Ok here is what I had yesterday:
7:30 am: 5 Eggs, 2 slices low carb toast w/almond butter, 2 scoops casein
10:30am: 4 slices turkey bacon
12:30pm: Ground Beef/Feta/Olives not sure of the amount but it’s from the recipe in JB’s gourmet nutrition so around 700 cals for one serving.
3:30pm: Rest of the ground beef another 700 cals.
5:30pm Chicken stir fry w/brown rice
*This is when I was planning to workout but fell asleep instead.
Wokeup at 11:30pm
Had a cup of cottage cheese and went back to bed until 6:30am.
Honestly though, I don’t think this is because of diet. Like I said, this has been happening for a while and my diet was totally different before.
Ok man I know exactly where you are coming from I was on a low carb Atkins crap diet for a long time before I found T-Nation.
- Your diet is not balanced at all, you not getting the nutrients you need. Where is the fruit, veggies? No one ever got fat from eating fruits and veggies, only constipated and malnutrient.
2)Your rice at night is causing you to crash. You need carbs but since you only really eat a good abundunce of them at night you are causeing an insulin spike that is putting you right to sleep, I know I’ve been there.
- You need carbs, I know its scary but you will feel a hell of alot better, just stick to good carbs, brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat bread ect. Also eating the majority of your carbs durning the day instead of at night will help keep the pounds away AND keep your energy up all day.
Serioulsy man you are eating the same way I used to, it was great at first but then after awhile you hit a wall and your energy levels drop and so do any gains. Low carb diets are “Diets” not long term lifestyle nutrition plans.
I know carbs have been made out to be all scary, but they are not, just stay away from the sugary crap and bleached flours.
