headaches

so i started my first day of training yesterday aswell as a new high in protein diet and this morning i woke with a huge headache that hasn't shifted all day.

I was just wondering whether too much protein can cause headaches?

    Bulking.

    I'm also feeling a bit sick but that could be to do with the fact that my stomach is not used to having as much food as im putting down it at the moment.

    Just a couple of comments on your diet mate.

    8am: Replace OJ with real fruit if possible.

    4pm: Have some lean meats with carbs here.

    7pm: Have whey protein with carbs here.

    9pm: Replace this with the pasta,tuna,peas 1/2 pint of milk.

    11:30pm: Have some oily fish with cottage cheese here, or cottage with flax oil.

    Also I can't see no veg in there.

    Very low in EFAs aswell.

    that diet isnt up to scratch mate, if you were ona bulk theres loads of incomplete meals there with no trace of healthy fats what so ever. If on a cut then too much carbs and not ebough protein in certain meals. What are your goals and your stats, lets see if we can help clean this diet up a bit

    Where's the protein at 11:30? You need to go 8 hours or so in bed - get some protein and fats in you!

    I realise that may seem a little lightweight but i thought i'd start of slow as my stomach isn't used to 7 meals a day.

    I'm 6'0 and 161 lbs. Basically very skinny but with a bit of a beer gut so im looking to cut that and bulk everywhere else.

    Another thing, my limited muscles have been aching quite a bit since my first work-out. Is this normal?

    mate you cant cut fat and bulk at the same time, chase 1 rabbit not 2. Do you want to lose the gut or pack on some muscle and some more fat as this is what bulking is about. As for meals 3 baked jacket spuds is lots mate even i cant eat that and i pack away 6-7 meals a day without any hassle. Reduce portion sizes and use foods that are calorie dense as well and this will help if you truly want to bulk

    Yes your muscles will ache.

    ok have you taken a peek at the Mass Gaining V2 article to see if you can handle those kindve portion sizes first? That will be your typical size meal, or i can help you find calorie dense foods to make it easier for you

    Have 5 then. That's enough if that's all you can manage.

    161lb = 240g protein a day, give or take. It's 1.5-2g of protein per 1lb of lean weight. Call it 250g. 5 meals of 50g and you're onto a winner.

    Do static stretching to cool your muscles down.

    As for cutting the fat from your stomach and bulking muscles up, it's not that clear-cut. You're either cutting (in calorie deficit) to lose bodyfat or bulking (calorie surplus) to promote muscle growth. Newbies to working out can cut whilst gaining significant muscle though. Perhaps having eating troubles with too much food would mean you'd be better off cutting? You can lose the gut whilst gaining some muscle and won't feel sick.

    I've checked that out and that was the diet i was aiming to start on. But i'm really quite clueless as to which foods are calorie dense etc

    I was hoping that the 100 sit ups im doing before bed every night would sort the stomach out but maybe it's not as easy as i was hoping for.

    So you're saying that if i go with the calorie increase my stomach will get bigger and bigger?

    Typically fats are going to be calorie dense as they have 9 calories per gram of fats.
