Critique My Breakfast
I'm currently running Test E @ 300 mg/wk + 40 mg Var ED. My diet is an attempt to add a little quality weight. For now I'm breaking it down one meal at a time.
1/2 Cup Oats
Handful of chopped apricots
Handful of Huckleberries
Handful of cranberries
Handful of raisins
1/4 cup soy milk
5 eggs; 2 yolks, 3 whites.
(bland as hell...need to spice it up some)
2 TBS yogurt
1/2 cup OJ
TSP Flax Seeds
3 chunks frozen mango
Any thoughts and comments are welcome.
Outside of the smoothie and its good fats, this breakfast is pro-carb, so should I save the smoothie for later as a pro-fat snack/meal?
Where do dried fruits fall? They contain a lot of sugar, so do they belong in pro-carb or pro-fat meals?
What about the soy milk and yogurt? Pro-fat?
Thanks for your help.

that makes me hungry just reading it. (currently cutting) Do you drink a protein shake? If not i would try and add up all the protein grams to make sure your getting enough for breakfast. If the rest of your diet is good then i don't think the smoothie will hurt you, you are infact on a cycle right now so you gotta eat bro!!! what does the rest of your diet look like?

Drop the milk the egg yolks and the OJ. Milk sugars will only make you soft, the egg yolks mixed with the oats is combining fats and carbs, the OJ is carbs mixed with your fats in the smoothie.

awesome...thanks for the tips, sooners04.
Copenhagen, the rest of my diet is similar, I need to get more religious with regards to separating fats/carbs, but on the whole it is good quality food. Lean meats, low fat/sugars, no junk food, shoot for almost all complex carbs.
I know that I am supposed to separate carbs/fats, but can someone explain to me WHY? Is it just that our bodies struggle to use both for energy at one time and the excess turns to body fat?

Any time you consume a large amount of carbohydrates, insulin is released from the pancreas in order to transport glucose into the muscle and fat cells (especially the muscle cells). Unfortunately, in the presence of insulin, dietary fat is more likely to be stored as fat on your body and less likely burned for energy as compared to when insulin levels are low. That is, for each level of glucose and fats in the blood, more insulin has to be released to transport them into the muscle cells. So when you consume a meal high in fat at this time, the carbohydrates that are in the blood are likely to be shuttled into the fat cells and not into the muscle cells.

I'd say 2 hours should be sufficient.
