Ooops, didn't realize there was a nutrition subforum. Can someone delete my post in "XC Racing and Training"?
Any "nutritionist" type people on here? Have some questions about protein shake/etc
Anyone here that know "more than they read online" about nutrition?
I'm having a hard time getting that last 7 pounds of fat off my body (want to get to 8% body fat from 12%), (5,10, "big boned" and at 167lbs) and am thinking of trying to replace some of my "scavenging/snacking" with a regulated protein/meal replacement shake twice a day to help manage my appetite and calories.
My idea is:
Breakfast: 250 calorie Clif Bar, 100 calorie Banana (have to eat on the run in the AM, no eggs/etc, don't have time or desire, I tried )
Snack: 150 Calorie Protein Shake or Slim Fast or something like that
Lunch: 600-700 Calorie Sub from Subway or similar lunch
Snack: 150 Calorie Protein Shake or etc
Dinner: 700-800 Calories
Snack: 200 Calorie of PBJ or etc
That should rock me out ~2300 calories so when I do a 800-900 calorie work out at night (1.5 hours on the bike), I end up with a net of ~1400-1500 leading me to lose some fat.
On days where I don't work out, I'll skip one of the protein shakes and knock down lunch and dinner by ~100 calories each and end up with 2000 for the day which will "maintain" me on those days.
What I do today is scavenge and end up eating lots of fatty nuts, mini snicker bars, drier fruit (sugar) as snacks, which aren't nearly as nutritionally friendly as the shakes.
