Well, I'm keeping track of what I'm eating for my own personal goals, so I might as well post it here! Trying to, over the course of the next several months or year, put on 10-15 pounds and some actual muscle. I currently weigh about 155. It has thus far been extremely difficult for me to put on weight, and I was already a heavy eater (fast matabolism, lots of cardio), so I gotta really make sure I eat a ton!


12/18

large bowl of kashi cereal, soy milk

bowl of black bean salad,
coconut/peanut sauce

smoothie: juice from 4 oranges,
almonds, blueberries, banana,
4 scoops hemp protein powder

quinoa w/ coconut/peanut sauce

homemade hemp protein bar

burrito w/ beans, quinoa,
tahini sauce, salsa

bowl of quinoa, black bean salad,
coconut/peanut sauce

Totals: ~2,800 calories, 117 g protein

Alright, I need to get back into this. I'm eating lots, but not doing enough cardio...getting stronger, but also getting a bit of a gut! :shock:

Today:

Weetabix cereal w/ soy milk

Sunshine burger w/ 3 Ezekial's sprouted corn tortillas, ketchup+mustard

PB+J on homemade whole wheat masala bread

handful of olives

2 huge bowls of potato-leek-lentil stew, brown rice

pint of Maggie Mudd's peanut butter palooka ice cream (hangs head in shame)

apple w/ PB

I've found that cardio and building muscle (with a fast metabolism like you have) do not go together. Then again, it depends on how much muscle you want to have, and what kind of muscle fibers you have (which with fast metabolism is usually the fast twitch fibers predominates).
You are going to have to add a protein shake somewhere in your diet, or more of the homemade hemp bars (I take a hemp protein drink personally cause the excess carbs from the oatmeal, etc., in the bar is not needed with all the other fibrous carbs I eat from my other foods like you do).
Perhaps balancing portions of food also, so as not to get a gut. I personally just take the gut. I put on a few pounds while I am bulking up during the winter time. That way I know that I am putting just a little too much in my body, but plenty to build on (as long as the protein is there, and the carbs are also needed to help build the muscle).
Also need to stress the importance of sleep/rest for recovery.

Thanks for the pointers, I'll take them into account!

I can't not do cardio, though--for my lifestyle and my knee injuries I need to keep it up. If it sacrifices a bit of muscle, that's okay!

I think there's a good chance I'll be in the Land of Ports by summer at the latest. We love it up there so much! We'll have to work out again. And sweat it up at Van Hanh ;)
