i think it is a good diet plan but one that is very restrictive and would be expensive to maintain in a family situation. I believe it would work great but time is an issue in preperation of meals ect. To buy these solid sources of protein such as lean meat and fish is quite expensive on top of the normal household shopping bills that my rents would buy for the rest of the family.

i think this diet and workout plan would work if you lived and breathed about the phosique of your body.

i would like to try and implement this in a 2 week trial to see if i can maintain but that is highly unlikely.

planning - yes get over it

expensive - not really, i earnt 21,000 (australian) dollars for the last financial year and eat exactly like this...i am now up to 10 - 11 meals a day

2 week trial - nothing will hapen in 2 weeks

Tips
- Solid protein sources include pork, turkey, red meat, kangaroo, fish, sardines, tuna, salmon, chicken and eggs (whites too)…obviously protein is also found in seeds but you want about 20g per meal for satiety and that is a lot of seeds

.. kangaroo? i did'nt think people ate kangaroo. can you find it in north america?

very insightfull post by the way

Is organic soy milk good to eat with cereal? What kind of milk should I be using to not slow down digestion and that's also beneficial for weight loss ( if there even is such milk ). :shock:

Also, what's a good high fiber cereal brand? I can't seem to find any in the store next to me, maybe I'm looking wrong.

Well yes you can have Soy Milk, or Almond and Rice Milk as well. They will all be okay for you to have.

low carb/high nutrition not stressed enough...

Postby Jumanji23 » Tue Apr 14, 2009 8:15 pm

FOR EVERYONE on these posts, swanso and Boss man have excellent training AND nutrition ideas. As my two cents, I want to stress swanso's idea that you needn't much dairy at all. Dairy's vice is as bad as its virtue, and I believe you stick with a list of foods thats is virtue-heavy.

In other words, re milk w your cereal...try cassie's idea instead with your cereal---water and low-carb whey protein mix, NOT milk. and if you HAVE to have milk, make sure you account for the carb(sugar) content of carbs in the milk with your meal! Extra simple carbs past your body's tolerance in one of swanso's "feedings" will help you to store the carbs as fat.

I do NOT condone pork as an efficient protein and instead label it as a protein which is vice-heavy. Most complete proteins, especially meat and chicken, are highly acidic. if we don't chose a lot of the veggies (preferably raw like swanso and Boss Man recommend) and neutral-alkaline-heavy foods to accompany between 60-80% of our intake, these diet plans/workouts will not be operating at 100% efficiency. This is why I throw out dairy and pork.

One other note---at night time, provided your diet is in the 60-80% alkaline range, a really tough muscle building workout goes GREAT with proteins that break down slower, and lean red meat and your shakes such as cassein will do just that, so implement this as well.

Love the posts and the enthusiasm on here.

Lyrical,

im not a fan of the all-inclusive shake. there are cheaper whey alternatives that are non-fat. this is what you want, taken at same time WITH a SUGARY CARB. best bet is a fruit, i usually grab a handful of blueberries (1/4-1/2 serving) but if you stick with low carb sugary fruits, go ahead and eat rasberries, blackberries, watermelon and strawberries. 1/2-3/4 serving of any one of those with your NON-FAT whey protein powder will be better for your body's recovery (always within 30 minutes) than your muscle milk shake. (and for you, just as important---CHEAPER! so its win-win!)

nothing is set is set in stone and an extra 15g of carbs from milk post workout won;t hurt anyone anyway, it all goes to replenishment

swanso yeah they could be doing worse than muscle milk, but you would agree cheapest/best combined would be a cheap high quality whey protein and a sugary cheap carb, like a fruit antioxidant rich but fast sugar.

Ok, I followed along the post alright, but the cardio section, I understand the initial HIIT..then the 5 mins, but what is it you consider to be the " easy interval for 20 mins " perhaps you could enlighten me as to what that means, exactly ?..thanks.
