Default More kcals, more protein, more fat

I'd been intending to do this for awhile, but a particular situation that will not be repeated where I consumed no food whatsoever for 30 hours has prompted the creation of this food log.

What am I doing?
BJJ(apparently needs some more carbs than would be normal for only WL training to supply glycogen to regenerate ATP from ADP as the rounds are a medium length)

The most basic novice program in the Everett book.(Fat and protein for the most part)

Clearly I'm going to need around 150 grams of protein a day(I actually weigh less than 150 but I will aim high and go higher if I gain weight) In the Everett book it is said only animal type protein should be used for the daily protein count.

I'll need lots of saturated fats. To this end I've bought a pound of coconut oil.

I figure as a general rule of thumb I should eat more than seems reasonable - this should put me at a decent kcal level I hope.

I will not be able to measure or even do an ok guess as to the amount and make up of foods I get from the university food court. Their saving grace is, due to the Vegans, they have diverse vegetables. Of course they are not as hot for high quality protein and fat. They do have hummus and whole milk.

Macronutrient profile is for all the servings of the food in question

That being said, this kicks off the food log:

2:00AM

3 cans of tuna = 300kcal 3g fat 0g carb 78g protein

About 3 servings of natural peanut butter = 570kcal 48g fat 21g carb 27g protein
This is difficult to eat straight out of the jar - very sticky

Took one TopCare Century advanced formula multi

Took 8 fish oil caps = 100kcal 10g fat probably something like 1200mg of EPA/DHA(not exactly labeled on bottle )

Obviously I've slacked off the diet log, I've lost weight(142lbs with clothes today) and my diet has suffered!

I'm going to change all that though. Grow better levers, get better numbers etc

I drank a total of 130oz of whole milk today(broken down into 3 meals) - this is about a gallon. It's been awhile but I seemed to tolerate the gallon easily and I want to make this a regular thing.

I had 2 big plates of garbanzo beans and black beans and I had some hummus and pizza.

Ate a decent amount of almonds and 2 small apples late at night

Default A day late in posting

Drank another gallon of whole milk today - my stomach seems to be doing fine with 3 large drinking sessions instead of glasses throughout the day like I did before.

I ate some tomatoes, a bit of hummus, a few slices of pizza, a few apples and snacked on some almonds. I also had 4 cups of weak coffee in the morning and a double expresso at night. I've been drinking a lot more caffeine lately, probably cause it's nice to drink something hot in the cold.

Obviously the milk is good, but it's only about 2000kcal and I don't want a mono-diet so I need to make more of an effort to work in lots of other food.

Mini mass gain program(see training log for details) starts today.

I've got ZMA and a lactase product. Obviously I'll take the ZMA before bed and I've taken the lactase just now.

Today I had a breakfast of toast, 3 cups of coffee, steak, 2 eggs and a bit of fruit. I then had a duck sammich(small portion) and hot chocolate.

I'm getting started on the GOMAD pretty late but that's only for today because I've been out all day. I hope the lactase will reduce/stop the gas and other problems that come from GOMAD.

Ate dinner, plate of rice and a small bit of tuna and cooked carrots.

Parents are saying I can't have the GOM today, very annoying. Every time I try to actually eat I get a ton of resistance about how I shouldn't be drinking the GOMAD, lots of SB. I'm really really tired so in about an hour I'm going to take the ZMA and sleep.
