I've pretty much been following the Twinkie diet for the last 3 months or so
Basically, I kept the healthy meals, but added syrup to my porridge, ate crisps and cake with my soup and yoghurt at lunch, grazed on cheese crackers and bread while cooking dinner, and ate chocolate or whatever afterwards. I didn't snack between breakfast and lunch, or between lunch and grazing while cooking
Toting up the calories for what I will eat today- brought homemade humous, carrot, cucumber, celery, and cottage cheese for mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack (totalling ~500 calories) - i reckon I've been making up my daily calorie intake to ~2300/2400 which is roughly maintenance for the amount of exercise I've been doing I reckon (and my weight hasn't changed much if at all).
However, I've possibly been doing my training a disservice since I could probably have done with more protein.
Food for today, which based on yesterday I expect to kill the grazing and sweet hunger, works out as 2100-2200 calories and ~90g of protein, possibly a bit more. This will probably put me in a slight calorie deficit over the week. We'll see. It's healthier regardless and I probably need it to support progressing with chin ups and push ups. Aside from protein it'll be better for nutrients.
Live and learn, eh?
