I think eating on a fairly consistent schedule will help, coinciding with your workouts. You need protein within 45 minutes to an hour of your workout to help with repair and strengthening of the muscle. I usually eat a banana and drink a protein shake for my post workout meal. The banana is a healthy carb and it replaces potassium.kitkat929 wrote:I do not have specific times I eat
I would do away with the yogurt, lots of bad stuff outweighing the good stuff in that. I love peanut butter, but only the all natural kind (that has to be refrigerated) unsalted. The fewer the ingredients the better.kitkat929 wrote:The food I am eating is apples, bannanas, grapes, light and fit yogart, brocolli, carrots, peas, peanut butter with 100% whole wheat bread, almonds, unsalted peanuts, lightly salted cashews, sometimes I will eat white rice with broccoli.
LOVE sweet potatos with a dab of butter and cinnamon on top. I will make it a meal by adding a grilled chicken breast, sliced 1/2 avocado and a salad. Try replacing the white rice with brown.kitkat929 wrote:i do eat sweet potatoes
Alot of them are. I make my own. It's super easy: 2 tbsps Extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 tsp. lemon juice, tsp red or white wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp of dried oregano and/or basil, 1/2 tsp of minced garlic, mix it all together and drizzle over a salad, top with sliced almonds - it is awesome! And the best thing is that I know exactly what is in it because I made it. I have the powah!!kitkat929 wrote:I get all worried because everyone says salad dressing is bad for you.
7+ hours of sleep is plenty. I usually only get about 6 hrs. And if you are staying up til 2 a.m. and your last meal is at 5p.m. that is a LONG time to go without eating. I would add a small meal at 10 p.m. protein based, no processed grains.kitkat929 wrote:I work at home from 5:30 pm to 2am. I wake up around 9:30 am, but that is without an alarm. My body is just ready to wake up. I have read you need 8 hours of sleep and I have tried to sleep longer but, I just become restless really.
