Mid morning (10:45-11:00am)

  • 1.0 Banana
  • 29.0 grams (1 serving) of wheat thins

Lunch (12:00pm)

Varies widely but generally something with about 400-500 calories.

Most days I also drink about 2L of water throughout the day. Probably closer to 3L on days I run. Some days I might have an extra big cup of tea in the morning.

On the weekend it’s more of a free-for-all. Jacqui and I typically go out with friends on either Friday or Saturday night (or both) and eat whatever looks good. Breakfast and lunch are generally the same, but I don’t count calories at all on the weekend.

For example: last weekend on Friday we went to Bluebird and ate chicken wings, frites, and cream cheese toasts, and I drank a 750ml bottle of belgium beer, then we went to a club with Lee and I had a PBR or two. On Saturday we went to Shaw’s and I had a few manhattans, a lobster roll, fries, and about 6 oysters. But we also ran on Saturday too, so… ;)
