    Kale juice should do it.

    Maybe spinach, but not too much, I don't want to poison her.

    Only 3+ hours lol but I find when I have to be confined in a seat for a while the day after a heavy back/DL workout, my back can tighten up, even just going to a movie will do it. Have big plans for golf, biking, tennis, swimming, surfing, snorkling etc so don't want to be dealing with a sore back. Prolly just gonna go light to be safe.

    Would you guys mind sharing what you eat during a typical day ? I've been on some kind of plan but I am kind of uncertain it works. Never had weight issue or anything so it's hard to determine if it's optimal for me. I eat 6x a day and I go the the gym at 8:30.

    Breakfast (~7:30) : 2 eggs white + bagel + greek yogurt
    Around 10 : Protein shake + salad (well, most of the time just the shake)
    Lunch (around 12:30) : Pasta + salad (It's here that I am a little skeptical..... why pasta, maybe you can guys give your opinion/suggestions)
    Around 15:00 : greek yogurt + muffin
    Diner (17h30) : 150g meat + 100g veggies
    Around 20:00 : Protein shake + almonds

    3L of water each day.

    Mon-Fri I generally eat the same thing:

    1. Toast with some avocado/almond or peanut butter and coffee
    2. Late Lunch Smoothie, loaded with greens, frozen berries, oats, and seeds (hemp, chia, flax)
    3. Post Workout Protein Shake
    4. Post workout meal which is usually smoked tofu on hummus toast
    5. Late Dinner, mix it up with stirfrys, lasagna, pastas, sushi, burritos, burgers, shepards pie, curries, etc just try and build it around beans, greens, and grains. Usually have a desert or a couple of beers.

    Weekends I usually just hammer anything and everything, lots of junk, alcohol, pizzas etc

    Hopefully the Vegan Aspie debate is over for good...

    What is your goal, get bigger or leaner? I find it easier to simply focus on hitting the macros. If it fits your macros, there's nothing wrong with eating pasta.

    I want to get more ripped without adding fat. I am 6' and 175 lbs and I'm ok with that. My plan is suppose to take into accounts everything in order to achieve that, but I am sooooooooo tired of eating pasta every single lunch.

    Ok, you could try brown rice, quinoa, kidney beans, chick peas, sweet potatoes, etc. Tons of options for carbs.

    Who knows really, there's no one size fits all, but what is "more ripped" ? You want to stay the same and shed fat ? Then lower you caloric intake.

    Mostly just eat better and more quality. Change the pasta to rice/quinoa/sweet potatoes/beans, change the whey to beef/fish, change the greek yogurt to high fat, low carbs skyr, dont eat muffins wtf, cut your sugar.... Salad ? Wtf is that.

    The bolded part might be my biggest problem, along with all the energy drinks (god awful, i know). And are you ripped as **** ? Cause that's a good "permissive" plan that I could follow. I always thought I had the feeling it was not getting better because I was destroying my plan on weekends, but if you're telling me you are a fitness machine while doing this during weekends it will encourage me ahaha !

    Aahhahaa, salad is in the plan but I don't really eat it. As for "more ripped", I don't really know how to say it..... let's say looking better would be the idea. How much can I really "cut fat" while having 10-11% of fat ? You don't think whey is good (first time I hear it so i'm asking). What would the change from greek yogurt to high fat do ? About the pasta, I like the options you gave me, will try it for sure. Thanks !

    So instead of pasta for lunch, what would be an "ideal" solution ? Can't eat only brown rice for lunch !

    Greek yogurt has less protein/less fat/more sugar/carbs than Skyr yogurt.

    Salad does nothing good for you, stop eating that.

    It's pretty simple, pick a carb, pick a protein and pick macros and you're all set.

    A few recipes:

    Chickpea Salad
    White Bean Salad
    Sweet Potato Mash (Recipe is in french but it's really simple)

    Eat anyone of these with some sort of protein for your lunch.
