Burgers for race weight – day 2

Day 2 was a good day! It was an early start (as you can see from my video intro below) but the workout was good (Tour of Sufferlandria day 2).



The burgers today were hand made by me using 85% lean beef from Costco. I just mix the ground beef with an egg (as a binding agent), some spices, and then form it into patties before throwing them onto the grill.

Toppings were simple, just pepperjack cheese, avocado, mayo and some butter on the bun. I added some homemade hand cut sweet potato fries, which I bake in the microwave, then wrap in foil with some coconut oil and salt and put it on the grill with the burgers. I finished off my meals with 2 klondike ice cream sandwiches and a Yasso salted caramel ice cream stick.

Daily totals:
3014 total calories
2200 from burgers and fries
430 from ice cream

The workout burned about 1400 calories but the accuracy of those numbers is not 100%, so I just use that as a very general guideline.

I planned on eating two burgers at lunch time but I was too full, so I kept one of them for dinner time. Post-workout fuel was a non alcoholic Moscow Mule using Fever Tree Ginger beer


this post is a part of the raceweight project, a “calories in, calories out” experiment to see if I can get to my racing weight eating mainly “bad” foods
