So Iï¿½??m a 19 year old 1st year collegiate power lifter attending a rather unusual college. Not to name any names but letï¿½??s just say that we eat in a mess hall and I wear a uniform. Anyway, I lift at the 242lb/110kg weight class and currently weigh in at 242 or a little below and I was looking at some tips as how to clean up my diet and get a little leaner while continuing to build strength.
The thing is though, is that I have such an active lifestyle that I am burning nearly 4500 calories a day at a minimum. With the way our meals work, 10 of us sit at a table together and each table in the hall gets the same amount of food. Sometimes this can be plenty for the table, other times we are fighting over the last morsel. Since I burn off so many calories a day, I pretty much have to eat as much as a can at every meal, regardless of what I am eating. When possible I try to eat healthy, but when the vegetables are steamed in mass quantity, they are not the most appetizing choices out there.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and if this is to little information to work with I can fill-in whatever I missed here. Understand that there are opportunities for me to eat things that arnt on the daily menu, but that would involve extra time that I donï¿½??t always have and would require spending money and we all know how terrible that is.
So here is the menu from a few days ago,
Breakfast - Scrambled eggs, Chicken Fried Steak, Biscuit.
Lunch - Lasagna, Garlic Bread, Iced Chocolate Brownie
Dinner - Spanish Chicken and Rice(practically rice with chicken juice), Cajun Shrimp, Banana Cake
Thanks in advance
