I’ve written a little about what (and how regularly) I eat before on here and I thought I’d give you a taster of what an every day of eating is like for me.
The premise of my eating is: A little, often. Very often in fact. 🙂
I don’t like to be hungry, but in the same way, I don’t like to be stuffed. I eat mostly at my desk at work, breakfast in my kitchen, dinner in front of the telly. I usually eat roughly every two hours, and I try to drink as much water as possible when I’m at work or working out.
I do eat a lot, but I also burn a lot of calories (around 5000-6000 a week), so need to food to keep me fuelled. 😀
Here’s my routine and food for today:
630am: Gym for an hour (weights).
No food until after the gym. Water throughout workout.
2 slices of wholemeal toast with mushed up banana
1 Centrum Performance Multivitamin, 1 x 3,6,9 omega fish oil.
Prepare food for the day to take to work.
(If I’m not training, or sometimes if I am, I might only have porridge and fruit juice, with no extras)
10am: Bagel and nutella or peanut butter or cottage cheese.
12 noon, or 1230pm if I can hold out: Lunch:
Salad with meat and egg and tasty salad dressing.
Tracker Bar or Go Ahead biscuits or Muller Rice if I didn’t have it with lunch.
430pm: Pre gym snack:
Cashew nuts (80g)
530pm: Gym for a 25 min run or upper weights workout.
600pm: Bodypump for an hour.
Chocolate/protein milkshake after Bodypump.
730pm: Sit down to dinner:
Chicken Noodle Stir Fry.
And if I’m still hungry I’ll maybe have a bowl of cereal, some greek yoghurt or some chocolate later on (need to stop the chocolate snacks though!!)
