Apple and Peanut Butter

Posted: December 1, 2010 in It's All Important Stuff

The “Zone Diet” isn’t really a diet.  It is more of an eating plan.  This resonates for me.

If you have a crappy lunch, don’t make it worse by having french fries for dinner.  The idea is to get back to eating well as quickly as possible. This translates to training.  If you miss a few days, get back on it.

Yesterday, I felt like an athlete.  Up at the crack of 7:45, I had a scrambled egg and half an english muffin for breakfast.  For a nooner, I munched down cheater chicken, new potatoes and salad – which did not suck.  And for dinner, I had an apple with peanut butter.  The guys at HEAT worked my tail off on the RealRyder bike.  Work wasn’t too stressful.  All in all, this was a great day for an off-season triathlete.

It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. The trick is to string together a series of good days like this.

    Good job Todd.
    I will be writing about snacks and the combination of fruit with something longer lasting such as peanut butter. The goal is to create a combination of fruit with something that will provide enough calories to last for a few hours, otherwise you only have a spike in blood sugar, which results in a spike in insulin, which negatively affects your metabolism and your mood. Apples/bananas with peanut butter, strawberries (other fruit) with full fat content Greek yogurt.
    I usually try to stick with seasonal fruits, the fresher the fruit the better it is, we also need a greater amount of vitamin C during the winter months to boost our immune system, which you will find sufficiently in citrus fruits.
