High Testosterone And Primal Blueprint's Insane Amount Of Vegetables
Hello, I am a testosterone junkie. I feel best when I get lots of sunlight, a vegetable/berry smoothie in the morning, 4 tbsp of oil throughout the day and 60mg of zinc on an empty stomach before bed...where I sleep for 10 hours. This makes my skin drip with high T!!!!
I've been reading mark's blog, and I've decided to try his diet and start counting calories. In the past I have eaten based on feel and would like some confirmation that this calorie breakdown is what Primal Blueprint Nutrition is all about. That way I can try it and decide whether or not it feels good, and whether to continue.
Please take a look:
2500 Calorie/Day Diet
100g carbs from broccoli, kale, swiss chard, brussels sprouts (400 calories)
130g protein from g.f.beef, liver, eggs, fish, shellfish (520 calories)
176g fat from the meat above, coconut oil, olive oil, butter, marrow, avocado, cheese (1580 calories)
If I split this up into 6 meals/day, for each meal that is 17 grams carbs, 22 grams protein, 29 grams fat.
Based on [url=http://nutritiondata.self.com/]Nutrition facts, calories in food, labels, nutritional information and analysis – NutritionData.com[/url], to get 17g of carbs from green vegetables I would need, for example, 100g of kale which yields 10g of carbs, and I would need an additional 100g of broccoli which yields 7g of carbs. That's approximately 4 large leaves of kale and about 10 broccoli florets for just one meal.
That is an INSANE amount of vegetable to eat six times a day!!!!!!! I would like some comments about whether these are the correct calculations according to the Primal Blueprint diet. Please comment.
I have also read that eating lots of fiber inhibits zinc absorption. Any other high T freaks and zinc supplementers discover any effects of the enormous amount of fiber and their zinc and T levels?
