my current food plan

Hi guys and gals, I am after some feedback on my diet/food plan which I run pretty strict at the moment and.I think.it is helping with my gains.

I am 30 years old, 5ft 9, weighing 75kg, body fat no more than 10 percent, so in pretty good shape really, but.want.to.be a.bit.bigger about 80kg to.help with the heavy wods!!

Current plan:

6am- optimum nutrition protein shake
7.15am- porridge with blueberries
9am- black coffee and 3 boiled eggs
10.30am- tin of tuna/mackerel a pear and an orange/apple
12.00- protein bread sandwich with chicken salad and protein crisps, all bought from muscle foods.com
Pre workout 1300- black coffee, handful of.almonds
Post workout- protein shake with creatine
1500- chicken and sweet potato
1730- 3 boiled eggs.and.a wholemeal.bagel
1930- chicken breast, protein pasta and veggies
2130 before.bed- calcium.cassenete protein shake

Does.this look any.good? I.also take multi.vits, glucosamine sulphate and goji berry extract

Thanks

Ian

Re: my current food plan

Have you counted calories/amounts on that?

The one thing I would say is that I'd prefer you replace a couple of those protein shakes with some real food. No reason for 3 a day.

Re: my current food plan

The only thing I would add is that there seem to be a lot of meals. I personally found it easier to have slightly bigger but fewer meals.

When I follow a strict plan I usually go for five meals.

i think so too...remember those shakes are just an addition to your nutrition, not the main source of protein income^^

Re: my current food plan

btw..here you can see, that protein's not the most important thing for a succesfull diet...a balanced diet is the key!

Re: my current food plan

If you are trying to make muscle gains you might want to add some actual meals into that plan. Add some meat like Buffalo/Bison, skip the morning protein shake and sit down for 15 minutes scramble 8 eggs and 3 yolks toss a few ground bison patties down and devour that.

All these shakes I see make me cringe. I hope your body is getting some digestive enzymes or something that will aid in keeping your system nice and clean. Also what other supplements do you take ? Vitamins? Omega?

You and I are same age and height and when I started really getting into WS and later crossfit training I was around 155lbs and 12% BF (smallest guy on my team) Through not having a "strict" diet and just eating AMAP and getting as much oatmeal and meat in my diet I sit at 198 and 9.5% and am happy at this though I am trying to get to 225lbs

Next to a caloric surplus protein a along with fat is vital to muscle building
