For Those Who Weigh 225lb and Up
I'm currently @ 235lb and I find it VERY difficult to keep my protein intake high enough (around 1.5g per lb bodyweight) on a daily basis.
That's def one of the downsides to bein on the upper weight scale - I want to eventually hit @ 260-270 lb but it's def hard gainin the mass...
I wanted to hear some of your guys tips on gettin enough protein in when you weigh up there @ 250lb...
Do you guys do it with a lot of protein bars and shakes or mostly whole food? I do a mixture of both - try to do more whole when I can but it's tough...

i'm 270+ so thats 540 grams a day. I just pretty much eat non stop, 10 small meals a day, some shakes thrown in etc..

Last spring I did a cycle...
Decca 300 - wks 1-10
T 400 - wks 1-10
Winny - ED 50mg - 20 days (something happened with 2nd bottle - dont ask)
Of course post therapy too was done
I was originally @ 223 - Blew up @ 245 - back down to @ 235 now.... kept some
Right now I can't do it because of my job but I'd like to again in the future as soon as I am able to again - prob not till either summer or next fall
I could show you typical day eating if that helps

food is better, but 500+ grams of protein isn't feasible.

I'm at 223 now... and eating my 4th chicken breast today (plus 2 cans of tuna, 3 shakes, a few protein bars, 2 gallons of water...) getting close to my 400g needed. Ugh...
I feel like Mister Creosote
Garçon! The bucket!

three shakes, one post workout and the other two spread in the day. I usually have a detour bar or something for a quick snack as well.

So we are all pretty much on the same page as far as diets...
Maybe I need to relook at my Carb intake then...
I was once a pretty fat kid so I don't want to overdo the carbs...

Get meal replacements, not just protien shakes, Just keep throwin them in all the time, every 2 hours 55grms of protien...

You know... I used to enjoy eating
10-28-2003, 04:01 PM #12
I usually get lazy and have 4 meals shakes/brown rice and 4 meals solid protein

yes it is very hard to do this when you are a lil bigger, I eat at 7:30 dozen egg whites, then have a shake at 10:00, eat again at 12:30 chicken, cottage cheese, tuna and skim milk and some form of pre training complex carb, shake again at 3:00, eat again at 6:00 beef or chicken, cottage cheese, yams, top it off with a can of tuna right before I go to bed. That is as close to 500 gms of protein I am going to get due to my schedule. the basics of this is try and get some protein every 2-3 hrs usually at about 50-60 gms a pop.
Whatcha gonna do brother.........

Ain't that the truth . . .
bfst-- 2 cans tuna & a quart of pasta
post wo - quart of milk & 50 gms prot. powder
1st lunch - half lb of steak & rice
2nd lunch - tub of cottage cheese with pineapple, and more rice
dinner - half lb steak and pasta
1st nighttime snack -- can of lowfat chili
2nd nighttime snack -- protein shake
Seems like eating is a part-time job. More concerned with just shovelling the stuff down the gullet than eating . . .
