Newbie requires guidance
I registered with this site some time ago, but fell seriously ill before I could begin the training!
Anyhoo, having lost a good 10kg of weight, I'm now re-ready to start.
I'm 26 years of age, 5'10" in height and of slender build, I guess. My weight before illness was about 72kg, now its hovering aound 60kg ='( I have never carried any noticable body fat as an adult.
My diet has been quite miniscule for the past 8 or 9 months, 2 meals per day max - tho usually one light snack and one meal. However, this is was mainly due to weakness and a strict anti-caliac, anti candida diet.
These restrictions have now been lifted to some degree and i am now free to exercise \o/
My aim is to build all round strength and stamina, while steadily putting on weight. I expect to regain my natural 70kg mass without much fuss. Once the "norm" has been re-established in these areas, I intend, like almost everyone here, to build upon each =)
Obviously, I will start slow, by following a light version of Cashman's Routine. So all is well in that dept.
However, I am a little concerned about my diet. Below is what I realistically plan to munch:
Morning Drink (Water + Lemon Juice + Apple Cide Vinegar + Cayenne Pepper)
09.00am BREAKFAST: - 4 wholemeal toasts
- 3 Scrambled eggs
- Pint of Lassi (Subcontinental drink - Yoghurt, water, salt, sweetner)
11.30am Carrot Juice + Apple
13.00pm LUNCH: - A Chicken or Lamb dish
16.00pm SNACK: - Shake made from: rice milk, 2 raw eggs, lecathin granules, Nutritional yeast flakes
- 2 Toasts + Natural Peanut Butter
20.00pm DINNER: - As Lunch
- or Wholemeal Pitta bread, light mayo, salad and 2 cans tuna
Supplements: Cod Liver Oil
Wheat Germ Oil
Nutritional Yeast flakes
For me this is quite a munch-packed day, and compared to my previous months of eating (or starvation!), it's mammoth! However, does it incoroprate enough nutitrinal goodness that will help me build mass and strength? Is it a good starting position?
I should add that I am barred from refined sugars, deep fried foods, dairy (except fermented) and most processed foods. I aim to limit the Gluten intake too. My meals will tend to be accompanied by pungent, digestion inducing herbs and spices. I'm not keen on supplements such as whey and creatine - at least for now.
Your thoughts will be much appreciated.
