Few questions.

I work on a ship for 5 weeks at a time and I am trying to nail my diet as much as I can down on here, it isnt going to be perfect but if i can tweak it optimumly, I dont eat desserts, take sugar etc

I have to eat what is cooked but I have access to fruit, wholemeal bread and cereals, I dont have a blender. I do have a big tub of protein.

I'm on the midnight to midday shift and train after my shift, about 1330-1400.

I'm bulking at the mo'

2330 Up
Generally try and eat whatever lean meat there is with some rice and veg.

0300 Shake with 1.5 or 3.5% milk and a yogurt piece of fruit

0530 Breakfast, generally scramble egg (non egg white), some (4) bits of wholewheat toast (there is on offer: Baked beans, white sticky rice, bacon, other s**** which I dont eat)

0900 Shake with 1.5 or 3.5% milk and a yogurt piece of fruit

1200 Lunch again whatever meat there is with some rice, salad, veg, fruit for dessert.

1400 Train:

1500: PWO Shake with yog, banana etc.

1530-1600 Bed

    Been reading through the other threads: seems like i should be changing the yogurt with the shakes to weetabix. Complex carbs Vs. Simple ones.....

    Seen a few posts regarding taking 50g protein PWO. ANyone got any suggestions re which Whey has the highest Protein amount? The one im using atm is 20 per serving, i know i could just put more in but then I'll need to take two tubs offshore with me, so it would be better to get a higher protein % amount.

    :D

    Its tough you know :P

    My GF picked up some from the States when she was there: GNC Own brand. I usually have EAS but they didnt have it when I was there.

    As you can imagine, lugging 2 tubs isnt going to be a lot of fun. I'll do it if needs be but I'll have to not take any clothes! ;)

    Never used GNC but as long as the protein % content is 80+ then don't worry about it, don't think you'll find much higher.

    If its that much of an issue you could try a whey isolate. They are usually standardised to about 93% protein. Bulk suppliers stock it.

    If your away for 5 weeks at a time then I doubt you'll really need two tubs. If your doing a 4 day split and have 50g PWO then thats 200g per week and 1Kg for every 5 weeks your away which is about equivalent to a single small tub.

    You should also certainly drop the yoghurt PWO. Your PWO shake should generally be "fast acting" so whey and a carb source such as weetabix/dextrose/maltodextrin or oats are popular. No need for any fruit.

    So this will be ok for the shakes during the day as well? Im using 2 a day at the mo, 3 on training days. Hence the question regarding 2 tubs....

    Any recommendations regarding brands/flavours?

    Noted about the PWO etc :)

    Cheers.
