This is how I ate to get my bench up to 370 and squat to 600

 

Breakfast:

 

2 bananas before the gym when I woke up...when I got back:

close to a Whole box or cereal

1 carton of soymilk

a couple apples

2 heaping spoonfulls of peanut butter before class

 

In class diet...about a span of 5hrs:

Pick at a can of nuts

2-3 fruits...whatever I stole from the dining hall

2 very peanut buttery pbj sandwiches

 

Go to track practice(3-4hrs)

 

Late Lunch 5ish:

huge salad...atleast a head of lettuce, 2 tomatoes, couple handfulls of mushrooms, as many scoops of chichpeas that wouldn't overflow my tray.

Alot of really lousy vegetarian chilli(the only hot food that was vegan and availiable every day)

1/2lbs of pasta with really lousy marinara and some bread with oil

 

As much fruit as I could eat for desert

 

Go home to study...

Aka...skim a little and eat to keep full.

 

Pic away and eat my daily package of soy dogs

 

2-4 veggie burgers

 

Do some technique drills and stretching in my room

 

Maybe a cheeseless pizza from the local pizza shop or a stromboli

 

snack on carrots, raisons and nuts

 

Chug down some soymilk and juice before bed

 

Go to bed for 4 hours and do it all over again.

 

About 10,000 calories...sometimes more

breakfast: shake made of unsweetened soymilk, hemp protein, and some frozen berries (sometimes with nut butter or some maple syrup)

 

snack: another protein shake because it is right after my workout

 

lunch: some type of sandwich. maybe a low carb wrap with mock chicken salad made of tempeh, avocado, sprouts, and tomato. maybe some german flourless whole grain and seed bread with a marinated tofu cutlet, sliced onion, sprouts, tomato, spinach......

 

snack: a bowl of vegetable soup with tofu cubes

 

dinner: stir-fried vegetables and tofu OR high protien pasta with faux ground beef & tomato sauce OR beans in corn tortillas with enchilada sauce and fresh salsa......

 

snack: another bowl of soup with tofu cubes

I think your fine on carbs, protein seems good too.

As for hemp protein whats it taste like. I can't at my local grocer and haven't felt like ordering something I haven't tried thats not cheap. Is it a little like flax meal or what...I'll get it eventually but I live in a really christian area and anything with hemp in it is really hard to find.

8 AM:

smoothie (rice milk, frozen banana, blueberries, hemp protein, flax)

cup of tea

 

10 AM:

Usually a Luna bar

 

12 PM:

Varies, but it is very often a hearty soup or stew or casserole type thing that combines some kind of legume with vegetables. Nearly always have it over quinoa, now and then over brown rice.

 

3 PM:

soy yogurt with wheat germ

cup of tea

 

Dinner (anywhere from 6:00 to 8:30, depending on what I'm doing):

Usually something that also fits the description I have under lunch. Sometimes something different like a sandwich or a burrito or something like that.

 

That's weekdays, which are pretty consistent due to working. Weekends are often totally different. I am far less likely to have snacks. Sometimes I sleep late and just have breakfast late and have no lunch. I'm more likely to eat a meal out.

 

I don't do fit day any more, but I used to and I usually got anywhere from 1600 to 1900 calories per day, with an average of about 13-18% protein, 20-30% fat, and the rest carbs.

Bigbwii: Did you find that the longer you've been fruitarian, the less food you have had to eat to maintain/gain strength and energy?

I just posted about my experiment with a mostly raw food diet

 

(viewtopic.php?p=43802#43802)

 

I fell off the wagon for 2 weeks but got right back on. My first 17 days of mostly raw food felt amazing....but now I'm about 8 days into it after a 2 week break, and I'm feeling good, but also a little tired. Dont have the zip I had during my first 17 days. Not sure if this is normal or not...more details in my other post.

Hey Ravi...I would weight in at 320(6'1") in my pre-season to pack on strength and drop to 280 or so by the end of the season to get speed for state championships and nationals(same type of training in college). At 320 I would rarely do any olympic lifts or speed work, focusing purely on strength gaining. Then as the season came I would work some olypic lifts into my training and some sprints. By the end of each season my only heavy squatting/deadlifting would really be for a warmup(no more than 4 sets just to make sure I still kept some strength). I would be exclusively doing cleans, dumbell jumps, sprints(I kept my upper body work the same throughout though). With all that extra volume I didn't need to pay attension to my diet to loose weight...it just came off while eating pretty much the same amount of food.

This is what I am eating at the moment because I am in a transitional living situation and have to crash at my rehearsal studio. I have a dorm fridge and a hot plate and most of my pantry items aren't around except for a small sauce pan and a blender. This is a good example of living economically though because I am saving a lot of money eating this way.

 

 

Meal 1

 

Oatmeal, and a smootie with protein powder, orange juice, banana, and spinach.

 

Meal 2

 

Protein shake with protein powder, spinach, banana and soy milk

 

Meal 3

 

brown rice and beans, cooked with onions, celery, and carrots and seasoned with salt, chili powder and large quantities of hot sauce.

 

Meal 4

 

left-overs of the beans and rice mixture, or a peanut butter and banana sandwich

 

Meal 5

 

apples and celery with peanut butter

 

Meal 6

 

Pot of vegetarian ramen type soup with whatever vegetables I have on hand. I usually have carrots, celery, onions, collard greens and spinach.

 

 

* I drink a large amount of water and I'll occasionally drink some tea as well.

This is pretty much what my normal diet looks like when I'm focusing on getting strong and building muscle:

 

Breakfast: 2 scoops organic raw hemp protein powder with 1-2 bananas,

1 scoop raw cocao chocolate powder, yacon root syrup,

half a cup of soaked cashews, coconut cream and water,

and raw cashew butter.

 

 

Snack: Cashew Butter Banana sandwhich- 4-8 tablespoons of

raw cashew butter, sprouted whole grain bread, one large

banana, with some raw honey and cold pressed flaxseed oil.

 

 

Lunch: Spinach and lettuce salad with four red tomatoes, organic

Homemade italian dressing with expeller pressed olive oil,

one cup of mixed seeds and cashews, and 2 scoops of hemp

protein powder with 1 banana and homemade coconut milk.

 

 

Snack: Crunchy cashew butter honey banana sandwhich- Sprouted

whole grain bread, raw honey, 1 banana, and 4-8 tablespoons

raw cashew nut butter. Red organic strawberries and coconut

cream dipped in raw organic cocao chocolate sauce made with

cocao powder, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and coconut cream.

 

 

Dinner: Raw pizza with dehydrated crust made of mixed nuts and seed,

coconut meat, flaxseeds, etc. The toping is made with my

homemade tomato sauce, green peppers, onions, raw cheese,

olives, and spices. Usually served with a side salad.

 

 

Before bed snack: 2 scoops raw organic hemp protein powder,

1 banana, homemade coconut milk and cream,

2 tblspoons of raw cashew butter on sprouted whole

grain bread, 2 cups organic red grapes, and flaxseed

All the food is pretty much all raw and organic.
