My ripped diet!

#1 Postby boardn10 » Tue Jul 10, 2012 10:18 am

I am 225 lbs right now at 6'2" and although I would like to add some more mass, right now I want to get ripped up and will work to add mass in the fall and winter.

This is my diet, not exactly, but these are the things I am eating:

oatmeal
lots of fruit
lots of veggies
whole grain bread (not a ton)
some peanut butter
some nuts
tofu
soy milk
soy yogurt
red potatoes
quinoa
green tea
one cup of home roasted coffee
Protein powder
some dry ceral
brown rice

Trying to limit calories and do more cardio.
What do I do when not bodybuilding or working? Spend time with family, play guitar, write music, snowboard, roast coffee, travel, read, fight for those who are less fortunate than myself.

Dope. Welcome to the forum. Where do you live? I've been riding (boarding) since I was a teenager (Im 31 now). What types of things do you do for cardio?

Been snowboarding since I was 20, I am 42 now. I grew up with some of the early pros and lived in Utah. I hate cardio, only weights....but I am adding bike and stair climber at the gym.

Take out the peanut butter.
High carb, low fat, whole foods. Any questions?

I was thinking of removing all nuts for a while. The thing that worries me about bulking up at 42, it seems so much harder to lose the belly fat at this age. :(

Good idea and yea I turned 40 last year watching my metabolism slowly almost come to a screeching halt all through my 30s.

I will tell you this though I never thought I would be back up to 3000-3500 cals a day and not be putting on fat, but that is exactly what I'm doing with 80/10/10!

I gained a little puffiness which I now think was water (which comes with carbs/glycogen storage) but after my body caught back up I have been losing it again and my strength and muscle size gains haven't stopped.

Horsesense, the problem I and most all people have is that we lose muscle along with fat and gain muscle along with fat so I know it is near impossible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. It is one or the other, gain or lose. When I was about 38 - 40, I was down to about 3,000 - 3,500 calories and I became very lean but I lost a lot of muscle as well. I was only 185 lbs, yikes!

During my bulking this year I was doing close to 6,000 or more calories a day. With that I was gaining muscle and fat. I know this is just part of the process but I am not sure at this point if I want to keep pushing for size before trying to get lean. I wanted to be more lean for the summer but it is getting a bit late and I don't like having my weight go up and down so I may just try to eat cleaner but keep pushing for size. Right now I am 225 at 6'2".

C.O., I don't snowboard much these days. After college I moved to Utah for a while, Salt Lake, and spent a ton of time riding Vermont, including the back country at Stowe. Also took many trips to Jackson, Tahoe, Whistler and others. Home is Philadelphia, PA however and I am lucky if I ride one day a year now. It is not a priority now. My family is number one, and I spend a lot of time on exercise and bodybuilding. Also, music and guitar is higher on the list now than snowboarding, partly because it is easier to do when you have a family and career.

Lunch today was sateed tofu, onion, garlic, broccoli, in liquid aminos and sesame oil with brown rice. Nice long walk this morning. My body weight is almost to 230 lbs. I need to get leaner before I attempt adding any more mass.

Nothing wrong with nuts after you've lost the weight. Omega 6's are essential for a lot of things in the body, including muscle growth, skin, heart and brain health however they get stored in body fat easily in excess because they are so hard to come by out in nature. Anyways, soaked nuts are super healthy since they contain the vitamins, minerals and water content.

Have you tried carrot juice for weight loss?

Have you thought about getting rid of the oils or limiting them?

Ever eat too much at night? I had a hard workout today so I ate extra tonight but I over did it. After a dinner of salad, potatoes, tofu and soy sausage, I then had two bowls of cereal and a cup of yogurt. Stomach hurts, LOL.

I don't know how much proportion of soya bean has to be used in a day. Because soya is good for health but my body can't control the heat of soya and it shows on my face. Can any one suggest me with the right proportion of soya to be consumed. :boxer:
