If you’re curious…
here’s what I’ve eaten so far today.
Breakfast, 8am before tutoring: whole wheat bagel (190 cal), plain 0% fat Chobani (100cal)
Pre-Workout, 11:30am: Starbucks grande light coffee frappuccino (110cal) *I don’t usually drink coffee…well I don’t drink “real” coffee…but I was on the run and starving and needed some simple carbs before my workout so this was the perfect pick-me-up :) If you want a frappuccino, it’s the best choice because it’s just coffee, skim milk, ice, and maybe a little syrup but way less sugar than the other frapps
Post-run/pre-strength training, 12:30pm: I was still really hungry (because sugar-filled frosty treats are NOT meals, duh) so I just ate my Pure Protein s’mores bar (180cal) before lifting :)
Post-workout, 2:30pm: Flat Out multigrain wrap (100 cal) with 1TBSP almond butter (90 cal) and 1 cup Kashi Go Lean fiber twigs, soy protein grahams, and honey puffs (140 cal) with 1 cup skim milk (90 cal)
Calories: 1000 Protein: 86g!
Anddd now I’m gonna go make a snack…maybe scrambled eggs and wheat toast?
*For a runner, I eat a lottt of protein. Always 100g+, usually between 100-150g a day. Not all of this is even useful because your body can only absorb about 30g of protein at once, but for me, a high protein diet is what works. I also eat a lot of calories, so even though my protein consumption is really high, it still makes up only about 30% of my intake, which helps avoid putting too much stress on the kidneys :)
*I eat plenty of veggies too! I’m going to put a lot of them in my omlette and I’ll probably have a salad for dinner :) It’s very out of the ordinary that I haven’t had any fruit or veggies yet today
