I keep calling my new diet round "carb rotating" but I'm actually calorie rotating I noticed after sitting down to figure out my meals. I'm now rotating through high, med, and low days wherein my starch grams stay constant, but the non-starchies, protein, and fats go up and down. So far, between correcting my mixing fats and starches, and the new diet, I've lost 5 good pounds since the first of the year. Encouraging.
Sat 1/20--a "high" cal day:
8:30 1/2 serv. oats and full berry/greens powder/pp smoothie
9:30 Sprints and stadium stairs workout with friends
10:45 rest of my oats
11:00 Training: Back and hams. "Relief week" after last week: still 3 superset pairs--2 for back, 1 for hams--with the prefatigue method, but only 3x10-12 first ex, 3x6 second ex.
11:30 rice cakes and pp drink
12:30 veggie puree with tofu and barley/rice blend
4'ish: apple, nuts, pp pudding
7'ish: I accidentally missed a meal
, so I really did up my salad with mixed greens, avocado (omg-nirvana!), black olives, mushrooms, and extra tofu.
9:30 oats, berry-pp-greens smoothie
11:00-1:00 volunteered at church with kids. would now kill for glass of wine, but it's SO not on the diet.
1:30 pp pudding with nut/seed meal and apple
[now about to train--it's 2p.]
Training shoulders--yes! Same workout I've been doing, but with the lighter load (same as yesterday's back/hams above). Also have cardio--intervals, 40 min.
3:30 or so I'll eat rice cakes and pp pudding
Hit Whole Foods for pp travel packets and make tofu jerky for my trip this week.
6'ish Something high in veggies and protein with either fat or very little starch--depends on what my menu says today (a "medium" cal day).
8:30'ish Something mixing low starch veggies and protein, with added fat if I still have some g's to get in.
