Marathon Training Meals (Week 4 of 13)

After getting back to a normal routine after last week’s vacation, I did pretty well this week in maintaining a relatively clean diet.  Lots of fruits and vegetables, healthy doses of carbohydrates to fuel my endurance training, moderate amount of meat (mostly fish) and minimal junk food – although still needed my chocolate fix every so often.

I seem to be doing a fairly good job in balancing my calorie intake with my energy expenditures.  My weight stayed pretty close to what I weighed last week, but I can tell I’m actually getting muscularly leaner with the increased training intensity.

Start – 144.4 lbs (65.5 kg)

Week 1  – 141.5 lbs (64.2 kg)

Week 2 – 143.5 lbs (65.1 kg)

Week 3 – 143.1 lbs (64.9 kg)

Week 4 – 143.7 (65.2 kg)

Here’s a list of the core things I ate:  Rice, natto, vegetables, bananas, apples, oranges, sushi, noodles, whole wheat cereal, almonds, eggs, chocolate, tofu, breads, protein smoothies, yogurt, Ben & Jerry’s frozen yogurt, tea, sweat potato, miso soup, soy milk, coffee and tap water.

Below are pictures of what I ate all week.
