I have the Whey protein, and I make my daily protein shakes, and I try to stick to smaller meals, realistically I go about 5-8 throughout the day. I try to eat more chicken, steak veggies etc. I was just wonderin what are some examples of everyone elses daily meal plans. (Healthy ones only please) Thanks.
I've started my own meal plan that has been working for me over the past few weeks. I started my diet and weight training 4 weeks ago and i'm finally starting to notice some changes.
Here's a basic overview of my meal plan and one should note that I didnt research any particular plan, i just took advice from my peers who are in good shape:
6AM: Lift and run
7:30 AM: 2 egg whites and a bowl of fruit (usually strawberries and grapes)
9:50 AM (when my first class is over): Munch on a protein bar
11:00 AM: Apple and then go to morning bjj class
2:00 PM: Tuna Sandwich on wheat or a bowl of beef&bean chili (Props to clint)
6:00 PM: 1 Boneless skinless chicken breast or 2 small fish filets (frozen kind you can get at wal-mart, sams, etc), some kind of greens-sometimes a bowl of english peas or 2-3 celery sticks, spinach, whatever you prefer really and a few pieces of fruit (usually strawberries and grapes)
after 6 i may eat half a protein bar but nothing more than that. i try not to eat after 6 and that's hard because i LOVE to eat...especially late night munchies
but yea im not on any strict diet or anything. I've been taking bjj for a while but that just wasnt enough...i'm dieting and exercising more for appearance, not for competition or anything like that. But yea it's been 4 weeks since i've started and i've lost some weight, starting to lose a little bit of the belly finally. Honestly man, if you're not going by a strict diet from a nutritionist or a diet out of a health magazine of some kind, it's just trial and error.
try a diet for a month or 2 and if it feels like it's working, keep at it. men's health magazine has some AWESOME recipes for meals that are extremely tasty. you could try that
edit: i should also mention that i allow myself to cheat once a week my battering up my fish or chicken and frying it to a golden brown crisp...mmmmmmm mmmmm so damn good!
