    That is great information, but it is only one day. Was there some exercise associated with this?

    There is no good fat in there and very few greens.

    With dinner or as a snack have a huge salad with just veggies and a little olive oil. Snack on a few almonds.

    Don't be scared of fat. Without fat those delicious human brains get all dumbded up and no taste good no more.

    Also, to jump off of what the fine gentleman above me said, you should post what you ate in a week to get a fuller sense. But, according to my little calorie app, you consumed about 1,200 calories. Which would be good if you sat on a couch all day but crap if you moved, let alone exercise.

    Thanks Munch, that was where I was going, but I wanted to see more than one day first (along with the exercise) but your advice was where I was going.

    Lessee:

    Need to be more like this:

    food_20070729.jpg

    You didn't do what I told you. You didn't calculate the composition via metroplexfitness.net, the USDA SR 22 database, or another method.

    You STILL need to work on attention to detail, staying on task, and following instructions.

    Using the SR22 database, you can plot all common nutrients.

    As so often is the case for you:
    Too little...
    Too late...
    Lack of attention to detail...
    Lack of persistence...
    Lack of patience...
    Lack of information...

    Disclosure: metroplexfitness.net, and metroplexwebs.net are domains under the ownership of Metroplex Webs, one of the properties in which I have interest.

    Try again.

    This is going to be hard to stick to. Who the hell told you to eat like this? Haven't you been paying attention the last three years Chaser?

    Your BRAIN needs about 100 grams of carbs, PER DAY, to function right. You barely have enough here for brain function, much less supporting any level of active lifestyle.

    What were you thinking?

    Did you run the numbers?

    It's barely enough to be sedentary with. If you're wanting to get active, you're gonna' have to eat more than that. Just how it is.

    You can't starve yourself to fitness.

    The 3800 calories above for me...is a DIET day, for a CONTEST. It's a LOW CAL day.

    I don't know the gram weights here, but, I'm guessing there's not even close to even 2000 kcal here.

    Let's say you weigh 200 pounds. Let's say you're not active. That's still about 3000 kcal a day you need, just to keep from losing ground.

    Your breakfast is 12 grams of protein by 4...that 48 kcal...today, plus a tiny bit of carbs. That's stupid.

    For lunch, there's around 30-40 grams of carbs... and some protein from the chicken...wild guess...20 to 30g... so... 30 *4 = 120 KCAL + 30 *4 = 120. That's 240 calories for lunch.

    Now...remember...you don't weigh 200. You weigh much MORE.

    Now, I'm not trying to be mean here, but, don't you think these things through and run the numbers? Have you been paying attention? AT all?

    1 cup of brown rice is around 45 grams of carbs. You're barely eating enough to think straight.

    You can probably survive quite well on less. Pretend you're in a war torn banana republic where the government is so corrupt and out of control that there's no food to be had. Actually, that's not such a stretch even where you live. Pretend you're in a country that was already impovershed and got struck by an earthquake, and the last thing available to you to eat, your children, got kidnapped by christians from Idaho (home of Larry "I Am Not Gay" Craig) for sale on the child sex market and now you have nothing to eat but what you can scavenge from other people's turds, like little pieces of corn, etc.

    I am more than willing to donate my turd scavengings to the needy. Will send second-day air. I've been on a very high-fiber diet lately, so you may find them much more filling than the average turd scavenging. Varieties include: dry, hard, moist, and still warm.

    I submitted "turd scavenging" to Urban Dictionay icon_biggrin.gif

    turd scavenging

    noun: A turd scavenged for the express intent to be consumed as food.

    verb: I am turd scavenging for pieces of corn because I'm so very goddamn hungry and those darn baptists from Idaho have sold my food-children into prostitution.

    You can probably survive quite well on less than 500 calories a day by turd scavenging. Pretend you're in a war torn banana republic where the government is so corrupt and out of control that there's no food to be had. Actually, that's not such a stretch even where you live. Pretend you're in a country that was already impoverished and got struck by an earthquake, and the last thing available to you to eat, your children, got kidnapped by Christians from Idaho (home of Larry "I Am Not Gay" Craig) for sale on the child sex market and now you have nothing to eat but what you can scavenge from other people's turds, like little pieces of corn, etc.

    Thanks, McGay!

    That is great information, but it is only one day. Was there some exercise associated with this?


    Shoulders, back, and 12 minutes of what I believe was HIIT (30 secs. @ 1mph followed by 30 secs. @ 3-3.5 mph). Would've gone longer but I think one of my lungs was starting to collapse!
