Your Diet/My Diet

Hey everyone I’d like if anyone could post their diet so I can get some idea’s off of it. Currently I’m eating something like this:

Breakfast - 3 eggs, with onions and ham (scrambled into it), 2 pieces toast, 1 diced tomatoe, cup of orange juice, 1-2 bananas, sometimes 1-2 hashbrowns, and a protein shake.

Lunch - either 2 sandwhiches, or pasta with frozen chicken I cook the night before. Banana.

Mid-day - protein shake, - cant think of a meal need help here

Later in the day - 2 Natural PB sandwhiches with protein shake.

After training - need help here…thinking of potatoes with some kind of meat? (with protein shake)

Before bedtime - 50g’s of almonds and 2 cups cottage cheese.

Other things I consider: I take fish oil 6x a day (2 caps each meal). I also take 1 multiviatmin. I definaetly think I need more veggies/fruit so I’m going to have to maybe make some carrot/cucumber/salad thing to 2 of my meals during the day.

All this will equal over 3000 cals. I’m not trying to bulk here or anything, if I need to bulk I’d just throw in a couple of burgers/pizza and I’d be at 4000+.

Post your own so I can steal some ideas lol or if you’ve thoguht of something else I can use thanks!

How long have you been eating like this, and have you gotten tired of bananas yet?

Breakfast is a shake, which is 1 scoop of whey, 1 scoop Metabolic Drive, 1.5 cups of oats, 1 banana.

The rest of the day its 1 Meat, 1 or 2 veggies, and before night 1 fruit. Change lean meats, vegetables and fruits as often as practicle, and according to taste. That’s the formula. Plug in whatever lean meat and veggies you want. Try to change them up as often as possible for the sake of variety.

Post training meal is 1 Meat, 1 or 2 veggies, and 1 serving of potatoes, sweet potatoes, or rice.

8am - Shake: 3 tbsp natural peanutbutter,2 scoops whey, ice cubes, half an apple a little watter and splenda to taste

10am - whey + carbs during workout
11am - PWO: whey + carbs

12:30 - no fat plain yoghurt (flavoured) with granola, chicken breast in whole wheat wrap with veggies

3:30 - chicken + wild grain rice

6:30 - omlette with full fat cheese and muschrooms, mixed nuts, protein shake

9:30 - morning shake (it tastes delicous)

bed - veggies, natural pb, lean meat (what ever is in leftovers)

ok serious question.

How the HELL do you a.) afford that many Omega-3 eggs, and b.) EAT 10 of them at a time? I consider myself somewhat of a big eater, and I struggle choking down 6 eggs in the morning, with cheese spinach and avocado. I am not even mad. That’s amazing.

A.) Sam’s Club

B.) I really like eggs.

This is a good thread, and it would be very helpful to see what more people eat [and get ideas for meals].

Breakfast: Cottage cheese, Oatmeal + milk and honey, raisins and a banana.

Lunch: Lean meat [beef/chicken etc], roasted veggies [onion + tomato + garlic + red pepper], 3 eggs.

PWO: Protein shake.

Afternoon: Grilled chicken, rice, fruit [usually apple] and lettuce.

Evening: Lean meat or fish, stir-fried broccoli w/dressing, 3 eggs and some fruit.

Bed: Cottage cheese, milk and fruit.

Workout days:
Breakfast
2 packages weight control oatmeal with whole milk
i scoop Metabolic Drive with water
5 caps fish oil
Green tea
Snack:
Black coffee
apple
Metabolic Drive with water
Lunch:
Pasta with lean ground beef
salad with plenty of olive oil
diet coke
Snack:
Metabolic Drive complete or
PB and J on Flax Bread
Dinner:
Lean meat
salad
green tea
Pre-workout:
Ultimate Orange
Post-Workout:
Surge with creatine
Second Post-workout meal:
Cereal with whole milk
Right before bed:
ZMA
30min later
Metabolic Drive with 5 caps fish oil
I switch up whole foods for all the shakes when possible but I’m a desk jockey so it gets hard to eat at my desk all the time.

On non-workout days:
Breakfast
4-5 whole eggs with cheese
1 slice flax bread

and other than that change I stick to mainly fish for meals: either grilled or tuna salad and limit my carbs as best as possible.

My diet isn’t as ideal as I would like but I’m still adjusting to my new job and being piss poor lol.

Damn man you have great food choices!! Man I wish I had the cash to eat like that haha

I love food! And I work as a cook, so that helps. I TiVo the hell outta the food network. Eating is one of the best things in the world (next to trainin’ and fornicatin’). As far as money goes, it’s not that much if you buy in bulk and focus on what’s on sale. Don’t forget that every dollar you spend on food is an investment in yourself.

Nothing new, but here’s mine.

On Sunday’s I shop for the week and get several pounds of assorted veggies - whatever’s looking good and in season. I chop and grill them (in batches … lots of batches) and add some olive oil to each batch when they come off the grill. They all get stirred together and then divided into servings based on what I’m planning for the week and tossed in the fridge. I then grill chicken or turkey for lunches for the week.

A typical day for me is:

(1)Oatmeal, protein powder, splenda and spices
(2)Pumpkin custard (baked - pumpkin, eggs, splenda, spices)
(3)Grilled chicken and veggies with spices
(4)Protein shake
workout
(5)PWO Surge
(6)Lean meat and more grilled veggies

Sometimes I’ll add fruit in the mornings, depending on how I feel when I get up and my workout cycle. If I’m on more of an endurance routine, I’ll do the occasional ww pasta dinner with, you guessed it, meatsauce with veggies (or pasta salad in the summer.)

My family will actually eat the grilled veggies and I stick them in every single weekday meal.

On Sundays I baggie my oatmeal, chicken/veggies, shake powder and pills for the week. That way in the mornings, I just need to grab a pre-set baggie and my custard and I’m set until I get home from work and workout. I go through a lot of baggies. I always have food so I’m not tempted by all the crap that everyone brings into the office.

Simple, easy and convenient. Dinner usually takes less than 10 minutes to cook since a lot of prep-work is already done.

haha yeah wow you definatly eat good. I used to eat 9 eggs every morning when I was 150lbs and I really can’t eat more than 3-4 eggs now lol (whole eggs). I need to change my plan.

I’ve been pretty much following that for i’d say 3 months or so. I’m just trying to get diff. idea’s for food choices now, thats why I made this thread. I’m surprisingly not tired of bananas sometmies I’ll eat 8 a day. I like bananas lol. I’ve always ate a lot of bananas…even when I was really young(I’m 17 now). I’ll try to make more variety in my food. I start buying my own groceries in 3 weeks anyways so yeah lol.

It’s more of an outline since I don’t measure much -

15oz can pumpkin
15oz carton egg whites (for simplicity)
Or equivalent amount of eggs
About 10 packets Splenda (to taste)
Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, mace, allspice, anise, cloves (Pumpkin pie spice would probably work)

Whisk everything together and divide (5 servings for me for work week) into custard cups. Bake in a water bath at 325 for about 45 minutes until slightly firm in the center. Cool then fridge.

Side note - they can get a little moist so I’ve had to top with part of a paper towel before I wrap or have water drips when I open them.

If I can spare the cals, I’ll grind together almonds, a coupla packs Splenda and cinnamon and divide on top for a “crust”.

8am: 6 whole eggs, 2oz. cheese, 1/2c cottage cheese, 1/2c oats (or 2 slices bread)

11am: 8oz meat, 2oz cheese, veggies with EVOO

2pm: 8oz. meat, 2 oz. cheese, veggies with EVOO

5pm: Pre WO shake - 1/2serving Surge
During WO - 1/2 serving Surge

6:30pm: PWO - full serving Surge (with extra protein)

7-8pm: 8 oz meat, veggies with EVOO

6-10 fish oil caps per day, BCAA’s upon awaking, between meals, and before bed. Glutamine pre and post WO, and AM and PM. Creatine PWO.

That’s right. Don’t forget the important stuff.

Maybe everyone knows this but I have no clue…but what is EVOO?
