    Nutrition Help

    So I live in the UK and currently am in lockdown which forces me to workout at home which is fine as I have invested in all the basic Olympic equipment for Maintaining/Growing from home.

    My only struggle is that since the start of second lockdown which was a few months back I fell into a foggy mind and my goals and ambitions were all over the place, but I am trying my best to put that behind me.
    I Have lost a bit of muscle and I understand this but where I am putting myself back into a mindful and dedicated state to train and grow I want to make sure I am getting the best out of my nutrition.

    My question is that, I work 1-10 most days with 1 day off a week, and I was wondering if it would be beneficial for me if I was to just cram in foods that come easily to me for example Chilli ConCarne, Pasta, Cereal, Toast, Mass Gainer, Protein Shakes ect to put on size, I just want to try and put some more size and strength on to eventually get back to where I was and once lockdown is over go back to the gym and progress onward from where I left off.
    Thank you everyone for reading the post, all comments will be put into mind, Thank you

    If you are actually talking about bulking without lifting at all, then NO. You're just piling on the FAT if you do that.

    What matter is the total nutrients.

    If you go way over on calories consistently then you could gain excessive fat.

    If you tend to go under on calories, you will lose weight and not progress in the gym.

    If you underdose protein, you are leaving gains on the table.

    So if you want control, you have to at least have an idea on total calories and total protein grams...

    Eating lots of meat, eggs, lower fat dairy, beans and whole grains can help but just letting your appetite be your guide will probably lead you to the same place you are now - homeostasis.
