Ive been getting into lifting over the past few months. Got my nutrition down, but now im starting to realise that when im eating what im eating is possibly not working for me. So in a nutshell, here is me currently:
07.45 protein shake made with skim milk (pr34g carb 18g)
10.30 apple 10 almonds
12.45 lunch - wholemeal sandwhich, chicken, salad
15.00 shake (nutrition val as above)
16.05 im still dying from lack of carbs
18.30 dinner, chicken n green beans etc
19.40 maybe low fat yoghurt (9gcarbs/9g pro)and some berries, or a shake
So what im thinking, is that I could do with firstly having my morning shake nearer to when I train (although not too near or I will probably be sick training), and afterwards, im eating slow release carbs, and protein in solid form. Im thinking this is not as beneficial is having it in liquid form. I think I should swap round my lunch and shake.
lso, come late afternoon I am dying from lack of carbs, so im thinking i need to get some surge or something for post work out because the carbs from the bread (34g) are not seeing me through the afternoon after a heavy train.
I have been trying to do it the current way because I thought in theory it would be better and more enjoyable for me to actually eat my carbs rather than have them in liquid form, however, im getting to the stage now where im not too bothered, just want to feel balanced thro the day!
If someone could just have a read of this and let me know if im thinking along the right lines that would be really great, any feedback hughely appreciated. Thanks!!
