Something wrong with me?

I am currently gaining weight and I am doing the SS workout and so far it is great!
I am eating more carbs and protein than I should do relatively to my weight(136.4).
My extreme days were something like 200-300 protein and 600-700 carbs but that happened once maybe twice.
I am drinking water more than half a galon a day.
Resting as should.

I was just wondering if my after-workout meal is OK, or it is too filled with stuff.

My after workout meals are like this if there is no fish or meat ready to eat:

250grams, 8.81 oz(the whole can[can't remember the word for a plastic one, a 'can' is metal right?]) of cottage cheese.

112grams, 4 oz of tuna-in-a-can-with-oil

4 Whole grain bread slices, about 120grams, 4.23 oz.


This is the first strike on my liver.

The second is:

1 slice of whole grain bread, 30grams, 1 oz, with butter on it and on top some sort of a baloney(or not), 4-5 slices.

2 slices of whole grain bread with peanut butter on it.

2-3 cups of milk.



It concludes in(virtual nutrition calculator, don't ask):

2122 calories.
132 protein.
153 carbs.


this is a wow because in these 2 last meals I am eating more protein than I should eat in a day.

So, something would happen to me If I keep doing that?


I am 15.

Re: Something wrong with me?

You should really get some fat in your statistics bub, concentrating on carbs is going to make you slow down. I take in an average of maybe 50g of carbs a day through fruits and veggies.

The truth is, there's already quite a bit of fat in what you're already eating, more than you realize, milk, cheese, oil, butters, nuts are mostly of fat content.

Cutting back on your intake would do you good. Learn to eat only when you're hungry, and not just chow down cause it seems like you should. Also don't eat past the point where you're full, take your time when eating and pay attention to how you respond.

Re: Something wrong with me?

Won't you just get fat from eating all that bread?

Re: Something wrong with me?

whoa...your bread intake is crazy! 7 slices in your post workout meal(s)?

I think it is too much food. If you truly need that many calories then try to move more towards fats. Or more milk. Are you up to the full gallon per day already?

Bread is mostly carbs. *EDIT* Oh I understand your sentence now Júlíus, he might indeed get fat. But he's 15.


As for OP. You are 15. Grab the paleo book for athletes. Learn some good eating habits. Have 1 cheat day a week. And just eat all you can.

Counting that much ( without even being on the zone by the way) will be hard to commit to, but if you can more power to you.

And no I wouldn't suggest Zone, except if you're really serious about your training and are competing at high level, then please enjoy your life. ( that doesn't mean eat bad, read that paleo book you'll see.)

You should try to drink a bit more water. Aim for a full galon, this way you'll get a bit less but still more than half one.

You seem to want to gain mass/strength. At your age, Lift Heavy, Eat a lot, Sleep a lot.

I wish I would have discovered all this at 15

Re: Something wrong with me?

I am eating ALOT veggies and fruits.
I am talking about 3-5 apples a day, bananas, grapefruits.
I am eating veggies everyday with virgin oil.


If eating that much bread is not good, how much should I?

I also forgot to tell that I am taking to school 2 slices of bread with a baloney or something and another 2 for peanut butter.

I can't waive these 4 bread slices at the morning.
But I can waive on the bread after the workout, just give me other carb sources.

I think what everyone is trying to say is that you really don't need the bread. Its basically just empty carbs. If you are going to eat more, eat more fat. I.e. almonds, nuts, avocados etc...or drink a lot more milk.

Exactly. Whole grain is better than white bread, but as it`s been said before, if you eat more, eat more of the good stuff, like more fruits, more veggies (even if it seems tougher), more nuts, they fill you up real good. If you`re still not filled, drink whole milk until you are.



On a side-note, I can`t believe someone could eat that much hah. You eat more than me and you`re 15. Your post-workout meal is, with your nutritional calculations, more than half of the protein and carbs I get in a day. Insane.

Re: Something wrong with me?

David, that's quite a lot of fruit you're getting there, which is also a lot of sugar and carbs in addition to the bread. Personally, I'd cut out the fruit to maybe 3 a day max (I usually just have a banana and a orange in the morning when I wake up) and eat a lot of veggies instead.

Start getting good fats like avacado, olive oil, nuts, and if you feel fine with the dairy, that too.

What kind of milk do you drink? Reduced fat milk generally has more carbs and sugars in it than it will fat (what milk is supposed to be)
