I keep mulling over the “perfect” diet which I know doesn’t exist. I’m 5’8", 172 lbs, 9% bf. Bench 290, squat 360, deadlift 405. I’m really not trying to put on much size, don’t think I’d like to be over 180. Want to get stronger and keep the leanness. Here’s my proposed diet plan.
Also, I’m still kinda old school I guess and favor Surge Recovery post workout. I’m trying to buy into the new “100g carbs pre/during workout” but I find myself still looking for that chocolate shake after I’m done. Is Surge Recovery outdated? I’m trying to figure out how something “cutting edge” a few years ago is now all but obsolete.
4:15am- 1 scoop Anaconda (I’m thinking about dropping this, just going with Finibar. Budget!)
6am- MAG-10 (I just ordered this, so I’ll give it a try)
9am- 2 scoops low carb Metabolic Drive, 1 apple, sunflower seeds
5:30pm- 10 oz. lean meat, 1/2 cup jasmine rice, big bag of broccoli or salad
8:30pm- 1 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 avocado
I know, I know. Plazma is where everyone is going. But at the price right now, I just can’t do it. I love the shakes throughout the day as it just fits into my work schedule. I get 10 min breaks and its much easier to pound a shake than to heat up food and all that. I started at 195 in October and could hit 6 reps with 135 on the bench press. I pretty much lived off Metabolic Drive Low Carb and Surge Recovery, also cycling HOT-ROX. Ate 1-2 HSM’s per day. A quasi V-Diet if you will.
EDIT: Moved from another thread: That’s what I got to spend. No more, no less. What would you do if you were in my shoes. What’s the best plan with that money?
