Dietary regime discussion thread.

Recommended Posts

theadmiral

I am very interested to know how other forum members eat to maintain a healthy, athletic physique and keep their weight down.

 

Do you eat three meals a day? Two? More? Less?

 

Do you abstain from any particular kind of food for health reasons?

 

Do you mix in exercise with your diet for improved results?

 

Everyone is different and different routines yield different results for all people.

 

I have found that for me, abstaining from red meat as much as possible, eating lots of fish, eating two meals a day (Lunch and an early dinner), and daily exercise keeps me in very good shape. One of the most important things is to not eat late at night or snack in between meals.

 

Please feel free to post in this thread about your dietary routine (if you have one) and what you have found works best for you, or what is guaranteed to lead to gaining a couple of pounds. Mature comments only please.

Only two meals? Do you at least have snacks and what not?
As for me, my biggest issue is my sweet tooth. I try not to eat so much sugar, I also cut out sugary drinks and only drink water, tea and sometimes milk. Portion size is another thing I need to fix. I have a big appetite and eat really fast and tend to make large meals for myself that really isn't needed so I need to start sizing down and actually chewing my food. Other then that, I eat relatively healthy with 3 meals a day and a couple snacks in between, usually fruit or vegetables. I eat a lot of sushi too, but mainly sashimi. None of those deep fried rolls!

Pescetarian diet. I eat around 3.5k calories a day. I abstain from red meat for health reasons and ecological hesitance. I'm fine with caught fish but by and large I'm a vegetarian who is liable to chow down on a mean bowl of shrimp gumbo if I'm presented such a thing. Running daily is also a good idea, and I follow through with that. I should probably do more strength training, admittedly.

You should be eating 4 or so smaller meals instead of 2 large meals - that'll help keep your metabolism more active during the day when you're not exercising.

 

I keep mostly to the paleo diet - meat (mostly poultry, lean game, and fish), and seasonal vegetables, beans and greens for fiber, mushrooms for meat replacement (for cost, when I buy meat it's not from conventional meat factories).

6 small meals/day. I´ve even done 8 meals day diet, but back then I exercised 3 hours every week day.

 

I eat lots of vegetables and fruit. 6 apples and a big bowl of vegetables every day is nothing abnormal, add some tomatoes, water melon and pine apple to that. Anything healthy goes down.

For the bread, I eat mainly just dark cracker bread, it´s pure fibre. You know it does not stuck like that white uber-processed crap. Here in Finland dark rye bread rules.

Oat meals, not often but in some evening of the week. I don´t eat it in the morning because I have no patience to cook before work.

 

Then we get to the protein Baaaaaby!!

- 3-4 200/250g buckets of cottage cheese/day.

- 2 250g buckets of quark/day.

- Every time I see an egg rolling down the street, I´ll eat it. I might have few day periods without eggs though. I prefer naturals, non-cage hen eggs.

- How much is the Fish??? Almost every day. Gotta change the fish breeds often, it comes out of ears otherwise.

- Nuts, I just ate 200g bag of mixed nuts. Good fats and protein. and a lot of energy.

- High quality protein shakes after workouts.

- Protein bars for snacks.

 

- edit: just noticed that the 7kg Christmas pork has vanished from freezer :lol: Normally once a week red meat.

 

Exercising 6 days a week now. Running and weights, I also walk almost 10 km every day but that does not even count.

 

That´s my diet for now, in spring it will change to a bit tighter, and taking less calories in.

As long as it's possible, meat, fish, vegetables and others from local and ecological production or fair trade.

I don't follow any diet, I just eat whatever I'm in the mood for as the day goes on. Some days I eat a lot, some days I don't.

I've gotten better with eating since I quit smoking. Gained a well needed bunch of weight even.

I think I have a good diet of healthy foods and crap foods.

 

My wife is a serious vegetarian(of many years) and a damn fine cook, so that helps. Even though she has no issues with meat and even cooking it for me, I have no issues with eating strict vegetarian meals.

 

Even though I live in a city that has lots of quick and easy, not so healthy, food options that I enjoy regularly - I always like to boast about not having fast food in a good 35 years.

I eat maybe once every other du, it's not because I'm broke, can't afford food, I'm never hungry it's so f*cking bad I am on the verge of having to go back on TPN (Total Perental Nutrition) http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parenteral_nutrition

 

I would try and gorse myself to eat but if I do I just end up throwing up. I only weigh 125 pounds (soaking wet) I used to be able to eat anything I wanted and not gain an ounce. It really sucks because I can't really go out to eat with friends when the MC stops to eat I can't enjoy a good burger, steak it pizza with the everyone.

Well vegetearions r kinda gay amirite

 

But in all seriousness, I just eat whatever I am in the mood for. I have no specific diet, albeit I do not eat really bad and I rarely drink anything other than tea or water. I eat three meals a day that are typical in size. My weight is slightly above average (well for Americans haha).

About every 4 hours. I eat once every 3 hours every day I got a change.

It´s good to eat small meals more often to keep blood sugar out of peaks. And having constantly energy is better. Don´t forget to drink water!

Yeah it's something like this. :^:

It depends on my appetite for food though and if I happen to have somewhat increased I might take into consideration of eating a single meal for a day with bread and milk as backup for diet.

To be honest as far as my " diet " goes I am all over the place. I try to eat under 2000 cals a day and do it while eating better foods as well, but temptation often gets the best of me. I don't ever really eat the 3 recommended square meals a day. I usually just eat something when I wake up and in the evening for dinner/supper. I usually find it easier to eat one thing a day and say NO to everything else than it is to plan a proper healthy meal thrice daily.

 

As far as quality goes it's nonexistent for a lack of better words. Usually I just run to the drive-thru or eat some random stuff that I have sitting around. It's a shame because there are some really good tasting healthy meals, but they are often expensive to make and time consuming. Considering, however, that I have much time anyway the only excuse that I have on the topic of time is that I am very impatient and it is faster to open or pick up something pre-made than it is to cook. I really need to teach myself some patients and self-discipline.

I ate once many years ago in a vegetarian restaurant and it was probably a worse experience than the chinese food...

You guys should try prison food for a while and then you will learn to appreciate either from a good Steak to a Salad.

I eat when I'm hungry.

 

On the average day, my eating scheduele is as follows: breakfast, lunch, dessert, mid day snack (sometimes) supper, dessert, night time snack (always).

 

I can't lie, the way I eat, I should be fat, but I'm not. I'm about 5'7'', 145 pounds, and since I have a really high metabolism, I get hungry quite often. My diet isn't the best, but it's not awful either. I don't eat fast food that often, and I try to stay away from anything containg transfats.

 

One thing I know for sure is that I could never, ever, ever, EVER be a vegitarian, because meat is one of my favorite things to eat.

I don't eat much but the frequency varies depending on how active I am. I agree with the posts about smaller meals spaced out being a good thing.

 

For a while now I've been on a low sodium diet. It takes some getting used to. At first everything tastes incredibly bland but, in time, your tastes adjust and you don't want as much salt. It's good for your heart.

 

And I'm desperately trying to think of something immature to say, since you asked us not to, but I'm coming up empty.

Eating 3 big meals a day, and altogether I'm having around 5 to 6 if you include snacks and tea. I'm trying to gain weight as well as train at the same time so I'm easily having around 4000 calories a day. Maybe even slightly more. I've gained 13 kg since last september, which isn't impressive since I was underweight at 53 kg at 6 ft. Now I'm 66kg.

4000 calories? Isnt that quite a bit above normal (Im not sure?) I guess if you are weight training you need to have more energy in your body. I'm not sure how many calories I eat a day. I should measure it sometime.
