NEED help for a Meal Plan
 
I have realized its time to get eating healthier, but I am wanting to stay at 260lbs for football and powerlifting. I am looking for a Meal Plan for 6 days a week. Any suggestions are welcome

How are you eating right now, and are you gaining or losing on it?

I was going to ask this as well; people can't really advise others on diet unless they're given some indication of what and how much they are currently eating.

It could be as simple as tweaking your diet here and there or a complete overhaul but if we don't know your current diet and the sorts of foods you eat, it will be difficult for people to comment on a "healthier" diet for you to follow.

So, just swap the current "unhealthy" calories out for healthier choices, I'm sure you already know the basics of healthy food.

I would do what Babs said. If you eat 80% healthy foods and eat until satisfied, and aren't gaining, really no changes needed.

My recommendation is to start using myfitnesspal or the nutritionist to start tracking what you are eating now. Don't change a think at first just input what you eat so you get an average calorie total.

Then take those calories and come up with your macros. 1 gram of protein per lb of body weight is a good benchmark. So 260 grams of protein x 4 calories/gram is 1,040 calories. Fill in the rest with healthy fats and good quality carbs. 65-75 grams of fat might be a good starting point per day.

Make adjustments as needed but know what you are eating and be consistent.
