Ditching Protein Powder, Tis’ the SeasonPosted: December 21, 2013
There are two thing I do more often when it is cold.
Well baby it’s cold outside.
Thankfully I have put on about 10 pounds of muscle since last June. I know because my body fat has not budged.
Last June… oi.
I am not bragging…. but given this moderate success I feel that I know a little about muscle building on a whole foods diet (no gluten, no sugar, no grains).
I crave carbs and I eat them by the pound in winter. I even drink them sometimes.
I used to be afraid of large meals. Part of me still is. Orthorexia is a constant mild nag me.
Orthorexia = a proposed eating disorder or mental disorder characterized by an extreme or excessive preoccupation with avoiding foods perceived to be unhealthy.
Like my thighs after squats.
No starving this winter though, not when there are so many heavy things that need picking up.
Here is a post lifting snack I have been hitting up lately.
Sean’s Post Lift Pie Jar:
- 2-3 hard boiled eggs
- 1/2 cup roasted winter squash (kombocha, pumpkin, delicata, acorn, butternut)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3 finger pinch salt
- little bit o coconut oil or olive oil.
Sounds a little gross, tasted a lot delicious.
Mush it all up and enjoy a jar of recovery nourishment.
Cheers to your health. Merry X Mass and happy new gains.
