Robert, during a typical nutrition day as you posted above, when do you do your workout sessions? I assume your timing and what you eat at each meal reflects that.

I often workout around 5PM. So I get that snack in around 4PM and hit the gym from 5-6:30 and come home and eat.

Those aren't exact times that I eat, but a breakdown of my typical schedule when I can stick with it. It all depends on work and other things going on, but I always get in food every 2-3 hours, even if it is just a quick Vega bar or Clif bar, just some sort of fuel.

But I do like to stick to a program like this to get X amout of protein and X amount of calories throughout the day.

Sometimes I workout at 8PM so I just plan meals around it.

Before training I pretty much only like to eat fruit (bananas, apples and oranges being my favorites) and sometimes and energy bar. I don't like to have a full stomach but I like to have that energy from those foods. After a workout, I'll eat quite a bit. Sometimes I don't have much of an appetite after training, it depends on the workout. But gotta eat, so I get it done.

I'm the same way...planning what u eat and when to eat really helps. But sometimes is so easy to get stuck in a rut when u find a good plan. That tends to be my problem.

No kidding! Eating in and of itself is like a full-time job! I've added a lot more food to what I was previously eating, so now I eat at least 6-9 times a day. I always carry food with me... had to buy a bigger purse to accomodate it all! :D

Oh!!! I finally know for a fact that I actually CAN cook! :D LOL... I made a pizza tonite and it ROCKED! (Usually, I SUCK at cooking----case in point: I've burned pasta, tofu, and even soup. :shock: Most of my pans have burned food permanately crusted onto them. Yeah, with my cooking skills, I'm going to make my future husband very happy, lol!!! :oops: ) However, the pizza was yummy and didn't burn (AMAZING!). I used spelt pizza crust, sauce, tofu, spinach, mushrooms, and vegan cheese. YUM!

I LOVE VEGAN PIZZA!

I look forward to eating it once I finish competing this spring. Nice job on the cooking. I'm terrible. I can't really cook anything.

A few years ago I could cook a bit, and bake too, but those years are behind me.

Maybe I'll be good at it again someday.

Anyway, eat up!

My cooking skills have taken a bit of a regression as of yesterday. Case in point:
I was making my Famous Vegan Pizza (one of the only things I know how to make), and I not only managed to set off the Smoke Dectector, but also burned a good chunk of my forearm in the process. (At least the pizza was Delicious!!!) Needless to say, I'm done with cooking for a while and instead will resort to gorging on hummus, tofu, salads, and nut butters. The Raw Vegan Diet is looking more appeasing by the minute! LOL

I know I've been asked, and I think I've posted this elsewhere, but I'll post it here again, where it's supposed to be.

What I typically eat:

A.M.

Fruit - usually apples, pineapple, oranges, bananas, etc. My job is particualrity hectic at times, so I like to eat "fast" foods. How much?? it differs from day to day, but I generally eat 10 -12 pcs of fruit throughout the morning.

Lunch - Fruit, and usually a stalk of celery, or a cucumber, or maybe some brocolli. I used to eat a big salad for lunch, but I found that it makes me lethargic in the afternoon, which effects my work, as well as my daily training

Dinner - now this is the meal that generally changes from day to day. I sometimes have some roasted potatoes, or a vegetable stir fry on a bed of long grain brown rice. Or even a veggie sandwich, and of course lots and lots of SALADS!! quite often I will make myself a green smoothie consisting of 3 bananas, 6 medjool dates, and .5 - 1 lb. of dark leafy greens. YUM!

This is pretty much the average amount that I will have in a day, I've noticed that I have made a change from eating fruits at random to instinctively seeking juicy seasonal fruits.

PostPosted: Thu Jun 08, 2006 12:36 am 
This is how I ate to get my bench up to 370 and squat to 600

Breakfast:

2 bananas before the gym when I woke up...when I got back:
close to a Whole box or cereal
1 carton of soymilk
a couple apples
2 heaping spoonfulls of peanut butter before class

In class diet...about a span of 5hrs:
Pick at a can of nuts
2-3 fruits...whatever I stole from the dining hall
2 very peanut buttery pbj sandwiches

Go to track practice(3-4hrs)

Late Lunch 5ish:
huge salad...atleast a head of lettuce, 2 tomatoes, couple handfulls of mushrooms, as many scoops of chichpeas that wouldn't overflow my tray.
Alot of really lousy vegetarian chilli(the only hot food that was vegan and availiable every day)
1/2lbs of pasta with really lousy marinara and some bread with oil

As much fruit as I could eat for desert

Go home to study...
Aka...skim a little and eat to keep full.

Pic away and eat my daily package of soy dogs

2-4 veggie burgers

Do some technique drills and stretching in my room

Maybe a cheeseless pizza from the local pizza shop or a stromboli

snack on carrots, raisons and nuts

Chug down some soymilk and juice before bed

Go to bed for 4 hours and do it all over again.

About 10,000 calories...sometimes more

breakfast: shake made of unsweetened soymilk, hemp protein, and some frozen berries (sometimes with nut butter or some maple syrup)

snack: another protein shake because it is right after my workout

lunch: some type of sandwich. maybe a low carb wrap with mock chicken salad made of tempeh, avocado, sprouts, and tomato. maybe some german flourless whole grain and seed bread with a marinated tofu cutlet, sliced onion, sprouts, tomato, spinach......

snack: a bowl of vegetable soup with tofu cubes

dinner: stir-fried vegetables and tofu OR high protien pasta with faux ground beef & tomato sauce OR beans in corn tortillas with enchilada sauce and fresh salsa......

snack: another bowl of soup with tofu cubes

i think i am eating too many carbs.

I think your fine on carbs, protein seems good too.
As for hemp protein whats it taste like. I can't at my local grocer and haven't felt like ordering something I haven't tried thats not cheap. Is it a little like flax meal or what...I'll get it eventually but I live in a really christian area and anything with hemp in it is really hard to find.
