Life outside of my comfort zone.

Around September to October last year I started hitting the gym and doing cardio. My weight aroung that time is 200lbs and I lost probably 20lbs by the end of October last year. I stopped working out by the start of November because of too many family gatherings and Christmas season is coming up. I decided to hit the gym again and after reading about stuff here I decided to do Icf 5x5. I wanna be strong and lean before I go to flying school next year. I'm already done with my 3rd day today. I eat about 2000 calories per day and it is broken down into 5 meals of 400 calories each. I try to get 8 hours of sleep everyday.  I dont know much stuff about bodybuilding and aesthetic. Comments are much appreciated. Thanks and Godspeed everyone!

    Should I change anything from my diet and program?
  • nrg500nrg500 Posts: 1,235B-Class
    Why 5 meals a day ? Do you have a small appetite and you find it hard to eat your daily requirements within 2 to 4 meals ?

    Is it bad? coz I thought that eating 5 small meals a day would boost my metabolism and so that i can fuel my body through the entire day. I think 5 meals also help me control my hunger and keeps me from over eating. Should I make my diet 3-4 meals or should I stick to 5 meals? Thanks to your response bud.

    @ dimzon

    Yes, wala namang epekto yung meal frequency sa body composition. Natanong ko lang kasi baka ginagawa nya yun dahil sa "eat every 2 to 3 hours to prevent muscle loss / increase your metabolism". Galing ako sa ganyang eating pattern at hassle yun. Our diet should not prevent us from doing more important things

    Calorie counting ? Kung di naman sya physique competitor, it's better to not count calories. Kumain ka lang ng whole food at maraming gulay. Syempre, kumain din ng cheat meal maybe once or twice a week para naman di ma-praning sa diet at mag-binge eating


    edit:
    Binasa ko uli ang post nya. Oo, ginagawa nya daw to increase his metabolism. Isa yun sa kalokohan sa fitness/health industry. Walang scientific basis yun

    Kung hunger control lang, kumain lang sya ng maraming lean meat at maraming gulay.

    IMO you can be flexible with food choices. Eat what you feel is beneficial for you. But of course if you've been eating garbage for a long time switching to healthier food sources is the way to go. Just don't lose your sanity over dieting because it can corrupt your mind. I ate 7 krispy kreme donuts last night, I think I'm normal hehehe

    lunch ko naman yung entire menu na ata ng mister kabab+ cake! Dinner ko last saturday half ng BFF bundle sa Mcdo (daming fries, 2pc chicken, quarter pounder, large coke zero) + banana oreo mcflurry and mc dip + 1 cheeseburger + 2 krsipy chicken sandwich. I don't want to miss the fun with my family. Looks too much shit, but I can get away with those crap because I eat like a cave man 300 days a year. Not to mention I only sleep 4 hours everyday because of what i do. Not to mention I broke my wrist beaczuse I curled the DL of the skinny guy while he's texting.

    All these are not even outside my comfort zone.

    @jonar188 experiment on training first then, don't overhaul your diet 100% right away. Adjust 30% of the over all menu then stick with it. After a few months adjust another 30% and stick with it. After that you'll have 60% figured out. Much easier to learn how to work on the remaining 40%. Goodluck bro :)

    Try use EZ Bar for curling. If it still hurts, switch to dumbbells
