I'm sitting here eating plain oatmeal after downing about 65g of protein powder this morning. Let's talk about how to really eat for this contest. I usually go out to eat for lunch and it consists of some chicken/fish and steamed vegetables. We need innovation to keep ourselves interested and get the fat off. Any ideas?
Gotta have some variety.
Things that keep me going...
2 cups of cheerios for breakfast, or maybe some egg beaters.
Sipping on a shake all morning, maybe an apple
Lunch... who knows. I keep it healthy but I don't do the same thing every day. It usually involves lots of sliced turkey
I keep a 1lb bag of beef jerky and a can of almonds at my desk for afternoon snacks
Every Sunday I bake a bunch of chicken breasts, so during the week, when all else fails, dinner is a huge chunk o' chicky w/ some brown rice.
Sugar free jello or pudding makes a nice snack.
Diet cherry vanilla DP will kick my sweet tooth.
Of course all of that is throughout a day of work, gym and riding.
My new and improved knee got the OK from the doc at the same time our new years contest at work got going, so I started tracking everything again... For not holding myself to a hard and fast diet I'd say I'm doing ok. I started another spreadsheet for this contest too.
(The gap is the time when I was out of town for a week and a half and was also 'pausing' the work contest b/c the Stangs contest was coming up. Held steady for the break and started back up a few days ago)
