So my mum being the old fashioned woman who grew up in communist Poland on a farm back in the day has some strong views about lifting and dieting its a miracle I can even step foot in a gym. It’s ok though shes old, nothing I can do she just has some stubborn beliefs. Half a year ago I was 57kg, I am now 74.5kg so I gained a decent amount of weight in a short period of time.
At one point I was eating 4000 calories a day but that’s been going down since my mum is the one who makes my food, she has the final say in how much I eat. She says I am heavy enough already and I do not need to gain any more weight, and if I keep eating a lot I am just going to get fat. 75kg at 6’2 I am still underweight…
I have no interest in cooking, unfortunately I don’t have the time to since I get home after the gym on week days, eat dinner, then go straight to bed. I am a very strange teenager in the fact that I play 0 games at all and don’t really have any leisure time. I would cook ALL of my own meals if I could but I cant at the moment, I will one day.
The biggest problem is not having enough lunch at school. I would like for her to give me my usual food but for me to make a little of my own on top of that since she refuses to do so. What should I eat?
Bread, so therefore sandwiches are completely out of it. I’m not a bird I don’t eat grains, and since I started taking lifting seriously I’ve had a bad acne breakout (had clear skin my whole life until now) and would rather not have the inflammatory properties of grains making it worse.
Best case scenario I was thinking some broccoli, beef, and a bit of sweet potato? My mum tells me time and time again that the food would go bad by the time I eat it, is there any merit to this? General guidance would be very helpful.
Its very painful seeing my weight gain and strength gains slow down.
