I've been doing a ton of reading about nutrition, and I'm trying to burn off some fat, so I've come up with somewhat of a plan, and I could use any advice anyone has. I play ultimate soccer, and if you're not familiar with the sport it basically involves a ton of sprinting.
I'm planning on eating, trying to adhere to jon berardi's macronutrient grouping ideas.
breakfast 8 am:
2 eggs scrambled in canola oil
sausage or bacon
snack at ~10:30
protein shake made with whole milk and flaxseed oil (I'm experimenting with different protein shakes, right now I'm using soy protein powder, no carbs, no fat, but I may switch to whey as I've heard that's better)
Pre-ultimate meal ~4:00
Brown rice with beans and veggies
Dinner around 9:30-
something like chicken with broccoli, maybe some brown rice, basically a low fat high protein and carbs meal
How does that sound? I realize that I should probably be eating more fish, but you have to keep in mind that I work in non profit so I'm totally poor. The same thing explains why I'm eating bacon and/or sausage. I also tend to feel that eating real food in general is better than supplements, so I try to keep them as minimal as possible. I may be slightly high on the saturated fats end, but I'm working on that.
I'd appreciate any advice anyone has. My attempt is to coordinate my meals for when I need energy, so that's why during the week my first three meals are all protein and fat. It feels weird to me to have a shake for lunch, but I think the timing just works better that way when you consider my playing schedule. Thoughts?
