View Full Version : My new diet

05-02-2002, 07:41 AM
I know that "PowerMan" and "diet" in the same sentence are practically an oxymoron, but I've got some flab to drop over the next 8 weeks. Here's what I've set up so far:

Sunday - 5:00pm Friday:

-3 egg whites
-1 cup oats

-1 can of tuna
-1 apple

-8oz chicken or beef
-small salad w/ dressing

-1 can of tuna w/ cottage cheese
-1 tbsp olive oil and/or some peanuts

-Prelift: 1 scoop of whey w/ orange juice
-Postlift: 1 scoop of whey w/ water
1 can of tuna w/ cottage cheese

-8oz chicken or beef
-1 tsp olive oil and/or peanuts

5:00pm Friday till pass-out Saturday night:

Whatever the hell I want whenever I want it.

I'm not a terribly strict dieter and never will be, but this is about as structured as I'll be able to get it.

I don't see a 26er of Wild Turkey in your diet...what's going on? :confused:

That falls under the "till I pass out Saturday night" category.

Breakfast seems a little skimpy on protein.

true, 3 egg whites is like 11g of protein.

What about adding a scoop of protein powder to your oatmeal. will make it taste better too.

Surely Lucifer is in desperate need of a blanket and a warm cup of cocoa right now...

BTW, what you've listed looks almost like a keto--it's awfully low in carbs. I'd say you could can safely eat more carbs, and certainly have some after lifting(Some malto or dextrose) Otherwise, I think you're gonna find your strength levels--which obviously are very important--are really gonna suffer.

He's right DL....you're not going for keto are you?

No. This is a basic guideline which may (read will) change as I get into it.

Main things to remember:

Friday and Saturday nights, which precede my Saturday and Sunday workouts, are calorie heavy, and carb heavy in particular. I'm not too worried about strength levels dropping because of that.

Secondly, I'll make sure to eat enough carbs before and after the workout to keep things on par.

It looks pretty low in cals to me, I would say ease into the diet a little more, and up the cals, especially at first.
