What does your current diet consist of? Honestly, and I really hate to say this but.....sometimes those arbitrary numbers (..this x that + body weight divided by the moon's lunar distance = % of net gains) really don't amount to much. Just eat! Protein, in and of itself, is NOT the only thing responsible for bodily development. Let's hope that it doesn't take you the better part of a year to figure this out.

lol nice jab

I'll always be a nutrition nerd, but I think I'll keep it more to myself from now on. This forum is great for preventing stupid goals (like I realized I've had for a couple months), giving motivation, and helping with workouts & form and I'm grateful for all of it

Simple thus is pretty much what I eat daily, trying to lose fat but maintain the muscle and strength I have.

Lunch
Turkey wrap, 4 slices of turkey 2 slices of cheese, pickles, mustard
Fruit, usually two bananas
A powerbar

Snack
More fruit or a powerbar (I just like powerbars)

Dinner
.5-.75 lbs of chicken cooked in 1-2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and BBQ sauce
Bag of microwave vegetables (green beans, corn, or broccoli)

Snack
2 chocolate rice cakes with peanut butter, maybe more fruit

It was just a friendly jab. LOL!

Spend that extra $35 on another 12 lbs. of chicken and some yams. Your problem is the lack of overall calories consumed. You can eat more than what you're eating and still minimize fat gain. You're not eating until mid-day???

I'd swap the bananas for some kind of berries.

To be honest I am happy with the results I am seeing, just figured I'd give a post workout shake a try. And yeah I usually don't eat until lunch, I've never been a breakfast person, most days I'll have both a pre and post lunch snack though.

Currently my energy levels are good and I'm not starving myself.

If you're happy with your results and the progress that you're making, why add a PWO shake?

I eat the bananas because I like them and for the potassium, I've had issues with potassium and cramping since high school and the bananas help.

I usually switch up the fruit I eat though, right now it's bananas and peaches.

possibly better results for a relatively low cost per serving. Worth a try if he's never done it.

Just experimenting. I've worked out on and off for years but never took any supplements, figured I'd see how they work.

If I don't like the results I'm out only $35.

I'd write a book on my reasoning a la dabears but I can't type that fast

I think you'd only see more results & benefits from adding more protein to your diet, especially post workout

Theoretically yes (..and again, protein isn't the only important component to a PWO meal; carbs and sugars are pretty important too), but...............



.....theory and actual practice/results aren't always aligned. Let's see how it goes for him.

not arguing that, I think adding sugar is essential actually

only disadvantage would probably end up being the accompanying protein farts

Oh and just glancing at your diet, I'd switch out or at least add some real carbs in place of the powerbars
