So, basically, I’ve got a quick question for everyone who’s knowledgeable. I’m looking to drop about 10 lbs of fat without losing muscle, and I’m not in a position to do the Velocity diet. I currently lift every other day, and in between lifts, I have boxing/kickboxing. Now, each of these boxing workouts is faily intense, and burns between 800 and 1000 calories.
I tried being on the V-Diet and still accomplishing these, but it just wasnt working. So I’m segwaying into a diet that still has a few Metabolic Drive shakes spread throughout the day, but for some energy, I want to mix in a real meal that incorporates some carbs and fat to be eaten around lunch time. My question is, assuming the rest of my diet is strict, is sushi a solid choice? I know 1-2 tuna, yellowtail, california rolls give me a very nice energy boost and fill me up pretty well, and from what I can tell, about 10 pieces of sushi only totals 300ish calories, at the very max depending how its made, maybe 500. it still remains high in protein, has maybe 30-40 carbs, and is low in sugar. however, the sodium is rather high.
what are T-Nation’s thoughts on sushi in terms of mixing it into an otherwise very controlled and low-carb diet?
