What's your take on eating hard-boiled eggs compared to eating them raw? Also, does boiling them and storing them in the fridge reduce the amount of protein gained or not?

By the way... I am going no-grain starting today! WIll let ya know my impressions.

Update (T.M.I.)

Aftter three days of  Paleolithic eating I have this to report. My turds are now floating on the top of the water like bouyant lil logs and my shit dont  stink so much. This could really help with the congruence in my "I like my salad tossed  vigorously" opener.

I have on very stupid question about fitness, I dunno even whether it is fitness or not, but I don't know where to get answer to this, so I am asking here. I have been training hard for the last few years. I used to be not fat, but a bit iver the average weight, anyyways, I have lost about 10 kilograms, mostly fat from my stomach, the problem is now I have gotten myself pretty unproportional, I am very thin at the stomach, but there is a lot of fat on my ass and on my thigs, so I look fat from when persons look from the back. Any suggestions how to lose fat from thigs and ass?:D Very unmanly question, but I didn't know other place to ask from.

Thanks, John.

ok so i am very determined to lose my beer belly, so im gonna try your grain free diet out.

other questions i have are.

I am pressed for time since i have a busy school/work schedule so in order to do cardio im thinking about switching from split body training to full body training so i can do that like every other day and do cardio in between days. what are your thoughts on that?

if you do think full body workouts are a good idea, how do i do them? do i do the exact same workout every other day or still do like certain body parts like chest/trice/shoulders one day and back bic legs etc the other day.

what kind of cardio is best to lose fat?

can you elaborate on foods to eat and foods that contain grain?

im guessing oatmeal,cereal, pasta, rice, bread have grains. thats all i can really think of.

also, whats your take on taking fiber pills or fibermucil??

Sam, this is my 9th day off the grains. My daily eating looks something like this:

7am - banana and apple
7.15am - 3 whole eggs hard boiled and 30ml UDO choice oil blends

11am - chicken breast and apple

2pm - cup of mixed nuts

5pm - honey, olive oil shot, whey protein with water

5.30 - 7 train

7 - as pre workout

8pm - salmon with bacon/turkey/beef/chicken/tuna and brocolli/carrot other veg (ocassionally been having yams)

before bed - some cottage cheese and casseein protein powder


So far feeling great with a lot of energy. Felt like shit a few times the first few days but read this was normal.
Questions:
1. I read it was probably OK to eat oats provided they were treated correctly before hand (soaked overnight) - any thoughts? I used to find oats a really convinient way of boosting calorie intake so would idealy reintroduce them, without the negative side effects.

2. Any alternatives to the eggs? I know results come from eating for performance and not taste but fuck I hate shoving those things down my throat first thing on a morning. Usually I heave when im eating them which cant be a good thing.

3. Any thoughts on healthy home made MRP/bars that can be made as a snack while out and about/after club etc?

Cheers Sam

First of all I'm going to get to everyones questions SOON. So stay tuned.

Awesome plan man! What results have you noticed? When I started doing this I lost the mid day 'cloudy mind,' my results from the gym went off the hook, my energy level sustained throughout the day. My stomach fat almost immediately began to fade away. I wasn't hungry. No energy level 'ups' and 'downs'. etc. It was incredible. Same experience?

1. I'm up in the air on oats. I'm to the point where processed sugars and wheat products should be eliminated for ALL people. However, with oats, rice, other grains such as barley, I'm not sure. I think it may just totally depend on the individual. Give oats a try (assuming they are cooked or prepared correctly), but pay CLOSE attention to what they are doing to you. Digestion? Energy? Crashes? Clear minded?

2. Get organic, and mix them up raw with some milk. Seriously isn't bad tasting. Way better than choking down boiled ones. PLUS, they will be digested more easily and effectively. 

3. No thoughts man. Make sure the ingredients come from nature. That's my only suggestion. 


"Merging Health and Fitness" what do you think of that for my slogan? haha

In regards to this. I'm assuming your going to make this by mixing either whey protein or casien protein into it and then cooking it in the oven or something similar? If so this wont work. Reason is, the protein is made using a cold-process so that its not damaged. If you go ahead and heat up the protein, it will damage it.

Best thing to do is have a MRP with you and shake it up with some water or milk and drink up after club or whatever. Or alternative is to buy protein bars.

Awesome thread here. So much good info.  Thanks.

Anyway, I saw some guys asking about good workouts and cardio. All I can say is: try crossfit for a few months.

I signed up for a quasi-crossfit program at my gym, not really knowing what it was. The results were pretty sick.

Now that I'm back home I signed up for a bonafide crossfit program. It's intense, but worth it. I'm a believer.

I don't know the guy in the video, but his results are fairly typical from what I've seen.  At a year mark, you'll be in better shape and have the build of someone who's been working out casually for most of his life.  Plus, you'll spend about half the time in the gym.

Yeah, I always used to eat stereotypical healthy. Lean meats, wholegrain carbs, careful on the fats and dairy. Usual high carb, medium protien and low fat affair. But I never really felt *great*. I mean I did OK, but i'd find myself having afternoon naps if possible or if I was at work I'd just spend the afternoon in an unproductive fog. To top it all my blood pressure was usually through the roof, cholesterol wasn't great and I had a beer belly the middle aged men in the pub would be proud of.

I think removing the grains has worked great. I actually sleep a lot less now (average 2 hours less per night) and am ready to go on a morning straight away. I wouldn't say I'm bouncing off the walls through the day but my energy is constant and I'm chilled. Before I was up and down (read eratic) and often times moody in one way or another. There were a few nights last week after 'the switch' where I felt shitty (disorienated, weak etc) but now is all OK. 'Bags' under my eyes have reduced, complexion is a lot clearer and the line down the middle of my tongue and 'teeth' marks on it have disappeared, which many associate with a deficiancy in such-and-such a mineral or vitamin.

My hunger is good. it feels healthy. If I don't eat in 4 hours I feel the need but it's not like carb hunger where you crave. I guess even on high carbs you're still a fat fuck munching on carbs constantly, wholegrain or not. I still get cravings but they are easily satisfied with a small carrot or even the tiniest drop of honey on the tip of my tongue. I think it's psychological.


Regarding the eggs - I hope you're saying it's ok to blend them raw with some milk. Fucking hate eating those things hard boiled on a morning. I'd rather eat my duvet.

"Merging health and fitness" - yeah. I like this because I think it's more important than most people would realise, most of the bodybuilder nutrition is fucking dreadful for your health I can imagine. Especially 'bulking'. I used to take in so much salt and sugar just through bread and cereals alone becaus I thought it was necessary to put on some mass. Fuck that. For this reason, bodybuilding must be the most vain sport going.
