Default Picky eater

ALright i been working out and dieting for a month now. My problem is im a picky eater and i cant eat like most of the good protien things because ill puke lol. I mainly only eat Chicken eggs tuna and sometimes beef. So anyways i have no idea what kind of things i should make. If anyone has good recipes for those items let me know. My main problem is i go to the gym after work which is at 5:30 6 so i dont get home till usually after 8 leaving me like no time for dinner. So i usually have a shake and make some kinda chicken or tuna thing. But anyways im all ears on suggestions.


Thanks for your help

I got switched to day shift and ran into a similiar problem. I don't get back from the gym until around 8 pm. My routine is to basically drink my postworkout protein shake, then one hour later I have two choices.. It's either cottage cheese or egg whites. Something with slow assimilation of protein because after that meal, I'm hitting the rack. Ideally, I hopefully wake up in the nighttime and down another protein drink, but since I wake up at 3 am, I'm good to go regardless.

I do the same thing hitting the gym in the morning as well. Postworkout protein, then an hour later cottage cheese or eggs. Shortly thereafter is when I begin my massive eating regieme albiet red meat, poultry, or tuna.

I have the same eating schedual, home from the gym between 7 and 8, protien shake with dex(soon to be virtago), then I usually throw down some chicken/shrimp/tuna/salmon with veggies for dinner. I may it up a little cottage cheese before bed, but most of the time I wont unless i'm starving.

As for being picky, all i can say is man up. but you should have no problems with the protien sources you listed.

That really depends on you. Some really heavy and complex meal right before bed might be a little rough on your stomach and keep you up. Remember when your sleeping everything slows down...

Normally if you're going right to sleep you want something fairly light on the stomach. People use cottage cheese, for instance, as a bed-time snack because it's light on the stomach but is still a fairly slow digesting protein. On the other hand I can eat something like chicken breast and go right off to sleep with no problems and just the other night I gorged on a bunch of fried shrimp and hit the sack....so I guess it depends.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
