Okay quick question. Relevant information first. I am working out 4-5 days a week doing Max-OT. Weight right now is 200lbs. I am getting ~3300kcals on high days ~3000kcals on medium and ~2800 on low days. I usually have 2 high days and 2 low days and 3 med days.
Generally I eat the following in a day but play with the amounts and such.
1 cup oats, 2 tablespoons pb, 1 scoop whey, 2 tbsp brown sugar and cinnamon - ~660kcals
Unsweetened bakers chocolate - ~280kcals
Veggies, 2 tbsp olive oil, half a tin of canned chicken, 4 eggs, 1/2 whites, and sometimes a few slices of cheese on top - ranges from ~800 - 1010kcals
1/2 mixed nuts - ~480kcals
Post workout shake - ~280kcals
Another shake 1 scoop mutant mass gainer and 1 scoop mutant whey - ~400kcals
1 cup rice, half tin of canned chicken, sometimes egg sometimes cheese sometimes tuna with it - ~500-600kcals
Usually get ~130g fat, ~300g carb and ~ 270g protein.
My question is: I was reading in Dr. Clay's book that he tries to eat just under as many calories in a meal as he will use in the coming hours, so is my big ~1000kcal lunch too big for one sitting considering I have an office type job and then proceed to sit for hours after or is it OK? I have been doing this for a few months and me weight is rising steadily but not too quickly and strength continues to improve, but I have a bit of a gut. So basically I am wondering if this large number of midday calories is helping me store more fat than if I split it into two meals?
Thanks in advance.
