Wrote a couple of posts on a newly researched two day diet and how its basically more effective then straight 7 day calorie deficits. Very interesting research and the details are in my articles.
Decided to do some cardio today since the weather was so nice. I’m going to condense my weight training workouts into 4 days a week and make the other days cardio days. The new routine will be very similar, but I’m getting rid of the Legs and Biceps day.
Nutrition wise I decided to kick off the week with a low calorie days that I was referring to in my articles. I always make sure to do the 1-2 low calorie days on a non-lifting day. I ate a Quest Bar for Breakfast with coffee, went for a run, had a protein shake with blueberries, almond milk and a ton of ice and some smoked salmon for lunch. Then for dinner I had 2 chicken breasts with a ton of vegetable (onions, broccoli and spinach) and some low calorie condiments. Came in around 1000 calories and don’t feel hungry at all. Tomorrow though its back to my normal calorie diet and a back/shoulders/bicep workout. Since my goal is to gain muscle I’m probably just going to do one of those low calorie days a week. I chose today, because of two days in a row of less than optimal eating.
