The Important bits 

My change of lifestyle had begun. September 2015, the carbs were ditched, though not entirely, protein was my main source of food. Be aware a totally carb free diet is near impossible, they are everywhere, fruits, salads, veg, are the good ones, it was the bread, pasta, potatoes, rice I ditched or have in moderation. As I put it I don’t actively add carbs to my diet, unless I have a race on the next day.

I discovered ways to get extra protein in my diet in the form of protein powder.  After any training I have a protein shake.

  • 1 scoop  protein powder,
  • 250 ml Alpro Almond milk or Coconut milk, these milks have less calories, more calcium than cow’s milk.

The famous protein pancakes my friends hear me banging on about.

  • 1 scoop protein powder,
  • 1 egg
  • Splash of milk

I eat these with Nutella, Almond butter, fruit with Greek yoghurt, Zero Syrup. A few pointers, I eat between 3-5 meals a day, I no longer pick in between meals as I don’t feel I need to, I never ever eat low fat, I don’t measure or weigh stuff. Coconut Oil instead of Olive oil to cook with, finally I drink 2-3 litres of water per day.

 chocolate protein pancakes with Nutella and banana.

The bottom line is exercise alone does not work for me, diets do not work for me,  and I most certainly am what I eat.

I buy my protein powders from cheaper than on the high street, fast delivery and very often some very good deals
