As you can see my husband is not skinny, but just right. (And handsome. Don't look too long mkay?)
He is exactly what he should weigh according to his life insurance company (170 lbs). Lucky him.
Although his family thinks he's too thin LOL ;-)
He's so active, he has always worked construction or physical labor. He walks all day around 80 acres. Plus he lifts weights on his lunch break.
So I HAVE to feed him a lot of calories!! Since we aren't rich, (shocker right!) I try to give him a lot of inexpensive healthy calorie and fat packed foods like coconut oil, olive oil, eggs, ect. And he never ever eats lunch out. If I don't make him a lunch he doesn't eat. He's stubborn ;)
Here's a typical day and just about what I gave him today.
Breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled cooked in 2 Tbsp organic coconut oil, 2 pieces if toast with 2 tbsp butter, and an orange sliced.
Total calories: 701 total fat: 62 total protein: 24 grams
Lunch: Turkey Sandwich w an egg on it. (3 slices turkey, mayo, cheese, mustard.) if I have spinach & avocado those go on too, today I didn't.
Pumpkin bread w butter
Protein powder (he drinks after work out)
Total Calories: 1,290 calories, 51 g fat, 102 G protein
Dinner: 1 1/2 c spaghetti w Italian sausage & marinara sauce
Veggies sautéed in olive oil
Fruit for snack (sometimes he eats ice cream or cereal at night too but I'm leaving that out).
Total: Calories 1066, 43 fat, 24 protein
Total for the day: 3057 calories, 156 fat grams, 151 protein grams
I should be giving him more protein (about 20 g more). I'm gonna work on that :)
Wasn't that an exciting post?
