Hi! I hope to get this question answered. I’m working with a trainer and I’m new to the gym. Currently, this is what I am supposed to be eating:
Breakfast- I cup oatmeal and 50g protein shake
Meal 2: 1 cup brown rice with 8ounce chicken + veggie
Meal 3: 1 cup brown rice with 8oz flank steak + veggie
Meal 4: 1cup Red potatoes and 8oz cod + veggie
Meal 5: 1 cup yams with 8 ounce grilled chicken + veggie
Meal 6: 50g protein shake
Due to my schedule, I work long shifts at the hospital, I am unable to eat the oatmeal from meal 1, and usually cannot eat meal 2 and meal 4. Which means, I’m not having enough protein and carbs.
So basically, if I replace 3 of the above meals with Huel, will I be getting similar macro intake? I’ve asked my trainer but she says no but I think it’s bevause she wants me to continue buying my protein from her- which I will, LOL, but I need a solution for the meals I am unable to eat.
Also, I am working out about 5 days a week and my main goal is to build muscle. Please let me know!
