"You can tell me all you want about eating more healthy- eating 5, 6, 7 times a day, getting in your protein, eating fruits and veggies, taking all the right supplements. But, give me some examples?"
Makes sense. I would love to. Michael A. Roussell has written a book called NAKED NUTRITION. I highly recommend that you buy it, read it, and follow it. What I like about his take on nutrition is that there are no special diets or gimmicks involved. Much of what he says is common sense, but also, the advice he gives focuses on lifestyle changes. Functional stuff. Real-life solutions for us- the busy mom/dad who needs just a few tweaks in her/his nutritional plan to make a huge difference.
I thought I would list some foods within the 5 major food groups from you to choose from on a daily basis- with these tenets in mind- protein at every meal, veggies/fruits throughout the day, fats sparingly, and starches in the morning and/or around your workout. Check out Mike's list of naked foods:
Lean Ground Beef
Whole Grain Bread
Whole Wheat Tortilla
Now, get to planing and cooking. Take the time to think about your meals and start seeing yourself as the healthy-you. If you start eating these healthy foods- great tasting foods- your workouts are going to benefit from it as well. Eat good-feel good-look good.
