    I have been training for 3 years now. I just started eating right(7-8 meals a day) about 6 months ago. Eating right has made a big difference, as far as recovery and muscle gains. Also cutting out all that cold beer has helped a lot too!! LOL!!

    I was up to 243 this winter now around 215.

    I try not to eat too many carbs, I put on fat really easily. I just lost a lot of weight and definitly do not want to have to do that again!

    Do you have any suggestions? Am I eating the wrong foods?

    I had 2 large chicken/ lean beef soft tacos after this last workout and a protein shake before. I usually eat some type of protein every 3 hours.
