Over the weekend my family and I went to some local Fall Festival with the kids and my wife packed some snacks and actually a lunch for everyone (I had no idea). I completely underestimated how long the day would run as we went to a local park after the Fall Festival and we arrived about lunch time. With Body Beast and Body Building in general, you almost have to make a conscious effort to eat, even when you are not hungry. You have to feed the machine! As we were getting the food out, I discovered that she packed my 1/3 box of wheat pasta and found a bag of almonds. My wife is awesome in that she remembered to bring what I needed even though I completely forgot. So I sat there eating my 1/3 box of wheat pasta and 1/4 cup of almonds right there on the park bench. Even on the weekends you need to be a food carrier!
So every day I bring a lot of food to work for snacks, lunch, and sometimes dinner. The Book of Beast talks about being “Food Carriers,” but before we can be “Food Carriers” we must be “Food Preparers” so that is why I put this video together. It shows how little time it takes to prepare my lunches, snacks, and dinners. I’m tired of hearing excuses like “I can’t cook!” or “I don’t have time!” or whatever. If you can boil water and push a few buttons then you can eat what I am eating.
In my 4th week of Body Beast I found my self losing 2 lbs eating close to 4000 calories per day, so I decided to add a few calories to my morning Shakeology. Basically I just follow the Chocolate Banana Nutter recipe but just add 1/2 cup of old fashioned oatmeal to it and grind it up first. I also eat two English muffins with almond butter and flax seed with this shake.
1/2 cup of oatmeal (grind)
1 scoop of Shakeology
1 Tablespoon of peanut butter
10 ounces of water
10 ounces of ice
