Afternoon chaps, (Sorry for the long post)
I'm sitting here whilst connected to a 24 hour blood pressure monitoring piece of kit. Judging by the readings I've witnessed over the last few hours, I'm going to average something around 145/80 by the time the doctor gets the kit back. In case I am then told I have high blood pressure, I'd like to be able to speak from a knowledgeable standpoint on my options.
So, I'm wondering, can the T-Nation masses offer any insight into my current eating regime and spot any glaring errors on my part that may be contributing to this problem?
Here's some info on me:
Age - 25
Weight training for 7 years, lots of general exercise before then.
BW - 99kg, approximately 14% BF
Training methods range from HP Mass to 5/3/1 and conditioning workouts.
Now onto the diet:
Monday - Friday
Meal 1 - 100g Oats, 200ml Organic semi-skimmed milk, 25g Reflex Instant Whey
Meal 2 - Kiwi, 25g nuts
Meal 3 - 100g Turkey, 200g Red potato, Celery, Onion, 3dsp Mayo
Meal 4 - Banana, 25g nuts
Meal 5 - Evening meal (usually 400g meat (chicken thighs (every other day skin removed), Turkey, Salmon, Organic beef), olive oil, 200g White rice, green veg such as Broccoli/kale/peas/cabbage)
Meal 6 - 80g Low fat cottage cheese, 2 Organic eggs, 10ml Fish oil
Saturday - Sunday
Meal 1 - 3 Organic eggs, 2 Bread rolls
Meal 2 - 25g Reflex Instant whey
Meal 3 - 100g Oats, 200ml Semi-skimmed milk
Meal 4 - 400ml Organic blueberry yogurt
Meal 5 - Evening meal (as above)
Meal 6 - 80g Low fat cottage cheese, 10ml Fish oil
Fluid intake - each day I consume 2 cups of black coffee (from ground) and 2 cups of green tea, in addition to 1.5lt water.
I have never smoked, and drink no more than 2 500ml bottles of cider per week.
If anyone can see something obvious I'm doing wrong please let me know, your help would be greatly appreciated!
