Hey, I am very new to the board and have a question for you all.
I am 21, 5'9, and 130lb. I am currently working out 5 days a week and going for mass.
This is my current diet:
Pre/Post workout (2)
2 scoops whey -12 carbs -46 protein
2 cups skim milk -26 carbs -16 protein
1 cup applesauce -54 carbs
2 1/2 tbsp honey -40 carbs
2 cont. lowfat yogurt -90 carbs -14 protein
Totals= 222g carbs, 76g protein per meal
Other two meals, not Pre or Post (2)
1/2 box macoronni -54 carbs
1/4 cup skim milk -3.25 carbs -2 protein
1 slice bread -11 carbs
1 can tuna -33 protein
1 scoop whey -6 carbs -23 protein
1 cup skim milk -12 carbs -8 protein
Totals= 86.25g carbs, 66g of protein per meal
Betime meal (1)
1 1/2 cups egg beaters -6 carbs -36 protein
1 cup cottage cheese -12 carbs -24 protein
2 slice bread -22 carbs
1tbsp jelly -8 carbs
Totals= 45g carbs, 60g protein per meal
I've been following this diet for almost a week based on a program written by Francesco A. Castano.
When a friend of mine took a look at it, he swears that it is horrible, that its not nearly enough calories, he says I need more high calorie foods like pizza and ect., and that when he started lifting he was taking in around 9000 calories a day.. and that this diet doesn't provide nearly enough calories to grow..
What are all of your opinions on this matter?
