Solly: that's what my friends tell me because they have a hard time gaining weight, I on the other have that weight. I also need to make a grocery list because that's the only way ill be able to control my diet. And I agree I have to be patient and stay consistent. I go to the gym Monday thru Friday. And I appreciate the help

Do you have any advice on what to add or remove from my routine? And I'll add those big lifts to it starting today

Kushy: I wouldn't mind that schedule. I've never heard about it before, do many people suggest this type of routine?

Dabears: that what I wanted to do, I just don't know how to do that. Ill check your guide but do I still lift heavy just decrease my calorie intake? I'm still trying to learn about this

Do the routine kushy posted. A lot of people have success in it and they keep it simple and it's all you need. Just add some HIIT cardio.

Ill post up all of my meals so I can see what I am doing wrong, this is going to be hard considering my love for food! Lol but I've been doing well, but I agree it's mostly fat....not muscle :/

Should I start today or next week?

yeah let me know your thoughts after reading the guide.

I need to update it to make it less confusing (with the carb/fat splitting etc).

but the most important thing is ensuring your calorie intake matches your goals, and that your protein intake is high enough to retain/add muscle. If you have those two things check, you will see results.

Alright I'm going to read it now, but what do you guys do if you are never home and always on the go? I thinks that's why my diet varies. I'm out the door at 6am and don't come home until 8 or 9pm 7 days a week. I have a full time job as a mechanic, full time accounting student, full time girlfriend, full time gym too! Always busy busy busy

yup, what solly said. cook on your downtime, make enough for 4+ meals.

I only eat two meals a day and workout three days a week which allows me to focus better on other things.

full time accountant, part time (self study) student, full time live-in girlfriend etc.

its possible with proper priorities and education!

I told you what to buy. Just put a little of each in every meal and you're good to go.

Almost every meal of mine is this

Meat
veggie
potato
olive oil

Just don't eat the portion sizes I eat. I'm going the opposite way you want to.

My advice is tone your lifting down to something you can accomplish in 50 minutes.

Clean up your diet.

Do cardio 4x a week.

Kushy: I swear it sent twice.....

Green shine: with the schedule I posted earlier including sauna and shower is about 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours, should I cut the whole thing to 50 minutes or so? Just add more cardio?

IMO, a days lifting routine can easily be accomplished in 50 minutes. This does not include sauna or cardio. I don't know about you but if working out 3-4 days a week required 2 hours of my life each day, I'm not sure I could make that life style change a permanent thing. Now 50 minutes a day with added cardio when needed, no problem.
