Hey guys! So I asked y’all recently though Instagram if you’d be interested in seeing a food diary of mine even though I’m currently bulking and may not be super pertinent to everyone. But, since several of you said yes, well, here you go!
So most days I just kind of scavenge around and eat as I go, but on days that I work, I plan out my entire day from breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. In general, I aim to eat clean about 75% of the time, and the other 25% I give myself more flexibility. When I’m not bulking, it’s usually more 80/20 but with so many extra calories, it’s easier to fit in treats! Overall though, I’m eating ~2600 calories a day (350g of these are carbs).
Okay, so all three days of work are literally the same meals so here’s what I had 3 days this week. Also, I’ve tried to include portion descriptions when I can, just to give you a better idea of what I’m consuming. Obviously this won’t be super helpful to you guys; even if you’re bulking as well, everyone’s macros are still so different! But I figured I’d go ahead and give you guys as much insight to what I’m eating as possible.
Breakfast: 4 medium sized potato waffles, 1 large banana, 10g whipped cream, 10g agave syrup, 8 oz. califia farms café latte
Snack 1: Siggis black cherry yogurt container 2% fat
Snack 2: homemade chocolate chip muffin (recipe in earlier blog post; can be found here)
Lunch: 2 oz penne pasta protein plus (Barilla) with 1/2 cup pasta sauce (Prego), Siggis blueberry yogurt non fat, 22 pretzel crisps thins
Snack 3: 6 Women’s Best coconut protein bites
Snack 4: 15 whole wheat Ritz crackers
Dinner: kale and mozzarella chicken burger (Amylu brand), 2 slices whole wheat bread, 30g avocado, 100g gold potatoes
Dessert: 1/2 cup Edy’s ice cream
There you have it! If you guys have any questions let me know! Also, since I’m at work, I would say that this is an example of a “cleaner” day of eating. When I’m not working, I may go out to eat and may opt for a meal that is more calorie dense/not quite as clean 😉
Hope this was helpful!
