Should your training day have more calories than a non training day? It makes sense...

Here's what i'm doing now everyday:

7:00/Oatmeal, 3 Eggs

9:30/2 String Cheese

12:30/Chicken (In the summer, it'll be Rice and veggies + Chicken)

2:30/String Cheese

3:30/Chicken, Veggies, and Rice (?)

4:40/Lift

5:40/Whey + Water

6:00/Work

8:00/2 String Cheese

10:00/Whey + Milk

I do that everyday..

Should I change it up so on a non training day, I cut the oatmeal out after school, and get rid of the rice for lunch? Or should I add a few foods on training days?



Thx

Are you hungry on your training days? I know my body tells me when I'm deficient and what I'm deficient in (I can tell if it's screaming CARBS! or FAT! or PROTIEN!).

I personally listen very closely when my body tells me to eat and I obey. It's worked OK so far for me, but I have a big calorie store (fat) to work with :eek:

*** Actually some people find that eating the same thing allows them to stay more focused. It's different for everyone.:)

Variety matters?

Well, when i'm at school I have to eat something small.. Someone told me I should eat at least some protein every 2-3 hours, so that's why I eat the VERY small meals at school and work...

How would you change it?

What do you think of this?

Get-Big Meal Plan for Non-Workout Days

Meal 1
• 2 whole eggs
• 1 cup skim milk
• 2 cups cooked oatmeal (prepare with water only or skim milk from above and add cinnamon or other spice)
• 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil (mix in with the oatmeal)
• 1/4 cup raisins

Meal 2
• 3 ounces chicken breast (cooked weight)
• 2 cups salad with dark, leafy green vegetables, onions, peppers, etc.
• 1 tablespoon olive oil and vinegar, to taste
• 1/8 cup shredded cheese in salad
• 1/4 cup wheat germ or Grape Nuts, added to salad
• 1 apple
• 1 banana
• 1 orange

Meal 3
• 3 ounces tuna (cooked weight)
• 1 sweet potato (baked)
• 2 cups stir-fry vegetables (broccoli, peppers, onions, etc.), using olive oil to cook them
• 1 ounce almonds or peanuts (may be added to stir-fry)
• 1 cup blueberries or strawberries
• 2 cups orange juice with pulp

Meal 4—Quick-fix shake
• 1 scoop whey protein (or two scoops Grow!)
• 1 cup skim milk
• 4-8 ounces grape juice
• 1 cup frozen berries
• 4 prunes (seedless or pitted)
• 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
• 1 tablespoon extra-light olive oil
• Add water and ice, and blend to desired consistency

Meal 5—Quick-fix shake
• 1 scoop whey protein (or two scoops Grow!)
• 1 cup skim milk
• 1 tablespoon extra-light olive oil
• 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
• 1-2 bananas
• 1 cup crushed pineapple (in natural juices)
• 1 tablespoon instant vanilla pudding mix
• Add water and ice, and blend to desired consistency

Meal 6
• 2 cups plain yogurt
• 1 cup raisins
• 2 ounces mixed nuts
• 1 cup berries
• 1 sliced banana
• Mix above ingredients together

I was thinking of trying it--since it's so detailed.. But, majority of the day i'm at school or work and I can't take that much food.. (They get mad if they see me with any).

I'm trying to lose BF, now, ASAP..

Is that diet still good, or cut some carbs?

Your never going to lose BF on that, you don't have that much protein in it, and I see quite a bit of fat, and lots and lots of carbs. You have 3 pieces of fruit in one single meal, thats at minimum 75g of carbs and about 300cals, I dieting and I don't let myself eat more than 2 pieces throughout the entire day because of the sugar. Try some veggies.

Ooops, sorry about that, I just read the last few posts that I hadn't read yet and forgot you had posted your diet along with a comparison of another. I'd use yours over the T-mag one, if I were using that diet I would replace the some of the jerky with a different source of protein, but I'm sure it'll work.
