730 am-2 tsp of cpoconut oil
10 am- shake- 50 grams protein
12- lean beef or chicken plus veggies
2-nuts and fruit
Possible additional piece of fruit here, depending on my day at work
around 4-5 workout
Post workout feast
I have a few reasons for doing it this way. When I previously did CBL I lost a lot of weight fast and it really affected my lifts. I am looking to maintain my weight right now and slowly work on my body fat levels while staying at the same weight. I have ground beef for lunch on my workout days to get in more fat and calories. Chicken on off days to keep some variety.
I found that previously I would get really fatigued about half way through my workouts previously, I felt like I was running on empty. So I can have some additional quick calories before my workout. Not sure when I will start this, I am just really throwing out ideas right now.
I like this idea. I would like to give this a try at some point during my off season.
