Greetings. I started a new training program and it has thus far been very successful, judging by my new PR’s thus far. I am having trouble eating more.
I have certainly increased my diet about 500kcal since I started, but I totally dropped cardio for a short time to see how my body responds. As such, I am burning less energy overall. I am still not gaining weight.
When I am in the gym, and sometimes at home, I feel as if I have to vomit almost all the time. I eat when I am not hungry, right before bed, sometimes in the middle of the night, and immediately after waking up. During the day I do develop a strong appetite still, so it isn’t as if I always have to force myself to eat. But, sometimes I do.
I don’t have a problem forcing myself to eat, but how can I possibly add mass if I feel full all the time. I eat probably every hour, so for me to outline my “meals” would be useless. Here is a typical day, in order from early AM to before bed.
Total cereal w/ oatmeal, nuts, OJ, whey protein
Post-workout: whey shake + apple, sweet potatoes
Beans, brussel sprouts, broccoli, salmon
3 omega egg w/ yolk sandwich (oat bread), w/ spinach
multigrain pasta w/ tuna sauce
*oatmeal, crackers, nuts, fresh fruit, raw vegetables throughout the day. also, homemade almond butter (PB is kind of lame)
lentil slop w/ turkey sausage and brown rice
before bed: yogurt w/ casein protein and raw vegetables, sometimes nuts.
By the time I get to the lentil slop, I am stuffed. Eating that last meal is a real challenge and I look like a pregnant woman before bed.
My weight has not increased (5’10 155-6 lbs) but I think I am building some muscle mass as my lifts are increasing. To make sure that I do not prematurely stall out, I need to take in more calories. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
