does anyone have any tips/resources for meal prepping based around a workout? I've been relatively consistent (spotty weeks/months here and there) with the 5x5 program I've been doing since last HTFUF and I feel like the biggest thing standing in my way of gains now is my shitty diet/eating schedule. I'd like to start meal prepping but it's a daunting task for me. I like to cook but with holiday/MAG craziness, I haven't had much time to cook anything.
I'm also thinking for HTFUF, I'm going to start Muay Thai, which is something I've wanted to study for over a decade now and have been thinking seriously about starting for months. So I want to get a better diet going and I think meal prep is the way to go

Same. I haven't lifted since I had to stuff my garage before the move. Finally got the rack set up at the new house and I'm ready to see how many gains I've lost :/
Set a 1 RM of 120 for overhead press. Not too shabby for six or seven weeks off

yo, that is impressive as fuck. my OHP is absolute trash. I've been trying to tweak my workouts slightly to get it up, but the max I've been able to get 5x5 is 95. I can do more single rep ones but haven't really attempted a 1RM. You'll be at a plate 1RM in no time!!

I gained 7 pounds in 10 days this month, now I'm back at pre-parasite weight I'm afraid if I gain much more then eating will become a chore. I also need pro tips for making bachelor chow, I need a weekly ritual where I prepare meals in advance.

Chili is super easy and keeps for awhile, especially in the freezer!
Crockpot or stovetop works, baked too. Google for cooking times, but crockpot is obvi the longest...
Stovetop you can do it all in one pot, too.
3-4 cans beans (I like to mix different types cus it looks pretty)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste (optional, but I like that stuff)
.25 - .5 lbs meat (Hot Italian sausage is my favorite, but ground beef or turkey, or other cuts totally work. Or do it meatless.)
1 small onion, diced or bigger pieces, your call
a few cloves of garlic
1.5 to 3 tbsp chili powder
salt to taste AFTER EVERYTHING ELSE
Brown your meat with the cut up onions thrown in. When the meat is brown and the onions translucent, just throw everything else in. Canned stuff first, including the liquid. Dry spices after. Heat it til it bubbles, then simmer for an hour or more. Add a little salt, taste it, add more if you need to.
Enjoy over rice, on cornbread, by itself, whatever the fuck you want, because it's your beautiful meal.
Enjoy the toot-factory you used to call home/work
I like adding beef broth, and I add fresh hot peppers when I brown the meat. That'd also be a good time to add bell peppers, if you like.
A can of corn adds a nice texture, but don't use the liquid from it! That shit's too sweet...
Garlic and onion powders are good in chili, even in addition to fresh garlic and onions.
Pingo is pretty good at meal prep. I like to cook several times a week, but big portions give me lunch for the next day and possibly dinner.
Oh, and cook rice in advance! Fried rice is pretty easy to make, and variations on what goes in it can keep it interesting. Day+ old fridge rice doesn't stick to the pan like fresh rice does.
You can sub broth for the water when you cook it, too.

Bros, here's the secret to great home chili: add a small bar of semi-sweet chocolate. I know, I know. It sounds crazy, but I tried it and it's fantastic. Think of a typical Hersey's bar and use like, one quarter of it. You don't end up tasting it, it just adds that little extra something.
