Until about 5-6 months ago, I barely ate any protein or fats, partly because of several books I have read, a really bad course regarding the Atkins diet I tried a few years ago and several other things.
I read a book by a climber Mark Twight, who advocated a higher protein / higher fat type of diet for endurance trainers. At this point I also started doing more compound exercises mixed into circuits 'crossfit' style as well as looking at my diet and eating more protein and fats. I am now leaner and stronger than I was 6 months ago, but now I want more, and my diet is probably the worse part of my routine and the thing I know least about.
Here is what I tend to eat
1) @0630: 100g full corn oats with 200ml Fruit juice.
2) @0900: (post workout shake) 3scoop whey powder + 1 scoop peanut butter (no milk). Only on workout days
3) @1100: 2 pieces of fruit and a hand full of nuts
4) @1230-1300 lunch: 1 tin of tinned fish (tuna, herring, sardines) and 100-150g full corn bread (German rye bread).
5) @1600 100-150g full corn bread (German rye bread) with 100g of peanut butter, or 1 can of fish. || Or 2pieces of fruit and a handfull of nuts).
6) @1900 (post workout only), 3-4 boiled eggs.
7) @ 1900 - 2000 (end of day meal). 200-250g piece of meat with 200-300g of veggies and a whole load (40g?) of olive/sesame/walnut oil.
So my question is, what kind of diet is this? There is still a reasonable amount of carbs in there, but it's full corn oats before breakfast, rye bread and fruit/veggies. The fruit tends to be apples and bananas and veggies are a depending on what I buy at the shop.
What could my next step be, with regards to my diet. In 2 weeks, I will move onto a part of my program where I focus mainly on strength training, this would probably be a good time to try and put on some lean muscle mass for 4-6 weeks, while after that is a power/power endurance phase where I can probably 'cut' a lot of weight down.
I also feel that my diet has plateaued, in the first few months I shed loads of fat, but now it's relatively constant. Suggestions welcome :)
