As promised, today I wanted to post what a typical day of food looks like for me 8 weeks out from my competition. I will start by saying that this is in NO way a diet for you to follow or some magic protocol that will help you lose weight. As individuals, we all need different macronutrient requirements and I can guarantee what works for me will be completely different to you! Also, please take into consideration that I am literally prepping for a competition with a set date… my numbers are quite low. Now that that’s out of the way, lets get to some food photos!
I had a pretty hectic day today and by the time I trained I had only consumed two meals! I felt fantastic though and had tons of energy so hence the reason I pushed some of my meals back today.
Meal 1: Vanilla oats with 3 english toffee stevia drops with 1/2 serve The Peanut Butter & Co ‘Mighty Maple’ peanut butter topped with maple syrup. Nespresso coffee capsule and skim milk on the side.
Snack: Regular skim latte with an equal (please note name, lol).
Late lunch: Turkey salad with kale, alfafa sprouts, cucumber, corn, beetroot, soy roasted asparagus and mushrooms topped with dill and 97% fat free mayonaise (life saver).
Post lunch: Green tea, Powerade Zero and 1 serve of 70% Lindt chocolate.
Post gym: Blueberry oats with 10g vanilla protein powder, 40g blueberries, light whipped cream and maple syrup. 70g chilli/lemongrass squid with random salad topped with apple cider vinegar and soy sauce (not pictured).
Dinner: Pork mince with asparagus, pumpkin, pasta sauce and cheese.
After dinner snacks: Sweet and salty popcorn with a full bowl of ‘Jelly Lite’ and some strawberries I’m about to measure out.
Liquids: About 3 litres plain water, 1.25 litres Xtend and 1 scoop C4 pre training
SO, this is what I ate today! I am forever changing and substituting things because that is the beauty of flexible dieting… I have the choice! For example, I just prepped my meals for the week as I go back to work tomorrow (I actually have a job I swear) and prepared oats with peanut butter for breakfast, latte for snack with a fruit stick, san choy bow for lunch with some popcorn, pork/pasta sauce/cheese with an apple for afternoon snack, oats with whipped cream for post workout and the rest of my macros will be filled with dinner (lean meat and salad probably) and other snacks!
I will be doing one of these weekly from here on out to show the changes I will be making and also to give ya’ll some ideas of how to make food extra tasty without the added calories!
All ze love in the world, Schae X
