Meal Plan Sample

Breakfast

Breakfast must NEVER be SKIPPED. This meal should have an extra emphasis on complex carbohydrates to provide energy for the day’s activities following a 7-10 hour fasting sleep. If eating breakfast is not part of your routine, try to gradually increase the amount of food eaten until a full breakfast becomes habit. Sometimes a meal replacement shake (190 calories) can stimulate the metabolism and make you hungry enough to eat a “late” breakfast.

Whole-wheat cold cereal + milk (1% or skim) + toast + peanut butter + juice
Oatmeal + milk + fruit + yogurt
Eggs (2 yolk maximum) + whole-wheat toast + juice + yogurt
Pancakes + syrup + lean breakfast meat + juice
Muffins + yogurt + juice + fruit + milk
Bagels + low-fat cheese or lean meat or eggs + fruit + milk + juice
Blender meals (milk, yogurt, fruit, juice, skim milk powder)

Lunch

2 lean meat sandwiches on whole-wheat + veggies + yogurt + low-fat cookies
2 slices of cheese/vegetable thick-crust pizza + juice + fruit
Whole-wheat lean meat sub + pretzels + milk + fruit
Chicken breast + rice + vegetables + low-fat ice cream
Kraft dinner (without butter) + vegetables + lean meat + juice

Dinner

You should plan and arrange dinner around the requirements of training and competition (i.e. a small pre-game meal OR a late post-exercise dinner). Vegetables and Carbohydrate side dishes should have a greater priority than in traditional meals.

Whole-wheat pasta + lean meat + vegetables + ice-milk or sherbert
Steak + baked potato + corn + fruit + yogurt
Hamburger + juice + salad + potato
Fish + rice + vegetables + low-fat ice cream
Pork tenderloin + potatoes + vegetable + low-fat pudding
Chicken breast + whole-grain rice + soup + low-fat cookies
Chili + whole-wheat toast + milk + fruit salad
