    Thumbs up Mental, Emotional, & Physical Strength = Superb Results!






    Hello everyone ,

    My name is Diana Supinska. I currently live in Calgary, Alberta, but was born in Poland. I have been viewing this website for numerous months now; although I haven't been posting, I am going to start my very own journal here. I came here from DF (Discuss Fitness), where I've seen Atherjen post (great motivator & lovely personality, by the way ) knowledgeable information, as well as her journal. All of you are great inspiration who currently help or have helped a lot of people here, which I truly like and would want to be a part of.

    Current Info:
    Age: 17 --> 18 in October 30th
    Height: 5'3
    Weight: Will post when I get on scale
    BF %: around 25%-28% I'm guessing
    Body Type: Mesomorph with a little endo & ecto characteristics.
    Training: 2 years

    Goals:
    To decrease my bf to around 18% within this year, but ultimately to around 12%. I want to gain lots of lean muscle mass as well as strength along the road.

    My cutting diet:

    M1 (Pre-workout) - 1c. Oats, 1/2 scoop Whey, 2 Kiwis, 1 tbsp. Flax Meal
    M2 (PWO) - 1 scoop Whey, 1 medium Banana
    M3 - 4 oz. Chicken Breast, 1 ww Pita, 3 oz. Radishes, 2c. Spring Mix Greens
    M4 - 1/2c. FF Plain Yogurt, 1 large Red Pepper, 1 tbsp. Flax Meal, 1 large Apple
    M5 - 4 oz. Chicken Breast, 6 oz. Cauliflower, 4 oz. Mushrooms, 3 oz. Onions, 1 Sprouted Grain Tortilla, 2 tbsp. Organic Salsa, 5 Fish Oil capsules
    M6 - 1 oz. FF Curd Cottage Cheese, 1 medium Tomato, 5 Fish Oil Capsules

    TOTAL: 1790 calories (45% Carbs/39% Protein/ 16% Fat) This is for weight training day. My calories and macros are changed daily to keep my body guessing. Also, my maintenance level is around 2,200 calories because of my physically demanding work and exercise. I want to keep my calories around 1,600-1,850 for an effective fat loss.

    Supplements: 1,500mg of Glucosaminie Sulfate
    650mg of Calcium
    1 Multivitamin
    10 Fish Oil Capsules (3mg/EPA)
    Would like to add Glutamine soon

    Training Split:
    Mon - Chest/Triceps/Shoulders
    Tues - Cardio
    Wed - Legs
    Thurs - Cardio
    Fri - Back/Biceps
    Sat - Rest
    Sun - Rest

    I am looking forward to some critique about my current training and diet routine to see if it needs some tweaking, in order for me to reach my goals. I hope you all have yourselves a great day!

    magnesium will cure that usually chocolate cravings and alike are due to a deficieny in that mineral.

    I agree its great to see your dedication at your age(not that I am much older.. .lol). Trust me it will pay off later in life I am sure!

    things look super.. I see you like Red River cereal too!

    I'll be sure to check out a magnesium supplement because I'm not going to sacrafice my diet for chocolate...lol! (For cheat days maybe )

    Yes, I do like the Red River cereal, very tasty!

    It's amazing how people around us have no clue about nutrition or exercise whatsoever, and make such poor food choices -- of course they no it's bad for them, but they still do what they want, but in the end complain about their health. I know I won't be one of those people because my health is my priority, no one will replace it with a new one so it's up to me to take care of it.

    Jen, would you change anything about my diet to acheive lower bf %?

    Your absolutly right!! Many young people neglect to take the time to educate themself on proper health! Its sad really!!

    as for diet- maybe instead on the whole banana post workout, go for 1/2 of the banana and 1/4c oats or just all oatmeal(1/2c.)
    what kind of yogurt?
    is that 1.75c. brown rice in meal 2? if so I would cut it back to only 1c. or so.
    maybe just 1 kiwi in meal 1 and a bit more protein.

    how is the progress going on the current diet?

    You see, I'm aiming towards a specfic number of calories each day and if I cut back on some of these portions, my calories will be down quite a few. Any suggestions?

    Jersey Farms No Fat Natural Yogurt info (I buy this @ Costco):

    3/4 c. serving
    84 cal.
    11g Protein
    .2g Fat
    9g Carbs
    31% Calcium

    Ingredients: Skim Jersey Milk, Skim Milk Powder, Active Bacterial Cultures.

    Awesome point Diana. All around me all I see is kids in college partying like crazy, letting their bodies go to sh*t. I mean they completely show absolutely no care at all for their health, it's very sad. How long have you been interested in health and working out, etc.?

    BTW, do you have any physique pictures uploaded?

    that yogurt is perfect!

    rather than cutting back on the calories, simply make a swap. meaning 1 less kiwi for 1/2scp more protein in meal 1.

    instead of 1.75c. rice in meal 2. make it 1 cup and add some oatmeal to post workout meal. (great oppurtunity to eat a good portion of carbs as your body will readily use them to replinsh glycogen stores, etc).

    Mike: I've been interested in being active my whole life, but I've been more focused for 5 years now. I would post a pic, though there is a small problem... you see I'm a bit shy. Maybe in the weeks to come?

    Jen: I understand what you're saying. I'll take you advice and see if it makes a difference. Thank you.

    Hi Diana, just dropping by to say good luck ( but then again with that kinda motivation I don't think you really need luck! ) I am honestly impressed to hear that someone so young has such mature thinking! Way to go girl!

    I have friends in their 30s who still think that sitting in the sauna will solve all their weight and health problems, and others who call me from work to ask if 2 slices of pizza have less calories than some rice, fish and veggies and which should they please choose!!

    Dalila, to me thinking this way comes naturally, but to others, well you know...they have troubles in this area. I just don't know why though, it's not hard to choose healthy alternatives or to exercise. I guess they don't care as much. Thanks for the kind words.

    I really have to say -

    This diet looks great! I am very impressed!

    Just a suggestion though (and tell me to rack off if I am out of line) - Consider taking the tbs of flax from M3 and putting it in M6. Pre-workout it is better to stick to mostly carbs/protein as fats make the digestion of the meal too slow and you will not have all the available energy for your workout.

    Adding the fats to M6 instead will prolong the absorption of this meal, giving your muscles a more constant protein stream during the evening (although the fish oil caps will do this as well the fibre and 'real food' benifits of the flax will help even more).
