I thought it was about time I did another full day of eating post. You can check out the first one I did by clicking here.
I don’t eat the same things every day, but I do eat a lot of the same foods a lot of days, if that makes sense. For instance, I have a yogurt, premier protein & PB Fit shake and a quest bar pretty much every day. But my lunch, dinner and most snacks vary from day to day.
The beauty of macro counting is you aren’t bound to the same foods every day like you are with a meal plan. Find some high protein foods you love and can eat regularly, and mix up your carbs and fats with some healthy and also fun things you like to eat. That’s the best way to stay on track and to make this a long term success…by eating things you love!
Keep in mind, everyone has different macro numbers so my macros aren’t your macros and what works for me, may not work for you. BUT hopefully this helps to give you some ideas of foods you can eat to help hit your macro goals!
My current macros are:
I grabbed a protein bar on the way out the door to the gym like I do most days 🙂 If I have more time in the morning, I like to have oatmeal before the gym, but that rarely happens. And on the weekends, I make sure I get in a good breakfast (non-protein bar) like egg whites and oatmeal or something along those lines.
- Fiber-15 (I am not going to list the fiber on everything, just this one because it’s so substantial)
After the gym I came home and had a Premier Protein Shake with 2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter Powder. Chocolate Premier Protein is my FAVORITE and mixed with PB Fit, it tastes like a Reeses PB Cup! (Don’t buy the Premier Protein on Amazon. It is about half the price at Sam’s Club)
I had BPI Sports Best BCAA’s and I do track these because they have 30 calories and 6 grams of protein.
For lunch I had a sandwich and grapes. The sandwich was on 2 slices of Sara Lee 45 calorie bread. If you haven’t had this bread, it is the best! So low calories and tastes amazing! Instead of mayo and cheese, I used one wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese- Lite Swiss. I do this a lot if I want to save on fats. And I had 2 ounces of oven roasted chicken breast lunch meat and a couple of tomato slices that I forgot to log but thats ok!
Later in the day I had a Chobani Greek Yogurt and Pretzel Thins with another wedge of Laughing Cow lite swiss cheese. I usually have a Dannon Lite and Fit Yogurt instead of Chobani but we were out of them so I had Chobani and it was really good!
For dinner I had some leftover chicken and potato soup that my husband made from this recipe and added 2 tablespoons of reduced fat sour cream. It was delicious!
- P- 24
- F- 5
And for dessert (I NEVER skip dessert), I made a pumpkin cookie butter shake with 2 cookie butter oreos. It was to die for!
And finally, I really wanted to hit my macro numbers (hitting them means within + or – 5 of your goal number) I added in 3 candy corns to fill up the rest of my carbs 🙂
I consider this to be an extremely successful day! I was within + or -5 of each macro (I don’t count sugar) and I hit my fiber! YASSS!!!
