Thanks for the replies guys. I am plan on a 16 week prep but, am using an extra 4 weeks to really keep track what I am eating macro wise. Since, the amount of physical work can vary from day to day the amount of calories I need during my shift changes.
What I have been doing for the last week is taking extra food whether I will eat it or not . I have also been keeping my meals to just fat and protein during the day saving all my carbs for pre/post training. So far it has been working however, I really do not like front loading calories/food to the earlier part of the day but, it seems that it will be necessary.
4:30 am: eggs, tallow and coconut oil
7 am- chicken, coconut oil and tallow
11 am-chicken, coconut oil and tallow or steak
3pm- chicken, coconut oil and tallow or steak
6 pm- rice, blue berries, splenda and some type of “junk” carb.
7:30 pm-shake after training
8:30 pm- some type of protein, fat, and the rest of my carbs.
- I did not list veggies but, I eat them at every meal.
