    My plan for my run with XF


    I am still tinkering with what I am going to run with my XF, but I know that RPM, Drive, and BCAAs will be included. I am torn between IGF-2 and Activate X, but that is not really the point right now.

    Unlike most of you bastards, I am going to be cutting during the holidays, which is probably going to be a horrible idea. Not a true cut in the BBing sense, but I am going to be at maintenance or slightly below for the 50 day cycle. Since I decided to drop to 155 lbs, I really can't get too far above 175 unless I want to go through hell again. This will not start until November 5th, but the diet I am planning is something along these lines:

    8 AM
    1 whole egg w/ 2 whites
    4 oz animal protein (turkey or beef)
    2 slices Ezekiel bread or 5.5 oz of red potatoes
    1 serving of fruit (banana or pineapple)

    10:30 AM
    10g of BCAAs w/ 6g of added Leucine

    11:30-12:30
    First Training Session

    1 PM
    6 oz of protein
    1 C of Wild Rice
    2 servings of veggies (broccoli, mushrooms, or green beans)

    3 PM
    2 whole eggs w/2 whites
    2 Tbsp of Salsa
    Mushrooms

    5PM
    Smoothie of:
    Pumpkin
    Pineapple
    Vanilla EvoPro

    6-8 PM
    Second Training Session
    10g of BCAA w/ 6g of Leucine

    8:30 PM
    6 oz of protein (beef or fatty fish)
    1/2C of Wild Rice
    2 servings veggies

    11 PM
    1 Tbsp Almond Butter or 1 oz of mixed nuts
    1.5 servings of EvoPro

    My basic principle are to use as few refined products as possible and, outside of Ezekiel bread and protein/BCAAs, I have all natural whole foods in my diet. Every 3-4 days, I will add 50-75g of carbs for metabolic confusion and to have a small refeed.

    20% of your caloric intake is fine. Coconut oil, and MCT's are excellent choices to increase fat intake.

    No, I do cardio everyday, but I lift 3x/week. This is my basic breakdown-
    Mon-Lift, Conditioning/MMA
    Tue-Cardio, Jiujitsu
    Wed-Lift, Conditioning/MMA
    Thur-Cardio, JJ
    Fri-Lift, Cardio
    Sat-Cardio or conditioning

    Cardio can range from distance running (5 miles or so) to cross-training to HIIT. It all depends on how I am feeling.

    That was something I was thinking about doing, especially since I have seen a few articles where adding in cholesterol for periods of time can lead to extra LBM gains.

    Ehh, it is my decision, so I can't really complain too much. Also, like I said in another thread, that $1000 show/$1000 win fight check will make it a little easier. Luckily, I can still go balls-out during Thanksgiving and have plenty of time to make weight.

    I'm currently doing at least a dozen whole eggs a day. fyi medium eggs have about 60mg, large 65-70, and xl 70-75 of AA. My cholesterol is quite low, so I could actually stand to take in the extra fat.

    between government sites as well as from egglands best (the omega 3 eggs). Its temperature stable however not necessarily oxidation stable - so scrambled may wreck it, but hard boiled is ok. i'm just buying pre-hard boiled eggs from teh grocery store now, its easier.

    Damn, I hate hard-boiled eggs. Maybe AA was another reason, along with the added cholesterol, that people gained LBM in a study I saw where they added extra whole eggs to their diet.

    I am actually starting to question most common BBing diets as a whole, especially when it comes to fats.

    Mainly food choices. For example, many people have a mild food allergy to oats, yet it is one of the staples of BBing. Also, the idea of "bulking" and "cutting" have undergone a very bad transformation. I do believe that you should eat more while bulking, but it is starting to get taken too far. There is too much of an emphasis on instant gratification and expecting to get huge overnight, so people eat tons of trash calories. In a way, I think BBing is another form of OCD.

    Apples, pineapple, oranges, and all berries are good sources.

    Bananas are higher on the GI, but I still eat them once or twice a day. Post training is a good time to replenish not only carbs, but also electrolytes. I try to use as few food supplements as possible to take in the phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals in natural form.

    I'm still in the cutting/recomp for the next probably 3 months, so I have to be cautious with carbs.

    My philosophy is that fruits and vegetables do not really have to be limited. Obviously, some times are better than others, but I eat between 2-5 servings a day. My main sources are bananas, pineapple, peaches, berries, and apples.

    You know I had 3 large apples yesterday, 2 the day before, and 1 today because I ran out of oats and I really like apples. My muscles feel really really full

    I can't explain the physiological reasons, but fruit really helps out with glycogen. I have a theory that it is the a mix of the phytochemicals and electrolytes, but nothing definitive. Humans have been eating fruits and vegetables for much, much longer than grains and I think that most forget about this.

    There's a reason they say "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" man I'm a loser.

    Im going to keep on this I think. Maybe eat 1 in the morning with my other carb and 1 pre-workout in the same fashion.

    It may also be that the GI is low and they provide the body with a steady stream of glucose.
