As far as pre/post training nutrition. I always have a meal around 2 hours before training, a protein source and some fruit as iv'e found this to work best for me. I also always eat a large meal high in protein with some complex carbs and good fats with half an hour of finishing training.

I eat the same all year round and just vary the amounts depending on if i'm trying to cut for boxing or train for strength etc. Works well for me.

Casein and Whey should be used intelligently.

Whey no longer than 30 minutes after the workout for optimal effect, as it's a very fast protein.
Casein before bed, as it's a very slow protein.

Taking whey with every meal, after waking up, etc is pointless.
Taking casein throughout the day is OK, but unnecessary if you're getting enough protein through regular meals (which you should).

OK, this might be one of the most retarded posts in ESB history, but hear me out, I'm really clueless.
My diet atm is pure gash, I eat fried bacon and eggs for breakfast, have crisps, chocolate and barely 5 fruit and veg a week let alone a day. Yes, it's awful and I hate myself for it. I'm gonna clean it up though. Anyway, what I wanted to know was, as ridiculous as this may sound, if I clean up my diet like the one on the first page, is it possible I'd gain weight but still keep a low bf%. Yes, I know, sounds stupid, but what with all the shit I eat now, I'm still skinny and have a low bf%. I'm 5ft 11 and about 135 pounds, looking at it I'd guess my bf is about 15%. My thoughts are if I clean up my diet, I'd gain weight as I don't actually eat that much currently, but because I'm eating good food and exercising regularly I'd keep the bf% down?
Just tell me to **** off if I'm just being a retard

You could easily gain muscle weight on the diet on page one, just eat larger portions. Whether the large portions will make you gain fat or muscle depends largely on your lifestyle. Eating large amounts of food and not working out will cause your fat percentage to rise, even if the food is healthy. It will not make you as lethargic as on a bad diet though.

The diet fix will give you more energy throughout the day, a diet rich in nutrients will improve your athletic abilities, if nurtured. You'll still have to work out. Your starting position is actually perfect. No excess fat to lose, you can start improving right away.

I don't think there was anything stupid about your post btw.

Thanks mate I thought I was asking a ridiculous question. I plan to work out pretty much everyday of the week, using the stickies on this forum as a guide. In fact I'm pretty much gonna do the beginners boxing routine and maybe adjust it hear and there (no way can I do some of the stuff in my current shape).

Also, what are your thoughts on cereals? I'm ok with eating early in the day and can easily eat a bowl of cereal and do a smoothie. Is bran flakes with mlk any good?

If you work out daily you could notice severe improvements in recovery, energy levels, alertness, etc. A healthier person simply performs better, and it's not by a small margin either.

In general, the less processing a food item has endured, the better. Bran flakes are not optimal, that would be fresh fruits, dairy, things like that. But some brands are a somewhat decent source of grains. The milk is fine. Listen if you want bran flakes by all means, if you work out vigorously you can use a bit of carbs. I eat whole multi grain bread myself, I just need the carbs. Bottom line, some cereal products are good and some are shit. If you take them, select one with as much of the original food (grains) in it, and as little factory made additions as possible. Factory made additions could be corn syrup, taste enhancers, etc. You don't want those.

Yeah I don't know if I even like bran flakes, I just mentioned them coz I see them banging on in their ads about how healthy they are. I know I'm not supposed to go for coco pops and frosties though.

First of all. Great thread. Lots of good info here.

Now for my question. Are the Steamfresh frozen veggies that steam when you cook them in the microwave good for you? I eat them mostly because theyre conveniant and dont take long to cook, but they do have a lot of sodium.

are those the vegetables that come in a bag all mixed cdub? at least you are eating vegetables. it's best to buy the vegetables and cook them seperately than buy the prepackaged kind whenever possible. same goes with canned fruit. the nutritional value is better.

There is an argument that frozen veggies are sometimes 'fresher' than supermarket veggies because they are frozen relatively quickly after harvesting whereas there is often a lengthy storage/transportation lag with the supermarket stuff.

Correct, it's been discussed in this thread as well. They have been blast frozen shortly after harvest, preserving nearly all the nutrients.

Hi all,

I need a few tips on gaining weight - I'm 6'2 and 140lbs and never seem to put an ounce on no matter how much I eat.

I work in an office so find it hard to eat decent food regularly as recommended on the first page - does anyone have any tips for decent food that I can eat throughout the day (i.e. at my desk) that isn't crisps or chocolate?

Cheers
