Adjusting macro ratio in sedentary job?
I have just started getting a bit busier work-wise and find myself stuck at home for long periods of time.
I would like some general advice on my diet to see what improvements I can make and increase my knowledge so that I can make more informed choices in the future.
Currently I am bulking, and have been doing so for 6 months or so. I am very pleased with my gains so far, I have moved up from 12st to 13st 7lbs but thankfully still wear the same trousers.
My current diet, a typical day looks like this:
530: 6 eggs scrambled on two pieces of toast
6am: bowl of oats or muesli - probably around 80-100g
9am: 100g Salmon/tuna/Chicken sandwich with medium-sized gren salad. Handful of pine nuts
1230: 150g Chicken with 100g pasta, small amount of salad and olive oil
1430: 8xOatcakes with peanut butter spread (around 20g of PB altogether), 2 bananas
20mins after training: 200ml skimmed milk, 40g whey protein, 3x Weetabix (I exclude this on non-training days)
1800: 200g Chicken/Turkey/Beef/etc with 100g pasta/rice/couscous
2100: 6-egg omelette, maybe a glass of milk too.
2200/2300-ish - Bed (depending on whether or not there are any interesting football threads in the General section)
I often snack on small amounts of walnuts/macademia/pine nuts aswell.
I have had some pretty decent results so far, but have found things slowing down a little, so any help is appreciated
EDIT: Got carried away there and forgot to include the questions I was supposed to ask!
I have a very inactive job, the only exercise I get is when I go to the gym. So I am basically a lazy bogger for 22.5 hours a day. Should I reduce my carbohydrate intake and increase protein/fats accordingly, even though I am trying to bulk up?
I am particularly interested in people who are in a similar situation to me - i.e. bulking and in very inactive jobs.
