So today was interesting… but it definitely has me double checking my choices now. I brought my protein and L-Glutamine shake with me and basically consumed it when the cubical dynamics slowed down enough. During my “lunch” break, I felt a pang of hunger hit me and decided to get some of the baked and breaded chicken strips combo for a boost of energy. It wouldn’t be until the activity in the office slowed down enough that I could do some research into the “damage” the chicken strips basically caused. My boss, Rich, oversaw and basically said “Holy cow, dude! You’re seriously trying to slim and gain muscle?! I am impressed that you’re researching almost everything you eat!” He then just had an idea to pick up some bread, lean tuna and some deli style swiss cheese slices. From that he ended up just inviting me to make a sandwich with him and we talked seriously on diet. He had given me some great advice on what I need to do for nutritional sake. I just need to be more cautious with what I take in and watch out for trappings that could throw me over my projected caloric intake. Here’s the statistical information for those curious to my intake today.
Whey protein and L-Glutamine shake (16oz) – 400 calories, 36 grams of protein
5 baked and breaded chicken strips – 500 calories (BAD!)
Sierra Mist (8oz) -100 calories
Whole, stone ground wheat bread, tuna, and swiss cheese sandwich – 340 calories
Grand Total: 1,340 calories
