    Sup fellas, I'm back with another important set of questions.

    First of all i've been getting into my local Crossfit Gym training with a couple of the fellas there (80$/mth) And my goal is to be a leaner, stronger guy in time for the beach in the summer time and onward in the future of course.

    Goal: Leaner,Stronger,Faster, that sorta deal.

    My trainer suggested that this month i just eat whatever i want and continue to workout and see what my body does, I'm hoping that i don't blow up and at the same time continue to grow stronger.

    Now i currently have an empty kitchen, i haven't been grocery shopping since october really and my supplies are just about up, i have nothing but bologna, and cheese now. In addition, i have some Smart Start(really great) cereal but no milk of course. I've been getting by on hash browns(out of now :() and eggs and bologna.

    I figured I'm at the perfect moment to go shopping and stick to my workout regiment as well as maintain a nice diet at the same time.

    Im not opposed to taking supplements(never have) but i don't want to just be paying for a name without getting results, but from what i've heard supplements are a placebo really. If anyone has any good suggestions i'd appreciate that.

    I don't have a blender, and i'll prob want to invest in one in case i have to make shakes or something.

    Thanks again everyone for the help

    Cam

    this. Stick to the outside isles at the grocery store for the most part.

    Also sweet potatoes are great for you.
    Nuts - good source of natural fats.
    If you still want milk go with organic or almond milk

    If you dont have a crockpot you should get one. Makes cooking and prepping meals much easier. Throw whatever in it in the morning and it will be done when you get home from work. Or use before bed and will be ready in the morning.

    IS there anything i can sub for the black beans... :anonymous:

    I have lactaid milk(I'm lactose-intolerant) that i picked up today. So for the most part just stick to un processed foods and i should be good to go? There's a farmers market in town i'll just go there to pick up the goods.

    What can i make with the sweet potatoes? I have white potatoes though...

    I'll make sure to stock up on nuts as well, got a crockpot already too :thumbsup:

    Prepping meals.. how would i go about doing that in combination with the crockpot?

    sub green beans in place of black beans...haha Im not a bean eater but Ill eat the green kind. Fresh though, none of that canned shit.

    When I do sweet potatoes Ill either slice it up thin and cook in a skillet with coconut oil and season with Mrs Dash (they are all salt free and have lots of flavors). Or I will slice into spears and bake them. Coat each side with a little coconut oil and then add cinimon and honey to taste.

    White potatoes are ok but if wanting to lose weight i would avoid for the most part.

    Ive got lots of tupperware that I will pack meals into to take to work. Prep 3 or 4 meals on sunday that way I will have lunch for the week, then eat out on friday. I will make one or two proteins (grilled chicken, talapia, or turkey burgers), a carb would be either brown rice or sweet potatoe, then a big pile of veggies, green beans or a spinach salad or mixed grilled veggies (squash, zuchini, red bell peppers)

    Throw some bacon on top when you bake them instead of coconut oil....

    BTW how do most of u guys food prep? Is it by setting up all your meals and seasoning and when your ready to eat say dinner you cook it? I tried a Sunday and cooked all my meals for the week but by the end of the week everything wasn't in such good shape.

    I do literally no running/cardio. Since the beginning of December, I've been on a diet to loose weight (my cut, starting at 225) and as of today, I'm 207. 17 pounds lost. Although, I was just coming off a bulk, so a good piece was water weight, and I'm young, but regardless I am pulling it off with no cardio.
    All it takes is a nice, planned out diet. Basic science of it is: You go in a caloric deficit, you will lose weight.

    I use a plan based off the suggestions of Alan Aragon, the dietary adviser for Men's Health. It's easy to follow, easy to track, and easy to prep.
    Here it is:
    Every day eat two servings of:
    1 palm size piece of protein like eggs, chicken, fish, or pork
    1 cup starch like brown rice, or sweet potatoes
    1 cup fibrous vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli or cauliflower
    1 cup of fruit like grapes or a banana
    1 small handful of nuts
    1 cup dairy like milk, yogurt, or a serving of cheese
    If you are working out heavily, add another serving of vegetables and protein.

    I'll usually cook every third or fourth day. The app "My Fitness Pal" helps track calories in and out.

    Made an awesome post-workout Starbucks Frappuccino knock-off protein shake.

    1 cup coffee iced
    1 cup reduced fat milk + 1 scoop vanilla protein
    starbucks pump caramel flavor
    coffee caramel

    Make coffee, add two pumps Starbucks caramel flavor and shake to chill
    pour into large cup, I used a 20 oz tumbler
    mix milk and protein powder
    pour slowly to layer over coffee
    drizzle about 1 tablespoon of caramel over top.
    enjoy.
