I eat around every 2 hours…

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: 

6am: Wake.

630am: Gym for an hour (weights).
No food until after the gym.  Water throughout workout. 

730am: Breakfast:
Alpen Porridge
2 slices of wholemeal toast with mushed up banana
Pineapple juice
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.
Muller Rice. 

230pm: Snack:
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!!)

    One thing to remember with Fish Oil is that it isn’t the total fats that is the key, but the total EPA+DHA. A lot of the lower quality products claim something like 2g of fish oil, but only have 300mg of DHA+EPA. Also don’t really need n6s – you get a ton of those from meat (thus why we need to supplement n3s via fish oil).

    We’ve collected a lot of the research if you want to learn more: http://examine.com/supplements/Fish+Oil/
