- The snack is not as bad as she lays it out to be. Peanut Butter is a healthy fat and having some chocolate with it kills those cravings later in the day. The downside to her choice is that the chocolate seems to be larger than a serving size.
- I would suggest that the avocado only be 1/2 since that is a serving size which contains about 140 calories. The good news is that avocado is a healthy fat just like peanut butter. Fat is a good thing to have in your body as an endurance athlete and limiting fat intake can be detrimental to performance during training or racing. Select healthy fats and eat in portion sizes and your body will thank you.
- Love the breakfast. Granola (fiber), Fruit (fiber, carbs), Yogurt (protein, fats) is a great way to start the day and hit all your macronutrients.
- Dinner is excellent as well. You have it all in terms of carbs, fiber, protein, iron (spinach) all in one plate.
Outside of the In N Out burger this day is something I would call a success. The one item I cannot comment on is the number of calories and what type of exercise was done that day. Remember that food is fuel and should be viewed that way.
