I am a chronic under-eater and am trying to figure out how to get enough calories to actually start putting some muscle on my frame. I’m following the math laid out in Thibs’ Nutrition for Newbies. I’m having trouble getting enough carbs into my diet without dipping into the “occasional carb” and “rare carb” sources Thibs mentions.
My diet consists of vegetables, fruits, chicken, ground beef, fish, beans, nuts, protein powder, and water. Based on an ideal day, I’m coming up 20g short on carbs and 20g short on fat. Should I just keep cramming down more of the same or is there a less filling way to get those extra calories?
