Tony's Typical Daily Meals


One of the questions I get asked most often is "what do you usually eat?"  Here is my typical daily meal, and yes, I do eat this most days with slight variances or an occasional cheat meal.

Breakfast- 1 cup Old fasioned oatmeal ( add splenda to the oatmeal ) and 1¼ cups egg whites made like an omelet in a non-stick pan.

snack- 1 peice of fruit or broccoli/carrots with 1 serving of non fat dressing

lunch- Whole wheat turkey/ham/roast beef sandwhich with broccoli/asparagus/green beans/plain salad.

snack- celery with 1 tlbs peanut butter.

dinner- 1-1.5 servings whole wheat pasta with light marinara or brown rice with 6-8oz boneless skinless chicken breast that has been grilled on my George Foreman grill.

10 minutes before bed- 1¼ cups egg whites cooked in a non-stick pan or 2 servings of non/1% fat cottage cheese.

    Add some hazelnut creamer for my morning coffee,a dose of olive oil on the pasta, about 4 bananas and maybe a few Ritz crackers and I'm there! (except for the chocolate chip cookies I had today, oops).

  3. what are your thoughts on the different types of bread. i'm not a fan of the brown bread but i eat muti-grain am i still getting the same nutrients?

    1. Yes, I believe multigrain bread is a more complex carb so it digests slower and typically has more fiber. Also, I believe multigrain brain offers more micro nutrients due to the grains and seeds in the bread. So yes it is a great choice!

    1. Yes, Tony usually eats the same thing each day. He varies it a little, like changing his fruits and vegetables or maybe eating a piece of steak instead of chicken, but mostly he keeps to the same meals.

      It makes it easy to run to the store and buy the same things and he pre-cooks several pieces of chicken at the same time and then his chicken is all cooked for 2 days then.

    2. Oh wow! Okey so i like to make myself and omelet with: ham,green peppers, wiener dogs, and with mozzarella cheese on top what should i use olive oil or just plain oil.

    3. I would use something like pam or another cooking spray that is low calorie. you can also save yourself some calories by switching to low/non fat mozzarella cheese.

    1. mustard or sugar free ketchup, which is surprisingly good. Also salsa - I use a lot of salsa on everything like chicken, salads (instead of dressing), sandwiches or tortillas. I rarely eat cheese, altho I will occasionally use it (1 slice) on an omelet.

    2. One more thing - I like fresh spinach on my sandwiches. I buy the fresh spinach in a bag, wash it and pile it on the sandwich. That's one of my favorite things.

    1. Celery is one of those veggies with low calories, so you can usually eat a lot of that.

      I don't know about McDonalds oatmeal. I make my own oatmeal at home. Try going to the McDonalds website and look up their nutritional values. Of course, you'd want to keep from putting a bunch of sugar on it. You can add raisins, that's usually pretty good.

  9. Hey Tony,

    Good Post. I had a question though. Can you also jot down the quantity of Fats, Carbs and Protein that you have in your every meal each day? I think that will be really helpful and easier to follow.
