u utilize my food saver. I make my meals (except dinner) for a long time in one shot, like cook a turkey, some chicken breasts and pork tenderloins. I divide them up into 8 oz portions, and include an 6 oz portion of either sweet potatoes or quinoa, and 6 oz of veggies.

My usual preworkout meal is 8oz of plain roasted turkey breast, 6 oz of plain broccoli or peas, and 6 oz of sweet potatoes or quinoa.

The meal size is small but i eat 5 meals a day.


the foodsaver is a bit expensive, but my meals average about $2 in cost per meal. that is fantastic compared to what new york city takeout prices are, and the convenience is unbeatable. full healthy meals at my disposal all the time

Damn that sounds good, but my body can't do that. I need my food digested, so If I were to eat before I work out, i need to wait at least 2 hours.

I like to work out first thing in morn thou, better for weight loss.

an apple or a mixed fruit smoothie in a blender 30-45minutes before a workout. its been studied that one banana has enough nutrients and carbs to fuel a 2 hour workout..or something like that..

Tuna Pasta. Has your protein for your muscles and your carbs for your workout. If you're after something lighter just have a banana or two.

I just excercise after my dinner at night so I eat whatever I'm having for dinner that night! And no, I've never felt sick - probably cos I don't do any running!

I usually eat a bowl of rice or a banana an hour or so before practice. Afterwards, if I'm feeling hungry, I'll eat a handful of unsalted, plain almonds.

I've noticed that if I eat anything spicy, or anything with a high vinegar content (pickled) before practice, it's Hiroshima on my gut.
