      Hey guys, I was wondering if i could get a little help with some of my diet questions. I am eating 2900 calories a day which is 500 over my bmr, 3100 on workout days. I am a very active kid i go to the beach basically every day and spend my time sitting up there, and going light swimming. I am on starting strength and my lifts are going up as regular 2.5lb per session on squat and bench deadlifts around 10.


      I have some questions about diet. My macros are 175 p 425c 80f 3120 cals on workout days and on off days its 175 p 375 c and 80 f.

      I have trouble eating all my protein earlier in the day which leaves me hungry the last 3 hours or so at night.

      I also try to eat all my carbs for breakfast(then i workout), post workout and then 1 meal after that. I understand meal timing is irrelevant but i am waking up leaner the next day. Is there a ready for this?

      All my main sources of carbs come from brown rice, oatmeal. Protein from chicken breast, steak, fish, (shakes on workout days, just postworkout) milk. Fats are from almonds.

      EDIT: Also my post workout meal is usually 1 cup of oatmeal, 2 HBoiled eggs and 3 Hboiled egg whites. do you think i should subsitute the eggs for a shake instead?

      Carbs can cause you to bloat, so if you eat them in the morning you will wake up leaner as its the farthest point in the day from eating carbs.

      It's just water weight.

      Some Questions

      Carbs cause water retention. So obv if you load the majority of them earlier in the day, they're less likely to have a visual effect after you sleep and wake up in the morning since they've had all day to fully digest. I think. Makes sense, anyway.

      Can you push your protein back to later in the day to help with satiation at night?

      Depending on how deep you are into your cut, hunger is going to happen no matter what.

      Your post workout meal can be whatever you want it to be assuming your daily macros are met.

      Your BMR is the amount of calories needed if you stayed in bed all day, and you said you were eating 500 calories above that. Hence why I assumed you were cutting.
