I'm trying to add a little muscle onto my body after losing a significant amount of fat and dropping down to 10% BF.
My question is: Should I take a whey protein shake in the morning? (6:00 AM) (gold standard double chocolate, if it matters)
I have trouble eating in the morning, as I usually have no appetite. I workout usually at 3:00 PM, and try to eat protein throughout the day. I eat peanut butter jelly sandwiches on wheat bread 2x a day, trail mix (for peanuts and nuts), an apple or banana or two, 10 baby carrots, and I usually come home to putting some chicken on a single slice of wheat bread. Later in the day for my last meal I might have some dried fruit or peanuts (more trailmix) in addition to some grass fed beef.
I don't know if I'm eating enough, which is why I asked my question. I think it might help me reach my goal of 1G of protein per pound I weigh (163), but then again, I don't really know anything, so this hypothesis may have some negative effects I don't know about.
Workout routine: 4 times a week, run for about 10-20 minutes a day, then lift for about 45.
Input? Thanks for reading through this.
*I am currently taking no additional supplements to an occasional protein shake after lifting.
