I used a macros calculator to find out how much to eat for a gain goal. I used chicken, eggs, and brown rice to keep the math simple.
After cooking one days worth of food, I wasn't able to finish it all throughout the day. The most difficult part was the sheer volume of brown rice that I needed to eat for the carbs metric. I know that just drinking soda or juice is not a suitable way to get carbs since the lack of fiber will cause the sugar to be stored as fat.
I'm going to use less food and more protein shakes to make for less chewing and eating, but I'm curious about two other strategies for getting more carbs into my diet:
Blending (pulverizing whole fruits/vegetables) - If I get a vitamix, I can drink a good amount of carbs and fiber throughout the day. Is this worth trying?
Drinking juice and taking fiber supplements - Would this even work?
Any other liquid strategies are welcome, thanks.
