View Full Version : Cleaning up my act
10-18-2010, 07:25 PM
Just caught a look at my gut in the mirror and god damn, I'm really starting to look like a fat person. So in an effort to lean out a bit or at least stop getting fatter, I'm going to cut down to 3500 calories and log my efforts here when I think of it (honesty). I'll start with today, god this is going to be bad:
2 jumbo hot dogs (800 calories)
Half pound bacon, 1 jumbo hot dog (fucking at least 1000 calories)
Frozen chicken pot pie (660 calories)
3/4 mikes frozen pizza (slightly over 1000 calories)
1.3l 2% milk (450-550 calories)
lays potato chips (who knows, maybe 400).
Total: just about 4500 calories. Not as bad as I thought, but the quality is terrible. Lets try to do better tomorrow.
Some 700 cal meal ideas:
7 eggs w/ 2 scoops whey
1 can beans, 1 can tuna, 1 tbs olive oil
1.3 litres whole milk

a little bit better today:
3 whole wheat toast with peanut butter (1.5 tbs) and 50g whey shake ~700cals
Can of beans with 1.5 tbs olive oil ~700cals
Chicken pot pie (was still hungry after those beans but didn't really eat the crust) ~120 cals
Pork chops with rice and asparagus ??who knows??
4 eggs 2 scoops whey ~500
1 litre whole milk 640cals

3 toast with peanut butter, 2 whey scoop shake ~700cals
Beans with 2 tbs olive oil 2 glasses of milk ~950cals
2 sausage 480 cals
half mike frozen pizza 720 cals
peanut butter and raisins 600
1l whole milk 640 cals
total: too much (~4000)

2 whole wheat toast with peanut butter + 50g whey shake - 550-600cals
5 hot dogs, half can italian wedding soup - 650 cals
2 hotdogs - 200 cals
home made lasagna - dunno, maybe 500cals
half pound bacon - 1050 cals
1l whole milk - 640cals
Total : about 3600-3650. I'll switch my target to somewhere between 3500 and 4000 calories but never over 4000.

First, LOL at my food choices in the first post. Terrible.
So I've truly cleaned up my diet now. Oatmeal, skim milk, hard boiled eggs, and whey make up most of my diet, with 4 500 calories meals and one 1000 calorie meal before bed for 3000 total. Getting about 200-230g of protein a day.
I'm going to track my weight loss here. Its January 5th and I weigh 230.

Its Febuary 2nd and I weight 224. I dont think I've actually gained weight though, I'm pretty sure I've still lost. I just woke up very hungry at 5 am and had a glass of milk, some whey, and lots of water.

Starting to eat in a mild surplus to start gaining strength and stop burning out. Trying out some calorie cycling, 4000 cals on training days and 3000-3200 cals on rest days. Hoping to gain no more then half a pound a week.

I havent been able to bring myself to eat 4000 calories in a day so I've been eating 3000 a day with 3500 2-3 times a week. Its working. I'm down to 208 and I'm setting PR's in my upper body lifts again.
