I’ll have Fish & a Rice Cake………………….

Standard

>At 8 o’clock I’ll have fish & a rice cake…………

>At 10 o’clock I’ll have fish……

>At 12 o’clock I’ll have fish…………… & a rice cake

>At 2’clock I’ll have fish………

>At 4 o’clock before train I’ll have fish & a rice cake…………

After I train I’ll have my fish, then I’ll have some more fish with a rice cake……………..

>Then I’ll have some fish before I go to bed…………….

No, this is NOT my daily routine!

……. It’s an excerpt from an old documentary on aspiring bodybuilder Danny Andrews that has since become a bit of an internet sensation!

The above run down was Danny’s answer when asked about his nutrition/diet at the time…………

Fish……….

& a rice cake.

Or fish………

Or a rice cake.

Bit much?

Ha, definitely!!………..

Anyway, I’m using this somewhat extreme example to highlight how there can be a huge misconception that eating ‘healthy’ or ‘clean’ has to be boring or monotonous…..this simply doesn’t have to be the case!

I want to tell you today that you categorically do not have to live on the same meals on repeat day in, day out!

You can have variety, and you can mix it up!

Leaving on the SAME meals, MULTIPLE times a day is sure-fire recipe to boredom, driving yourself insane and is totally & completely unrealistic………

Get creative: there is NO need to simply live on chicken and broccoli (or fish & a rice cake) 4 times a day!

My advice would be to learn how to cook in different styles & try new things. Try to embrace change in the kitchen, get social and involve your friends/partner/husband/wife and kids in the creative process.

If you are stuck for ideas or ways to increase your protein content in your diet, give me a shout, I’ll fire you some ideas to keeps things fresh.

That’s all for today, until the next time,

Tristan ‘& a rice cake’ Buttle.

P.S – here’s the link to the original excerpt, so you can see Danny giving us his rundown:
