RANSLEY CARPIO, WELLECO, NEW YORK CITY
WELLECO’S RANSLEY CARPIO LIVES IN THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS. HERE HE SHARES HIS DAY IN FOOD WITH DR. SIMONE LAUBSCHER PHD.
On waking: Filtered water and double shot almond milk macchiato. Will also typically workout upon waking.
Dr. Simone Laubsher PhD. (DL): Great!
Breakfast: 1 scoop NOURISHING PROTEIN, 2 teaspoons THE SUPER ELIXIR, banana, almond butter, blueberries, and filtered water. If I have a business meeting breakfast, I’ll have two scrambled eggs, half an avocado and smoked salmon.
DL: This looks well balanced, but maybe mix up your berries to vary antioxidant levels if you have a busy day planned. Lunch could run late if you add almond milk here too (250ml) instead of water. It will sustain you and support your blood sugar levels.
Mid-morning snack: If at all, a pressed juice of kale, spinach, apple, ginger, cucumber, celery, parsley, lemon and romaine.
DL: Fresh is always best! Drink within 30 minutes of juicing to avoid the nasty effects of oxidation (like when you slice an apple and it goes brown).
Lunch: A piece of lean protein, usually salmon or chicken, with greens.
DL: Great. Take care, especially as a male, that your chicken is organic to avoid any added female hormones which can give you dreaded man boobs!
Afternoon snack: Organic plant protein bar or, if my workout is in the afternoon, I will have vanilla yogurt with a handful of granola, almonds, cashews and blueberries.
I will also either have another coffee or THE SUPER ELIXIR.
DL: Always leave coffee an hour either side of food and THE SUPER ELIXIR so you don't block key nutrients from being absorbed into the body. Again, ensure your yogurt is organic to avoid added female hormones.
Post-workout snack: 1-2 scoops of NOURISHING PROTEIN with coconut water.

Dinner: I usually order in or dine out. Usually a lean protein and greens with a rice or pasta, sushi or sashimi. A couple of times a week, I will have a burger or something similar. 3-4 times a week I will have 2-4 alcoholic drinks either before, during, and/or after dinner.
DL: Be cautious about what clean organic protein you choose here. Always select fish if you are unsure, and to avoid mercury, drink an extra THE SUPER ELIXIR at that meal to prevent heavy metal overload.
Other notes: Water intake is typically 4-5 16oz water bottles each day. I limit my red meat intake to once a week. I typically sleep 6-7hrs, initiated by WelleCo Sleep Welle Fortifying Tea. A couple of nights a week, I will only sleep 3-4 hours.
DL: At least once a week, put some hours in your sleep bank so you make up for hours lost during the week. We need to sleep to detox, and if you skip on needed sleep, you need to make up for it to keep your toxic load down. It helps prevent disease and ageing.
