    I fully endorse this thread. :laugh:

    I am on a calorie restrictive diet during the way right now to offset the fact that I eat like a ****ing pirate on weekends.

    So far today I had a bowl of Lucky Charms, a thin mint flavored Chewy granola bar, a very small bag of Funyuns, and a chicken strips and french fries Smart Ones microwaveable lunch. All of that is only 650 calories consumed so far.

    Try to start the day with a bowl of Raisin Bran or Cheerios, with skim milk and blueberries and banana. Orange juice with a multi-vitamin.
    That buys me brownie points for the inevitable temptations that come my way.

    Lunch is leftovers or a Greek yogurt (flavored, I'm not a masochist).
    Snack on nuts, a few pieces of chocolate (I'm an addict).

    Dinner depends on the wife's whims. But focused on the Mediterranean diet (i.e. pasta with olive oil, fish (wild salmon, tuna, swordfish, cod - usually frozen from Trader Joe's - that "fresh fish" from the Supermarket is generally thawed frozen fish from deep sea boats), chicken but with red meat once or twice a week (Costco rib eyes, flank steak, beef ribs or hamburger) - I prefer Choice over Prime, the "high priced" blend has too much marbled fat - just like salt, once you reduce it in your diet, what was normal becomes too much.

    Black coffee (the PC Latin American coop blend), dark roast, then Diet Mountain dew.

    I'm a strong believer in everything in moderation, including moderation.

    I just started a calorie restrictive diet as well. I am pretty good at losing weight. Starvation + exercise and cut out all (or most) red wine. Started this week eating only 2-5 boiled eggs, a can of tuna and a glass of grapefruit juice (plus black coffee and tea). Add in a 10 mile hike up a small mountain every week and in two months I am set to resume over eating and over drinking.

    I've been doing Blue Apron dinners for the past year or so. I get one shipment of every other week. Each shipment contains all of the ingredients to cook 3 meals for 2 adults. It runs $60 with the delivery so $20 per recipe or $10 per plate.

    Two nights ago I made Steaks topped with Warm Salsa Lemon Verde with Roasted Sweet Potato and Broccoli on the side.

    They usually turn out delicious.

    Any thread where there's no stupid arguments is a great thread. :laugh:


    A typical day for me:

    Breakfast- Apple, Banana, or Greek Yogurt

    Lunch- Either leftovers from the previous nights dinner or something like a quick turkey sandwich

    Dinner- Usually something with chicken (grilled chicken, shredded chicken, etc) or ground beef (burgers, chili, etc).

    Typically don't snack between meals, if I do usually it's something like a Greek yogurt or fruit.

    I'm definitely not trying to lose weight, but I do keep track of calories to make sure I maintain my current weight, not go up or down.

    I'm also kinda weird because I don't really care for stuff like pizza or pasta, don't drink any alcohol, and don't drink coffee.

    I got a sous vide machine for xmas so I've been playing around with it lately. I've been making sous vide egg bites for breakfast (copycat of the Starbucks recipe, which are delicious). I'll make 12 at a time on the weekend in little 4 oz mason jars and then my wife and I will eat them for breakfast during the week. I've mixed up the ingredients with bacon, sausage, pork roll, mushrooms, onions, etc. They are perfect for a quick grab and go meal.

    I've also done pork chops in the sous vide which come out perfect. An hour in the water bath at 140 degrees then sear them in a piping hot cast iron pan on all sides.

    I just cannot restrict my food intake. It hurts too much. Anything less than ~2500-3000 calories a day and I feel like I am going to die. :laugh:

    Which means that pre-season and in-season I just have to exercise even more. Though also only drink ~2 days a week in-season as well. Stopping drinking a few beers every night really helps!

    Though trying not to be so stupid with it all anymore. I used to go from ~82kg (and ~15% BF) in middle of summer , to ~87kg (and ~18% BF) at the end of pre-season, to ~78kg (and ~12% BF) by the end of the season in ~April. Which is not very healthy really.

    Now just stay around 80-82kg all year.

    I've been trying to lose weight because 2017 and the first month of 2018 has been a ****show for me mentally and physically. Between being in the hospital for days at a time with my son, and tearing my acl/mcl and meniscus, i ended up gaining like 30 pounds.

    I used to play hockey two nights a week before my injury in December, but since i stopped playing i gained 15 pounds since the start of December. I feel like i eat pretty well actually, i eat a lot of salad/veggies/almonds... but being sedentary makes me gain weight. Due to all the stress i was drinking beer 3-4 nights a week since i got my kegerator setup.

    The last week i've been trying to go to the gym, i figure i cant tear my acl,mcl, meniscus anymore so i've been getting up at 5 in the morning and going to the gym using the elliptical. I stopped drinking during the week also. I haven't had a beer in like 2 weeks which is probably a record for me since i was 21.

    Yesterday:

    Wake up/on way to gym - handful of almonds, Banana Creme Muscle Milk
    Breakfast - Scrambled Egg bowl from Wawa, Monster Ultra Sunrise Zero Cal/Zero Sugar/Zero Carb Energy Drink
    Snack - Nutribullet smoothie (1/2 peach, 1/2 banana, strawberry, Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt, 2% Fairlife ultra filtered Milk)
    Lunch - Romaine Salad, Shredded Cheese, Croutons, 22 oz Diet Dr. Pepper
    Snack - Skinnypop popcorn
    Dinner - Wheat Pasta, Blackened Spicy Shrimp, Broccoli
    Snack - Apple, 2% Fairlife Ultra Filtered Milk

    Drinks throughout the day - Water, Diet Green Tea from Turkey Hill

    Today:

    Breakfast - Scrambled Egg bowl from Wawa, Monster Ultra Sunrise Zero Cal/Zero Sugar/Zero Carb Energy Drink
    Snack - 1 cup of low sodium almonds
    Lunch - 1 gala apple, romaine salad with shredded cheese, blackened shrimp left over from last night, and garlic/butter croutons, 22 oz Diet Dr. Pepper
    Snack - Chocolate Muscle Milk.

    For Dinner we are probably going to do Baked Garlic Chicken Breast, Green Beans, and a Biscuit.

    Is this where you share with us the delicious Thai food you eat everyday? Or are you gonna be asking everyone to air mail steaks?

    Hey man, I recognize and admitted that it's weird. What more do you want from me!? :laugh:

    But I should have been more specific... I do drink coffee sometimes, but always decaffinated. Which, apparently, is also really strange, based on the reactions of people when I mention that. Seems like some people can't imagine drinking coffee for anything other than the caffeine... although I guess what I drink is more like hot, coffee flavored, sugar milk.
