    Got my meals worked out for the most part for my 3 moderate carb days. Here's what they'll look like:

    5am (meal 1 preworkout): my protein smoothie:
    1/2 cup oats
    1 scoop protein powder
    1/2 cup 1% milkfat cottage cheese
    1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
    3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
    1/2 cup liquid egg whites
    tbsp instant coffee
    tbsp cacao powder
    3 packets stevia
    2 tsp natty PB
    1 cup crushed ice

    66g protein, 38g carbs, 13g fat

    8am (pwo shake)
    1 scoop ON Pro Complex
    1 scoop ON Casein
    1/2 cup oats

    61g protein, 26g carbs, 4g fat

    11am (meal 2)
    8oz 95/5 lean ground beef
    1oz (dry) Barilla Plus pasta
    1/2 cup tomato sauce

    56g protein, 29g carbs, 16g fat

    3pm (meal 3)
    2.5 cups liquid egg whites
    1 cup unsweetened almond milk
    3 fish oil caps

    62g protein, 12g carbs, 6.5g fat

    7pm (meal 4)
    2 whole large eggs
    1 cup liquid egg whites
    3 slices lean Canadian bacon
    3 fish oil caps

    47g protein, 5g carbs, 14.5g fat

    Totals: 290g protein, 110g carbs, 58g fat - 2091 calories

    Veggies will come mainly by way of juicing and/or smoothies in the latter part of the day.

    This is what I'll start with and adjust as needed. Remember that this is only for 3 of 7 days. My 3 no-carb days will look similar to this but the starchy carbs will be dropped all together. As a result, some food choices will change (pasta + meat sauce for example). I'll be around 1600 calories/day for those 3 depletion days.

    Subscribed buddy!

    Looking forward to seeing your progress.

    Like your egg protein powder substitute.

    Q: I have read that if you don't cook your eggs/egg whites that you don't absorb all the protein vs cooked. Is there any truth behind this?

    It is true that the protein in cooked eggs is more bioavailable than that of raw eggs. This is a result of something found in eggs called Avidin. Basically, it binds to some of the protein making it unavailable for usage. Cooking eggs destroys avidin.

    Now keep in mind that liquid egg whites are liquid, but not raw - they're pasteurized, meaning they've been heated to kill salmonella and other bacteria (same as milk). I've researched this pretty extensively, and to the best of my findings, the pasteurization process heats the egg up enough to destroy the avidin, thereby making it's protein content nearly 100% bioavailable.

    What's with all the fuss about Krave cereal?!? I've never tried it. Is it really as good as everyone makes it out to be? I'm a cereal monster so maybe it's best never trying it lol. I could eat a whole box no problem.

    I love the idea of just buying the "raw materials," I.E. chicken breast, egg whites, oats, etc. that you will eat and making it all fit into your plan. Seems so much easier than shopping for ingredients for meals.

    lol, thanks man, I tried! To be honest, I was surprised to find that I really wasn't in the mood to binge. I had a few good meals, but it felt more like a task, something I wanted to get over with, rather than something I was enjoying. I guess that's a good thing. I'm realizing that I want to eat the foods I want to eat WHEN I want to eat them (which won't work with this lifestyle). Setting aside a day or two to 'cram it all in' isn't very pleasant. Then again, it's not like I was coming off a cut or carbless diet. We'll see if I still feel this way after a few weeks of cutting!

    Day 1

    Woke up, feeling kinda tired, it was very easy to get used to sleeping an extra two hours even though it was only a week... feels like a month!!! Had my preworkout meal (GB's protein smoothie), showered and get er' done!

    Chest and Back

    Decline Dumbbell Press: 4x8
    Set 1: 110lbs x 9
    Set 2: 110lbs x 8
    Set 3: 100lbs x 8
    Set 4: 100lbs x 8

    Flat Dumbbell Fly: 4x8
    Set 1: 60lbs x 8
    Set 2: 60lbs x 8
    Set 3: 60lbs x 8
    Set 4: 60lbs x 8

    Superset

    Pullups: 3 x failure
    Set 1: bodyweight x 10
    Set 2: bodyweight x 6
    Set 3: +50lbs weight assist x 8

    (Such a fat bastard these days, I can barely do pullups. What's nice is that as I drop weight, i'll increase my reps dramatically and will likely start adding weight again

    Decline Dumbbell Pullover: 3x12
    Set 1: 100lbs x 12
    Set 2: 100lbs x 12
    Set 3: 90lbs x 12

    Superset

    V-bar chins: 3x8
    Set 1: bodyweight x 8
    Set 2: bodyweight x 8
    Set 3: bodyweight x 8

    One Arm Dumbbell Row: 3x12
    Set 1: 80lbs x 12/12
    Set 2: 80lbs x 12/12
    Set 3: 75lbs x 12/12

    Felt very nauseous after my workout. Possibly hit it too hard after a week off... it's amazing how quickly your body adjusts to resting!

    Was only able to get in 30 mins of cardio (supposed to do 45) due to time constraints. I need to get my workout done in a shorter time. This is a good challenge because it means shorter rests and therefore, a more cardio-intensive environment.

    Kept cardio light today until I get back into the swing of doing it (it's been MONTHS... can't remember the last time I did it). 15 mins walk on the treadmill 4.0 with a 4.0 incline. 15 mins on the elliptical. Done!

    Had my pwo shake (1 scoop ON casein, 1 scoop ON Pro Complex and 1/2 cup oats) and looking forward to feeling 'cleansed' over the next several days, particularly during my no-carb days. I'm feeling very bloated and uncomfortable right now.

    If I take more than a few days off with cardio, I feel it. Two weeks, and it really starts to suck! I try not to think about the fact that if I want to stay healthy, I need to do it for the rest of my life. Cardio is NOT my favorite activity!

    Love that you add oats to your shake. I do that too, I really think it helps digestion and better absorption of the protein.

    Yea, been doing it for years now. I don't know that it helps with digestion, but at the very least you'll get some insulin circulating.

    LOL on the pull ups. i had to read it twice to understand. it did not occur to me at first u actually needed assistance with doing them on the 4th set! i also had a hard time understanding the 3rd set u could only do 6 reps! LOL.. u havent been doing them this whole time or have u actually lost reps as u gained weight?

    id also like to note pull ups used to be my weakest exercise. i could only do like 3 of em! now i can probably do 25-30..

    Both. I haven't done em' in a while (been favoring lat pulldown which is admittedly a somewhat less effective exercise IMO), AND naturally, I lose reps as my weight increases. When I'm down around 190 or so, I can bang em' out no problem. It's also a matter of getting used to the movement again. I guarantee you by next week I'll already be much better.

    Hadn't thought about it... but that's a damn good idea! I don't want to post em' now because it's embarrassing... but if I post em' at the end i'll already be shredded (God willing) and it won't matter. Great idea bro, I think I will do just that.

    Good news is, it only gets easier from here. It's sort of like a detox.

    Drink green tea till your little hearts content. It'll keep you busy peeing so you won't have time to think about food! tetley makes so many good flavours... I'm addicted.. These are my favourites.. But I feel ya on the hunger, it sucks. BUT, you'll look shredded as hell which will make it all worth it
