His and Hers Fuel

Pin It Print Friendly and PDF
If you are in a relationship with a member of the opposite sex, you've probably realized how different each gender's fuel needs are.

My relationship? At 6 foot 7, my fiance is simply a large human being. I'm just shy of 5'4 and built like a freaking bird.

When you weigh half as much as your significant other, you don't need as much "fuel" as they do. It's just a fact of life. So, when I'm planning meals for us, I can't just plan meals and then split them down the middle. That would be too much for me and too little for him.

Lately, our stockpile for the workday has taken this form. I bet you could have guesssed which one is "his" and which one is "hers!" ;-)

 "His" Day-Time Fuel:
-One Large Salad
-One Chicken Breast (smashed into the container with his salad)
-One Meal Shake (Cookies and Cream)
-One Probar "Core" Bar
-Two Detour Bars


"Her" Daytime Fuel:
-One Salad
-One Sweet Potato (you can see it in the container, it's a divided container)
-One Probar "Core" Bar (or, on other days, I replace this with a meal shake)

QUESTIONS:
  • Does anyone else have to deal with this?! Tell me I am not alone!
  • Have any of you tried Probar's Core series? It's DELICIOUS!

GRATEFULNESS:
Dear Pro Bar,
Thank you for being so utterly delicious and nutritious at the same time. You make me so satisfied, and my fiance even asked for more of you! Job well done.
Love, Carly

  1. Ugh I am still trying to figure out how to balance this. I'll make us a dinner that in MY mind will last for like..2-3 meals.......and he will devour it and then be hungry two hours later. Insane.

  2. I've been married for 11 months and I am still trying to figure out the correct portions for the both of us. My husband isn't twice my size, but he is by far in need of more food than I am and he has a crazy fast metabolism. it isn't unusual for him to throw a "you don't feed me enough fit!" haha :p
