How Difficult Is It For Men To Be on A Diet?
I've read an article on a website where a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association was quoted saying that most men don't want to be on a diet because they think that they'll be eating nothing but salads.
That's how I actually feel.
What about you?

I kind of like being on a diet, as long as the diet is working and I see results in the mirror or scale.
Chicken Breasts / Pork Chops are almost always good for a diet, definitely not a salad. If you have a smart-phone you can download apps that you just put in the name of what you eat, match it to what you ate and enter it. You just have to make sure you know how many servings or ounces you ate.

My job requires me to be out on the field which gave me no option but eat at fastfoods. I need to watch what I eat now so I need suggestions about healthy meals from these fastfoods.
will appreciate any suggestion

Burger King: TenderGrill Chicken Sandwitch with no Mayo (mayo loaded with fat calories)
KFC: Grilled selection
Chick-fil-a: Chargrilled Chicken Sandwitch, I would eat two of them
McD: Grilled chicken selections
Wendy's: Grilled Chicken Go Wrap, Ultimate Chicken Grill
Arby's: Large Roast beef
Yu can cut down on the carbs by not eating all the buns, see if they have wheat bread, don't order sides, avoid mayo unless it is light, iced tea for a drink

The tendergrill should have more protein. Checkout bk.com nutrition info/ it is more 40+g protein

Well let's think about this. I consider my diet to be more of a lifestyle, a healthy lifestyle. Eating 6-7 times a day on a high protein diet is really the only way to shred and store food accordingly. Oatmeal, applesauce, brown rice, veggies, eggs, cottage cheese, natural fruit, protein shakes, protein bars/snack bars, chicken, fish, beef once in awhile, good whole wheats, a good multi-vitamin have a cheat day once in awhile cut out sugar as much as possible. Try to workout high stamina 45 minutes per day. You will be shocked how much better you feel.

If you structure your meals,count macro's for those meals you'll be able to sub in any food you really want when dieting.Using intermittent fasting also helps when the calories get really low

I think the word "diet" is abused actually. Dieting doesn't always have to be EXTREME. You can have a diet plan that caters to your needs that doesn't have you eating dry chicken and veggies every meal. These days its easy to mix it up! You should check out the recipes section of AM. Tons of healthy ones. Here is one of my favs.
Crab salad stuffed pitas!
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon lime juice
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
7 ounces cooked crab meat, drained (see Note)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery heart with leaves
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon minced jalapeño pepper, or to taste
2 6-inch pita breads, warmed and cut in half crosswise
2 large lettuce leaves, torn in half
1.Whisk vinegar, oil, lime juice and pepper in a medium bowl. Add ginger, crab, celery, onion, cilantro and jalapeno; toss well. Line pita halves with lettuce and fill with crab salad.
Only 250Cals/serving with 16.5g of protein!

Love it when I "diet"
Problem is when I'm not dieting I eat what I want and feel like crap. Body looks soft and sleep gets messed up. Get on high protein/fats and lower or eliminate carbs and I feel awesome.
Just hard to do all the time when my Italian wife makes dinner. Love pasta but it hates me.

Keto diet, so awesome, all the time. That's how I got as lean as in my avatar. I call it the meat diet. Felt so good on that diet.

I agree with ur "meat" diet I like a lot of diff proteins and I'm not a big fan of veggies do it works out pretty well
01-07-2012, 03:52 AM
Keto is pretty fun though.Bacon and eggs for breakfast,making your own breakfast cereals with nuts and seeds and using soy milk over them.I'll admit it's a tasty way to diet but just not optimal for some
