Hey guys and gals. I've been working on my abs and following the advice that everyone gave me, and I'm starting to see some small differences in the appearance of my abs. Although it's not that big of a change, it has really motivated me and I think that my diet may need some help.
I'm 13, 5'6" and about 120-125 lbs. I've tried resisting the urge of eating my Halloween candy and I've done a pretty good job in my opinion but I feel as though my diet could use help overall. I eat basically what my mom cooks, which doesn't seem too unhealthy but I do eat cake everyonce in a while.
I use to weigh 170 lbs and after dieting, I managed to lose a lot of weight. Since I was fat for a very long time, I didn't really play sports and I guess building muscle was not something that I did until now in my weight training class. I can currently bench press 90 lbs and do 3 pull ups consecutively thanks to this class. I can also run a mile in 7 minutes.
Anyway, I need help constructing I guess sort of a diet with some more protein to really help my muscle development and optimize my results I guess. I would also like to gain some weight in muscle so if anyone can explain to me how this whole bulking and cutting thing works, I would really appreciate it. I guess what I need help with is adding some more healthy foods into my diet and finding out some healthy recipes to go along with them. I hope to accomplish my goal by my birthday in February or June when there is a field trip to kings dominion and I want to have a nice body for the water park there.
For breakfast I usually eat lucky charms, frosted flakes or some cereal like that. I also have a cup of orange juice, and maybe some fruit if I have enough time before school.
I don't eat lunch at school since the food gives me stomach aches so iusually only eat a cookie or two or maybe an ice cream. I guess I should probably eliminate the cookies or ice cream from my diet.
For lunch I usually have what my mom makes which varies. Today we ate out though, and let's just say that I'm feeling guilty for eating two pieces of chocolate cake and lots of other stuff.
I don't really eat much for dinner, I mostly eat something to fill me up like cereal with no milk or a PB and J sandwich and water. I usually try to avoid soda in all of my meals.
My mom is going to Costco tomorrow so I decided to take advantage of it and buy foods which can help me achieve my goal of abs and getting a little bigger. So anyone have any tips, advice, etc.? Feel free to ask me questions if you have any I guess.
