cubby2112 Posted November 17, 2009 Share Posted November 17, 2009 My food intake as per Johan's request on the Dr. Fuhrman bodybuilding thread: I now eat a meal pre-workout, because it is too hard to cram all that food in after a workout. Pre-workout (lunch-ish) smoothieEnough kale to fill the blender (Vita-Mix)1lb frozen spinach1 orange1T flax1 cup strawberries1 cup blueberries Post-workout smoothie1lb spinach1/4 dried goji berries1 whole banana (skin and all)1T flax Then when I get home, I eat a soup made with2 cups dried beans, cooked1lb leafy greens1lb solid vegetables1 6oz can tomato paste1/4 cup nutritional yeast1/4 cup nuts/seedsI blend half of it to make a creamy soup, then eat half of it, usually with a piece of fruit and some carrots. Last mealSome raw veggies dipped into my soup, while it is thick, before reheatingThe other half of my soupA banana with nut butter This is a lot of volume, yes. I should probably cut back on the veggies, because at that level of consumption, I am probably not gaining anything. Also, I shouldn't fill my stomach so much. I usually stop once my hunger signals (true hunger) dissipate, but that usually requires a full (surprisingly, not stuffed) stomach. Until today, I used to add 1/2 cup nuts/seeds instead of 1/4 cup to my soup. I want to get rid of this last bit of fat on my stomach, so I halved the nuts and seeds there. The sheer volume of food should keep my true hunger in check. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
