Whatcha Eatin’ Back There?
I am a naturally lean person. People have called me skinny my entire life….which is true. They have said its unfair that I have a high metabolism and they don’t, or I’m a young male so it’s easier to stay skinny. Both of those do have some truth behind them. However, while I do have a couple advantages behind me, I whole heartedly feel that the way I eat keeps me looking the way I do. Since most of my time is at work and most of my food is here, I will share with you what in the back room.
Appliances: Microwave, coffee pot, small fridge, blender, shaker cups, silverware, and paper plates.
Proteins: Eggs, greek low sugar yogurt, tuna and salmon packets, protein powder, and typically something from last nights dinner that I brought to heat up.
Veggies: Tomato, cauliflower, broccoli, celery, greens salad mix, greens powder (awful!).
Carbohydrates: Apples, frozen berries, gluten free oats, rice, gatorade.
Fats: Olives, olive oil, almond butter, heavy cream (for coffee), avocado, guacamole, almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts, chia seeds
Miscellaneous: Coffee (of course!), Creatine monohydrate, sea salt, pepper, vitamin D, fish oil capsules.
As you can see, I am a naturally lean individual, but I could eat anything in that back room in near any quantity (within reason) and not gain fat. It’s mostly all whole foods. Occasionally I will splurge on some certain foods to get more calories in on busy days.
Here’s a sample day:
515am – coffee with cream
9-10ish – 3 eggs, salad (yes i get plenty of weird looks) and occasionally oatmeal + berries
12-1 ish 2 Tuna/Salmon packets, rice, 1/2 avocado
3-4ish – Super Shake and nuts
530- Head home for dinner which is usually a meat 1-2 veggies and potentially a carb.
