During the course of the week I have been asked about what one should snack on throughout the day. The answer is simple, smaller versions of your meals. If you are prepared and are bringing food with you to and from work you should have food to snack on. Believe it or not there are days where us coaches cannot honestly get away from the gym, or at least do not make it a priority to do so, however on these days we are more often than not prepared with tupperware full of appropriate foods. In these cases I simply split my tupperware up throughout the day. Rather than gorging on all of what is brought, you simply break it up into two smaller meals or one small one and a large one.
More often than not most of the conversations that have been had recently on this topic tend to be over complicated. If you know what types of foods you are supposed to eat, just eat them. Do not get caught up on the idea of “thats a breakfast food” or “its only 9am” Eat a Steak, eat some avocado and have some veggies, regardless of the hour. Keep it simple and you will find it much easier to remain consistent.
-Dont ever just have a carbohydrate by itself.
-Dont go longer than 5 hours without eating
-Remember your body is an engine and needs to be fed regardless if you are trying to lose weight
-If you think you are hungry, drink more water.
Pictured above is a sample snack, 1/2 a small Hass avocado and a couple ounces of Rib eye from the night before. Simple, doesnt require a lot to keep around. Dont be afraid of feeling like that weird guy or girl, everyone judging you, will judge you regardless.
No one became awesome by following the crowd.
