I was reading something about an all protein diet and very little carbs and about 2 gallons of water a day. Now I read that you can do this for about two weeks, but I need to know details if anyone has tried it and if you had how long to you recommened that I stay on it. What should I eat?? I was think chicken breast and veggies. So please if anyone knows anything about this please let me know thank you.

PW, Dave Draper talks about this in his book "Brother Iron, Sister Steel" and on his online column as the "Tuna and Water Diet." He claims that it was common among BBers in the 1960s. He recommends it for short periods, like 3 days. I ate nothing but tuna (with seasoning) for 3 straight days, with lots of water. Recommendation - if you do this, add metamucil.

your body needs some carbs to function. period. keep the carbs complex. oats, brown rice, and yams. keep them in the morning and around training times, the rest of your meals can be any lean protein and veggies

I agree you do need to keep some carbs n your diet. Timing is important. Like AppliedBaby said around training and in the a.m.
