What does Vitamin B12 have to do with caloric intake? I am not cool with the idea of people trying to drink 1,000cals a day from Olive Oil. Yes, you COULD do that, but the act itself seems near retarded and it does not prepare you for actually needing even more food in the future.
Being able to tolerate greater amounts is something you build up to. No one goes from some skinny guy who can only eat 2,000cals a day without choking to downing 5,000cals a day instantly. I would work on getting those calories from real food. I would also not worry about whether every single meal was "clean" as long as your overall food intake wasn't crappy and you had a decent understanding of what foods actually provides some kind of benefit. Cookies don't do anything good for you.
okey thanks, I thought the V B12 helped with the appetite. Its hard to eat when you dont feel any hunger. I eat about 3500 cals from tuna, chicken, eggs,almonds, oatmeal,fish, meat,milk, rice, pasta, fruits, juice and I fill up with icecream and candy so I get around 4500 cals.... I hope it gets easyer to eat more with time like you say.
Dude, drop the ice cream/candy and dump 4 scoops of some protein/carb shake in some whole milk. Also try a cup of 4% cottage cheese right before you brush your teeth and sleep for the night. Just those two 'snacks' should bump you to 5k or so.
my advice, and keep in mind im a newb would be to change your routine some how... like have you been doing the same rep ranges same rest same exersizes same sets for a whole year? if you have your stagnating bad so change something up and you will see gains again
You're training only two days a week with weights... is that because you are doing Muay Thai training?
You're probably burning up a whole hell of a load of calories with that amount of "cardio" work. You could start chugging down a meal replacement shake a couple of times a day on top of what you are eating to get some extra cals.
You made some good gains, nice work up to now...
By the way I love the pic where you are in your Muay Thai gear and have climbed out of a wheelchair to strike a guard pose - it looks badass! Did you injure yourself doing Muay Thai?
Looks like a motor bike crash judging by the bruises on his palms and elbows.
Anyways, I'd say, eat more as X said and also change up your routine a little. You should change your routine every 4 - 6 weeks. (Note: change routine means one or more of: reps, sets, weight, order, etc)
I dont compete anymore in muay thai since I got injuered 2 years ago. After the incident I did one year rehab and then one year with weights. I still train a little muay thai but not in a competing level anymore. I feel two day/week with weights is okey. I train very hard when I?m in the gym. But as you said maybe its time to change the traing abit.
I dont think my muay thai training is affecting my gains because I dont train in the same level as before. Now its just for fun.
belive it or not I got injured during an incident with the mexican police. they broke my leg and arm, in the picture also my left arm is broken.
