My goal here is to just give you a few eating ideas.
Using myself as the base example, of how I am doing things at present.
Pick what you need from this.
And blaze your own path – just don’t fuss and faff. Eating right is very simple.
There is nothing fancy here at all.
Just basic eating done consistently.
There is no -bulking up -no ripping up -just in shape all the time.
The look you see in the picture is an everyday look. That has come about -as a side affect of just training and eating a balanced diet.
The only thing I weigh is myself, as I am holding weight to power lift.
If I gain -I walk further each day and run a few miles a week and eat not as much.
If I loose a little – I rest more and eat more.
Simple as that.
I don’t count anything -calories -protein -etc.
All I do is eat 5 to 7 meals a day and make sure there good meals that include protein -carbohydrates and fats.
And above all else they’re HEALTHY.
I still eat all organic and will for the rest of my days.
I run a base eating plan for a week and change it every week.
This I do for a few reasons.
One- is I know for the whole week what I am buying and cooking.
Two- I know that those meals -hold this weight- this strength -this energy.
Three- I get a huge variety of foods, for nutrition, health and taste standpoint.
Let me give you three weeks here
Oat Scramble (recipe on this site)
Lou and I call this the Robby breakfast after Robby Robinson stayed with us
He had this everyday
Scrambled in Coconut Butter
Garlic salt to taste
All he did here was place oats in a bowl (Irish oats) and just add hot water and stir
He also added berries on top and finished with two teaspoons of Nut Butter
Chicken Thighs skinned no bones
Eggs Scrambled 2 or 3
With Organic Milk
Cottage Cheese (mix together)
Home Made Bread (recipe on this site)
Steak Or Chicken Breast
If I am hungry or light I will add fruit and nuts between meals.
I eat to my appetite -it maybe two eggs or four.
Two turkey breast or one its all on feel.
If I have trained hard – I naturally eat more those days.
I tend to drink 2 liters of water on non-training days and 3 on training.
I also drink lots of green tea.
Cheats are few, far and rare.
If I do its Organic Chocolate or Fish and Chips in Bridlington if possible.
So that’s me – simple eating, day in day out.
I am 51 in a few weeks and I am happy to be in better shape than on my 50th.
I feel fuller -stronger – injuries have healed and I feel fit.
Very fit, I can run, train and move well.
After all these years – I swear it’s down to eating right.
Here’s to 51 and then aim for 52 and be even better.
Take care of yourself, don’t fuss or faff – just DO. And you know what’s crap and what’s good, so eat good.
