fitday breakkdown:

11-20-2005, 06:37 PM
I don't eat carbs in M1 either.

my solution was Apple juice actually.

I read that carbs in the morning will help break ur bosy from a catabolic to anabolic.

anyway, i know you know your stuff, so how does the diet look to you?

11-20-2005, 07:48 PM
Don't do juice.

If you want carbs in the AM, eat oatmeal or whole grain toast.

M2 lacks protein. So does M4.

there is no protein in nuts (pb and mixed nuts)?

11-20-2005, 07:57 PM
what is the reason against juice?

11-20-2005, 08:04 PM
fructose, too much sugar, nothing but sugar water.

Nobody should be drinking fruit juice. You want fruit, eat it, don't drink it.

Yes but the major component is fat. Add some protein or something to the meals that lack protein. I like to mix nuts and apples into cottage cheese, gives me a little bit of everything, which is what you should aim for at every meal. Try not to forget any of the macros.

Nuts are a fat source. They don't have enough protein to be much of a protein source.

11-20-2005, 09:11 PM
ok so idea's for quick protien, not from shakes or something that takes prep time (those two meals are meals i will not have time to prepare for)

11-20-2005, 09:11 PM
Cottage cheese?

sure it does eat a whole jar of peanut butter and youll get over 100 grams of protein :)

Nuts are a fat source. They don't have enough protein to be much of a protein source.Since when is the 36g of protein in my cup of peanuts not much of a protein source?

11-21-2005, 12:55 PM
Since when? Since you have eat a cup of 'em to get a "serving" of protein, and that serving of 38 grams of protein comes with 72 grams of fat - you need to eat 648 calories of fat to get 154 calories of protein. (While we're at it, there's carbohydrate in eggs. You eat eggs as a carbohydrate source?)

So, yeah, there's protein in peanuts, and you're bulking, so the extra 650 calories that tags along in the form of fat won't interfere with YOUR physique goals, but I somehow doubt you're eating peanuts for the protein, crip, since 75% of the calories in peanuts comes from fat. That being said, they're a great source of healthy fat.

Buddy's eating a tablespoon of peanut butter with his oatmeal and thought he was getting protein in his meal from this. He's getting a few grams of protein from it, but not enough to qualify as meal.

Nutritional breakdown of one cup of peanuts:

source grams cals %total
Total: 848
Fat: 72 648 75%
Sat: 10 90 10%
Poly: 23 205 24%
Mono: 36 321 37%
Carbs: 28 57 7%
Fiber: 13 0 0%
Protein: 38 154 18%

For a tablespoon of peanut butter:

source grams cals %total
Total: 95
Fat: 8 73 75%
Sat: 2 15 15%
Poly: 2 20 20%
Mono: 4 35 36%
Carbs: 3 9 9%
Fiber: 1 0 0%
Protein: 4 16 16%

i need to figure out what to eat with the oats pb then, as well as the pb, apple.

P.S. Built your love for PB is like my love of Avocados!

11-21-2005, 04:53 PM
I love those too.

How about keeping some hard boiled eggs handy? Peel 'em, toss the yolk if you can't afford the cals.

I eat 6 for breakfast every morning - toss all but one or two of the yolks. Pat of butter and a ton of salt.


11-21-2005, 06:52 PM
well here is the issue(s)

those 2 meals are during work. I cant cook there, and I refuse to microwave. Eggs are a great idea, but knowing myself ill get sick of them really fast.

i though of deli meat but again since i have that for my lunch 2 x in 1 day is a little much.

So that is why i need fast, non smelling non shake protein, and i am stumped!

11-21-2005, 06:53 PM
P.S. why do u throw away half of the nutrition with the rest of the yolks?

11-21-2005, 07:12 PM
Try cottage cheese.

I toss the yolks for calorie control when I want more protein but not as much fat.
