  • Clean Diet advice

    I am 6'2" 215lbs 17% with calipers -20% neck waist measurement

    I lift 3 times a week (very consistent for 1 year now)
    I eat six meals a day (very consistent for 3 months)
    I will implement morning fasted walking and Running on OFF days to start reducing fat.

    I would like advice on my food choices, my meals are as follows

    Chicken breast
    1 cup rice
    1.5 cups broccoli

    2 Scoops whey
    1 cup oatmeal

    Chicken breast
    1 cup rice
    1.5 cups cauliflower

    2 Scoops whey
    1 cup oatmeal

    Top sirloin
    Asparagus

    2 scoops whey

    Totals about 2700 cals 340G protein making it 50%P, 30%C, 20%F

    Is this a "CLEAN" Diet?
    Are my Macros good for gaining lean mass while Loosing fat?

    These are pretty much my macros right now (cutting), although I'm around 2400 calories.

        It's flank. I ate so much of it I'm doing sirloin for a while.

          Do you eat 6 meals because you think you need to or because you have trouble eating big meals?

            To address the question as to whether this is a "CLEAN" diet, yes. Unless you are slathering your food with butter, cooking with grease, using sugar loaded sauces or things along those lines, I would consider it clean.

            Although you say your macros are 50%P, 30%C, 20%F, I really don't see where the fat is coming from based on your food choices. Chicken breast has minimal fat and sirloin is a lean cut of beef, and your other food choices do not contain any significant amount of fat.

            If you are looking to create lean mass, have you considered eating more carbs on your training days and less on your off days? On your off days you can add some extra fats to some of your meals in lieu of carbs and on training days try increasing carb intake around your training time.

              I am going to be blunt and tell you if you are that height (my height too) at your weight and bodyfat, you aren't holding much size...

              Since you are here on IM in the pound, I am GUESSING you want to become quite large...

              Your diet ain't gonna cut it. Start throwing caution to the wind and eating until you wanna burst, wait 2 hours, than do it again. Maintain your cardio, CRUSH yourself with heavy weights and come back in a year and tell us of your progress.

              Stop worrying about eating clean, and worry about EATING MORE. Search the thread "diet" by Massive G. Read it and it will tell you pretty much a dummy proof method of eating to put on size.

              Now, if you are going to reply with I just want to add a little size slowly and keep your abs, or something along those lines, I will simply just say:

              1: Great, up your protein and progress in strength, you will get there eventually.

              2. You're in the wrong place for that kind of advice.

              Good luck

                If I eat big meals I only get down one or two.
                If I use Shakes (1 cup of oats and 50g of whey) I can get down some more.

                  Thanks for being blunt.

                  I have no visible ABS, so that's not a concern for me. However I do have a 36" waist and can only get up to about 38"-39" before the military will kick me out.

                  In order to prevent adding more then 3-4" to my waist how much weight should I look at putting on each week?

                  Do I add more carbs or more protein? Or both.

                  I do a 3x5 routine and max out the reps on the 3rd set (M,W,F). Followed by Pushups and situps for my military testing.
                  Fasted morning walks about 30-40 min (Should I add YHCL to this to help prevent fat or does that make no since when gaining weight?)
                  And 30 Minutes of med-hi intensity Cardio (T,T,S)


                  Let me know if I'm way off the mark here.

                    If you need to keep your wasitline down, I would start throwing in green tea caps to the mix daily, do cardio 3-4 times per week, and shoot to put on MAYBE 1lb per week...it's tough to say, as that is something that is very individual (some guys put fat on one or two areas, other guys lay it down evenly).

                    Add more protein and fat, lower the carbs. Dummy proof method:

                    Want to add muscle? Eat lots of food. Want to add only muscle, I.E. Gain slowly? Watch you carbs, but still eat a lot of food. Want to shred some fat? Keep your protein high, replace some of your carbs with fat but eat at a caloric deficit and do more cardio.

                    In other words, in your situation, I would up the protein, and actually lower the carbs. Most people over eat carbs. You don't need as much as you think.

                      You could also eat right about maintenance, add a bit of cardio and try to shed a bit of fat while growing a bit too....it sounds like you're concerned about getting too heavy due to your job..... Just try to exchange weight, losing a little fat and gaining a bit of muscle and getting stronger, then if you wanna get huge when you get out of the military, you will be at a good point to really pound some food and grow....

                        I have another 8 years until I can get out. I'll be 42.
                        I'm really looking to make a difference over the next 2-3 years.

                          in the "DIET" thread it mentioned grinding chicken.

                          Does that mean grinding it like hamburger?
                          Do the patties stay together on the grill or do you cook them in a pan?
                          Do you guys add anything in them to keep them together? Or for flavor?

                          I was thinking of adding olive oil for a healthy fat instead of eating thighs...

                              OK so i stayed the same size on the 3k diet for 3 weeks
                              I am upping it this week to approx 3800.

                              2 scoops WPC/1 cup dry oatmeal/1 banana

                              10oz chick breast/2tbs mayo/.5cup dry rice

                              2 scoops WPC/1 cup dry oatmeal/1 apple

                              10oz chick breast/2tbs mayo/.5cup dry rice

                              13oz steak/2+tbs bbq sauce/.5cup dry rice

                              2 scoops WPC / 4000mg fishoil

                              It's harder to get it all down but hopefully the extra carbs will spur muscle growth and not fat.

                              Does the type of protein I use really matter? Is there a benefit to paying twice as much for team skip?
