    What I Ate Today...


    Here is what I had for all my meals today, im bulking now, trying to keep fat gain to a minimum, but a little wont hurt anything. This is about a typical day, I got up earlier than normal, but that really didnt make too much of a difference in how much I got in. Eat the same thing everyday, this is about it, sometimes its a little different foods but with same nutritional content, but not very often, which makes it quite boring. Let me know what you think.

    7:00 AM
    2 scoops Pro Complex
    1 whole wheat bagel
    Totals: 515 cals, 65g protein, 60g carbs

    8:30 AM
    6 whole eggs
    1/2 cup shredded cheese
    3 oz ham
    2 cups Raisan Bran
    1 cup 1% milk
    Totals: 1360 cals, 85g protein, 150g carbs

    11:00 AM
    8 oz ground beef
    2 servings whole wheat pasta
    Totals: 860 cals, 55g protein, 82g carbs

    1:45 PM
    24 oz 1% milk
    1 banana
    1 cup oats
    1 scoop Pro Complex
    Totals: 770 cals, 65g protein, 110g carbs

    4:45 PM
    2 cans tuna
    1 bagel
    Totals: 550 cals, 75g protein, 50g carbs

    8:00 PM
    2 chicken breasts
    1 cup brown rice
    Totals: 740 cals, 78g protein, 85g carbs

    11:00 PM
    32oz fat free milk
    Totals: 320 cals, 32g protein, 48g carbs

    1:00 AM
    2 scoops Muscle Milk
    16oz fat free milk
    Totals: 500 cals, 48g protein, 36g carbs

    Daily Total: 5615 cals, 503g protein, 621g carbs
    36% Protein/ 44% carbs/ 20% fat


    So that was today, most days are right around 5k +-200 cals, but I just thought I would post that up and see what you guys thought of it. Weighed this morning at 205.5lbs, did some figuring for my maintainance calorie requirements and it was around 3800kcal, so this should be putting on the weight, my weight has been going up each week. I need some veggies in there, have to work on that. What do you guys think?

    For the past couple of weeks I have been kind of altering my diet like the yo-yo diet where I will eat a little sloppier to put on some weight, and then when I notice my midsection getting a little thicker than I like, I back it down a notch to clean it up. When trying to put on the weight, usually I will add olive oil in at a couple meals/shakes, have some no-bake cookies, or hit up burger king a couple times during the week. Just thought I would throw that in there. Seems to work alright, a couple weeks ago I put on 3lbs in a week, then started cleaning it up, dropped 2lbs, kept it clean still, then gained the 2lbs back. Now I am kind of in the less restrictive mode of putting on the weight for a few more days.

    well first of all, how are you able to sleep so little!!?
    My main problem why I can't eat is because I sleep 10 hours a night lol.

    I can learn a few things from this, good luck nate.

    SJA- I lift around 7pm, I didnt lift yesterday, had lots of studying to do, have a nutrition test and presentation today, also I am taking it easy this week in the gym, getting overtrained so I thought I would back it off a bit.

    On lifting days, right before I leave to lift I will have a protein shake and bagel, or blend up 1 cup of oats with my protein shake. Possibly a peanut butter sandwich in there too. I have to eat before I lift, even if my last meal was 1 hr before my workout, I still get drained during the workout.

    cable26- Ya, as I said at the beginning I usually dont get up that early lol, so that is why I was able to get in a bit more food than usual. Stayed up too late last night and dragging ass today. I usually sleep 6-7hrs/night, and sometimes a 30 min nap during the day. I have a problem making myself go to bed, I will be tired but stay up anyways, its these damn message boards lol. Thats what I hate about the weekends, I sleep in so late, it seems really hard to get in all the calories you need.

    Something that is really weird is I actually lost a couple pounds from yesterday...wtf? lol. That was one of my best diet days and I lose weight....ahh the mysteries I run into trying to gain weight.

    Its going good I think, plus the extra casein from the milk should help too. I dont know how to really judge if its working well or not, but it is definately a nice treat before bed, got the root beer flavor Is that what you are looking for? Sorry if I wasnt more specific.

    I really dont wake up too hungry, on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being absolutely starving, it is probably around a 2. Some mornings are worse than others, but I havent woke up with that killer hunger where you wake up in pain and about rip the fridge door off just trying to scarf some food down to ease the pain.

    Blane, whats up with the pineapple before bed? I havent heard that before, sounds interesting.
