    I wouldn't call myself fat or skinny. I'm looking for a good diet to go with my workout. I am going to do the Strength Foundation 12-Week workout here on RJ. What diet should I do? I don't need to lose or gain weight.

    Oh I also work graves, so about 11pm to 4am. I then go to school in the afternoons, was planning on working out before work around 9pm.

    If you're wanting to achieve a specific body structure, you'll need to get scientific and mathematic with it.

    If you're just wanting to improve your overall appearance and feel better, go with more veggies and fruits and nuts/seeds, less and leaner meats, and seldom eat processed foods. Some call it "Paleo" but I simply call it eating healthy.

    I'm assuming that 9:00pm is between work and school.

    I tend to espouse working out "when you wake up" in order to kick start metabolism for the rest of the "day". Also, I like to workout before I do anything else so that no matter what happens, I know I took care of myself first. Strong mind, body, and spirit.

    I'm not perfect about this, but I find it works well for me.

    On the food thing...what Paulflexes said. Also, I've found that reducing or eliminating starches from the diet has really helped me to feel cleaner, and has evidenced in better numbers in my bloodwork.

    However, each person has a different body type. You may have to experiment with various combinations of work, eat, sleep in order to find the combo which works for you.
