PUTTHEFORKDOWN V. 2022- daily nutrition thread

so i wanted to start this thread as a homage to the old putthaforkdown thread. essentially this should serve as a place for everyone to come to post thier daily nutrition, macros, and daily comments/questions.



THIS NEEDS TO BE A SUPPORTIVE THREAD

please keep comments about about someones specific diet to yourself unless they ask for help. I.E. please dont start a war on no carbs vs carbs, IF vs non IF etc.

If someone ask for advice, by all means post it though

post your expeierences, shoot the shit, whatever. should be just like the old threads which were very productive and friendly.

now, if you post in here and are not staying accountable...expect to be called out. the main purpose of this thread is to help people achieve their 2022 goals.

POST AWAY.


for a calorie/macro calc I suggest the muscle hacking calc, using the leangains setting
LINK


for tracking I suggest the free version of myfitnesspal. If you want paid versions I suggest carbon diet app or avatar nutrition.

if you are an aspiring strength athlete (bodybuilding or powerlifting or olympic lifting) i suggest the RP diet app. Understand you will get awesome results but it is strict as hell and hard.

if you are looking for a beginners strength program I suggest greyskull lp, 531 begginer prep school or stronglifts.

if intermeddiate and looking for strength program, i suggest greyskull powerbuilding, 531, barbell medicie, madcow, ppsa, neversate or believe thrower programming.

if looking for bodybuilding i suggest john meadows, dc training, layne nortons training

re: PUTTHEFORKDOWN V. 2022- daily nutrition thread
so I will start...

I had an inbody test performed on friday. I was 25% Body fat at 205. My goal is to get to 180ish while getting skeletal muscle mass to the 92-93 range and getting to or below 12% body fat.

yesterday




goal is to stay higher carb and keep protein around that 150ish mark until i plateau. at that point i will raise protein and lower carbs by 50g or so. will continue this path until i plateau that away and have to lower calories. This works due to the thermic effect of food with protein.

re: PUTTHEFORKDOWN V. 2022- daily nutrition thread
In 2020, I dropped from around 260 lbs to 200 even by cutting carbs and walking a lot. This wasn't ideal and I know I lost a ton of muscle, but I felt like too much of a fatass to walk in a gym.

In 2021, I started hitting the weights and got substantially stronger and better looking, but shot up to 215ish. At midyear, I started counting calories and aimed for 2400 per day, and got back to 200 while still making strength gains.

In 2022, I will continue with counting calories. It's fairly simple to do and is a great way to hold myself accountable and not overeat. I slacked off for the holidays, but have been pretty consistent with it overall.

At 6', I'm aiming for 180 by the end of 2022, but I will increase calorie intake at any point if strength gains plateau.

I posted in the Inbody thread earlier, but my goal is to lose about 10-12lbs overall. Currently at 198.5 and 15.9% BF. In mid September, I was at 182lbs and 13.2% BF. I'd like to get back to that BF% or less, but weight about 6 or so lbs more overall weight.

I'm going to go back to calculating my macros and counting overall calorie intake. I havent ran the numbers yet, but I figure I'll be shooting for about 2500 total calories a day and about 160g of protein.

dude to go from 260 to even 200 and totally change your body is a big fricking deal so congrats on that

when i went from 245 to 182 a couple years back it was hard as frick so i can only image 260 to 200.

if goal is to go 200 to 180 totally doable to not lose strength, might not gain a ton, but you can not lose any for sure.

if you can keep even 5-6 lbs of the lean mass you gained...you will look awesome

I need to get back to a proper nutrition plan. I’m weighing 228 right now. I was at 205. Bleh. Training is going well, so I don’t think it’s all fat. Especially in my back and ass. I need to figure out my leangains numbers again. Worked well for me in the past.

Thanks. My plan has been to stick with two years of lifting at higher rep levels to allow time for connective tissue to strengthen, so I've got one more year of that. I'm still progressing, but it's forcing the weight to stay lower. I don't want to tear anything. In 2023, the plan will be to really push strength levels.

re: PUTTHEFORKDOWN V. 2022- daily nutrition thread
I spent the last 13 months not being able to lift due to elbow pain. Having surgery Wed to repair torn tendon in arm. Will be 8 to 12 weeks before I can begin truly rehabbing.

I ate and drank like shite over the holidays. Weighed in Dec 26th at 193 lbs at 5'7" determined to change things and not wait until Jan 1 to begin. I downloaded lose it app and tracked cals last week. Weighed in morning of Jan 1 at 186 lbs. I've been walking 3.5 to 4.5 miles a day and walking is about the only thing I'll be able to do until surgery heals up and I get cleared to do more. Goal is to be at 172 lbs by April 11. At that point I should be able to begin lifting enough to rebuild some lost muscle mass.

the boys are back

Where is ELT


ETA: made some progress in 2021 without lifting weights. Shedded a job that was making me miserable. Started playing pickleball 4 times a week and stopped all the anxious snacking while on the road. Got down to sub 200. Just started lifting over the last 3 weeks and have felt great. I hope to see some abs eventually.

ETA2: Forgot one thing. Biggest help to losing weight has been getting my wife on the meal prepping train with me. It’s changed everything.

Hell yea I've been out with an injury for the past 2 months, plus covid, plus drinking every night and eating like shite during the holidays but I'll go do my penance and get an inbody test to see just how much damage I've done. I'm starting to feel a little better and was planning to try to workout light today for the first time since the injury to see how things hold up

Here let me support you

FIFY





Just being a dick.






As my other thread stated, I started taking Ozempic last week. I've noticed a bit of a reduction in appetite, but mostly in the severity of hunger. I still get hungry, even very hungry at times, but it doesn't feel like the usual all-consuming "im going to pass out of i don't eat" kind of hunger I'm accustomed to - it's nice. I feel like a normal person.

That said, we were cooped up in our house from a COVID exposure and I found every excuse in the book to eat like shit, so that's a big fat L.


Start of a new week today, and I'm on track. I'm counting calories + protein in MFP, keeping it flexible because I'm doing a lot in my life right now and don't really have the capacity to hammer the diet hard like I have before.



Here was my inBody scan from last week, too:
