So,a have a little secret to share. I haven’t told anyone yet, because sometimes when you tell someone something it ends up getting ruined.
And this is something I didn’t want to ruin.
But…I have created a private accountability group with some peers. We have to check in every day and share our workouts. It’s a pretty epic motivator and has been the cornerstone to recovering my strength, my running endurance and dropping some weight.
Anyway, we had the sick idea that we should do a 2 week stint of sharing our macro nutrients and daily food logs too. Ya know…just because we can and we are clearly twisted individuals.
And, in my ever increasingly anal retentive ways, I decided to plan 3 days ahead. I figured after 3 days I could mix and match and squeak by on left overs in the fridge.
But seen as these 1 day meal plans are already done, I figured I would share one with you so you can get an idea of how much protein V carbs one should be eating. Now obviously the below was based on my stats, but still…you can swipe the food ideas:
Breakfast: 2 fried eggs and 1/4 cups kidney beans
Snack: Vanilla protein shake (2 scoops) with 1 cup frozen berries and water.
Lunch: 1 can tuna mixed with 1 tablespoon light mayo and pepper on top of spinach with 1/4 cup kidney beans. 1 orange
Snack: 1/3 cup oatmeal (dry) with skim milk and 1 tsp raw sugar, 1 scoop protein powder.
Dinner: Lentils fried with garlic, onions, herbs and oil with turkey sausage.
So you can see most meals and snacks have some form of protein in. The last snack of the day does not and this one is used to curb nighttime munchies (also, those suffering from thyroid/adrenal issues can use a little carbohydrate a night to assist with sleep patterns).
The point of this meal plan is to hit the macro’s my body needs to continue getting strong, but to lean out too. Combined with the running, the weight training and boot camp, this diet will sustain this goal perfectly.
Now, part of being a member at 10000 Strong Boot Camp is understanding the nutrition your body needs. If you are not hitting your macro’s every day, then for sure you are not losing weight.
In my experience, it’s not that people are eating badly, it’s just they are eating the wrong amounts of fat, carbs and proteins for their bodies needs.
Of course, all this is part of membership and it’s the reason people get such good results when they start training with us. Once you know how much you need, you can stay within your guidelines and even enjoy a cheat meal on the weekend.
The secret to weight loss is consistent and challenging training sessions and consistent and accurate eating habits.
Doesn’t sound so hard does it?
Join us for a 2 week test drive and we can start to narrow down what it is that your body needs, after all..knowing is half the battle 🙂
