I'm currently planning on setting up a diet to get me from 200 to 225lbs @ 5"10, and bring my strength up.
I was thinking tons of oats, eggs, whole wheat pasta, ground beef, fish, chicken, tuna tins, brown rice, beans, broccoli, spinach, whey etc. And I want to make say 15-25 tupperware meals on a sunday, which will alst me during the work week and i can just bring 3 containers to work and stop buying stuff at work and mix and matching crap and improvising and not getting a stready flow of food. I'll be paying for it myself.
the problem is that my parents are going to ask "how come you didn't make us meals?" "why not just make us supper and have meals" etc. I have no problem helping out with supper and eating that meal with them, but they need to understand i need such a raw amount of calories that im going to have to have my own food in the fridge downstairs as well. This isn't going over too well, it's basically eat with them, and have maybe 1 leftover for the next day, or make 4 times as much food for everyone.
I really can understand the whole MY FOOD NOT SHARING mentality of some people here, people who don't lift or train think it's selfish, but when people ask me to share/ make for them too i see it as toxic behavior and sabotage.
How can I accomplish my diet AND contribute to my family without friction?
