I got so many requests to do a blog post about What I eat in a Day and I actually was not sure if I should post this because I personally think that it can be very misconceiving. I always make sure to eat: A lot of plant based foods, foods that respond well with my body and enough foods to reach my goals. I do not count my calories or track my macros! Since I am trying to put on weight I eat as much and often as I can while choosing mainly healthy options.
Now what works well for my body might not work well for yours, therefore I would always recommend you to find out what works best for you instead. The most misconceiving part is to think if you eat what I eat, you will look like I do, which is nonsense because there are so much more things to take into account like genetics, training, metabolism and so on.
Now that we cleared this out of the way, I just wanted to let you know that I always make sure to have protein, carbs and fats in every single meal. This supports the absorption of nutrients, adding fats in every meal helps you to stay satiated, and it helps me personally to get in a good balance of all macros at the end of the day. Today I ate 4 smaller meals and one large meal and this could vary from day to day depending on what I am doing that day. My body responds better to many smaller meals rather than 3 big ones, it keeps me more satiated and I avoid to get in the sate where I get reeeaally hungry and start snacking on crap. But this is just a personal preference.
