I saw your butt at work today...

Breakfast

Carbs (Fast & slow digesting)
Protein (Fast & slow digesting)
Fats (Mono/poly-saturated)

Yup… You need all 5 at the start of the day.

Why?

Fast carbs spike your insulin (Fruit), which is 1 of 2 times of the day when it makes sense to do so

Slow carbs refeed you after a long fast (Sleep)

Slow proteins refeed you after a long fast and protect your S-curvish results throughout the day.

The fat helps to slow down digestion. It’s also 1 of 2 times of the day when you’re allowed to eat a lot fat. The other is lunch time.

 

Lunch

Protein (Slow digesting)
Fat (Mono/poly-saturated)
Fibrous carbs (Leafy greens)
Slow carbs (Optional)

It’s all about keeping your body ticking over at this point in the day.
Go carb up if you get hungry.

 

Snacks

Fruit, seeds and nuts

It’s all about keeping satiety at bay so that you don’t crave for ice-cream and the like… Natural tasty fruit and good fat nuts to slow digestion FTW.

 

Pre/Post workout

Fast protein and carbs

Simples… You need energy and protein… Quickly, to improve the effectiveness of an S-curve workout.

 

Dinner

Slow protein
Slow carbs
Leafy greens

It’s time to feed the monster. Munch up for post workout gains. Munch up so that your gains are protected as you sleep.

 

Night food

Slow protein and some fat

…To protect your muscles as you sleep.
