Training Days Off the Road
Coffee, cream and two artificial sweetener
Glass of orange juice
Toast with butter
Heinz British beans or canned stewed tomatoes
Two eggs, fried
Always a big glass of water twenty minutes or more after he ate breakfast, no matter where he was at the time. And he always had a big glass of water about twenty minutes after every big meal. He did not drink a lot of water prior to going to sleep though.
Train at the gym
Eat within 45 minutes after training was done.
Lunch after training was something like:
If he was at home in either the UK or Tampa:
Two chicken breasts, cooked over the flame in cast iron pan, or baked, covered in the oven, but not overcooked.
Spinach salad with mushrooms or a salad of some kind and a bit of dressing, just to give the salad a little bit more flavor.
Some sort of carb, like a pasta, baked potato or rice, just as a side. The main part of this lunch was protein to help my muscles after training. Davey didn't really need the carbs/energy so much after the workout.
Sushi, if he was in Calgary
Some kind of soup, like cream of mushroom or French Onion, with bread.
6:00 PM Tea or dinner
8-10 oz T-bone or rib-eye steak, med rare with cooked mushrooms
Broccoli or green veg, steamed or boiled with salt and olive oil and a dash of red pepper flakes
Mashed or baked potato, a bit of sour cream or plain yogurt, salt and pepper
Training Days On the Road
On days when Davey was on the road, meals were a lot different because he only had himself to feed. It was more of a family affair when he ate at home, so his food was often more specific on the road, at hotels and restaurants.
On the road:
Coffee, 2 artificial sweetener and cream
Meal prior to training:
A full glass of orange juice or apple juice mixed into protein shake that he would make in a shaker container just before training. Then his usual protein drink was Metryx brand, usually chocolate, and the powder was low in sugar and fat. Davey would eat a banana along with this drink.
Meal within 30 minutes, if possible after training:
10 egg whites, a 6-8 oz rib eye steak, med rare, with seasoning like salt and pepper.
Coffee, cream and two artificial sweeteners.
