What I ate today (school day) so snacking isnt something I can do :/.
Breakfast: a pretty big bowl of gronola ceral and apple
snack: an apple
lunch: 2 pieces of vegatable pizza, bottle of water, cinnamon bun
dinner: 2 itallian sausages, 2 bottles of water, bannana and peanut-butter
snack: 3 packets of oatmeal with milk
There might be 100 grams of protein in here if you’re lucky.
You need MUCH more food than this. If I listed how/what I ate in high school, you’d be disgusted lol.
You say you can’t snack? Are you in class every hour of the day? You could bring a few protein shakes or weight gainers to school with you. [/quote]
I’m at school for 7 hours a day monday-friday, and we only have one hour off total for inbetween classes and lunch but I suppose I could bring a big protein shake in a thermos. Im going to go to the store and get what the fellow above you posted and start eating alot of that Im really willing to do anything that will help me put on weight.[/quote]
Thats a good approach.
The simplest solution for the protein shake is probably to take the dry bottle (or whatever youre using; and you may as well get a shaker cup if youre going to have shakes) and put the powder in the DRY cup. Then when you get to school fill it up with some water and drink it when youre ready. You can let the shake sit around for a few hours.
I mix a shake of8oz of milk, 2 eggs, 30g protein powder, 30g carbohydrate powder, and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil around 7am, bring it to school and drink it around 11am. It’s fine.
I am not suggesting you do this, just showing you how you can mix a shake and carry it around for a bit. The LARGE MAJORITY OF YOUR CALORIES SHOULD COME FROM FOOD.
Eat a big breakfast. And big dinner. Eat what you can at school, hopefully you bring your own food. And have a protein shake if you want. Bring a bag of mixed nuts to school and eat that, along with some dried fruit like raisins, cranberries and apricots (In addition to your lunch)
By big breakfast I mean a few eggs a bowl oatmeal or cereal and some fruit and a glass of milk.
Big dinner: large portion of meat. large portion of rice, potatoes, pasta. Large portion of vegetables.
When it comes to figuring out how much to eat, youre going to have to do some work. You can try to guess but youll probably just be wasting time.
Youre young and have time to figure this stuff out. Dont go crazy over this stuff but be aware of it.
