God its great writing again. For all the readers out there, I am sorry for being missing for a little while from the blog. Currently going through a bit of a "crunch period" for my family at the moment but I'm not going to disclose that much information on that anytime soon just yet... :D
Coming back to the diet list, there were some people that was asking me on what are my diet when it comes to training for marathons. In comparison to regular training, marathon training does require you to have a higher intake of carbs and calories to get you going for long distance (period) running. So, potatoes and pastas are real friends of mine when it comes to this period of training.
So, here is my suggestion for a higher level of carb diet, suitable for runners in training!
Calorie intake: 2358.9 cals
Protein intake: 169.4 grams
Carbs intake: 272.4 grams
Fat intake: 72.2 grams
Breakfast: Quaker Oats + Yoghurt
Mid Morning: Peanut Butter Sandwich in Wholemeal Bread
Lunch: Nasi Goreng Ayam (Fried Rice with Chicken)
Mid Afternoon Snack: Tuna in Water (Can)
After Workout: Protein Shake (single scoop) + Banana
Dinner: Homemade Spaghetti Bolognaise
Supper: Protein Shake (single scoop) + Banana
[Nothing beats a Homemade Spaghetti Bolognaise...]
One of the key aspect with this diet suggestion is to make sure that the food you eat is HOMEMADE and try to avoid eating from shops or outside (except for lunch but it would better if you can make that from home as well). The reason why I would like to stress this out is because with higher level of calorie and carb diet, you need to make sure that your meals are clean. Going outside to eat meals like this might include other things in the meal that might jeopardize that calculation.
So do give your thoughts on this and do also share if you have any other diet ideas as well! I might include this in the post!
