    5'8" ~150lbs

    Goal:
    Decrease BF%, increase LBM

    Diet:
    Meal 1 (usually pre-workout)
    - 2-3 eggs on wheat bread
    - Banana

    Meal 2 (only post-workout)
    - Protein shake

    Meal 3
    - Fish
    - Bowl of rice
    - Assorted vegetables

    Meal 4
    - Fish or Chicken
    - Bowl of rice
    - Assorted vegetables

    Work-out: (breakdown)
    Monday (~2 hours)
    - 10 minute cardio warm-up
    - Chest, shoulders, arms (triceps)

    Tuesday (~1.5 hours)
    - 10 minute cardio warm-up
    - Legs, back, arms (biceps)

    Thursday (~2 hours)
    - 10 minute cardio warm-up
    - Chest, shoulders, arms (triceps)

    Friday (~1.5 hours)
    - 10 minute cardio warm-up
    - Legs, back, arms (biceps)

    Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday
    2 mile or more run

    So now my question...does my diet look okay? Should I be eating more? Should I throw in a protein bar between meals 3 and 4? Keep in mind, I'm not looking to become a bodybuilder or looking to get huge...

    more carbs post-workout

    if you are in good shape I would lose most or all the running and keep your time between sets short

    Are you actually doing that or just typing bullshit on a msg board? If you are doing it, you will see results.

    I am actually doing that, have been for almost a month now. Before this, I worked out, but no more than 1 hour for 3-5x a week, very unorganized.

    As for calories, I'm taking in about 2600, give or take a 100. About 1100 from the rice, and 900 from the fish.

    Add in protein -- use the 'How to lose Fat' or whatever its called sticky for picking the food. I see your goals say you want to lose body fat and gain lean body mass. What are you trying to do right now? Gain or lose?

    It really looks like your doing too much. You need at least one rest day

    I realize it's not possible to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time unless you are just starting out, but it is possible to put on LBM and drop BF% right? I'm trying to gain muscle while maintaining or decreasing my current BF% (which I don't know).

    I've thought about this as well, I'm probably gonna change my wednesday to an off-day, considering it's right in between fairly intense lifting days.

    Quoted for comedy.

    Ok -- LBM = lean body mass = muscle, BF = fat. Think about what you just said :mamoru:

    If adding lean body mass percent at a rate greater than adding bodyfat, you will gain LBM and lose bf% just not overall bodyfat

    Let's say you're at 165 @ 10 percent, go up to 180 with only marginal net bodyfat gained, you will have decreased bodyfat percentage :cool:

    BF%, not overall BF.

    So I'm thinking about adding a small meal between 4 and 5...

    Maybe cottage cheese and an apple? And I'm gonna throw in a protein bar during my work-out, after I do my 10 minute warm-up cardio and before I start lifting.
