First of all, I’m sure these questions have been answered in one form or another on this forum already. I apologize for re-asking anything you may consider common knowledge.
That being said, I’m re-tooling my diet and found that despite getting adequate protein, I am still calorie deficient for my goal of weight gain. FYI, I’m 5’10" weighing in at around 160lbs, so according to JB’s calculations, I need roughly 3200 or 3500 kcals (can’t remember which).
My numbers for an average day:
- 210g protein (mostly whey and casein) in forms of ON Whey and skim milk, then protein from red meat and poultry.
- 250g carbs (from oatmeal, apples, strawberries, milk, sweet potato, green beans, etc)
- 75g fat (from fish oils, milk, cheese, almonds, other mixed nuts)
However, with that, I only rack up around 2500 kcals. What food groups should I increase? I’m not carb sensitive, so I could stand to eat whole grain pasta. Maybe more fats? More of everything in general? Lemme know. Thanks.
