Meal Plan #4

I am currently in an 8 week phase to gain strength, I started at 208lbs with the goal of reaching 220-225lbs (but strength is most important).  My cardio and ab work is lower during this phase, my workouts are shorter and the diet is not as strict (giving my body and mind a rest).
You'll notice that I eat similar foods every day, I do this for two reasons:  I like the foods and it is simple.  The simpler your diet is (predictable) the more likely you'll stick to it, I am busy and don't have a million dollars to hire a personal chef and trainer or all day to contemplate my meals.  I eat on the go, I make my meals in the morning (sometimes the night before) pack them in my cooler and hi hoe hi hoe off to work I go.

Meal Plan gives you 2800-3200 calories, depending on different brands, portion sizes, etc.
