I was talking with a couple of our members last week about what I eat. A few weeks ago we had a nutrition seminar at the studio and a few people were asking me that same question.
It’s kind of a complex answer as I’m constantly adjusting my nutrition and trying different things in terms of timing, etc.
This is not what I recommend to you because that’s not your job. I’m constantly experimenting with different tactics but I’m always keeping similar frameworks in my style of eating.
Here’s a little peak into my daily nutrition and what I’m doing now.
5am or 6am- wake up and perform my 5 minute neural warm up/mobility circuit. After that I’ll have:
1 serving of Prograde Genesis
1 cup of non-fat Fage Greek yogurt mixed with 1/2 cup of frozen cherries (I mix this the night before and then the cherries are thawed in the morning)
1 serving of Prograde Workout
Approximately 200 calories made up of protein and fats. Usually this is 4 ounces of lean meat and a small serving of nuts. I’ll also do a small salad or some mixed cut veggies
Protein shake mixed with water and 1/2 tablespoon of flax oil (healthy fats)
Another protein shake if I’m at the studio or if I’m home I’ll have something similar to my 11am meal
3-4 ounces of lean meat (usually chicken, pork or a filet) and unlimited veggies and a big salad with 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar/1 tablespoon of olive oil
For beverages I’ll drink about 80 ounces of water and probably 4 days per week I’ll have 1 cup of black coffee in the morning.
The whole premise of my nutrition plan is that I’m eating my first two meals with low glycemic index carbs (basically from fruit and from my pre-workout shake). There are no starches at all. This works out perfectly because both of these are pre-workout.
Then later in the day my focus is completely on protein, veggies and healthy fats. I’m splitting my meals into really small portions, about 200 calories. This keeps my energy high without getting sluggish.
Also I’ll have a cheat day on Saturdays although in January I have eliminated all sweets so I still have another week to go. That’s tough for me but I really wanted to drop some body fat over the next few months.
If you’re looking to get some of the best supplements around, I highly recommend Prograde. You can certainly use other stuff but with myself and many of our other clients I’ve found they are the best.
