Hump Day Edition of Food Tracking
And here we are again, trying to get back to the ideal Zen Diet meal. Can I do it today? That is the question.
Note: The photo above is an “Afternoon Tea” meal I shared with my wife that is not quite Japanese, but is following the Zen Diet approach.
Tonight I have another fun gig, playing some R&B, Soul and Funk on the drums.
I guess I made sure I carbo-loaded yesterday and a little bit on the previous day.
Whatever diet I’m on, what I have noticed is that I really need to have some complete protein sources. The problem with the Raw Food Diet is that I don’t think I was getting enough protein. Sorry, Raw Foodists. But, in the world of athletics I don’t know of any Raw Foodists out there who thrive and perform at top level.
And so that was the point I was driving at… that in order to perform at one’s physical potential (and in my case, drumming for 4 hours and all the hard labor involved with drums) I have to eat more of a Paleo Diet or Zone Diet.
And in my case, I’ve adopted a Zen Diet that will provide as much of the nutrients needed to drum at my physical best.
