meal 4. protein shake
meal 5. chicken ***, 1 cup steamed broccoli, 1 cup steamed brown rice
meal 6. protein shake
this is a sample i got off of the website just wondering if this is good to trim fat and gain muscle
i am really trying to lose my stomach but this seems like alot of food. any suggestions
Meal 1 Looks good
Meal 2 Is that a big enough protein portion for you?
Meal 3 Heavy on the protein here with both cottage cheese and tuna
Meal 5 Looks good
Meal 6 Fine probably, but some think that a slower digesting protein might be better here.
You have fruit three times, can you replace one of them with a veggie so that you have two portions a day?
Also when is your workout? If in the morning, see if you can shift a protein shake to after the workout. If you workout in the evening, then the protein shake listed as your meal six might just be fine.
i work swing shifts so illl either work out at 10am or 3pm. meal 2. do you think i should include a shake? im just trying to figure out what to eat and when to eat it.
9am wake up 5 egg whites and fruit.
10 am workout
11 am protein shake
1pm 2 boiled eggs and a shake
4pm. cottage cheese and broccoli
7 pm chicken, 1 cup rice, broccoli
9pm shake or slower digesive protein
Ok now your 1pm meal is protein heavy, I don't know what specific protein shake you are using, check to see if there are enough carbs for ya there. Here's what mine might look like on your schedule.
9am wake up 5 egg whites and fresh fruit (apple, orange, or mixed berries)
11 am Protein shake
1 pm 2 (or more) boiled eggs I allow myself 1 yolk for every 4 eggs and 1 portion Whole Wheat toast
4 pm cottage cheese and broccoli ( you can add a carb here like a small sweet potato.)
7 pm chicken, 1 portion brown rice, brocolli
9 pm Shake or cottage cheese+yogurt
