What a Dietitian Eats in a Day

This Dietitian Shows The 6 Meals She Eats in a Day to Stay Fit

When it comes to eating healthy, there's no one-size-fits-all approach. Some people prefer to eat three square meals a day while others eat five or six smaller meals throughout the day. For dietitian Leanne Ward (@the_fitness_dietitian on Instagram), she prefers to eat three moderate meals and two or three snacks a day — and based on how great she looks in a bikini, her food choices are helping her stay lean and healthy.

Leanne documented a day of what she normally eats on her Instagram page. On this day, she started with Greek yogurt with cereal, berries, nuts, and seeds. For her second meal (more like a snack), she had a hard-boiled egg, banana, and a coffee. For her third meal, she ate a high-fiber wrap with canned tuna, cheese, grated carrot, lettuce, and tomato, and had herbal tea with no sugar. For her fourth meal (more like a second snack), she had more Greek yogurt with homemade granola. Her fifth meal was teriyaki salmon with greens and brown rice, plus herbal tea. For her sixth and final meal (more like dessert), Leanne had homemade peanut butter protein balls.

Leanne also recommends people drink plenty of water throughout the day, and fruit-infused water is a tasty way to stay hydrated. She recommends a BPA-free fruit infusion bottle to make sure you're getting enough H2O.

"I hope this gives you guys a rough idea of the foods I eat to stay healthy all year round," Leanne wrote in her caption. "I don't count calories or deprive myself." She added that she will indulge in a special treat every now and then, such as cake at work or alcohol, fried food, and sweets. "If you make the basis of your diet whole foods then there's always room for occasional treats, too," she wrote.

Leanne's diet is chock-full of fruits and veggies, plus lean protein, healthy fats, nuts, and antioxidant-rich tea. Although you don't need to copy her meals exactly, it's great inspo for eating healthy, wholesome meals throughout the day and fueling your body with the right foods.
