Fouad Abiad’s Lunch
For Fouad’s lunch, he’s making chicken and potatoes.
For the potatoes, he cooks them in an air fryer. By using the air fryer, you can cook a ton of potatoes using just 1 tablespoon of olive oil and it ends up being a tasty carb source.
As Fouad says, it’s important you know your body. It’s important to understand what your body likes to use for energy and what digests well.
Once you have the potatoes in the air fryer, all you have to do is set the timer and it’ll handle the rest of the work itself.
While it’s cooking, you can prepare your chicken. Fouad’s favorite approach is cubing his chicken and pan frying it. Instead of cutting the chicken on a cutting board, he uses a fork and scissors trick he learned from Jay Cutler.
Before putting the chicken in his frying pan, he sprays it with PAM spray to avoid it from sticking. After all the chicken is in the pan, he adds a little bit of salt and pepper prior to covering it. Covering it is important because if you don’t, the juices will evaporate and it won’t cook evenly.
By covering it, the steam helps it cook and keeps the chicken from sticking. Once it’s cooked fairly well, you’ll want to take the cover off and let the water from the chicken evaporate. This will also help brown the chicken a bit.
Fouad’s biggest piece of advice is to make your food taste good. Otherwise, you’ll get sick of your diet and you’ll fail.
Another tip he has for viewers is to get a scale. When in a fat loss phase it will help you monitor your intake. And in growing phases, it’ll help you ensure you’re consuming enough food.
Fouad measures out 6 ounces of chicken and a pound of potatoes. To smash it all down he covers it in ketchup and barbeque sauce.
