Revisiting Diet Ideas

Since Merrill's Mile, I have been eating whatever I want. I also have not been running as much. So when I set out to run 7ish miles on very hilly terrain in high heat and humidity I had some issues! Luckily I know what is wrong and how to fix it.

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 Plan

All 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.

  2. Make sure the diet is for you, and you did not choose the diet because some commercial on TV or radio says that you can lose the weight without dieting or exercise. the big diabetes lie reviews
