    Go to www.myprotein.co.uk

    You can buy powdered carbs on there if that's your bag.

    I use the powder for those occasions when my calorific intake from regular meals wont keep up with the energy I need to train on.

    There are a number of different brands. Many of them contain added extras like Guarano and caffeine or Creatine. The amount you will need to take means that you dont want to be involuntarily taking on Guarano etc at the same time. I like these supplements but I have mine in seperate preparations so I can control how much I take.

    Consequently I recommend you buy a pure 100% complex carb like this-

    If you want to try Creatine I find it particularly good for speeding recovery during high training spells. However you need to read about it first.-Eg dont mix it with fruit juices and manage your preload/maintenance properly and every couple of months take a break from it.

    Lastly I would suggest you take protein as well. If you have plenty in your system your body will have it's building resources ready.

    I reiterate you are looking at going in very hard-You need to do some research and make sure you profit from it and don't wind up hurting yourself.

    I know this amount of training is taking a toll on my body and getting injured is one of my biggest concerns. In the past I have trained in such a high intensity but never over such a long period of time (training camps usually last not longer than 5 days).

    The answer, based on that, is "Yes."

    As far as supplements, "tips", and "hints" go... think of your diet as a house. Your house is falling apart. There are holes in the walls and roof and damaged supports.

    Taking supplements = putting in a hot tub.
    Tips and hints = paint and wallpaper.

    What I'm saying is that you need to look at things structurally. What you eat, what's in what you eat, how much of it you eat, and when you eat it. What you do (physical activity), how much you do, when you do it. How you feel throughout the day. Any health concerns you may have (diabetes, insomnia, anemia, etc).

    You need to knock that bitch down and build a new place from the ground up, not just redo the bathroom.

    The level of strain you are going to be putting on your body is easily quadrupled what you are putting it through now.

    Be prepared to spend more money, dovetailing into your previous thread, on things like tape, ice packs, doctor's visits in addition to increase in food and nutritional supplements.

    The reason cheap food is cheap? They can mass-produce it with lower quality items for more people. The reason good food is more expensive? They actually put more time and effort into it, hence more labor and manhours.

    It is also why cheap food is unhealthy. It tastes like **** so they mask it with salts and sugars.

    Are you going to take a test run, in Germany before travelling to the US, with this new schedule? I would advise it and keep a diary of how often you get hungry and work your meal schedule accordingly.

    Just like you will need to have a training schedule you will need a meal schedule as well. Like some of the other posters suggested SUPPLEMENT (not replace) your meals with the items they mentioned (protein powders, carb powders, creatine powders) to have along with a well-balanced, nutritional meal.

    A place like Burger King once a week or once every other week is fine as a treat or as a cheat, but eating there often isn't advisable.

    I think there is a misunderstanding here, I was saying that I don't think about my eating habits that much but I know that stuff like McDs and such is "not the best way to go". I eat there maybe once a month. Mainly because the food makes me feel like crap for the rest of the day, slow and weak. (And the people working there are not able to take a simple order, but that is a different issue)

    As for the rest, I will see if I can come up with a well-rounded, balanced diet plan.
