    So in other words he gave you a one time diet template. Thus he doesn't do you diets anymore.

    Correct way to put it would've been "This is the dude that wrote a diet for me."

    Okay, this is the guy that wrote my diet. And he probably wouldn't have me bulk for so long, but thats a personal decision.

    Low bar - break at the hips, sit back
    High bar - break at the knees, back upright.

    My bar position tends to be identical for both.

    Not sure if this helps but here's a few recipes I go to. They all taste good and the best part is they can be adjusted for macros without compromising anything. Also, for the most part they can be eaten hot or cold and can be portioned out into individual servings for throughout the week. I usually eyeball measurements and adjust them depending on my requirements for the day so these are just guidelines.

    Quinoa Chicken Bowl:
    Diced chicken breast or thighs
    Cooked Quinoa
    chopped scallions
    feta cheese
    pumpkin seeds or pine nuts, sunflower seeds
    vinagrette (olive oil, white wine vinegar or lemon juice, minced garlic and shallots)

    Cook the chicken then combine with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add the vinagrette and mix.

    Fritattas
    Eggs and egg whites
    Cheese - Feta,
    diced sweet potatoes

    Tuna and Chickpea salad
    2 cans tuna mixed with whole grain mustard, mayo, capers, green onion
    Chickpeas with marinated artichoke hearts, chopped spinach or kale, red onion and white wine vinegar
    Combine tuna and chickpeas

    Asian Burrito
    Sauce: Hosein, sriracha, garlic, ginger, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil - combine in a bowl
    lb minced turkey breast
    Cooked quinoa
    slaw - shredded carrot, napa cabbage, scallion, sesame seeds with oil and rice wine vinegar. Combine.

    Sautee the turkey until cooked, mix in cooked quinoa stir in sauce and reserve some for drizzling
    Place in high-protein whole wheat wrap, top with slaw and fold. Bake or cook in a pan seam-side down until wrap is toasted.

    Morrocan Lamb Tagine:
    Spice Mix: ground coriander, dried thyme, ground allspice, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, ground cinnamon (or use a pre-packaged blend)
    Cubed lamb
    one onion chopped
    four cloves garlic minced
    can of diced tomatoes
    cubed sweet potatoes
    almonds

    Sear off the lamb in a dutch oven until brown on all sides. Remove the lamb , drain excess fat then sautee onions and garlic. Once they're translucent return the lamb to the pot and add the tomatoes sweet potatoes and water or stock to just cover. Cook at a simmer for about an hour and a half until lamb is tender.

    Serve over couscous, quinoa or rice garnished with almond slices

    Smoked Mozzarella Stuffed Turkey Meatballs

    Meatballs -- combine ground turkey with one egg, minced garlic and panko breadcrumbs soaked in milk. Form meatballs.
    Place a cube of mozzarella in the center and form meatball around cheese until sealed.
    Bake at 400 until done.
    Place meatballs in your favourite tomato sauce and warm through. Serve with pasta.

    Chicken Greens and Roasted Poblano
    2 fresh poblano chiles
    3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
    1/2 medium white onion, sliced
    3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
    5 cups (lightly packed) coarsely chopped, spinach
    1 cup chicken broth

    Cook the chicken, set aside. Roast poblanos over flame or under the broiler then peel.
    Sautee garlic and onions and spinach. Add broth, cook down for a minute then add the greek yogourt chicken and poblanos.
    Cook for a few minutes until sauce consistency is achieved.

    Serve over rice, quinoa, couscous or with pita, wrap, etc....

    Instant Oatmeal + Protein Powder + Peanut butter in the correct proportion is probably the cheapest way to do that probably.

    It tastes like mush but on the flipside you won't get sick of the mush?

    Ok. That's good to know. I haven't read it actually.

    I just know that a big proportion of the top powerlifters in Sweden, raw and equipped, use RTS-style templates. Thought it'd be useful to learn about different ways of implementing self regulation and the methods he uses for determining how far you should push yourself when you have no set plan.

    I've gotten a good grasp about how it works from just reading his articles on reactivetrainingsystems.com so yeah, the book might not be needed. Mike also likes to use a lot of complicated terms, lol

    After reading Gregs "squatting for your body type" article, I'm starting to think high bar could benefit me. I wanna try to stay more upright (problematic for me since I'm tall with long legs) and put more emphasis on the quads and high bar will do just that. gonna try it tomorrow.

    How much does he charge for diet coaching? Would be interesting to see what he'd recommend.

    @conceptionist From Greg's website, he appears to charge $500 for training programs and counseling and for diet/nutrition it's $250 and both are for 12wks...

    Alright.
    Thanks for the info guys.

    I just made a search on Dr. Israetel from RP and it turns out I've already read many of his articles and am implementing his general diet recommendations. It may not be tailored exactly to my need, but I'm gaining weight, strength and size on a good rate so I'm not really in need for any diet advice.

    The Swedish coach i have in mind charges about 30 USD a week. Probably gonna turn to him when I don't know what to do with my programming.

    RHET bros, what app(s) do you use to track diet and stuff? The GF wants to track her workouts and food intake using her iphone. Looking for something that is powerful and customizable and preferably free?

    Myfitnesspal works really well.
    Even have a function that allows you to scan the barcode to put in foods. Enormous food base as well.
