Re: Diet schedule, need suggestions/comments.

I don't think you're eating enough. If you're working out often you need energy from food. You need to eat carbs before and after you work out.

And if you want to build muscles you HAVE to have protein. You should be eating more protein - lean chicken, fish, eggs. cottage cheese, yoghurt etc (or tofu is you're a veggie).

If you eat too little your body will go into survival mode and lower your metabalism.

Also, are you doing cardio?

Are you male or female?

MystiK,

Any tabulation on the total number of calories in a day?
The biggest question mark is the
Quote:
Dinner - One serving of a meat & vegetable
That can be tiny or quite large.

Re: Diet schedule, need suggestions/comments.

i agree, you need to eat more overall, and you need more protein. some bodybuilders suggest 100g a day! it isn't that hard to eat that much protein, when you consider, for example, that a can of tuna has roughly 30g, and a cup of egg beaters has 24g. i suggest you look up a list of 'high protein' foods and start eating the ones you like. as for your caloric limits.. well, it depends on your gender/current weight but i don't think it's good to go below 1200, especially when building musle- and especially if you are a male. you can burn out, get injured, and/or lower your metabolism if you eat too little, so don't be afraid of food. just eat the right ones! if you still feel uneasy, make an appointment with a nutritionist, he/she will tell you what you need.
