Any Bodybuilders On Here?

20 posts in this topic

What do you eat? I am trying to gain weight/muscle mass but all of the posts I am reading are telling me to stop eating everything. Fruits and vegetable don't put on pounds. I am currently eating a lot of oatmeal, eggs, Chicken breasts ( hormone & steroid free), Pea or Hemp protein shakes with Almond milk, and fruits and vegetables. Any foods, reciepes, or links to posts would be great.

Thanks in Advance.

healthy carbs and fats, such as sweet potatoes, avocados and nuts, try eating brown rice if your skin doesnt have any problem with it


My log might be helpful for you,check it out!! tongue.pnghttp://www.acne.org/...stic-pics-incl/

-I controlled my acne after cutting off whey protein, after 4 months it came back.

-Then i tried an strict paleo diet, it worked. But the ocassional few pimples didnt let my PIH fade

-I wasnt happy with my routine, coudnt drink with my friends, eat different food and the worst: i was loosing confidence

-When my PIH was fading, i broke out, because i tried vitamin C to end with the ocassional pimples, which might cause stomach irritation=break out

- I wasnt happy because of my diet, just broke out, and i started accutane asap.

- Currently, im taking accutane even thought my acne is mild, but with persistant PIH, just few weeks left, no more pimples anymore.

"If i had a wish, i woudnt ask for flawless skin, I'd ask for the maxium of confidence"

Poeple think they are going to be happy and confident if they get rid of their acne...well..they are totally wrong

The only way your going to add weight is to match or go above your weight in protein intake each day. If your 150lbs you need to be taking in that much in Protein each day. Good move switching to the Almond Milk I like the vanilla. I think as long as you balance a good healthy diet each day you can drink the protein shakes but also try and consume your protein intake by natural foods like farm raised chicken.

Yes sir, carbs: currently potatos(sweet/baked/mashed), white/brown rice, oatmeal, bagels, bananas, pasta are doing trick for me. make sure most of your meals are from food sources not just shakes. protein from: steak, chicken, tilapia, salmon, tuna, cod, turkey

Thanks guys. Yea i actually really like the Almond Milk. Chocolate almond milk W/ ice, banana, and Hemp protein is really good. Wouldnt white rice, bagels, and pasta be considered bad carbs? Thanks

Grass fed, organic beef seems to be a popular treat amongst omivorous acne-dieters around here. Have read a couple of posts on bone broths and something called the GAPS diet, which seems to be very high in protein and fairly low-carb (no grains etc.)


Wanna see what happens when an obsessive picker quits and ditches a lot of products to heal? Check out my Acne.org journal!

I believe in: greens, breathing, Yogi tea, spirulina, riding bikes, pumpkins, water and things that smell nice

Face care routine:

Shiseido Extra Gentle foaming cleanser

Shiseido The Skincare Hydro Nourishing Softener (toner)

Shiseido The Skincare Protective moisturiser spf 15

Shiseido The Skincare Night Moisture Recharge

Mario Badescu Healing Cream

On and off using: Clinique blemish solution spot gel

white rice, bagels, white pasta, bread, are refined carbs, so yep, they are considered bad carbs

Stay away from any grains. Or things that come from a can. Other than that your diet sounds pretty good.


Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):

Morning:

Gentle wash with DKR cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)

Evening:

Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil

i dont agree that your intake of protein has to be the same as your bodyweight i weight 180 lbs and i know for a fact that my intake is below that probably like 100-125 GRAMS each day.. and my body mass is still increasing

Everyone's body is different it's just a good rule of thumb to follow for those who are really wanting to gain weight it is a proven method that works for most unless your really consuming more protein then you think I know I was at first until I started keeping track of everything each day I shoved into my mouth.

Be careful with oatmeal. It has gluten.

Went from 105 pds (yes) to 170 in 4 years bodybuilding

What I eat for mass gaining :

- brown rice / pasta for carbs, in small portions

- vegetables, fruits (raw fruits)

- nuts

- brown bread, in sandwiches

- proteins : salmon, trout, tuna, red beans, lentils, beef, raw beef, pork, ham, poultry (tons), eggs (a fucking ton of white eggs), cottage cheese

- morning : oatmeal + a fruit + some milk (just a little) + 3 or 4 egg whites

Watch for Eric Cressey & John Berardi advices on bodybuilding eat

What makes me breakout WITHOUT skin routine :

- any protein shake

- alcohol

- creatine

- mass gainers

What makes me breakout with skin routine :

- casein protein (instant killer, I get instantly spots, like 2 hours after during digestion, those things suck)

- mass gainers

So I take whey and sometimes creatine

I think creatine sucks because when you stop it you lose the water mass and I don't feel any strength increase.

Most of my gains were done when I did not take shakes, but more food.

I try to eat simple meals. They are not the most tasty but they are good and fill me. However in order to take mass I have to run high on fats because I was a skinny dude and I cannot eat like 500 g meat every day...

I've tried whey protein before, it was even unflavoured and organic and i broke out within 2 hours. It's because its got such a massive insulin response. So i looked around and i found that they sell egg white protein... anyone tried this? I dont wanna waste my money again...

Gaining weight on an acne diet is so hard.. lol, Ive been tryin to find the perfect diet for years now for that. Women have it easy to us men, they can eat 2k calories a day and be just fine n healthy, seems to me the more calories equals more acne. If I dont eat 3k calories a day I lose weight. But through it all I have found for me..

1000 calories in grass fed beef/liver/chicken/eggs/seafood, 1000 calories in lentils/sweet potatoes, 1000 calories in oil fats, EVOO/Coconut/Hemp, 300 cal in 3 bananas right after workout, and then about 400 cal in sunflower/pumpkin/chia seeds.

Which brings me to 3700 calories, I also have a greens juice in the morning and eat veggies but I dont even count those as they are so low calories. Im a hardgainer and need to eat around 4k calories to gain weight, and so far this is doing me the trick.

Hey I like 100 per. Wheat pasta and get frozen chicken tenderloins in bulk under3 bucks a pound and can order lean organic buffalo from blackwing meats all great for weightlifting. And stay away from tetracycline and macrolide antibiotics they all immediately mess with your muscle strength big time.if u have to use antibiotics use duricef spdctraCef not as dramatic for causing muscle strength loss espec. The pushing exercises

Not hard to get 1k calories from oils, every TBL has 120 cal. About 3 TBl coconut oil with the seed mix I eat, 2 TBL of olive oil for each meal so thats 4tbl, then 2 tbl at night of hemp oil for the cal and GLA omegas. Thats over 1000 calories right there.

And I dont eat that many sweet potatoes, I said 1k between lentils/sweet potatoes, but I eat different kind of beans not just lentils but I eat quite a bit. One cup of dried lentils is 600 calories, I usually eat 2 cups a day which is 1200 calories.

And yeah my skins been good for a while but also because Ive been healthy for a while.. took literally a year before hormones and everything really balanced out, I only get a handful of spots a year now.
