So lately I have set weight training aside alittle to try to get cut and have been doing a lot of cardio. What I want to know, is whats best to get definition in the core area like abs and around there.
Also, I have been planning to try to gain weight but I'm having trouble thinking of a good diet to stick to and gain. Can any of you guys tell me the best meat to eat for weight gain without fat?
In order to get definition in your abs, you just have to have a low body fat index, around or under 10% depending upon what you mean by "definition." The goal to gaining weight is simply eat a lot, and lift/workout hard. Here is a diet I use, I was at 170 when starting this, and now im 185 with a lower body fat index.
6 am: 2 cups of oatmeal, 2 cups skim milk, 2 egg yolks, 3 egg whites
9 am: 2 cups yogurt, PB sandwich on 4 slices wheat bread
12 pm: can of tuna mixed in mayo, on 4 slices whole wheat bread, handful of nuts and an apple
3 pm: 2 bananas, protein shake in cup of milk
6 pm: 5oz steak, rice, salad
10pm: sugar free pudding mixed in 2 cups milk, bowl oatmeal, 4 eggwhites
Note, I didn't make this diet, I found it on a website, implemented it to fit stuff I like, and it worked. This is strictly for putting on lean muscle mass. About the meats, you can fit any "unprocessed" meat into your diet pretty easily, just look out for the frozen pre-cooked chicken, steaks, etc. because they are normally loaded with sodium and sat. fats. Don't worry about completely eliminating all fats from your diet, just make sure to keep saturated fats to a minimum. Hope it helps, and let us know how it goes
