    They sure don't seem too tough when you're doing them, but I felt pretty "run-over" the next day. Takes a lot out of you even if it is just upper body stuff.

    Thanks Ren, it really feels like a diet I can stick with long term.

    Things are going well with the menus for my diet. The high day is the toughest for me to endure with all that clean food, it makes me so bloated. Suprisingly, the low days are pretty easy to stick to, I think the meals spaced and planned out just right to keep me satisfied and not feeling hungry. The medium days are my favorite because it is pretty much how I eat most of the time when not dieting.

    I will have to find some alternatives to the chicken and turkey breasts, they are really upsetting my stomache. Man, I just hate poultry and I am already starting to dread eating another bite of it. I will start rotating in some talapia fish for variety. Also, one day I cooked up some ground turkey in taco seasoning and that was completely doable for me. Any other suggestions would be appreciated

    I'm only weighing and measuring myself on Wednesdays and Saturdays because I don't want to be a slave to the scale. Also, I know the changes are slow so there is no use weighing myself more than that. I hope to be down a total of three pounds by Saturday. My end goal is 15 lb in 12 weeks taking me to 220 lbs and I hope to see some ab outline by then. Not that I'm concerned with abs, I'm just using it as a marker for fitness and good health.

    I'm looking forward to today's workout, work is going to be tough to get through. Since I'm working heavy(ish) on my deadlift and really trying to progress on that lift, my squat sessions will be completely different than the deadlift workouts. I'm thinking lighter weights with high reps on the squats and some fun accessory lifts. Should be a good one, fun but not too brutal on the recovery. The focus right now has to be deadlifts and arms...and fat loss.

    I like ground turkey! We actually stopped buying hamburger meat as we can get the ground turkey for around 1/2 the cost and the macros are better.

    Do you like only Tilapia for fish or are you open to other breeds?

    Also, it's a smart idea not to be a slave to the scale. I'm a complete slave to it and it's a drag.

    That sucks that you don't like the chicken OR..

    What kind are you buying? Fresh kind from the super market or the frozen kind in bags?

    My favorite part of the diet IS the chicken, not because it tastes great, but because its so damn cheap...10 pounds for 17 bucks. You can easily make it taste good with seasoning too, but plain is fine too, thats how I eat it. Plain with soy sauce. Easy to get down...

    You could just add more lean, red meat to the diet...low days calls for higher fats anyway. Try 93/7 ground beef or something..that would taste good with the taco seasoning...

    Another thing I used to do before I started this diet is cook 1/2 pound ground beef and mix it together with a pound of rice and add some kind of sauce to it...

    Texas pete and soy sauce are both no calories.

    The two-a-day workouts on a cut must be taxing OR, awesome work on getting through it. No doubt you'll see some results. I agree that food gets pretty darn bland when dieting but as others said I found that using lots of 0 cal condiments helped a ton. I found a brown mustard at a local supermarket that was zero cals and I put it on nearly everything lol. Soy+Hot sauce are also good ideas.

    Also, you can get Walden Farms 0 cal dressings at most supermarkets for only $2 compared to the $5 if you order from the website, I have no clue as to what causes the such a price discrepancy. It seems the 0 cal syrups and stuff are only available through the website, I did manage to find the chocolate syrup at a store for only $1 so I stocked up.Maybe check out your store and see if they have some of the stuff, it's actually really tasty for 0 cal.

    You could probably make your own condiments and save some $. Combine soy, spices, lemon juice and 1 or 2 tsp. oil. Pour over chicken breasts, then marinate for a couple of hours or preferably overnight. Grill or broil as needed. 1 or 2 teaspoons of oil won't kill your diet. You'll have to adjust the spices to your taste. Stuff like salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, ginger, pepper, coriander, etc. You probably won't need as much salt because of the soy, and vice versa.

    I would also include lean red meats for variety and different kinds of fish. Condiments have made a big difference because eating plain chicken does get boring .

    That's one critical aspect of any diet. Many people feel so restricted by their diet that they can't stick with it. You need some adjustability and variety to make it work.

    I can say that when the calories get very low it just sucks. You are eatting a good deal of food right now, consider yourself lucky to be losing on that diet thus far.

    I like all kinds of fish, except salmon (on occassion). I really like almost all foods except poultry.

    I buy fresh chicken, but it doesn't help. I just hate the stuff. I'd use more beef, but I know the macros are way different. I'll try some seasoning techiniques.

    The two a days are tough, even for something light like arms. I will look into spicing up the chicken and see if it helps.

    I will probably swap in some different fish and red meats to take away the bulk of it. Then try some of the flavorings that other's have suggested in here.

    Thanks for the tips everybody, I will find a way to eat chicken yet

    For a low-carb meal I am very fond of tuna and avocado. You can add other ingredients that you think go well together. Lemon juice, relish, seasoning salt, or other seasonings can work.

    If you don't mind cooking stuff up I can get you an egg foo young recipe that tastes great with shrimp and chicken. The macro's on this are very good for a low-carb day as well.

    Fun day...

    Squats
    225 lbs x 20
    225 lbs x 20

    Db Swings
    100 lbs x 12
    100 lbs x 12

    Sled Pulls
    200 lbs x 8 pulls

    Notes:
    Not trying to kill myself but trying to get some good lower body work in. This hit the spot right on target. Just trying to save myself for deadlifts and arms, but not neglect the legs. This could quickly become my favorite workout of all time.

    Seems like a Fun day to me too. Just enough work for the legs without totally killing them for deads. 20 rep sets + sled drags probably got you some nice conditioning in too. I like the session a lot OR.

    Ah seeing 20 reppers back in the journal make me intensely happy. I have a really hard time eating chicken unless it's cooked on a grill myself. I don't know what it is about it, but baked or in a pan, I just can't eat it as easily, cooked on the grill? I'm all over that. Tuna is great, except for the pouched tuna, that didn't go over well either for me.

    I like to see the 20 repper squats back in this journal. The universe is back in balance, even if it is temporary.

    If you like different types of fish (especially tuna) then you should be able to get some leaner protein that way. It's just really hard to beat chicken breast for lean protein that is MEAT.

    It was perfect. I was huffing and puffing pretty good but not wiped-out.

    20 reppers is like visiting with an old freind for me.

    Haha...It felt natural and I'll keep the 20 reppers in there for the 12 weeks even though I might not push them too hardm right now.

    I've decided to go ahead and keep chicken in my lunch menu because it is really easy to take to work and I don't gag on it as much when I'm busy. For other meals I will be looking at ground turkey, lean meats, and fish.

    What about chicken salad? Canned chicken, mayo, dijon mustard, celery, a hard boiled egg, some chives, salt and pepper and you're good to go. Makes for a quick lunch, and if you can fit in bread, makes a great sandwich.
