I always thought I was one of those people blessed with a fast metabolism because I could eat like shit and not gain a pound. My eyes have been opened after reading a few articles and it is clear to me that I was really eating like a bird and just pecking at small meals and occassionally glutting on crap.
I’m 165 lbs, and have been on the AD for 3 weeks now, and I’m having a hell of a time! Eating the macro ratio is no problem, I don’t crave carbs.
I’m having a real problem getting enough calories. I am using fitday to track all my meals, and it seems like I’m averaging 2100 calories a day. Obviously I really need to up this by alot to meet my bulking goals, but I find myself getting nauseated after 3 eggs and 3 pieces of bacon in the morning.
I’m doing things like adding flax oil to protein shakes, and sneaking high calorie fats in where I can, but I often find myself at snack time feeling sick after a single bite of cheese.
Any other former peckers turned into big eaters??? Has anyone had problems eating big on the AD? Does this pass?
