Well everyone, Ive decided to take on the massive eating diet. Im gonna try to eat in the neighborhood of 4000 cals a day. My problem is that I live in Japan, and I dont have access to a lot of the things that you all do, such as cheap meats...chicken that you dont have to completely disect before cooking (god I hate that), Nutrition Facts on the back of everything, Non-stick Pam spray (off the record, this just sucks), and I dont have Udo's or anything, however the amount of fish I have here more than makes up for it, although its expensive as hell.
Anyways, back to the point. I need to apparently hit an enormous amount of protein a day, and Im wondering if I should do this in Pro+Carb and Pro+Fat meals, or just mix it all together, and make life easier. I mean, what about oatmeal? It has fat in it unfortunately, and its so easy to make...
People who have had success with this diet, please let me know whats up, as I just started today, and I actually went over 4000 calories today. Oops. Tomorrow should work out better though. Anyways guys, i'd love to hear of your experiences. I have 12 months to put on mass, and Ive decided to go with the Anthony Ellis Gaining Mass! program's lifting, and T-Mag's Massive Eating Reloaded, and general health advice from gurus Tom Venuto, and Will Brink.
I also just found out that I can get Tuna in Japan, at 2 cans for a buck! Thats gonna help out big with my protein and fat meals. The problem seems to be that my fat allotment is limited really badly, and my protein goal is insane. 500 grams? Im thinking more like 300-400, and then the rest of the calories that came off of that would most likely go to carbs. Does this sound normal?
Just let me know whats up guys. Like I said, you're all the pros, not me.
BTW, this is a picture of me before the program, just off of Tom Venuto's BFFM program.
I got readings of 9-10% bf. I was at a weight of 93.5kg at that time too (on creatine), which is like 205 lbs I think. Does that seem right? Im taking new...starting...pictures tomorrow morning, I should upload that. I must admit, I feel like a fatass on this program, but I'll let you judge. The next picture will be up soon. Until then, enjoy/judge.
