So it would be best to eat healthy, lift and do cardio, and have a regular source of good protein to build muscles. And then I should just reduce my intake of protein and increase cardio, while still lifting every now and then.

Thats my take on it. Is it wrong/right?

: getting into a routine would be "right"

cardio on a bulk is only for health reasons
so yea.. you can do some limited low intensity cardio
if you're gaining too much fat then chances are your diet is poor, (not cardio)

you could be more specific: like posting your diet, how often you train+routine, so I can help you more.

I am about 213 pounds, only 190 in muscles,
you sure? that's pretty good.. about 10-11% bf at 213 pounds you would know more than seem to do (maybe just good genetics/bad measurement)

I will admit, nowadays my diet is kind of poor, mainly when I become stressed. Because of exams (stress), I eat a bit too much, and only at the end I realize that I've eaten more than I have to.

I will need to limit my calorie in-take to about 2500 calories. My diet consists of:
Breakfast- cereal (trail mix or cheerios) with 1-2% milk, banana and orange juice

Lunch: Taco Bell (About 2-4 times per week), but thats going to be limited down to 0 during the summer. More often than not, I have a light fish sandwich on multi-grain bread.

Dinner: Rice, my friend makes pretty nice indian curry from time to time so that as well, some chicken (about the size of a thigh), and some type of vegetable.

Between the meals, I sometimes have a Nature Valley bar, or a granola bar of some sort.

I know for a fact that around times like this (stress week), I tend to eat more servings than I have to, especially for dinner. Also, sometimes on a friday night, I would go with my friends to a restaraunt like Chile's and I intake a lot of calories that night.

This is my exercising schedule:
Mondays: Sprints for about 15 minutes and then upper body weightlifting

Tuesdays: about 10 minutes (1 mile) on the elliptical and then 30 minutes on a run, at an average of 6 MPH. In total, I accumlate about 40 minutes of cardio and about 4 miles of distance

Wednesdays: Same as Mondays

Thursdays: Same as Tuesdays

Fridays: Same as Mondays

Saturdays: Same as Tuesdays

Sundays: Either a light jog or just resting.




If you can help me or give me some advice on that, then thanks a lot! Really appreciated. I know my diet is where it's really lacking, especially when I am stressed during exam/finals weeks.

okay, there's no order to that diet

easy important changes/additions to your diet and questions:

you need more/better distributed protein in that diet(chicken/cottage cheese/steak/beef/fish(tuna,salmon etc)

lacks fat (oily fish(salmon, trout, mackerel..) you can supplement with flax seed or fish oil if you don't get much oily fish, eggs, beef, nuts/seeds)

when do you work out? (after what meal)

you should do some lower body weightlifting as well

are you active during the day?

I'd do the sprints on off days maybe (up the intensity of the weightlifting, big compound exercises, heavy weight, lower reps) those include the deadlift, squat, push press, bench press, another good additions are rows, chin/pull ups and others (depends on the person)

I don't have a set time where I work out. Most of the time, however, (3-5 days per week) I usually work out after lunch and before dinner, at around 3 PM. Other times, I workout and excercise either during the night, after 8 PM or in the morning, before 9 AM.

The reason to this is because of college...I mainly have classes during the morning times, and I wrokout or exercise as soon as I come home from school.

And you're right, I think I do need some order to my diet.

mornings and 3 pm sounds good. structure your diet around the time you work out at.

just some ideas:
you can boil eggs in morning, ziploc bag, eat between classes. or you can take a shaker, water + protein powder + oat powder + flax seed oil or w/e. 5-10 minute preparation, in a week it'll be a habit, and you'll be closer achieving the physique you're aiming for.
