Sample Daily Eating plan for Michelle:
On Rising: Pink grapefruit, hot water and fresh lemon juice, fish oil supplement.
Breakfast: 2 eggs, ½ avocado with 2 rice cakes.
Crossfit training Post workout: Whey protein shake made with Keifer milk, a banana and 2 tbsp. honey.
Lunch: Chicken/turkey and vegetables stirfried in coconut oil with white rice.
Dinner: Spinach salad with poached salmon darne, sauerkraut, fresh beetroot, and hummus with apple cider vinegar and olive oil dressing.
Before bed: Organic oats with ground chia seeds, desiccated coconut and almond butter.
My water intake is approximately 2.5 litres on training days, with 2 cups of white/green tea in addition. I also drink 3-4 cups of coffee per day made with KoKo coconut milk (Even PTs have their vices!!). Once I feel like caffeine isn’t affecting my sleep, and my energy levels aren’t becoming dependent on it, I’m happy. If I feel like it is, I will cut down to 2 cups per day.
I take fish oils first thing in the morning, with a B-complex which has added iron in it. I take chlorella and cilantro 3 times throughout the day – I recently had my mercury amalgam fillings removed so I am currently on a heavy metal detox protocol. I take Vitamin D3 on days when I haven’t had any sun exposure. I also take magnesium 1 hour before bed to help me unwind.
I am currently doing Crossfit in a competitive setting, with my first competition coming up in 3 weeks time. Crossfit is a combination of Olympic weightlifting, strength training, gymnastic and endurance training. Since this training is massively demanding, my calories and carbohydrate intake are very high for a girl. For the last few months, my priority is to perform to my maximum capacity and fully recover from each training session. My main training goal is no longer to be lean and have a low percentage body fat, and I am simply trying to maintain my weight at 68kg and 14% body fat while getting as strong and fit as possible for my upcoming competition. I am training approx. 7 days per week with 2 rest days. A typical week consists of 3 Olympic lifting sessions, 3 Crossfit session and 1 mobility/pre-/re-habilitation sessions to ensure I stay flexible, supple and injury free.
We’ve had loads of recent emails about what our staff are eating and why they train they way they do.
We want to practise what we preach so each week we will be doing a little Nutrition and Exercise snapshot of what a typical day looks like for them.
We are starting off with Andy:
Sample Daily Eating for Andy
5.15am: Two small spoons of almond butter
8am-9am: 4-5 eggs with spinach, tomato and peppers
1pm ish: Chilli con carne or 2 chicken breasts in pesto with 2 different servings of vegetables.
Pm: Post-workout large bowl of organic porridge oats made with water with 2 scoops of whey protein
Dinner 9pm: Turkey or fish based meal with small amount of veg
I try to drink between 3-4 litres of water and 4-6 green or peppermint teas throughout the day to stay hydrated!
Supplement wise, I take fish oil at each meal along with a daily supplement of vitamin D and B-active.
I am currently focusing on a Strength phase at the moment, training my legs 3 days per week ( heavy weights- front and back squatting).
