Re: You must eat this much to play

I'm a female around the same size as you and I'm at around 1800 (I'm not as active). I cannot, for the life of me, understand women who choose to starve themselves to try and lose weight. And yet they always admire how *I* look? Oh yes, that's right, I work out Eat less to look good, work out to look good naked...

Don't get me started... part of the problem for women is a totally skewed view of what "look good naked" actually means. The female models in men's magazines look *totally* different from the ones in women's magazines.

Not to mention how different they look compared to real life after the pictures have been photoshopped.

Re: You must eat this much to play

On eating this much to play can I play while eating this much?

breakfast: 5 eggs
2 sausage links
1 banana
1/4 gallon of milk

Lunch: 1/2lbs turkey
15-20 shrimp
(all in a wheat tortilla wrap)
2tbs olive oil
1/8 gallon of milk

Post workout: 1/8 gallon of milk
1 scoop egg protein
1 scoop whey
two chicken wings off the stripped carcase of my chicken from yesterday.

Dinner: BK Triple Whopper with cheese
Small fries
small sweet tea

also ate about 3 tbs peanut butter somewhere in there.

Seem like a good amount?

Re: You must eat this much to play

It's a good start. You seem to slack off a bit toward the end of the day, though...

Your diet lacks vegetables.

Re: You must eat this much to play

Oh need to explain. Had extra dressing on the whopper. I stuff my wrap till it pretty much rips apart with spinach carrots and lettuce.

I am going to assume you were joking about slacking off at the end of the day :P I was still a tiny bit peckish after that whopper

Re: You must eat this much to play

How does everyone stomach eating this much? I have to force myself to eat at least 2000 cals. Any more and it makes me nauseous.

I'm 6'1 and approx. 235#. I CF 4 days a week and walk the dog 3-5 days a week for an hour at a time. My goal is loosing fat (don't know the % so I'll just say "too much"), getting stronger, and feeling better.

My typically day looks something like this:

**I don't do any kinda of Zone, just weighed the meat to see where I was. The only thing I try to do is keep my carbs under 75 grams a day**

Breakfast:

Couple eggs
Piece of Meat (~ 6 ounces)

Lunch:

Spinach Salad w/ olive oil or mixed veggies in olive oil
Pork Chop (~ 6 ounces)
1/2 Avocado

Post WOD:

Protein Shake

Dinner (At this point I have to force this down):

Some type of green veggies (Asparagus, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli)
Chicken Breast (~5 ounces)
1/2 Avocado

The puts me around:

2,000 Calories
126 grams fat (54%)
50 grams carb (10%)
180 grams protein (36%)

As I continue will my metabolism ramp up to where I will need more food?

Add more carbs then. If I try eating just protein and fat I feel full constantly and waste away to an emaciated little boy due to the lack of calories. Carbs are delicious and will help you pack in more calories
