  • Rate my diet please.

    Firstly, some might already know, but I have a very small build for a guy - 5ft4 and weigh just 112lbs (due to illnesses in the past) and I am slowly putting on muscle again after a hellish 8 years. I am battling ME so my exercise is very very sporadic.

    Be very grateful if you could give me your opinions on my diet. I don't care about taste, so ignore the fact that it doesn't look appealing, I eat for fuel only and I have to be careful what I eat because I am currently beating Ulcerative Colitis by only eating what I am eating. I am trying to put on muscle mass without gaining fat - it seems to be working well.

    Upon waking: Squats followed by Glutamine and BCAA powder in a pint of water

    12pm- Tomato soup (double concentrated tomato paste, butter, salt)

    2:30pm- Tomato soup

    WORKOUT (if I have any spare energy, sometimes can't move lol)

    5pm- Chicken or Salmon, eggs, green vegetables and butter

    7:30pm- Same as above.

    Before Bed- Gouda (cheese) 100grams

    I have a total of 250grams of butter a day haha, doctors would be angry at me

    Why the tomato soup? Seems like you could use more substantial food in the earlier meals, especially if you're lacking energy in the afternoon.

      The tomato paste masks the butter taste - I just use it as a vessel to get lots of calories in me. I have about 60g of butter in each soup so its pretty calorific lol.

      I forgot to say I add a medium sized sweet potato to my evening meals on days that I manage to exercise hard. I also add some bcaa's to the soup sometimes to make it more anabolic.

        Do you have something against beef? I think you aren't eating enough beef.

          If it's working well, then keep it up. If you gut gives you problems with certain foods, and this way of eating helps you feel good, then why change?

              I'm not too fond of this diet. Chicken, btw, isn't that good for you. And unless the Salmon is wild caught and sourced well then it's in the same boat as the chicken.

              You need to add good quality beef and perhaps a salad here and there with some good quality EVOO.

                Do you HAVE to eat five times a day? Seems like a holdover from CW that you're holding onto. Nmany people here eat only twice a day in a six hour block. I myself eat only once a day on most days. All of my calories in one single meal that is ingested slowly over a four hour period.

                The CW folks think I am nuts, but I say I feel great eating this way, so fuck 'em.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                  Too little protein, all that fat isn't going to help if you don't get more protein to help you bulk up.

                    I can't digest red meat very well which is why I eat the chicken, it is free range and organic and the salmon is alaskan sockeye. I do eat a LOT of raw argentinian beef liver (it's in powder form and doesn't give me digestion problems).

                    I can't eat just twice a day because the sheer volume of calories in one sitting gives my gut HELL.

                    Nobody seems to be saying that eating 250g of grass fed butter a day will give me problems, that is still my main worry. I know consumption of saturated fat doesn't cause heart problems... but I am definitely testing that theory with full force and worry sometimes; what if I am wrong and there is way too much cholesterol in my blood?

                      Don't worry about the butter. I have that much (250ml) heavy cream in my coffee every day + dietary fat and added butter. Can you handle potatoes? Potatoes can suck up a ton of butter. Cauliflower also mashes well with potatoes and butter. Chopped spinach also reduces a ton when cooked so you can get a large amount in a small serving.

                      Sounds like you'd benefit from some home made soups - making your own bone broth and such.

                        I do eat potatoes/sweet potatoes but try to limit them as much as possible as starch feeds pathogens in the gut, and I don't wanna bring ulcerative colitis back. I will definitely try using more vegetables though such as cauliflower to disguise the butter.

                        Thanks

                          Mark posted recently about pre-biotic foods helping to promote certain gut bacteria that help with breaking down fats. Things like onions and garlic - perhaps you could also try chicken liver instead of powdered livers and cook it with lots of onions, garlic and butter. Another idea would be to try making your own liver pate's (liver, butter).. or perhaps pemican (dehydrated lean beef + rendered fat). http://www.marksdailyapple.com/how-t...#axzz2NKmpECln

                          Good luck

                            Free range and organic don't a healthy chicken make.

                            99% of chickens, unless you know exactly where it came from, eat corn and soy all day.
