  • Please help w/ my diet!!

    Hey guys,

    I'll give you a brief run down of my situation. I'm 32 y/o, 5'10", 175 lbs (always been slender and have played organized sports since I was a child). I haven't lifted weights at all since college (so atleast 10 years ago), I have been running on and off though.

    My goal is to add 8-10 lbs of muscle.

    End Goal: I'd like to be pretty pretty cut/toned at around 182-185 lbs.

    So before I get ridiculed for my diet, I want to preface it w/ the fact that I'm a total newbie in regards to dieting. I'm one of those people that can eat a lot of crap and actually lose weight lol. Well, you get the picture.

    Anyways, I basically came up with this diet after looking at articles, blogs, asking a couple of weightlifting buddies I know, etc. Please feel free to chime in and add suggestions because I still don't really know what I'm doing.

    As far as a workout routine, I'm still working on that. I usually wake up at 5 am and study Italian or Real Estate (my passions) so I want to workout in the morning, preferably Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri. However, I will post that sample workout a little later.

    I digress, here is my diet. Don't be too hard on me.

    *I walk about 4 miles a day round trip to work (if that matters)
