Take a Snap of Your Food

We see a lot of people posting what they are eating in a written format, wouldn’t it be nice to actually see these food? Most people now a days carry a cell phone with some sort of image capturing capability. Let’s see what you are actually eating…I’ll start. Below are pictures of the food I’v eaten so far.

Background:
My resources are as follows: Muscle Revolution by Chad Waterbury, Precision Nutrition by John Berardi, Nutrient Timing by John Ivy and of course a daily dose of reading from T-Nation.

If I am working out today I will have a serving of Surge at 4 and another one at 6 PM and dinner around 7:30.

Today being Valetines day and not workout day. I will have a low fat yogurt at 6 PM and BIG Valentines dinner at 9 PM. Most likely steak, some side dish, salad, dessert. It won’t be typical but this is one of those special days. :slight_smile:

funny you mentioned this, I was talking to some clients the other day that if writing what they eat is too much, they can just take a quick pic and send to me.
I’m about to fix some V-Day dinner, I’ll take a pic of the meal :slight_smile:

I’m cooking my next meal right now, I’ll upload it in a few minutes.

Edit:let’s see how this goes. This is about 14 oz of steak with what I will describe as a “mess” of vegetables. Some broccoli on the left, 1/2 spinch 1/2 romaine lettuce on the right. With a backdrop of a smudgey(not to self-get windex) glass table and a small part of my foot.

WOW - That looks really good, are you planning on eating all of that food in one seating?

Follow up question - How did you prepare the meat? What kind of meat is that? I am hungry now. Can’t wait for my Valenties dinner at 9. I will definitely have a steak now after seeing that. I snap a picture of the dinner too.

I felt pretty hungry when I was preparing it so I decided to double up what I’d normally eat for veggies. I ate all the steak and broccoli but held off on the salad*I was stuffed) which I’ll use as my veggie for my last meal of the night probably.

It’s top sirloin, and I cooked it with a George Foreman haha. Just put this “steak dust” on both sides and let it cook while I steamed the broccoli. Oh and I had 3 fish oil caps, gotta get those healthy fats in haha.

That was my nice looking meal off the day for sure, a shaker bottle with some whey isolate and olive oil looks like… well like oily milk haha. I had some rinsed off ground beef with some corn earlier and another shake I think, I’ll probably go with chicken for my last meal and finish off that salad.

that steak looked damn good.


um yeah, tasted so good, I didn’t remember to take a pic till the last few bites, lol

damn yall eat some good looking food…making me mad hungry.

I could be wrong but shouldnt you take in protein as soon as you awake not just BCAA and REZ-V? Like maybe whey

I could take some protein as soon as I wake up, in fact I was thinking of adding that if I don’t see any good gains in about 4 weeks. For now, I wait until I get to work until I have breakfast, which usually contains some solid source of protein.


Hahaha- The good old Foreman grill.

I gotcha makes sense, if you dont see any gains I would just have like a small whey shake jsut to get something into you and btw the those grills r so dam convenient

I highly suggest a cast iron pan! Get one with grill marks for cooking up your steaks.
