On the nutritional side of things, it's been a little more complicated. I have really worked with a licensed nutritionist for a little over a year now, and that has been a HUGE help. She has helped me tweak my diet and it has synced with my workout. On my high intensity days I usually consume a lot of protein. On off days, I try to stay medium-low carb. On a regular basis I drink a lot of water (think 10+glasses), I rarely drink alcohol, and most of the meat I eat is lean and low in fat (lean turkey, chicken breast, tuna, cod, and pork loin). As far as carbs go, I eat a lot of brown rice, basmati rice, oatmeal, and I load up on vegetables. Some of my favorite veggies are broccoli, asparagus, green beans, and cucumbers.
All in all , it has been an extremely difficult, but rewarding life change. I truly appreciate food in a different way now, and I hardly ever eat out, or eat anything fried. I enjoy eating things that make me feel better, and help me meet my goals. It's not really about "dieting" as much as it's about making lifestyle choices.
Everyone is a on a different path, and everyone has different goals. The important thing to remember is that everyone's path is different and we all need to do what is right for us. I think you just need to find what works for you, but I think focusing on workout intensity, and healthy eating is a huge part of my journey.
