I'm asked quite often what I eat??? I'll list below what I'm eating today. This is a fairly typical menu for me during the week.
Breakfast- whey protein shake made w/ soy milk (8 oz)
Snack- lightly salted rice cakes (2) w/ peanut butter (1 Tbsp)
Lunch- five-grain beef & veggies (frozen meal) less than 300 calories, baby carrots (15) w/ rice vinegar (1 Tbsp)
Snack- medium pear, protein snack bar (110 calories)
Dinner- chicken stir fry made w/ 4 ounces skinless chicken breasts & various veggies
H20- 100 ounces throughout the day
I usually have popcorn after dinner as my evening snack but I'm trying to limit myself to having it 5 days per week instead of 7 :-). This day totals around 1300 calories including my vitamins. My recommended caloric intake to reach my weight loss goal at around 2 lbs per week is 1200-1550 calories per day. On days that I have an exceptionally harder workout I do go over my limit to refuel properly. I gradually worked my way down on calories cutting back a little at a time. A drastic change initially left me feeling like I was starving. I had to learn what worked best for my body.
