Whats up everyone. I'm new here, so a brief introduction: 24 years old, 5'11", ~190 lbs, former wrestler and current soccer player. Goals: like most, not interested in competition-level bodybuilding but very interested in gaining muscle. Not crazy about the idea of cutting so I guess the aim is to build muscle without sacrificing body fat percentage. If that makes the process slower, so be it. I'm very hardworking and focused in the gym and I feel pretty good about my routines, but with nutrition I'm not quite settled on anything. Here's what I eat (pending free time to cook it) .
1st meal (~9:00):
4 whites of hard-boiled eggs
One of the following - cereal w/ milk, oatmeal, banana & yogurt
2nd and 3rd meal both (~12:00 & ~3:30 respectively):
1 large helping of meat (eg: chicken breast, can of tuna, salmon steak, pork chops, sausages... usually try to make it about 50g protein's worth)
1 1/2 - 2 cups rice (wild, brown, white... it differs) w/ marinara
Not settled on this yet, but usually includes a MetRx blend protein shake, a couple egg whites, and some juice.
~3 liters of water throughout the day
Pre-workout I typically eat as little as possible. Working out with even a modest amount of food in my stomach derails me completely.
Post-workout I drink a 2-scoop protein shake along with a banana and a hot dog bun (they keep well).
What do you think? Thanks in advance
