    Default "General" Nutrition Question

    Hi guys, this is my first post here.

    I've been training with KBs for slightly more than six months and have gained 4kg of muscle without changing my diet. The thing is, as the bells get heavier, do I have to make changes to my diet as well? My general goal is simply to work up from the 24s to the 32s in the basic drills and I'm wondering how much diet affects training. I'm of the uninformed opinion that it doesn't really matter what I eat rather than what I don't eat, so I always avoid excess fat and sugar where I can. As for what I do eat, I've been roughly following the book "Eat Right For Your Type" by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo, who advocates what food and much of it to eat according to your blood type. Since I'm "O" I normally eat like this from Mon-Sat:

    Breakfast
    1 cup soya milk
    2 bananas or a fruit bar

    I don't like to eat much in the morning and that's all I can stand before my morning workouts.

    After workout, 1 cup juice.

    Lunch
    Occupying a regular dinner plate: 1/4 white rice, 1/4 vegetables, 1/2 meat (red, white, seafood, whatever)
    1 cup juice
    Very small serving of anything nice and sweet

    1 cup juice late afternoon

    Dinner
    Occupying a regular dinner plate: 1/4 white rice, 1/4 vegetables, 1/2 meat (red, white, seafood, whatever)
    1 cup juice
    Very small serving of anything nice and sweet


    Before sleeping,
    1 cup soya milk
    Very small serving of anything nice and sweet


    Sundays I sleep in real late so I don't eat breakfast.

    Lunch
    Occupying a regular dinner plate: 1/4 white rice, 1/4 vegetables, 1/2 meat (red, white, seafood, whatever)
    1 cup juice
    Very small serving of anything nice and sweet

    Dinner
    Burger King, Subway, Billy Bombers, McDonald's, Long John's, anything tasty and greasy and lots of it!


    Is there anything I should add, minus or change?

    Default "General" Nutrition Question

    Welcome to the forum bro. Although I do not know too much about D’adamo’s approach towards eating, I do know the basic idea of it, that is, I do not know which foods an individual should consume for their blood type. With that said, I will try and offer some advice as far as nutrition goes. For health and fitness in general, I would suggest that it is best to avoid consuming fruit juice, as it causes a rapid surge in insulin which is commonly known to increase the chances of fat gain. You should try and eat whole fruit instead if juice as whole fruit has more fibre and does not cause as large an insulin spike. A good time, however, to have juice is immediately following a workout as this is the time when you want to get a quick supply of nutrients into your blood/muscles to improve protein sysnthesis and glycogen resynthesis…After a workout it would be wise to consume some protein with your simple carb fruit juice as protein is important at this time to help build and repair muscle tissue that has been damaged from your workout. Research suggests that it is best to consume a shake after a workout consisting of protein powder (e.g. whey) and a simple carb (e.g. fruit juice).
