What's your diet like?

Post  sgsims1 on Thu Apr 15, 2010 12:49 pm

I'd love to see this topic started by Glynn and Adnan....Glynn, you did a really cool thing elsewhere where you actually took pictures of your daily meals....when you get time, could you duplicate that here?

And Adnan, how about telling everyone how you came around to your Intermittent Fasting (IF) technique?

Training Day Feeds – 2nd December 2009

Post  thebiggfella on Thu Apr 15, 2010 3:40 pm

A picture tells a thousand words as they say. As per Steve's request above, here's some photos of everything that I ate on 2nd December 2009. It was a training day so I ate more than what I would on a non-training day. Here we go, seven feeds altogether:

Feed 1 (0845 hours)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
¾ cup oatmeal, 2 cups water, 1 scoop protein powder, 1 whole egg, mixed unsalted nuts, dried fruit & cinnamon. Yes, I know what it looks like!

WORKOUT (0940 hours)

Feed 2 (0950 hours)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
1 scoop protein powder & 700 ml water, sipped over a period of an hour directly after the workout.

Feed 3 (1215 hours)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Shredded Wheat, semi-skimmed milk, dried fruit & granulated sweetener.

Feed 4 (1510 hours):
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Fresh tuna steak, baked potato with olive oil, asparagus, broccoli, green beans and a spicy tomato sauce with mushrooms & courgettes.

Feed 5 (1730 hours)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Braeburn apple (if you’re interested!).

Feed 6 (1830 hours)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
1 chicken breast, spinach, kale, Chinese leaf, broccoli, red onion, cherry tomatoes, red peppers, red chillies, jalapeno peppers, grapes & sugarsnap peas, dressed with olive oil & lemon juice.

Feed 7 (2145 hours)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Chicken, mushroom & courgette omelette (½ chicken breast & 3 whole eggs) with salad (spinach, kale, Chinese leaf, broccoli, asparagus, red onion, cherry tomatoes, red peppers, red chillies, jalapeno peppers, grapes & sugarsnap peas, dressed with olive oil & lemon juice).

Throughout the day, I also had the following to drink:

8 pints of water.
5 mugs of coffee
3 mugs of green tea
1 mug of fruit tea
1 can of no added sugar ginger beer

So there you have it, a typical days worth of food for a training day. All tasty, nutritious and quick and easy to prepare.

Diet

Post  Greg Roseman on Thu Apr 15, 2010 8:27 pm

I've used IF the past year and a half along with a high fat diet. I usually don't eat till sometime between 2-4 pm and again around 8-9pm. I've found that frequent meals are just a tease. Its like limiting a drunk to one drink. Its just enough to piss you off. When I eat a high fat diet twice a day, I can have 2 meals at about a 1000 calories each. Each of my meals about 70% fat, 25% protein, 5% carbs. No hunger, no cravings, no set schedule, don't have to plan, eat till satisfied, let hunger dictate when I eat. Just my experience. Glynn you look great and can't argue with your results. I wished I looked half as good.

Interesting stuff, Greg and welcome to the forum. I've had some success combining some IF techniqes with a higher protein/fat and lower carb diet. Can you share your fat loss results with this approach?

Hi Greg. Thanks for your kind comments and great to see you here. I've been following your progress on BBS and via your emails where you talk about IF. Adnan (AceHIT) has also had great result with it. Dr. David Shores is another guy who swears by it. He consumes all his calories between 1700 - 0000 and is going great guns on it. It's certainly another avenue to go down and opens up a whole new approach to fat loss/muscle & strength gains.

Contrary to what you've found, I like the idea of eating fairly frequently. I hope my photos above show that you can eat large portions frequently throughout the day and still keep the fat off. It's all about what you eat really, and how much of it you eat. It's easy once you settle down into a routine. I suppose IF will be the same.

The bottom line is to stick with what works for you be it frequent eating, IF or whatever. Hopefully Adnan will chip in with his experiences with IF and it would be great if you could share some more of your experiences with it.

My diet is just fairly typical and `balanced`

B`fast; porridge ( usually one of those `oat so simple`packs ) + toast with jam

mid morn; Whey shake + a banana

Lunch; Tuna salad sandwich on wholemeal bread ( or can of mackerel + wholegrain rice)

Mid aft; Handful of nuts + piece of fruit

Evening meal ; chicken breast , broccoli

A couple of glasses of red wine in the evening.

I have looked at and was tempted by diets such as `paleo` or `Anabolic` etc , but TBH I prefer the simplicity of `normal` convienient eating.

Best wishes T.

Re: What's your diet like?

Post  HDHITman on Fri Apr 23, 2010 6:03 pm

I follow a semi-strict Paleo diet of lean meats, vegetables, fruit, and a little dairy(prohibited if on a strict Paleo diet). My macronutrients breaks down to about 35% Protein, 45% Carbohydrates and 20% Fat, that is the basic breakdown for me the only thing that changes is caloric comsumption based on whether I am wanting to gain lean mass or burn of bodyfat. Right now I am using a modified Get Lean First program (created by John Heart you might remember him from Pure HIT). So basically Monday through Friday I eat 1500 calories(train twice per week) following the above macros, then most of the day Saturday I use a Intermittent Fasting protocol that allows a protein shake for breakfast then just snacking on small portions of fruit and veggies till roughly 5-6 pm then I eat one large meal of whatever I want till I have satiety. Sunday I will have my free day and I will eat whatever I want all day within reason and satiety, this allows me to get the foods I crave and slip at little away from the Paleo. Also Sunday I really dont count the number of calories or number of meals either, just use it as a reload to get through the next week. Doing it this way give me at least a 2-3lbs loss per week with no cardio.

Thank you comments and critiques welcome.

Get yourself off to an all you can eat Chinese buffet! I'm going out for an Indian meal and a beer or ten tonight. I don't do that every week, maybe twice a month on average. Nice. Twisted Evil

I haven't a clue what he's been up to. I've not seen or heard anything about him since Pure HIT closed.

He is very busy from what I have read. He was able to work out a deal with Mentzer's business partner Joanne Sharkey, so along with being able to have phone consultation with John Little, you also have the option if you are going to be in the California area to purchase in the gym training done by John Heart, but I am not sure what the cost is on that I am going to assume for the 250 you get the a 1hr session and two half hour session after that just like you do with the phone consultations.

Good question! John is one of the few old-school HIT guys who I haven't had the pleasure of being in contact with. If anyone knows him and would like to invite him, please do.

I was a bit showing off I have to admit! Rolling Eyes
It would be more correct to write "all you WANT TO eat whenever you want"! Wink
Except for the chocolate (Ritter Sport "Olympia") I stuck to the normal day schedule yesterday.
Chinese buffets aren't my thing really, the indian stuff on the other hand... cyclops

The Indian meal was excellent as usual: assorted tandoori, naan and a chapati. The lager and Guinness weren't too bad either! The same place does an all you can eat lunch buffet which I have to admit, I've visited on more than one occasion. Lovely grub!
