    hey I am from 20-50 grams a day and after I finish off this tub of protein powder, and bag of walnuts i still like 2 pounds :/ i plan on going under 10 a day, mainly from eggs, and perhaps some cheese, or heavy cream. I am trying to gain some weight right now so my calories are pretty high, and the weight gain so far has been pretty much muscle :-) once spring break starts I plan on trying to loose about 10 pounds so my menu will change but this is it as of now:


    Breakfast:

    Always eggs anywhere from 3-6 with some meat tossed in, usually leftovers from the day before, plus 2 oz cheese


    Snack-protein and oil shake


    Lunch-usually 4 hard-boiled eggs, half avocado, and a can of tuna


    snack- 3-5oz walnuts


    dinner- usually three eggs+ a solid 1-2 pounds of meat with 2 oz cheese


    dessert-3 oz walnuts ground up mixed with protein powder and three eggs cooked into some funky mock oat-like dish


    That is about my menu everyday, and I pack around 3000-4500 calories, sometimes more like the other day I added a whole rotisserie chicken to that


    My workout is as follows:

    Monday: Lift heavy things-squat, bench, invert rows, push-ups, sit ups

    Tuesday: sprints

    Wednesday:-go on long walks, sometimes carrying dumbbells (if on treadmill), or a weighed backpack if outside

    Thursday:-lift heavy things-squat, overhead press, deadlift, pull-ups, planks

    Friday-kettlebells, bodyweight training, animal exercises

    Saturday-usually hiking, but whatever I feel like mainly doing. Usually a play day

    Sunday- I rest


    Once I start trying to loose weight I plan on doing it warrior diet style (20 hours fasting, 4 eating), and go carnivore.

    that diet will at least 1 gram protein for LBM, and the rest will be fat, and most likely calories will be slowly dropped to about 2000

    Thanks GrokinOut, good workout info too. Do you mind if I ask your height and weight? Just curious, helps put the meals/calories etc in perspective.

    ps, BarbeyGirl, really helpful. I see that you are eating extra fats (nuts, olive oil, avo, eggs) when you eat fish. Agree that fish by itself usually feels thin. Thanks!

    Also, the workouts people are posting look really great. Interesting to see how you all alternate your exercises.

    Yes, fish alone isn't filling enough for me. I'm actually thinking of those salads another way, though: I try to put three fats on a salad -- usually a meat/fish, olive oil, and something else (nuts, olives, avocado, whatever). A salad with fewer than 700 calories isn't worth eating.


    (No, it's not really about the calories!)

    My meals are about the same everyday just various types of meat and veggies.


    Breakfast: 5 eggs (sometimes bacon, sometimes mushrooms and peppers added)


    Lunch: Leftover meat and veggies (~1/2 pound of meat and either a salad or cooked veggies)


    Snacks: almonds, fruit, mixed berries, sharp cheddar cheese


    Dinner: Meat and veggies (sometimes a sweet potato) Meat size is at least 1/2 pound


    Workout schedule varies but usually contains 2 max strength workouts, 1 explosive/endurance workout, 1 sprint session, 1 5k for time and 2 rest days (maybe do yoga on 1 of the rest days)

    Thanks Arthur. Just out of curiosity, what kind of meat and veggies do you eat? What were your meals this week?

    Barbeygirl, awesome blog. Your progress inspires me. I know you don't worry too much about number of daily calories per day, but do you have estimates for your meails/daily? Do you eat until you're satisfied?


    Im aiming for fat loss, and I agree with the hight-fat-LC principles, but I still intuitively feel like I should restrict calories to keep losing weight.
