    Hey all,

    I have been working out in a gym before 5 months for a month, later stopped it due to some reasons. This time, I am on to it seriously (last time, the main reason for me dropping out was I had no partner to help me out in doing bench presses. This time, I have couple friends with me.) and I badly think I need to get onto a better diet.

    What I currently have after workout is :

    1. Eggs
    2. Banana
    3. Milk
    And later a good meal at night.(Potatoes,some leafy vegitables with rice.) and rarely meat.

    Well, I know thats fucking inadequate. :D

    So what I am looking for is maximizing my gym diet without disturbing my parents much. Anything that is easily available at home is mine. (I am from India by the way.)

    All ears for your suggestions.

    How many Eggs? How many egg-whites? How many egg yolks?

    I'd highly recommend chicken and rice, and take whey protein shakes as they help (nothing risky or dangerous).

    What's your routine at the gym?

    Throw in some oatmeal. You need more fiber than that.

    Usually 1 or 2 Eggs, so is the number of whites and yolks.

    I seriously have no idea what a protein shake is lol. I read it at random sites about body building, and I am going to google it up :D

    Depends on your goals. If you're trying to gain mass, then you might want to add a protein/carbohydrate shake or whey protein after working out to speed up your muscle mass building. maybe even a protein meal replacement bar.

    if you're like me, and trying to get lean, then you need to cut out the potatoes and starches. no bread, no sugar. and stick to proteins...fish, chicken and some beef (unless you are Hindu).

    Either way bananas have a lot of sugar, switch to another fruit thats higher in fiber such as apples, oranges or pears.

    You need proteins without fat, then you will get results.

    Rice and chicken works good for me. I hit the gym almost every day or so, and rice and chicken definitely is good.

    Apart from food, whats your activities / routine at the gym itself?

    Add me on Skype for some advice. I'm a thai boxing coach and fitness instructor. Nutrition is one of my specialities.. I cut 22lbs in the last 5 weeks for my fight and can gain it equally as fast. My Skype is Abstroose1.

    In a nutshell though, if you're trying to bulk, you want more carbs.. potatoes, fries, pasta, wholemeal rice, porridge. Regardless of whether you're cutting or bulking, you should be getting at least 1g of protein per lb of body mass per day.

    You need a better routine. You should have push and pull days. Push days are back and biceps, pull days are chest and triceps. 3 days a week is ideal, so you can do push on monday, legs and abs wednesday, and pull on friday.

    Your meal after you workout is the most important.
    Immedieately after workout take a whey protein isolate shake with 50g of protein. Add simple carbs to it if you are lean. An hour later eat a meal with protein and carbs.

    riche and chicken qne hour before the workout. Then after your workout a shake with protein power, maltodextrin and milk ( aorun 500 to 750 mc3 of milk ) . Eat at least 5 good meals per day. Buy some protein powder, is pretty cheap.
