ok so im thinking 2000 calories. Im also thinking for the sake of simplicity since they said they amount of carbs wasnt to strict and they upped them from version 1.0, I figured to just have one menu id settle in the mid point of the suggested carb spread, so 85. 1.5 grams of protein per lbs of bodyweight means id be needing 330grams of protein.
My lifting program looks like one muscle group a day, 5 days a week. Abs everyday. Maybe I should just do 100 carbs everyday since I train that much.Im Going to be throwing in HIIT atleast 3 times a week, maybe more depending on how my body feels it can handle it.
I’ll be taking Surge recovery post w/o. The tdawg article says,
“If you’re using Biotest Surge, that simply means taking about one scoop before training and one scoop after. That leaves around 50 more carbs to consume on training day. Where do you put them?”
When I look at it it says 3 scoops is one serving, which is 46 carbs, which is another scoop and still less carbs so im confused by that. That would also account for 25 of my 330 protein.
So now what would I do? basically find out what foods I can eat to 0 out the rest of the 50 of my carbs, and what foods I can eat to 0 out the remaining 305g of protein? Hope the calories are under my goal of 2000 and then use healthy fats to get it up to 2000? and if the carbs and protein are over 2k by them selves need to readjust so I have room for some healthy fats?
I like the example diet the article gives.
Sample Daily Diet
Meal #1 (Big breakfast option)
Egg and cheese omelet
Beef jerky, handful of mixed nuts
Tuna, boiled egg
Pre and post-workout drink
So id like to tweak it to work for me.
Questions: Egg and cheese omelet. How many whole eggs and and how many eggwhites are normally used? Id count the protein and carbs and fat in every ingredient correct? So how do I count it when i use just the whites of an egg?
Beef Jerky seems general and theres lots of diff kinds. Is there “healthy and unhealthy” types of beef jerky? What stats am I looking for and to avoid in it?
I’d probly replace the steak with lean hamburger for $ reasons, how would I measure that since id most likely be making the patty out of random amounts of ground beef?
Also how do you measure the calories etc of a plain old head of lettuce or the amount you use for the salad?
Sorry if these are dumb questions but I am a beginner and this does seem sort of complicated to me, thats why m posting in the beginner forum. Thanks for any and all help.
