I’m suprised with all the talk about fat loss diets that there’s no talk about other dietery approaches to losing fat. I know the Anabolic Diet is very popular here, as well as the T-Dawg and even a lower fat diet. To be honest, none of these diets worked for me, I have and tried the Anabolic Diet, BodyOpus, Lyle’s Keto-Diet, and the T-dawg. I don’t know if I can’t metabolize fat as well but a low fat diet like Body-For-Life was even worse, tried it for a week and lost about 8 lbs, mostly muscle. So I am trying a different approach on my quest to reach contest-like condition. There is another approach that isn’t mentioned much here. Charles Poliquin uses it himself and on clients that can’t lose abdominal and chest fat (my problem). It’s mainly Lean protein every meal, some EFA such as Flax, fish oil, olive oil, etc, and 50g carbs from Fibrous green vegetables. Postworkout is just whey protein, and workout is german body comp. Every 5th day u get a free high carb meal and when your around 8%bf get a free cheat day. This approach is basically what Eric Serrano recommends, as well as Beverly International and Jay Robb in his Fat Burning Diet book, but carb meals are every 3 days and specific foods.
BTW, his book is basically what Bev Int seems to use as their fat loss diet. The rations are around 50-60%protein, 30-40%fat, and 20% carbs or less, usually much less. Anyway, anyone use this type of approach and if so what type of results have you seen? I’m following Poliquins recommendations that I got at his seminar. BTW, I’m doing 6meals, 3 scoops Ultimate Nutrition Protein post-workout. and 5 meals chicken or other lean meat, 1 tbsp flax or olive oil and 1 cup green beans. I weigh 235lbs, around 370-400g protein a day, about 100g fat, and 50g carbs. Any feedback would help, thanx
