i appreciate us being mature about this and not turning into keyboard cowboys, as that is not my way, and obviously, not yours either. we can both tip our binary hats to one another! thanks, mayn.
This is why I was impressed enough with this forum to join. I love the fact that people can actually get on a bb and be decent with one another!
Kudos to that... like I said before, y'all are good people. I'm looking forward to being a part of what goes on here.
...and for the record, I wasn't showing up trying to be a "diet guru" by any stretch of the imagination.
to rugger: i apologize for my very first statement, claiming that your diet was not healthy enough. it is a fine diet, in the way that you have your major components measured to fit your body and your goals. that took learning and smarts from that learning. i just love vegetables and fruits for the heat they give the engine.
to hurley: well, we settled up, but i gotta tell ya, way to bring me down off dat high horse. hell, we all hop on it sometime, though. hahaha.
later y'all, i'ma go hit the shower and then hit a movie. think i'll watch.........i don't know, but it'll be somethin' good.
We're all square guys, no harm done. Although, we've thoroughly hijacked this thread
Rugger, I agree that your diet just needs some veggies. FRESH, if possible
I need some good ideas to add quality calories cheaply. I don't think the amount I've planned will be enough. Lets aim for 5k, so another 1200. I'm in college so I can't be spending loads of cash. Thoughts?
here's a good way to get the necessary veggies, cheap too.
go to kroger by 10 bags of frozen veggies any will do. They usally run for lke 10 bucks for 10 bags. Each day microwave the whole content of the bag. Throw that bad boy in some tuberware. Carry it with you. So u can bust it out at what ever meal. Go for the green veggies there free calories, and provide great fiber, which u need on a high protein diet.
What I do is buy the pre-mixed Spring Mix (Popye brand) salad. It has 5-6 different greens in it and baby spinach. I mix that with sliced cucumber and bell peppers or California Slaw (juliean sliced broccolli, red cabbage, carrots). I eat one of these with each of my main meals. If you are concerned with getting full on the veggies you can always eat in the order of protein, carbs, veggies.
An easy way to increase your calories is too increase you milk intake or add fish oil or olive oil to your diet. It will increase your fat intake with EFA's you need. Increased fat intake has been said to increase natural test production too.
