For those who are fairly well organized and stick to a routine, what's your day looking like?
Meals, times, when do you lift, calories per meal, ect.

Cheers🍻

I am probably not ideal, as I eat like a teenager and hate to workout. I also despise water. However, over the past 25 years my bidy has adapted to my diet and methodology of training and I feel more fit and capable than most folks I know. I don’t have impressive 1 or 3 rep max numbers on any thing, but my goal is to be able to work at a steady pace for multiple hours, multiple days on limited calories. With this thought process I dont really care what the calories are, its all just fuel at this point. Generally, I eat about a meal a day during the hunting season and two meals the rest of the year, maybe a total of 2500 calories each day. I’ll burn an average of 3500-3700 each day. Not very scientific, but its simple and it works for me.

Been carnivore for 2 months now and whenever I eat anything except meat/eggs/dairy/nuts, my gas is atrocious.

Maybe somethings wrong with me.
I find myself the same way. It took some time for my body to adjust to this diet (2 months) I'd have to set my alarm 30min early in the morning to make time on the toilet lol

I'm not sure what my caloric intake is, but it's pretty high. I don't follow any "diet" or specific eating regime, but most (but certainly not all) my calories are pretty clean- meaning not a lot of processed foods.

My weight doesn't fluctuate and I'm not overweight, so something is working. I do workout 6-7 days a week, obviously that plays a huge role on calories in/out.

What I do find interesting is when I'm done with an arduous multi-day trip, I will usually eat non-stop for 2-3 days straight; would be fun to see what my calories in are in those 2-3 days- off the charts for sure! :D

Work out at 0500 (CrossFit for the last few months)

Skip breakfast

Lunch 1100-1200. Usually either cold cuts and cheese with mayo or plain or maybe with some pepper

Snack 1400-1500. Usually either a keto shake (water, no sugar protein powder, Avacado oil)

Dinner 1800-1830. Wild game of some sort, Avacado, broccoli or spinach. Some cheese. Maybe some homemade no sugar whipped cream for desert.

No real packaged foods unless I’m backpack hunting. Daily calorie intake is usually around 2,000 Cals

I’m 5’9” and 160 lbs.

Cheese is like the dark horse of dieting I swear. Hard to manage that one.

That rp strength app is pretty nice. Playing around with it at work, starting TRT Monday so I want to get back to a solid, strict diet. Fell off the wagon a while back.

At home and work I have just black coffee for breakfast, a small (500-750 calories) low carb lunch (ex. almonds, two cheese sticks, a small cup of unsweetened apple sauce with chia seeds), after work snack usually a protein bar with peanut butter, big dinner around 1,500 calories. I try to keep the daily carbs under 150 grams. On high output backpack trips and the day or two immediately following them, this eating plan goes out the window. I also enjoy a day long food fest after several days in the mountains.

I eat pretty much the same things all the time. For breakfast I have 5 eggs scrambled, with an avocado. Once a week I switch that for Greek yogurt. For lunch I have a spinach/turkey/cheese wrap, an Epic bar, and a quart ziploc of snap peas or cherry tomatoes. Occasionally I switch the wrap for a baked chicken breast. For dinner I have either chicken or steak or sausage with vegetables. I go to the gym and lift about five days a week and when I get home I have a protein shake. I eat way more food when I’m camping.

Really I should probably switch my diet up more but I like what I eat and I feel great, so I think I’ll keep doing it😁

53 in just over a month. 6' 180#

Breakfast is normally either a protein shake or a cliff bar and black coffee and usually friday is a half dozen donuts.
Lunch is either virtually always something made with wild game and occasionally grilled chicken with some veggies or salad.
Usually only eat dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings if we go eat out somewhere. Other wise may have a glass of chocolate milk or a protein shake or a bowl of cereal(cheerios or raisin bran mostly).

Snacks are cheez-its, jerky, mixed nuts mostly without peanuts or homemade granola. A high energy snack is cinnamon raisin toast with either peanut butter and honey or peanut butter and molasses.

Outside protein shakes or an occasional glass of chocolate milk, pretty much only drink black coffee, water and brewed green tea unsweet.

Did you mean you are eating around 3500 a day? I don't see how you can sustain a 1000-1200 daily calorie deficit for a prolonged period of time and gain strength or stamina.
