I’ve been researching and reading as much as I can regarding the type of diet I would like to pursue. I am trying to put on about 10-15 LBS of mass and gain as much strength as I possibly can. I am currently enrolled in Fire Academy so I would like to gain more size from my current stature to help with the everyday events I may encounter.
I am currently 22 years old and feel I am in pretty decent shape and workout very hard, but my diet lacks, badly. Due to my busy schedule, it’s hard for me to find time to sit down and eat a good meal. Once I can get this sorted out, I feel this is my biggest problem and I will see the gains I eventually would like to see.
Another problem I have is, I am sort of a picky eater I guess you could say. I have no problems with Proteins or fruits and such, but there isn’t many veggies I do enjoy eating other than Potatoes.
I wanted to know if you guys would be able to help me get started in setting up a diet plan that I would be able to follow. I did some research and I know my BMR is 1844 and my DEE is about 3000 Calories. For me to gain the size that I want, I would need to eat between 3300-3600 Calories a day combined with 200-240 grams of Protein.
Currently, the only supplements I take are Whey Isolate PWO, BCAA during work out and creatine before. The BCAA and Creatine brand is Controlled Labs.
I was also wondering if I should switch my BCAA intake to Biotest Caps instead of drinking during and just take the caps through out the day.
Would I be ok if I was to purchase Poliquin Primal Greens and use that as the nutrients that I am not currently getting from the veggies I am not eating. Is that a sufficient case or should I try another alternative?
What types of Oils should I be looking to take throughout the day? Would a standard processed Fish Oil be fine?
Nuts, which are the best to eat during the days for small meals/snacks.
Sorry for the array of questions, I am fairly new and would like to get this straightened out. No point in working my butt off in the gym when I just go the other way when I eat like crap.
