We've been on this bandwagon for close to a year, with intermitten periods of diligence, but it's been successful overall. Truth be told, we are damn good during the week, but the weekends can be total right offs from time to time. We've seen success, and nothwithstanding the weekend cheats, I feel like there are still some adjustments that could be made.
Exercise: two circuit training (crossfit-esque) gym trips and two spin classes per week, one of them being a longer "endurance" 60 minute class. These are legit spin sessions - former bike racers as instructors - not your average fitness instructor who decided to get on a spin bike.
Typical breakfasts are either A) smoothie with Vega vegan protein powder, half banana, frozen berries, unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a few hemp hearts B) 2 eggs with bacon and/or avocado, bit of fruit (some grapefruit, berries).
Lunch: Spinach salad, lots of mixed veg and protein - chicken, tuna, pork left overs. Sometimes just protein and veg
Dinner: Protein (steak, pork, shrimp, fish) and veg (broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, squash, etc)
Dessert: 1-2 squares dark chocolate
Snacks: During the work day, apple, maybe some berries and full fat greek yogurt.
Are the calories too high? Should carb intake be adjusted or timed differently?
Thanks in advance for your collective wisdom!!! MMS
