    Robert,

    I’m planning on creating a “meal plan” document pretty soon in which I write out 15-20 meals or so that I know will help me continue to gain weight and benefit my training. For each of the meals, what macros should I be tracking? Carbs, Protein, total Calories….anything else? Thanks!

    A fine start. Track protein, fat, carbs, fiber, and water/fluid intake.

    Thanks. Robert.
    Do you know of any recipes/recipe lists that have been compiled by SS followers/lifters of the same mindset that you would recommend?

    Depends on the type of food you like. What are you thinking?

    I’m a big fan of casseroles or dishes that I can make and then mix together and eat. But I’m also totally open to other recipes—I’ll take anything!
    I’m currently eating a lot of oatmeal, peanut butter, berries, chicken, rice, and vegetables.

    The simplest way to approach concocting meals is to select one of each of the following:

    A lean protein
    A starch or fruit
    Vegetables
    Fat source

    Then go down the list and start putting things together. For instance, I eat vegetable omelettes with cheese for breakfast with oatmeal and banana cooked in milk. I mix ground beef with bell peppers, onions, mushrooms (shiitake), and kale + cheese, guac, rice, and beans. Big burrito bowl. Good stuff and checks the 4 boxes.
