This one’s for anyone who knows what he/she’s talking about (I would like to hear from Mr. Willson though)…
I’m seventeen years old and I wanted to go on a mass gaining diet. Considering my current situation, I figured that The Skinny Bastard diet would fit me fairly well… but I have some questions about it. I’m a perfectionist type of guy so I could end up being pretty strict about something like a diet, so I know I could “handle” it.
First off, would every meal consist of a MRP? Or should one/two be “real” meals? I would probably end up eating the first 3-4 meals as an MRP because I would be taking it to school. I ask this because I hear a lot about eating “whole foods” and how it should be very important.
Second, at least one of the recommended meals seems to consist of MRP and sugar… does that mean that I could just mix in sugar with the shake or am I missing something (or could I do this with 1-2 meals)? I know that this diet is “different” but the lack of other kinds of carbs is kind of nagging at me.
Also, could I substitute Udo’s Choice in place of the fish oil capsules? And should I find some form of fiber (maybe before going to bed)?
I’ve heard a lot of things that seem to be stressed by many in T-Nation, like water consumption… but the article says that it would be best to avoid it (in the meals), so, for example, should I get several drinks of just water between meals? Any recommendations from you guys on this or any other part of the diet would be greatly appreciated. I basically don’t want to leave out anything important from my diet.
btw I could afford Grow!, Surge, Power Drive, Creatine, oil, “fat free cookies,” and my mom can prepare 1-2 meals a day, but that leaves me all but tapped out for the month, so I don’t know if I could afford something like Greens+… if you could provide me with price conscious choices I would be extra-thankful =)
Thanks in advance
