Replacement for protein shake


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Starting another W30 on August 1st.

As the kids are off school I have to go to my CF classes in the evening at 6.30pm (Mon & Weds). So I have been having a Sunwarrior vegan protein shake on almond milk + frozen banana at 4.30pm and then having my main meal when I get home at about 8pm.

What will I have instead of this that will keep me going between lunch (12.30/1pm) and late dinner that will not repeat on me during class (burpees => pukies!) but won't be too heavy (dare I say it, calorific - I have some weight to lose :( )

How about a solid pre workout meal of protein+fat half an hour to an hour before? A few hb eggs, a tin of tuna in olive oil, chicken and avo or olives, a burger patty with avo or mayo or bacon, etc? It might be a tough adjustment for a couple weeks to forego the carbs pre wo, but once you're fat adapted, performance should

improve, and it should also help with fat loss.

Thanks guys,

Tina I'm in Ireland so don't have access to any of that fancy stuff :)
I will try the protein + fat combo, but eggs and tuna, no, I can imagine stinky burp(ee)s!
I never figured out the whole pre/post workout nutrition thing.
