After battling #anorexia for so long, it is not a shock when I get asked what all I eat in a day. When you go from eating nothing weighing 80 ibs to now eating 300 carbs a day weighing 124 people ask more than anything, "HOW?!"
One: My food pics are terrible LOL. However I am not on Master Chef, so sorry Gordon that this looks like crap.
Two: This is just what works / is working for me. This will NOT work for everyone, but more of a reference on how I use flexible dieting daily and have the best relationship I've known with food as of now.
Let me first dish out my macros since it'll be asked: 285 c 130 p 55 f weighing in low now at 124.
With the fact that my weight has dropped recently while eating the same amount / more some days I have decided that I am going to increase my calories weekly. My body is needing it, and now that my sleep / stress is aligned I'm focusing on this next.
I plan to add 10-15 g carbs one week then fats the next. I don't do well on "high fat" diets and feel great with carbs. My protein I will not adjust right now as that is about 1 g x bw which is plenty!
A typical day for me:
Meal one: (Pre workout meal) 3 rice cakes 2 tbsp powdered PB 100g pears
Meal two (Post workout) 40 g oats 1 tbsp cacao powder 2 egg whites
Meal three: Egg white omelette 4 egg whites 1 c spinach peppers 6 oz sweet potatoes + 2 tbsp almond butter (TRY THIS LOL).
Snack: 1 serving almonds 40 g oats
Meal four: Mud cake? (the thing pictured lol) 1 scoop whey protein 1 egg white little water baking soda + baking powder 1 tbsp cacao powder 4 oz banana
Before bed: 1 serving enlightened cookie dough brownie ice cream 1 scoop chocolate greens + 1 c almond milk
When I am working throughout the day I swap my egg white omelette with tuna + veggies or ground turkey + veggies
I honestly don't like meat that much, and tend to not have it in my diet. The thing with flexible dieting, is that I no longer feel restricted. If I want to grab Chick Fil A with a friend or go out I CAN. I would also like to say that carbs before bed are not the devil LOL. Personally I fall asleep better with them, if it doesn't work for you that's FINE. (A good before bed option is a whey shake).
I love that I feel energetic throughout the day, and that my body is healthy. I will most likely reverse up to 130 because I'm 5'6 therefore it's a thought that has crossed my mind.
Honestly I just want to get to the 400 carb club ... #goals
I hope this gives you a better insight as to how you can incorporate meals or ideas. (I am also really picky, therefore if you need ideas let me know!)
