STAY/GET BACK IN SHAPE VOL 3.0 -- A New Niketalk = A New Thread - Page 168

post #5011 of 47222
1. I don't soak my steel cut oats. I thought that was only beneficial for those looking to cut down on cooking time. Since I am not cooking mine I thought it was pointless. Am I wrong? Also, I sometime add some Psyllium Husk to my shakes. Extra Extra Extra fiber.

2. I cooked a LOT of food this weekend.

2 Chicken Breasts: Seasoned with Cumino, Ceyenne Pepper, Black Pepper, Oregano.

Ground Chicken Spaghetti: I bought some roasted red peppers. So I took those, some spicy peppers that my friend's father grows and some garlic and blended them into a puree. I added that and a half of a jar of tomato sauce and simmered it with the ground chicken. Came out good.

I made the pinto bean soup with kale and sweet potatoes.

Made some string beans

Brown Rice.

I am set for the week man.

Like I said best sources to me. Greek yogurt is gross. Everything else you have to eat a butt load of just to get 40g and it ends up being twice the calories of 2 chicken breast.

what about beans? Eggs? Almonds? Pistachios? Turkey Breast? Low Fat Cheese? You can get lean beef and still get a bunch of protein. There's tons of alternatives high in protein, low in general fat.

We have to start thinking about things other than just hitting numbers. Eating chicken every day just isn't healthy. SO much cholesterol man. You have to keep that in mind when you are consuming so much animal flesh.

But I know so many of us are so hell bent on getting, "X amount of protein."

I see that as a big issue with most workout dudes today.

word greek yogurt has hella protein or cottage cheese. i try to eat two servings of one or the other each morning. i get the chobani greek yogurt the apple one has like 15 grams of protein x2 is 30 grams right there. 

 

edit: and my mom gets these turkey burgers that have like 35 grams of protein in one patty. i was like damb so i been making on those

Almonds to get 20g of protein will be well over 300 calories. Chicken taste better than Turkey, low fat cheese gives me like 12g of protein at about 90 cal and I can tmake a meal of just cheese, Eggs isnt something I could eat 3 times a day.

Like I said the other stuff are good add ons but Chicken is the Foundation of everything in my book. 1 breast at 110-120 cal with 22-24 g of protein = GOAT.

I mean I enjoy meat, and will eat meat every meal, Chicken is the Lesser evil of all meat besides turkey, and Chicken tastes way better than turkey. At the end of the day I cant eat stuff I dont enjoy, like I said greek yogurt is one of the worst things I ever tried, I rather have almonds and a banana as a snack, my meals I like to get the bulk of my macros from, lol Im not gonna eat a pound of nuts for dinner.

I don't eat organic so it might be slightly hypocritical of me shooting down a meat choice, but I wouldn't get pre-made turkey brugers. I would buy the ground turkey and make my own.

I will find the research behind it when I find it.

I really wasn't suggesting any of that but ok.

You can load up on veggies as well.

I am simply saying that you should start focusing on the HEALTH part of the journey and not just the physical transformation aspect of it.

Chicken is high in cholesterol? In the skin I would say but I'm not sure about much being in lean chicken.

 

It is the best meat by far the for amount of protein with low amount of calories.

 

Moderation is key with anything in life.

But eating something EVERYDAY is moderation? Not at all.

The best MEAT is still high in cholesterol man. You all keep missing that fact.

ABout 140 in a chicken breast.

Animal products are high in cholesterol. Which is a main reason why people go vegan

Any of you all bake with your Protein powder?

Seen people make cheese cakes, donuts, etc, I may do waffles which is nothing spectacular.

From Livestrong.com:

 

The American Heart Associationicon1.png recommends you limit your cholesterol intake to 300 mg per day

I know I'm not eating that much cholesterol in a day, but either way I need to cut back but its damn good and fills me up. I eat a lot of salmon and tuna also so I should be ok. I won't have the same diet for my whole life but while cutting I'm doing this one.

But you said you eat MEAT with every meal. Heart disease should be factored into the Staying/Getting in Shape process. That is what I am saying. Your heart should be more important than you getting your protein quota.

Which brings me back to my main point, we all need to cut out the amount of meat we consume. Not telling you to go vegan. Not telling you to be a vegetarian. But adopting a, "More veggies, less meat" lifestyle can help us all.

The picture is bigger than "gains."

Boss,

If ONE chicken breast is roughly HALF of a high intake of cholesterol per day, why do you think you aren't reaching 300 per day?

Breakdown what you ate yesterday and we can analyze. It is so easy to get 300 man. SO easy.

Yeah your right, time to cut back on the chicken in terms of eating it everyday. Because I eat 10oz-13oz for lunch but I swear there is no fat on it lol

 

I don't want to down play cholesterol but I don't think mine is high at all.

I always take stuff like that with a grain of salt, they usually dont account for people living an active lifestyle or that are athletic. When you look at food daily values those % are usually that for a woman 130lb that does nothing.

Yea when you are talking about caloric intake maybe but cholesterol is cholesterol Luck. There is no, "they aren't factoring in lifestyle" aspect to this.

Yeah I do cardio everyday and the chicken I have has no skin or fat. I'm not going vegetarian either. But I'm going to get a physical soon just to find out since I've lost this weight.

I mean honestly in life some stuff just is what it is, there are far worst things you can do. Me personally Im never going vegan, I`m not gonna eat full salads as a meal, I might mix in some no meat food but plain and simple Meat is apart of African culture and my people live a long time so if it isnt broke not gonna fix it. I honestly feel that being active trumps all, of course you cant eat 10 steaks and think because you play ball you are good but eating meat 1-2 times a day is perfectly normal to me. Thats my take on it though.

If you are doing CrossFit at 11, why are you skipping breakfast? All you have on your stomach is an orange before you go through that?
