Diet Help.


Recommended Posts


Iv'e just started training to become a special.

Iv'e also joined my local gym. Over the past few months i have slowly decreased the amount of junk food i eat, it's now hardly any.

I've been looking online for diet plans, but every site seems to say the opposite to the last .

I'm 11 stone and 6 foot. I do look quite skinny.

If this is the daily guidelines for a adult, then roughly how much should i be taking in if i want to build muscle.

MenCalories2,500 kcalProtein55 gCarbohydrate300gSugars120 gFat95 gSaturates30 gFibre24 gSalt6 g

Any help, advice or good websites you could recommend would be appreciated.

Depends what you want to acheive, are you aiming to build strength or to become an 'absolute tank in a t-shirt 50cent looks anorexic' unit?

Aside from diet it depends on how you train, what exercises, weight, reps etc

http://www.myprotein.com/uk/pages/home -> this has got some information (if you look under the Goals tab)

Ask at your local gym for advice, most of the PTs/ Fitness instructors should have some knowledge of diet & nutrition. (If they are REPS qualified think this is part of the course to become qualified PT)

Get yourself onto a bodybuilding forum and have a look around there for tips & advice.

Protein and steamed green veg are going to become your life :huh:
