HI All - Mentoring and Advice requested
 
Hi All,

My current wieght is 117Kgs. But it was not like this before i.e. 4 to 5 years back. I use to go gym daily and train hard but after started working in corporate and late sitting issues I started missing GYM!!.
And moreover started with alcohol and other fried stuffs.....
Now I am with 117 Kgs and obese...
I have again made a promise to myself that I will reduce my weight and will start gym again.
I have got Hydro Whey and Hudroxycut with me...Now I need an urgent advice for my diet plan so that I gain lean mass and start reducing my fat..

Start off by posting up what you are eating now and we can see what we need to adjust.

hey brother, good to see you posting :cheers:

sounds like you need some sort of stable standard by which to begin planning your diet. i'll tell you what i'd do, but i'm not an authority on nutrition or training. if some of the more experienced members chime in with something different, go with their advice.

i'd start by deciding on a goal weight, say 200 lbs. now you can figure out your basic protein needs -- 1 gram per lb. of body weight is a good start, at least. so that's one of your macros figured out: 200 grams of protein.

what about carbs and fat? different people suggest different splits. i've seen 40% carbs, 40% fat, 20% protein. i've also seen 33% carbs, 33% fat, 33% protein. and of course there are lots of radical variations depending on your nutrition goals. let's go with the 2nd one: 33%/33%/33%.

here is a rough estimate of calories per macronutrient:
1g protein = ~4 calories
1g carbohydrate = ~4 calories
1g fat = ~9 calories


so if 200g protein will be 33% of your total calories, then...
33% protein = ~200g = ~800 calories
33% carbs = ~200g = ~800 calories
33% fat = ~90g = ~800 calories


so you're looking at ~2,400 calories total. again, i don't guarantee any particular results with this "plan," this is just perhaps an entry point into beginning to plan your diet. i hope you'll set up a diet and/or a training log so that we can check out the specifics of what you're doing!

No fats and no proteins. You need some work on the diet. You will, if you have not already, crash you metabolism by eating as you are. I would drop the pills and fix the menu.

@ BAMAZAV...Bro seriously I am in need of some proper guidance because I am not able to rip even one gram of my weight and therefore thought of joining gym so that I can manage to control weight atleast at this stage..

So from my last post, you should have some rough idea of how calories can/should be divided. I'm not sure, but it sounds like you might not have read it? The next step that would enable more people to help you is if you create a list for us of your food sources:

Carbohydrate Sources
1. Food 1
2. Food 2
3. Food 3
4. etc.

Fat Sources
1. Food 1
2. etc.

Protein Sources
1. Food 1
2. etc.

Fill in this rough chart with the foods you eat on a regular basis or foods that you could easily incorporate into your diet (e.g., I didn't see any meat, eggs, fish, milk, or chicken in your diet). If you're really unsure, then just list the foods in any order (and maybe give a description of the food -- I've never heard of chapattis).

This and Second's previous post are great places to start. There are quite a few of us here that can help, depending on your goals. Start simple. Make a list, like suggested above, of the food you have available to eat. Log for the next few days anything and everything that goes into your mouth. Share with us height, weight and age and then we can go from there.

Eat a steak?

I don't want to confuse you, but here is what i currently do. I set a minimum protein and fat requirement for the day, make sure i hit that, and then whatever other calories i get, i get.

So something like
225g protein
120g fat
150g carbs

gets me to essentially 2600 calories. the rest is whatever i feel like eating more of to hit my goal of 3000 a day on this cut. One night recently, it was another 75g of carbs from some epic roast potatoes, where as last night i used the rest for extra beef with my tacos.

It doesn't have to be complicated, especially starting out. Switch up to something where you are getting good protein and fat and see how it goes for a couple weeks. Adjust from there.
