Thanks for the info. I have noticed muscle gains since I have been doing the MAG-10 pulse fasts when I think about it. I have PB’s every week, but am not sure if I can attribute that to the MAG-10, or the workout plan that I am on right now. Maybe both. It’s an Athletes Performance style of workout. I am in the getting strong stage.
Anyway, I know what you are saying by people saying that they eat clean and have a crappy diet. I am not one of those people though. I am not saying that I am gaining fat, but just not getting as lean as I want to be. I am about 15-16% body fat right now, so maybe I really don’t have much to complain about, but would like to see a 6 pack and not a 4 pack ;). Fitness and nutrition are my life now a days. I have been following yourself and John Berardi for a while now, so I have learned a lot about nutrition.
My diet/exercise Monday-Friday looks somewhat like this:
Breakfast: 1 egg, 3 egg white omelet with 1/4 cup of feta or reduced fat cheese, 1-2 handfuls of Spinach, and mushrooms, 1/2 apple
Breakfast sometimes comes before an interval workout, sometimes after (no weights, mostly sprints, rower, stair climber, battling ropes)
Lunch: Huge spinach salad with avocado, 2 hard boiled eggs, 6 oz chicken, and balsamic dressing (about 2 tablespoons)
Snack: Scoop of Metabolic Drive and a tablespoon of PB2, or protein pudding which consists of a scoop of Metabolic Drive, tbsp flax, tbsp coconut flour, about 1/4 cup almond milk, tbsp PB2, 1 tsp chia seeds, 1 tsp of hershey’s powder unsweetened.
Dinner: 8 oz protein, with vegetables of some kind.
I will have a 2 scoop Metabolic Drive shake with a tbsp of PB2 at night before bed if hungry.
I workout Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri (2 scoops Surge before,during and after lifting)
I do some kind of HIIT 4 times a week.
So I do eat clean, but maybe I don’t eat enough, or often enough? Do you think that my carb intake is too low?
Thank you for your time and input.
