Hi Venee, Congrats on your success! I was just wondering what your typical day looks like for meals? I've been doing warrior for the last year and a half and lost 80 pounds, but now I seem to be at a standstill, with still another 40-50 pounds to go, so I was wondering what you normally eat and maybe I could tweak my diet for the better. Thanks so much!!
For meals I may have a protien shake if I get the chance to work out during the day (I have small kids and hubby works so my big workouts are after 5PM usually) If I don't get the chance to work out I just do water. Or Lemon water. At around 8PM I break the under eating fast ALWAYS with a huge salad. I use fresh spinach as the base then add broccoli, carrots, peppers sometimes black beans, onion, cucumber ,hummus, avacado. When I say huge I mean the size of a large mixing bowl. I use Balsamic vinegrette dressing the veggies vary, but I always use a spinach base. I then wait about an hour and eat whatever protien I want that day I don't eat red meat so it's always some type of fish (LOVE Salmon) or chicken and sometimes eggs that alongs side more veggies or lentils whatever I'm in the mood for. I again let that digest and and I eat some carbs in the form of my absolute favorite Kashi cereal Go Lean original or crunch or a mix. I need the fiber to stay regular (TMI). I take a multivitamin for women from GNC as well. There are somethings I've satyed away from, such as no white carbs, no white rice, white pasta etc. no white bread, or large amounts of bread at all, no processed sandwich meats, no heavy dairy (cheeses, milk products). Yes when there are Bdays etc I'll have a small piece of cake or the occasional dessert, but (and this is just my hang up) I won't eat stuff like that unless I've had a very hard workout day. Hope this helps.
