Thanks Chris… I’ll look at the program link and your points are noted. I’ll be cheating with a brown rice based vegan gainer but I’m ok with that at this point in the transition.
I appreciate everyone’s help and insights here.
thank you for your time,
the challenge I’m facing is maintaining weight (I don’t have weight to lose)
I’d re-examine your training plan. A full-body workout shouldn’t be taking two hours. And hour-long spin sessions several days a week aren’t in line with your goal of maintaining weight.
Consider this program instead: The Waterbury Method | T NATION
I picked up a bag of vegan weight gainer
If it doesn’t look like this, then I’d rethink your adherence to a “Paleo diet”.
A dozen eggs a day would be another option. Very un-vegan, actually Paleo-friendly, and loaded with quality protein.
I don’t have time to eat and cook all day long
“Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus maybe a snack at some point” has delivered plenty of results. Don’t stress on that end.
