So, this is where I stand. I went from 230 to 180 after a serious injury. Currently, after 3.5 months of lifting I’m up at 207 at 6’1, 22 years old. I’m just starting to lift legs again, so I’m sure I’ll gain a significant ammount of weight once that picks up.
However, my current diet is atrocious. I’m getting my strength back, but without a shirt on I don’t look that great. When I was 230 I looked even worse. I’m looking for a way to change my diet that a) will make me look better without a shirt on b) allow me to gain muscle while burning fat c) allow my strength gains to continue without turning into a little bitch. Trust me, I don’t want to be skinny.
That said my average meal plan for a day looks something like this.
Wake up: 2 scoops of regular Grow! mixed in 16 ounces of whole milk. (Sometimes, maybe once or twice a week, breakfast is bacon and three slices of french toast with three glasses of whole milk)
Two-Three hours later: A cheeseburger or two, plain, with ketchup. 2 glasses of whole milk.
One-Three hours later: 1 scoop of Grow! mixed with a glass of whole milk.
Half Hour later: Large bowl of angel hair pasta with olive oil.
Dinner: Double cheeseburger. Two glasses of whole milk, maybe some pasta on the side.
Post-Dinner: Maybe some oatmeal with 2 scoops of Grow!, or just two scoops of grow alone. Sometimes I might go out for some fried chicken or pasta too.
Pre-Workout: 2 Scoops of Grow!
Post-Workout: 2 Scoops of Surge
Obviously, there’s a lot wrong with my diet. Am I not eating enough? Am I eating the wrong things and not enough? Also, on a side note, it’s possible I eat more or less than this. Sometimes I’ll eat a ton of fried chicken in a day, but usually it’s three large meals, consisting of cheeseburgers, pasta, or fried chicken. I also snack on whole wheat bread and pb&j sandwiches on occasion. I also binge on chips or cookies in one sitting maybe two-three times a week. As you can see, I also consume no fruits or veggies. God help me…
I know what it takes for me to gain weight, but it certainly isn’t good, attractive weight.
