I followed the paleo solution by Robb Wolf. Thanks for the info. My macros are at 183 grams protein. 80grams fat. And the rest carbs. I like the banana idea but what about the sugar intake? Trying to stay below 20 grams if possible.
    Yah idk why he advocates bananas being the best source of carbs...I don't quite agree. If you want fruit id settle for more fibrous fruits like apples, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries.

    I like blueberries and put them in my shakes daily. I'm up to 2300 cals now but think I still need to go a bit higher. I can feel my Abs but just have a thin layer of fat over them. Thinking another 8-10 pds to go before visible. Now doing 2a days. Cardio in a fasted state in the am. And weights in the pm. Low reps high weight.

    Bananas are a great source of Potassium, especially useful if your diet is higher in sodium (not that I buy into the whole "sodium causes hypertension" hypothesis").

    What about the sugar? Is it ok to have a high day from fruit? I try to stay around 20grams or less per day. I do like to eat a banana after I lift heavy.

    I use avocados, almonds, etc to get potassium. I'm in no way against bananas/fruit but I just feel there are better ways to get in your vit k (I meant potassium, my bad).

    Edit: I was a little drunk yesterday.

    Vitamin K isn't pottasium lol , but yeah other sources are fine. I'm never concerned with sugar myself as i always pair a sugar with a fat or protein to lower the insulin response unless intra or post workout.

    Anyway, in terms of fruit, I would choose Blueberries and apples over a banana. I just like bananas lol
