    it's ok but you need more variety

    dont always have tuna, there are other good, cheap protein sources.. other tinned fish, turkey mince etc

    use rice, wholemeal bread, oats, pasta, sweet potato, weetabix

    you need more variety in veg too, not always spinach

    Turkey mince is cheap? Might have a look into that.
     
    Thanks for your post however why do i need variety when surely greens are green, carbs are carbs and protein is protein?

    Just had a look at the Turkey mince, looks good to me. Do have one question; with nutritional values it says its 18g per 100g, does that mean if i weigh it out and use it I can say i've had 18g of protein or is it less than that once cooked?

    yeah it's quite cheap at asda 450g is £1.70

    different vegetables contain different vitamins and minerals, and differing amounts of fibre

    different protein sources have different aminos combinations and have differing levels of bioavailability

    different carb sources have different structures, gi levels, fibre levels etc

    variety is essential to a good diet.

    it will loose weight when cooked because of water loss but 100g cooked will have about 27g protein per 100g

    On the adsa site it says its 18g per 100g So I should weigh the meat to how i eat it? Ie, tuna raw, chicken cooked to get more accurate nutritional information?

    you dont need to weigh your food every time, especially when bulking. just make sure you have decent sized portions

    but yes things like chicken and turkey use the nutritional info once cooked
