I’m sure this has been a post in the past and if so please direct me there but what is some of y’alls GO TO volume foods?
Something not really too caloric but will fill you up?
How do you prepare them? What do you eat them with? Etc.
Especially during contest preps I love making YUGE salads. An entire bag of butter lettuce is 20cal, like 2g of fiber. Then toss in lean lunch meat like turkey or roast beef, a bunch of vegetables and some 0 cal dressing like Walden Farms. Full for hours on ~150 calories. If your macros allow you to add some cheese and/or bacon for fats, even better.
Ezekiel Bread french toast is another good one, soaked in egg whites. Top with 0 cal Walden Farms maple syrup. 2 slices for 160cals plus a little protein from the egg whites. 3 slices is only 240 cals.
I’m nowhere near contest ready. I just find myself hungry around 8:30, eat at 11, then hungry again around 1:30.
I’m interested in finding filling foods and different ways to make so i stop myself from being hungry at work. A big salad sounds like a great idea!
I’m definitely going to try the french toast this weekend, thanks for your input!
Canned Pumpkin add some Splenda, All Spice and Cinnamon. Honestly my favorite thing to eat tastes just like pumpkin pie a bowls worth is only 15g carbs and most of that is fiber. You can sneak a serving of low fat whipped cream in there also if your feeling glutinous:pig2:
