Diet / Re: Diet for a Beginner

I'm just speaking from my experiences with weight loss.
My weight fluctuates throughout the year depending on the time. I gain weight for football and lose for wrestling and soccer. After trying several different diets, low carb- high protein diets have worked the best for fat loss, while maintaining as much muscle as possible.
For people with a slow metabolism, gaining weight is easy. Eating high carbs, 3 meals a day, gaining weight is no problem. My best gains happen during high carbs binges.

The Dark/Light meat issue, while somewhat based on personal opinion, is intended to give less energy. Fat is a large portion of the energy that is gotten from meats so lean protein would generally be better since this diet is calorie restricting.

The problem with even well planned cheat meals, is that they aren't usually done to kick-start your metabolism. in general people cheat because they don't have the willpower to stay on their diet causing a one night gorge-fest after which many people decline on their diet from there. If well planned, however, these "cheat sessions" can be used to your advantage if done carefully.

I disagree with Rafe

 Through my personal experience, general carb restriction has helped me the most in fat loss. This means go easy on the following: Corn, Potatoes, Wheat(white & whole), sugar. Carbs are your body's first means of energy to burn; you want to burn fat. What carbs you do eat should come in the morning or 2 or 3 hours before working out so have some fruit for breakfast.
*If you are playing a sport you need carbs. Strenuous exercise without carbs will make your extremely tired.

What Brien said about green tea is spot on. It has loads of antioxidants and it has caffeine so it's a stimulant. This means it burns energy. Drinking green tea makes you burn mare energy than usual. It's like coffee but better for you. Buy a box of tea bags and make a pitcher of it and have 2 cups a day. Just remember that like coffee, it will keep you awake so don't drink it after 2pm. By the way, don't drink that lipton junk. It's loaded with sugar.

 Cut dark meats(which includes any beef or pork products), and replace them with white meat(Turkey, chicken, fish) and eggs. Also, there are no carbs in protein.

Assuming you aren't one of these freaking skinny kids with the lightning fast metabolisms, this will be tough. you need to be disciplined in your diet meaning: NO SODA. I understand your logic of "it's only once a week to satisfy my cravings." But soda is easy to get hooked on and drinking it is nutritionally equivalent to stabbing yourself. Most [well planned] diets that fail do so because of "rewarding yourself, or cheating just a little bit." If you aren't going to stick to the diet, don't start because it won't work.

basic meal plan

Breakfast:fruit(apple or orange) and omelet, green tea

Morn Snack: almonds and pecans, banana,

Lunch: Chicken breast, sugar free jello, & veggies carrot sticks, celery, broccoli etc. green tea

Afterschool snack: tuna fish or cheese stick

dinner: big salad

*drink water throughout the day

I recant my first statement of nobody losing weight on this diet. Two burritos in, there might be enough puking and diarrhea to shred 3 or 4 pounds in a short amount of time.  ;D

And yes, there are 3D dvds.

Protein sources for ovo-lacto vegetarians:
Whole Milk, this should be be your first choice for protein and a great aid in weight gain, milk will become easier to drink as you drink more and more to get used to it. I would recommend starting at 4 cups per day and work your way up to 8 cups per day (half-gallon). This is part of what Jake mentioned in starting small, you don't want to overload your system at once just jumping to a half-gallon of milk per day. 1 ounce of milk contains 1 gram of protein, a half gallon (64 fl.oz.) contains 64 grams of protein, this is why milk has become such a regular part of many of our diets.

Dairy makes me gassy and bloated.

Diet / Re: Helpful supplements for weightlifting

Today, my workout was:
Warm-up(basketball and some pushups)
3x5 squats 125lbs (I weigh about 125-128lbs)
3x5 bench press 145lbs
2x5 free motion fly 60lbs
3x5 Deadlift 115lbs
6 chinups - 4 pullups
2x10 100lbs abdominal machine

First. Try going up in weight each set. Even if it just means adding 2.5lbs to each side of the bar. And don't go above 3x3 on real heavy deadlifts.
As for your workout, it seems to me that you did a very well-rounded routine. I perfer to focus on one area at a time(you kinda had that goin on in your previously posted workouts). My lifting routine generally goes like this:
   Leg ext, leg curl, squat, lunges, leg press, straight-leg deadlift.
   Bench (regular and incline), tricep ext, tricep pullover w/press, chest flys, dips,
Friday-Shoulders and back
   Chin-ups, bent over row, military press and/or dumbell press, lat and delt raises, shrugs

Hey APK, I'm trying to gain a little bit of weight(muscle mass),
Just a quick tidbit about your diet. You don't seem to eat many carbs. Most of the ones you do eat are good carbs from fruit and thats great. A high protein/low-carb diet is good for maintaining/building muscle while burning fat. But taking in carbs in your earlier meals before your workout will help you gain muscle faster and increase your lifts. The only problem is: excess carb calories = fatness; so you have to be sure not to eat too many.

If you want good criticism then you need to lay out some GOALS. You can't say "Is my diet/workout good?" It depends on what you're trying to accomplish. What's good for one person could be crap for another.
