View Full Version : My Sample day - Fox
This has been posted elsewhere but I've tweaked it a little to go with my fight club workout. I will be glad to keep a log if there's interest, but it might be boring as dinner tends to be the only variable.
6 am - Big Scoop of Peanut butter
8 am - Venti Sarbucks Coffee (decaf) w/ heavy cream - (used to be a mocha but I can't see that on my lean, mean workout) :twisted:
12 noon - the patties off a Cheeseburger
3:00 pm - shot of no carb whey protien 20 grms or so
7:00 pm - Some meat/fish based dinner. Small salad.
9:00 pm - carblite bar or coffee w/ cream
drink about 64 oz of water or decaf ice tea throughout the day.
Multi vitamin and seperate multi mineral.
With relatively minimal variety do you find it difficult to stick with this diet for months at time? Perhaps I should ask if this is a diet with an end goal or a sustainable way of eating for your life?
Also, and I know this has been discussed all over the place, but why are protein diets supposed to work so well? It seems that as omnivores we should be eating pretty much everything.
That being said my own diet might seem to be a protein diet removed by a few degrees. The big thing for me is not eating heavily processed starches and sugars like chips, candy, twinkies etc. Indeed I'll even avoid crackers, bread, pasta etc. but my weak will gets the best of me there =)
Thanks for the post!
Fact is I've been eating like this for years. I eat steak, lamb, chicken, burgers, tuna, salmon, sushi, sea bass, eggs, all prepared all different ways at night, so variety is not a worry.
On the omnivore question I'd say 2 things.
There's a philosophical concept called the biological fallacy - it's actually used by Kantian's and others who believe in evolution but still believe in God. Just because you discover the biological reason behind a certain phenomena ie evolution - doesn't mean you found the cause. Maybe this is how God made man. Likewise, just because we have the ablity to digest things, doesn't mean it's the optimal diet. In no way a perfect metaphor - it just came to mind.
More to the point - I agree that a certain amount of fresh green veggies is fine - and in fact adds very few carbs. I eat salad regularly. The thing is it's very hard for most people to draw the line. They go from veggies, to sugary fruits, to potatoes and bread, to protien shakes with bananas etc...and that's that. "Natural" becomes an excuse.The zone diet became the diet of movie stars because unless some one is preparing every meal for you, and measuring it - it will never work. I also believe in supplements.
If you go no carb 90% of the time - it's hard to screw up.
