For some lunchtime guidance beyond what dietitians eat, here’s what six fitness professionals — from spin instructors to strength coaches — eat for their midday meals. Spoiler alert: They really like chicken and veggies. “I’ll eat a salad with chicken or salmon and whatever veggies I have in my fridge. Packing nutritious, non-yawnsville lunches for work is a challenge for most of us, so just imagine how tough it is for fitness instructors.

They’re the poster children for good health, which means. What 7 fitness experts eat for lunch Weekday lunch can be a tricky meal. Get some inspiration from taking a look inside the brown bags of fitness professionals.

See below for some inspiration, and be happy knowing that even fitness pros like to splurge once in awhile. “Savory quinoa bowl with arugula, lentils (or black beans, depending on what’s in my pantry), sweet potato, avocado and tahini sauce. Blueberries are an antioxidant-rich powerhouse that add sweetness and flavor. Spinach is a great source of magnesium, an important calming mineral known for preventing anxiety, moodiness and irritability. Spinach is also a source of B vitamins, which help regulate mood.

While a lunch-hour workout is great, experts say don’t forsake some face time with food in order to fit one in: “You body needs to be refueled and it’s essential you do eat, so don’t skip lunch in. Consuming a lunch that’s between 400 to 550 calories and has a protein content of almost 50 grams will help you muscle through the rest of the day. Check out these five easy-to-prepare lunches, which will also get you through the work week.

Lunch 1: Balsamic Grilled Chicken Sandwich. Bodybuilding is centered around building your body’s muscles through weightlifting and nutrition.

Even Fitness Pros Have Some Bad Habits Read More. Lunch is a tricky one. Sure, you can spend weekends basting your bird until it’s golden brown, but by mid-week you find yourself face to face with another morose meal deal.

  • I like how each meal is not a lot of calories all at once. For a muscular woman who is not body building, but trying to gain some healthy weight towards the hips and ass, this is helpful. This is a realistic eating schedule for someone like me. Thanks.

  • god damn i can’t hipster body builders like this lame ass fruit cakejoke. Holy shit every copied rich piana with the tattoos. Why do all these nerdy good square kids want to look bad soo much? i don’t get it

  • Just made your rice cakes! Now that I’ve got a whole tray full of this, how long does it last in the fridge? Or should I be eating some every day….. ����

  • was that a taco? or a burrito hybrid thing? and how about some cheese and black olives and tomatoes? would that be okay for a body builder? that whole pack of seasoning has tons of sodium

  • Ewwww sugar free syrup and 0 calories ”butter”? The real question is why not use the real things and substitute for other fats to compensate? I’d rather real maple syrup pure tapped from a tree and real butter churned from a cow. NATURAL!!!

  • I wouldn’t eat this unless I was dirty bulking, I use ground turkey or lean ground beef in my eggs or steak in my eggs, sandwich meats and pre packaged processed oats? No thanks.

  • Please tell me why I watch these videos ��. I’m not even into bodybuilding or anything but seeing all the food they eat is interesting. My stomach could never ��

  • The only reason i kept watching is because i saw baking soda in the ingredients and needed to find out

    I found out.. this guy is an idiot, use baking powder for pancakes next time not soda.. Baking soda makes the pancakes a little more bitter

  • Hey M&S can you start your videos with a short intro for lesser known athletes like Pham? Didn’t know what he did but it would’ve been cool if he said he was a functional trainer.

  • Can I prepare it in the evening and store it in the fridge and take it as my preworkout meal the next morning? I wonder if the protein could be damaged when cooking or storing in the fridge

  • You can chug the batter if you’re really stuck for time. Egg doesn’t absorb as readily when raw but oatflakes are already rolled and baked so they are ‘cooked’.

  • First meal is at 9:30 tho? By his second meal a lot of bodybuilders are already on 3. No issues with catabolic state going so long between meals?

  • No offense but this guy looks like he has been going to the gym for a year. Not competition material yet. Maybe in another 2 or 3 years

  • Ok but in all honesty you guys must really be struggeling for creative content if youre making videos about this clown making and eating tacos. Come on guysssss

  • You know what’s weird, listening to him talk? When he’s talking, a lot of his sentences are questions? so, I’m watching, and there’s so many question? You know?

  • As an Asian, I’m still trying to wrap my head around this sweet rice thing. (And would Japanese rice give you indigestion? That happens with sushi rice.) Sometimes, I wondered if a cyclist’s rice cake was anything like the rice cakes you buy in supermarkets, which is about as filling as eating foamboard. A savory rice cake sounds good like a fusion musubi! We eat musubi’s on rides here in Hong Kong! Teriyaki beef/chicken, salmon or tuna, take your pick!

  • As an Asian I cannot bear to watch you make that rice cake. I cannot imagine the taste of it, nor do I want to. >_< Please look up onigiri or lemper and make yourself something actually tasty to go with your bike ride.

  • Crazy how much different the nutrition is for different endurance racers like for cycling they tend for the sugary fast acting foods whereas racers like f1 drivers tend to not eat much sugar whatsoever and having to also take alot of fluid on board before a race as they lose like 3kg a race where with cyclists they constantly aee drinking, i mean racing drivers drink during the race too but its generally warm water and only used to keep the mouth from going dry so its very interesting to see both sides of things and how much sports can differ even when they are both endurance!

  • To each their own but come on now, ground beef? The man should buy some skirt or flap meat, chop that boy up and use that for a real Mexican burrito or tacos. Can’t forgot the green sauce onion and cilantro to accompany the dish.

  • bro you are clueless about cooking…and like Damn you can afford and use better quality ingredients. ALDI has some great foods for cheap.

  • Hello. Before I start, I want to thank you in advance for reading this comment. I know that time is limited for all people, and that reading a long comment that like this one is a sacrifice that should not be taken lightly.

    On the topic of time, each person has a limited time on this planet. However, no one really talks about the life after death. When God created heaven and earth, he never intended for death to be a part of the human experience, but when Adam and Eve ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, everything changed. Sin had just entered the beautiful world that God had made, and God, being perfectly just, punished Adam and Eve, along with all of their descendants, by banishing them out the garden, denying them the opportunity to eat from the tree of life, and condemning them to die because of the consequence of their sin. The fate of Adam and Eve is the same for all people on this planet, because we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. However, this is not the end of the story.

    Out of God’s perfect love for us, he sent his one any only son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for the remission of sin. Jesus, through his death and resurrection, has defeated sin and death, and has provided a way of salvation from the second spiritual death, the lake of fire and sulfur. All you have to do is:

    1. Confess your sin to God and repent, and

    2. Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe that God raised him from the dead.

    These two things are true, because these actions are also confirmed by what Paul said in Romans 10:

    (1) Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God on behalf of my fellow Israelites is for their salvation.

    (2) For I can testify that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not in line with the truth.

    (3) For ignoring the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking instead to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.

    (4) For Christ is the end of the law, with the result that there is righteousness for everyone who believes.

    (5) For Moses writes about the righteousness that is by the law: “The one who does these things will live by them.”

    (6) But the righteousness that is by faith says: “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down)

    (7) or “Who will descend into the abyss?” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).

    (8) But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we preach),

    (9) because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

    (10) For with the heart one believes and thus has righteousness and with the mouth one confesses and thus has righteousness and with the mouth one confesses and thus have salvation.

    (11) For the scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”

    (12) For there is no distinction between the Jew and the Greek, for the same Lord is Lord of all, who richly blesses all who call on him.

    (13) For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

    (Romans 10: 1-13 (New English Translation))

    To summarize, salvation through Christ Jesus is something that is done by faith and accessible by all people. If you are still reading, I heavily persuade that you would consider finding salvation in Christ and getting right with God. All it really takes is the faith and willingness to pray to God about it. I know how important of a decision salvation is, so here’s some places on YouTube that I have personally used:

    Again, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this massive comment. My hope is that I post this comment whenever I watch something on YouTube, so that many people get a chance to hear the gospel. I hope you have a wonderful day. God bless!

  • I normally eat just some heavy food like nachos during the tour de France. It’s also important to vary the food up because the race can get pretty boring.
    Makes it easier to sit in front of the TV.

  • Where are all the seringues with “special boosts” that you insert between you toes!? =O X-D

    More serious question. With all this eating do riders every stop for anything more than a quick wee?

  • You actually need to be careful with cooked rice and having wet rice cakes sitting in a warm jersey pocket for a few hours on a hot day could cause a serious case of food poisoning. I’d imagine Pro teams keep their wet rice cakes chilled in team cars until required for the feed zone, but having it warm in your pocket for 4hrs before eating it is potentiality dangerous.

  • Nice. I squeeze half a lemon & sprinkle pepper on my eggs. Sometimes add a lil bit of racha or tapatio for a lil kick. Def better sub for salt that works for me

  • I’m at the gym by 5am and then at work for 9 hours after. Ain’t nobody got time for this. Put some Ezekiel bread in the toaster, throw some egg whites on and go. Do your big eats at work.

  • I find it strange that the riders adding protein to their diet is a shocker lol. Adding chained amino acids would help more with the recovery

  • currently i have 6 eggs scrambled with almond milk every morning but it’s becoming a bitch to get down and i could use more carbs early on so ima try this.. a good middle ground

  • Can you freeze the rice cakes for a few weeks? i.e., make one batch and take a few at a time as needed? How long would they last in the fridge or freezer? any experience with that? I made some and added pistachios, dried cranberries and some dark chocolate chips. delicious and a nice break from regular bars

  • Cheers for this, been searching for “is pasta a protein or carbohydrate?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Dansaac Unflappable Dominance (do a google search )? It is a good one of a kind guide for discovering how to find the best food to balance your hormones and blast away your fat spots minus the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my buddy got cool results with it.

  • thi s guy cant cook for shit… and most canadians pronounce it “pawsta” not “paahsta”. where did u get this guy… show more fouad hes the best. this guy a clown

  • Eggs and oatmeal eggs and oatmeal eggs and oatmeal Eggs and oatmeal eggs and oatmeal eggs and oatmeal Eggs and oatmeal eggs and oatmeal eggs and oatmeal

  • I bet all the niggas roasting him in the comments are the ones who STILL believe their favorite is ALL Natty nigga! Lmao! Fooled yo asses!!! Lmao!

  • Growing up I didn’t know and even now I always forget how good of a source of protein shrimp is.
    People around me think about red meat, chicken, and salmon so frequently, shrimp is always forgotten. Good way to get down a lot of protein easier

  • fizzy drinks like soda are often very acidic. Your body’s reaction to the acid is to salivate which more quickly remedies the feeling of thirst and dry mouth than just plain water can.

  • These cooking-type videos are genuinely better than professionals do. “I’m not measuring this, just winging it.” “If you have another tin which you can use to press down, great; I don’t.” All the professional chef-type videos they have so much equipment all ready at their disposal. They have a spoon covered in honey then stick it straight in a brand new pack of flour, ruining loads of flour they don’t care as they aren’t paying for it! These are genuine do-it-yourself videos described in a way that real people can actually do! Thank you!

  • I throw blueberries in when they’re cooking to make them fancier. They’re pretty much identical to any good pancakes you’d get in a restaurant, just not as spongy and empty-filling.

  • Grate to see these athletes putting in off season work. Considering NFL draft is coming next weeks wonder what round this fellow will go

  • With gels i originally thought you mean moisture gel bc the cyclist are cycling all day under the sun. And i was so confused when you mention many kinds of flavoured gels, until there’s a pic of cyclist sucking the gel lol

  • after watching multiple “full day of eating ” type videos, I feel like im the only one not eating a preworkout meal. im still burping up the lunch meal and working out at 6pm. must be in the minority of those that prefer to have a semi empty stomach for workouts.

  • If you get stuck, you can just chug the batter (I have: fuck, look at the time!) but uncooked eggs don’t absorb as efficiently as cooked,.

  • Thanks… for revealing your breakfast is to be the biggest… and oatmeal makes my stomach hurt… so I use pumpkin seeds 56g for the carbs.. that’s 40g of carbs the seeds produce… and a banana would be great in that oatmeal

  • First meal is at 9:30 tho? By his second meal a lot of bodybuilders are already on 3. No issues with catabolic state going so long between meals?

  • I go these sites hoping one day I will see someone make something different…but no. Always the same shit. Also when i watch these videos it also seems as if these guys done work for a living. What about a protein breakfast when you only have 5 minutes to make something.

  • THIS CH MUST BUY SUBS. BULLSHIT U GOT ALMOST 500K. WHEN RXMUSCLE THE BEST BODYBUILDING SITE HAS 200 OR LESS. JAY CUTLER DOESNT EVEN HAVE 300K

  • I’m waiting for the competitor who’s like “I eat two peanut butter, jelly, and banana sandwiches with cinnamon and a bowl of Golden Grahams” while watching cartoons (the secret ingredient)for breakfast.

    Just to break from the typical oatmeal and eggs that almost everyone does.
