I’m currently training for my training plan (if that makes sense????) however I’m struggling with my diet. I’ve been running tonight and felt lethargic. My diet is ok but I need some help!! Any ideas?? Im struggling with breakfast and dinner (i work in an office). Thinking of Huel for breakfast…
Thanks in advance
This works for me (as Harry says above, diet is very person-specific so it may not be for everyone!) - but I've taken to eating 6/7 days of the week as a vegetarian.
It has forced me to include so much more veg than I normally would to fill myself up, as well as experimenting with some super tasty, amazing meals.
Generally I'd say unless you have an issue with them, introduce lots more veg to your diet, along with loads of water and maybe some supplements (vitamin d3 and a multivitamin are good if you feel you don't get enough from your diet).
It's also way cheaper to eat more veg as places like Lidl/Aldi have really fresh veg for not much at all. In addition make sure to eat lots of good carbs and if you can, dairy - I love greek yoghurt and fruit as a snack.
Cut out the processed stuff and where possible cook things from scratch! Lean in 15 is great for this as things don't take ages to cook.
I'd be interested to hear how you got on? Did you change your eating habits and find that happy place?! More importantly, how's the training going?
whenever I get tired after training i make a smoothie and add cacao to it which helps with fatigue.
