    What do you eat in a normal day?

    What do you all eat in a typical day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? what about snacks?

    Breakfast: Protien shake with fruits
    Lunch: Sandwich
    Snack: Tons of Cold Oranges (Hmmm...)
    Dinner: Sandwich with a salad.
    After Workout: Another Protien Shake

    breakfast - Protein shake with granola bar OR eggs and hashbrowns
    Lunch - (can be anything as it is served through work)
    snack - (fruit)
    Dinner - (once again anything but usually between 500 and 750 calories - chicken, beef or fish for SURE)
    snack - (fruit OR protein shake)

    When in peak condition or being a gym rat I throw in an extra meal in between break and lunch. I ALWAYS consume 30 to 50g protein per meal if not more.

    I avoid break, and most carbs except for essential carbs for athletics.

    I eat pretty much the same:
    Breakfast: Protien Shake and 3 or 4 Wheet Bix
    Morning Tea: Protien Shake
    Lunch: Chicken and Vegies
    Post Workout: Protien Shake
    Dinner: Lean Meat and Vegies

    I try to aviod any processed foods like bread and pasta and anything starchy. I prefer to get my carbs from fresh vegies.

    Protein shakes are a staple in my diet. I was even using them when I wasn't working out at all.

    Your body uses more calories to digest a gram of protein rather than a gram of carbs, even more if it is solid food (chicken, tuna), but make sure that you keep your proportions even, eg 40% carbs, 40% protien and 20% fat (good fats). Protein is essential especially after a hard work out on the bike or in the gym to help your muscles recover and rebuild.

    I'll agree with serg. Protein is the best thing to eat as long as your calories are ok.

    Also make sure you aren't referring to a weight gainer. There is a MASSIVE different between a weight gainer and a protein shake.

    Your right, there is a massive difference in Weight Gainers and "Protein" shakes. Weight Gainers have enourmous amounts of carbs and calories. I use a whey protein with a small amount of carbs (8-10g) per serving that also has 3g of glutamine. The glutamine really helps with my recovery and reduces the sorness after a hard workout.

    Breakfast: lucky charms with skim milk
    lunch: peanut butter and jelly
    snack: fig newtons
    dinner: peanut butter and jelly
    late snack: lucky charms with skim milk



    I think I may need to change my diet up a little bit. I bonk easily. I'm a poor college student though so sandwiches are cheap. I also notice that I go through peanut butter very quickly.

    0730: Porridge or cereal, cup of coffee.
    1030: Breakfast bar.
    1200: Sandwich. Often cheese and something, occasionally other stuff.
    Afternoon: Whatever biscuits/cakes/doughnuts we've got in at work. (Sometimes we have apples and bananas too!)
    1930: Dinner. Whatever meat I've bought this week made into something I think will be tasty. Quite a lot of turkey, sometimes bacon! Often a glass of orange juice or a beer.

    Not a protein shake in sight!

    1st meal: 5 or 6 large sourdough pretzels, 8 oz. chili beans, 3 steamed carrots, 3 oz. albacore tuna, banana, 6 or so prunes, apple or pear

    2nd meal: pretty much the same as 1st but steamed broccoli instead of carrots

    3rd meal 1/3 box (25.5 oz.) raisin bran, prunes, banana, apple or pear

    Also take a multi vitamin and drink at least a gallon of water a day. In the summer 2 gallons of water easy.
    All right partner, keep on rollin' baby, you know what time it is....

    I take a cheap grocery store name brand vitamin that according to the nutritional content is the same as centrum, $5 cheaper.

    Gosh you all are a healthy bunch. I've reached the age where the benefits of good eating are more than counter balanced by the first 30 years of bad eating so my motivation to change is low. Breakfast: 2 or 3 cups of coffee, a multivitamin, 400 U vitamin E, 400 U Folic Acid, 750 mg Glucosamine, 600 mg Chondroitin Sulfate, 500 mg MSM. Lunch: peanut butter on whole wheat bread, maybe a pepper or carrot, maybe an apple, 500 mg calcium supplement. Evening browsing period: bean soup, bread of some kind, some vegetable (kale is my favorite), a bowl of oatmeal, a yogurt, and just before bed a cup of coco in the winter.
    Week-ends some pop-corn will fit in there someplace.

    05:30 - Breakfast, cold cereal, usually something healty, but if its in, Frosted lucky charms, They're magically delicious, and Well then, two bowls... first stop, large coffee.
    If I dont make the 05:30 call, its 06:00, and well Toasted bagel, or bread with peanut butter

    08:00 Coffee, usually large.

    10:00 large coffee,

    12:00 if Im lucky, Peanut butter and jelly, if not so lucky, peanut butter.... maybe a banna or apple, 12:1
    If Im really unlucky, some sort of burger or soup if I can find it Re: the not getting out of bed early enough to make lunch / breakfast...

    between 14:00 and 15:00 large coffee.

    between 17:00 and 18:00 coffee for the drive home

    19:00 if Im lucky some sort of dinner... your guess is as good as mine.

    If I don't eat properly I will end up a fat bastard (said in the austin powers way). I have a pretty serious disposition to easy weight gain so I have to be careful.

    Hey Scooby...you really like coffee eh?
