    Hi coach,

    I’m setting the meal plan for my Power Building program, but I don’t understand a thing, if I workout at 1 pm (like I usually do because of my job) which of the two meal plan should I do? AM workout or PM workout?

    Thanks

    Many thanks! Another information sorry, during the workout days I’m suppose to be consuming 288g of carbo per day, but without the amount for the peri workout nutrition (54g) they are 234g, to be split on meal 2 and meal 3, so 117g of carbo… seems really a lot of carbo for just 2 meals, aren’t they?

    Many thanks again

    Since you only have carbs on 2 meals, I’d try different carbs source, here’s some idea for a meal

    1,5 cup of cooked rice = roughly 75gr carbs

    1/2 cup dry oats = 25gr carbs

    1 cup berries = 18gr carbs

    total = 116gr carbs

    the oats and fruits as a dessert can be very welcome. just an idea

    Wonderful, thanks for the tip. My only doubt is to gain fat consuming such a big amount of carbo in a single meal.

    whether it’s in one meal or spread on multiple meals, the only difference is the insulin spike, but overall the thermic effect of food will be the same. »So you won’t gain more fat by consuming one 115gr of carbs in one sitting than consuming 115gr over 3 meals for example. At the end of the day, it’s still the same amount.
