Jomad!

Due to the high lactose content of a GOMAD supplementation I have developed an alternative:

JOMAD

6 Eggs, 500g Greek Style (10%) Yoghurt, 1 tin Coconut Milk, 50g Protein Powder.

Approx Nutritional Info:

2000 kCal, 100g Protien, 50g Carbs. (45g Sugar), 160g Fat (100g Sat.).

Approx Macronutrient Ratios (Calories From):

20% Protien, 10% Carbs., 70% Fat.

Nothing compares to GOMAD but this offers similar levels of cals, protein and sat fats, obviously less carbs which will be detrimental to it's weight gain induction potential. The cost is around the same at 3.50/day.

One benefit is the decreased volume, coming in at around 2 pints for the food, water will be needed so about 4 pints estimate, instead of 8 pints in GOMAD.

I would like to hear your critiques, questions, thoughts and burns.

Re: Jomad!

Sounds fine, as long as it's a supplement and not replacing your existing eating.

Re: Jomad!

Great Idea!

I have been thinking about something like this to add extra calories for the day. For my goals, I won't need all 2000 in a day, but I plan on spreading it out over 4 days.

Fat in excess of immediate requirements is stored as body fat and diets high in saturated fat raise total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol so although this is undoubtably an easy way to increase your calorie intake it'll just make you fat and increase your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Greek yoghurt, canned coconut milk and protein powder aren't paleo.

Unless you're eating something that is 10k+ years old it's not paleo. The sooner people figure that out the sooner people can shut up.

I agree with the general guidelines given by the AIS but I'd recommend eating whole foods in place of all the processed foods they recommend.

Get your blood work done, then go on a all fat/protein diet, get your blood work done again then delete your post above so it doesn't mislead anybody else.
