit easier than trying to pick out healthy food.
Just some basics so atleast when i go to grocery store tomorrow i am not there longer than my workout
egg whites: simply prepare them on a frying pan, don't eat the yolk i'm assuming....
Tuna, we talking in can, pouch does it matter? ( i don't think i've ever had tuna lol)
For protein shakes, i have some nitro-tech from a few months ago. Any1 have the good/bad/ugly on this stuff?
Chicken, okay i can get rid of the skin, but only breasts? (i love chicken but hate breast......)
5 oz. 93% lean beef, okay this is simple enough to find. just fry this and drain and eat plain??
so as of now this looks like my grocery list for tomorrow, quite a bit different than last weeks lol.
whole grain bread
