Training Day

When I work out with my coach in Sacramento on Saturdays- I have to eat light before so I don't puke when he has me do these heavy, intense workouts. Also, I try to pack everything I need, so afterward I don't have to go out anywhere to eat.

1 banana
1 coffee

tons of water

1 whole wheat sandwich- with 1 tablespoon jam and 1 teaspoon peanut butter

a couple chunks of raw coconut

1 bowl New England boiled dinner (see recipe below)

homemade veggie pizza - (I made a homemade crust, but you can do a thin crust Boboli)
I sauteed veggies (mushrooms, bell pepper, squash, onion) in fat free butter spray and garlic.
I topped the crust with sauce (tomato sauce with Italian seasoning, hot sauce and garlic)
on top of that, I put the veggies (no cheese). Heat it in the oven until hot (it's already cooked). I had 2 pieces. There are 2 more 2 piece servings left. It is so top heavy with the veggies that you get full and satisfied pretty quickly.

Had to go to a training to day....

A tip for those of you trying this- you can make equivalent substitutions- just keep it low fat- no mayonnaise, no cheese, no high fat meats. Add these snacks- 2 fruits and 2 cups raw veggies every day. I can eat a pretty boring diet- I'll make a big pot of something and eat it for days. You can change it to whatever low fat soups, or high fiber, low fat cereals, or other meals under 5 grams of fat. That said- here we go again-

Jan 19th- Tuesday-

3 cups coffee, milk and sweetner
1/2 cup oatmeal w/apples and skim milk

10 cups water throughout the day

1 grapefruit

1/2 deli sandwich (on whole wheat, turkey and veggies, mustard)

1 large apple

2 pieces of beef jerky

1 cup of split pea soup with 2 pieces whole wheat toast (spray butter)

Time to get serious and lose some weight!

OK, folks, so I have an opportunity to fight a chick in Florida in April. Only problem is, I'm at 130 and need to be at 115 for the fight. I did a 15 pound weight loss last year for a fight and got sick as hell. No cutting water weight this time around. I'm going back to my traditional bodybuilding style of diet- very low fat and low calorie. If you need to drop a few, this will work. But I'll warn you, it's pretty strict! You might need to add some snacks, or, for guys, add to your meals (double portions). Oh, and ask your doctor if you have any special health concerns like diabetes or hypoglycemia. So, here goes......

Sunday- Jan. 17th

2 cups of coffee (with a little milk and 1 tsp sugar in each)
1 huge apple

4 cups water

2 cups raw veggies (bell peppers, radashes)

1 burrito (1 whole egg plus 3 egg whites scrambled in fat free spray butter, topped with salsa on a low fat flour tortilla)

4 cups water

1 cup low fat veggie beef soup, 1 green salad w/fat free dressing, 1 slice bread

2 mandarins

4 cups water

Saturday- Jan. 18th

2 cups coffee with milk and sugar

1/2 cup of oatmeal (with apples sauteed in spay butter and cinnamon) , sweetner and skim milk
