Co-Movement Gym: A is A Health Podcast S1E14 - What We Eat In A Day (Extremely Different Approaches)
Updated: Aug 16
Dr. Ricky McDonough: I only eat One Meal A Day (OMAD). Sometimes I eat my one meal in the evening or sometimes I consume my one meal around my workout in the morning. When I eat in the morning I normally consume all of my calories between 5 AM – 9 AM and when I eat in the evening I normally eat between 6 PM – 8 PM. I shoot for at least 1.0 g of protein per pound of bodyweight and then fill the rest of my calories with carbs and fat. I generally shoot for at least 20-30% of my calories to come from fat and the rest from carbs. I normally stay away from refined carbohydrates and most of my carbs come from vegetables or fruit. I stick to single ingredient foods and I generally try to keep my added sugar as low as possible. I keep my calories around 2000-2500 calories per day.
Andy Cieply: I am more of a grazer at least during this time of the year. I tend to eat 3 bigger meals and 3 smaller meals throughout the day. I keep my calories around 3000-3500 calories per day. I try to get at least 100 g of protein or 150 g of protein per day. I eat a unique breakfast that consists of dark chocolate (90%) every morning and a protein shake (V-Thrive Grass Fed Whey Protein). Currently, I eat a higher fat diet. My general rule is to prioritize protein, then get enough fats, and then fill my remaining calories with carbs.
Josh Lewis: I don’t count my calories, but would guess my calories are around 3000 per day. I tend to eat 3 bigger meals and 3 smaller meals throughout the day. Normally do not eat till 10 AM or 11 AM. I try to get at least 20-30 g of protein per meal. I normally stick to an even 1/3 split between all 3 macro nutrients. Two supplements I highly recommend are ION*Biome: ION*Gut Health and a vitamin D supplement. I don’t stick to the same meals every day, but I make sure everything is organic and single ingredient foods. Sometimes as a snack I like to eat dark chocolate or have raw goat milk. I normally eat higher fat diets, but it really depends on my activity level. If my activity level is higher, then I will tend to eat vegetables that are higher in carbs. If I have a lower activity day, then I might have lower carb vegetables and sometimes grab some macadamia nuts to snack on.
