I’ll post my nutrition plan once I’ve finalised it next week, but it’s safe to say I’ll be adding more carbs into my diet on the days I do strength work and running as below.
Here’s the follow up email (about my nutrition and measurements) I got from ‘Mr Muscle’ after our session today:
So here’s your diet plan, in relation to your training days –
Monday – High Carb: Strength
Tuesday – Moderate Carb: Run
Wednesday – Low Carb: Rest
Thursday – Moderate Carb; Run
Friday – High Carb: Strength
Saturday – Moderate Carb: Run
Sunday – Low Carb: Rest
Let’s trial this for the next couple of weeks, and we can adapt it depending on how you are feeling… there are a lot more carbs than you are used to !
And here are your measurements –
Arm – 25.5 cm
Thigh – 49 cm
Waist – 68 cm
Hips – 93.5 cm
Chest – 79 cm
Body fat % – 18.8 %
Weight – 123lb
P.S. Loving my new nickname 😉
I’ve had a look at the nutrition plan and it involves eating a pre workout snack of natural yoghurt and half a banana before a workout or run, and having more carbs on exercise days, including:
– Oats added to my shakes on strength days.
– Oatcakes and peanut butter.
– Fruit (as part of breakfast/lunch): bananas, sultanas, kiwi, melon, grapes, veg.
– Peas and humous.
– Rivita and tuna / peanut butter.
– Chicken, broccoli, sweet potato
– baked potato n tuna.
