EliteDad's Training & Diet Journal

#1 Postby EliteDad » Sat May 16, 2009 9:23 pm

Here we go as promised, so everyone can help me out and help me make it better!!!

We will start with what I eat:

6:30a.m.: 4 egg whites with diced red and green peppers and onions, 1/4 cup of oatmeal with 1 tsp honey, 1 bannana
9:00a.m.: celery stalks, with 1tsp Natural PB, tofurkey deli slices and tofu hot pepper cheese in a multigrain wrap, 1 orange
12:00p.m.: medium salad with natural sunflower seeds, green peppers with dressing consisting of (honey, Braggs appler cider vinegar, Braggs amino acids, and olive oil) homemade bean soup with several different kinds of organic beans and organic tomatoes
3:00p.m.: preworkout, 1 apple
4:30p.m.: post workout shake, made with Dymatize elite whey till it is gone
7:00p.m.: usually brown rice and a vegetable stirfry


I also sometimes for breakfast use my elite whey, mix with it 1 cup oatmeal, 1 cup of natural applesauce, and 1/2 cup apple juice blended together!!! I just have a question is the Dymatize elite whey going to hurt me??? till I get some of the rice whey or Hemp whey??

Mondays: BI'S & TRI'S:
Skullcrushers 5 sets
Close Grip Bench: 5 sets
Tricep Rope Pushdowns: 5 sets
E-Z Bar Preacher curls: 5 sets
At. Hammer DB Curls: 5 sets
2 arm High Cable Curls: 5 sets

Tuesdays: SHOULDERS:
Smith Machine Overhead Press: 5 sets
Side DB Lat Raises: 5 sets
DB Front Raises: 5 sets
Smith Shrugs: 5 sets

Wednesdays: LEGS:

Diet and workout looks pretty good. I've never used whey so I can't really answer your question on that. I really like VEGA if your looking for something to replace it with. Also Sun Warrior rice protein is pretty good too. If your trying to go vegan (not sure if you are or not) you can replace the egg white breakfast with a tofu scramble. Basically scrambled tofu with spices and veggies. It looks a lot like eggs. Still good protein content. If you want to give a shot let me know and i will send a recipe.

I dont think the whey will hurt you, but it wont give you an advantage either. I used to get massive headaches from whey when I would take in 300-400g a day. Just felt like it was drying my brain out. Never felt like that on plant-based protein. Glad to see you are starting a journal.

1 serving protein powder Pre-workout and 2 servings Post-workout. Who the hell eats celery anymore? Lol I cant stand the taste. 1/4cup of oats not enough to start your day unless you competing in a BBing contest! Id go for at least 1/2 - a full cup.

Workouts seems decent. Id recommend you combine your shoulders with legs. You shouldnt have just a shoulder day IMO. Waste of time. My shoulders fucking rock when pumped and I never have a full workout dedicated to them. 5 sets a good rule to have on workouts. I like that.

What kind of rice protein did you get? The only one I can find in Saskatoon is Nutribiotic.

What do you think of it? It took me some getting used to. It's kind of chalky and not sweet at all. It reminds me of the unsweetened baking chocolate...

I've been using it for about a month now and it's grown on me though.
