How to learn to cook (for the purpose of strength training)? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I can find out how much protein, carbs, fats, and micronutrients I should *aim* to take in a day. I'm good with numbers. But when it comes time to actually apply it to food, I.e cooking food/learning how. My head just goes blank.

    My last dish (which I was somewhat proud of) consisted of cooked chicken, noodles, and sweet chilli sauce (just 3 ingredients). That said, I quickly got tired of eating the same thing (which was mediocre in flavour at best)

    Does anyone have any advice which is slightly more applicable to those who want to optimise their nutrition was for weight lifting goals?

    Don't get caught up in eating "bro foods" each and every meal. Make sure you get your protein from quality sources such as your meats, eggs, whey protein and milk (with a bit coming from secondary sources like rice, pasta, beans and so on), and if you want to go a bit "dirty" with your carbs and fats then go for it. I never plan what I'm gonna eat the day before to any major extent, apart from planning ahead when buying dinners for the week simply for economical reasons. "Flexible dieting" has been proven to work a million times over.
