FOOD SUGGESTIONS!?!?!

Does anyone know any good recipes for throughout the day? What does everyone eat throughout the day and about how many calories does everyone take in?? Trying to compare to mine to see if i'm doing something wrong that i can improve on.

    What people eat and how much can vary enormously depending on how much they weigh, what their current goals are, what their physiology is like, etc, so it would be impossible to base whether you are on the right track by comparing yourself to others.

    If you give us the above info and tell us what your diet is like then we can give you informed opinions, however, based on this.

    I weigh right now 195Lbs (88.4505Kg) and i'm 6'1" (185.928cm) I want to gain at least 15-20 lbs. What is a typical diet of people on steroids. I mean do they mainly eat whey, tuna, soy? You know what type of things should you really avoid. Obviously McDonlads and Burger King and stuff even though one meal is 1500 calories. Ha Ha

    One last thing, how do i figure my calorie intake like is there a formula or something?

    Thanks Again!

    good things i always find are:

    Cottage cheese: can get these in small tubs from asda for about 30p which makes a handy snack

    BeefSteaks: buy themfrozen from aza for about £1.50 for two, cook them at home and then microwave them at work for 2 mins..

    Rice: yet again stick it in the microwave and its done.

    Flapjacks: good source of carbs with a protein drink

    I work in an office so its hard to make food during the day so most things i eat have to be convenient and made the night before..

    A good formula:

    First take your bodyweight in pounds.

    For cutting, multiply by 11-13
    For maintenance, multiply by 14-16
    For bulking, multiply by 17-20

    This gives you a number of calories per day. The figure you multiply by is not exact because everyone varies so much. I advise it purely to give a starting point from which you can experiment.

    ASDA is like Walmart 30p stands for 30 (pennies) pence, like 30 cents.

    I am 154 pound (ish). So using the above formula it would mean I need 3000 (ish) calories.

    I can tell you for me at least I need 4000-5000 calories to add a good amount of mass, so I would come into the "varies" bit. (this maybe because I do some boxing as well for 30 min after each weights session (3 day split)).
    I would eat more rather than less and then adjust your diet and cardio accordingly afterward when you know how well your body reacts.

    Yeah to a point it is! But i usually buy it in a large amount because i love cheese. While i'm cycling, i can still eat cheese right or is this like a NO NO because it's so fatty?

    Thanks again for everyones information!
