      Default 220

      For some time now my bodyweight has been bouncing between 210-215lbs. I have been focusing for the last few months with gettingas close to 8 meals a day as i can. unfortunately at least 3 of these meals have been more like snacks, like pbj or a quick quicken sandwhich. My midnight feedings, which i was notorious for, had been the one i was most likely to skip lately. In an effort to get more calories in and at the same time try not to go broke, I starting bringing about 1/3lbs of barillo multigrain pasta with about 8 oz of chicken diced up with me for my meals at work. I would still bring my loaf of bread and pbj to have as well, and actually i usually ate the pasta and a sandwhich for 1 meal and the rest the of the pasta and chicken at my other 2 feedings at work. Sometimes i got another pbj at the end of the day too. well i guess i hit the nail on the head with this plan because i am up to 220lbs as of last nightand the wife said i looked great the other night way before i talked about getting on the scale. Per 2oz The pasta has 210calories, 2grams of fat(1gram polyunsat, .5gram monounsat), 0 cholesterol, 25mgs of sodium, 10grams of protein, 38grams of carbs(4grams of fiber and 2grams sugar).

      Last week i just used tomato sauce on the pasta, this week i actually made a homemade mac'n'cheese with the pasta. I did also make up another pound of pasta to have with the red sauce. My wettest dream right now to to make it to 230lbs. I'm planning on sticking with this diet for as long as i can. Im thinking i'll throw some diced up steak in the mix and also some haddock to keep the protein sources varied and keep from getting bored.

      The big take home message i want to impress upon people is that diet is THE KEY!! Yes gear is great, hell i havent been completely off in years, but they are only a piece of the puzzle. I haven't added anything special to my cycle lately, in fact i simplified it. I went from test, tren e and deca to just test about 6 weeks ago.
      Well its time to pack my work clothes, pack my lunch box and go destroy my legs. i just read an article with hany rambod and he recommended doing 2 warm up sets with progressively heavier weights and then 1 working set to failure at 8 plus 2 forced reps and one set to failure at 8 plus 2 forced reps and 5 partials. Sounds pretty intense, going to try to work that scheme into this workout somehow, maybe on my squats(if i can find a spotter) or just on extensions/curls. I'll figure it out while i'm warming up on the treadmill.

      being that i've always been a small guy with a fast metabolism making gains after 200lbs has been slow coming. Its been a real effort to finally get this organized/scheduled with my meals. this morning was;
      4am 3 eggs and an english muffin with pbj and gatorade
      530am 1 serving 1mr
      during workout 1 scoop no synthesize+1 scoop volumaize
      9am 4oz pasta and 4oz chicken
      1230 pasta and 2pbj
      3pm pasta and pork chop
      5pm 2 slices of pizza
      730 pasta with red sauce, 2 meatballs on 2 hot dog buns, garlic bread and another meatball
      10pm 2 english muffins with pbj

      i am very fortunate to be able to eat as many carbs as i do and stay lean. but its a blessing and a curse.

      looking at your setup their, i would say that the culprit that is killing you is that your protein is a little on the low side. maybe crank it up to around 60-100g per meal. that should get you back gaining cause it looks like your fat and carbs are where they should be for your metabolism

      ya know what, it is easier to see that when its down on paper. every other meal is maybe 30grams and then i have the other half that are around 50-60. 430am i'll have to up the egg count, i'm gonna shoot for six. subbing out some type of meat(maybe turkey) for one pbj and definitely some more protein at pre dinner snack and at night. Guess i should force myself to log it everyday as extra incentive to make it right.

      man, that is a great idea. i have almost everyday for the last 10 years in binders. i can go back and see exactly what has worked and what i was doing when i stalled out. for me what has worked best is to slowly add in 1-2oz every wk until i start putting on body fat then i back back down.

      Also. It is nearly impossible for me to bulk with chicken it seems. I have to eat a lot of beef and some fish to see the scale change.
