I love this thread. Since you all know what you're talking about can someone critique my current food regimine.
I am currently 120 as far as I know. I would like a lose fat and gain muscle. I think I may need to eat more but I don't want to just get fat. I've been lifting free weights mainly for the past week.
Before working out in the morning:
Toast with butter for energy
Half a glass of water, maybe orange juice if there's any
Water during workout
2 eggs and a slice of bacon
sometimes add shredded cheese to the eggs
cup of coffee with 3 teaspoons of sugar
Snack on whatever may be around, usually a handful of salted popcorn or a peanut butter jelly sandwich
Pains me to say a processed box casserole (i.e. hamburger helper) this happens if I'm not the one cooking
OR steamed chicken breast with steamed mixed vegetables. Sometimes the vegetables are fresh and may be boiled.
Further snacking may include more popcorn or something sweet. I may have a cup of herbal tea in the evening.
That's just a general idea but is there anyway this can be improved? Right now I'm pretty thin but I am carrying fat in my midsection. Any advice on how to address that through diet would be great.
