I’ve just started this diet by Dr. Berardi but I feel low on energy all the time and hungry even though I’m eating way more. I was thinking it could be because there aren’t many carbs which I’m used to. I thought carbs where good for bulking anyway? Also I’m concerned about the amount of fish oil recommended, why so much when bottles say 2-3 a day!? Can you help me out?
Meal 1:3 egg omelate with mixed veg and cheese +2 fish oil and 2 flax oil capsules
Meal 2:yoghurt+casein+2 fish oil capsules
Meal3:turkey sausages+spinach+carrots++2 flax oil and 4 fish oil capsules
Meal6:beef+spinach+carrots+tablespoon olive oil+2 fish oil capsules+cashews
I haven’t bought JB’s new program yet, but i’m pretty familiar with his writings and thinking over the years.
Just taking a look at your daily breakdown, i can say pretty confidently that you are not getting nearly enough protein.
You’re trying to bulk and your first meal of the day is a 3 egg omlete? No way.
Look at some sample meals posted by some others on here and you’ll find 6-8 eggs in the morning…and pretty much this level of protein at all six meals throughout the day.
You haven’t given a breakdown of your protein intake. All you’ve said is “Yogurt and Casein” which really tells us nothing.
You should be getting at LEAST a gram of protein per pound of body weight. Actually the thinking is 1.5 grams per pound of body weight.
That means if you weigh say 180, you should be getting about 200 grams of protein a day.
That means 33 grams of protein per meal for 6 meals a day.
Now let’s look at your first meal:
3 eggs. An egg has about 6 grams of protein.
Thats 18 grams. Half of what you should be eating, and this is breakfast! A critical meal!
How much do you weigh and how much protein are you taking in daily?
