What I Eat

Written by: Brad Pilon

I’ve been asked to do a “day in the life of Brad” and track all of my eating, so I recorded 2 days of regular eating, then the two days surrounding a fast for you.

I’ll warn you right now that my diet is not overly exciting. In fact, I generally follow my own advice…

I fast twice per week, and eat around 100 grams of protein per day like in How Much Protein. I’m not trying to diet so my rough maintenance calorie intake is my height in centimeters multiplied by 15. I eat a lot of fruit, specifically berries (Good Belly, Bad Belly) and my workouts are Progressions three times per week (Progressions)…

Alright, let’s begin with Friday:

NOTES:

*Tuesday would look a lot like Friday…

*My non-fasting days are roughly 2,700 Calories, my fasting days would combine to be roughly 2,700, usually a little bit more.

*If I were trying to lose weight, I’d reduce my calorie intake to somewhere between 12-14 x my height in centimeters, mostly by cutting the juice out of my shakes.
