Don't like counting food? Come on in!
Big Eating Made Simple:


A small bowl of porridge or cream of wheat
A piece of fruit
Eggs (at least four)
Big glass of milk


One standard size round plate

No heaping plates, unless you're a skinny bastard!

1/2 of the plate meat (of the red kind)
1/4 of the plate a starchy carb
1/4 of the plate starchy green veggies
Big glass of milk


Same as lunch.

Feel free to add snacks between meals and before bed, just make sure it's protein. If you have hollow legs, either have another plate, drink more milk, or have bigger snacks. If you're kind of fat like me, have a steak and eggs breakfast with fruit. Have a half of plate of veggies with BUTTER not margarine with your lunch and supper meals. Eat cheese with your meals instead of drinking milk, and limit the starchy carbs to post-workout on training days. If you can't gag down that waste they call protein powder use supper as your post-workout nutrition (what a novel idea). For example, have a half plate of meat and a half plate of potatoes. Don't be afraid to take a day out of the week to "treat" yourself to what ever you want to eat, it's your reward for working, lifting, and eating hard.

I like it, and it is simple for the new eater to understand.

my 2pence or pennies or lint in my pocket:

Breakfast: 3whole eggs (large), half onion, sausage(chopped) , 2 med. Potatoes (diced /sliced) chop onions and sautee, mix in potatoes and sausage (Zummos or breakfast). Cook until taters are near tender, toss in eggs and fold not scramble! (I took alot of culinary classes) salt and pepper to taste. Plate a bed of rice and add breakfast mixture. Enjoy

Snack: 32oz of Choco Milk and 1 lunchable = 1000cal snack

these are some of the secrets from the Gorilla Vault

I don't like counting either. When I am trying to cut weight I limit my dinner meal to a plateful.
