    Default Strongman Diet

    My sister got me a month of diet work with a lady as a gift. I had my meeting with her on Thurs and will be starting the diet Tues.
    Its crazy how much I need to eat and what I need to eat.

    Today I am a plump 305lbs
    short term goal is 30lbs
    Long term goal is 60lbs

    The overall goal it to lose the body fat and stay strong.

    I need to pick up some whey and a digestive enzyme.

    This getting healthy stuff is not cheap
    Touch the cow. Do it NOW!

    That's cool bob! I just read an article about meal planning. It talked a lot about spreading your total calories throughout the day in 3 hour intervals so that your body always has fuel on hand and your digestive system is never empty, keeping your metabolism up. Try to avoid processed foods as much as possible, and you already know to drink a ton of water.

    I'd guess you at about 3000 calories for a get strong and loose weight diet?

    Christmas party food doesnt count does it?

    Not sure what the cal intake is going to be. She has me on food types and amounts. This will give you an idea what my day will look like.

    Breakfast:
    8oz lemon water
    1/2c egg whites 2 whole eggs with spinach and two slices of whole wheat bread

    Snack 1-On lift train days:
    Eat an apple as a secluded snack then follow an hour or 1.5 hrs after with rest! - 1 apple - only on lift days / no fruit on non lift days

    1 .5 scoops whey - or 5 oz lean meat and
    2 c veggies any greens and
    1/3 avocado

    Lift day - add 1/2 c sweets potato or brown rice here

    Im 3 days into this thing.
    The worst part? Trying to get the timing down. I need to eat all day and some days, like yesterday, I wasnt able to eat my snack and got to lunch late. This caused me to be late in my afternoon snack and pre workout...
    The only other bad thing is the amount of $ I am now spending on food. Fruit and Veg go bad quick.

    This is also day 3 with no RedBull. Im feeling like I could rip the head off a lion if they told me it was full of RedBull.

    First week done. Down 8 lbs. Thats good and all but that just first week change up and my body can do that on any diet. Week 2 and 3 will be the key weeks to see if if I will keep going down in weight and make sure my lift # are going up

    My lifting numbers have been good. I have been moving up on some weight. Last night I was able to axle clean and press 275lbs. New PR for me.

    Keep it up Bob!

    Not a personal best (or worst) but I dropped 265 on my chest last week. It was not fun. No injuries, rep'ed out the next 2 sets no problem.
