Ok, I did some research on this, I read the articles (very informative), and got all fired up to get this done, and then I looked at the supplements and added up the price and from my estimates it would cost me $996. and some change to do this diet.
I know, you can’t put a price tag on your health, No pain no gain, You only get out what you put in…on and on…
I have a family, five children, three growing boys and two beautiful girls. I simply can not afford to spend that much on just me.
My question is, what are the alternatives? Now, let me make it clear, I don’t eat poorly, my wife is a sugar nazi. She does not allow sodas in the house or anything else. If it contains corn anything, she starts going into shock. Yet, I just can not seem to lose weight.
I’ve tried the zone diet, the runners diet, ripped fuel, and many, many other diets and diet tools. You all were very helpful with your info on my workouts and energy issues. I think part of the problem with my workouts starts with the diet.
I know I need 1500 to 2000 calories a day. This is by using the formula for the V-Diet. It actually comes out to 2010.3 for regular days, and 2412.36 for lifting days. Now if I want to lose over 35 lbs, then it would be 1608.24 for regular days and 1929.8 for lifting days.
I figured if I go with the 1500-2000 calories then I just need to get a meal plan. Can anyone suggest a computer program which I can use to build a good diet. I need to be able to look at the calendar and see what I need for each meal. I can’t go with the ok, you have 500 calories for lunch, now build your menu around that.
I guess what i’m looking for is a program that I just enter the info and it kicks out a menu for the coming week/month, which is already taking into account the caloric needs. Or, if anyone knows of a good program. I have read a lot of good info on here but no one really puts out what the menu’s were that they were using.
