My girlfriend has been on the T-Dawg diet for about a month now. She is eating well and keeping a good food log, but progress is kind of slow, about a 1/2 pound per week. I thought i might list some of her eating log here, and ask a few questions that maybe you can help me with.
Her diet requiements are:
Protien 135 gr/day
workout day 100 gr
non-work 70 gr
I'll lay out one of her workout days using the Cal/Pr/Carb/Fat template that T-mag suggests.
Workout Day sample
Kashi and 1% milk
2/3 cup veggies
3.5oz Pork chop
My first concern when we started all this was adequete protien intake. I havn't had any luck finding a protien powder she likes. Though on paper she usually meets or exceeds what she needs, i think we may be counting some stuff wrong. Should it only be counted from sources that you know have good muscle building protien, like chicken and MRP's? Or should you count every little gram of protien in everything you eat?
On a fat loss diet such as T-dawg is protien as neccessary as on a muscle building diet? I have read that protien helps to lean you out and reduces cravings.
She has talked about wanting to try Hot Rox sometime soon. She has never taken a fat burner before, so she is kind of tentative.
Anyways, sorry for the long winded post. If anyone can offer any suggestions or sees something i am missing let me know.
