Hello, I’m now barely starting to want to be healthy. With this new decision, I’ve successfully cut down the amount of soda intake from 1 daily 12oz can to 1 every other week.
My goal is to increase my weight but convert it all into muscle. I have been going to the gym twice a week. I don’t do much cardio except to warm up. I’m mostly using weight machines to strengthen my arms, core and legs .
I eat 3-5 times a day: at least breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I hate vegetables so they’re not really in my diet but I’m trying to incorporate them in. When I do eat vegetables, I eat them raw because I hate the texture they get when cooked/steamed. I eat chicken mostly, but I also consume some beef and occasionally some pork.
Beans and rice are a big part of my daily meals. And I do drink a protein drink almost on a daily basis. These drinks are 8oz and have 20 grams of protein.
Should I increase the amount of chicken I eat? Increase beef? Drink more protein bottles? How can I better my diet to reach my goals?
