Default Eating for PR's

Though it will be weeks before my PR's are threatened, I am going to seek some advice now before the time comes on diet.
Right now my diet is:

Breakfast:
50g oatmeal
tea/coffee

Mid Morning:
130g tuna
brown bread roll and butter
cheese

I then make a shake with 3 scoops of ON whey protein, milk, some peanut butter, yoghurt and banana. I drink it in 2/3 different times of the day. Pre workout and post workout or else just during the day, usually after lunch.

4 eggs (2 yolks) and tomato chunks in omlette

dinner;
chicken/tuna/beef: 150g
rice/potatoes/pasta: 100g of rice and pasta. probably 300g of potato.

Before bed:
100g cottage cheese and remains of shake

The weekends will have alterations where I may have pancakes instead of oatmeal and occasional junk food like chocolate, pizza, doritos etc.

What alterations should I make as PR's approach? I know I need to eat more anyway!

Oh I also take 2grams of vitamin C and a multivitamin a day.

Typically before I go after a PR, the days leading up to it I will carb load. It varies week to week because Im a trainer and constantly busy. But in an ideal setting:

Day1-3
up my carb intake 75-100grams a day.

Day 4 (PR day)
morning
2 packets of oatmeal
toast (2 slice w/jam)
eggs 2
pan sausage 2

30mins before PR attempt another packet of oatmeal (dry w/bottle water)

This is what usually works for me in ideal settings. Hope this helps!

If I am going to have a real big, taxing session I like to take a day to eat everything under the sun, and then on second day take cut back but still eat above maintenance. Day 3 would be the training day.

I do this because I don't want to feel like a bloated pig by eating too big the day before a hard workout.

If you are not sure how your body will react (personal experience, not whats on the web), I wouldn't change much when going for a training-PR. Possibly a little more sodium, but thats about it. More food or less food, more proteins, fats, or carbs can really change how you feel/perform mentally and physically and even if it may only take 1-5lbs off (or 10-20) a failed attempt is a failed attempt.

If your set on attempting a PR (and making it), don't change a thing. But if you want to find out how the changes effect you personally and are willing to risk a possible failed attempt, experiment - cut this, add that, or maintain.

I say this because only because eating big can leave me bloated for days. When I'm feeling bloated, I often don't perform well. On the other hand many other benefit from the bloat or an extra amount of calories/macros. Me personally, eating normal on the days leading up to the attempt and eating 1-2 light meals before the attempt works best for me.

I don't really have anything to contribute, but I was looking at your sample diet, and got to wondering...where's your protein at breakfast? I like the cottage cheese before bed. A little tip too. Try a spoonful of peanut butter mixed in with that. Awesome taste sensation.

Anyway, good luck to you!

It would be easy enough to get some protein if he takes the oatmeal with a good amount of milk. I do that occasionally, get in some protein, and the oatmeal with milk tastes better too (for me at least).

Yeah I take oatmeal with milk and raisins. Can't eat a great deal in mornings because of my medical condition. I expel enormous amounts of mucus throughout the day but morning is worst. If I eat a big breakfast, I often get sick afterwards. I could try protein powder in the oats I guess but that's it. EVen eggs in the morning can cause me to react badly but they are good in the afternoon.

Trying to calculate (by rummaging through the kitchen for exact readings) and I think between 200-230g protein and 2300-2500 calories. Protein seems pretty good, not sure about the calories.

Protein levels are fine, once you're in PR territory I'd bump up the calories to 2800-3000 mainly from fat/carbs.

A good amount of fat is beneficial in the diet, so your body can maintain high levels of testosterone.
