Not to bad IMO. What are your goals?? Is this working toward them??

It seems like you would want to switch from brown rice every once and awhile, but it seems to be working well for you thus far.

ya it sucks i would def like a change, but my options are limited. My goals are to maintain my current weight/bf. I think I am getting stagnant on this diet though because I have been doing it for so long thats why i wanted to some advice possible ways to change it up. Input appreciated.

“Stagnant,” yet your goal is to stagnate to maintian both current weight and body fat. So the diet is a success.

If you want to gain eat more, lose eat less.

I also agree on the rice thing. Try and get some oats and sweet taters for variety. They are both better complex carb choices IMO as well.

Nice diet. You have the same problem as i do though, it gets boring. Same shit day in day out. I change my diet every month or so just to give it some variety.

Try making an excel sheet that you can use to calculate p/f/c ratios and amounts per meal, that way you can change diets easily.

I have tried to incorporate more oats into this diet, however, oats do not agree with me. I immediately feel bloated after consuming oatmeal whihc leads me to believe that i am allergic to it. I am going to try to get some sweet potatoes into the mix though and see how that works. I would like to gain some (maybe 5 lbs). What do u guys think about having a few meals with all three macros to bulk some? Thanks guys for the input.

LOL. Yeah, I had an oat bloat problem when I first started. You have to drink tons and tons and tons of water. I drink 32oz of water before I eat the oats and then make sure my oatmeal is nice and near soup like consistency.

Try cooking your oats. Plain raw oats seem to give many ppl gastric distress, including myself.

Pour a glass of water per 6 Tbs. of oats you consume and cook in the microwave.

That’s what I do and the problem has subsided.

ya when I have had the oats they were cooked. I had a cup at time. It maybe because I had a large amount, not sure though.
