Freshman question here concerning the 6-12-12 rule that I found: I actually am nearly never hungry until at least midmorning. (I wake up for work at 4:30am and I get hungry around…usually 9:30 to 11am. My doctor doesn’t want me to skip meals. But breakfasting that early literally make me sick. (Like the food never makes it to my stomach and it’s just hanging around somewhere just below my collarbone) Sooooo What I’ve been doing is blending a Protein shake (160 cal, 4g carbs, 3g fat, 30g protein) one serving of greek non-fat plain yogurt (90 cal, 6g carb, 16g protein) and one scoop of super greens (45 calories, 0 fat, 11g carbs, 2g protein) …sometimes a tablespoon of cinnamon just for the sweetness depending on the flavor of the protein drink….the night before and then I sort of just sip it from just after I take my FBS until its gone somewhere between my lunch break (10:30) and last break (1pm). This seems to work well for me because I’m neither sick all day from breakfast, nor overeating at dinner because I wasn’t hungry at lunch….
Based on the literature I’m seeing, I already know I’m going to have to substitute a fatty yogurt for the one I’m buying now. But. My question:—Even though I’m not really eating breakfast or lunch, but rather doing a sort of steady drip of calories from breakfast to lunch….I’m still getting around the same carbs in the same amount of time….soooo I’m still good, right? As long as there are still at least 12 free carbs left over for dinner?
Walked this morning in the rain and then ran errands in town. Broke a 24 hour fast with a crunchy stir fry. In a shallow frying pan I melted 19g salted butter then added 1 tbsp hemp oil. Allowed this to heat through on a medium heat. Then to the pan I added 101g chopped mushrooms and 42g diced radishes. In a seperate pan I was par boiling 104g broccoli florets. Once I was happy with the broccoli I drained it and left it to one side. In the frying pan I now added 30g pili nuts and a quarter tsp cayenne pepper. Moved this around for a minute or so before adding the broccoli and prawns. This cooked until the prawns changed colour and finally I added 15g hemp seeds. I peeled an avocado, 111g and added 2 tbsp sour cream to accompany my stir fry. Great way to refuel and it really hit the spot. Have a great Wednesday folks, stay safe and healthy
