Cheers Clauden. I never cared much about diet. I ate a lot of foods rich in protein, i.e. many eggs for breakfast and throughout the day, lots of poultry and fish, lots of vegetable. For this reason i gained a fair amount of muscle, but i also gained a fair amount of fat with it You see when i started lifting i was brought in via the starting strength type of people. They told me to do GOMAD, eat a crap tonne, and do 3x5 and i would automatically get bigger. Realized a couple of months later this wasnt doing it, read around the muscle building articles and found out just doing high volume was better, and GOMAD wasnt great.
Yes i have been eating a lot of fruit this ramadan, more so than i normally do on a regular basis. I make very large bowls of fruit salads, and after my big meal, continue stuffing myself with fruit. It is easier to eat sweet foods during ramadan than it is to eat spicy savory foods.
I dont count my macros, or protein intake. I just eat as much protein from as many sources as possible, i.e. meat, fish, chicken, eggs, nuts, peanut butter, milk etc... I have never bought protein powder either.
