what i eat throughout a day has slowly been changing over the last year. i'm getting to the point where i eat mostly like a bodybuilder. its radically different than how i ate over a year ago.
waking up - Syntha 6 protein shake. this supplement has protein, carbs, and fat; since my body is starving after 8 hrs of sleep. the only thing i dont like about it is that it has Splenda, but its about the only protein drink i want in the morning.
breakfast - grits with egg whites / egg beaters OR oatmeal with whey protein. for fats i either eat some almonds or add some almond / peanut butter to the oatmeal.
pre workout drink - no-xplode or gaspari superpump 250. sometimes i'll take Animal Cuts as a thermogenic.
post workout drinks - Cell Mass mixed with berries. 15 minutes later i'll have a protein drink.
lunch - usually grilled chicken from Subway, roast beef or turkey from Firehouse, or tuna from Potbelly. wheat bread, without cheese, without sauce, and with all the veggies. these sandwiches have alot of sodium, so i could improve here by eating at home. e.g. some lean meat with a complex carb like sweet potatoes or brown rice.
mid day snack - this changes based on what i'm doing. if i'm cutting, it will just be a protein drink. if i'm bulking, i can mix in oats or fruit. add some almonds for fat. sometimes i have a protein bar.
afternoon meal - lean meat and mixed veggies. almonds for fat. lean meats include chicken, turkey, beef, fish, shrimp.
dinner - lean meat and mixed veggies. almonds for fat.
night time snack - low fat cottage cheese or low fat yogurt.
before bed - casein protein drink. need this to get me through 8 hrs of sleep.
liquids - throughout the day i drink water, decaf coffee, decaf tea, BCAAs drink, greens drink. every once in a while i'll have an 8 oz decaf and diet soda. all of which are 0 or low calories.
