    I think I'm under eating

    Primal Fuel
    Of course we all know that consuming more fat makes you less hungry. I don't eat a whole lot now. I think for nutrition purposes I need to eat more. Although I live by the rule, "If I'm not hungry I don't eat." Plus daily after dinner I do an intermittent fast until morning. Here's how my day generally works out meal wise.

    Morning: On a gym day, I do a protein shake. Non gym day I do either eggs or berries in cream.
    Lunch: On a gym day I'll get home and take another protein shake and generally that holds me over until dinner. On a non gym day I'll normally do a salad, tuna, or a meat.
    Dinner: I eat a protein and vegetables.

    Thats about it. Any opinions?

    Are you keeping track on fitday or something similar?
    You should be tracking your protein, just to make sure you are getting enough to maintain the muscle you have - and hopefully have a surplus so you can benefit from strength training. 1 gram per pound of body weight is a good starting point if you are trying to ad muscle. Sounds like you could use a little more fat in your diet as well.

    I'm not really going to judge so much but just say...

    make sure you get enough protein...and I'd recommend trying for more 'real' protein sources than just shakes all the time..

    then if you are hungry use fats... ... if you aren't... stop worrying about it

    I only do shakes 3 times a week. Some of the times I am eating eggs. I try to get a good amount of fat in my diet but when I'm normally not that hungry. I'd also find it hard to get 220g of protein daily.

    220g of protein?... you have 220lbs of lean body mass? what is your height/weight/BF%? (this is really just out of curiosity... )

    Jason, here is a standard day for me. (25y/o, 158-163lbs)



    This is how I eat as a daily crossfitter. If you are going to the gym and hoping to gain, it doesn't sound like you are eating enough and your protein is coming from shitty sources on gym days.

    Granted, seeing an actual food log would be much better than what you have provided.

    I thought it was per pound. I'm 220 and 6ft. I'm not too sure of my body fat. I think I'm between 20-25%

    I am doing shakes with either almond milk or heavy whipping cream also.

    I think I read somewhere you should eat the amount of protein for the weight you want to be.
