Thanks for sticking up for us Anarie :) I definitely feel I fall into the atypical college diet lifestyle, but I needed to switch to drop a lot of fat. These guys are all the same size they've been, and even in decent shape, but it seems to me they stay this way by not eating hardly at all during the day (which I can't do) and then every other evening it seems like a big pizza night or something since it's cheap and they don't cook ever. If you looked at it by a weekly calorie differential it probably comes out about even, but I'm just used to running on proper nutrition and feeling great. I haven't felt this sluggish since my first couple years of college. Back then, I thought the tiredness was related to lack of sleep. Now I realize it was just cuz I wasn't fueling my body properly. I could never go back to this way, no matter how cheap. I just have to save my money elsewhere unfortunately.
Todays been a bit better. I snagged a slice of toast with some PB was all for breakfast. Then went and worked out and had some protein and milk. Then finally found some people to go to this awesome diner to for brunch (3pm) and nothing warm sounded good so a nice chicken salad. With a 3 o'clock meal I'm just afraid the next time any food to be had will be the beers tonight lol. If it is anything, it'll be some simple carby snack, no protein of course.
I feel like apologizing to my muscles tho. I was on an awesome coffee rush in the gym and worked it hard. And now they won't get near what they want to recover quickly. Aw well, still having fun seeing people just wasn't really expecting this. I'm trying to relax a but about how I'm eating and just go with the flow so this is just another test and experience.
