hi guys…i’m 5’10", 153lbs with a crazy metabolism…i’m trying to create a diet that will help me put on some solid mass relatively quickly. I’ve read Berardi’s G-Flux article and I’m hooked on the idea of high caloric intake/expenditure.
Any comments/suggestions on the following diet would be very much appreciated. I’m taking a semester off from school and only working/taking classes part-time, so meal timing and preparation time are not much of an issue. I’ve been trying to balance convenience (not having to eat every 90 minutes) with sheer caloric quantity. It hasn’t worked so well, so I’m taking the opportunity to ask for advice from those who have walked this road before.
Meal 1 (8AM): 8 whole eggs/2 cups Quaker old-fashioned oatmeal (1200 kCals)
Meal 2 (10:30AM): 1lb baked chicken breasts/6 slices whole-wheat bread (~900 kCals)
Meal 3 (1PM): 2 tuna sandwiches (each has 1 6oz can of tuna on 2 slices of whole wheat bread; ~600 kCals)
Meal 4 (3:30PM): 2 pb&j sandwiches (~900 kCals)
Meal 5 (6PM): 8 eggs/4 baked potatoes (~1100 kCals)
Meal 6 (8:30PM): 2 tuna sandwiches (~600 kCals)
Meal 7 (11PM): 8 eggs/2 cups oatmeal (~1200 kCals)
In-between all of the meals, I drink fat-free milk. I space the drink sizes out so that I drink 1 gallon by the end of the day. I drink water during the meals to aid digestion, and usually drink 1-1.5 gallons per day.
The macronutrient totals are approximately 550g protein, 800g carbs, 120g fats (all saturated, from the egg yolks). I take about 8 fish oil capsules per day, and add a few spoons of olive oil to the oatmeal. I realize this diet calls for over 8,000 calories per day, but trust me when I tell you, 5k wasn’t cutting it. I’m not very worried about putting on fat, especially considering I can drop it easily anyway (a few weeks of caloric deficit and I’m probably back under 7% bf). Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks…
