My Daily Diet
By: Kevin Larrabee
In the last few weeks I have been getting e-mails asking what my daily diet and weekly training regimen consists of. For this entry we will only be focusing on diet.
My mornings start with an omega-3 omelet 99% of the time. I use 5-6 eggs and throw in some red, yellow, and orange peppers, some onion, and whatever low-fat cheese I have lying around, generally mozzarella. I also have one servings of Greens+ Berry to finish of the meal before heading to the computer to answer e-mails.
My next meal of the day, or so it has been since working at Cressey Performance has been two-96% lean hamburger patties from Trader Joe’s (TJ’s). I also use 1 tablespoon of either Reduced Sugar Ketchup from Heinz or TJ’s Organic Ketchup. Generally I have 2-3 cups of green beans or broccoli with that.
At this point I am at CP so I hit up the cafeteria to get a salad with mixed greens, a good amount of chicken (one chicken breast), cut cucumber, red peppers, and pepperoni.
About 2.5 hours later I follow that up with 1.5-2 cups of cottage cheese with 2 tablespoons of cinnamon and 1-2 teaspoons of Splenda.
One hour prior to training I have 2-scoops of Black Star Labs Ultra Peptide Pro 2.0 (Chocolate) and a handful of reduced salt almonds from (TJ’s).
Pre/during workout I use ICE (5-6 scoops) in 16 ounces of water
Post-workout I mix 1 scoop of Surge with 1 scoop of UP 2.0.
When I get home from the gym I have a turkey breast pita (low carb) with a small salad.
Right before bed I either repeat the cottage cheese mixture or have 1.5 scoops of UP 2.0.
That is it more or less; I will follow these up with what supplements I use, my top 10 Trader Joe purchases and more.
I talked to Brian St. Pierre after I wrote this up and it was good to get some constructive criticism. He pointed out two things:
- Add some berries or an apple in the morning
- Cut down to 6 meals but the same amount of food.
