Okay so a little background of myself in a nutshell. I used to be into weight lifting and eating tons and getting huge, love it. However everytime track/cross season came around; I lost hella weight. Right now I am about 155 and about 8% bodyfat 6"1. Call me pinner I know, for anyone that has any idea of the significance of these numbers (if any) my PR in the 800m is 1:55.
I thought my diet was pretty good leading up until now, I try not to indulge much (today I kinda splurged; christmas morning got me good haha). However, reading here lately and talking to my buddy, I’m thinking my diet could use a makeover.
I’m lookingn to make my diet basically close to impeccable. Up until now my diet basically has consisted of lots and lots of carbs; I basically live off toast, cereal, and pasta. I’m going to start switching the cereal out for oatmeal or eggs or both because I know it’s not great for you (high in surgar, even though I go for oragnic whole wheat cereals).
I supplement with Fish Oil, CoQ10, Vitamin D, and I drink a lot of green tea (Matcha brew). I also try to get in a ton of fruit everyday. Basically what I am trying to get at is; what should be the staples of my daily diet?
I am thinking the supplements I am using right now, and basically cutting down on the carbs besides before running. I have been reading basically lots of fruits, nuts, and lean meats? I do have a peanut allergy unfortunately, but other nuts should be fine.
Thanks so much,
