“Paul, sure if I eat more vegetables, I’ll hit my goal weight. I’ve heard that before, but really, what magical, top of the line foods do you eat?”
I figured it might be nice to use this time to show you all that I really do practice exactly what I preach. I try to eat very simple meals where I know exactly what is in my food. Here is exactly what I ate yesterday from start to finish:
- Peri-Workout Nutrition
- Lunch (Within 1 Hour of Training)
- 6 ounces Chicken Breast, 2 Cups Gluten Free Pasta, Side Salad, 2 Tbsp Tessemae Balsamic Vinegarette
- 6 ounces Ground Turkey, 2 Cups of Basmati White Rice, 2 Cups Onions and Peppers, 2 Tbsp Guacamole
- 6 ounces Deli Turkey Breast, 2 Pieces Gluten Free Bread, 1-ounce Hummus, 2 Cups Carrot
So the underlying theme is that each meal (except around my workout) had a protein source, a carbohydrate source, a fat source and a vegetable. Keep things balanced and you’ll find your results.
Lastly, I have an extremely high activity level. I train 10-15 hours per week and my occupation has me moving all day. If you throw on top the fact that most days of the week I ride my bike to the gym, I should be eating a ton of calories. This post wasn’t to show how much I eat, but what I CHOOSE to fill those meals with.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
