5kg in one month gain

Challenge for April 2017: Gain 5kg I am 75kg and i should eat 250g of protein on non-workout days and 330g on workout days.

The challenge has obstacles: first i played in tennis league, second i biked my children to/from school (20 minutes ride), third the first weekend i had school barbeque which ruined my initial fasting plan.

Additionally to my main goal i will have side help/goal with Intermittent Fasting


Clever things i did:

  1. tested the diet few days before the starting of sports. Bought all daily food and counted the proteins only. (next time would count the calories, carbs and fats as well. Before the experiment my weight was around 75.5kg, but i gained 1kg easily in testing mode)
  2. hired a personal trainer in a gym for €200/month. (yes. Las Palmas is cheap). Sometime i felt like not going to gym, but having commitment to the person forced me to go.

Things that would do different:

  1. Is there a point of 1 day fasting? How exactly it should be done and for what reasons? (if it is for the ketones: buy a ketones measurement device)
  2. prepare food for 3 days in a row. know the exact menu what you will eat. Buy low sugar protein bars.

i tried the fasting for first 2 weekends and i didn’t see any positive impact.
