Wall of text incoming, I appreciate anyone who takes time to read.
Hey guys, so I, along with probably 90% of the people that float through here have asked about diet options in the past. However, for me, that was more out of curiosity than necessity. Recently though I’ve been feeling bogged down. I’ve scaled my training back a bit with not much improvement, and my lifts are stagnating a bit. My main goal is strength, with a side goal of maintaining not being fat. So here’s the deal:
I work on average 9-10 hours a day. Which isnt uncommon, however were extremely high pace. I’m lucky if I can inch in a 5 minute lunch without being interrupted. It usually turns more into 3 seperate 5-10 minute lunches by the time I’m actually done eating.
I know my biggest immediate fault is breakfast, never been big on eating it, and I have a hard time getting up. However I’m aware if I can get my diet back in check this will hopefully get easier. So starting after my work trip tomorrow, I’ll be focusing on pounding some eggs and maybe ham or something every morning.
Lunch is a pain in the ass, but manageable. However I dont think I’m getting quite enough nutrients in. I broke down my average protein intake every week, and it comes out to around 90-120g (160ish if I manage protein shakes) a day right now. The easier the meal the better, because I sure as hell dont have time to enjoy it. I know chicken and tuna is the go to, but I cant fucking stand either one. Other options? Any kickass ways to bring chicken back to life for me? Tuna is a lost cause for me.
I’ve got dinner nailed. I’m a big fan of binge eating and can slam some food after a workout.
I know I need to suck it up and start eating breakfast.
Dinner is alright.
Extremely protein dense foods for lunch?
Good snacks throughout the day, that take 0 preparation? Something I can kind of shovel in from under my desk whenever I think about it? Preferably cheaper than nuts, but ill manage whatever i have to.
