April Nutrition Blog

By |April 12th, 2015|Nutrition|Comments Off on April Nutrition Blog|

Our April Nutrition Blog features Dr. Stacy Sims, Co-Founder of Osmo Nutrition. We asked Stacy for a sample meal plan for the workday with two-a-day workouts.

With two-a-day training sessions, there are several goals to keep in mind. The first is hydrating and fueling for the first workout to be able to effectively achieve the stress needed to trigger adaptations. The second goal is to recover quickly from this workout, maintain even energy throughout the busy work day, and boost energy for the second workout. The final goal is to recover well from the second workout to hit it all again the next day. (An additional complication may be fatigue and calorie intake- with fatigue, an increase in carbohydrate cravings occurs; and inadequate recovery will promote fatigue and cravings; which may increase overall calorie intake). The overarching idea to mitigate fatigue and improve recovery is increasing overall protein intake, in particular, high leucine content protein.
How might this look?

Wake up/5:30 a.m.

Pre-training snack 5:45
Espresso with 4oz almond milk and 1 scoop protein powder(15g) OR 5g BCAAs

Training: 6:00-7:30
DURING the 90 mins: ~20-24oz fluid (Osmo or 20oz water with 1/16th tsp salt and 1 tsp maple syrup).

Breakfast BY 8 a.m.: your high protein recovery!! Within 30 min of finishing your session (If it takes longer to get to your breakfast, then have 16oz fluid- ½ water, ½ milk alternative, with 20g protein powder+5g BCAAs):

Quinoa bowl (4 servings):
1 cup organic almond milk (unsweetened)
1 cup water
1 cup organic quinoa, (note: rinse quinoa)
2 cups fresh blackberries, organic preferred
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted*
4 teaspoons maple syrup
Combine milk, water and quinoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to [...]
