My Meal Plan


This is not me. Not yet.

Dear Boys and Girls,

I have received several emails today asking for me to post my meal plan. This is a personalized meal plan that I got from a personal trainer that I reached out to last month. She is the one that suggested I do six days of cardio and four days of resistance.

No joke, my meals are simple, probably a little too plain and boring for most folks. I am totally okay with eating these same meals day in and day out, FOR NOW. I am not someone that needs a lot of variety, so I don't mind eating veggies & hummus for every second snack. And yum, I am enjoying the rice cakes with almond butter! I do vary my lunch and dinner by eating different kinds of veggies and protein. Also, remember, I have a very specific goal in mind: I want to get in the VERY BEST possible shape and drop down to about 14% body fat by December 2009.

I don't think it's necessary to eat this plainly and boring in order to lose weight or get fit. But, since I want a six pac, I'm willing to do what it takes.

Bring it!

p.s. I work out hard, eat every 2-3 hours, and don't need to count calories at this point.

I try my best to get my water in, but I don't think I drink 128 ounces. I try!

Sounds...yeah, pretty boring. But obviously it's working for you. I can stick to a plan like that for like, a week before I go crazy and am like, "Ahh, I need flavor!"

Thanks! Helps me to figure out food quantity. I dont think it's boring at all; we've gotten so used to adding crap to healthy food that we need to get back to basics, i.e how can a salad end up being 1200 calories??!?! The salad has been hijacked by fastfood and restaurant chains! I found Tosca's cooler 1 was too hardcore for me since I do a lot of cardio. I'm starting on Monday.
