None really. I can't stand to measure, count, etc. My general approach is vegetable, lean protein, nuts and fruit... in that order, followed by a sane allowance of whole grains/legumes. (Rye bread, brown rice, oatmeal, etc).

Two meals a week I'll eat whatever I want. I generally try to save these for unexpected social events.

Today-
Bkfst-Oatmeal with apples and walnuts.
Lunch- walnut/cranberry/chicken wrapped in collard greens and baked (leftovers from dinner)
Dinner- will be w.w. pasta with kale, tomatoes etc and some homemade turkey jerky on the side.

None at breakfast today. Chopped chicken breast (probably 4oz) with collards at lunch, and about the same from turkey at dinner.Generally not more than 3-4oz at lunch and dinner plus some mornings get cottage cheese, eggs and/or post workout whey protein shake. I am not very kunked.

Alright. 4 large chicken breasts - 180g protein, 12 g fat 8 tbsp chickpea sauce (chickpeas, vegetable stock, garlic, tons of different spices) - 25g carbohydrates 720+108+100 = 928 calories no ecg, o3, multivitamin, calcium, Did the "crossfit" warmup. Did not time. No more mourning. I'll start weighing, carefully calculating, and timing things tomorrow. Holy crap Kunk has crazy stats. Francese = fried chicken cutlet? Nice. Eason is here. Haven't seen db_ggmm in awhile.

I've been following the guide posts set out in this article for the last four weeks. Nothing revolutionary, but it prompted me to start doing regular circuit-like training with moves such as lunges and deadlifts again after probably a year of avoiding them.

Trying to cut, but unlike past attempts, it seems to be working. The circuit training has definitely helped, but maintaining a food journal/FitDay for more than four consecutive days has really put day-to-day eating in perspective. I was taking in way too many starchy carbs and calories for my goals.

The above article suggests going 400 calories below maintenance. I wasn't using FitDay for the first couple weeks, instead just writing down everything I ate. Once I started logging that food in, I realized I was still eating at maintenance or above pretty much every day. On the suggestion for FFB's from Shugart, I shaved off an extra 100 calories, meaning I'm eating at about 1,800 calories right now instead of 1,900.

For the next couple weeks, I'm cutting non-veggie carbs to pretty much my PWO shake. I'll have one refeed day, but otherwise, I'm probably looking at around 70-80 carbs before considering fiber.

It's obviously not a caloric intake I want to maintain for too extended a period of time. What's odd about this, though, is eating at such a deficit has led to me eating more veggies and lean cuts of meat than usual to get the most bang for my caloric buck.

My stack is also pretty basic: whey protein, fish oil, and ZMA. Was taking creatine until I ran out a couple weeks ago.

Been kicking around the idea of picking up some BCAA's and HotRox. Can anyone speak of the former's worth in a daily stack?

What kind of weight training uses more calories than what 'cardio'?

And what are these mystical metabolic processes?

The third point is abjectly idiotic for reasons clearly explained elsewhere.

I can't speak for the author, but I know three circuits of lunges, deadlifts, etc. leaves me gasping for breath quicker than say, a 20-minute run.

Run faster.

i personally prefer 2-3 cycles of tabatas to running or steady-state cardio. just prefernece as I find running painfully boring.
post #45 of 325
Same deal here. I'll run here and there, but find it too uninteresting to do regularly. My hat's off to those who run regularly and find joy/reward in it. I'd rather be left gasping from Tabata or circuits of lifts than a run.
