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.

That's literally my everyday except sat and sun I don't workout or take a shake
Any ideas on how to improve this? Things to add or take away?

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?

Get rid of the white rice.

Using the, "There are worse things" logic won't get you far man.

And just because it is a part of the African culture doesn't mean you HAVE to stick with it. You can alter it.

Not broke don't fix it? What is broke? Oh yea to you broke means dead right? laugh.gif

laugh.gif at this stupid vegan preaching nonsense.

people all over the world before this stupid trend even came to existence ate meat with every meal. some were healthy some were unhealthy. meat isn't killing anyone unless it's stuff like pork. are you going to sit here and say olympic athletes are unhealthy too

how is eating chicken everyday NOT moderation? It's not like people are eating an entire chicken daily.

drinking water everyday is that excessive too. eyes.gif



tried to run 2 miles today, I'm not out of shape and I play ball about once a week but new years resolutions blah blah. i thought i could do it cause when is tarted about 2 days ago I ran a mile and it was a breeze... not today. Then again last time I ran with someone else and might've paced myself differently

... definitely walked that 2nd mile. realistically i think maybe in a week or two i'd be good though. I'll be checking this thread, hopefully it's less vegantalk indifferent.gif

lol not gonna change my beliefs and customs because someone not even a part of my culture deems it right. lol Thats how they bamboozled us with Religion.

I`m gonna live my life and enjoy it, I work out because I want to look good, not doing it to live till I`m 100. If I wanted optimal health or whatever Id do cross fit. Everyone has different goals.

If I have a heart attack at age 40 because I ate meat every day, guess what, so what I know I enjoyed my life.

lol word look at the Native Americans dudes ate meat every day/meal and were in amazing shape, not to bring race up but I`m good on some white scientist telling me how to live my life. Cavemen weren't vegetarians, they ate meat vegetables and fruit every meal.

QFT. People trying to cut out all the great things in life, avoiding a sip of alcohol, a meal that has been fried... talking about "I'll live longer" You're alive but you're not living.

More veggies, less meat is all I am saying. Take it how you want.

I did a protein pumpkin pie once. It was alright. And like you, pancakes and waffles. I have made protein bars before as well. You can make an easy high protein no bake cheesecake just using ff cream cheese, fresh or thawed frozen strawberries, and a granola or flax or whatever cereal you want to use to make the crust.

And reference the better source of protein argument, you can get chicken breasts trimmed almost totally lean, like 110 calories, 1g of fat, 25 of protein. It's nothing vegan going to approach that. Even 96% lean beef is 130, 24g protein 4g of fat and certain cuts of steak have 6g of fat. To get 24g of protein from raw almonds would be 655 calories, also bringing 57g of fat, and 22g of carbs laugh.gif

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.


Makes sense.  Going to have to give that a shot.  Guess I should invest in a better blender soon anyways.  Figured from a texture standpoint, it'd make it easier for it all to be processed by the blender, but I don't mind a small amount of "grit" lol.

 

This week I'll keep it simple.

 

Roast up some bone in chicken breast, probably make a stir fry of some sort, throw together a big salad, roast some veggies, and make some salmon.

 

Breakfast I usually wake up and do in the AM, not really a big fan of making that ahead of time unless I do oats.

Not even tryna come off as prick, but I guess thats the thing that caused tension in this thread, you have people in here for all different aspects which is a good thing. Lot of guys in here for health stuff and thats was sup. Me I`m tryna get shredded and look good, so that is why I hold Macros highly, that wont be important to someone who is trying to live till they are 300 years old. Me I want to live it up and look good when I am old. I cant play God, if its my time to go its my time to go, no diet can control that. There are people who smoke cigs every day and outlive someone who never touched a cig. We cant control life. If I dont actually enjoy something I wont do it plain and simple. My power to everyone who wants to be healthy though.

WHO suggested anything would touch it though. I am simply saying we are too focused on reaching X amount of grams of protein every day that we lose focus of the big picture. Healthy eating. Protein, Protein, Protein, Protein, Protein, Protein, Protein, is all a lot of you dudes think about.

I am not telling anyone to go vegan. I am not vegan. I am not a vegetarian. But I have days/meals where I don't consume meat. We don't need to eat meat with every meal to reach our goals.

But like I mentioned before, I love by bean consumption. I eat them 3+ days per week. Sometimes 4.

Again, I am not telling you to ditch chicken breasts. I am eating some tomorrow. I am just saying don't OD on meat.

And this whole, "Eh nothing will happen to you." Go get your cholesterol checked before you make that statement. It seems that people think something is only bad for you if it gives you INSTANT death/illness (quoting Lucky and other seem to agree).

Progression. Progression. Progression.

Increase veggie intake.

We can change the topic since people are getting irritated. MY BAD! pimp.gif
