I’ve been a subscriber to this website for about a year now and am a huge fan of Biotest Surge (scoop before and after every non-cardio workout) and Biotest Low-Carb Grow. Couldn’t imagine what I’d do without 'em! Currently, I eat only whole foods and suck down a lot of chicken, turkey, fish products (canned salmon/tuna), protein shakes (usually three not including Surge), low-sat fat cheese, rye kernel breads, eggs, and a bunch of other stuff. Also try to eat fruits in the AM and eat as many veggies as possible. Drink a lot of water, too.
I’m currently around 8% body fat, 155 lbs at 5’8" or so. I am a huge fan of the Massive Eating diet, and the first time I did it I was able to bring my body weight up to about 161, which is unbelievable for me since my weight never seems to budge. Like any good T-Magger, I maintain a diet log and refer to it any time my diet changes. I was pretty pissed the other day when I realized although I should be getting 3450 calories to be “massive”, I was only doing 2700. I immediately threw in a serving of almonds (170 calories) and a larger lunch (another 200 calories). I’m taking in about 150 grams of carbs (I know–pretty low), 50 grams of fats (a decent mix of healthy sat, poly/mono unsat), and around 325 - 350 grams of protein.
I feel like I’m getting in enough solid food despite my reliance on about 700-800 calories in the form of protein shakes. I’m a consultant and am often on the run. I’d really like to buffer my diet with a good amount of healthy calories to make sure I hit my goal of around 3500 calories. Would something like ISS Gainer Matrix or EAS Mass Factor (basically Gainer with creatine) do me any good since it would force me to take in another 100 grams of low-sugar carbs along with 650 extra calories?
Clearly the recommendation would be to eat another whole food meal, but sometimes it’s just not possible. Let’s be realistic.
