the metabolic diet?
i saw one or two other threads on this but thought i'd start my own. my kettlebell trainer sent me a copy of the metabolic diet to look over. he knows i follow the primal lifestyle but thought i'd be interested. i'm reading over the metabolic plan and considering it...with my own special tweak on it. i've been upping my carb count through fruit, coconut pancakes, sweet potatoes/new potatoes etc on my heavy training days with fine results. i'm very active during the week - kettlebell training twice a week and bjj once to twice a week, lots of walking etc.
i don't agree with adding in foods/drinks with artificial sweetners to satisfy cravings during the low carb five day period - so that won't be happening. i am kinda worried that 30 g of carbs is going to be hard for me to adhere to but not impossible. i am worried that i'll be fatigued during my training though. i don't really see myself going that crazy on the weekends. i'd probably add back in lentils, garbanzos, some pita or tortillas, corn, a sandwich here and there (really miss those) maybe an occasional sweet treat on the weekends. there would definitely not be any processed/artificial food added back in.
has anyone else tried this?
i will maintain the truth
i knew naturally as a child
i won't forfeit my creativity
to a world that's all laid out for me
i'll look at everything around me
and i will vow to bear in mind
that all of this was just someone's idea
it could just as well be mine - ani difranco
