Need Help Putting the Diet Together


#1

I’ve been reading and reading but I can’t find out where to find how many shakes I need to drink a day and what shakes need to have what in it. I know my high day is 1824 and my low day is 1520, but from there I’m stuck. Any help?

Each scoop of Metabolic Drive is about 100 to 110 calories. Subtract the calories from the flax, peanut butter, fiber tabs, and Flameout. What you are left with is the calorie total you need to fill with shakes, which frankly, is 3rd grade-level math, IMHO…nothing too complex about it.

For the lift days, subtract 310-320 calories from the Metabolic Drive shake contribution to your calories because that’s what the Surge provides.

lol well with 2180 on sats i mustve slept in third grade.

So in each shake, there should be flax and peanut butter. I can’t find servings, how to split it to make for the calories. More PB or more flax, or more fiber tabs.

Also, so I should be drinking 6 shakes on my high day and 5 shakes on my low day?

So my low day would be 5 300 calorie shakes and my high day would be 6 300 calorie shakes?

No. Peanut butter is ONE teaspoon (I believe) in your last shake of the day. Two of your shakes have flax. I think it’s two doses of Flameout too.

Six shakes each day. For me, it’s perfect because I’m getting 1500 cals on my off days (split between six shakes and the flax, fish oil, and PB) and 1800 on my lift days - that’s just enough to add my Surge to my regular day’s intake.

The ‘serving size’ for my natural peanut butter was something like 2 tablespoons - so I found out how many calories were in the 2 tbsp and then found out how many tsp was in 2 tbsp. Then I divided the calories in 2 tbsp by the number of tsp in 2 tbsp and got something like 33 calories.

The fiber tabs are something like 16 calories - it’s written on the label. The only thing I couldn’t find an easy calorie-count for was the Superfood. I’m guessing it’s minimal.

Also, I got the 1500 and 1800 calorie numbers from rounding up from values over 1450 and 1750…I can’t remember the exact amounts. The round numbers make it easier and this is such a calorie restrictive diet that rounding up for numbers over 50 probably won’t hurt - I think it’s what Chris recommends - someone correct me if I’m wrong.

Metabolic Drive:

Surge:

And this site helped me out with other products:

Superfood is a mystery to me though. I remember someone saying about 20 calories a scoop… not sure though. EDIT: Nope, you can ignore its calorie content! (See Shugs post below)

If you’re struggling with the calculations, then do what I did and set up an Excel spreadsheet - it came in useful for me.

I go through the set-up step by step in that link. Just scroll down and follow along.

And Superfood is less than 20 calories, practically 0 I think. No need to count anything,
