By POLAD I am of course talking about eating a Pound Of Lentils A Day. I'm unemployed, so I'm trying to figure out an economical way of getting a good amount of protein. I don't really like the idea of GOMAD, though, because of all the lactose. I'm trying to gain muscle while minimizing the amount of fat I gain. In any case, here's how POLAD compares to GOMAD: GOMAD with skim milk 1328 Calories 192 grams carbohydrates (all sugar) 128 grams protein POLAD 1600 Calories 272 gram carbs 16 grams sugar 144 grams fiber 112 grams protein So, any opinions on this? The pound of lentils would of course not be my sole source of protein, but it would account for the bulk of it. I will probably try doing this as an experiment, unless the consensus is that it is a terrible idea. Thanks for any input.
