this great blue world of ours seems a house of leaves, moments before the wind
1. Clarence Bass's Ripped series and newer. Note: while some of the info is outdated with newer science, and some of his literature isn't quite straight forward, his main message is solid. And I can honestly say that is what I have based everything I've done over the years on. The main message is that you need to have a long term approach that keeps you satisfied.
2. The warrior diet. Its not exactly based on science at the time he wrote it, but some of it has eventually been backed on science.
3. The anything goes diet by John Barbon.
4. Eat Stop Eat by Brad Pilon.
5. How much protein? by Brad Pilon.
6. Some of the stuff from Rusty Moore's website that has to do with fast fat loss.
Notes from me:
To give you a summary of what I have come up with, its a plan that is highly satisfying, highly flexible plan that definitely works.
1. You must have a sustainable plan that is satisfying and flexible enough to work anywhere and with your life style.
2. Calories are king when it comes to fat loss. So if weight is an issue, it won't matter what, when, or how often you eat as long as the calories are taken care of.
3. Fast fat loss can be better if you're overweight, because nobody wants to cut for a very long period of time. And no, it isn't going to make you're muscles melt off.
4. Being leaner is healthier, even if you aren't eating the best foods.
5. Considering point #4, and with all else being equal, paleo will be the more healthy way to go. In other words, when it comes to health, calories trumps good foods vs bad foods, but good foods vs bad foods still counts.
6. Considering the above points, there are foods that make fat loss easier, because they are more satisfying and lower in calories. Let's be real. You'd be much better off with a meal of fish and oranges vs bacon and ice cream. You do the math!
1. Wheat Belly
*lots of science, not too technical, plus the doctor's own experiences
2. Good Calories, Bad Calories
*packed with SO MUCH SCIENCE, it's AWESOME!!!!
Both are a must read!!!!
I really enjoyed 'the paleo solution' by Robb Wolf and 'It starts with food' by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig. I am reading PB now.
If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.
Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."
Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for -- the pure enjoyment of food.” Anthony Bourdain
and yes, calories DO count my little piggies
