What I Eat in a Day | Starting my Lean Bulk

What I Eat in a Day - Lean Bulk, Girly Gains, Carbs, Protein, Balanced diet, Meal plan, Meal prep
A quick but insightful post this week - I wanted to share with you exactly what my current day of eating looks like, as I begin my lean bulk. But not just to give meal ideas, mainly to show just how much good food you can eat in a day & still be healthy & still love the food you're eating! I'm currently building up to a calorie surplus, so all this food you see here, is only about 50 cals over my daily allowance! I want you all to feel comfortable around food & embrace eating carbs, snacking 4 times a day & not giving a toss what people think, because you know how to be healthy for your body & your goals!
A big thing that helped me with my relationship with food, was understanding my macros - what their purpose was in a day & how they could help fuel my workouts. To learn more on macros, check out my post 'Master Your Macros'. I then create a weekly meal plan & track my macros once a week, so I know I'm on track, without countig every single day. So note, this meal plan's portion sizes are tailored to me & works for me - you might need to increase or decrease your portion sizes depending on you!
