It can be really discouraging when you are killing it in the gym but are not seeing the results you are wanting. Usually this is caused by your nutrition. Unfortunately, the reality is you can not out train a poor diet. It took me a very long time to figure this aspect out but one of the ways that made it a little easier for me was to see what other people were eating.
I always love seeing other blogger’s WIAW (what I ate wednesday) posts because it provides a great resource for new meal ideas or meal planning options.
PWO shake– Vanilla Isalean Pro (the perfect combo of carbs and protein that are essential after your workout).
Breakfast- Protein Pancakes (ate these once I got to work)
Lunch- Buffalo Chicken Burger on a thin whole wheat bun + mixed raw veggies
Afternoon Snack- 1 scoop of IsaPro vanilla protein powder blended with lots of ice, almond milk and cinnamon + 1/2 granny smith apple + crunchy peanut butter
Dinner- Grilled salmon + sweet potatoes + green beans
Bedtime Snack- small handful of cashews
Lots of water all day.. and maybe some coffee too 😉
That is a pretty standard day of eating for me! As you can see, with almost every meal and snack I always try to have a protein source paired with a carb/fat.
