so whats a typical day diet for you?
Well.... *long story follows*
12 eggs (3 before, 9 after workout), 8oz vegetable juice, 8oz low fat chocolate milk, 2 bananas <- these are almost daily consumption items.
Proper breakfast after this might be some greek yogurt, oatmeal, orange juice, maybe a granola bar thrown in there.
Snacks include more granola, raw veggies, berries of all kinds, apples sometimes.
Lunch is generally thrown together. Generally more raw vegetables, tuna, sometimes sandwiches on black rye.
For dinner I eat a lot of wild game since I hunt. Lots of elk and venison, which is cool because I get to eat red meat without worrying about the cholesterol stigma. Sometimes chicken. Lots of cooked vegetables and stuff like corn, squash, beans, really simple stuff like that.
I stay away from excessive caffeine and don't take supplements either. Not only do I think it's hard on the body, but I'm cheap anyways and don't see the need to waste money on stuff like that. I eat a lot of shrimp and other seafood as well whenever. Sometimes cold cereal, I eat a lot of multi-grain Cheerios it seems like.
And I eat a lot of all of this crap, it adds up unfortunately. I'm trying to reach 265 and some days I've found that I consume over 10,000 calories. That's a lot of groceries to put away, man. Especially in this economy. I'm like you, I have a fast metabolism that demands tons of food just to put on a single pound plus I'm trying to build up the right way with cardio and speed training so it's not easy but hey, I don't want to be a big, slow guy. I want reality hax athletic ability.
Oh, I also have some 90% chocolate, hibiscus tea, and the occasional glass of red wine as well for heart health. It's hard to say how much it helps with everything else stacked up, but it certainly hasn't hurt my numbers any.
