Meat and Nuts Breakfast – Sample Meal #1 With Calorie/Macro Calculations

Hey Live Leaners,

You asked for it’¦so…

It’s now time to apply what we learned in the last 3 videos (video #1: How To Calculate Your Calorie Needs… video #2 How To Calculate Your Macronutrient Needs… video #3 How To Distribute Your Macronutrients Throughout The Day) to an actual meal. We’re going to use the same calculations from the previous video. If you missed that video, click here to watch it. If you haven’t gone through and calculated your numbers yet…click on video #1-3 above and get your calculations. It’s quick and simple. Then once, you have those numbers…customize the quantities of this meal to match your needs.

The calculations from our previous example included a daily goal of 2,000 calories. And remember, our workout was planned at lunch. So based on this, our meal #1 macronutrient goals were 40g of protein (20% of total daily protein), 0g of carbs, and 35g of fat (40% of total daily fat).

In this blog post, I’m going to take you through a sample meal #1 option (the Meat and Nuts Breakfast) that I highly recommend you all follow. This meal resembles the meat and nut breakfast popularized by Charles Poliquin. If you ask your personal trainer who Charles Poliquin is, and they say they don’t know’¦fire your trainer! Charles Poliquin is the godfather of the personal training industry.

So why meat and nuts for breakfast?

It’s Charles Poliquin’s number 1 dietary tip for optimal leanness, energy, and mental focus.

There have been multiple studies on executives, kids, and professional athletes, that shows a high protein breakfast is critical for sustained energy and increased productivity throughout the day and it’s also responsible for  positively setting up your neurotransmitter production and stabilizing your blood sugar levels for extended periods of time.

For example, the meat allows for a slow and steady rise in blood sugar while the healthy fats in the nuts allows your blood sugar to remain stable for a long time.

Balancing your blood sugar is key to reducing cravings and keeping you feeling satiated. The opposite occurs when you eat a high carb breakfast like cereal or toast. Your blood sugar is all over the place, leading to cravings and hunger.

How Do I Know How Much Food To Cook To Hit My Macronutrient & Calorie Requirements?

You just need to keep tweaking the quantities until the total protein, carbs, and fat equals your goal for that meal (as seen in the orange “Meal Target” row).

Once you figure out the quantities…it’s time to cook. It’s that simple.

Conclusion

Remember…these food quantities are calculated based off of a 2,000 calorie meal plan (40% protein, 20% carbs, 40% fat). Customize your quantities based on your specific requirements.

You should also rotate your food selections. For example don’t just eat this exact meat and nuts breakfast every day. 

For example, for tomorrow’s meat and nuts breakfast, have ground turkey with pecans. Then fish and almonds, etc.
