20% protein on a bulk is what will brink reccomends...im getting in about 1 gram/lb of body weight. During my cut i was doing a NHE type diet, so im trying to get alot more carbs in me now, shock my body a little bit..
I eat at my college cafeteria, so i cant tell y'all exactly what im getting in terms of number of eggs...its a nice plate, i'd say about 5 eggs worth. i ate eggs 2-3 times a day for about 5 months so i have a good idea..
the yogurt is a cup i'd say.
i got the nutrition facts for the pasta/ chicken dish which i eat 2wice a day usually...
its 18 grams fat, 2.8 saturated. 27 grams protein. 57 carbs.
I don't understand how you could say this is not enough food for a cut even? Maybe i didn't post an accurate enough menu...here, i'll post two days out of my journal..
I'm not one to really tear apart your diet, I'm sure mine is much worse.
I will be a freshman this year as well. This is all the good stuff your school has to offer? I think when I go to school, my diet will probably improve because there is so much to choose from that is already prepared. Not the case for you?
maybe I got the wrong impression of your first post, but it seemed like you were asking for help since you were limited at school.
I'm @ wash u in st. louis. Actually was #1 for food 2 years back in the princeton review hah. This is the food that fits into my diet. They also hav a grill where i can get steak, shrimp, chicken made up fresh, but it gets kind of pricy....
the pasta bowls, fresh made hot sandwiches, and subway is the way i usually go..
we also have a burrito, quesadilla station...pizza...just not bbuilder friendly stuff...
if your trying to bulk you defentitly need more protein/calories, lol I'm eating more than you and I'm 5'8 and 120 pounds and I'm still not gaining weight, if I were you I'd be following a 40/40/20 split eating about 3000 calories (you'll probabaly need to eat more than that). Try and mix up your carbs/protein and protein/fats more evenly (take the amount of carbs, protein and fat you eat in a day and divide each by 7 and you'll know how much of each you should have at each meal) like when your eating your pesto chicken try eating a can of tuna on the side to have more protein cause your eating alot of carbs, and when you have the whole wheat and natural PB throw in some chicken or more tuna cause once again your eating to many carbs without a good amount of protein. And when your eating your muscle milk try throwing in some complexed carbs like rice, whole wheat bread, oatmeal etc.
Tom B, from the looks of things - we have very different bodytypes. Your an ecto, I'm an endo/meso. And at 120 pounds I'm pretty sure you'd grow on my diet, though i know that everyone's different....
a question for anyone who knows the answer - is there any data that shows more than 1 gram protein/ lb of bodyweight is beneficial when carbohydrates and fats are relatively high?
And keeping with all of your suggestions, i am going to add 1 scoop of whey to my breakfast, and 2 scoops of micellar cassein before bed...also, i'm going to start taking zma, cla, and V12 as soon as they arrive in the mail...
everyone keeps saying I'm an ecto but I'm not, if I ate junk food I'd be huge, I use to be oevrweight to the point where I had knee problem cause they couldn't support or at least thats what the doctor said.
Basically to keep it simple Eat X amount of calories using some sort of split (40/40/20 is good) and eat 1.5 x your weight in protein. if your still not gaining after that then keep increasing the calories by 200 or 300 every week untill you do.
