Other than some variation at lunch (meal #3) and dinner (meal #5), I am very regimented in what I eat throughout my day. Your day might need more variety, but the more often you eat, the less likely you'll be to binge. If you plan ahead, you can avoid those dangerous drive-thru outings and not-so-great choices.
My typical day looks like this:
Pre-workout : One Kashi 7-Grain frozen waffle - 70 calories
Meal #1: The Healthiest Meal of the Day - Shakeology
Meal #2: Whole Grain Oats with one scoop vanilla protein powder and almonds
Meal #3: A typical salad - greens, tofu, veggies, quinoa, etc.
Meal #4: Whole grain English muffin with 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter and a dash of cinnamon
Meal #5: Dinner often includes grilled chicken and veggies over brown rice or greens.
Eating this way for the past year has allowed me to LOSE 12 pounds and maintain the weight loss. I workout very hard doing my Insanity workouts and I also run, but I still usually have an average daily intake of about 1800 calories. This is not deprivation. This is yummy! This is healthy!
