    Hey Guys, just curious...but the daily routine for me includes:

    Pre workout - 9am :
    Protein Shake
    Amino Acid (Pill form)
    Food: Normally a mix of Banana's, breakfast foods (either cereal or bacon/eggs), string cheese, but not all...cranberry juice - watered down for the sodium...

    NO XPlod - 1 hour before and at least 2 after "eating"

    Workout: Water - Lots.

    Post workout - Fruit Snacks (or normal Fruit), Protein Shake, string cheese...
    Lunch - Turkey/chicken/ham Sandwich - no mayo...sometimes a hoagie

    Post Post workout - Protein Shake

    Dinner - normally a meat, pasta, and veggie w/ice cream as a desert....

    If there are any nutritionists out there that would like to critique this diet please let me know. I am 180 right now and would like to be about 190 by the metabolism is quite high. Thanks and sorry for the long boring post :).

    Hey La Salle,

    That actually sounds pretty good to me. I'm not a licensed nutritionist, but I've done a ton of reading about it over the years. Seems like you're right on track. A lot of nutritionists would say to skip the amino acid pills and get the benefits from whole foods, toss the bacon, and skip the ice cream, but seriously, who can do sorbet when there's Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip to be had? :)
