    I fucking warned you, nancy.

    Here's an idea for you, I do this after training at least once or twice a week.

    I buy the carton of egg white. Just purely for my own reasons, I understand the benefits of the egg yolk, but I like the eggs whites. I will put on the pan, put some Omega-3 cooking oil in the pan and put the liquid egg yolks in the pan. I will then make either half a can of Amy's Organic Refried Beans. I go take a quick shower while they are cooking and then prepare a tortilla wrap with the cooked egg whites, cooked refried beans, peach and pineapple salsa and some shredded cheese.

    the beans, egg and cheese provide a good source of protein for the post workout needs.



    I've since switched to a trail mix of oatmeal, almonds, raisins, cranberries, and other assorted goodies.
    This sounds good. When you get bored, which you will, change it up with coconut, dates, dried cherries, cashews, yogurt raisins, carob raisins.

    I assume you meant liquid egg whites there - I'm a pretty big fan of 'em myself. $2 for a 500mL carton at Costco is a pretty good deal protein-wise. Right now I rock some scrambled eggs in the morning on weekends - would do one daily but I don't get out of bed early enough.

    What cooking oil do you use? I just picked up a big bottle of extra virgin olive oil - figured I'd use it instead of butter for muffins, etc..

    Also, if it's not infeasible (for lactose/budget/etc. reasons), you might want to down a whey protein shake before you start cooking and shower. It'll give you a quick hit of protein that should last until the eggs and beans are done.

    Yes, thanks....I meant the whites.
    Don't want mrbadyguy making a couple dozen Rocky shakes and have a heart attack.

    or

    Sometimes the store is out of one or the other.


    I also use the Smart Balance Omega-3 spread. I have tried the Omega-3 eggs and didn't like the consistancy.

    I've tried them and....well....I can't tolerate the shakes. I will have an Odwalla drink instead.

    So, I'm going to go ahead and repost what I'm eating today, because as of this morning I've gained 4 pounds since starting this diet. Yes, yes, I know you can't judge progress/lack thereof by weight, but it is reassuring to hear people say "You're eating ok". Assume for everything but dinner I'm drinking Green Tea, and for each dinner I drink a glass of skim milk.

    Breakfast:
    Kashi GoLean
    Banana
    Bagel w/ Lowfat cream cheese

    Breakfast 2:
    Turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, with cheese
    Cottage Cheese (I found out they sell cottage cheese similar to yogurt, in to go cups)
    Yogurt covered raisins
    Cheese stick

    Lunch 1:
    Turkey Sandwich on whole wheat bread, with cheese
    Yogurt
    Orange
    Trail mix (Each bag has 2 servings; 1 serving size = 120 calories, 40 from fat, total fat 4.5g (saturated 1.5), 45mg of sodium, 50mg of potassium, 14g sugars, 2g fiber, 1g protein)

    Lunch 2:
    Turkey Sandwich on whole wheat bread, with cheese
    Carrots
    Apple

    Dinner 1:
    Depends, last night was refried beans and lean chicken + cheese, nestled within a whole wheat tortilla

    Dinner 2:
    See Dinner 1


    To be honest, I didn't even think the pre-made trailmix I bought would contain so much sugar. Is that innocent green baggie of deliciousness the cause of my woes?

    Sounds like you had an epiphany. Just to make your life a bit more difficult, an item of food can have a low sugar count but still have a high glycemic/insulin index thanks to starches and other carbohydrates. This is why the Atkins types are always talking about "impact carbs" and the like. For me, unless I know the carbohydrate composition of a food beforehand (like skim milk), I assume that any carbohydrates that aren't fiber are straight glucose for the purposes of structuring my diet.

    Also, there have been some other people here who have posted about websites to track macronutrient totals. I haven't used them myself (I use a spreadsheet for that), but maybe you could try one of 'em out and figure out what your macronutrient balance is like?

    *busts out crystal ball*

    I foresee... lots of carbohydrates.

    *puts away crystal ball*

    It was a typo not an anti-egg vendetta.

    Why do you hate the egg: bringer of life, so much?
