Just got into lifting January 2011 (Winter semester of my freshmen year in college) at 18 years old. I've been working out and lifting weights since I was a freshmen in high school, but had no real knowledge on what was correct and what was wrong. I had really bad form and my nutrition was sub-par. I joined this forum and since then I keep learning new things. The supplements I'm using are from companies that have been helpful on the boards, and are proven to work.
I currently weigh 235 and am 6' tall.
Max bench: 315
Calculated Deadlift: ~470
I plan on eating fairly healthy, but at the same time plan on following an IIFYM diet. This doesn't mean I'll be eating junk food all the time, but as long as I stay within my macros I won't sweat it.
I plan on doing a diet at ~2800 calories. I'll try and keep it between 2700-2900 for the first few weeks, then see how I need to adjust it.
Protein: 220g = 880 calories
Fat: 100g = 900 calories
Carbs: 255g = 1020 calories
After three weeks I plan on doing a refeed day once a week. The refeed day will fall the day before my hardest lifting day, which is my legs. For refeed I plan on minimizing fat to low as possible, hitting 220g protein, then filling the rest with carbs. So I'll try to ideally hit between 450 and 500g of carbs.
199lbs. At this weight I should be around 10% body fat depending on how much muscle loss I have throughout my cut. Once I get to sub 200, I plan on clean bulking, but that won't be for a while and will be in another log. This log should take around 4-5 months.
I'll save you from all the boring facts about the supplements that you probably already know and just post what I'm taking and how I'll dose them.
Coleus Forskohlii 300mg - Other supplement makers use one half the concentration of our Forskolin.
Fadogia Agrestis PE 1500mg - A full gram and one half, 4 times as potent compared to the competition.
7-methoxyflavone 150mg - We use a patented form of this compound that was proven to be 300% as effective.
Cholecalciferol 1500UI - An advanced form of Vitamin D, shown to dramatically improve muscle growth.
2 caps twice daily since I'm 235 lbs. I have two bottles to run which will give me a 45 day supply.
For the first 30 days I will be taking 1 capsule of TTA twice daily. This will give me 1g of TTA daily. After the first 30 days I will only take 1 cap a day.
After the first 30 days I will start taking 6 caps daily.
If I hit a wall or hunger starts to become a major problem I will also add ec to the stack, but I wont be adding it in till at least month two.
ProMax: 4 caps for 45 days
TTA: 1g for 30 days. Then .5g till DCP runs out.
DCP: After 30 days 6 caps daily.
This will result in 60 days worth of TTA. TTA is not recommended to take for any longer than that.

Supplements that I will continue using will be:
Orange Triad: 3 caps twice daily
CL fishoil: 1 caps twice daily
ON micrognized creatine: 3-5g every other day
Hemavol: Best pump product I've ever tried
I will also start almost every morning off with 2 scoops of Controlled Labs Golden Gains with ~20 ounces of water.
I also plan on running XFA during the summer once I get to a leaner weight.
A big thanks goes out to Mr.Cooper69. He helped me set up the stack, and guided me on how my macros should be.

had 2 scoops of Golden gains for breakfast then an orange during the day. Lifted at 9pm lifts were strong, but I experienced cramping due to the lack of food and a headache. Next time I lift I plan on consuming some carbs preworkout.
Going shopping tomorrow so it'll be easier for me to get my protein intake up.The Muscle Network

100g+ carbs should/must be consumed 2 hours before working out. I find this the best time to use carbs daily.

Here's a line from Layne's article.
"I suggest one consume 35% of their total daily carbohydrates in a meal 1.5 to 2 hours before their workout as this will allow the carbohydrates adequate time to be digested and enter the bloodstream."

But if I go beyond 150g, I feel so full and won't be able to workout for the next 3 hours at least. >100g and <150g is the sweet spot for me.
Btw, Genomyx's Facebook page is bragging about a guy named dbone. And the cops are after him due to the shortage of Glycemyx. Any info about this guy?

I've had a stuffy nose the past few days and now I'm feeling pretty sick. Workout was really good with 86g of carbs 3 hours before. Felt like I had plenty of energy. I came home and tried to eat, but my stomach wouldn't let me. I'm ending today with ~50g fat, 200g carbs, ~100 protein. Hopefully I'm feeling better tomorrow after some sleep(I haven't been sleeping that much due to school).
My biggest problem this first month will be hitting 2800 calories. All my previous cuts I've done between 2000-2500, but this has resulted in massive muscle loss. Hopefully by doing 2800 I lose barely any muscle and just fat.

Today was my off day so I didn't work out. 120 fat , 240 carb, 300 protein. Ate extra to make up for lack of food yesterday. Even though I'm under I'm just going to call it even and start new tomorrow.
Currently running focus xt and piracetam as a study stack, really like it so far. I've received 2 bottles of Super HD from Cellucor so once I'm done with school I'll crack one of them open and see how I like it.The Muscle Network
