fuck them. I am having a hell of a time getting the numbers down for them.
whole wheat bread, pasta, and rice
I eat these. Today I had a clifs builders bar (30g c), kashi cereal (30g c), 1 cup skim (12 g c), 15 crackers w/tuna (22 g carbs), sushi rice (60 g c ), PowerBar (42g c )
I plan on having 2 c skim with 2 scoops whey and some brown rice this evening, which will come to something like 260 or so grams. fuck.
I thought the title said crabs...lol...
how many are you going for?
I'd like to be at 200 or less. Trying to get body fat % down.
I think I'll cut out the powerbar which I didn't realize was so high when I bought them and convert the afternoon snack into higher protein, low carb (maybe another can of tuna?)
The only things you can drink are water, green tea, tea, some coffee and small amounts of Crystal Light.
DO NOT use gum, not even sugar-free gum since each piece has 2g of carbs.
BTW, I forgot to mention that the only condiments/flavoring you can use are:
No sauces, ketchup, mustard, etc.
lost 45lbs on chicken tenderloins from costco on the foreman with salsa and salad every night.... protein shakes for lunch (w/ water) and w/ half turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, and for breakfast, 3egg white and one egg omelet and 3/4 cup kashi go lean in 1/4-1/2 cup skim.... had protein shake first thing in morning and after workout.... cut hard like that for 3 months, lost 45 lbs, 8 inches on waist, went from 24 to 7% body fat and lost neglegable strength....
24% to 7% bf in 3 months? impressive...
As you begin this transformation process, I want you to become hyper-aware of the people around you. It's often said that we are a combination of the five people that surround us most. I think there's a lot of truth to this.
In short, hang around failures and they'll rub off on you. Hang around achievers and the same thing will happen. One study I recall looked at dozens of different factors: socioeconomic status, education level, ethnic background, etc. What they found was that success or failure depended much more on the type of people who surrounded you than any of those other factors.
So, assignment #1: Look at the people you surround yourself with. Look at them in the context of your physique goals and in the context of their attitudes toward success and achievement.
Are they "victims" who just can't get anything done because of the mean 'ol world keeping them from getting what they want?
Are they excuse makers?
What do their bodies look like?
Are they lifestyle saboteurs? In others words, do they eat, drink, and party themselves into fat balls of goo? Is that going to rub off on you? Are you willing to limit yourself socially from negative people?
Just look around, and think.
Assignment #2: Read this article about "Toxic People" if you haven't already:
Absorb it. Learn from it. Apply it.
How did you ever have energy?
And were there vegetables inthere?
Try not eating meat and getting your carbs low. I can't get mine below 250 no matter what I do.
so carbs turn into fat if they arn't burned?
when i cut, i usually get around 100g /day
I'm a vegetarian, chief.
And I have done it, and can do it, just have to concentrate.
ill find some.. no before after pics.... i did it for high school wrestling
not going to be the best comparison pics... and the pic im thinking of i will look like a tool...
Hmm..that's odd. I could have sworn in your meals you had posted tuna, chief.
i love bread and potatoes so this is really hard for me.
