"Why doesnt Americans bodybuilders dont eat Horse meat? "

Umm let me see...maybe because it's unheard of in the US. That's as bad as eating dogs / cats...sick!

"i heard tiger is high in protein, and the taste is comparable to bobcat"

What is wrong with you people? Eat beef, chicken, pork, fish...there's plenty to go around. Leave horses and tigers and bobcats and bears the hell alone!  >:(

We have allot of Buffalo here in Hawaii.  Very good.  On Kauai they have a burger stand that only sells buffalo burgers.  They are unreal.

talapia is almost always farm raised, which makes it shit in my book.  Same with farm raised salmon.  Grass fed beef, buffalo, sushi, oatmeal was not on the list. Ham is garbage.  Full of preservatives.

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


Wow one or two tablespoons!  Man you better ease up  ;D

Plain yogurt is great, active cultures.

I think the weirdest protein I've eaten is a turducken. it's  a turkey stuffed with a duck and stuffed in the duck is chicken breast meat and stuffing in between each layer of meat,,,it was bizarre but good, the fat from the duck seeped into the chicken.

  Several of the items, you mentioned, are wrong. Some of them have a high glycemic index, others have incomplete proteins and others, still, are too processed to qualify as true bodybuilding foods.

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.

Hi!

I don't understand how that work...could you explain please?  I mean, you reduce by 150 which way, i mean, how many carb/pro/fat do you cut?  And habitually how many time last a cutting phase?  Is there a limit of time to respect ...or i don't know ???....well thank you for your help!!

Have a good day!

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.


What is Brita water considered? Is that more like distilled water or purified water? I know it gets rid of bad stuff. And I've always been more worried cuz where I live now we get well water. I've been drinking that stuff for years. To think that it's been removing minerals and electrolytes from my body would suck big time.

Meat does not contain efa's.  I think you ment fresh fish.

It does have EFAs (arachidonic acid, DHA (omega 3), linoleic acid) but these days domesticated cattle has  more saturated fat than the polyunsaturates you are thinking about. Wild cattle and pigs are different.

Udo Erasmus's book has some really suprising info on this. If anyone wants the page number I'll be happy to get it for you (I just don't have the book in front of me right now)

Venison, correct me if I'm wrong, has the highest protien content of any wild game meat. Elk and Buffalo meat also is high in protein and tastes just like beef.

A addition is indeed warrented if I say so myself...I believe MOOSE matches Elk and "Tatonka" for being an excellent source of protien. I have cooked moose hamberger before and had to mix in regular ground beef so it would not crumble. Eskimo pie is also very cold.....

Great stuff where did you get all this info? I've been doing a lot of research on the net but theres so many opinions.  I've come across this site called TrainersBible.com and they have some great material.  Could anyone check it out and let me know if it's a reliable resource? DMG, your insight was very helpful.  Thanks!

Boron (for Bones)
Boron Is a mineral that is important for calcium absorption. For women, this mineral seems to play an important role in enhancing the activity of estrogen cells, which is important for the formation of strong bones.
Boron can be found in grapes, pears, apples, peas, broccoli, peanuts and raisins.

Still not seeing Brewers Yeast and Wheat germ on the list, both of which belong.  Pasta if at all should be Barilla Plus (egg white protein added/high fiber).

Not one fruit made the list.  How about apples?

Also, more vegetables should be added like brussel sprouts, beet greens, collards, tomatoes

trout - one of my favorites

and chile can be a perfect food with lots of flavor

I don't agree. Fructose, high calorie content, little benefit from a bodybuilding perspective that can't be achieved with a vitamin.
