right now i am at 138 pounds i am 20 years old but in my opinion i would say that i am pretty close to being "ripped" but just want to know if this is enough food that i am getting to maintain and possibly grow with out losing muscle and adding unwanted fat..

meal 1-3 egg beaters omlettes with fat free shredded cheese usually 3/4 cup (27g protein for cheese) 36 protein for eggs 6 carbs

meal 2- pre workout nitro speed 20 protein

meal 3-post workout blue thunder 32 protein 44 carbs

meal 4-1 cup cottage cheese 14 protein 4 carbs

meal 5-i chicken breast i piece whole wheat bread

meal 6-i can tuna or isopure zero carb

At 138 lbs, I wouldn't worry about being ripped. As far as I can see, that's just about starving. But, I don't know you're bf%, height, workout fequency, goal. A little more info please.

i am 5'11" my bf% is usually at 8% my training split usually is:


I do cardio 7 days a week except wednesday i may skip it or do it at night since i workout in the morning, usaully 30-40 mins cycling from 7mph-9mph as well as abs 5-6 days a week

i wouldnt mind putting on about 10 pounds but i know its not going to happen with all the cardio so any help would be great!

5'11" at 138 pounds and 8% bf??!! That's pretty skinny IMO!! Are you male of female?

You are a rail my friend. You are not eating enough. Stop with all the cardio and pick up a fork.

yea i know it sounds pathetic i can see definition beyond definition (especially in the morning) but i find it hard to eat a lot more food mostly due to work and school....the cardio must be a psychological thing because i always feel like i need to do it to feel good. thanks for the input by the way i am male

Seriously, I think a hard-core bulking cycle is in order.
