  • New offseason diet-Where can I add more calories?

    Trying to add weight for about 6 months, and learned my lesson last year- Eating a buffet 4 times a week just makes me fat. Now I have a new job where I'm on my feet, so I'm burning calories like crazy and I need to have "quick" meals for between clients.

    So take a look, tell me where I can add things.

    Wake up- 8 oz ground beef, shredded potatoes in olive oil, vegetables
    Pre W/O- 50 g whey, oatmeal bar, fruit (bout 60 g worth of carbs here)
    During workout- MG blend w/BCAA's
    Post Workout- MG blend W/BCAA's
    1 hr post W/O- 50 g whey, 6 inch chicken breast sub
    3.5 hr later- 50 g whey, 6 inch chicken breast sub
    before bed- 30 g casein shake, 1.5 tbs natural pb

    Yes, I KNOW it's a lot of protein powder, but I gotta eat fast, and don't have TOO much time to cook nowadays with the new job.

    So protein macros are at-

    Meal 1- 50
    Meal 2- 50
    W/O-20 + BCAA's
    Meal 3- 75
    Meal 4- 75
    Meal 5- 30

    EDIT: I'm hovering around 190-195 at 12% or abouts.

      Cook several lbs of beef once a week and you can easily increase the amount you can conveniently eat while saving time.

      I would bump up 2-4 oz at breakfast and try to include some at that pre-bed meal too.

      I've noticed that relying on shakes as a meal usually doesn't work when I'm trying to gain weight. They're more use as a vehicle for my OO it seems like. Whole food always works best, the more you can squeeze in anywhere the better off you will be IMO

        I would definitely eat more meat and less powder.

          I'll just tell you after relying on shakes during dieting, there is no way I'll ever want to have a shake when i start to bulk up again. I hate them so much.

            Add either olive oil or some sort of carbs to the shakes. This will probably do it. 4 tbsp of olive oil, while gross as hell, is an extra 500 calories.

                Really you could put 10W30 in there and it'd taste better than olive oil.

                  Honestly, the evoo is not that bad for me, but I do prefer the other choices over it. However, if $$$ is an issue, the evoo is more economical:hungry:

                    I don't really notice the EVOO too much... I also down my shakes really fast though.

                      I splurge on my fatty acids. I use Udo's 3-6-9 blend and Carlson's orange flavored fish oil, which actually tastes pretty good, as does the Udo's. I even take tablespoons of each of these oils on their own or use them as dressings. IMO, worth the $.

                      Darkguitars, why not try to add in some more vegetables and up the fiber content of your diet? Also, chili is a good one bowl meal that you can prepare a lot of at one time and eat on the run. You can add/subtract ingredients to make it meet your macros too.

                        Since we're on the topic of oils, coconut oil is great.

                          How about some ziploc bags full of pecans? LOADED with fats and easy to stick in your pocket and grab them and snack on them even when you don't have time to take in anything other than just a shake?

                            Do you add this to shakes? How?

                            I actually enjoy the taste of the evoo. Seems to make the shakes taste richer. Not so good as a shooter tho

                            You can buy trail mix in many varieties dirt cheap and walmart. Or make your own. You can pack in a lotta cals cheaply
