    wife wants to do another run of the south beach diet since it helped us lose some weight in the past. i told her i wasnt going to do it with her but i would "diet" with her if she'll make my other meals. :mamoru:

    this is my "cutting" diet, courtesy Arch/super lurker/ex-F&N mod/largest Azn evar

    meail 1
    6 oz chicken or turkey boob (or 95% lean ground beef)
    6 egg whites
    1/2 cup oatmeal (before cooking)
    1/2 grapefruit

    meal 2
    protein drink

    meal 3
    10 oz chicken
    1/2 cup oatmeal or 6 oz sweet potato or 3/4 cup brown rice
    1 cup veggies

    meal 4
    10 oz chicken or turkey
    2 cup veggies

    meal 5
    protein drink

    post workout
    shake + 1/2 banana

    meal 6
    12 oz fish (talapia or similar) or 10 oz chicken or lean beefs
    1/2 box frozen spinach or 1 cup veggies

    monday or thursday, 7th meal
    1 1/2 cup oatmeal or cooked rice, 10 oz sweet potato, 6 oz banana, 1 cup veggies, 1 tbsp butter at end of day



    i havent looked at her South Beach menu but it's possible i can eat what she's eating and add some proteins in here and there.

    /random

    any of you guys ever do south beach while working out/cutting/bulking?

    Been using the SB diet cookbooks for some good stuff. In general the phase 1 recipes are good for a low carb approach.

    Be careful because I don't think all of the recipes are tasted before they end up in the book.

    d'oh, im not going to follow his portions exactly. he's got ALOT more muscle mass than i do.

    i'm going to stick to @ 75% of those portions and tweak it based on results week by week
