Daily Diet

Post by uppc »

Hi!

I'm 16 yrs old (170lb, 6'' 20)(78kg, 1.83m) and as you may know, diet is not good. Fastfood...., you know what I mean...
I'm here looking for help to this. I'd like to have a good diet and also try to gain muscle, get a little bit ripped.
I have 2 dumbells (20 pound each) so if you can give some daily workout using them it would be great (always at home, I don't have a gym in the zone)

I don't have a 'goal'. I just want to have a healthy diet and a better body.

Thanks!

The dumbells will be an issue becasue you don't have any different ones, so you'll be underworking some areas and working others quite well or with shoulders 20lbs will be too much for some stuff.

I'd reccomend a total body workout 3x a week, using just bodyweight.

So this sort of thing should work.

Squats, 2 sets, 10 reps

Lunges, 2 sets, 10 reps

Good Mornings, 2 sets, 10 reps

Press ups, 2 sets, 10 reps

Bent Over Rows, 2 sets, 10 reps

Shrugs, 2 sets, 10 reps

Planks 45 seconds.

Can you be more specific on the diet? What meals and what times do you eat?

Thanks!

About the diet: I usually wake up at 7am and have some breakfast. At 12-1pm I have 40 minutes to have lunch. Then about 6-7pm I'm at home.

In that case see if this plan I've posted before works for you.

Bowl of Whole-grain Cereal + grilled Bacon and scrambled Eggs, (Fat trimmed off the Bacon, 2 Egg Whites + Yolk)

Option 2.

Protain shake, small portion of Nuts, (excluding higher carb ones like Cashews, Chestnuts and Grapenuts), + Apple. Give the Apple 10-15 minutes to digest to improve digestion.


Snack

Option 1.

Portion of Turkey + Orange

Option 2.

Small Portion of Peanuts, some Chicken + Raw Carrott.


Lunch

Option 1.

Large Beef Sandwich with trimmings, I.E. Tomato, Lettuce, Cucumber etc.

Option 2.

Bowl of Chicken Soup, + Pot of yoghurt.


Snack

Option 1.

Turkey + Cashews

Option 2.

Ham + 2 large Tomatos


Dinner

Option 1.

Pork with Peas + mashed Potato.

Option 2.

Chicken and Mushroom with Rice

Option 3.

100g Halibut + Broccoli

Easy on the bread with both options.

You could add a few things to certain meals, like Sea Salt, Cracked Black Pepper. Parsley, Mustard, Herbs, Garlic.

NO to anabolics.

NO to Creatine for now. Get the diet and training in synch for a few weeks, then maybe reconsider on the Creatine ONLY, not the anabolics

You can try body weight workouts, it can really help, get you in shape beside using you dumbbells.
you can try push up variations, pull ups, chin ups, squats and lunges.
all what you need is Pull up bar and you body :)
you can use your dumbbells to do shoulder press, biceps curls and other workout

Instead of going to fast foods, why not prepare your meal personally even by starting with your snacks. You can have fruits and fresh green salad instead of having burgers.

Many foods are easy to prepare anyway if they're cold ones, as they're ready to eat.

You have to eat green vegetables and fruits daily.Because the amount of calories in vegetables and fruits are less.Vegetables and fruits are the good source of vitamins & minerals.

That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. The amount of calories in fruit and vegetables has no bearing on how often you should eat them. The nutrition within is a key aspect of how often you should eat them. not their caloric content.

Also what are the amount of calories in fruits and vegetables less than? an apple or a large potato when cooked, have more calories than a small egg. A large potato has about the same calories as a chicken breast. and a large broccoli stalk contains more calories than a chicken breast, so saying certain foods have less calories is fine, providing you're comparing them to other foods so people find it easier to know what mean.
