Venison, correct me if I'm wrong, has the highest protien content of any wild game meat. Elk and Buffalo meat also is high in protein and tastes just like beef.

Proteins:


Carbs:
Oatmeal
Bananas
Rice cakes


Rice cakes have a pretty high glycemic index. I'd be carefull about when i include them in my bbing diet

5. Carbohydrates are essential in fueling your muscles, whether you’re bulking or cutting. Carbohydrates allow glycogen stores to be replenished therefore giving you more energy for your workouts. Carbohydrates should make up around 40-50% of the calories you take in.

So is this all the time Cutting and Bulking or do you just use the carb intake mainly on Bulking stages..??  I have been using Carbs heavy during heavy workouts but  I have always been confused on if I should cut them out to loose more fat during the Cutting Stage...??  I am a newbie .. I am 5'10 220 LBS I have a tremendous amount of Muscle but it comes with a pretty good chunk of fat in the middle area..I eat like a horse and workout enough to burn most of it but can't seem to really get that cut look.. What should I do..I have to be doing something wrong in my diet.

You should still be taking in carbs right after your workout (a good carb is dextrose for post workout). However, you should try and reduce the amount of carbs you are taking in at other times throughout the day when you are cutting. Also, be sure to watch your fat intake as well.

Beef jerky is fine, the only thing to watch out for high sodium

Why do you gotta watch out for high sodium?

If you are cutting than you should watch out for high sodium because it can cause water retention, which can inhibit a vascular look. Also, it can even raise blood pressure if an excessive amount of sodium is consumed, due to  water retention.

Since this is basic I dont think that supplaments should be mentioned. The meal plan by Jackel was ok but it did mention using a particular whey protein and MRP. I dont think newbies, the ones who need to know the "basics", need to worry so much about MRP's and protein powders. Rather they should learn what protein does, what carbs do, what fats do and where the nutrition label is found. Then how it all comes together for building mass, loosing body fat. "Cutting" is used to much for just weight loss. Actual contest cutting is way different from just plain old weight loss. IMO. Looks good man!

have you heard why it is best for protein and putting on lean muscle? Full cream milk has a buttload of saturated fat and the protein in it is the same as the protein in skim milk I would think.

Ham is not a great source of protien, in fact it's kind of a waste of time and money.

what the heck is wrong with ham????

'most' ham is lower in protein and higher in fat. Much higher in fat. Saturated of course.

Over christmas i have been sampling some other meats for a change....

Had duck on christmas day (and again tonight)....very nice, probably my favourite meat at the moment....

Had wood pigeon earlier in the week... kinda small but very rich and tasty, highly recommended...

Had pheasant breasts last week too, nice but not gamey enough... bland like chicken and turkey...

Have partridge and grouse on order but they have to come down from Scotland yet...

(as is probably evident, i havent trained since the first week of december and i have no intention of starting soon ...i'll start training next week.... or the week after.... or after that.)

 ;D

Sea scallops are high in protein, no carbs & no sodium, add some whole wheat pasta, diced tomatoes in juice & you have 600 lean calories - ( I add Turkey sausage in the off season for 750 good tasting calories)

"Do not eat 3 hours before bed time"

I need to fix this.  I always get to my shake and flax oil or almonds way too late.  Appetite for diet food isn't very high.  ::)

Great sample diet Jackel.
