I get SO many emails and messages with questions about what I ate on my 107-pound weight loss journey and what I eat now that I am maintaining. The truth is - it’s pretty much the same! I simply get to enjoy a few extra hundred calories per day because I am no longer trying to create a deficit. But my calorie intake also depends on whether or not I am prepping for a powerlifting meet or a photoshoot.
Here is a glimpse into what I ate yesterday - the breakfast and morning snack edition! :)
Breakfast: I have eaten the SAME breakfast every day for the past 5+ years. Are you ready for this?! It’s my absolute FAVORITE meal of the day and I look forward to it every morning.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Oatmeal
· ½ cup old fashioned oats
· 1 scoop Isopure Dutch Chocolate protein powder
· 2 Tbsp Honeyville Organic Powdered Peanut Butter
· Cook oatmeal in microwave with water for 1 minute
· Add protein and powdered peanut butter
· Mix and add water until desired consistency is achieved
Morning Snack #1
is 1/4 cup of raw almonds and 1 cup of fresh blueberries. Sometimes I’ll do raspberries, blackberries, strawberries or a Honeycrisp apple to mix things up - but the almonds are the constant!
Morning Snack #2
consists of six scrambled egg whites and 1/4 to 1/2 an avocado, drizzled with Cholula Original hot sauce.
I also make it a point to drink 64 oz of water in the morning, which is two of these 32 oz Nalgene bottles (all four get consumed before 8pm each day!)
