Starting all over

Alright, The Thanksgiving Holiday is over and we have a good 20 day stretch before the next stretch of holidays. Let's give it our all and see how it goes. Feel free to post more than once as I'm going to have to do because I can't remember what I ate. Day #1 again.


  1. Does anyone have a remedy / nutrition plan for when you're sick? I caught something over the weekend, and have got a pretty nasty cold. Thanks!

  2. Anthony, rest is the most important aspect. Upping your fluid (especially water) intake will help as well. I'm inclined to say that berries will help too. In terms of soups, I'm sure you could cook up a chicken soup sans noodles. Maybe with low-sodium broth, grilled chicken breast strips, celery, asparagus, etc?

  3. I'm not 100% paleo and a lot of it has to do with my lack of carb intake, so I have 2 Clif Bars a day and I know they have oats in them.

    7:30 (Pre-Wod) - Banana and Clif Bar
    9:15 (Post-Wod) - 60g of Whey, 1 table spoon creatine, banana, and Clif bar
    12:15 - Spring Salad mix (1/4 lb) with handful of walnuts, 3 forkfuls of capers, 5 artichoke halves, 1/4 rotisserie chicken, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. 6 1200mg capsules of fish oil

    Rest of the day looks like:

    2:00 - Handful of almonds
    4:00 (pre-wod) - strawberry, blueberry, pineapple, and organic OJ smoothie + 15g of whey
    5:15 (post-wod) - kiwi, 2 hard boiled egg whites, tablespoon creatine, 30g of whey
    7:45 (post-dance) - kiwi
    8:30 - Same salad as above, 6 1200 mg capsules of fish oil

  4. You all will probably have a field day with what I eat but I'm going to try for the next 20 days and see how it goes!

  5. 6:30 AM: 2 packets instant oatmeal
    2 scoops whey protein

    10:00 AM: 4 blocks turkey breast
    2 tortillas
    4 blocks quacamole

    12:45 PM: 4 blocks Ham
    Several handfuls grapes
    Handful of raw walnuts

    5:00 PM (pre-wod): one Bag frozen broccoli
    4 blocks Chicken

    8:15 PM (post wod): Cytosport Weight gainer (3

    10:00 PM: 4 blocks ham
    small handful walnuts
    handful grapes

  6. Thanks Jonny, I made some beef stew with veggies last night for the week (along with some paleo chili), and may have some of that or make some soup. I slept a decent amount last night but I think I may take a few days off from working out--off to bed early tonight.

  7. 8am eggs and sausage
    10am south beach diet bar
    12:45pm grilled chicken breast & apple & handful of almonds
    5pm south beach diet bar
    8:30pm 3/4 boston market chicken, 3 stalks of celery, red apple, handful of walnuts
    11pm 1/4 boston chicken

  8. Day 1. My goals are to minimize cheat meals to two per week, increase my veggie intake, and do a better job eating the right amounts at the right times. Lots of work to do!

    8:00 (post-wod) 2 eggs, 1 slice bacon, coffee
    12:00 apple, 2 oz cashews
    2:00 paleo chili (ground turkey & veg)
    5:15 orange, 2 oz almonds
    9:30 ~6 oz steak, salad

  9. Had a really rough one today.

    Almonds spread throughout the day
    12pm Chipotle Bowl (carnitas, mixed veggies, tomatoes, guac, lettuce)
    9pm 1.5 lb of brisket, 6 pieces of asparagus

    These are days where I feel like I'm unintentionally IF. Days like this where I'm super busy I try not to workout as it usually winds down to me getting sick within 3 days. Tomorrow's another day.

  10. Monday, 11/30/09:

    Pre-workout, 5:45 am: 1 sc whey, water, 1 applesauce
    Post-workout, 7:00 am: 3 egg whites, 2 slices of leftover turkey
    8:45 am: 3 slices turkey
    10:15 am: 5 slices turkey bacon, 3 whole eggs, 1 slice turkey
    11:00 am: 1 apple, 2 handfuls of nuts
    1:30 pm: 1 packet of jerky
    3:00 pm: Odwalla protein shake
    4:30 pm: protein bar

    Went to bed at 6:30 and slept for about 12 hours--feeling better today.
