Going to Vegas for 4 Days, Diet?

I’ll be leaving early Friday for Vegas and will be there until Monday. Should I be worried about my diet being shot to hell for these four days? I’ll most likely plan accordingly when it comes to my meals down there. I’ll probably bring some protein powder, not on my carry on, with me to take when I’m back at the hotel room. Maybe invest in some protein bars and carry 1 or 2 around with me? lol

Any tips from you guys who’ve been on vacations and still tried to somewhat follow your diet? Or do you say screw it and do whatever??

Bring bars and shakes. Make your three meals healthy when you order.

How would completely blowing your diet for four days straight be a good idea?

Vegas has some of the best food in the country, just be smart. There are plenty of high quality buffets that allow you to maintain every aspect of your normal diet through the vast array of food they provide. It’s not like you have to eat the strippers and casino chips, there is plenty off good food down there. Be smart, be specific with your orders, keep your discipline, and you will feel much better, both mentally and physically.

You’re going to Vegas, bring condoms.

I guess if you’re brining holymac you won’t need condoms. He’ll be your stunt cock, cause hes a team player.

Thanks, all good advice, especially the condom advice. haha I’m probably worrying too much about it, it shouldn’t be hard to maintain my diet in Vegas. I’m probably going to head to my local GNC or Walmart to pick up some bars tomorrow (can’t wait to order online). Any advice on which bars to get? What is your guys take on the Supreme Carb Conscious bars?

WestCoast read my mind. I saw this and the first thing that popped into my head was buffets. Condoms are a staple.

In my experience, whenever I grossly fuck up my diet for, say, a week or so, I see the greatest surcompensation effects after an extended period of training and dieting. In this case, a healthy addition of hookers and blow to your diet may benefit you greatly. Probably the combination of a serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor and the caloric deficit incurred from prolonged hours of wild sex may have a synergistic positive effect on lipid levels without depleting your glycogen stores.

Vegas?

If youre doing it correctly, it will be a struggle just to survive.

And hit the buffet! Yeeeeehaw!

This. The breakfast and dinner buffets have all the clean healthy food you can possibly eat.

And ditch the sticky, chalky protein bars and eat some real meat, fish, fowl and eggs. Bars are for when there is absolutely no food available.

This is all the advice you need.

booze and cocaine.

QFT. It’s VEGAS dude. Concentrate on hitting 16 when the dealer shows a 10 and getting as many top shelf drinks as possible before you go broke. I recommend learning how to play Pai Gow…best drinking game in Vegas.

I always try to keep carbs low-ish if I’m not training - which would include something like a trip to Vegas.

On the other hand, it IS Vegas.

squats and milk enjoy life eat man

wtf are you guys serious. HAVE FUN. EAT WHATEVER. DRINK LOTS OF BOOZE!!!

This.

If you are training your ass off and eating well 90% of the year, a few days of anything you want won’t hurt. I’m not talking about bingeing (sp?) on Krispy Kreams but fuck man live a little.

When I went to Mexico for a week, my diet consisted of tequila, beer, enchiladas and tacos (in that order). I came back and hit PRs in almost everything, and weighed about a pound or two more. Didn’t even do any weight training… only GP stuff during that week.

Live it up!

Bring the protein bars and just use the wrapper as a condom.
