    I should be eating "more" 1 day before gym and off day less so? I think Charly spoke about this or somebody mentioning just eat a good meal before you lift and plenty of water as most of what you ate the before matters more. This right?

    Also 5'10 150lb and I feel like I should be more cut or hard/firm. I'm like 50/50 ... So soft :(

    Because your macro breakdown day-to-day is probably pretty lousy.

    Too much salty / oily or fried snacks?
    Becausde aside from my main meals, lunch and dinner, I stopped snacking after university.

    If I do it is usually bread with spread i.e. peanut butter or hummus

    I just don't get it sometimes seeing how I am lactose intolerant, which pretty much eliminates all types of sweet heavy, fattening food.

    edit:
    I think I lost weight too quickly hence the extra skin IMO
    Living with a MMA fighter and trying to incorporate his diet plus training routine completely fucked me over in hindsight, sort of lol

    I also get bloated really easily due to poor digestive system (such a thing?)

    I doubt you're getting anywhere close to enough protein. I think some people go overboard with the protein, but getting about a gram of protein for every pound each day would probably make a huge difference for your body comp in a short period of time. Not necessarily from a growth standpoint, but just in terms of how solid you feel.

    At your weight, it should be pretty easy to hit 150g/day or close to it. A hunk of lean meat (or yes, some sort of fatty meat), maybe a couple scoops of protein powder, a few eggs, and bam, done.

    ^ this

    Stop wondering/guessing/estimating. Sign up for a myfitnesspal account. Track EVERYTHING. Aim for a 40/30/30 or 40/35/25 macro ratio.

    Worse comes to worse, just cook up a bunch of chicken breasts Sunday night, dice them up, store in a giant container, and graze on it over the next several days. Get a small kitchen scale, plop down a few scoops of the chicken onto the scale to get an idea of how much you're eating, and you're good to go. It isn't the sexiest way of eating, but at least you can get a strong foothold in getting close to your target daily protein intake.

    I once had steak everyday and wanted to puke by Wednesday

    Plus it gave me some pretty bad runs to the restroom.
    I'll stick to chicken I guess.

    Will tryout that app. tonight


    edit:
    Thanks for the heads up about protein. It makes sense now since my bro (6'0, ~180) is fucking solid. But he also eats like a cow and takes protein shakes. His numbers are 225/225/225 fwiw. He is totally solid and when he cuts down (if he ever does) he'd be pretty ripped I think. Being younger than me I'm really jelly TBH lol

    Digestive enzymes if you aren't taking them with most of your meals already. I, too, have issues with consuming too much meat in one sitting and enzymes, while not foolproof, help a lot with this issue.

    is this real life? How is a guy looking like that getting on a bodybuilding stage? Looks like he has never done a back exercise in his life. The video of him training legs is also funny, he is doing extensions and explaining how he is trying to focus on the teardrop, and he has absolutley no leg musculature at all.

    it doesn't matter, and the website is a help, but IMO its much better to learn to knock it out yourself. having that info ingrained in your brainz comes in handy when you don't/can't use the intertubes.
