    I'm thinking of trying a stricly meat/vegetable diet for meals. Of course, I'll have my fruits/bread/so on for snacks, but for meals I was thinking of cutting out any carbs other than vegetables/meats. Is it possible I'd be getting enough carbs with just that?

    yeah. having a serving of vegetables with some form of protein is ok. i wouldn't suggest cutting them out altogether though, because your body needs them for energy. maybe just have a cup of good brown rice (not flavored) with each meal. you should always consume protein first, then carbs, then if you're still hungry 5 minutes later, have a few more carbs.

    Stronger and bigger I suppose. I would include carbs as the biggest staple in your diet. Carbs are protein sparing and they help give you energy throughout the day and especially for your workouts. I use the following:

    1.5 grams of protein/lb
    .4 grams of fat/lb
    and the rest should be filled in with carbs

    see how your body responds to this and make necessary adjustments...

    You're going to have to find out what your body's maintenance level is and add about 500 calories to that so you're gaining about 3-4lbs per month. I don't know how much you weigh, your height, or your body fat percentage, so I'm giving a general answer because you said you want to increase strength. Google any questions that you have and if you have any trouble just PM me or post in this thread, I'll check in tomorrow.

    I'd probably eat something like rice a few hours before working out.

    OTT, yeah man you should be fine.
