She tried to tell me that eating 3 meals a day is just as good as eating 6 meals a day as long as you dont have a health condition. She then when on to say that if your trying to bulk up you dont need that much more protein than the average person, and that its just something magizines endorse.

Anyway, anyone have any good ideas on how I can manage with a schools manditory meal plan? Most the food they have is always fried or cooked in some sauce, and it doesn't really help me out too much with trying to eat better.

Well, what she said was true.

Here are some foods you can buy yourself

oats
natural peanut butter
tuna
protein powder
eggs (if you have a refridgerator)
fish oil caps
olive oil
multi vitamin/mineral

whey protein powder and a shaker is definatly what you need. i take plastic bags with 4 scoop whey in each then when i want 1 just put a bag full in shaker and add water. to be HEALTHY as most dietitions i have spoken to say their is no need for alot of protein and some i have spoken to say to be healthy u need less than 1g of proetin per pound of bodyweight. however the majority on here that are trying increase their muscle mass not be the skiny perfect simble of health walking down the street lie to aim for atleast 1g or protein per pound of bodyweight.

Quite true. Rare in a human's life is the ability to squat 400 or bench 250 needed to live long enough to propegate many times.

But damn it feels good to strive for.

A Dietician will tell you pretty much the opposite of what we live by here, unless they are "in the game" as well.

She tried to tell me that eating 3 meals a day is just as good as eating 6 meals a day as long as you dont have a health condition.:windup: Uh...she's a little behind in the times. My teacher who's also an RD would tell her otherwise...since we're learning about nutrition updated to the year *gasp*...2005! Human beings weren't meant to eat 3 times a day. In fact, most of the meals we're learning to plan out are at least 5 in a day.There have been an assload of scientific journals/studies showing how more protein can benefit a weightlifter/bodybuilder. Everybody is different, but your body will use just as much protein as it needs, nothing more. Someone who is trying to build muscle mass won't be consuming the same food as a sedentary individual. That's a bunch of garbage. From talking to different people, I've found nutritionists seem to be a lot more informed than RD's.

Should have asked where she graduated from and with what type of degree.



I bet she has a dipolma in computer network admin and when the IT industry fell apart she took what she could find (explains why I work at paint store).

I've talked to health professionals that have said as much.

How much protein are in each one of those scoops? If it's the average 20g, then you are taking 80g at one time!

Depends on the weight of the chicken breast.

keep in mind that dieticians and nutritionists also don't think that you should eat anywhere near the amount of meant a bodybuilder eats....

If you compare to what is healthy for a normal human being , ie around 2k calories, then anything above and beyond that is viewed as dangerous in the long run.

As an athlete in any shape or form, you need more calories than the average person...no athlete wants to be average, so why would you only eat average calories????

Skin specialist say the same thing...have happy glowing skin, less wrinkles etc...eat only fish...vergies and whole grains etc....

i guess time will tell as to how well we age
