Based on what I’ve seen on myself and on others, I believe exercise is the easy part for fitness, compared with nutrition.
If you think of it like a vehicle, exercise is the body of the car. Yes, it looks really big and important but in reality, it is just a shell. Nutrition, on the other hand, is the engine and the wheels, without it, the car simply can’t run~~~!
With that, some of you asked me to share my daily meal plan on top of my daily workout routine, and here it is:)
For my training days, I normally have 6 meals. I tend to eat quite a bit for my breakfast, as shown in the picture, egg white omelet is my another morning “must-have” *_^
Meal 1: (breakfast)
1 cup of cereal with soy milk
15 grams of natural peanut butter （PB2 doesn’t work:)
4-5 slices of turkey breast
1-2 pieces of whole grain bread
3-egg white omelets with veggies and chicken/ham
1 cup of coffee soy cap with 3 shots!!
1 ounce roasted almonds
1 scoop of protein shake
chicken or turkey salad or sandwich
1/2 banana or 1/2 apple
1 cup of carrot celery juice
1 cup of coffee soy cap
Meal 5: (during/post workout)
1 scoop of chocolate protein shake
a few whole grain crackers
a piece of dark chocolate
whole wheat pasta or brown rice
Non-training days meal plan will look pretty similar with a bit less calories.
Again, no matter your fitness goal is to lose weight or to build muscle, appropriate nutritional intake is the most important thing.
