foods for the day
Hey guys just a quick question about what im going to be eating tomorrow.
Is this setup for a 16 year old 133 pound person going to make me: Maintain? Lose? or Grow? weight. Any advice would be appreciated.

meal 1- 3 egg sandwich on protein bread, apricot- 480 calories
meal 2- protein bar- 270 calories
meal 3- tuna on whole wheat bagel, carrots, blackberries, ceviche salad- 680 calories
meal 4- protein shake- 120 calories
meal 5- dinner with family(healthy stuff)-usually between 500 and 700 calories
meal 6- protein shake, banana- 210 calories

So it totals out between 2260 and 2460 calories BEFORE the workouts. Which is 30 minutes of core work at 3:00 and an hour long mma class at 6:30 so idk how much those 2 burn combined, im assuming quite a bit but again, i dont know. So would this set up cause a 5'9 133 pounder, 16 years old, to maintain, gain, or lose weight? Thanks!

the reason I ask is because I plan on fighting at bantamweight in the coming months and I don't want to go over 135 yet obviously. I read that walking at 3mph for 1 hour burns 200 calories. SO core for 30 minutes AND an MMA class for 1 hour likely burns A LOT so I should be good for not gaining through excess calories right?

Eat different things and weigh yourself every morning and every night and see what does what for your body every persons matabolism is different so see what works for your body and what doessnt. Keep in mind you lose alot of weight while you sleep.

Since you are so young and apparently very active, I would actually try to eat a little more. Add more veggies throughout the day.

Even though you are 133 and close to the BW weight limit I would try and gain a few pounds of muscle. I know cutting weight isn't the healthiest but even now, amateurs are starting to cut 10+ lbs for a fight. You would be a very small fighter in that weight division.

To gain [muscle] weight, I would say to eat anywhere from 500-1000 calories over what you have already calculated. Adjust accordingly to how your body reacts.

If you're only 16 you should be eating more food. Check out this link too: Touch
