Lena's food & training log

#1 Postby Lena01 » Wed May 21, 2008 2:29 am

Hey guys! How is food going? I tried to arrange a 'serious' plan for myself. It'd be awesome if you can help me arrange it or whatever. I still have a lot to learn but don't want to learn it from the butcher.

This is how it should look like. It's just some kind of structure because I find it difficult to stick to something like this. I will try though!! Any suggestion is most welcome:

--------------------grams------kcal-----percentage
Total Carbs------250------1000------50%
Total Protein-----130-------520------26%
Total Fats----------53-------480------24%
Total Intake----------------2000-----100%

7:00 Breakfast
1 cup Soy milk
1 cup oats
1/2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp Flax seed
Cinnamon!!

10:00 Snack
1 Apple
15 g Pecans
200 ml Pom&Blu Juice
2 scoop hemp (in juice)

11:00 Workout
13:00 Post-wo/Lunch
100g Red Kidney Beans
1 stalk of celery
1/2 cup blueberries

16:00 Snack
1 Tangerine by LZ
100g Tofu
1/6 cup Filberts

19:00 Snack/Supper
1 cup Soy Milk
1 scoop hemp
1 kiwi :D

20:00 Going to bed snack
1/2 cup Soy Milk
Sprouted Whole Grain Cereal 1/2 cup
2 scoop hemp

[By the way how can I post it with HTML format? I converted the original version to HTML but I couldn't post it] :?:

Everything looks pretty well planned out. Very Nice! Omega 3's and everything. :)

I would recommend more vegetables though.

Kiwi's are always a great addition. :D

just echoing what zack said. it looks very good but you can't go wrong with more greens.

looks good.
Personnally I would say : raise the carbs (250gr is not a lot) and lower the proteins intake, 80gr would be enough and it would even be a "safety" amount.
At 130gr proteins and more per day, the bones and teeth decalcifiate, no matter how much calcium you would eat or even if taking astronomic amounts of calcium supplements.

Thanks guys for the advice!!!

Zack and johan, I was actually thinking about the same thing. I actually buy some other stuff that is not included in the plan (kiwi, lettuce, broccoli, cucumber, tomato, peppers...) and I want to eat them as an alternative option to many things in there.

I'm your man, merci pour ton conseil. Peut-etre que je fasse comme tu dis. J'ai beaucoup a apprendre encore et je ne savais pas ce que tu m'as explique. (Excuse les accents, mon kb est en anglais).

no problem. Your French is good!
They're right, fruits and greens are the way to go.
About proteins, the thing is:
out of your 520 calories of proteins per day, your body will use 1/3 of it (175 calories) only to digest and break down those proteins, simply because they're harder to digest than carbs. So that's not really useful, it's energy that you lose and you'll feel tired. If you wanna workout, focus on carbs.

A diet high on protein is for those who wanna lose weight, most of the calories they eat is getting use only to digest this food so it's like eating even less calories.
Anyway, we can lose weight on any diet, even entirely on sugar from fruits, besides it gives full of energy instead of feeling tired.

Oh today I realized I'm eating like a dude. I'm not that big for so much food! Now I remember my best friend who once told me "omg my new boyfriend eats so much! well he eats almost as much as you!". Bad thing is that she wasn't joking :?
So yes, I'm going to cut back a little bit. But I'm going to write what I eat also, so I can see if I'm really eating less.

Today:

breakfast: oatmeal w/peanut butter & flaxseed, also cinnamon

workout

soymilk w/hemp. handfull of pecans, some filberts

went to the theatre and back at 6:
more pecans, more filberts. sprouted cereal (i finished the box :shock: ) with soy milk

2 apples

apricot, blueberries, grapes, pecans (i think i like them 8))

celery

tofu

tangerine

tofu, celery (11 pm)

Self-note: Yea, I'm probably eating more than my brother. And very randomly, there's no organization. I have to be as consistent w/ my diet as I am with the gym.

I'm not consistent with my diet either, although it is stricter than most.
I probably don't eat enough, which is my problem.
On work days I graze throughout the day.
I don't count calories, I hate it and find it to be a pain in the ass

Same thing here. That's why I made up a plan so I could follow it and know how are things going. But I'm finally eating whatever comes to my mind.

Today I kept myself eating each 3 hours from 11am until now. I put a paper on my fridge and wrote everything down. I also drank plenty of water and 2 cups of tea because I'm studying. Sunday is day off from the gym since last week.

11:00 am Oatmeal & orange juice w/ hemp powder

Tofu and pecans. More juice w/ hemp

1 pear. filberts. 1 tangerine

Dinner: carrots, radishes, broccoli, pecans, filberts, 1 plum, 1 apple, raspberries (that was lot of food!!!)

10:00 pm tofu and some blueberries

Gone to bed due to chewing-gum-like brain.

Oh I did this today in one of my breaks:

Sometimes I will log my calories in fit day...or the daily plate works good...calculates every thing for you...also tells you what you burned off in exercise...although they usually go overboard with that number... I usually subtract a few hundred to get a real number. Sounds like a good plan to me:)

Have read it in a French book that provided sources. I don't have the book anymore but I made a quick research, talking about it on the notmilk.com website, http://www.notmilk.com/o.html
I'm gonna search for more links soon.
