I need some help constructing a good diet that will fit my goals and life. Let me start by saying I have a job that sometimes, ok almost 75% of the time, leads me to skip lunch because of deadlines and such. I need solutions that I can pre-make, hopefully on the weekends and package up so I can keep food on me durning my work day.
My goal is to gain as much muscle mass as possible. I've been back in the gym for 6 months now, gained about 18lbs, lost two pant sizes and feel great. That said, I'm still chubby with a bf of 19-20%. I'm 6'2" and weigh about 255 lbs and I'm 32 years old.
I took about 2yrs off the gym because something had to give. I went back to school to get my BS while moving forward with a demanding career. Guess what I dropped to make time for school? No more working out and fast food became a part of my world. It was a big mistake because I put on 45lbs or so and lost a ton of muscle. Not to mention the mental strain of the job, school and being out of shape.
When I was in good shape I was in the gym (4) days a week and weighed about 200lbs with a bf of 10-12%. That was my story for years (it also helped to have a close friend that's a great personal trainer). Now my goals are different though, I really don't care too much about my bf and certainly don't want to weigh 200lbs. I want to bulk up as big as possible, it would be awesome to weigh 275lbs with a bf of 15%.
Once I hit my natural limits, I plan to run a cycle. That said, I want to get my diet right first and if that also means cutting some bf, so be it. But overall I'm just looking to gain muscle mass.
