Transformation fatasses, lets talk about diet...

I'm sitting here eating plain oatmeal after downing about 65g of protein powder this morning. Let's talk about how to really eat for this contest. I usually go out to eat for lunch and it consists of some chicken/fish and steamed vegetables. We need innovation to keep ourselves interested and get the fat off. Any ideas?

I've been eating simple for about a month now. I usually take my lunch to work and it consists of 2 turkey and cheese sandwichs and some chips. So far it's working.

I need some ideas, too. I've been bringing my lunch, usually one of the Harvest Selection soups by Del Monte. Low on calories, but the sodium is higher than I'd like.

I'm trying to eat more often with small portions. This is pretty much what I'm doing:

7:30am Banana
9:00am Oatmeal
10:30am Nutrigrain bar
12:00pm Soup
2:00pm Yogurt
4:00pm Cereal bar
6:00pm Dinner (whatever is cooked for me)
And if I get hungry sometime after dinner, I'll get a bowl of Cheerios.

Not perfect, but a start. I'd like to see what some of you other guys are doing.

Just ate a lean piece of beef jerky, strawberries, blueberries, an APEX cookie(best ever!), 40g protein shake, and about a half gallon of water.
Going to eat some wheat noodles, 50grams of baked chicken parmasan(breasts), and tomato sauce for lunch with about another half gallon of water.
Big meal comes later tonight(probably going to be Genghis Grill)!

Those cookies work ok for you? I see them all the time but figured they were full of junk along with the protein.

For fruit I like all the dried up shit that Wal-mart and Sam's sells. You just have to make sure it has no sugar added. The apricots are pretty bad ass.

breakfast - EAS Myoplex Light Shake
mid morning - Muscle Milk Light cookies and cream
lunch - 6 inch sub on wheat, or grilled chicken salad
mid day - low carb protein bar
dinner - chicken breast and veggies, or a smart ones/lean cuisine meal

on gym days, I add a Zero Carb Protein drink (tue.thur.sun)
on non gym days I'm on the treadmill

See you guys around 230-240 in a few months.

Yup, they are full of good natural energy(such as PURE sugar).
I don't eat a whole lot of carbs overall, so it is a good natural source and seems to be working for me.
I LOVE eating them right before a 2-3 hr leg workout.
I seem to never tire.

I mainly stick to fresh fruits or extract juices(due to potency).

I'd sugest letting everyone know that you've got a goal to reach, and that will be good 2-fold. First, it makes you accountable if they know that you're supposed to be dieting, and you suggest going to Fuddrucker's, and they'll hopefully know to back off when it comes to the lunch invites. If they give you hell and try to sabotage your efforts, they obviously don't care enough about you to be lunching with anyaway.

breakfast - oatmeal or nutragrain bar

break lunch into two meals/portions one at 10:45 one at 1:30 ish
usually chicken breast sandwich, one piece of wheat toast and some cheese (yeah yeah I know) and repeat at 1:30

or chicken breast and rice with a bit of honey for some sweetness...(yeah yeah I know on the honey)

Protein shake sometimes before workout if not a scoop of peanut butter

or protein shake after lifting (syntha6 with skim milk)

then something for dinner that changes nightly.

My battles are weekends...lunch/dinner with the girl usually ends like this..

Well, just doing that I've dropped 3 lbs, and that was before I started running. I try and eat before I get hungry. I'm an endomorph so I try and keep the ole metabolism burning hot.

I started substituting my standard lunch of the day with a grilled chicken salad (no cheeses, high calorie dressings, or other fatty shit) and noticed about a 10lb weigh loss in a little over a month. This was starting with little to lose as well. I also substituted protein shakes for certain snacks.

Food idea: something I used to do in past diets...make a peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat, cut it up in 4ths and I'd eat a 1/4 for in between meal snacks. Sometimes I'd cut up some fruit to put on it (apples, bananas).

For the most part I've got this.

Syntha 6 shake when I wake up (1 scoop).
Usually within an hour of that...5 eggs....2 whole, 3 egg whites. I either eat the eggs by themselves or wrap them up in a tortilla and add a spoon of salsa.

Around 11am - chicken breast, brown rice, 1 cup of broccoli

About a half hour before my workout, I'll eat a PB sandwich on wheat bread.

Immediately after my workout (usually around 5:30), I have another dose of Sytha 6 (2 scoops)

Around 7ish, I'll have more chicken of some sort with brown rice and broccoli or tilapia with brown rice and broc.

If I get hungry later on, I'll have some almonds and spoon of peanut butter.

An hour at Arbor Hills 3x a week will burn some calories! Just push it out...you should be able to get 4 laps in during 1 hour (it'll only hurt for a little while). I can get 5 in right now when I'm motivated.

Kick the cheerios out the window for some lowfat cottage cheese. Cheerios are not good for pre bedtime snack or for breakfast for the drive in insulin levels it can create.

Trade the cereal bars for plain almonds or egg whites.

Gotta have some variety.

Things that keep me going...
2 cups of cheerios for breakfast, or maybe some egg beaters.
Sipping on a shake all morning, maybe an apple
Coffee
Lunch... who knows. I keep it healthy but I don't do the same thing every day. It usually involves lots of sliced turkey
I keep a 1lb bag of beef jerky and a can of almonds at my desk for afternoon snacks
Every Sunday I bake a bunch of chicken breasts, so during the week, when all else fails, dinner is a huge chunk o' chicky w/ some brown rice.
Sugar free jello or pudding makes a nice snack.
Diet cherry vanilla DP will kick my sweet tooth.

Of course all of that is throughout a day of work, gym and riding.



My new and improved knee got the OK from the doc at the same time our new years contest at work got going, so I started tracking everything again... For not holding myself to a hard and fast diet I'd say I'm doing ok. I started another spreadsheet for this contest too.

(The gap is the time when I was out of town for a week and a half and was also 'pausing' the work contest b/c the Stangs contest was coming up. Held steady for the break and started back up a few days ago)

I had those, they are awesome.They have some that they sell in this weird see through clear container lately that are a little better. If you go to Sam's they have big bags of them, they are a different brand but about the same quality maybe a little worse but a lot cheaper. Sam's also has some bags of dried peaches. The peaches look and smell terrible, i guess that is maybe why you don't see many dried peaches, but they taste great.

The peaches look and smell terrible, i guess that is maybe why you don't see many dried peaches, but they taste great.

I don't have a Sam's Club membership, but those apricots in the black trays are expensive. Something like $6/pound or so if I remember right.

I also like the almonds that the sell like that.

Eating right isn't cheap... No wonder America is fat as hell. When you can go get a burger/fries/coke for $5 and it takes $10 to eat salad, you can see why..

Any MSG or how much sodium in that soup? I used to eat those things until I looked at the label and pulled a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot...something like 80% of my sodium for the day...

in the mornings, I usually do a shake. Then I run a mile and walk a mile. then a small bowl of oatmeal. At lunch I use a meal replacement shake and a carrot or a stalk of celery. Cardio has been taebo that last for an hour. at night I usually eat chicken or talapia with brown rice or whole wheat pasta. I go run another 1 to 2 miles and walk another 1 to 2 miles. I have been doing this since last thursday and the scale has dropped in to the 260s woot woot. I like the progress already.

That's actually not that bad compared to some of the canned soups I've seen. actually looks pretty good.

Well shit, you got to get you a Sam's membership then. I think it is $40 a year or so. They got those apricots, the peaches, cranberries and a few other things like that. Plus they have pretty good prices on Myoplex protein, Muscle Milk, etc. They don't carry that much in the way of supplements but I have yet to beat their prices. The Myoplex 42g ready to drink shake is $11 for a 4 pack at Wal-mart but at Sam's you get 12 of them for $25.

My mom usually has the same thing and she is going on 60 lbs of weight lost in the last 8 to 9 months. They are good but just dont ever double the portions at once.

I didn't realize they were that cheap there!
Can you just get chocolate or is it a mixture of the three flavors?
I usually get all my Detour bars there.

One flavor. It's three of those 4 packs of ready to drink boxes in one bigger box. I've noticed that they only have them sporadically, sometimes they are out for a week or two.
