Aight, I should probably read it before I bash it. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Only way I approach the gym is 100% or nothing. I like looking ripped and lean versus feeling satiated.

 

Eat less and do 45 minutes 5-6 days per week on the treadmill, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Pay attention to the number of calories burned each time you're on the treadmill. Aim for 300-400 calories burned. Don't stop till you get at least 300. If your diet and calories are dialed in and you're running the treadmill, you'll start losing weight immediately.

In addition hit the weights 3-4 times per week.

Fist sized good clean sources of protein 5-6 meals per day.
Carbs in the first 3-4 meals only.
Fat in the first three meals only.
Eat as many veggies as you want. Greens like broccoli and spinach. Green beans. Tomatoes.
Fruit after workouts only. Limit it greatly.

I personally don't think you have to count calories. It's not that complicated. But in too many cases guys just aren't open minded or willing enough to eat properly. I tend to think that guys train hard enough, but it's the diet part that's usually out of whack.

I mean it's a 20/4 fast but you're allowed to eat fruit + light dairy during the day. Basically it's a fancy way of saying i'm skipping breakfast and having a shake for lunch.

I don't know how to cook chicken without it tasting shit, without using butter or oil. I just put up with it. How are you guys cooking your BSCB's?

What's wrong with butter or oil?


I get more out of chicken if I marinade it overnight. Also, if you cook it wrapped in wax paper or whatever, it retains moisture. Apparently cooking with stuff in foil is bad now?

you might just not like chicken.

My answer is, there's nothing cheap or convenient about eating "good" foods; I buy almost 100% of my foods that have the organic labels. This goes for all of the nutrients that I buy: proteins, carbs, and fats. They're ALL expensive. One bag of organic broccoli costs almost half as much as a "combo meal" at a fast food place.

Plain chicken does taste like shit.... I generally either season it heavily or hit it with flavored bread crumbs and fry it

I dont know how people do plain ground chicken and shit. Sounds horrible

Are the foods actually materially better than non-organic stuff? Seems more like you are into bragging about paying more. Its not like non-organic broccoli is bad for you

The night before I write down what I plan to eat the next day. I plan ahead and write in the times and the kinds of meals that I plan on eating. I plan to eat 5-6 meals daily, 2-3 hours apart. Proteins are to be consumed at every meal; fats are to be included in the first 3 meals only; and carbs in the first 3-4 meals (this goes down to 2 meals when I'm purposely leaning out).

 

The day of, I check off the meals that I eat. If I deviate from the plan, I mark that, too.

 

I find it easy to write down and plan my meals. The challenging part is actually following through and sticking to the plan. Having a specific goal in mind is what keeps me focused enough and makes writing down my meals worthwhile. I'll plan a 8-week goal or a 4-week goal. Anything to keep me focused.

Yeah, there's really not any difference, especially if you wash that stuff out. I don't buy into the 'organic is always better' hype. It's stupid. 

 

I'm glad that guy is into paying more for food though. Good for him.

IME Organic meat, dairy and produce does actually taste better.

Whether it's "healthier" is another story.
post #48029 of 57260
The only things I go out of the way to buy organic are coffee, sweet potatoes, eggs and spinach. And that's because price differential isn't too much, the only other criteria I have is that coconut oil is unrefined and red meat and butter is grass fed.
However, if I could afford it I would buy everything organic.

I buy my meat from whole foods because; I think it taste better, grassfed beef does has less fat, and whole foods butcher area is super clean compared to Publix/HarrisTeeter/Kroger/Walmart etc. Cleanliness is like the #1 reason.

I go to whole foods buy my meat from there, eggs, and like a fancy snack, then I pop over to local grocery store and pick up my yummy cheap carbs.
