Diet anyone??
« on: January 31, 2015, 08:26:30 PM »
I think that a daily diet is something to touch on in a logging forum. As I have posted in another thread, I have been chasing a hydro Ax for the last nearly 3 weeks. Due to breakdowns I fell some ERC for 4 days, but have mainly been limbing and topping pine at a wide open pace. In a 10 hour day I have been bumping almost unimaginable numbers averaging up to 17 loads.

Today my body hit the wall...due to pushing a frantic pace day in and day out...ummm also as some know in the "Off-line Version", I have quite the night life also! LOL! Anyway, I think that I wouldn't be holding up as well if I didn't have a fierce appetite. My breakfast consists of 3 fried eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, and biscuits and gravy. Lunch is a couple peanut butter sandwiches. And dinner has been seemingly focusing on SubWay. I take a daily vitamin but I am not at the moment taking any real supplements...but hops is always on the evening menu.  ;)

Lets hear what you guys are eating in order to hold your body weight and provide your energy for your daily grind.

Thanks!

Toast and 2 cups of coffee,then 2 banana's at 10am,lunch is a sandwich of some sort w/juice mixed 1/2&1/2 water.Supper is the big meal,usual fare. I have a 2 liter of water w/lemon juice in it to sip on all day long.Oh, and goodies when I can get em.
Worked an exceptional day fri. and ended up with leg cramps,so it'll be an extra banana a day for a while.I also take multi vitamins and super B complex.

2 muffins and a cup of coffee at 6am. cup of yogurt, granola bar and an apple/orange at 9am. sandwich container size portion of last nights leftovers and an iced tea at noon. (heated on the defroster in winter) usually a couple cookies in the afternoon at some point. and somewhere between a 2 quarts and gallon of Gatorade mixed half strength over the course of the day.

dinner is whatever wifey makes. we aren't total organic types but she avoids pre-processed foods and preservatives as much as possible. dinner is at six and ill usually have a bowl of either ice cream or cereal before bed. no alcohol or tobacco.

Good point Ed_K, fluid intake is definitely essential! Coffee in the morning and a gallon of sweet tea is my go to. I used to burn down a redbull but I can't help but notice a crash later when the redbull loses its affect. Like you mentioned, bananas are always good to pack to your stash sites! I kind of like to take grapes on occasion...but ants find them easy it seems.

Coffee and a muffin (or 3 depending on the size), plus a banana before I start. At least three bologna or roast beef sandwiches throughout the day. Mix in a small bag of chips, and three mini-snickers bars. I'm also drinking water and gatorade, more when it's hot out. Normal dinner, and no caffeine after 8:00 pm. I take lots of vitamins nightly. Since I've been taking magnesium supplement tablets, I've not any arm or hand cramps.

Bologna is terrible for you though. Cold cuts like ham and cheese are nice winter (on the heater) and summer. Lots of yogurt. That stuff has everything you need it seems. Lots of coffe all day with fruits whenever I need a munch. I do eat chips and snacks to. And I've found mixed nuts are like a energy boost for me. And keeps me feeling full longer.

Bananas and tomatoes are high in potassium, but not as high as the magnesium pills.

I have really cut down, with a desk job I am not as active so have to watch it or it all collects over my belt. When I was physically active I burned a lot of calories, started the day with a good breakfast of cereal or bacon and eggs with toast juice and coffee. Without that I was famished by 10. Lunch was usually a sandwich and coffee on the run. Supper meat, potatoes and veggies.  I still eat 3 meals but much smaller portions. Cut beer down (no hard liquor) to two glasses on a Saturday afternoon with friends which really helped.

Mmm I ate to much when I was younger I guess.    I always started my day with mixing bowl of cereal  5:30. cheerios   8:30 3 eggs bacon and 2 slices toast 10:00 coffee. Sandwich.  12:00 full meal potatoes meat veggies. 3:30 coffee sandwich   6:30 supper potatoes meat veggies  snack 10:00 icecream   ....
Now : 5:30 coffee  2 eggs meat  noon sandwich  6:30 potatoes meat veggies  much smaller portion than I used to. No snack. 
And I'm 25 lb a heavier.  Lol.
I don't think I ever walked Anywhere always ran.  Now I walk and live life at a slower pace
Must have had a tremendous metabolism ..
My dad ate the same way.  He's 92 I'm 67.  He still helps split wood with a axe or a maul

A healthy diet is extremely important for somebody who's working outside all day long. I have suffered from issues the last two years myself with being chronic fatigue and no appetite ( lost 25 lbs )  185 now.  Checked my lungs and thyroids, checked for lime disease, all negative. Then found out that my ph level was way out of whack. I too take magnesium now and multi vitamins and things have improved. Back on track. :)
My wife and I also grow our own food as much as we can and avoid the stuff packed with preservatives. 
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Wait, I thought dinner was a big plate of bacon and fried eggs!!! 

I usually fix a sandwich for breakfast, roast beef, cheese, on a whole wheat bun and warm it up. Find that lasts a lot longer than most anything else. Grab a banana on the way out the door and have one of those Bolthouse protein milk drinks.

I usually have a light breakfast of one sandwich usually sausage and bacon on white bread. Lunch depends on the season, sometimes junk like vienna sausages or spam. In the summer I lean toward pasta it's full of carbs and tends to give me a boost. I try to eat right as it makes me feel lot's better. I also drink a half gallon of water daily and half gallon of unsweet tea. Supper is whatever the wife has made, which I may add is always done when I arrive home ;) I have a keeper. Now if I could just fix my innability to sleep I would be all set.
