Trying to get pretty muscular going into school…realized I lost a lot of muscle when I lost a lot of weight from depression, sh*tty nutrition, whatever - 5’ 9" at 156lbs to 5’ 11" 125lbs.
Now I have read a crap load of articles on how to gain weight the right way, I’m not an ectomorph, and from the weight loss, my body is thriving to replace it with fat (FFB article), so after reading some articles on the nutrition, carb-cycling, ect, I was wondering on a few things.
I got cross country at 2:45 to 3:15 almost everyday, fridays and wednesdays off, I think. I am training balls to the freakin wall here, I want to get such in shape, everything, I’m going to be weight lifting every other day, and sometimes if I’m feelin “pumped” a supplemental lift on an “off” day. I want to be in incredible shape and have an incredible body. So here where I thought you guys could come in and just give me some pointers:
I’m gonna be doing Protein and Carb meals, and Protein fat meals. Since my training is basically from 3-5:30, I figure that I should split my meals as:
Protein / carb as breakfast
protein / fat at 10:30
protein / carb at lunch
protein / carb after workout
protein / fat at dinner
protein / fat before bed
Now major questions:
Recommendations on what protein / fat to eat at 10:30 so I don’t look like a complete tool? I was contemplating taking some hard boiled eggs at breakfast, choppin em up while I sipped my oatmeal, and throwin it in a tupperware cup then just wolfing it when no one was looking between classes.
After running - before lifting, 16oz gatorade ok? Then after lifting, banana, apple, and protein shake.
I can not really use a lot of protein, I need to make a 2lb serving last a month, so one scoop a day, so I am just stickin’ to after workout.
Also, how many carbs are allowed in a P/F meal, and how much fat is allowed in a C/P meal?
Just never really saw an answer in the articles saying how much is ok, thought you guys could help. Thanks a bunch
