Need some advice for fitting in all my protein
So lately I have been getting very nauseous from my protein shakes...
My day consists of:
7:00 am - get up
7:30 am - breakfast consisting of 5-6 eggs (mostly whites) and a piece of WH toast or a Meal Replacement Shake (24 g protein, 24 g carbs)
10:00 am - pre-workout protein shake w/creatine and half of a sweetpotato
11:15 - workout
12:30-12:45 pm - post-workout shake and a banana
1:30 - chicken breast and 1 cup of WH pasta (just hot sauce)
4:00 - 6 oz greek yogurt
7:00 - supper (meat and veggies - no carbs)
10:00 - protein shake (casein)
My current goal is cutting weight so I am eating around 250g protein, 150g carbs, 30g fat
My first question is does anyone see any issues with this current eating plan for cutting
The biggest thing is what changes can I make pre and post workout to avoid the nausea. Before I was eating almonds and a 2% cheese stick but ditched it for the protein and sweetpotato but its killing me. I workout on my lunch break so I cannot change that and I am never hungry it at least 10 am due to the eggs.
I hope someone with a lot more knowledge on nutrition will chime in. I have tried to research for myself but you get so many conflicting ideas

Secondly, are you 100% sure its the protein shakes that are causing the nausea and not being dehydrated? If it is the protein shakes, are you having a reaction to the type of protein used?
Also, you dont need to shy away from sat fat. Sat fat (in moderation) keeps t-levels up.

**PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE ANYONE ELSE RESPONDS**
Current weight is 213. I forgot a key piece of information. I am using cellucor C4 extreme as my preworkout energy. So the problem is I am unable to drink a protein shake (10:00 am) and use my preworkout shake (taken about 10:45) without getting nauseous. On my cardio days I do not use the C4 and do not have the nausea. Also I can take the C4 on days when I do not drink a protein shake beforehand and I do not have any issues. So its really the combo of the two. I cannot believe I forgot this bit of info. So with that being said is there an alternative preworkout energy drink that is not as harsh on the system. I really love the C4 it help so much with my intensity. What is more important the intensity gained from the C4 or the protein preworkout. I do drink a shake immediately after my workout as well.

Whatever happened to a quad espresso as a preworkout?
Throw in a lot of sugar and you'll get a hell of a pump from the insulin.....

Not really sure about your case. However, a pre-workout shake isnt really necessary. If its the combination of pre-workout and protein that is causing the headache, you might want to ditch the protein shake and just take the pre-workout. Then after, take your post workout if it doesnt bug you.

What are some ideas for a small preworkout meal that will provide a decent amt of both carbs and protein. I will continue drinking my post-workout shake as I have not had any issues thus far.
Thanks for all the help men!

Instead of making a breakfast meal of whole foods (i.e, eggs), why not just make that a time when you drink a shake?
I've been drinking these shakes for over two years solid, just about every day and I've been able to stay in good shape. I mostly like them because they're convenient and nutritious.
1.) Grind up 1/2 cups oats in blender or electronic coffee grinder... The goal is to have powdered oats
2.) Add milk (I recommend at least 1.25 cups)
3.) Add banana
4.) Add scoop of whey protein or protein blend (blend would work great, but whey works just as well with the milk and oats).
You could lessen the ingredients if you want less calories. But even when I'm cutting, I prefer more calories early and then taper off during the day.
Something like this could solve your not being hungry problem due to eating eggs early in the morning. I used to wake up and make big breakfasts when I was bulking... Eggs, toast, oats, fruit, milk. It would take me 10 minutes to make it and then at least 10 minutes to eat it. Then I realized I could just blend up some stuff to make a shake and drink that same amount of calories instead of eating it... Make a shake in 2 minutes, takes 30 seconds to drink and you can make them with whatever you want. I usually make mine about 600-700 calories with the only fat coming from the milk.

I always eat the whole egg.Originally Posted by soontobbeast
..lol... let the hippies eat whites only
03-02-2012, 02:13 PM
I've read before that the proteins in the yolk are super fragile,,, I add raw whites to my shakes,, blend it, ,, then add in the yolks I separated earlier,, barely fold them in then drink itOriginally Posted by soontobbeast

Or more simply put... If you had a larger meal, wait longer. If you had a small meal, you wouldn't have to wait as long.
And this is assuming the foods you've chosen are adequate and approrpaite (i.e, wouldn't be best to eat a pizza, wait an hour or two, then workout, ect..).

I always eat the yolks, not to much sat fat for the omega 3 ones. Also you could just eat the protein missing from the protein shake pre-wo later in the day. Same difference.

1800-2000 calories seems really low for someone your size, even on a cut.
Also, as far as the shakes listed above go I was doing something similar but adding in my 2-3 eggs raw and a little honey for some energy. Made for a great breakfast shake that could hold me over for a while.

yes, as already suggested earlier in here.....just supplement the eggs with a protein shake of some sort upon waking in the morning.....my sister was eating eggs for breakfast but mentioned she had no time for it anymore, but still wanted the protein. so of course I suggested just take in the protein powder instead of the eggs...simple and easy. she mixes it with skim milk to help with the taste...I prefer it "plain" (like my steroids LMFAO) in water. I just can't eat in the morning, no appetite. also as mentioned earlier there is protein in the yolks....but hey, on an 1,800 cal diet? every damn fat cal counts! so sometimes its better to do a whole egg with a few whites added in for additional protein and about half the cals! I just ate some hard boiled eggs matter of fact....good as hell with a little salt.

I do 1800-2400 (usually average 2,000 per day per week) but I'm 190 lbs.....a heavier guy could stand to throw in several hundred more cals....that is the beauty of being bigger, you get to eat (slightly) more calories than the medium sized guys when cutting!

I still think you would be a little better off eating closer to your maintenance calories.
I am sure you have seen it, but have you read about the leangains diet? I was losing a good 3-4lbs a week following it and I was taking in more calories than you were and building muscle at the same time.

your diet is ok, your protein is ok (there are worst, iso 100 is great).
the really problem w you is your preworkout formula, you are gettin sick " gastritis " never take your c4 first thing in the morning. You should did cardio first thing in the morning. c4 15-30 min before bkfst, get omeprazole first thing in the morning for 14 days (omeprazole, is going to help after 3rd day, make sure to finish all 14 pills.
