Hey, so I would like to get your opinions on this diet idea. I’m 19 and getting into power lifting. I would be training 3 times a week just for some background. Well I’ll be starting summer school soon as well as a new job at the mall. Summer school is about an hour and the mall job is any where from 4-8 hours. (usually 8) with one 45min lunch break and one 15min break. This doesnt leave me to much time to spread meals out. I’m currently trying to eat around 5-6 meals a day, I’m not getting to anal, just counting calories, protein and try to eat good carbs and fats depending on what I can get. I don’t wanna eat one or two meals and shovel down the other 3-4 within 2 hours. I was on here and asked jim wendler what he recommend for college kids on a budget and he said to eat 4 times a day and before each meal have a protein shake that has 40-50g of protein in it and then eat a normal meal after that. He said this is what he did in college.
What do you guys think about this? Good idea for my situation? I’m down for it but im just worried about the effects of that much whey.
Is that okay? I mean i figure if the velocity diet works it should be fine to have that many shake plus solid foods. I’ll try to put olive oil in the shakes and replace them some times with 2 glasses of milk instead of a shake. I’d only be doing this for summer (3 months) where I’m working crazy hours. Days I’m off I’ll avoid shakes and eat solid foods.
This would be the diet I eat the majority of the week. Besides a few changes here and there.
(btw, I need to save $$$ so I’ll be using 20g of protein shake a meal instead of 40-50)
Glass of milk
Can of tuna
2 peanutbutter sandwhiches on wheat bread
Chicken breast or beef
and then I’ll be drinking milk throughout the day as well.
What do you guys think?
