    I have found out a long time ago that my ability to think of three meals a day and two snacks or whatever we are supposed to eat in order to best support the building of BIG muscle is at about a 3 on a scale of 1 to 100!

    Is there a monthly, or even weekly meal plan to assist when our creativity and shopping list making are in the toilet? I find that when I am going to the store I tend to buy a lot of 'things' but when I get home trying to stretch out my meal creating ability is limited by my lack of ability of what to even make beyond MAYBE one dish! I often buy the 'staples' over and over just in case I won't have what i need and end up running to the store or giving up on making that thing, or ANYTHING besides a bowl of cereal and slice of
    german chocolate cake!

    I know many of the big guys have solved this problem, otherwise they would have been eating a dozen raw eggs and and an apple everyday! What have YOU done for a meal/shopping plan to keep the creativity to a maximim?

    Chicken, broccoli, frozen veggie blends, raw/unsalted mixed nuts (sometimes roasted), eggs, and lots of natural juices (no sugar added).

    Those are my staples.

    You are 53 and you're 6'2. Big muscles won't happen to you regardless of your diet unless your doctor gives you some chemical help. Focus on just being healthy. Diet is personal and what applies to me won't apply to you. If you want serious advice and a meal plan that is adapted to your appetite, age, budget, metabolism, food preferences, current health and goals you should consult with a dietitian.

    Oy. Now that's just plain depressing.

    I'm 6'2 too... Tall guys need to make enormous gains to make any difference and this is difficult even when you're 20. It's actually a consolation that he's now entitled to some chemical help! icon_cool.gif
