- Really nasty streak since I left my job to go back to school. Before that, I had my meals packed up and was eating good solid protein filled meals 3-4 times a day at work with a shake or two, plus a solid breakfast bright and early in the AM and a good dinner. All clean food.
Now I'm lucky if I eat breakfast before 1 or 2 in the afternoon. I still try to get it in, but end up drinking a couple shakes then having a couple big meals. I'm not getting any fatter, but I'm also not getting leaner, or more muscular. My protein intake has been probably under 1g/lb bw. I also end up eating some crap on the weekends, chips, cinnamon rolls, waffles, pretty much whatever my girlfriend has laying around or makes me. Plus, I've been boozing a bit on the weekends which I didn't do before.
Right now, my only goal is get in protein (~240g) and eat clean, i.e. meat and vegetables plus fats with some cleaner carbs after training, i.e. bread, rice, potatoes, maybe some pasta during the week. I give myself a couple crappier meals on the weekend with a bit of alcohol to unwind and I'm pretty happy with life.
One thing I have been doing reliably, is a Metabolic Drive shake with some psylium before bed. No matter how much I ate or didn't the day before, I take a nice shit in the morning and life is good.
