supplements

i have been away from training for around 3.5 years now...........due to various reasons........but i'm now back and did my first training session today which was so hard........anyway i have trouble eating and keeping things down so i would like to use protien shakes as a staple of my diet..........is this wise?

    does it vary sometimes like some foods you can keep down at certain times other times you cant

    is it volumes of food you have difficulty in keeping down mate?

    very hard to advise unless you give me some more info here bud

    you can use it to make up the cals, but what kind of intake do you need to gain weight. What kind of diet are you going to run?

    have you tried consuming more cals later on in the evening than in the morning to avoid this issue

    when i don't train i don't eat properly so i haven't eaten properly in 3.5 years...........now that i'm gunna start training again i will be eating better............but i'm always on the go.........so getting time to make something will be a little tricky.............i will not need much to put weight on at the moment but in a couple of months when i get back into the swing of things then i would think i will need 3000-3500cals

    i did used to try eating more at nights than in the morning but i started to put on Bf that i found difficult to shift

    you were eating too much then at the wrong times

    why not try shifting your workouts to night time then eat the majority of your food then

    3-3500 cals aint much mate, i gain off that and i aint big

    as for timings, eat whenever and whatever you can, get in the protein, efa's and whatever else you need, dont worry about eating 5+ times a day if you cant hack it

    Well I guess you can have 'too much' milk - but what that is would vary.

    We need to address your issues mate. I guess you had a gastroscopy? What did this find?

    How do you find different consistancies of food and drink?

    Does water stay in ok?

    Can you manage a steak?

    What about all the different textures in between?
