So on Chaos and Pain he has written a series of blogs about what he is calling the predator diet. Basically he utilizes a ton of protein shakes and meat. I am going to try something similar. He also has three versions depending how much fat you have. Basically if you are fat you have one food meal a day the rest shakes. If your are kinda lean you get 2 meals on some days, 1 meal on another. Also uses fasting with these phases. I plan on using what he suggests for very lean people, I just think it is easier.
Basically it is 4-6 shakes a day, one food meal mid day of meat. And then one large meal in the evening. Here is my basic plan. He also suggests a heavy dose of stimulants, so I will be utilizing a caffeine pill also in the morning.
730-8am- protein shake 40 grams
10 am- protein shake
noon-midday meal-some meat and veggies, possibly like a salad or something, this will probably be mostly chicken since it is easy
5 pm-handful of nuts on my way home
7-8pm-post workout big meal, lots of meat. Mostly beef.
this is a tentative plan right now, I want to see how it affects my energy levels and strength levels. I am kinda planning on doing this for a while and then going straight into carb backloading, and figuring out which works better. Need to get my low carb mindset back and start cooking in bulk again!! I am also going to be taking a lot of fish oil and possibly throwing in some olive oil with protein shakes to make sure i get enough calories
What do you guys think? I have never had this many protein shakes in a day before.
you probably should use Isolate not concentrate in your shakes you could easily turn this into a ketogenic state so that you avoid headaches and other issues with limiting glucose
I've been doing about the same thing for 3 years, except without the mid day meal. I eat a big meal at 5 pm, and a small meal at 8pm. My meals are Paleo-ish, and on the weekends I carb up usually 1-2 days.
I drink 5 shakes in coffee/water from 7am to 5pm.
Works great for me.
I use whatever whey is cheapest/on sale, trying to get the lowest carb of course. Isolate isn't always cheap. I use fish pil with every shake, as well as some BCAAs.
I will also be using pretty the cheapest whey I can find. C&P suggests a blend, so it is not absorbed as quickly. Probably after 1-2 weeks I will start using a cheat window. It will probably be friday night or saturday night.
I think this diet will be pretty easy, and hopefully effective. I am feeling very out of shape and heavy right now. But that is usual after a winter of eating anything I want.
It's funny you bring this up because I was talking to Bruteforce recently saying we should give this eating style a fancy name and package it. We were joking of course.
Of course C&P has made it much more complicated being the crazy guy he is by doing intermittent fasting and rotating carbs. He suggests a full day carb load with moderate carbs during the day and then a "rampage" for one meal where you eat whatever you want.
I am looking forward to this new adventure
