The Fitness Lifestyle, Part 19

So we’ve finally arrived at the moment you’ve all been waiting for: meal ideas! And menus to assist in your quest to become as fit as possible for the upcoming summer months! We’ve already gone over the nuts and bolts of this “super-charged” GYMGUYZ program — high-intensity cardiovascular exercise, terrific workouts, GYMGUYZ-style, and high-quality, nutrient-dense food, in proper proportions… and portions.

An important note: feel free to mix and match foods and add/subtract portion sizes based on such things as gender/age/weight/outside activity level. Your GYMGUYZ trainer should play a pivotal role in this part of the process. As he or she will tell you, the portions may be adjusted up or down… but the nutritional theory behind the food choices are a constant. Here are a bunch of sample breakfasts to get your day started off on the right foot…


Two servings regular oatmeal

1/2 sliced peach (which can be added to the oatmeal if desired)

4 egg white omelet with tomato, onion, and green peppers


Two servings slow-cooked grits

4 oz. skim milk or lowfat soy milk (stir into cereal)

1 serving nonfat Greek Yogurt


4 oz. lowfat cottage cheese

Two servings cream of wheat

1 piece of fruit (your choice)

Up next week… Lunch!
