Again, the workouts are pretty much a non-issue. I enjoy my workouts and nowadays I can complete the circuits pretty quickly. But I have to stress that the workouts are not easy. The reason why the circuits end quickly is because I take minimal rest between sets. Hence increasing the intensity.
Anyway, what I wanted to say is the workouts are not the real challenge. The real challenge is the diet. I need to eat more. And I need to eat clean. Eating more is easy. But eating more clean food (i.e. natural, not processed food) is a tough task. So far I can think of two ways to make my diet 'cleaner':
- Blender drinks - this is recommended by DailyMuscle and from what I can see, it's not that tough to prepare. I can actually prepare the ingredients beforehand, put them in nice little containers and when I need a drink I'll just whip one of the containers out and chuck the contents into a juicer and wham! I have a meal ready. The only thing is... I don't have a juicer. Surprise. Surprise.
- Weight gainers - Weight gain powder could be an okay way of adding up the calories. The sugar contents are a bit high, but I think I can deal with that. But the cost of a tub of weight gainer is the same as the cost of a juicer.
If you have some tips and tricks for me on how to have healthy meals for someone on a budget and has a time constraint AND who doesn't like to cook (I know, tall order huh?), I would really appreciate your feedback.
