Time for some more Leangains certified meals from myself, clients and Leangains fans from all around the globe. Click the hyperlinked names after the headings if you want to see the person behind the meals.
This is a meal I’ve been eating a lot lately. I get the roast beef fresh from the deli since that pre-packaged stuff usually makes me bloated as hell (all pre-packaged and conserved meats are loaded with sodium). Plus fresh roast beef is juicier and tastes a lot better.
- 500 g roast beef
- 500 g potatoes fried with 200-300 mushrooms and half an onion.
I roll the roast beef slices up like wraps with the potato mix stuffed in between. Might dip it in some ajvar but I really enjoy the taste au naturale as well.
After that I usually go for one of my berry bowls.
I might also go for some protein pudding.
60-90 g chocolate flavored milk protein isolate mixed with 1.5 dl water for each 30 g/1 dl powder. I enjoy this with some full-fat whipping cream. Might put this in the fridge for an hour – makes a decent substitute for ice cream.
Robert likes oatmeal and pizza post-workout.
These are made from:
- 62 g tortilla bread
- 20 g tomato pure
- 65 g cheese (5% fat)
- 50 g ham
- 30 g shrimps
- 20 g mushrooms
- 40 g tomato
- Fresh basil and oregano
Comes out to about 392 kcal, 44 g protein, 32 g carbs and 9 g fat per pizza. Pretty damn good macros for a pizza.
Post-workout meals and a rest day meal

Cheesecake mastery level 2
Gary celebrated the end of his cut with one hell of a cheesecake. This made me painfully aware that I need to sharpen my own cheesecake mastery skills to keep rivals like Gary at bay. I haven’t had cheesecake for a good while now, unfortunately.
God damn, that looks so good.
Rest day meal
This is what Marjan eats just before hitting the sack.
- 400 g beef with fried mushrooms
- 250 g cottage cheese
- 100-150 g blackberries
Post-workout and a rest day meal
- 400 g cereal
- 3 scoops whey protein mixed in blender
Cheeseburger mastery level 4
Josh is well known for his cheeseburger mastery and was kind enough to share some of his secrets with us.
“Start your session by sitting in an upright position and place both hand on the table. This will prepare your body and mind for the task at hand” says Josh.
Ok, that’s all for today. If you have you have a favorite meal you like to eat on your Leangains plan, you can send them over and I might include them in future food posts. Just make sure they follow the general guidelines for rest and training day meals, and ideally include some measurements the way I’ve done here. I’d appreciate your contribution.
