I agree with Zack on meal timing. I eat three meals a day, each one big and containing a lot of protein. The only instance where the timing of food matters is right after a workout. Either getting a meal within 30 or so minutes or having a shake or whatnot is important there. With your small appetite, like Zack said, lots of liquid nutrition would help. I actually blend 1/2 - 2/3 of my soups when I make them.

I also started taking BodyTech creatine monohydrate today, which I've never tried before (creatine in general). The only supplements I normally take are Vega, Sunwarrior, Activated Barley, a daily B12 tablet, maca powder, and Vega EFA oil. Pretty much whole food stuff, nothing quite like creatine. I've been hesitant to use it in the past, and I still am to some degree, but perhaps cycling it once or twice will help me put some weight on (other than water).

Remember plenty of carbs!

Well, today was a bit of a fail, but at least I learned what not to do!

1 slice of whole wheat bread
1 cup of Pom juice
1/3rd of a cup of nuts
1 & 1/2 cups of Pom lime
1 bowl of mixed baked veggies & potato
Half a small deep dish with veggies
A glass of beer
1 cup of apple juice
5 strawberries
1 banana
2 servings of Sunwarrior
1 organic peanut butter and superfood jelly sandwich on whole wheat

And I didn't exercise beyond going for a walk because my arms and back were still too sore to do a press, work shoulders or even extend my arms for a tricep exercise! However, the pain and stiffness is finally going away so hopefully I'll be ready to work out again by tomorrow. I've literally never felt this sore for this long before. The doctor warned this might be the case, as I have no reserve muscle to rely on when I break one down through training.

I will eat like mad tomorrow.

..is it just me or are you doing too much cardio for trying to bulk up? ..and are you getting enough calories? ..looking at your food intake, it doesn't look like it to me (tho I'm just a noob...)

Here's yesterday's log:

2 cups apple juice
A bowl of strawberries
2 bananas
2 scoops of Vega Whole Food
2 tablespoon of Vega EFA oil
A probar
1 scoop of activated barley
1 & 1/2 servings of Sunwarrior
A serving of nuts
A cliff twisted fruit
A bowl of oatmeal
A cup of raspberries
Some pineapple
1/2 a cup of pom juice

Not nearly enough obviously. I haven't yet worked out how to eat during a really busy day. Yesterday I had college, the gym, a music lesson, and then a first date all back to back. I ate a Probar after class and was able to make a protein shake after the gym, but had no time to make a full meal. It definitely showed me that I need to have more prepared meals ready to take in the car and such.


Here's what I did in the gym (my new plan being to focus a lot more on compound movements):


10 minute stationary bike warm-up


Dumbbell flat bench press

15lbs (per hand) x 17 reps
22.5x12
30x12
30x12
35x10
35x6


Overhead barbell press

30 x 10
30 x 8
30 x 7
30 x 6


Incline Dumbbell Bench Press

25 lbs (per hand) x 5 reps
20 x 6
20 x 6
20 x5


Tricep pushdowns

25x12
25x14
30x6 (fried at this point)
