College Newbie Help
I'm not exactly brand new to this since I've been drinking bp coffee for about a month now and have tried to follow the diet, but like the title says I'm in college (live in a dorm) and am having some trouble. I've stalked the forums quite a lot since I spend hours reading through it, but I need some personal advice in terms of food. I get its not expensive to be BP, but without being able to cook for myself or have grass fed meat etc I have limited options. I'm about 160 5'9" but eat A LOT (may need leptin reset advice as I can eat 2 pounds of beef at once in order to get full). So here goes
Breakfast: 9am I invested money in a keurig (best I can do..) and mini blender and typically have bp coffee with kerrygold (mini fridge) and now mct. my only supplement as of now is d3 which i have 10k IUs at the moment. i'm still hungry after this but nothing unbearable. on workout days I have bcaas until about 2pm.
Lunch/Dinner: 2pm- 8pm here's where it gets tricky. constantly available are: sushi, ham, turkey, roast beef, hard-boiled eggs, veggie patty, processed grilled chicken patty, chicken stir fry, salad (spinach, black olives, olive oil etc). I typically go for stir fry during dinner because it has the most vegetables, and lean chicken is as good of a protein source as I can find. occasionally there's salmon or tilapia but I don't trust food- court fish. I could bring kerrygold with me and have it with the stir fry. pretty much my question is which of these is best, and am I better off having hard-boiled eggs with oxidized cholesterol and whatnot or lean chicken and vegetables with some fats after the fact.
Snacks: I have grass fed whey but that's post WO mostly. i can't drink a protein shake and feel full. almonds were always a favorite of mine the but the omega 3-6 ratio is bad I hear, I have powdered peanut butter (pb without all the unsaturated fat- not a great choice but more bp than regular pb), sunflower butter (http://www.sunbutter.com/products-cups.php), quest bars, coconut oil, ghee, coffee and tea. also have stevia in the raw but apparently the extra ingredient kicks me out of ketosis.
Pretty much here are my questions:
1. Dave said for non grass fed meat I should go for lean cuts. Would I be better off having grain fed chicken with some coconut oil after or grain fed beef when they have it?
2. Of the snacks, which are most bulletproof? Also have access to Udi's GF bread, kashi crackers, rice cakes (MY WEAKNESS), greek yogurt if need be. I know these all sound like shit but it's all I can do. Snacking in my room is pretty much inevitable. I feel like rice cakes with sunflower butter can be a good carb option. I have access to a wal mart as well so any advice about what to "snack" on would help.
3. any other MUST USE supplements? I feel like quality whey, amino acids, mct oil, d3 run up to a good price so not sure what else if anything
