Help me finish planning and tweaking my diet.

  1. Exclamation Help me finish planning and tweaking my diet.


    First a lil background. I'm going to try the Twin Peak's Carb Cycling Diet. This will be my first attempt at a calculated diet. I am 25 years old, 6'1 and weigh around 200lbs. My BMI is 2084.5 and with my Activity Level it is 3335.2. I'm a slender guy but I need to lose this fat around my midsection and I need to go low carb b/c I have high cholesterol, especially on the triglyceride side. Here is my diet, supplement, and workout schedule. I'll post up my Cholesterol numbers once I have it handy and after a couple months of this diet post my new results. But everyone feel free to critique and give suggestions. I may do some before and after pics too. But I won't take them till I actually start the diet.

    Monday:
    No Carb - Protein/Cabs/Fat: 250/0/40 - Calories: < 2500 - Training: Core/Cardio

    Tuesday:
    High Carb - Protein/Cabs/Fat: 250/250/60 - Calories: < 2500 - Training: Chest/Tri

    Wednesday: No Carb - Protein/Cabs/Fat: 250/0/40 - Calories: < 2500 - Training: Shoulders/Lats/Traps

    Thursday: Low Carb - Protein/Cabs/Fat: 250/150/50 - Calories: < 2500 - Training: Back/Bi

    Friday: No Carb - Protein/Cabs/Fat: 250/0/40 - Calories: < 2500

    Saturday: High Carb - Protein/Cabs/Fat: 250/250/60 - Calories: < 2500 - Training: Legs

    Sunday: Low Carb - Protein/Cabs/Fat: 250/150/50 - Calories: < 2500

    Daily Suppliments:

    Paxil: 40g
    Fish Oil: 2.5g DHA
    Xtend: 35g
    Orange Triad Multi Vitamin
    NOW No Flush Niacin: 1.5g
    NOW ECGg: 1g
    Curcumin: 1.5g
    Seasamin: 4ml
    Garlic: ?
    Chromium Picolinate w/ Cinamin: 500mcg/250mg
    Now 7-Keto: 200mg


  2. Looks like a pretty solid starting point, once you get into it, you really find out what needs to be tweaked. Sunday and Monday's low carb combined with cardio is great, but come Tuesday you're upper body is going to be feeling really flat. (so it's good that you're carbing on Tuesday)
    That freaks people out like they just burned off 6 months of benching in one weekend. Just remember sometimes your going to feel really flat, the muscle is still there, so don't let it throw you.

    Good Luck

  3. Throw in some red yeast rice. It actually contains the same molecule as Mevacor, which is a statin. It contains "lovastatin" and is, the red yeast rice that is, adorned with and A rating from the Mayo Clinic for effectively treating Hypercholesteremia. It is pretty difficult for a herbal to get that rating.

    Red Rice Yeast supplement or the actual red yeast rice the food (if there is such a thing)?

    Nevermind, I did some reading and I should not take that with the Niacin I'm already taken. Thanks for the suggestion though.

  6. There really isnt a contraindication that I know of between the two. The only thing that I can think of is hypocholesteromia, which is low blood cholesterol.

  7. As a former Carb Cycling guru, I am pleased to see your set-up here. Looks like a really sound starting point -- now just look forward to the latter portions of the cut when the high carb days get reduced.
