Whitney’s Diet Plan

Lately, I’ve been working on getting my fitness life together. Not that I wasn’t working out and eating healthy before, but I haven’t had a fitness goal in about a year. I’m working on something major, but I don’t want to talk about it yet until I get a few months into training. I want to make sure the crazy training schedule agrees with me long-term because it’s a serious time commitment. But, what I can talk about is my current diet. Honestly, its not that different from what I usually eat, it’s just more focused on helping my body perform its best.

Breakfast

Lemon Water

After I workout, I drink some hot lemon water as I get ready for work. Lemon water has some AWESOME benefits like boosting your immune system, aiding digestion, balancing PH, etc.

Next, I have two pieces of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread with 3 eggs. I have to eat a filling breakfast or I’ll set myself up for binging later in the day.

Snack

I’ll have a protein shake as a snack. Right now, I do chocolate protein powder and almond milk. When I run out of that I’m going back to one of my favorites – Peaceful Planet Brown Rice Protein Powder or Vega Protein Powder. I’ll mix it with vanilla almond milk and some fruit to make a protein smoothie.

Lunch

For lunch I’ve been eating shrimp spring rolls.

When I get tired of those, I’ll get the grilled shrimp skewers from Zoe’s kitchen and a Greek salad.

I like having multiple healthy options for lunch because I get sick of eating the same thing every day!

If I’m still hungry after lunch, I’ll have another protien shake or carrots and hummus.

 

Dinner

Tilapia, beans and rice

I’ll eat a piece of blackened tilapia with 1/2 cup of black beans and 1/2 cup of brown rice topped with some salsa. It’s really yummy and filling.

 

I stick to this diet Monday through Friday and something really similar on the weekends. Right now, I’m not doing cheat meals. The most cheating I’ve done is having a veggie burger. It’s been tough, but sticking to a balanced, protein-rich diet is key to me reaching my fitness goals.

I can’t wait to announce my fitness plan in the next month or so. I’ll have some amazing progress pics for you guys too!
