I am back on my training diet, which I should actually stay on all the time! I am always looking out for new items to include that make eating more healthy and enjoyable. Two items that I recently tried are Hint drinking water (http://www.drinkhint.com/ ) and Alexia waffle cut sweet potatoes (http://alexiafoods.com/products/sweet-potatoes/waffle-cut-sweet-potato ). Both turned out to be great additions to my diet! What are some things that some of you have found that are healthy, tasty and great additions to your training diet?
Happy new Year to you as well! Your diet sounds good! For breakfast today I had a bowl of Fiber One cereal with almond milk. For a mid morning snack I had a few almonds. Today for lunch, I had a large salad and a turkey on whole wheat sandwich, with unsweetened tea to drink. I am basically looking at dropping some weight, while still holding on to the muscle. Therefore I will be drinking a couple of low to no fat protein drinks a day, along with all of the usual supplements that I take. I'm having fun with this!
Hello Iam doing the P90X and so far its not bad. I'm not very good with the no soda and drinking a gallon of water a day.I'm 250 now and would like to get to 220 by the summer. I have also heard bad things about cows milk I have to give the Almond mike a try. Anything else thats good to lose weight please let me know.
At the start of 2007 I was 210lbs at 5ft 9 that was way to heavy and I felt it. After some tests etc. it was found I had celiacs disease. Basically my body can't process the Gluten found in wheat etc. So when that was cut out of my diet, which ment no more white bread, fast food and other threats such a beer and candy I am now a healthier 168lbs. As it turned out cutting the above out was quite easy and my wife has done it to great effect as well (she can still have the odd cream cake do)
A daily menu for me at present:
Breakfast: Gluten free museli or Gluten free Porridge Oats(recently re intorduced)
Lunch: Grilled Chicken breast, Rice and Salad plus a Banana
Dinner: Last night my wives lovely Homemade Turkey curry and Rice
At present I don't really eat in between the above, but if I do it's usually more fruit or nuts. Thats said my training has recently pickup alot and will continue to do so, which means the above will have to change a bit as I would like to maintain my current weight but get fitter and stronger at the same tip.
I really look to the world class athlete, waterman and surfer Laird Hamilton for inspiration in this regard. If you don't know him, he's a completely ripped guy, aged 46, with incredible stamina who cross-trains in a huge variety of different sports.
He agrees with what others have noted, that drastic reduction of wheat and doughy products, especially those that are very refined (white flour, cake, rolls, pasta, cookies, etc.) can have great benefits if your goal is a high performance physique. I think his strong avoidance of what he sees as doughy, worthless junk calories in the form of bread products is a big part of why he's so ripped. This is not something I have followed very well but I do make some attempt to reduce my consumption of these and I believe he's right about the benefits and I would like to follow his recommendations more closely.
He notes that you shouldn't drink fruit juices in excess either since they are loaded with sugar.
The core item in his diet is salad with some kind of meat on top. This is the item which I always try to eat more of. Steak with a salad, fish salad, salad with chicken on top, etc.
He does see a lot of value in unprocessed and organic foods. I agree with that and eat a lot of organic type granola, cold processed food bars, etc.
He sees value in seaweed, algae, etc. I regularly take spirulina and chlorella for the trace minerals, vitamins and antioxidant benefits.
I have come to believe that sea salt is good and standard table salt is bad. Sea salt contains those trace minerals which are absent from much of the food we eat due to modern farming methods.
In the past I have often gotten great weight loss results by using a protein shake such as Spirutein as a meal or snack substitute. That's something I haven't used much lately but I think I will get some and start back on that as I would like to drop some pounds as well.
learning how to decipher these can do great things for your health
Tans fat should be less than 2% of total fat intake. US laws allow companies to label any ingredient under the amount of 1 gram to be listed as 0% as long as it is included in the ingredients listing of the product. Meaning an item can claim to be Trans Fat free and still contain trans fat under one gram per serving. Hydrogenated/ hydrolyzed or partially hydrogenated are the key words to look for. If these are listed you are consuming trans fats.
Serving sizes are also misleading, labels list nutrient values according to serving size but each serving size is dictated by each label. In many cases products which are not nutritious will shrink the serving size to lower the percentage of harmful nutrients fooling people into thinking the products are healthier. A good example are personal sized foods which are often listed as two servings on the food label though they are marketed as personal size products.
Staying away from processed foods is a good way to go.
Positive Energy Activates Constant Elevation
Re: the Almond milk, I do not advise the unflavored kind. The vanilla is pretty good but, I decided to try plain and YUCK! I never finished the half gallon carton. I do not drink cow milk but usually opt for unsweetened, unflavored soy milk. I know there is some conflicting research regarding soy but I like it and it's got to be better for me than the dairy variety.
happy new year all!
i am on the other side of the fence. i am constantly trying to keep weight on.
but the diet i follow is the same as someone trying to lose it.
i belive you should eat every 2 to 3 hours a good protien wich is anything that wags a tail swims
or has feathers.and a good carb wich is vegtables. and plenty of water. i hope this helps. oh and always eat 30 min. after waking.
I got some "Spirutein" protein powder and have been back on that as a meal/snack substitute. Some might not care for the taste but it is effective for me because it really cuts my hunger. Containing blue green algae, enzymes, etc. in addition to protein derived from rice, pea and soy, it's a healthy addition to the diet. And in practical terms, it supplies a lot of essential nutrients to keep you going if you are in the midst of reduced caloric intake.
Plus the chocolate taste is good blended with some water and ice.
I have tried many energy drinks but this is the one that has always worked for me for weight loss.
Plus it's basically a mild health drink, not an amped up bodybuilder or ultra-high performance formula, so I don't mind drinking it everyday or even multiple times in one day.
I only use about 1 and a half scoops at a time.
I'm sure some wouldn't like the taste or the effects of it, everyone's body's different. But it does work well for me.
