So, I order the Berardi DVD and I'm looking at the protein requirements for the losing fat recommendation... and he has you eating approx 240 g of protein from 2 cups egg whites, 12 oz lean beef and 8 oz chicken, plus some cottage cheese.
Now, the only thing on there I actually like to eat is red meat. Egg whites make me gag and I'd much rather have a shake in the morning. I'd rather have a shake than chicken. So, my question is, how much of this daily meat intake can I replace with nice Low-Carb Grow! shakes?
I know, I know, I'm supposed to eat "real" food. I'm just not sure why. Vegatables and fruit, I understand. But what nutrients do chicken or egg whites or beef have that I couldn't get with Grow! and a vitamin plus healthy fat like fish oil?
Plus, I get tired of cooking. So, if I could (and I guess I can since I'm an adult, sort of), I would have Grow shakes with just about every meal as my protein source.
Yet something tells me that's a bad idea...
Phill? Anybody? What are the problems with this plan? And how much delicious Grow! can I imbibe a day on a regular basis as part of a healthy diet?
For the record, I'm 43, 6'1, 211 and at about 15% bf. My goal is to get to 10% or less. Abs, veins, that sort of thing...
