You have any more details on your diet? I know you said you did 811 for awhile, but what's your current setup?
Don't know if any progress is visible on the body, I actually want to increase the number of pull ups I can do. I think that I made better results in adding muscle mass by bodybuilding. As soon as I get back from Spain I'll stat again with the gym and BB. But I think adding some "real strength" can't do anything bad
I wonder if I will be able to work with bigger weights when I get back to gym.
As for the diet: I would call that semi-vegan. Typical day would look like this:
breakfast:10 bananas (or one big cantaloupe), or something else from fruit, big quantities
lunch: 150 g of dry and then cooked lentils, chickpeas or white beans. To that I add usually 150 g of whole grains: quinoa, buckwheat, rice, millet or whole wheat or kamut pasta. With some steamed greens: collard, swiss chard, broccoli, spinach. Sometimes I eat also steamed root vegetables: carrots, parsnips, burdock, red beet, etc. Also a fresh salad from lettuce, tomateos or what is in season. Sometimes I eat whole avocado. Usually I drown in tahini
as a condiment
dinner: same as lunch
late dinner: rolled oats (100 g) with some apple juice and seeds or good fats. (100 g): pumpkin, sunflower, coconut, walnuts, etc. When at home, I make often hemp milk, almond milk.
Why then I say it's semi-vegan diet? I eat sometimes a can of sardines (it has the highest level of B12 of any foods), or one organic free range chicken egg ( I love that, to be honest). When I'm at he seaside like now I eat some shrimps and mussels or any other kind of clams... I KNOW, IT'S NOT VEGAN
But I try to get such food out of my diet, too. It's like I eat a can of sardines ones in month or two months.
My personal belief is that 811 diet is the best, but for me in Serbia, living on a budget, in continental climate with cold winters and no fresh and cheap fruit for long time - it is not possible for more then few months.
BTW, I was looking for B12 pills here in Barcelona and they have only combination with other B vitamins and it cost like 15 dollars! I heard you people speaking how cheap B12 was... How much is it in USA? And which is the best brand? MAybe I can get some friends to bring me that from USA.
