Beef jerky is fine, the only thing to watch out for high sodium

I thought we need more sodium then we think we do

Why doesnt Americans bodybuilders dont eat Horse meat?

Is it unavaible in the USA? , I read an interview with Claude Groulx and he said that he miss Quebec cause he miss Horsemeat.

What about plain yogurt?  Its high in protein and low calorie.  I usually eat one or two tablespoons right before I go to bed.

I know everybody complains about soy products (I can't even remember why now) but I eat a lot or them.  Tofu, edamame, and other things you've never heard of if you haven't lived in Japan.

Jackel -

Based on your sample diet -

You provided 1.5 grams of protein & 1.8 grams of carbs per pound. I figure something like .2 grams of fat per pound.

In that scenario -

I weigh 268 lbs with 35% body fat which equals 268-(268*35%)=174#'s so my calculation would be: 2,613 calorie diet.

Protein =    261.3 total grams, 1045.2 total calories, 43.55 grams a meal.

Carbs =    313.56 total grams, 1254.24 total calories, 52.26 grams a meal.

Fat =        34.84 total grams, 313.56 total calories, 5.81 grams a meal.

I understand the factions are not needed and I will round up, but do you think this is what I would need and fit within your suggestion to drastically reduce body fat?

I am sure of what I weigh, but unsure of the BF%.  Going to get that checked to give me correct calulations.

I would appreciate your suggestion(s) and everyone else's.

Thanks,

Stapuff

How does whole wheat pasta compare with Brown Rice?  Is it nearly as good in quality carbs?

Yes but that would be your STARTING POINT.  You should reduce your calories by about 150 each week until you are finished dieting.  Personally I would go higher in protein and lower in carbs.

Bast is right, you'll lose some BF on that amount but to continue losing it your gonna have to reduce calories after a while.

I can figure out the math for the cutting sample but are there any other modifications I should consider as a woman?  Still seems like a lot to eat for me...

Distilled water?

Maybe im wrong but i always thought that distilled water will detract a whole lot of minerals from your body, which will break down your bone structure...

I dont know this for sure but i dont see what's wron with normal tap water.

Peace

No doubt distilled is bad...There are no minerals in distilled water, causing it to remove electrolytes from your body when you consume it.  Purified water, made by a filtration process, does have minerals and is good for you.  There is a big difference between the two.  Distilled water can be used if you need to detoxify for some reason.  Besides removing good minerals and electrolytes from the body, it also can remove certain toxins.  It should only be consumed for short periods if this is your intent.

I like the list of foods.  It is similar to what I consume on a daily basis.

duck always looks like it is loaded with fat, but is actually comparable to beef and some other meats, especially without the skin..

the main problem people have with soy products is that it raises your estrogen levels or so ive heard.. would probobly add to more water retention.

yea, actually I'd recommend casein protein before bed since it is a slow releasing protein.

I have found the Nitro-Tech PM helps me sleep. I take it about 30 minutes before I crash and I normally sleep better then when I don't take it.

Just a few questions for people with more knowledge than me:
1. I dont understand the Olive Oil thing...  Am I supposed to drink regular Olive Oil that u get at the supermarket?  Is this the type of Olive Oil I am supposed to drink "2 table-spoons" of per day?  Or is just cooking with Olive Oil enough for my diet?  I asked this, because I went to drink a tablespoon of straight olive oil and my girlfriend freaked and said it would make me sick.
2.  I know you not supposed to have carbs right before bed, so does this mean I eat protein/fat meals at night and before bed? (eg. meats, protein shake, almonds, olive oil, etc)

Good questions Aussie, although I'm not sure I have more knowledge than you.

1.  Olive Oil is a good source of PUFA's (polyunsaturated fatty acids) especially your omega 3 & 6,  and are essential for normal hormone production and cell membrane health.  All of the health benefits are still not known yet.  In terms of ingestion, yes you should buy "virgin" or "extra virgin" olive oil.  You can use this from now on for cooking or even on your salads.  If you don't eat salads then you can simply mix a tablespoon or so with  your protein shakes.  Also, drinking a tablespoon of olive oil will not make you sick.

2.  having carbs before bed, okay that's fine.  But what time is dinner?  Considering dinner is around seven or so then a 1/2 brown rice or yams is fine.  After that though, then you should keep the meals to chicken/red meat and mixed veggies, or just a protein shake and mixed nuts. (especially almonds)

You sound like you've got it together...hope this helps
just not good enough
