Do you think that eating a little more could improve performance/strength?

I only ask because for years I've tried to stay around 80kg and I think it's had a negative effectfect on my strength gains.

WILLSAN said:2 meals a day - bfast and dinner. toasted mackerel sandwich for bfast. weekdays low cal dinner usually chicken/chips/salad, scrambled eggs on toast or baked cod/chips/broccoli. lots of veg and fruit between meals.

weekends eat with the fam so normal stuff. usually lose weight through the week then put it back on over the weekend. if I want to drop some I just try to limit weekend cals so that I put on less than I dropped in the week. works pretty well.


Toasted mackerel sandwich sounds like a quality way to start the day.

I have been eating the following:

150g of Museli
3 scoops of protein powder
1 heaped tsp of cinnamon
50g of dried fruit
Pinch of salt
Chopped Apple
500ml of apple juice


Mixed in a one litre bowl. 900 calories of gains fuel - that tastes like cake mix.

my priorities have changed now. feeling healthier is now ranking above sporting performance. however, I do think that as I have dropped weight through the years I have become a better athlete lb 4 lb. my deadlift is about as good at 75 as it was at 105 for example!

I know for sure a 125+ log is there with another 10kg on me but I have set myself the challenge of 120 @ u75. also want to match or surpass my best pull [240] at u75.

ill still compete but winning isnt the be all and end all anymore.

only thing that tops it is a weekend fry up!

I think you eventually adapt to lower quantities of food. just thinking back to what I used to eat when I was up at 105-110 makes me feel nauseous.

It just seems like such a small amount of food.
Do you not have any protein shakes or bars as snacks throughout the day to bump your protein intake up a little?

no. 'dinners' are probably what you would call a large portion so maybe seems like less than it actually is.

forgot to say that I have a couple of brownies after training which prob have a pretty high cal count.

and that, except for the apres training brownies, I eat dinner at 2-3 and then dont eat again till breakfast at 6.30am. so a type of intermittent fasting I guess?

but my food intake is much higher at the weekend. we usually have a big meal over the weekend like a roast with all the trimmings or cooked breakfast or something like that.
