How did everyone create their diet? did you guys get it done by a trainer of some sort?
I just cant figure out what i should be eating everyday to gain the muscle, I'm skinny and used the TDEE calculator and found my calories i burn a day to 2850.
Well I'm trying to lose weight and fat so it's not that hard, I just cut off all the bullshit and eat clean calories and protein on a deficit.
If I wanted to bulk I would do the same but 2x the amount.
>god knows how much money
First of all, you can go shopping and find out how much money rather than letting your mom do it for you.
Secondly: yes, you have to spend money on food. Did you really think you could make gains without sacrificing some time and money?
>found my calories i burn a day to 2850
you most likely dont burn 2850 cal when you are skinny unless you are living a supper active lifestyle
or you are 7'3" or something
Not him but if you're not into bodybuilding I don't see a point in obsessing about numbers. Just do your homework about nutrition and you'll know what and how much to eat. Use a scale to see if you're doing it right.
Alright guys, going shops tomorrow. Will buy a fuck load and I'm talking about 200$+ if needed.
What should i am for? at the moment, I'll buy about 30$ worth of chicken breasts, oats, rice crackers, nuts / almonds, tuna / sardines, fat free milk and if not that almond milk, octopus, salmon, etc...
I'm not sure on just how many calories i need since this guy opened his mouth; >>35815758
I know i should be aiming for at least 80 grams per day, at least 4 scoops of whey 3 hours apart.
Chicken chicken and more chicken. Don;t buy "low fat" shit, stick to normal ingredients, as low fat generally means more sugar/carbs.
Buy shit for salads as well, salads are amazing.
My fortnightly/weekly shop is 2kg of chicken breast, 1kg of rice, pasta, some pasta sauce cans (don't use the whole thing, just enough to cover your serving of chicken.), a shitload of apples, 2 bunches of bananas and lettuce, tomato, onions, garlic, potatoes and eggs.
Stick to stuff that sounds healthy, because that generally will mean you will stay healthy.
Don't go to bed hungry, but don't go to bed full either. Don't eat until you're bursting, eat until you're full, wait 20 minuts (wrap it and put it in the fridge) and continue if still hungry.
Eat healthy, but eat a lot, if you wanna unskeleton.
Also gonna start cutting diet today
There's advice for skeletors but what about fatfux?
duh f a m , but I have a job that completely fucks my body up on the daily, coupled with gym
Im not necesarilly fat, but im gonna cut
Any bros who've had successful cuts got some tips you found were really handy?
Im gonna lose fat by the end of this, but lets share the knowledge brehs
If you're like me you'll have a hard time getting enough fat in your diet. Get a bigass bag of mixed nuts from the bulk section. A cup of those a day should get you to where you need to be fat wise. I just split them up into sandwich bags. Some days I have avocado instead.

Like? Buy I'll buy lettuce and shit as well.

What sort of rice? just plain rice or brown rice? Also I'll buy things like chicken thighs besides the breasts too and potatoes.
Well i do, I'm getting strength gains but i want size as well. 180g of protein sounds like a waste though for my weight.
Yes dieting is hard and you will be hungry. Calculate the deficit you need and stick to it. Weights are essential.
This takes a long time and a lot of consistency
eating food that isn't calorie dense will fill you up with no calories. A big ass plate of spinach might have the same calories as like two chicken nuggets but it will fill you the fuck up and you won't be hungry.
Also, get those crystal light packet drinks and drink those when hungry. They make life much better.
If you need to have a cheat meal do it, but don't over do it. Don't pig out and eat 2000+ calories more than normal, and for fucks sake don't do it all the time.
Breh, dem 80g is good, Scoop all you want but dont go autismo over this shit. Eat clean. Products You mentioned sound damn good, soon youll learn to read labels and buy with instinct. Dont overcomplicate eating.
Just for clarity I've been lifting for 2+ years, but I'll inhale these tips like a cumsponge
Thanks breh, much love senpai
tyvm bro, aye I used to think i was being a smartkunt by trying to fit cheat meals into me TDEE
But now I go off weekly/monthly calories, it helps a fuck tonne, just need more time really, it's not as instant to track
Yeah, you gotta balance long term goals with being a little happier right now. I didn't get fit to be unhappy ya dig. You don't want to be the guy eating broccoli on your birthday.
If it takes an extra month to get to that goal weight then it takes an extra month. Just make sure that your habits are sustainable and you aren't setting yourself up for failure.
Lettuce, tomato, cheeze, red onion, anything you can think of that goes in a salad really. Salads are easy as fuck to put together and have decent calories and can fill you.
White rice is fine. Brown rice is slightly healthier, but also more of a pain in the ass to cook.
Taters are fucking great. Get the ones that come unwashed, they're generally better for you. also try to buy boneless thighs, thigh bones are a cunt to get out.
Alright cheers, noted it all and will write down when i go to the shops. I will start with 2.5k a day to try and gain the size and see what happens. If it does nothing I'll mix it up and go higher.
I'll just say you don't need up to 1.5 g/lb like Lyle recommends. Just for gaining mass and strength, protein intakes as low as 0.6 g/lb have been shown to do the job in long-term studies. Also check the articles on his website:
yeah i opened my mouth
i guarantee you 2850 calories will make you fat
but since you are skinny its fine.
Just lift - observe your body and see what happens.
If you start to get too fat obviously lower it a bit.
In the end no calculator can give you a number - every body is different.
Huh, i'm 6'1 and 100-105kg and I hit 2.9k calories expended per day. I think I'm eating well below that, two decent meals a day at most, with 1/2-2/3 a chicken breast and some pasta/rice to go with it.
>3-5 exercises a week
lmao go lower just to be sure that you dont get fat .. then up if you think you dont gain anything (which i doubt)
almost 3k calories is a lot of fucking food for someone your size/height
get some fukkin oats and not that basic flat tiny oat bullshit. Put some whole fukkin milk in there until it's just barely fukkin floating in there. shove that bitch in the microwave for 2 - 2 1/2 minutes and eat those cheap as fuk god damn fukkin 500 calories.
I'm looking at my self and I'm skinny as fuck, fuck your BMI scale garbage. You have to be high on meth to think we aren't skeletons at this weight ad height.
I'm hitting for at least 80kg.
