Just Lean Meat & Vegetables - Good? (Not for Me)

Discussion in 'Dieting / Supplement Discussion' started by Deleted member 87037, Apr 25, 2008.

  1. My sister's boyfriend is going on some (what sounds to me retarded) weight-loss diet for 2 weeks of just lean meat and vegetables/fruits. That's it. Nothing else. He plans to do cardio and weights every day. He says he got this from Men's Health magazine. Is this BS? I would think he'd have to eat veggies/fruit excessively if that's his only carb as he'll be working out "intensely" for 2 weeks.

    I was eating somewhat similar to that. Except I had a bit more carbs for PWO. I would just eat some meats with spinach salad along with fruits.

    Haha.. I mean there are professional athletes who follow those diets. Arlovski says he doesn't touch carbs at all durning his training camp and thats a 6'3" 240lb guy who is training 4-5 hours a day 5-6 days a week.

    Tell him to get ready for boredom. I have been on a lean meat/fish/poultry/fruit/veggies (nothing processed) diet and it is boring as hell.

    I get full but never satisfied. I've only been on it for a week too!

    I'd say thats probably the best way to eat for the majority of people, and especially fat people. Too bad its so damn hard.

    This is true. It is pretty hard to stick to. I did it for a few weeks and I was quickly getting bored of it.

    That sounds like a quick hit diet just for losing weight. I'd turn into a serial killer if I wasn't getting any fat.

    this is how i eat as well most of the time, especially if i'm trying to cut some body fat. i do usually have a cheat day a week where i have something "bad" but i usually don't go overboard.

    OH! IO!
    I really enjoy my 8oz. lean ground beef + 2 cups broccoli + 2 Tbs olive oil as my staple meal, but it does get old.

    I guess it's the wings and beer that help keep me sane.

    dope album in your AV!

    about the diet... I did it for 1 week with vigorous exercise and I lost 3 #s. It made my stomach feel wierd and my shit stink like. well.... SHIT! I did get the gains I wanted from 7 days on that type of diet. Other than meat and stirfry veggies I kept eating a spinach salad with olives, onions, pepercinnis, bell pepper, broccolli, carrots and snow peas with a 1g carb salad dressing, Damn that shit was delicious!

    It was between that, Mood Muzik 3, or The Cool. :icon_chee

    Personally, I thrive on a low carb diet (I am also overweight, however). I've never felt as good as I do when I am eating a high protein/moderate fat/low carb diet.
