Sexy meal planning is usually not sustainable, but simple sureAF is. The ‘Rule of 2s’ is LIFE – We keep breakfast as a daily constant & then pick 2 of each macro (pro/carb/fat) + 2 veggies for lunch/dinner.
⚡️2 Proteins (bison, beef)
⚡️2 Carbs (sweet potatoes, white rice)
⚡️2 Fats (avocado, olive oil)
⚡️2 Veggies (zucchini, broccolini)
⚡️Bison, sweet potatoes, avocado, zucchini
⚡️Beef, rice, extra virgin olive oil, broccolini
Time to bust out our Food Tracking App of choice (MyFitnessPal, Fat Secret, Lose It! – We prefer MFP). We’ve got a game plan on WHAT we will be eating… but how much? What about snacks? Post-wod shakes? Supps?
Start by Logging Protein at Every Meal:
⚡️3 eggs – breakfast
⚡️4 oz bison – lunch
⚡️4 oz beef – dinner
⚡️Protein shake – post-wod
⚡️1⁄2 cup oats + 50g berries – breakfast
⚡️200g sweet potato – lunch
⚡️ 1.5 cups cooked rice – dinner
⚡️2 slices of bacon – breakfast
⚡️100g avocado – lunch
⚡️1 T extra virgin olive oil – dinner
⚡️1 cup arugula & 100g bell peppers – breakfast
⚡️100g zucchini – lunch
⚡️100g broccolini – dinner
You should now have a full day planned in your tracking app of choice, shimmy! In MyFitnessPal, scroll to the bottom of the food diary & click ‘Nutrition’. You should see current macro totals (Make sure to select “nutrients” up top). Keep adjusting entries until numbers match up with macro goals!
Need More Protein?
⚡️Adjust lunch and dinner meat portions to 6-8oz
