Beginning my adventure in Paleo … or is it Primal?

I have tried my best to be as healthy and fit as possible. Unfortunately I am the only one in my home that want to take this lifestyle with me. But I am hoping that I can lead by example and everyone else will follow my lead … in time.

I have tried a few different types of diets in the past few years. I had great success doing a carb/calorie cycling type of diet while doing Stronglifts 5×5 last year.

For some time I have read about this somewhat new diet called Paleo or Caveman or Hunter Gatherer diet. Been practically ignoring for some time but I keep stumbling upon it in my search for knowledge on how to improve my well-being. Read the rest of this entry »

My Post-workout Shake

Peanut butter is a semi-solid and can therefor...

I used to take a premade post-workout supplement until it got too costly and found out I can make my own at a fraction of the cost. Learned about this post-workout shake at the Stronglifts website titled: Quick, Easy & Effective Post Workout Shakes.

I didn’t change much to it but I guess I may as well post what and how exactly I do it my way.

What do I use?

Proatmeal: My Pre-workout Meal

Proatmeal: My Pre-workout Meal

I have worked out both fasted and with a pre-workout meal and what works best for me is eating something before I do my lifts. I tried different things to eat pre-workout from eggs, cereal, meat, rice cakes, etc. While reading stuff in online forums I stumbled upon something that has become my staple pre-workout meal for the past few months that seems to work for me. It is called Proatmeal. It is a good quick meal to make right after you wake up from your slumber!

What is “Proatmeal”?

That is it.
I like to add about 5-6 sliced strawberries on it for added flavor.
You can also use regular rolled oats but I like to use steel-cut oats as my pre-workout meal.
You can pretty much add ANYTHING to the mix as long as you have the oats and the protein powder in it!

I work night shift (11pm-7am) and still trying to figure out how to have proper meals while I am at work. I tend to drink 1 shake then eat a whole meal but still need a quick easy thing to eat before my shift is over. I found this recipe by one of my favorite fitness model and I find it to be surprisingly good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The recipe goes like this:
