Thanks for the advice. I ate 2 bananas and had some coffee before balling and it actually worked. I did much better energy-wise and I recovered fairly well and got a 2nd and 3rd wind.
Next I will try the cocaine (j/k)/
Bananas are simple carbs, not sure how far into the diet your going but if your looking for a good gluten free carb try sweet potatoes. I fry them up in coconut oil and add salt. If your not gluten free then oatmeal would work. If your diet is geared toward weight loss start your day with fats and proteins and save your carbs for after workouts except on game days.
It's a pure myth that you need that much protein per day. 90% of the world doesn't eat like that. Only misguided weekend warriors.
Egyptian slaves would laugh at the workouts and food you eat. Thinking that excess exercise/eating is actually healthy for you. Enjoy your old age with no mobility and early death.
The contemporary thinking among body builders and elite athletes is 1g per lb/day. For actual "weekend warriors" 0.75g is enough. If youre an active young man playing sports several times a week & lifting weights, then you need extra protein & rest (i.e. sleep) to recover your body. Your organs, joints, CNS, muscles, tendons, etc are all taxed after a heavy session of weights or basketball. This is why it is extremely important to maintain a nutritionally balanced diet that is high in protein while getting atleast 7 hours of sleep. While you may think the protein requirement is just a myth perpetuated by protein companies, how does that explain the fact that most of the athletic world agrees and swears by this principle?
135g of protein is definitely doable on a vegan diet. Doable, but it wont be easy.
1 protein shake is 30g which is already like 1/4th of your requirement.
The remaining 100g is the hard part. I guess youll have to eat lots of beans or some shit. Is there any reason you are vegan, OP? Have you considered vegetarian instead?
I wouldn't recommend this but a lot of people I used to play with, lifted a lot for about 1.5 hours. Jogged on the treadmill or elliptical for 10 minutes to stretch out their legs. Stretch a bit then play basketball for about 45-60 mins. I tried doing this once after benching, deadlifts, ab workouts, free weights and I was bricking everything because my hands were so wobbly. I have heard cardio is the best way to end a lifting workout but how true it is? I'm not entirely sure.
Someone at my gym did this on a daily basis on top of eating I believe recovery protein bars after their workout and they got really big by the end of 3 or so years. It was a noticeable difference from being average weight/decent physique to a bodybuilding type of body.
