I’ve gotten lots of requests about my diet and what I eat on a typical day. Below is an overview of what I might eat throughout a typical day. Everyday is different so if you guys like this type of post I’ll keep doing them. Let me know what you think below in the comments.
Remember, what I eat during maintance mode isn’t necessarily what YOU should be eating to REACH your goals. This is why it’s taken me so long to discuss or post about my meals. Everyone requires a different diet depending on their goals and how much work they need. This is by no means a strict day. I had carbs with each meal, where if I was prepping for a shoot or something big where I need be be my leanest I wouldn’t be eating as many carbs or any beef- for example.
Post Cardio Breakfast
This is my all time favorite breakfast! Really satisfies and fills me up after a tough fasted cardio session. 3 whole eggs over New Mexican style chili (diced potatoes and turkey sausage with El Pinto’s HOT red chile sauce)(http://www.elpinto.com/shop)
I make this for lunch several times per week. It’s surprisingly really fast to make. Uncle Ben’s instant brown rice, chicken (cut into very small pieces so it cooks quickly in olive oil with minced garlic + onion) topped with my Hot Salsa (I keep a tupperware of it in the fridge at all times. It really makes your bland foods taste so much better: http://www.laisdeleon.net/hot-salsa-recipe/) and diced veggies ( lettuce, tomato bell pepper or whatever I have on hand)
While the chicken is cooking I pop the rice in the microwave and cut the veggies. 10-15 minutes to make tops! I’m all about quick meals cus I’m always hungry and don’t particularly love cooking.
Pre Workout Meal
This is just a quick and easy one pan meal I make all the time: chicken, broccoli, bell pepper cooked over olive oil spray with minced garlic & onion + rosemary, thyme, black pepper and whatever else I might randomly throw in.
I cook pretty much everything with olive oil and I’m not particularly shy with it. As far as healthy fats go, you could say I’m usually lacking and it’s something I should work on. I just dislike avocado, I rarely eat nuts, but I do on occasion add peanut or almond butter to my shakes…
Post workout shake
I don’t usually measure my shakes, I’m usually in such a hurry to blend and drink it after getting home from the gym that I just throw in whatever. The usual: 1 scoop muscle infusion, about half a frozen banana, 1tbs nut butter, cinnamon, and almond milk.
Lean cut steak (seasoned with minced garlic & onion, black pepper cooked over olive oil), asparagus grilled with olive oil, and red skin potatoes (olive oil, chives, garlic)
