Best diet for energy
I am looking for the best diet for energy. Paleo, warrior, zone, etc. I have done the 5-6 meals a day for years but now my focus is on energy first, muscular developement second. Any input would be great. Also I switched myself and family over to almost all organic foods about a year ago. I am curious on peoples opinions on the subject. Thanks much!

I am nervous about taking over 2 yolks a day with all the cholesterol. I know many people on this site say it has nothing to do with levels but I still am unsure about that. I def will read more on the subject. Ten whites a day is a staple for me though(1-2 yolks). Thanks for your input.

I forgot to mention, I would be careful of eating tons and tons of cheap eggs (tons meaning 8+). Eight is just a guestimate. But cheap eggs generally have a really poor omega 3: omega 6 ratio. One of the really great benefits of organic or at least free range chickens is that they are a good omega-3 source. At any rate, dietary cholesterol only makes up up to around 15% of your serum cholesterol level.
EDIT: how cholesterol works in you is a rather complex issue to explain out in a single post, but basically you're safe to eat all the egg yolks you want (though know they're pretty calorie dense, that's about the only issue you could have).

Genetics and insulin play a much larger role in serum cholesterol than dietary cholesterol.

In my opinion, if you want to get energy then you should eat vegetables like.spinach,salad greens and others . you should eat fruits daily in the morning because fruits have lot of vitamins that give the energy to our body.You should drink fresh fruit juice daily in the morning. It will keep you energetic and attentive. This is healthy diet,.

I'd bump up your fats and keep your carbs moderate. Something like a 40/40/20 plan. 40% carbs 40% fats and 20% protein.

That diet above is equivalent to 1 of my 4 meals a day I would be lethargic on it. I always kickstart with 2 or 3 cups of oats 70grams protein powder shake in 1 litre of milk a banana or 2 and a cup of blueberries this has me active for hours. Not hungry in the mornings so don't feel like anything savoury.

thanks for the diet tips guys! I love this website! I am back to 5 meals a day semi zone style. I also am trying to not just rely on diet alone. My sleep, stress levels, and workouts are also improving so I have been feeling pretty good. Sometimes I work with to low of a rep range and wait too long between sets.

i ran warrior diet for about 6 weeks. I grazed about 600 cals through the day and around 1200 at my night feeding. My night feeding(most of the time) was: a dozen egg whites(2 yolks), 2 cups oats, big salad with olive oil dressing), maybe a glass of wine. To my suprise I maintained my gains from previously eating about 2700 cals a day. Not sure if that would of been the case long term though. I remember someone on here once mentioned that it is not the amount of calories you take in but the anabolic effect the cals have on your body. Eggs seem to work best for me. Maybe because that little spermy white thing attached to the yolk !!
