After a long time meal prepping and having to deal with busy and stressful periods (everything looks great and planned at the beginning but then life gets crazy!) I have decided that I needed to simplify my tactics to keep getting results.
Assuming the diet is generally not too bad, and that I know which bad carbs to avoid and good ones to eat, the one thing I lacked was enough protein. I was eating about 100-120 g a day and that’s probably not enough.
I then assumed that 160-180g would be a decent target (I am 6’ tall and 97kg) and I am now just estimating the protein content and making sure I eat enough. If I don’t reach it, I’d add protein shakes, milk or yoghurt in the evening to balance. 2 weeks in and seems to be working (more time will tell more).
I am curious as what other guys do. Do you track all your nutrients? How do you manage your time (I’m very busy and sometimes meal prepping is a nice unrealistic idea).
luckily here in Sydney there are lots of healthy and protein loaded options everywhere...
Very determined to get from current 97kg to a quality 100kg by Xmas!
let me know what you guys think!
