Dear Boys and Girls,
I've been getting LOTS of emails asking me to list what I eat. Here is a little (kinda long actually) video of my eats.
Note: What I don't eat:
Actually, there are other things I don't eat...see below.
Basically, if it's not on my menu listed here, I don't eat it. So, while almond milk is good for you and so is whole grain cereal, I just don't eat it. It works for me and it doesn't mean you have to or should do that. If you eat from the top two tiers of Michi's Ladder, you're good to go. If you want to achieve elite fitness, then, yea, MAYBE you have to give up certain things. Again, this is what works for ME. I do not feel deprived. I'm a pretty boring person who doesn't mind repetition. :)
I do allow myself one cheat meal per week. That means that I do eat dairy, but ONLY during that cheat meal. I gave up alcohol altogether.
Barbie's Meal Plan: (about 1700 to 1900 calories, more or less. I haven't counted lately)
Cardio, one hour in the morning,
If it's very early, I will have a meal replacement shake
1/2 cup oats
6 egg whites
2 hours later
2 brown rice cakes
1 tsp almond butter on each (no salt on rice cakes and raw almond butter)
scoop of BB whey protein with water. Yum!
protein: 6 ounces of chicken, fish, eggs. Here is where you need to vary it up. Try different veggies, different fish, spices, etc.
2 tablespoons of hummus
cup or two of veggies
scoop of protein and water
1 or 2 cup of veggies and protein (Again, vary it up!) about 6 ounces
dinner2: (about two hours later)
1-2 cups of veggies and protein (about 6 ounces)
1 scoop of whey protein with Casein in it. Available at GNC.
1 scoop of creatine.
AFTER RESISTANCE WORKOUT, usually in the afternoon, I have my shakeology or meal replacement.
I hope this helps!
