I have read now a bunch of diet articles, specially of Berardi.
I got a few questions on it...:
-First the meals recommended are awful.Is it not possible to have a combo of good and healthy food?
I mean ex.like:
2 slices of bread
1 scoop of Grow!
1 cup of tuna
sorry folks but thats really NOT tasty.
Sure if you want to reach a goal you have to do sth.for it-its your choice what you do-and when you don?t want it LEAVE it-but are there no better options?
When you have a meal plan which is tasty AND healthy-the motivation is MUCH bigger to stick to it as long as you want!
Whats about sauces made out of wholemeal (flour),skim milk and spices-instead of cream?
Ist that unhealthy-i don?t think so!
2.5-7 meals per day.
Nothing new but understandable point.
But one thing I don?t get:
F.e.x you need 3000kcal per day.It will be better (sure it is) to eat 6 meals to 500 instead of 3 meals to 1000kcal.
Because when you eat the whole 1000ckal in one you perhaps need immediately 500 kcal-the rest will be nicely stored in fat.
BUT who cann ensure,that when you will eat 500kcal per meal,that you don?t need only 300 at the moment(depends on activity),and the other 200 will be stored in fat????
-3 The seven habbits, p+c,p+f meals.
I also got the point of this-sounds good BUT:
Berardi recommends to have your carbs mostly (post workout meals exluded)out of veggies and fruits-thats good and healthy-BUT it is not possible to consume 1000kcal of fruits or veggies.
They are that low caloric,that you have to eat 6 pounds (!)of carrots f.ex.to reach the line.
Also are you not allowed to eat carbs alone-so if i want to eat two bananas in the afternoon,I have to drink them with milk or eat them with cheese or tuna,to have a p+c meal?
On the other hand,Whats about rice and pasta,why are they THAT bad when combinated well?
If you eat lean beef,with basmati rice,some veggies and a sauce out of mushrooms,skim milk and wholemeal (flour)and some spices.Thats mjami a p+c meal with min.fat and it does taste good-INDEED!
Hope of some FEEDbacks;)
