My Eating Lifestyle

Follow Me on PinterestPin It

The reason that I titled this article, “My Eating Lifestyle”, is because that what I believe.  If you are looking to lose weight it has to be a LIFESTYLE change.  Since I made the change I can promise you this, I have never regretted changing my eating habits.  I look forward to every meal, I get to eat all day long and I have no guilt or frustration when finished.  I feel better, have more energy and I haven’t been sick in almost 3 years.  This, coming from a guy that used to spend hundreds of dollars a year on cough, sinus, allergy and sore throat medicines.   

Here is why I hate to use the word DIET.  Diet is just a temporary solution to a lifetime problem of over eating, under exercising and lack of understanding about how the body works.  I know this because I spent at least ten years of my life looking for the solution to my weight problem in all the wrong places.  I looked at different diets (oops I said it, sorry) and workout plans and nothing worked until I started P90x and followed the nutrition plan.  I followed the plan without cheating, not even once.  I didn’t even eat a piece of my own birthday cake that year! 

Some people are intimidated by the p90x nutrition guide because it looks so different then what they are used to.  It has foods that they have never eaten before or thought they didn’t like.  At least that’s what I thought.  So my suggestion to you is this.  Take the p90x nutrition guide or any nutrition guide and write down the foods you like and know that you will eat.  Even include some that you will at least try before you throw it in the trash.  I made a list of proteins, carbs, fruits, vegetables, fats, etc. that I knew I would eat.  Next, I went to the grocery store to buy from the list that I had made.  Fast forward 3 years and I still eat a clean, healthy diet that varies from the p90x nutrition guide, but it definitely laid the foundation for a new eating lifestyle.  CLICK HERE to watch my Youtube videos about what I eat (my shopping list) and my P90x/Insanity transformation video.

Here is a sample of what I eat each day.  It varies depending if I’m wanting to do lose weight, body fat or gain muscle mass.  Plus, I can add to it or take away to meet my daily calorie intake for that day.

Breakfast: Approximately 6:30-7:00a.m.

Quaker Old Fashion Oatmeal (1/2 cup to 1 cup) – Will also use Steel Cut Oats on the weekend.

Frozen Fruit (1 Cup – placed in microwave on defrost mode approx. 45 secs)

Oatmeal is cooked with Unsweetened Almond Milk.

Occasionally I will mix in a scoop of chocolate whey protein or natural peanut butter

 Breakfast alternatives:

Small baked potato with scrabbled egg whites and mixed with spinach.

1 cup of Kashi Go Lean with unsweetened almond milk and a bowl of fruit (see above)

2 whole wheat Kashi Go Lean waffles – spread natural peanut butter on one waffle and slice a banana on the other.  Smash together like a sandwich for a great breakfast.

A.M. Snack: Approximately 9:00-930a.m.

Pure Protein Bar or a Lara Bar (Sam’s Club or Wal-Mart)

Handful of natural unsalted almonds

 Lunch: Approximately 12:00-12:30

Chocolate Shakeology

1 scoop shakeology

1 scoop of Sun Warrior Raw Plant Protein 

1 tbsp of smuckers natural peanut butter

1 tbsp of Wildroot Milled Flaxseed

8 to 10 oz of water (12 cubes of Ice)

 P.M. Snack: Approximately 3:00-3:30p.m.

Fat-free plain greek yogurt

1 tbsp of chopped walnuts

2 tbsp of Agave nectar

½ box of raisins (only on occasion)

Mix together and slice an apple to dip into yogurt.

 Supper: Approximately 5:00-5:30p.m.

Lean meat or protein: salmon, chicken, turkey or egg white omelet.

 Vegetable (cauliflower, broccoli and carrots mixed with jalapeños, black pepper, turmeric and garlic.)

Vegan BurritoCLICK HERE for the recipe.  Makes 6 to 8 burritos, I eat this a lot, its one of my favorites.

 Supper alternatives:

Whole wheat pita bread, spinach, jalapenos, black bean and corn salsa, fat free cheese, chopped bell pepper, cucumber and Newman’s Own low fat honey mustard.  Place ingredience on pita bread and eat like a taco.

Egg Scramble: 8 to 10 egg whites, fat free cheese and spinach.  Mix in magic bullet blender and scramble over medium heat.   Top with salsa and enjoy.

 Late night snack: 8:00-8:30p.m.

8 oz. of water

1 scoop of protein (only if I’m building muscle)

 These are just a few of the types of meals that I eat every day.  As I said earlier, it varies depending on what I’m trying to achieve and how many calories I need to eat that day.  (usually between 2500 to 3500 calories a day.)
