Weight gain diet for underweight 24 year old male
Hi guys. I'm 24 years old and coming off the back of an excessive exercise/restrictive eating background. I'm 6'1" and
at my lowest weight I was just over 56kg. That was about a month ago. Since then I've started training with a strength coach and following a strict diet that he "prescribed". The training is a 5 day HIT split: legs, shoulders/arms, back, core, chest. It usually consists of the main compounds done to absolute failure in 1-2 sets with added reps or weight each successive workout. I've been making consistent enough gain each week so far.
My main question is about the diet. I'm up 2.4kg in a month, now at 58.5kg. Most of it came on in the last 10-12 days however. I'm wondering if I'm overdoing the calories a bit:
05.40 100g ready brek, 30g whey isolate.
06.45. 100g porridge, 3 whole eggs
10.00. Soup (150g minced meat, mixed veg, 1/3 avocado)
13.00. 150g chicken, 100g brown rice, mixed salad( beetroot tomato, spinach), 1/3 avocado,
Green smoothie (kale, broccoli, celery, apple, cucumber, ginger)
16.00. Soup (same as above)
19.00. 180g salmon/steak, 400g sweet potato
Mushrooms, onion, garlic, peppers, spinach
Red smoothie (celery, carrot, apple, beetroot, ginger)
21.00. 250g fat free greek yoghurt, 20g walnuts, handful blueberries.
That's a typical day's eating. I'd really appreciate your thoughts. I'm kinda worried about excess fat gain.
Also, there's no cardio built in to the program. He doesn't even want me walking if I can avoid it.
