Hi guys! Im new here but Ive been reading tnation articles for a while. Naturally, i am familiar with the importance of periworkout nutririon.
I have been lifting weights for a few years now. I am fairly satisfied with my looks but i wouldnt mind looking a bit stronger. Im hardgainer and i know how important is to eat like a beast to gain mass.
So, recently, i had this idea. And i guess some may think this was an idiotic idea, but anyway, i had to try it. I had very hard time eating all those amounts of food, especially all the pasta and rice. So i decided to switch pasta and rice for the greater amount of vegetables, and to compensate that, i drank all those carbs pre, during and post workout in a form of a dextrose mixed with a whey.
So, roughly, my eating schedule was:
Breakfast - whole grains with one banana and spoon of honey
Lunch 1 - protein with veggies
Lunch 2 - protein with veggies
Preworkout - 100g dextrose with whey
During workout - 100g dextrose with whey
Dinner - protein with a piece of fruit (like a banana) and some nuts
Please, tell me your opinion on this. And no need for insults if this was awful idea... i would like consctructive criticism so I could learn.
Oh yeah, and i am 2 kilos lighter than usual at this point of training. Im not sure wheher its muscle or fat that is toned down
Thank you for you replies!
