hey guys wassup i just have a couple of questions.
1.can anyone give me a guidline on what athletes eat(ive been eating terribly the past couple of weeks)
2.if it is possible can someone give me a layout on what you eat.(for ex at 6 am, 10 am, 12 pm etc)
thanks in advance[/quote]
Over the years what I have found to work best for me is cycling my carbs intake dependent on what I plan on doing in the gym that day. On a day that I know I will be very active I will load up on carbs stopping usually around 3pm
on a day when I know I will be sedentary for the most part. I will cut out my carb very early on during the day and restrict the amount I take in.
This was my day yesterday. I knew I would be lifting heavy compound movements. I did heavy compound movement :front squats, deadlifts and walking lunges. this is how i ate yesterday.
4:30 am protein shake
7 am bowl of oatmeal 12 egg whites
10 am chicken breast brown rice
12 pm orange roughy brown rice.
3 pm Lamb sweet potatoes
5:30 protein shake while at the gym
7 pm another protein shake with carbs
9 pm orange roughy with vegetables
11:30pm protein shake
Today I will be going light today with shoulders/back…basically standng military press with chins/pull ups and rows
I will follow the same meal plan as above but my carbs stopped at 12pm also …so I will still have the chicken breast, orange roughy, lamb etc without the carbs…
This is what worked for me. Although your body might handle this differently the point is to give you a general guide line to start off with.
