IIFYM Full Day of Food

I haven’t done a what I ate Wednesday post in FOREVER. Normally I just forget to take a photo of allll my meals for the day, but luckily I did the other day, it’s a miracle. I also made a YouTube video, so I’ll post that at the bottom if you want to watch it instead of see the photos!

Of course, link up with Jenn if you join!

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

If you aren’t aware, i’ve been reverse dieting so slowly increasing my calories each week. I’ve been experimenting with different ratios as well, so carbs are up and I’m loving my progress. So let’s jump into it!

Breakfast

Honestly this is so weird, but I’ve been obsessed with this breakfast. I’ve been craving sweet and savory in the mornings, so I have two slices of toast – one slice with laughing cow, spinach, tomato, and turkey breast or chicken; the other slice with strawberry cream cheese and almond butter (it’s like a pb&j). So good! Best of both worlds. And of course, this is after two cups of coffee 😉

Lunch

Homemade turkey burger topped with trader joes tahini sauce (LIFE), roasted brussel sprouts, and homemade sweet potato fries with ketchup. Probably my favorite meal lately!

Pre-workout

I alwaaaays have majority of carbs pre and post workout, so I have lots of carbs to play with in these meals!

Protein cereal. Honey nut chex, honey nut cheerios, slap nutrition birthday cake protein, and strawberries. #ilovecereal #andcarbs

Post-workout/Dinner

I know a ton of people have like pop tarts and stuff post-workout, but I’m always craving real food after a hard workout! Makes me feel good, too.

Veggies, chicken, and rice. This is white/golden rice I believe, and I digest it so much better than the brown.

Dessert

No explanation needed. Spooning coconut butter (this is chocolate brownie and vanilla cupcake flavors) of sweet spreads and chocolate chips – HEAVEN.

I eat chocolate every.single.day. And to think there was a time where I never ate it…. never again.

And that’s it! A full day of food. Macros for the end of the day was around 220c, 70f, 140p.

 

What meal/food are you loving lately?

Favorite carb? GO!

  1. Chocolate every day here too!!
    And I am super jealous of that dessert! We need more nutbutter flavors over here.

  2. Thank you for sharing Brittany! I always enjoy seeing and reading what other people enjoy eating. It gives me ideas of what I should make for our home meals!

  3. Mmmm I love how you love real food meals and are eating to fuel your body. So inspirational for those who are also trying to reverse diet but are having some issues. I always love my protein zoats whether they are after or before my workouts but I have been lovin my postworkout zoats with pineapple and a chocolate/pb diesel whey icing as of lately. So so good.

    Favourite carb?? Oats or kabocha hands down.

  4. I really want to try that trader joes tahini sauce… I have heard about it from multiple people and it sounds right up my alley. I also love that breakfast because that’s totally something I would do. Sweet and savory is where it’s at.

  5. I don’t think your breakfast is weird… that’s brilliant! But I’m a little weird… so there’s that. LOL!

  6. Chocolate and almond butter are my nightly snack. Everything in moderation, right?

  7. Fruit and chocolate are my go-to snacks!

  8. I love your sweet & savory breakfast meal. I’m keeping this page up so I don’t forget to try it.. because well I’ll probably forget all about it if I write it down somewhere. lol. Hope your having a mic week, Brittany!

  9. Your food! THAT LUNCH! Ugh, I love it all.

    Can I ask what you put in your homemade turkey burgers. ( Aside from turkey…).

    I adore your youtube , and you BTW.
    Xxx

  10. need that breakfast now!

  11. Hey Brittany,
    is it normal to gain weight during the reverse diet phase? Technically i should be on Week 5 of my increasing, but i noticed i am at 3 pounds heavier than my starting weight, so i have kept myself at week 3 calories due to the 3 pounds that i noticed i gained. Should i force myself to ignore the weight gain and increase my calories weekly anyway? Or do i need to continue holding myself at Week 3’s macros until i drop back to my starting weight OR, do i see if i continue to maintain the 3 lb weight increase where i’m at, and increase to week 4? I’m not concerned with these 3 lbs …but more just a steady increase. I’d like to avoid that! 🙂
    Thanks!

      Hi Olivia!

      Yes, it is normal. I’ve gained weight for sure. You want to look at steady increases though. If you’re jumping like 5 lbs a week or something crazy, scale back a bit or slow down. But .5-1lb a week is pretty normal. It could also be the increase in carbs or muscle though.. don’t think it’s all fat!

  12. Did you do a bodybuilding program? How did it work? 🙂 That breakfast looks scrumptious.

  13. SUH-WEET potatoes!!!!!!!! But I have soooooo many foods that I love it’s so hard!
