My Diet

Food

A question without doubt that I personally get asked the most…….

“What is your diet like?” or “What do you eat?”

When I get asked this question I always hesitate in my reply….

WHY?

Because my diet will not suit everyone! NO DIET will suit everyone.

Your diet should be tailored to you!

If some people followed my diet they will more than likely gain weight due to the amount of calories I consume on a daily basis. Currently sitting around the 3000 mark. Yeah sounds high right?!? but you calorie intake should replicate your daily activity!

I have debated for over a year whether to put this information out there or not look these up. Mainly because I don’t want people to think they can just follow the below meal by meal and get results!

So just before I give you a outline of my current diet, PLEASE just see this as more as guide to what healthy meals should look like, rather than using it as a diet plan.

I am currently following the ‘Carb Backloading’ dieting approach with my diet. Which is pretty simple and shouldn’t be over complicated. It pretty much means you have complexed Carbs (rice, potatoes, pasta etc) ONLY in your last meal of the day.

MY DIET

Breakfast (7-8am)
3 Duck Egg Omelette with Spinach and Tomatoes
OR
Whey Protein Shake (300ml Almond Milk) and 20g Nuts

Snack (10-11am)
Nakd Bar
OR
Tin Tuna
OR
Protein Shake
OR
20g Nuts
OR
20g 85% Cocoa Chocolate
OR
Berries

Lunch (1-2pm)
Chicken Breast Salad (Avocado, Spinach, Watercress, Tomatoes, Onion) 1 tbsp Hummus
OR
‘Super’ Mince – Beef mince cooked in coconut oil mixed with loads of Veg, focus on green veg.

Snack (4-5pm)
Homemade Green Smoothie (Hulk Juice as my girlfriends nephew see’s it)
200ml Almond Milk
Handful Kale
Handful Spinach
1 Kiwi
Handful Frozen Berries
1 Scoop Whey Protein Power

Evening Meal (8-9pm)
White Fish with lemon/ginger seasoning served with Kale, Birdseye veg pack and basmati rice
OR
Chicken or Seafood Paella
OR
Thai Green Curry (Chicken/Prawns, Coconut Milk, loads of Green Veg) and Jasmine Rice

The above is an example! I eat alot more variety than just the meals I have listed, but it will give you idea of how my current diet looks on a daily basis.

I LOVE to cook, so every meal is home cooked! NO ready meals or any of that crap! Half the meals I make I probably couldn’t make again as I just experiment and then cannot remember what the hell I put in it when I go back to make it again!

As mentioned previous in this post I currently consume 3000 calories on a daily basis and this is just maintenance for me. I have a very active job and train at a high intensity 5/6 days a week.

The only supplements I take on top of the above diet are:
Fish Oils
Multivitamin
Creatine
Green Tea Extract – Only when I am looking to cut for a Photoshoot or Holiday (let’s be honest we all like to look our best on holiday)

Fluid Intake:
4 Litres of Water per day
1 Black Coffee
1 Green Tea
