The training course I did today was about how to manage your energy levels. There are definitely a few things that I could do differently. Such as:
- Eat within the first hour after you wake up. Because when you think about it, you have been fasting for about 6-8 hours.
- You should try to eat something every 4 hours. To all those people who laughed at me I am feeling vindicated! See, you are supposed to eat that often. But this means finding some more interesting snack foods.
- Instead of dealing with your usual “serving sizes” on the packaging, for each meal just go for 2 handfuls of grains, 2 handfuls of vegies/fruits and one handful of protein. If you want a “want” food such as cake/coke/alcohol you need to take away one of your grain portions. I think this sounds quite practical. But 5 handfuls of food actually works out to be a lot. Limiting the meat portion has always been quite difficult.
