I’ve posted in training sections and guys have been great enough to offer their opinions and advice, so I figured I’d throw some nutrition stuff out here. Here’s a typical training day(bodybuilding style training for aesthetic purposes)…
730am: Whey shake(30g pro), apple sauce, graham cracker
Intra-workout: 30g dextrose, bcaa
Post workout: 4 scrambies w/spinach, english muff with natural grape spread, 3 turkey sausages
12:30ish: Shake- mix of milk and almond milk to 10 ounces(i have no idea why I started mixing the two), 2 tablespoons of yogurt, 2 handfuls of berries, whey(30g), 1 cup of oats, teaspoon of almond butter.
3:00ish: chicken breast, 3 uncooked ounces of basmati rice, greek arugula salad with watermelon and banana pepper(they make it in the restaurant at work and its friggin awesome)
6:00ish: 1 cup of low fat cottage cheese with pineapple
Dinner: varies…5oz ground beef, baked potato, and a handful of veggies(broc, cauli, squash, etc)
Pre bedtime: ice cream with half scoop whey(12g) cuz if it doesn’t have appreciable protein, it’s out.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been gaining much, if anything and I’m full all day. I am 38, 5’7" and between 155 and 160. Reasonably lean I guess, 6-pack when flexed and decent definition throughout. i know bf% are arbitrary, but maybe 12-14%. Wondering if it’s a matter of trying to just add more food, or that I’m at or near my mass limit. Pre thanks for all those kind enough to offer their thoughts.
