nutrition questions, AMA
I'm taking up on this offer if it's still on the table.
So uhh, I don't have a lot of money right now and the gyms are kinda expensive here so I can't eat like salmon every day but I guess I can get my protein from eggs, dairy, bacon, tuna and stuff like that. What else should I know? I'm around 70 kg right now (1.82 m tall) with little muscle mass so I want to bulk up. I'm eating a lunch at uni on weekdays that is loaded with carbs and should be around ~1000 kcal if I get a full plate of food, full plate of salad and a few slices of bread. I'm usually eating oatmeal and a banana in the morning but I guess I could throw something more in there.
Also, what kind of protein powder should I get (if at all)? And what kind of program would you suggest for a beginner? Starting Strength? Will proal check out the local gym at the beginning of next month.
greek yogurt is great for prots -- i like to mix plain flavor with honey and cinnamon but it basically blends with anything
1.82m / 70kg is hungry skeleton mode so i would suggest eating everything you see with little regard for calories
i like to follow a general rule of ~2g protein per kg bodyweight
you are primed to make gains for sure, as long as you can eat enough
find a gym with a power rack / squat rack
starting strength is definitely recommended, i wish i would have done it myself
here is 3rd edition i would read this cover to cover http://www.desolatecarnage.net/gary/ss3.pdf
you cannot go wrong doing this program and eating in a caloric surplus
you will make gains every workout for at least 3-4 months
any questions let me know
