Anyone heard of this? Its basically alot of meats, salads and fruits with as little grain as possible. It also calls for alot of water as well.

The key to cutting is calorie, not carbohydrate, restriction.

And even if you were to do that you would need to be a little more precise about it. Like making sure you get enough fat and protein.

*raises hand*

that's pretty much how i eat. well with the inclusion of dairy...but grains and starches and sugars are kept to a minimum. It works really really well too. (ignore the part about cutting back on fruit....by cutting the grains you are doing yourself a world of good) :thumbup:

I'm just curious how you'd lose a lot of muscle on a diet like this? I mean you're getting plenty of proteins and fat from the meats (assuming you are eating some steak and beef), getting plenty of fiber from the green veggies in the salad (can add olive oil also to get more good fats), get carbs from the fruits. I don't see really anything wrong with this. Maybe throw a few eggs in, some oatmeal, whey shake for post workout, and some flaxseed oil and this could be a pretty good cutting diet.

To get enogh carbs you'll have to eat veggies all day long.

That is what the fruit is for.

The idea is to remove processed grains from your diet.

In general, that's a good thing.

You can get plenty of carbs from fruit, nuts, and leaves.

actually a very good diet for cutting. Anyone who has gained fat from vegetable and fruits, please raise their hand??!!!?

Removing all refined foods from the diet, will most likely automatically lead to fat loss, and fast.

This type of diet is pretty good long term.

Plenty of protein, fibre, natural fats, carbs the way nature intended, antioxidants etc etc.

ALso, there is the "'stickability" factor- you can eat like this for a good period of time.

I personally see no problems with low-gi, relatively unprocessed carbohydrate sources like oats, sweet potatoes, and brown rice; I simply cannot function without some carbs in my diet. It's just me. This is not to say I eat a high-carb diet, however; I'm currently (unreasonably) aiming for a clean bulk with 45 % caloric intake in the form of carbohydrate.
