I've been hesitant lately to do a "WIAW" post just because as I've said before, everyone's body is different and no diet plan will work the same way for everyone. I don't want people to copy what I eat exactly and expect to get the same results I have gotten. It is just to give you an idea of how I eat on a consistent basis and to give you some meal ideas.

I also want to point out that while I DO try to eat as healthy as I can, I am not super super strict and 100% healthy with my diet all the time, simply because that's how I stay consistent. I don't eat chicken or fish and broccoli at every meal, I put cheese in my eggs, and have simple carbs after a workout. There are some things I need to work on (more veggies!!!!!!), but this way of eating for me is stress free and maintainable, and that is key. I am not paleo, vegan, low carb, low fat, gluten free or any of that.

Because I am not super restrictive, don't count calories and macros, and allow myself to have treats here and there, I don't feel deprived(most of the time-I do miss my cereal and Doritos, though!)I am able to eat this way as a lifestyle and not just a temporary diet.  This is the reason I never stray from clean eating or just "quit" my diet and go for weeks or months on end eating bad food. This is just how I eat, and it will be this way forever. :)

  1. Thanks for the post Lindsay! I need to definitely start increasing a little more at each meal, but overall I'm pretty similar to you. I don't follow a super restrictive diet, but rather try to make sure I'm eating lean proteins at all of my meals and then just making healthy choices. I try to prep my food ahead of time which helps out a lot! But like you, I miss my cereal breakfasts! :)

    1. You're welcome. :)Maybe try to increase your healthy fats, as that would add more calories to your diet. And muscles need calories! Prepping food ahead of time has been a lifesaver for me for sure!Sounds like you're on the right track!

  2. Hey! I was wondering what your thoughts on using something like Athletic Greens in a smoothie or something to help get all your "veggies" in? Like you, I am not good with all the veggies. If I do eat them, they must be covered in ranch or butter. So, I have been looking at this stuff for awhile, but was not sure. Just wondering what your opinion on this would be!

    Thanks,
    Jennifer

    1. Honestly, I've heard of them but haven't really looked into it. I think it would be definitely worth considering if you hate veggies as much as me! I have thought about taking something like that, but I'm just too cheap to want to spend money on another supplement!
