Experienced trainer reassessing diet - can you help?
I've been training / eating like this for 4 years now and have seen good results (165-175 to about 215lb, mostly in the first 18 months after which things slowed). I thought I would run this by everyone here in order to see if I can improve it at all. Any input is much appreciated. Below is the basic outline, I put rough meal times in along with other info. My goals are basically lean mass and health (I don't believe in spiking insulin at any time and therefore don't do this with the post workout shake, which is just like any other meal other than composed of protein powder). Any comments would be appreciated (e.g. enough healthy fats for my weight?).
M1-6 are typically 18g fat, 50-70g carbs depending on cut or bulk, 50g protein, last meal is about 22g fat 25g carbs 60g protein.
Supps: Multi-vitamins, Vit C, Vit E, Glucosamine, MSM.
Tomatoes, Red Pepper, Apple, Chicken/Turkey, Optimum Oil (H&B) / Udo's Oil, Oats.
Occasionally substitute in some eggs for chicken/turkey.
5% fat lean beef, tomatoes, kidney beans, onions, chilli peppers (cooked as chilli)
brown basmati rice / sweet potato
broccoli + cauliflower
Optimum Oil (H&B)
Chicken/Turkey, Sweet Potato, Broccoli + Cauliflower,Optimum Oil (H&B)
Train 7-8:30 (4 day split)
M5 8:30 (PWO mostly whey, on off days mostly casein).
Mixture of whey/micellar casein, oats, walnuts, fish oil caps.
Oats, Micellar Casein, Optimum Oil
How does this sound? Originally I set out to try and make it the best I could but haven't reassessed in quite a while.
