After reading the how to get big (in a big nutshell) thread, I decided to start eating more.
I figured to keep my protein synthesis up all day I would start eating 1.5 servings of 1.5% cottage cheese between meals. I also started having bigger portions of my breakfast (Kashi Go Lean Cereal), and tried to have more meat for lunch (which is boiled ground turkey.)
I have been wondering how many calories I've been taking in, so I just added this all into the diet tracker. Apparently I am consuming 1841 calories total, with 221g of protein, 93 of carbs, and 65 coming from fat. The fat ratio is 40.5% sat, 19% poly, and 40.5% mono.
The last time I hopped on the scale I was 122lbs, I think. I didn't really note the date but I did note the fact that I thought I should eat more because I haven't gained any weight. I've weighed 120lbs for awhile now. It's my homeostasis I would guess.
But it couldn't have been more than 2 weeks ago that I weighed myself at 122lbs. Probably not even that long, maybe one week...but my sense of time is pretty bad, so I'm not too sure. I just did it a few moments ago, and I'm 132lbs now. (My supervisor/boss has two in her office.) And yes, I'm on AM at work. but it looks like I'm working. haha
Anyways, do you think I should cut down on the calories? I don't want to weigh 160 lbs in 2 months from now.
And just for reference I'm 5'8", and I only work out 3x a week ATM. And only for 1hr each time. (and I mostly just hit 1 body part with as many sets as I can for that hour. With a superset for 3 more sets at the end.)
