Hi. I’ve got three nutrition questions I’m hoping people might be able to help me with. In advance, I thank everyone for their feedback.
- I find that in addition to loving peanut butter, it’s the right food to “fill me up” when lean meats or carbs won’t work. However, I’m wondering if i’m eating too much of it. I usually only eat it before I go to bed…my last meal will be a couple cups of cottage cheese, but increasingly I’ve come to find cottage cheese TOO BLAND to eat alone. So…I dunk a couple tablespoons of PB into the Cottage cheese, and enjoy. Problem is this, I don’t work out till late, don’t finish up at the gym till about 9:00 pm, at which point I take my post workout Surge. By 10:00, I’m ready for my cottage cheese and peanut butter. But then, I find I’m still really hungry, so I might eat 3 maybe 4 more TB of peanut butter straight. One, is this too much PB…is it too much ALSO to be taking in this amount of fat right before beddy bye?
2)I have heard how "bad" fruits are to a body builder's diet. So, for the longest time, I eliminated fruit from my diet altogether. Then, I started thinking about my "health" meaning, fruit may not be good for bodybuilders, but it sure offers a lot of vitamins and minerals the body needs....so I'm in a dilemma... I want to bring more fruits into my diet, because...they ARE good for you... I just don't know what to eat, how much to eat and when to eat. At present, all I'm doing is eating fruit as part of my breakfast meal and that's it. any suggestions?
3) My supplements right now are just Surge and creatine....I mix the creatine with the Surge in water - half before I work out, half right after I work out...I also know that creatine works best with a high glycemic liquid like grape juice....am I compromising the benefit of the creatine, but just mixing it (and the Surge) with water? Would it be better that I take the Surge/creatine combo with grape juice (or a grape/apple juice, which is cheaper?)
Again, thanks for all your replies. I appreciate the help.
