View Full Version : Let's Say Theoretically.....

Ok, I was just thinking that I could follow a low carb diet if I stopped buying eca and scrounged around for money, but the following would be the diet.

4 cans of tuna in oil.
8 cups of skim milk.
one peanut butter sandwich.

Now, let's say theoretically, if someone had the will power to eat this way every day while taking an a-z vitamin supplement, would they experience any health problems?

The diet would have me basically getting approx. 190-200 protein, around 90 fat, and 100 g carbs, it's right around there, I figured it earlier. It would be around 2k cals a day.

I just wanna know if it would be dangerous or anything.

would give you 120 gr of carbs and all of it sugar. Very bad idea for a low carb approach. The PB samich is also not a good idea. Natural PB is good for a low carb diet, bread is NOT. On a low carb diet you should be getting your carbs mainly from green leafy veggies and maybe a small serving of low GI fruit. I would have to give your plan a big thumbs down.

yer a lil off on the carbs, it would be 100 or a lil under and that is what I wanted to do. I might just end up havin to do a 40/30/30.

I was thinking of a 10 oz serving of skim having 15 gr. I just used 10 oz in my post workout shake and had 15 on the brain. I do still think that 8 cups of skim is a bad idea for a low carb diet.
If you are trying to get ripped I have found that a diet of 55% protein, 30% fat and 15% carbs with 2 carb up meals per week works very well. Grilled chicken breasts with a salad with vinegar and oil are a main stay when I eat like this. I also eat a lot of egg white and lean sirloin omelets and tons of tuna on this diet.

ah, there's where we're havin a problem, I'm not worried about getting ripped, I just wanna get solid.

Doesn't 1 cup of milk have 12g sugar? That would be a hefty amount of sugar per day.

All the milk I've ever got is 13g per cup.

Plus your going to get extreamly hungry with that little solid food. I suppose it could work though.

I didn't say I was gonna do it, I was just curious.

If anything I'll prolly just eat tuna to add protein into my diet without adding carbs.

What's the calorie total on that? Is the fat higher than the protein?
