Last summer I was eating just what I felt like and I didn't pay so much attention to my own diet. After I published my food diary last May, I realised that I was not eating so well myself. So that post is not a very good example of how to eat :)
So I started to track my calories and macros using My Fitness Pal. Actually, I really enjoy planning my meals and checking that I hit the correct macros. I do this to make sure I get everything I need. At the moment I have a quite intense training program for myself, and of course, I'm very active every day, moving a lot also when I'm with my PT clients. The more you move and do sports, the more you have to eat!
So here is an example of my daily diet at the moment. I eat more or less this way every day, of course using different vegetables and different sources of protein and carbohydrates. On the weekends I eat more out, but during the week I usually cook every 5 meals myself.
The last 3 weeks I have been eating dairy and gluten free. I don't do that because it is trendy or just for fun, I actually have a reason for it, but I will tell you the reason for it on my next blog post!
MY FOOD DIARY
65 g millet flakes (or quinoa, or oats)
4 egg whites stirred into the porridge (or 1 egg + 2 egg whites)
Fibers (psyllium and "indische flohsamen" or chia)
100 g berries
Omega 3 supplement
70 g lentils (or beans/tofu/chicken/turkey)
250-300 g vegetables: this time asparagus, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes
1 table spoon of olive oil / coconut oil OR 30-40 g avocado
(with poultry/meat, I add some carbs, but with legumes I might leave it out)
Usually a smoothie on the go:
Other snacks I often eat:
Quinoa/Corn crackers with egg whites and avocado
A fruit, nuts and soy yogurt
A protein bar and a banana
100 g salmon/chicken/turkey/organic minced beef
250-300 g vegetables (broccoli, lettuce, bell pepper, cucumber, kohlrabi)
20-40 g avocado
40-50 g quinoa (or rice, sweet potato, potatoes, lentil pasta, millet)
1 egg + 2 egg whites
15 g protein powder
Coconut oil for cooking
I try to hit the macros 50-25-25 (carbs, protein, fat), but I don't always measure everything. I drink usually 1 coffee per day, many cups of green tea and many many liters of water with lemon juice and sea salt!
