I know! When I was dieting like a fiend, I though 'oh well it will be so easy once I am off this diet because it is so restricted right now.' Instead with the excessive choice came laziness; I was no longer cooking mass amounts of chicken breast, weighing it out and packing it in containers the week before. Therefore, food just seemed so unavailable and so you just grab the most convenient thing which is usually calorie-dense and nutrient-poor.
I just got my meal plan for my off-season. I will post it here for you guys to see. It is tailored to me and my 5 workouts a week schedule, but I think it is decently balanced and you may pick up some good ideas from it. There is also a really good oatmeal pancake recipe.
