I posted this pic a few weeks ago and have since had several inquiries about my food and supplement routine.  So here it is in a nutshell.

I eat clean 95% of the time
I don't eat gluten
I eat very very little dairy (only if it's in a salad or sprinkled on something)
I do eat corn chips (hello, I live in TX)
I eat out about 1x a week
I don't do "cheat meals" but do "treats" every now and then (not everytime they are in front of me!!)
I don't eat massive amounts of veggies (laziness mainly) but do take a green drink supplement

I use to follow strict Zone - which was awesome for me! Helped me with portion control and regulate my insulin - cut down on cravings and helped break the "binge" cycle.
I transitioned into no gluten - no dairy over the past 7 years.  I still know my Zone blocks but don't weigh and measure. Over the years, I've found that my body works best on very little carbs, moderate protein, and lots and lots of fat.
Everyone is different, the Zone helped me "play" with macronutrient combo's to determine what I need.  I typically eat 12-16 blocks of protein (7g per block), 6-10 blocks of carbs (9g per block), and 25-35 blocks of fat (1.5g per block). 

I take supplements regularly!  We have a lot of FIT people in our community - but when I look at those who adamently take supplements ie: fish oil, branch chain amino acids, post workout shakes - you can hands down see a difference in his/her overall "glow", athletic performance,  and body composition.

I swear by....
