Hello, it’s February yay, January is finally over and the sun is starting to come out!
In my last post I mentioned that I’m starting the next phase of my ‘diet’ (are we allowed to call it that? eating plan maybe?). So these are weeks 5 – 8 and I thought I’d give it a few days to see how I got on with the change before posting what I’m eating. It’s 6 meals a day like before but with less carbs and more protein. Here’s what a typical day looks like:
Breakfast: 3 egg whites, 4 rashers turkey bacon and 200 grams strawberries
Snack 1: 1 scoop MyProtein powder (as a shake made with water) and a small handful of nuts; unsalted cashews, brazil nuts or walnuts
Lunch: 85grams whole grain rice, 113grams chicken breast, peppers and onions
Snack 2: 2 Kallo rice cakes, 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 20grams cheese
Dinner: 1 corn tortilla, 113grams chicken, 1oz avocado, couple of tomatoes
Snack 3: 1.5 scoops MyProtein powder (as a shake made with water) and 2 squares Green and Blacks 75% dark chocolate
Macros: 1470 calories, 105 carbs, 50 fat, 150 protein
I scramble the eggs in the microwave at work in the morning, much to my workmates delight at the smell! Everything else is batch cooked on Sunday and Thursday nights for the days ahead.
Also, the chicken isn’t always chicken, it can be an equivalent protein weight of fish, prawns or even turkey – how’s that for variety?
So far I haven’t felt hungry at all and still have the energy for weights in the morning and cardio in the evening. Looking forward to posting some progress pics at the end of Feb 🙂
