|This drink is cleansing and a great way to flush the system to start the day.|
|Grapefruit is light and full of vitamins and minerals. It also contains the antioxidant |
lycopene. And under the rind is the compound, naringin -- which helps regulate insulin.
|Whole wheat pasta doesn't spike blood glucose levels like white pasta.|
No meat here. I avoid pairing meats with starchy carbs to allow for better digestion.
|If you're focusing on losing bodyfat, protein smoothies are a good supplement to ensure you're getting |
adequate protein in your diet.
My meals change depending on what I'm focusing on. Whether it be adding muscle, leaning out or maintenance -- all goals require a different approach to diet. Right now I'm working toward leaning out a tad. Every so often, I slack off a little (yes, I do too) and need to refocus my efforts. I never let things get too far off track -- I check my bodyfat percentage often to keep an eye on things. The meals reflected here are what I consider to be a pretty good day -- eating every few hours, food pairings were good and I avoided starchy carbs at night. And at the end of the night when I was dog tired from chasing my twins around all day, I went to the gym at 10 p.m. to get in some cardio. Not to toot my own horn ... but, toot toot!
