I may, if anyone is interested that is.  I do some creative things in the gym every now and then.

Any chance you could put down how much you consume of each item, Adonis?

Sure.  Usually its the serving size or so if its a packaged food.  If its a food I make, such as the Hamburgers, its going to vary with each thing I put on so I will just list the entire Burger rather than go ingredient by ingredient.

But for packaged food and the like I will surely include amounts.

not much protein being taken in it seems.

can you break down protein intake too ? in grams? also fats and carbs would be nice.

Sure thing.  I will do a few days with full Vitamin Nutrient and Macro Breakdown.  It changes every day of course but a sampling every now and then may be useful.

Just looking at yesterday, I would say about 100-120 grams of protein.

This number will always vary as well.

doesn't look like that to me. not complete protein sources anyway.

do you include all protein sources on labels, complete or not ?

Yeep.  I count all Protein.  The "incomplete" protein or "complementary protein" thing is a myth/misnomer and is completely discredited.

The very person who coined the phrase/theory has reversed on this as well as anyone who has backed it.

The myth is great to keep alive if you are in the protein selling business.  ;)

I always find it amusing how the magazine and supplement companies pull this nonsense.  This was discredited a long time ago, even by the originator of the theory, yet it still persists.

That trickles down to gym-goers and then it becomes "bro-science" or simply, pseudoscience.


It doesn`t stop there at all.  There are a ton of myths that circulate in the general public as well and most people accept as being credible even when the evidence is contradictory or proves the opposite of what is claimed .

Hopefully I will get into some of this as people ask more questions.

i pride myself on ignoring these broscience myths, and dealing with facts, but this is one i have believed for quite some time.

i have already read a few studies and i am surprised by the results.

the complete/incomplete protein recommendations do indeed appear to be a myth afterall  :o

saying that i wonder why taking in leucine alone pre/post workout does not have the same effect as a whole protein source.

every answer raises more questions it seems  :-\

Interesting.

What do you think about eating high glycemic index carbs in the PWO meal?

Do you think you can be ripped eating high glycemic index carbs all day, as long as you create a caloric deficit?

Thanks

complete protein is not a myth



try taking in 300 grams of protein everyday, but make it all coming from amino acids NOT in the essential amino acids list.

you will find it impossible to grow.




protein combination does work just fine, but are you sure your getting the right amount of the right amino's to make the incomplete protein useable??

let me make this simple for you and adonis... in order to build muscle, eat muscle..  there are eleven essential aamino acids that can not be created by the human body..  you must consume aquequate amounts of these...


its is not about grams of protein, but more specifically about grams of protein containing all eleven amino acids.


what do you think would happen if you consumed 500 grams of protein everyday but never consumed any branch chain amino acids ?  (this diet is very highly unlikely to ever occur but what would happen if it did)

the amount of muscle tissue in your body would start to slowly decline, regardless of any amount of other calories, drugs, or training

Totally irrelevant if you eat like a normal human being.  This is as silly as suggesting one eat nothing but cardboard, lightbulbs or jolly ranchers and nothing else.

By default you will easily get a complete amino profile, especially when your food is varied and you are shooting for a minimum of about .5 grams of protein per lb of bodyweight a day.

It varies everyday, but I get at least .5 grams per lb of bodyweight on average.  Most of the time I am much higher than that just by default of what I eat.

you said the idea of protein combination is a myth. it is not.

the idea that the general public needs to pay special attention to their diets in order to get enough essential amino acids is a myth.


the idea that a bodybuilder trying to gain muscle without eating foods that contain all of the essential amino acids would then have to make sure to be combining enough of the right types of foods in order to get enough of the key amino's to grow.... is not a myth.


sure, the amount is not that high.. but to get 1 gram per lb lean body weight of complete protein without eating complete protein is going to take some effort. 

bodybuilders or those looking for muscle are mmuch better off eating complete protien sources.. mainly meat.

Do you ever eat above 1 gram per lb of bodyweight? Don't you think eating .5 grams per lb some days is too little?

Yep, sometimes I will eat over that amount.

I do not believe .5 grams per lb is low for me by any means as I only lift weights 4-5 days a week and do not exert myself in any way other than that.

Also, studies have shown that seasoned bodybuilders/Weightlifters may need LESS protein as several studies have shown that strength training, consistent with the anabolic stimulus for protein synthesis it provides, actually increases the efficiency of use of protein, which reduces dietary protein requirements.

That's very interesting information from those studies, I never made gains while eating less than 1 gram per lb though. I tried it in the past and it didn't work.

I noticed you don't make sure you eat an "x" amount of protein per day and that your intake varies a lot, why is this?
Probably the days you eat .5 grams per lb or so are balanced out with the days you eat more than 1 gram per lb right?

Its very interesting to see you are able to stay ripped while eating anything you want. I never tried it, but I can see it being possible as overall calorie intake is what determines fat loss/gain or maintaining.
Do you think its possible to remain ripped and gain muscle at the same time? I think its not since caloric intake will vary too much.

Thanks.

By the way TA, I tried your Adonis tomato and tuna salad tonight. Very, very good.

I followed your recipe, with a few key notable changes to suit my tastes.

To the dressing, I added half a teaspoon each of cumin, chili powder, and cayenne powder to give the dressing some heat. I find the heat masked the can tuna smell nicely.

I was really hungry, so I decided to ditch the cous cous this time around, because it looked really good and I wanted to eat it right away.

I also added a teaspoon of dijon mustard to the dressing, to act as an emulsifier.

Finally, I added a cucumber to the mix.

Overall, a very tasty meal and one I won't hesitate to repeat.
Very Good my friend!

I eat it all the time without Cous Cous or Pasta.  I also play around with it a bit, infusing different herbs with the oil.

It is a completely enjoyable way to eat Tuna and so quick to throw together.

Boy, you live on total crap. People like you then show up to some doctor and expect to be cured by some drug or chemo when your body becomes diseased from all the toxic crap you put into your body. You're pathetic argument of how shit-food breaks down to the same macronutrients as healthful food is a delusion the Medical establishment peddles. Their drugs and surgery only treat the symptom of a disorder..not the root cause which is caused by eating nutritionally worthless foods like you ingest.

Any current pics of you to prove your theories? Without the evidence it is inconclusive, right?

I'm not knocking how you get to the finish line, totally up to you, but I wouldn't feel comfortable recommending a diet like that to any of my friends or workout partners. Maybe a few snacks here and there; cheat on weekends whatever, but man that ''diet'' doesn't seem like the best choice. Just my opinion no expert here

Wrong and you look like utter garbage.  I eat whatever I want whenever I want.  Other than Grilling burgers and making some Pasta, I haven`t been in the mood to create anything elaborate.

I`m busy playing Red Dead Redemption and do not want to be disturbed.


Also, did I mention that you look absolutely horrible?  Yes, Yes I do believe I did.

Furthermore, you have a problem with home-grown Tomatoes, home grown Garlic and Home Grown Lemon Basil and 12 year old Balsamic Vinegar?

Show me one health authority that would agree. To start, your diet is low in fiber, low in good fats, omega 3:6 ratio way too low, high in refined sugar and processed foods. It's low in fruits and vegetables. Science is just beginning to recognize the thousands of antioxidants and phytochemicals found in fruits, vegetables, and spices that you can't get from a pill or powder, stuff your diet just scratches the surface with.

Interesting you mention you feel lazy several times. My blood sugar would be out of wack following some of your concotions.

Adam - are you getting the protein requirements you've outlined previously?  I didn't look, but I thought your general baseline was 1 gram per 1b of BW, in addition to the few other guidelines.

Have you changed this assumption, or just not felt like eating it the past few days?

I try to get about .5 to 1 gram per lb of bodyweight.....Somewhere between there on average.  The Hamburgers I make for instance, from Bobby Flay`s cookbook, usually average around 50-70 grams of protein which is a great deal of my requirements so its rather easy to meet the rest.

I don't know much about you, but I am guessing you're working out during all this too, correct?

If so, you'll never actually gain muscle, just starve off bodyfat accumulation.  So i take it you're trying for the lean, more ripped look and less the more muscular look?

What happens when you wanna gain some size and put on some muscle?

I do gain muscle on this diet and am able to keep my strength much higher than traditional "bro-science" bullshit bodybuilding diets which I have also used in the distant past to the T. 

There is no reason why you should think otherwise.

I disagree that you're actually gaining any muscle tissue with the lack of protein, but to each his own.  If anything you're losing bf which is making you think you have gained muscle.

Has the ".5" always been part of the equation?   I thought it was a strict 1.
Yah .5 with 1 being the upper range, although if 1 is exceeded its completely fine.

I tend to be somewhere in the middle on average.  My training is 4 days a week with sometimes 5 (rarely) and no cardio.

My training is Heavy and sometimes pretty fast about 40-50 minutes.  Yesterday for instance I did Back which consisted of Pullups to 50 reps in which I started with a 45 lb weight hanging from me.

Then I went on to seated Cable Rows with a straight bar attatchment and did quadruple drop sets (4 sets of Drop Sets).  What I do is start with the heaviest possible weight I can lift for 2-4 reps and continue to drop until the end of the stack or stopping if it gets to easy. Each time to failure and not counting any reps.

I then went to a Hammer Strength High Pulldown Machine and did Quadruple drop sets on it as well, starting with my maximum weight.

Next week I will try starting at a higher Maximum weight and doing drop sets the same. (constant weight progression)

Just overall calories with a goal of getting .5 to 1 gram per lb of bodyweight.  My calories come from whatever I feel like eating or cooking.

I am about to make Kenny Shopsin`s Pumpkin Pancakes with some Grade B Maple Syrup I just bought.  Grade B is the highest quality syrup you can get and it takes around 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of it.  It usually runs about 15 dollars for 16 ounces and is true Maple Syrup.

I figured, I might as well make the best possible pancakes to go along with it. :)

Yah, I stay this lean year round and eat whatever I want year round as well.  In the fall/winter I increase my calories to around 3000 or so if not more (some months in the winter I may not even keep track).  The highest I will go is around 185 lbs, still lean, but no need to go higher as there is no point in continually gaining fat.

I am still breaking a few Personal Records, one on Shoulder Presses last week.

So questions:


are you saying this diet is just a way to stay lean and ripped OR are you saying it's a way to stay lean and ripped AND put on muscle too? 

Anyone knows that a decreasing caloric intake past caloric expenditure will result in loss of bodyfat...

Both.  I do raise my calories in the fall/winter but that does not mean its necessary for muscle gain. 

Also, you can gain muscle and strength in a caloric defecit of course as long as you are training.

So, i'm guessing the premise that you're backing is that to gain muscle, weight training is all that is necessary? 

Maybe if that's correct, you could gain even more with higher calories?

You can`t force it when you are a Natural.  The truth is, you will not progress very much over time once you have been training for a decent amount of time.  I also have force fed myself to 246 lbs several times, dieting down from there several times and there has been absolutely no real benefit.

I see.   I too am natural..

I thought that when you're calories are higher, your hormones rise, and you become stronger, and therefore can put on more muscle. 

Your diet is interesting.

Hey adonis what happened to your daily posts? 

One question: do you think its necessary to increase protein above 1 gr per lb when on a calorie deficit? A lot of guys do that to maintain more muscle while dieting according to them.

In your case, did you maintain muscle just fine on .5 - 1 gr protein per lb while on a deficit?

What is the avg calories ?   How many days a week do you train?  For how many minutes?

Did you ever do roids to get ripped originally? Then maintain?

Do you do sprints or cardio along with lifting?

Is the overal calorie in - calorie out the bottom line?

When you did 246 pound down to 173 did you get lipo to get rid of fat cells?

I did the same for 2009, logging everything I ate in a thread.
We sure need more examples of non-masochistic diets.

Great thread, should be a sticky. Would be great if we could get some photos of the foods you cook yourself.

where are the adonis principles and where is the 09 wavelength thread?

Adonis, how do you deal with hunger when not really eating very filling food??

How do you keep yourself from overeating/binging?

How long have you been using this calorie counting method?

How often do you have a high calorie day?

1. I don`t know what you mean by "filling".  Try eating around the same time each day to take advantage of the hormone Grehlin which will abate your hunger if this is an issue.

2. Count your calories.

3. Years and years.

4. Whenever I feel like it.  Sometimes days in a row, weeks or sometimes not for days or weeks.  Just whenever I want with the trick being more deficit days overall than surplus.  Its quite simple.

Allrighty, I will start posting again on here.


Today I will not eat until 12 noon.  I go 16 hours each day without eating as the benefit of fasting daily is proven to have a great positive impact on health.

I mean for example 400g of sweet potato is much more filling than for example a chocolate bar when they are equal in calories.

So you are doing Intermittent Fasting at the moment? What is your current weight, height and bodyfat percentage?

Maybe you should start I new thread explaining your Adonis Principles so that newer members can also understand it a bit better, and then log your food each day stating your current goal etc... If it is too much trouble I understand!

I don`t agree.
For me personally if I eat 400g potato I would be full for an hour or two, but if I eat a chocolate bar I'm not really full which will lead me to eating more?

Also:
How much calories would you recommend for me if I want to maintain a lean body 6-8% bf year round? I'm currently 105kg, 185cm, 12-15% bf.

And also for my girlfriend:
She's 165cm, 68kg, and I would say 18-20% bf. She does weight training with me.

Your advice is much appreciated. :)

This thread shouldn't erupt into a flame war again.
The thread is about improving body composition in other ways than traditional bodybuilding methods.
Quoting articles about how "unhealthy" the diet is benefits nobody and only irritates most that is subscribed to this thread. Sure some of the food isn't the "healthiest", but that's besides the point.
Please respect what is being written. Adonis doesn't come into threads about a bodybuilding diet and says its shit. He is just expressing what has worked for him and many others.

Deleted.  Sorry dudes.  Was wondering about the kashi?  Was wondering bout the soy?  Nevermind.  Wasnt meant to derail.  Will delete this one as well.
Its not necessary to delete it. I was just mentioning it because normally evryone just flames Adonis for his stance on nutrition
