The Richie Glanzer "Diet"

Hey guys, so I'm around 5'9 205 pounds. I've lost some weight since April 20 when I started. I went from a size 38 (almost size 40) to an in between size 36/38. (Tight at 36 pants falling down at 38). I'd love to get to a size 34 and look great but I cant really go crazy with a diet bc I'll just revert. This is what I eat/drink. I do crossfit 5 times a week typically.

Just curious what you think? Keep in mind I only grill bc I'm a horrible cook and don't like to take time out of my day for cooking outside of doing it on the grill.

Morning:
A little water and an apple before I go to crossfit. (This I cant change bc I cant eat more than that before crossfit)

Lunch:
Typically some white rice with corn/peas (in the frozen veg isle)
A leg 1/4 of a chicken you buy at a supermarket.
power bar.
water

Dinner
some sort of frozen veggies (though often its more corn)
two pork chops
water

Snacks
Big bowl of fruit (grapes, melon, pineapple)
***some unhealthy snack like ice cream, pound cake etc. I do this 2-3 times a week***

Sundays:
Whatever I want and it usually involves soda/beer/pasta/pizza/cupcake.

Re: The Richie Glanzer "Diet"

I'm not going to bother figuring the calories on that, but I can't imagine it sustaining me for 4-5 workout days per week.

Do you mean its too much or too little food intake?

Your mileage may vary, but that would not be nearly enough food for me.

Appreciate your input. It actually isn't *that* hard keeping this up since I workout when I wake up. So my body isn't starving when I'm working out. But maybe I need to add some food. If you have a non-fat and easy to buy (not cook) suggestion...

Re: The Richie Glanzer "Diet"

I'm a bit tired to give a full answer, but I'll say this:

* Learn to cook. Really.

* Don't fall into the trap of judging your progress by your weight or even by how your clothes fit. How fit you are is (at least in my opinion) best expressed by the work that you can get your body to perform. This forum has seen many many folks come in focused on losing weight, going on a low-cal (practically crash) diet, and come back later wondering why their performance has either tanked or just isn't getting better. Don't be that guy. Eat in a way that supports constant performance improvement.

* I have no non-fat suggestions. Fats (the right ones, and in the right quantities ) are good for you and essential to your diet.

* Don't ask for non-fat suggestions right after posting that you eat "some unhealthy snack" 2-3 times per week and some other sort of garbage on Sundays.

* Learn to cook. Really.


- Mark

You're fat, eating more will not make you less fat.

Re: The Richie Glanzer "Diet"

I agree with the "Not enough food" idea. I'm at 200 and I eat considerably more. However, the big thing I see is that you eat basically nothing in the morning till lunch. An apple has all of 90 calories. And it doesn't stick with you. No Post workout meal/shake? As I understand it, your time to eat the most is postworkout. You could do like me and make up a big thing of scrambled eggs (through in whatever you like, I put a lot of spinach in mine) and bacon on Sunday. Then I just divi it up and eat that throughout the week post workout. That will greatly help recovery and give your body the fuel it requires to attack the day.

Just my .02 cents

Re: The Richie Glanzer "Diet"

I'll just copy what I wrote in the other post:


3 things you have to do:

1. Reduce your calories to lose 1 lb per week. Best to use a program like MyFitnessPal to track your calories.
2. Strength train 3-4 times a week.
3. 30-40% of your food should be protein. The rest doesn't really matter.

It really is that simple. When on a cut, don't overtrain. Workout 3-4 days a week with high intensity and rest the other days.

Re: The Richie Glanzer "Diet"

You say you can't go too crazy on diet yet you want things to change? That's not going to work. Bottom line, cut the 2-3 days of desserts and eat healthy every day, including Sundays and you'll be good.
You're trying to eat healthy, but you're ruining your diet 4 days a week. A day every week filled with beer, pizza, pasta, cupcakes, whatever else is a good way to kill all progress you made that week.
Decide if seriously watching your diet is worth the trouble to you and if so, do it. If not, then learn to be okay with the state you're in.
