I have posted a few times here about my bad lower back and recently tweaked my front deltoid doing incline and want some opinions on how nutrition plays a factor in injury.
I am trying to lose weight and I am having a hell of a time trying to cut at all, although my strength is gaining. I do not do enough cardio, although I feel like i do enough where I can still lose weight (i.e. 4 times a week, 20-30 min) Right now I am 6'3" 240 27 years old...My diet looks like this
AM: 2-3 eggs with broccoli and onion
~10 AM- Low-Fat cottage cheese, hand full of almonds
~12ish- Protein Bar
~4ish- Protein Shake
Dinner, usually big salad with Grilled Chx or Steak and Vegtables
Before bed, hand full of almonds, maybe some cottage cheese
This varies of course and I cheat on football Sundays. I also enjoy a few beers every now and again, and again.
I have not had problems cutting weight before and either attribute it to my metabolism slowing down or not enough cardio....this is fine because it is the winter and I don't do any activities outside of the gym.
I am concerned that nutrtion is playing a factor in my recent injuries, but how can I find a balance between trying to lose weight and getting enough nutrition to supplement workouts? Is cardio the answer?
