8 AM:
smoothie (rice milk, frozen banana, blueberries, hemp protein, flax)
cup of tea

10 AM:
Usually a Luna bar

12 PM:
Varies, but it is very often a hearty soup or stew or casserole type thing that combines some kind of legume with vegetables. Nearly always have it over quinoa, now and then over brown rice.

3 PM:
soy yogurt with wheat germ
cup of tea

Dinner (anywhere from 6:00 to 8:30, depending on what I'm doing):
Usually something that also fits the description I have under lunch. Sometimes something different like a sandwich or a burrito or something like that.

That's weekdays, which are pretty consistent due to working. Weekends are often totally different. I am far less likely to have snacks. Sometimes I sleep late and just have breakfast late and have no lunch. I'm more likely to eat a meal out.

I don't do fit day any more, but I used to and I usually got anywhere from 1600 to 1900 calories per day, with an average of about 13-18% protein, 20-30% fat, and the rest carbs.

As much fruit as I could eat for desert

Go home to study...

Pic away and eat my daily package of soy dogs

Do some technique drills and stretching in my room

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

Chug down some soymilk and juice before bed

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

Bigbwii: Did you find that the longer you've been fruitarian, the less food you have had to eat to maintain/gain strength and energy?

Yeah...Ravi...pretty much....

It's reached the point where it's obvious that food is not related to energy...and food takes AWAY energy....

How are you getting on...?

I just posted about my experiment with a mostly raw food diet

(viewtopic.php?p=43802#43802)

I fell off the wagon for 2 weeks but got right back on. My first 17 days of mostly raw food felt amazing....but now I'm about 8 days into it after a 2 week break, and I'm feeling good, but also a little tired. Dont have the zip I had during my first 17 days. Not sure if this is normal or not...more details in my other post.

I eat:

1) Breakfast:
One bowl with oats/ rye/ barley with flax seeds and psylium and slippery elm. Soaked in hot water for 3 mins. I then add a tablespoon of flax seed oil to it. I also take my multi vitamin and antioxidant

Morning snack: Herbal tea.



2) Lunch:
I make a yummy salad sandwich or rice paper rolls or a salad wrap.


3) Afternoon snack:
Smoothie with 250 ml fortified soymilk and 1 banana and 1 orange I also add a small tablespoon of protein powder sometimes. I take 2 calcium, 2 silica and 1 biotin supplement with my smoothie.


4) Dinner:
Stir friend veggies or hearty soup. Some form of fried rice or spinach and tofy pie. Sate fotu… when I’m lazy I fry up 2 veg sausages and steam some frozen veggies.
Proper nutrition is an art. Every bite is a brush stroke. Every swallow,a new colour. Each meal,a cloud, a tree, a flower a piece of the beautiful painting that you are becoming.

Well thats one whack-job way of putting it.

Hey Ravi...I would weight in at 320(6'1") in my pre-season to pack on strength and drop to 280 or so by the end of the season to get speed for state championships and nationals(same type of training in college). At 320 I would rarely do any olympic lifts or speed work, focusing purely on strength gaining. Then as the season came I would work some olypic lifts into my training and some sprints. By the end of each season my only heavy squatting/deadlifting would really be for a warmup(no more than 4 sets just to make sure I still kept some strength). I would be exclusively doing cleans, dumbell jumps, sprints(I kept my upper body work the same throughout though). With all that extra volume I didn't need to pay attension to my diet to loose weight...it just came off while eating pretty much the same amount of food.
