Hey guys. I'm gonna have to do changes in my schedule because of work obligations, and I can't train in the morning as I used to so it has to be in the evening. If I eat right after I come from work, at around 17:00 I'll do my training at 19:00. So my post workout meal, which will be at around 20:30, will also be my last meal for the day. My question is: Will this have some negative effect, to only have one big meal after hard training session (I'm following a gymnastics program)? I want to gain some more muscles and bring my weight at around 75kg (I'm 71 right now with 176cm) and was wandering if I still eat the right amount of calories and proteins, but with most of that before the training session for the day and with only one meal after, will I be able to reach my goal?
I was browsing the internet for some grocery list/meal plans just to get a few ideas and variations of the basic chicken/meat and vegetables I've been eating everyday for awhile. I'm interested in the specific plans because I'm at school/work all day and so I need to plan out my meals pretty far in advance and then pack it all before hand, and I was looking for some structure that would make this easier to do. I came across this plan http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/the-100-dollar-diet-healthy-grocery-list.html and I'm thinking I'll try it for a couple weeks and see how this more structured approach goes. It seems pretty straightforward and easy, and it'd make sure to give me enough food for the day (although only 4 pounds of chicken per week is way less than the typical 10 lbs I've been getting...). Normally I wouldn't eat the oats or peanut butter but I'm not worried about it because I have a super fast metabolism and am looking to slow it down so I can gain weight anyways. I'd also exchange the breakfasts for the Poliquin meat/nut breakfast and get some variations for the eggs so that I'm not eating 6 everyday. What do you guys think?
