  4. Starting a new thread because I am no longer on a juice fast. I will be doing this all from home, that is why I am am repeating many of the same workouts, and also why I can't do much for legs besides body weight and some plates. Feel free to critique my plan, and give me motivation haha I will update with pictures eventually. Starting Information: Age:20 Weight: ~ 172 lbs Height: ~ 5'8.5 - 5'9 Workout Routine: [ First week is 4x8, then the following week will be 5x5, then 3x12 ] Mon: Dips, Bent Over Rows, Leg Lifts, EZ-Curls, Shrugs, Squat ( Variation ) Wed: Push-ups, Dumbbell Rows, Military Press, Tricep Extensions, Dumbbell Side Bends, Lunges Fri: Dips, Bent Over Rows, Lateral Raises, Planks, Hammer Curls, Lunges Cardio Routine: Ideally I will be doing HIIT on my off days, as long as my recovery process is not effected to much by it.

Rice, rice, rice, rice, pasta, rice, potatoes, fruits and veggies... more rice. Goal: Reach single digit body fat percentage for the first time in my life ( except when I blew past it as a child lol )
  5. There is science for a lot of things out there and all these scientists and their followers claim to have it right. Paleo, Zone, 811, Atkins, Raw Food, South Beach etc. etc. etc. - and we can't know who's right. It really is kind of amusing but it gets plain annoying when the followers of one of these or another diet get opinionated and zealous about their diet and trying to defend their chosen diet with everything they have. Someone is posting a link to a study that seems to support Paleo, then someone replies with a link to a study that seems to support 811 and it's always the same merry-go-round. I have nothing against anyone who eats paleo / primal / vegetarian etc. its there choice... However... Paleo / Primal is proven to cause health problems... huge health problems. So we can just throw all that junk out. So now were left with vegan. So were discussing which diet is best... High fat, Carb, or Protein or a mix. Dr.McDougall promotes high carb low fat. There is much evidence and science out there to show this is overall the best lifestyle eating plan out there. Now I'm talking TRUE evidence and science, not speculation, biased studies, bro-science etc. History proves it, modern science proves it although modern man tends to hide it.
  6. Yeah. Well what I think HorseSense is saying is the science is there. Our bodys run off carbs, and it does best with high carbs low fat. Whether we "feel" it or not is relative. Because like you said, you don't feel right with all the fruit in you. So many factors can go into this... You are right though, he does say make the meal based around a starch, and have unlimited amounts of fruits, veggies, nuts etc etc. P.S. Legumes are starches.
  7. Wednesday Workout 4x8 on all excercises Push-ups DB Rows : 35 lbs Military Press : 30 lbs Tricep Extensions : 20 lbs DB Side Bends : 35 lbs I'm weak right now... but I'm also cutting weight, and doing these workouts in a fasted state. Now I'm off to go get some grub, cheers. Edit: Being its the 4th of July, I'm not even going to mention what I ate. Although I am lucky my church are Adventists and we follow a vegan diet, so the party I went to wasn't to bad. Definitely some junk vegan food that I indulged in lol.
  8. I did 4 today...I was just stretching real fast lol. 70,404 total
  9. How many times should we be working out abs out in week ? Do they need just as much time as the rest of the body to recover ?
  10. Today I ate... 1 cup of steamed white rice + half a large onion, cabbage, garlic and carrots heated + steamed in some water on the stove. 3/4 lb of pasta + 1 can of diced tomato and 3/4 a can of black olives. No oill + no added sodium. Oddly enough, I feel so so so so much better eating more simple. High Carbs + low fat, no oil and low sodium, has me full of energy all throughout the day and I am very clear minded.... I'm losing weight + seeing more definition in my body due to getting the sodium out.
  11. Yeah that's the one I'm doing. 16 hours fasting, 8 hour eating window. Have you done I.F. before ?
  12. Okay, so I dropped the fast and picked up something new. Here is my new plan. Intermittent fasting + high carb low fat diet. ( cooked ) I will not be using any oils or added sodium, and the main parts of my meals will be starches. Saturdays will be my cheat days because we have a large potluck after church and I would hate to miss out . This has to be something I can continue to do, so the cheat day should help. Intermittent fasting from 8pm to 12pm the following day, or 9pm to 1pm the following day. Before I break the fast I will do cardio and lifting, followed by a meal that is ~ 60% the calories I need for the day, then a meal or two later on in the day before 8 or 9.
  13. Good advice on the ketchup. Tomato sauce is a good idea, it goes well with everything... just like KETCHUP lol. So ill try that out. I'm going to continue with starch based meals and see how it works out. I know i feel great... Also I am trying to cut out all oils and fake butters and all that, which is a lot easier then i thought. I tend to be using heaps more veggie broth though.
  14. For anyone who knows about Dr.McDougall and his diet, what are your opinions ? I have been eating high amounts of starch lately ( ex: potatoes + rice ) along side of veggies and fruit. I have been having tons of energy and i feel great, clearer mind actually. Also, I have not gained a pound, I would say I'm losing weight while being satisfied after every meal.
  15. So... I know HIIT can be used with any type of cardio. My question is, what type of HIIT worked / works best for you ? Jogging then sprinting ? Jump roping slow then fast ? I'm going to be starting some HIIT tonight and I need some ideas.
