Posting my current diet for future reference:
7:00AM BREAKFAST - 3 slices uncured bacon + 3 large eggs (cooked in bacon grease w/butter) + coffee with flavored creamer.
12:00PM LUNCH - Sandwich: 2 slices Roman Meal Whole Wheat bread, 2 slices cheese, 4 slices ham, 4 slices turkey, mayo, mustard + water.
4:00PM SNACK1 - Snickers Bar + water + vitamins.
5:00PM Workout (Iron supplement?)
6:00PM SNACK2 - Pint of Raw milk + 4 cookies.
7:00PM DINNER - 4 oz beef and/or chicken (occasionally sushi) + handful of Sun Chips with Salsa or Guacamole.
9:00PM SNACK3 - 2 tbsp "white chocolate wonderful" peanut butter + water.
...(If I skip anything, it's this. Also, PB acts like a sleep aid for me when eaten an hour prior to bed).
This works out to 2200-2300 kcals/day (less if I skip the PB)
Macros are: PRO 147g (25.9%) CHO 150g (26.5%) FAT 120g (47.6%)
Fat is high intentionally.
PRO is about 1g/lb of LBM. When I need more protein, I will just add whey to the drinks.
CHO seems adequate for energy so far and is mostly clustered around the workout.
My weight is steady after 2 weeks of this so far...For me, consistent eating is more important than exactly what I eat. I tend to undereat when training.
