Probably one of the most often asked questions is "What meal plan should I follow while attending boot camp?"
I just received the question last night via email, so I'll share my response here.
A long time ago body builders really nailed what it takes to get lean. Whole foods, paying particular attention to proteins, vegetables, a tiny amount of fruit (some people can tolerate more than others), and some healthy fats like olive oil.
Stay away from sugars, simple carbs, and of course junk food.
I could really complicate things and go on an on, but what I've said is what works without any fluff.
I used to believe in the theory of eating 5 small meals per day, but I don't believe that is a must. If you feel OK go ahead and have some coffee, maybe a little bit of protein before your workout...and then plan on eating between 1-8 PM. Plan on a high quality meal for dinner...or for lunch and dinner.
Eat the highest quality food that you can afford, such as grass fed beef, and organic produce when possible.
Include a cheat meal once a week just to stay happy, and to also wake up your metabolism.
Simple, but not always easy.
