The strongest I have ever felt was on a fruitarian diet. I was lighter, faster, and could just keep pushing myself. Last nights run had me feeling heavy, slow, and weak. I know that the fruitarian diet is great for me, but it is pretty expensive and rather boring.
I am moving to Lexington in the next few days and will be starting a new diet when I get down there. This time, I am basing my diet off of a P90X buddy of mine, Lou Trentadue. He focuses on eating "clean". While that is a pretty subjective term, we can mostly all agree that a piece of grilled chicken is cleaner than a piece of fried chicken. With that in mind, this is what I want to do.
The PlanAll meals are going to focus on balance of the plate. It's as simple as 1/3 meat, 1/3 veggies, and 1/3 fruit. I am going to try to cut out starchy carbohydrates and focus on the mentioned 3 food groups for my energy sources. I also am going to cut out as much dairy(other than eggs) as possible.
What Do I Think Will Happen?
I am still a firm believer that in order to lose weight, you need to put less calories into your body than you use. With that being said, I think I will lose body fat but still appear normal. I will be able to go out and eat at normal restaurants. Since this is possible, I think I will be able to stick to it a little better than my past diets.
That's all I got for now. More thoughts on this later.
