Anonymous

You guys are gonna hate me for this, because I sound like a dork, but here is a Boxer's diet that I learned at Fort Bragg.

Instead of (3) meals a day, eat (6). Make each of these six meals about 1/3 of one of your original (3).

Eat 3 meals of mostly vegetables, eat 2 meals of mostly fruit, and one of an average size piece of meat with another fruit.

Try to drink plenty of water (about six glasses a day) and stay away from Mountain Dew, Pepsi, and Coca-Cola. Sprite, 7-Up, Dr. Pepper are fine but (1) a day, at most.


+++This diet will speed your metabolism while still providing you the nutrients, energy, and body strength you need for combat.+++

Six meals of large, or small portions? Are the meats lean, or just other types ( fish, chicken )...There should be large portions of vegetables over meat..meaning there should be one portion, or two small portions of meat and lots of vegetables, lots of fruits have citrus acids, so they're good to eat all the time. Water is great for you all the time..

You haven't mentioned any complex carbohydrates. I hope you're including some. Complex carbohydrates usually contain 9-11 essential nutrients (your body cannot store or produce these on their own)that you will lack if you eliminate carbohydrates. Carbs also affect your mood. Whatever you do, make sure you include them in your diet because of their importance.

Any whole grain bread, pasta, brown rice, or parboiled rice (the same thing as Uncle Ben's converted rice). These are some of the best sources of carbs. Yams are good as well.

Sorry, but I have to wholeheartedly disagree with this one. Grain bread and pasta and Uncle Ben's converted rice has about the dietary equivalent to your body as a Snicker's bar. These are high glycemic foods which will quicly raise your blood sugar, and then you will very quickly crash from your blood sugar high. You're okay with the brown rice, though.

This is form Atkinscenter.com regarding pasta:

Dr. Atkins: "Pasta alone is sufficient to prevent weight loss. Remember the principle: to be low enough in carbohydrate so that the body chooses fat as fuel. Baked potatoes also have a high glycemic index. These should be avoided."

Gotta agree with Ime88 on this one.

Any athlete needs complex carbs, but you have to be careful what type of complex carbs you choose; specifically, the GI (Glycemic Index). Plain pasta, white potatoes, white rice - these all have a high GI index, meaning they'll spike your insulin just like Ime88 explained.

Does this mean you should avoid potatoes and rice? Freak out about the GI index? Unless you are at the point of fine tuning your diet based on your level of training, I wouldn't worry too much about it...but it is another healthy choice that can be made, along with a bit of self-education.

Hello,
Please Corret me if I'm wrong, if You were eatting the high GI foods on their own it would spike Your insulin. If You were to eat, lets say baked potatoes with stir fried chicken and vegetables. Wouldnt the sitr fried meat and veg counteract the spike?

Alicia, I Agree. Yams (sweet potatoes)are a great source of complex carbs.
Cheers. Gary.

Hi, I'm new. Nice to meet you all.

Enough chit-chat, I'm here to get down to business.

I noticed that one chick mentioned stuff about parboiled rice, whole grains, yams and what-not.

Then I saw a bunch of replies about white rice, white potatoes, and white pasta.

Then I saw replies that used the freakin ATKINS diet as a source. Now THAT's credible. Eat FAT and you will lose weight. Get info from an anti-carb page. I'm hoping more people go on the Atkins diet and die of a heart attack (the more painful, the better) so that the stupid population of the world will decrease. I hate stupid people.

The post in question mentioned nothing that you inbred hicks commented on. Do people actually read posts before replying to them? I didn't think so. LOL.

Alicia had some good points on her WHOLE GRAIN BREAD AND PASTA, YAMS, and PARBOILED RICE.

I capitalized the important bits for you geniuses.

Thank you and good night. I'm here every Wednesday.
