Diet varies every day really in terms of what i actually eat. I have been taking 4 scoops of whey with milk, fruit smoothie, oats and EVOO (depending on time of day) split over 2 shakes. The rest of my calories are made up from 2 big meals, 60-100g protein each and enough carbs and fats to hit a rough calorie goal. If i don’t have a calorie goal at all, i just WILL NOT eat enough. What i think is a lot, is not enough. If it’s written down there as a target, i just force myself to hit it one way or another. Even doing this, i’ve only gained 1-2lb since i started this program and that’s force feeding myself at times to an extent i would think would make me fat if i was doing it without tracking.
My main protein sources are steak, ground beef, eggs (but not that many), beef sausage, rarely chicken because i don’t really like anything i cook myself with chicken.
For carbs i’ve been eating a lot of potatoes but also found those microwave rice packs to be pretty handy. The vegetable pilau rice and stuff is pretty tasty and doesn’t have any nasty ingredients. I do eat wholewheat bread and pasta but not daily.
I aim for roughly 5 portions of fruit / veg per day sometimes i get a little less sometimes i get 7 or 8.
I’ve kind of been put off my food by the stomach problems. Today all i’ve had is a 4 egg and sausage omelette after training, and some fruit smoothie. Don’t feel like cramming in 3500 calories at all right now.
Oh yeah, i also supplement with 3-4g EPA/DHA fish oil per day and a multi. I just realised i forgot all about the vitamin D you mentioned originally.[/quote]
That shake would put me on the toilet for hours.
I’ve had problems with oats, whey, and milk before, but I do have a very sensitive stomach.
Personally back when I drank a lot of whey it would make me so bloated that I had to force feed my next meal, which in turn, made me want to die.
Since switching to MAG-10 I don’t have the problem anymore.
Now I’m able to eat 5500kcals a day without feeling even a little sick.
Making sure to have a good balance of red and white meats, avoiding just about all dairy, and cutting out gluten has been pivotal as well.
So, there’s a little food for thought.
I know how shitty digestive problems can make you feel.
I’ll help anyway I can.
