    Default Protein only diet?

    6-8 servings of protein powder in water throughout the day for a week or so and additional water when feeling hungry. Pros/Cons? Discuss..... (No solid foods)

    its absolute torture and i have been very grumpy when i have experimented with. i tried the velocity diet from T-Nation , its pretty brutal



    its a great way to cut up before a big beach/shirt off day. not healthy, fun, or satisfying, but it worked for me.

    Not an eatting disorder, but rather a "fighters" way of dropping fat/excess weight. I just had to think about when I wrestled in high school the "diets" we'd be on to drop weight. I saw it again on a reality fight show and the person dropped 12lbs and got cut up in a week.

    However, I was thinking 6-8 shakes a day of casein protein, flax seeds for fiber, a few low carb green fiberous tidbits, and omega 3's for fats. That plus a crap load of water for a week. Workouts would be lower intensity cardio, and lower weight, higher rep lifts. Just toying with the idea, nothing in the werks just yet.

    sounds like the velocity diet to me, hahaahah.


    my body is to the point where in order for me to get really cut up/shredded, i have to resort to drastic measures (IE what you are toying with). my body has hit a state of equiliberium (sp), and i dont want to drop weight or gain it due to the weight class situation. its somewhat frustrating

    Actually the velocity made it look much more appealing. Also, I think I would only run it for a week or two. I am only interested in dropping the last 10lbs of fat so I can be semi-cut. If I go beyond 170, I'll look like a stick.

    Okay, so since I'm on a self imposed sabbatical, I figured I'd set this out and see how it could work. My plan for this "modified intake" is going to be something like....

    4-5 protein shakes (evopro whey/casien mix) a day in water, mixed with 5g L-Glut in atleast 3.
    About 2 gallons of water inaddition to this, possibly more like 3 gallons.
    Adding fresh greens as my carb source (spinach, broccolli, etc.)
    - No sissy ass iceberg lettuce ofcourse. I need some value carbs even going keto.
    Probably pick up some omega-3's for my fats as well.
    Will be continuing my Purple Wraath and White Flood. Green Mag is almost done (1-2 days max left) but will be adding Storm and SAN T3 in place.

    Will run this roughly a week and then re-evaluate effectiveness/mood/nutrition, etc.

    Cardio and reps will be increased.

    Overall, looking to cut about 1-2% bf or about ~5lbs in this week.
    If it works well, I may take a week off and then resume it the following week with the same goals.

    Probably going to shoot for a 50/40/10 split pro/fat/carbs and see how fucked I get.

    Thoughts? Improvements?? Suggestions???

    goodluck,



    i hate going keto, i get into such bad moods.

    didnt mind it when i wasnt dating a girl, but last week i hit the one week mark and my gf started getting pissed because i was "so tired and moody"





    i would consider maybe a fiber supplement or some flax meal to keep the pipes running swimmingly

    I'll look into it, but was hoping the greens would do their job in that regard. That was my main concern though was backage. This will be my first shot at keto cutting, so it'll be a learning experience in both body effect and mood change. I'm actually getting hyped for it so we'll see. If the energy is too lacking, I might have to re-evaluate mid-course.

    Nah, wasn't running it long enough to warrant one until I finished.

    End results were loss of 4lbs and ~1% BF. Not great but interesting to see. I saw more definition in my abs, though my obliques apparently need work. I felt like shit on days 1 and 2 but after that I was actually quite "chipper". Energy was good after the two days on zombieism. Will probably run it again but may wait till August to do so.

    Hmm.. sounds harsh, what about subbing the shakes for something like chicken or tuna at each meal instead? Maybe using food protein will give better results?

    The idea though is that a "liquid diet" is more quickly absorbed, processed and excreted out of the body than a solid food diet. It's alot like a diuretic effect and the reduced solid foods seems to allow the body to dispose of fat through urine and waste easier. That and it kept it easy to poop too when I had to. You could give it a whirl but it seemed to work on the short term like I was expecting. Also, food protein isn't as readily absorbed as say a shake, since the body has to break it down, digest it, and then absorb it. You'd lose more protein I feel this way that doing shakes. Plus for a guy at 180lbs, 270-360g of protein a day is a pain in the ass IMO. You almost get tired of intaking all that day by day.

    Default looking for a good diet

    Hi, I am looking for a good diet. One my friends said to eat low fat, high protein, good carbs, good fats and fruits. He said eat 3 meals and 3 snacks a day. I have already tried it but I'm at a standstill. I always have one to two meals of white rice a day. No one in the family is willing to by brown rice or cooks it. How much would eating that white rice affect the diet? Also because of my job it's difficult to find time to eat except for my lunch. Usually I only have 2 minutes to open my locker and grab something to eat. Please suggest me for an effective easy diet.
    I need some answer
