College Starting + my current meal plan + suggestions?

Hello everyone, I'm glad that all of you are interested in my blog! I'm so thankful for all my followers. Anyways, my semester is starting up again, and I'll be limited on time. I'll try to update my blog twice a week, but I will update it at least once a week.


What would you like me to post about? I want some suggestions on what you guys want  me to write about. I have things to write up on, but I wouldn't mind making a posts out of requests.


Also I am very much into the healthy lifestyle. Here's a little bit about myself. I started about a year ago, and I was still pretty much a newbie. I was a newb for about 6 months, until I realized that I had no muscle (barely any for my size), and I wanted to get more size, then cut to see more definition. 


Here's my bodyspace on bodybuilding.com

As of right now, I am on Intermittent Fasting (http://www.leangains.com/2010/04/leangains-guide.html). It's a plan where you have an 8 hour eating window everyday. Here is an example from the beginning of the day. Please also note that this is not a set time, since I have school some days, work some days, and on weekends I coach basketball.


Wake up
12pm - first meal, pre-packed snacks that I made

  • 12 carrots
  • 32 almonds
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit (assorted)
  • 1 cheese stick
This packet come to around 500 calories, which I just eye-balled and looking at the nutrition labels. 
1pm-4pm (digest/workout, lasts for 1 hour)
4pm-5pm (or right when I get home from workout) - eat 3-4 whole eggs (yes yolk), 1 table spoon cottage cheese, 1 table spoon plain yogurt. (taste like shit btw). I also add some of this popcorn seasoning (white cheddar, and is only 2 calories per teaspoon), it helps give some flavor. This is about give or take 1000 calories give or take, I'm guessing less than 1000. 
After that eat around 7pm-ish, my mom cooks, and I eat whatever she makes. I just make sure not to eat too much, since by the time my second meal comes, I'm already at less than 2000 calories. So I try to limit myself during that last meal.

So I'm eating between 12pm-8pm. The hardest part is probably waking up in the morning, but I drink water and that helps curve my hunger.

Lastly, I actually like some peoples blogs that I follow. Everyday I won't update a blog posts, but I will be going around and checking out peoples blogs with comments! So I'll hit all you up even if I haven't made a post! Good Luck with your lifting goals in 2011, lift heavy and take a multi!

  23. Good luck man. I know firsthand how hard it can be to keep up a decent diet in college, especially when all your friends eat junk food and whatnot all the time.

  24. i hear ya on the limited time due to school man. it's getting tough, but i am still trying to update with quality informative posts. you have been posting some really solid information so far though, so keep that up.

    if i can make a suggestion though: get rid of that music that automatically plays from youtube. no big deal though.
