Could someone please look at my diet? Thanks
I was browsing these forums a couple of months ago but have had loads of PC problems since...
The protein shakes I have are WPI 80 which I mix with water and don't add any flavouring to.
8am 40g of protien from a shake. 1 orange.
10am 30g protein from a shake. 2 riveta. Either a bannana or an orange.
12:30pm Tuna sandwich. 135g of tuna, 2 slices wholemeal, sometimes with a small amount of light mayo, sometimes without. 50g of lean chicken breast. 40g protein.
3pm 30g protein from a shake. 2 riveta. Either a bannana or an orange.
5:30pm 40g protein from a shake
Weights for an hour
6:30pm 40g protein from a shake
7:30pm 50g brown rice, 135g tuna, 50g chicken. 40g protien.
10pm 30g protein from a shake.
I drink only water. I'm looking to lose fat and gain muscle. At the moment I'm 210lbs though I should really be 190lbs. Ideally I'd like to end up at 230lbs.
I can stick to this diet without a problem though I'm concerened that since starting it I don't have the same amount of energy when lifting. Does this mean I'm not eating enough carbs pre workout? Would it be a good idea to substitue lunch for a 40g shake and have a large ish meal at arounf 3pm? Say 80g brown rice or pasta with a couple of tins of tuna? This would be my main mean and my evening meal would be much reduced. I feel this would give me more energy but you guys are the experts.
I am also unsure if 270g protien per day is enough. Also, I don't do any cardio - should I?
All help is greatly appreciated.
