Hi could someone give me advice on what I could be doing better diet wise please? I am toying with different carb/protein/fat ratios and i think I've lost my way!
This is what I eat on a typical day:
My veg blend smoothie: 1 banana, some berries, protein powder, 1 cup cooked quinoa, beatroot, celery, carrot, kale, ginger, 1Tbsp ground flaxseed.
some fruit typically, an apple,orange and banana.
Brown rice and tomato kidney beans or brown rice and lentils with added fats (1 Tbsp almonds and 1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds)
Pre-dinner: more fruit, possibly a protein and fruit shake.
Big dry salad with cooked chickpeas in tomato sauce and 1/2 an avocado.
The dinner is new as I was having another protein (beans/lentils) with grain (brown rice) meal but wasn't sure having grains at every meal is good or bad? I'm not currently using oils, trying to get my fats from nuts/seeds/avocados, seeing how it goes anyway.
Exercise wise I'm doing (or trying to get back into I should say) daily fasted cardio (before breakfast) and full body weight training twice a week. I have seen some gains (I can see my abs under certain lighting) but wanting some more definition but still enough energy to train/work/live.
Anyone got any improvement suggestions? Is it helpful to have grains at every meal? Do i need to eat more calories? All constructive feedback is welcome.
