So, my boyfriend and I have both set a goal weight of 150 lbs. The problem is I'm trying to get there from 185 while he's starting at 135.
I've been fairly sedentary for the past longer than I care to admit, so I'm starting to run (using Couch 2 5K program I think I learned about from someone on these forums) and I found an app that sets caloric goals and helps you track eating. It's day 2 and I'm liking it, though it'll take some getting used to as apparently my eating habits and portion sizes were atrocious.
My boyfriend, on the other hand, can't seem to put on any weight at all. He has been getting back into martial arts (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) for the past 5 months after not having time for a few years and is loving it. He goes to train 3-5 days per week. Without such consistent exercise, he's always been skinny. With it, I swear he's burning calories faster than he can consume them. He wants to build more muscle, so he needs to put on some weight somehow.
We live together and have been trying to cook at home more but it feels like out current dietary needs are incompatible. What can I make that will fill me up at least somewhat without blowing my calorie limit but won't leave him hungry? I know portion size plays a huge role but it seems like things calorie dense enough for him will allow me only a few bites. Is it a good idea to make things that fit my restrictions for dinner and just have him snack a lot and consume things with protein powder?
Has anyone been in a situation like this? Any suggestions gratefully received!
