  • Two meals per day!

    I fast couple days per week, and when i do i can only fit in two meals in my schedule. I have my first meal, train after an hour, first my workout in 2hours, prep and eat my second meal then i’m done and it would be late. What i’m concerned about is am i doing it right or if there is a better approach to it, maybe a word of advice id really appreciate. So, i’m not an actual robot and I'm not from France. Just to clear that up.
    Age : 28
    Height : 5’11
    Weight : 179lb
    - I train seven days a week, i distribute the volume of three days program throughout the week, in my two years of lifting i found myself enjoying this approach the most.
    Calories : I’m on a slow bulk, i do 3000-3050kcal everyday. My weight have plateaued for the past week, so i aim to increase my calories by a 100kcal.
    - On an average day where i dont fast, i do three meals with a shake. Here are my two meals that i do on the days i fast :

    I would not recommend fasting a few days a week if performance (strength, muscle mass, etc.) are important to you and/or you're trying to gain muscle.

    That said, if you're currently gaining weight slowly....the energy intake would be appropriate.

    The meals look fine, I suppose.
