After Some Advice/Ideas


#1

I've been serious about my training for the past 12 months in terms of dieting/lifting and I've hit a bit of a plateau not with my training but, my diet in terms of mixing it up and cooking different foods etc. Im 24 yrs old at 90kg 5'8 around 11%, I guess you could say I'm on a lean bulk or clean bulk whatever you want to refer to it as but since i don't know what other varieties of meals i can cook i have been slack the past two weeks and its starting to irritate me.....

Current diet: 6 whole eggs, protein shake, 2 waffles with jam.

meal 2: 200grams either chicken/steak/pork with 100-150 rice or sweet potato

meal 3: 200grams either chicken/steak/pork and veggies

meal 4: 200grams either chicken/steak/pork and veggies

meal 5: 200grams either chicken/steak/pork with 100-150 rice or sweet potato

current split: monday- quads/hams tuesday-chest wednesday-back thursday-shoulders/calfs friday-bis/tris

as you can tell there is not much variety there and very fucking boring so eating my meals can be a bit of a task, for me any way! i don't wanna change the whole thing i just want some ideas to mix it up a bit or things to mix it with.

First time posting so forgive me if its not up to par and I'm open for any suggestions and any ideas/help would be much appreciated and thanks in advance.

p.s might seem like a whole bit of info just for one question but just to give use some idea of me!

you could add a different breakfast, push your usual breakfast to lunch, and that way eliminate a bit of the redundancy.

My breakfast, for example, is Kirkland(costco) Greek Yogurt. It’s low carb, low fat and 21g protein per serving size. What I do is, throw in a scoop of fudge brownie whey protein, mix it with the yogurt. This creates a muscle-building fudge brownie pudding, to which I add fiber One cereal. Pretty bomb breakfast if you ask me.

A dinner that is easy to cook, is ground-beef, with whatever seasoning you enjoy, personally I use, brown-sugar(secret ingredient), ground cumin and sometimes some tex-mex spices. Add pasta sauce(garlic / onion is bomb) and finally mix with wheat elbow macaroni.
By the time I realize I’m full, I’ve already devoured a whole pound of ground beef.

edit: i just realized I always eat til I explode…which is probably not what you are looking for.
