Hello people! I can see the thread is always busy, my Dear Doctor Flanagan has always something interesting to say in order to help others and so on. It's all good. A true blessing I should say.
I m always around too. I can't just disappear since this is the place I gained my life back. And what a life...
Anyway, I m doing terrific, I m always working with Dr Michael Koontz and all in all, neurological problems are history for me. Except when I need an adjustment that is which is still an every three month routine or something like that.
Dear Doctor Flanagan, thought I 'd send you an email about this but on the other hand who knows, others might be interested. It has to do with nutrition but it has nothing to do with MS or any kind of disease on that matter.
As you may remember, I m lifting weights. I used to do it for years before I got sick and now, after you gave me my life back, I m back on track.
The thing is that this time things have gotten serious meaning that my body is adapting better than before for some reason. Lately, I m gaining muscle mass really fast and I m lifting more and more to the point I m surprised. Surely it has to do with uplifted mood up to a point and who knows what else.
So, I would like to hear from an expert (I know you know everything about diet too), what I should eat in order to keep building muscle without gaining too much fat.
For now, I don't eat white bread and sodas which for me is a real accomplishment. I gave up on coffee too since I must drink 3 litres of water per day so there is no time for coffee. I have also started eating breakfast (corn flakes). Last but not least, I take whey protein as a supplement post workout so my body can recuperate after an intense workout.
Dont get me wrong here. I dont expect you to plan a detailed diet for me. I just need you to throw a few ideas on the canvas and I think I ll finish the painting on my own. For example I was thinking chicken breast, brown rice, beef, black bread, vegetables and fruits (bananas), yogurt, eggs, tuna and...?
Also, how foods should be cooked?
Any kind of oil like olive oil?
I think you got the idea. I need the protein but I cant afford to eat trash. My body has to be transformed in some kind of machine inside out and I know you know the way to do it.
I really really hope I m not a total idiot over here. It is just that I thought something different wouldn't hurt.
