New Nutrition Program Works A Treat!

sweetpotato

Hi folks, sorry that I haven’t been that active lately, but thing are rather busy with getting ready for our big move to Scotland.

But one thing that I want to review is my new nutrition program that I have been implementing over the last month or so.

Here it is in a nutshell;

  • 3 snacks in between meals, these are protein or fiber based.
  • 3 main meals, these are portion controlled and balanced with; complex carbohydrates, proteins, fiber and good fats.

My biggest apprehension with this program was the adding of a lot more carbohydrates than I usually eat in a day.

So the biggest challenge that I faced was getting by my own and felling relaxed about eating more carbs.

The complex carbs that I have added are; brown rice, yams, sweet potatoes , whole meal bread and uncooked oatmeal.

Here is my first day’s food log on the program;

  • Breakfast: oatmeal, low-fat milk and one tablespoonful of natural honey.
  • Snack 1: 2 poached eggs & a handful of roasted peanuts
  • Lunch: Brown rice, mixed raw vegetable salad (all green), one medium boiled chicken breast, two tablespoons of olive oil and a squeeze of a slice of lemon
  • Snack 2: Whey protein shake & an apple
  • Dinner: Grilled tiger prawns, broccoli, bean shoots and a medium sized sweet potato (boiled).
  • Snack 3: A handful of peanuts and a slice of Edam cheese

So after my first day I was completely STUFFED!!!! I used a portion control plate (it has three compartments) for my lunch and dinner and a small bowl was used for my breakfast (about a cup and a half).

But that night workout was awesome, I had ENERGY!!! yep, I powered my way through my workout and it felt gooooooood :-)

I think that it took me about a week and a half to get use to eating like this, so two weeks the bloated feeling was gone.  Now I wasn’t Christmas dinner bloated but I did feel rather full.

I am putting this down to the increase of complex carbohydrates.

So what are COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES? To keep it simple I look at them as UNPROCESSED carbohydrates, then there are SIMPLE CARBOHYDRATES that are processed; they are no longer in their natural form.

Another thing that I would like to mention is that after two weeks I have postponed my trial (and eventual review of) Biotest’s SURGE Workout Fuel, my reason for this is that I want to focus in fat loss (limiting calories) and then when I am lean I will be focusing more on building muscle and then I will continue my SURGE Workout trial and review, I figure if it works then it would be more beneficial to use while bulking up.
