Hey low-fat people, what do you eat for meals and snacks?

Been fairly "low-carb" for a long, long time and I've decided to experiment with low-fat, high carb, moderate protein for a few weeks. I've got an huge endurance race in two weeks, I'm not in ketosis.. so I figure what the hell. My last two days have looked something like this:

  • Berries and honey with fat-free greek yogurt (fage).
  • Lean protein with sweet potato hash/mash and veggies.
  • Paleo "friendly" pancakes with maple syrup and more berries.

I'm not used to limiting fat, so I need some help. I'm only limiting it because I want to see carbs at every meal and don't feel like gaining weight before this race :) SO what are you low-fat staples?

i agree. the honey is raw and local, definitely not the crap they sell in stores. i do love sweet potatoes, looks like i'll be seeing those at every meal. and for the record those pancakes were pumpkin pancakes.

Go with the tubers and starchy veg instead. Sweet potatoes, potatoes, beets, pumpkin, winter squash, plantains etc.

High sugar (honey/maple syrup) definitely isn't the way to go IMO.

I actually just ran a 15k endurance obstacle race this past weekend. The two days prior to the run I had some sweet potaotes with my meals for extra carbs ( veggies and some meat). The day of I had about 5 eggs with an avacado, and a bananna. About hour prior to the race I had a bottle of Zico water and another one right after. I had enough energy to finish strong. Good luck

You could probably just eat any food you would normally eat (like for lunch or dinner), and just keep it low fat. You don't have to limit yourself to "breakfast foods."

Why not a plain chicken breast with steamed veggies? I would imagine any lean protein and veggies or fruit without added fat would be fine. Steaming veg or eating them raw is probably the easiest way to avoid adding fat. Don't know what your standards are for food quality, but probably canned tuna would be a good way to go. Fresh fish filets can be very lean, too.

Your lean protein with sweet potato hash sounds ideal.
