Can someone please help me set up a muscle building diet..

#1 Postby carreannjoe » Mon Apr 18, 2011 4:41 pm

Hi all!

I am new to this forum and also to eating a vegan diet. I'd like to incorporate as much raw food options as possible but aiming for a vegan diet at least.

I am needing some help putting together a daily diet specific to building muscle right now. I will be competing in my first figure show in March of 2012. Up until then I would like to figure out how to eat properly to fuel my muscle gains and maintain low body fat %. Up until my show, I am hoping to educate myself enough to know how to properly enter into the cut phase, in regards to nutrition, during the last 10-12 weeks prior to my show. I have been trying to read as many posts that I can find on this site.

Can anyone tell me a formula for macros that should be ideal for my goals right now? I am 5'2, 119 lbs. , 36 years old. I have been training on your basic bodybuilding diet for the past two years. (lots of meat, and protein shakes)

I dont' want to wing it, I am hoping to find out the right formula to follow..

I'm attaching some pictures of me now. I'd like to lean out some in the belly and continue to build muscle.

Thanks in advance for any input!!!

The nutrition forum might get you a few responses.
