Great to have you back! :) Sorry about all the issues lately, we have no idea what happened and we're working hard to "bounce back."

Team 200!

Thanks robert! Good to be back!

Richard- I've been on this diet (or a slight variation of it) for a little over 2 months now. Comments... suggestions?

Thanks Richard! and me too veggie princess... by chance I had copied and pasted my post (in html script) to Microsoft Word so I didn't have to put all the links back in... that would have been disastrous. Anyways, I've found that the food combining aspect of my diet is much too time consuming and is somewhat overwhelming to keep track of... I'm going back off the food combining principles and stick to having a carbs/protein/fat at each meal. I had to make an attempt to see if it was feasible. I will be editing the original post and try to incorporate more fruits and veggies and bit less grains, and a slightly modified ratio... I think that gives you two up on me! :oops:

The only food combining rule i follow is eat fruit alone or with a protein shake...

Other than that anything is fair game.

I'm pretty sure he has his eating program outlined in his training journal. He posted it at one time but that might have been when we lost all the info for that month.

Nice one Troy, you must spend a helluva lot on supplements though, I wouldn't even know where to find some of them in the UK.

So I did a cost analysis of everything I consume. These are max figures, meaning if I never miss a meal and based off of a 3300 total calories per day.

Caloric items (protein, veggies, fruits, grains, fat) = $165/week.
Supplements (vitamins, minerals, etc.) = $12/week.
Total = $177/week

Most items you can find on the net, not sure about the UK but you could inquire about shipping overseas, but may be cost prohibitive.
