    Just went to the grocery store for eating better

    I am 6'1", 180 lbs, 22 years old.

    This is the list of items I bought:

    Oven-Toasted Quick Oats (1 big can thing)
    Minute Instant Whole Grain Brown Rice (2 boxes)
    Rice A Roni Long Grain & Wild Rice (2 boxes)
    Pepper
    Salt
    Lowfat Cottage Cheese
    Ramen Noodles Oriental Flavor (8 packs)
    Butter
    Eggs (2 cartons)
    Red Potatoes (5 pound bag)
    Celery
    Cauliflower
    Bush's Best Light Red Kidney Beans (1 can)
    Bush's Best Black Beans (3 cans)
    Bush's Best Pinto Beans (1 can)
    Kraft Light Ranch Dressing
    Cut Green Beans (2 cans)
    Blackeye Peas (1 can)
    Whole Grain Whole Wheat Bread
    Kellogg's All Bran Original Cereal (1 box)
    Pecans (1 bag)
    Almonds (1 bag)
    Smucker's All Natural Peanut Butter (1 can)

    So is this good? Will someone please help me put together a food meal plan for these items? I workout on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I run on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

    I work at a conference office from 8-5 everyday so I go to the gym at 5:15.

    I also have ON Whey Protein already bought. I just forgot to buy a shaker.

    not too bad i spend that on chicken a week i dont see how this stufff is bad or good really...depends on what you do wiht it...got yourself a lot of carbs there, this looks like a good healthy well rounded diet in moderation of course...i dont know what kind of goals you have or what you are expecting us to comment on ?

    Can you estimate your bodyfat level for us? If you don't know, take an educated guess as to how much fat you feel like you would need to lose to have abs showing well (8-10% for most men for reference).

    One issue I can see right now is where's the protein? I see some salmon/tuna/cc/eggs but not a whole lot.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    Replacing fish oil for the flaxseed oil would be a good idea too.

    what are your goals brother ?? Bulking, cutting?? Bulking i'd assume, you definitely need more protein, maybe some beef or chicken.. Take in as many calories as you physically can and you will gain, and sorry i cant really offer any meal ideas based on your list because the way I see it, if you want to grow just eat it dont worry about it looking pretty..

    Wow, first off do you mind if I say that you are gorgeous? Wowsers!

    I have about 10% body fat now but probably need to get to 8% for good abs

    I am trying to become a vegetarian so that's why there is no meat. I will eat fish though. I need something...

    The last few comments made me laugh.....

    brettmartin, consider adding cottage cheese, it's vegetarian and has protein, also whey without egg albumin.

    You seem all hot for danzik! Check her out here.

    He has cottage cheese on his list.

    Good or bad depends on portions and how it all fits into your diet plan. Lots of carbs and processed stuff but if you can stick to a set diet with it then good.
