I keep reading that the perfect body is made in the kitchen, well 70% and rest in the gym.
So to obtain the figure I require, I should increase the frequency in which I eat as well as up my protein intake.
Based on my weight, I should be consuming approx 290g of protein per day, 390g carbs and 97g fats.
I am using Myfinesspal to log what I eat on a daily basis, which will hopefully give me an indication of the amount of protein, carbs and fats I currently consume. After reviewing the information, I can then start cutting or increasing where possible.
The aim is to consume approx 6 meals per day, with a 3 hour gap between.
Meal one: 2 whole eggs, 2 egg whites. One sashay of oats, semi skimmed milk, and protein powered
Meal two: Cottage cheese with pineapple
Meal three: Tuna mayo sandwich on brown bread and a portion of fruit
Meal four: Jam and Peanut butter sandwich with a protein shake
Meal five: chicken and veg
Meal six: plain yoghurt with Protein powder mixed in
On my workout days, I also have a protein shake after the gym
The above is roughly what I am consuming Monday to Friday. Saturday tends to go astray because I like to socialise with friends. So, already I have a focus area!
I will be posting daily what I have eaten, with an overview of calories, protein, carbs and fats breakdown.
Wish me luck!
