There have been several people on the site who have had discussions about their eating habits (I loathe the word diet) and their exercise regime. I thought it would be fun to share what we do. First, some inspirational words from Oprah, ruler of us all: Here are things I eat: Snacks: Organic yogurt with fruit (all natural sugars, no high fructose corn syrup)--Stoneyfield farms Almonds and other assorted nuts Kashi--go lean bars (Trail mix, peanut butter, honey almond flax) Dried fruits Fresh Fruit (grapes, pears, bananas, apples, oranges) Breakfast: Bowl of cereal (bran) Cup of Orange Juice Yogurt Lunch: Spinach salad Boiled egg, cucumber, tomato, onion Cheese 1 Can of albacore tuna or slices of chicken breast or broiled fish Low fat, low sugar dressing (I eat the same lunch Monday-Friday) Dinner: Anything sensible Also, I started drinking protein shakes to help build more muscle. I found Designer Whey at the bulk food store and it tastes good and seems to be working. One shake immediately after my workout and another at mid-morning. Here is my workout. Please note that I am never in the gym more than 35-45 minutes. Monday: Chest and Legs Inclined Hammer press Flat bench Flys Decline press Leg Press Leg Raises (quads) Calf raises Tuesday: Arms Standing curls Preacher curls Triceps push downs on pulley machine Forearm raises Bike for 15 minutes Thursday: Shoulders Military press on hammer machine Front shoulder raises Side shoulder raises Rear deltoid lifts Bike for 15 minutes **this is probably my lightest workout. I hurt my right shoulder 5 years ago and the pain intermittently returns** Friday: Back and Core Rows on hammer machine Lat pull down (forward facing) Rear lat pull down Forward lat pull down (with closed grip attachment) Crunches, leg lifts, etc.
