    Well I've always been around here lurking and stealing some daily eating plans from peoples thread so I decided to actually record what I ate today. Just tell me what you think.

    I'm 19yrs, 5'10-5'11 176lbs looking to gain some lean muscle while losing some body fat.
    (On spring break from school so I'm at home, this is how I would usually eat)

    1/2 cup of oatmeal with about 1/2 cup organic 1% milk (I know, skim)
    1 Poland Spring bottle of water

    1 handful almonds
    Small small cup of orange juice
    1 orange
    Supps

    1 handful almonds
    1 hard boiled egg
    Supps
    2 fish oil pills (EPA216, DHA144) each

    Sippin' on another bottle of water

    let me be the first to say two things:

    1) read the FAQ

    2) Eat some vegetables.

    I've read the faq and thought everything was good (besides the vegetables which I forgot to mention). Was just looking for approval. Thanks

    If you don't wake up until 11:30, I'd assume you aren't going to bed until 3ish. I hope you are eating more than just once between 5:00 and bedtime.

    Your lifting looks odd and not very good. I'll give you a plus for doing squats, but regular bench, dumbell bench, and dumbell incline? Then 20 minutes of decline abs?

    Is your salad iceberg, mixed greens, spinach? If it is spinach, I don't think you are doing that bad on veggies besides excluding on your first meal.

    Seems pretty good. I agree with anaconda that you need some more veggies. Your workout isn't great but I've seen worse. All in all not bad.

    My workout for the day is off the Bill Star 5x5.. It was only for today, not the whole week.

    Yea I'll eat at like 8:30 again and have a snack about an hour before bed. Idk, I thought it was decent.

    Salad is all mixed with little to no iceberg. Thanks for the responses.

    The diet is pretty good with the small exceptions that have been posted. The most important thing is being able to enjoy it enough so it's easy to manage. Pretty much any diet can get picked apart in one way or another.

    What do you do where you can get up at 11:30? Student? Second Shift? I don't think I have ever woke up at 11:30 unless I was drinking heavily years ago.

    well this is just because I have been on spring break for the past week. Staying up late at night or until the morning requires me to sleep till noonish :D.

    i'll never understand why people list water on their diet as if it were to give them some kind of magical dietary powers... '_'

    Looks good to me, very similar to my diet though I probably eat a few more carbs and a little less protein. And man, I go through bottled water at home too. At school I just refill my Poland spring jug everyday, saves a ton of money. And yeah, your workouts a little bit strange, and the Bill Starr 5x5 really has to be followed EVERY workout day to the T to be really effective. And it is really effective if done right.

    Not to bad. Suprised not one person has noticed one thing however. No carbs PWO. Whether simple or complex, you have none. That is the biggest mistake.

    I gave him a pass on the basis of his future eating (multiple peanut butter sandwiches) but yeah, it's pretty carbless

    I would increase protein intake in the morning, and add veggies throughout the day.

    i just put the water so there would be no questions of 'extra' calories due to sugary drinks. Thanks for all the responses.

    cut out juice from your diet. It is high in the glycemic index thus releases too much glucose into your cells and becomes stored fat

    definitely seems like you could use more protein when you first wake up, and c'mon now, you stay up late and your last meal is at 5:00? you have to be snacking on something at night.
