Depending on how big you are and how much you train, that doesn't look like alot of food. Also you need more veggies and a PWO shake would be a good idea to help recovery. Check out some of the links in the FAQ sticky, they should get you started pretty good.

Yea add some veggies and fruits are great...but i consulte other health trainer that sometimes you dont need shake anymore...they say it's only a hype :confusedsmilie: ...but if you have a extra money take it.

Nah if you are training hard you need a whey protein shake and some high GI carbs. It's been shown to improve recovery/protein synthesis greatly. That and whey protein is dirt cheap.

But not in my place in davos, switzerland and especially in asia (the place that i was grew up), the prize of whey protein there are gold. :ahh:

P.S. I am 100% agree with you on taking protein for recovery...im just talking to those people who have same sitaution like mine.

Yeah in that case your best bet would probably be some chocolate milk post workout. It's not optimal but it's good enough to not warrant spending an arm and a leg for whey.

A delicious low fat swiss chocolate milk is a big boost for my energy...i take that before and after workout...it helps.

In general Mercury poisoning isn't too much of a concern if you buy quality fish.

Although this does bring up the point that you should get some blood work done at the doctors office about once a year or so and see if there are any deficiencies/problems. The mercury issue would be picked up there if there was a problem and them you could adjust accordingly.
