First off after much arguing and trial and error I have taking the nutritional advice of many of you on the site.
I work out 5 days a week:
Monday: Upper Body
Tuesday: Lower Body
Wednesday: Upper Body
Thursday: Lower Body
(1/2 hour of light cardio pre workout, 1/2 hour of running post workout Mon to Thurs)
I lift heavy as I possibly can with out having an aneurism: dead lifts, squats, etc, usually 3 sets times 4 reps.
Any ways I have upped my calories to about 2800 plus a day, I am trying to loose some body fat while keeping and attempting to build muscle. My diet consists of four protein shakes a day, in them I put:
Base Protein Drink: 250 Cals
1 Cup Whole Milk: 120 Cals
1 Tbls Peanut Butter: 110 Cals
1 Tbls Flax Oil: 130 Cals
1 Tbls Benifiber 10 Cals
Some sort of fruit for flavor
Total: 620 Cals
I have 4 of these shakes a day, and one solid meal of beef , chicken, or some other high protein food. In addition to this I’ll eat some nuts if I feel hungry, almonds, pistachios, or walnuts. To drink I stick with water and green tea.
I was wondering if there was any sort of nutrients I’m missing that I really need with this type of diet? Does any one know any thing that I should change out from this sort of diet?
