I’ve done paleo/low-carb before and i can honestly say it’s a waste of time/energy.

Sure, you burn fat. That’s undeniable. But with any proper diet and exercise you will have similar results & you will feel energetic, healthy, & strong (unlike low-carb). But to each his/her own. Mine:

Diet on a typical day:
-Breakfast: 5 egg whites, 1/2 turkey slice, 1/2 cup mushrooms (if I have), 1-2 oz reduced fat provolone cheese, 1 low-carb tortilla/1 mini whole wheat sandwich bun, 0 calorie butter spray
-Post-breakfast: 1 mini whole wheat sandwich bun, 1.5 tbsp almond butter, 1/4 cup frozen berries/ fresh strawberries
-Lunch: 1 mini whole wheat bun w/ 3 egg whites & 2 slices turkey OR 1/2 sandwich (turkey, lettuce, low-cal mayo, tomato, mustard, sometimes avacado)
-Post-lunch: protein bar or protein shake & fruit
-Post-workout: small fruit & protein shake
-Dinner: veggie burger often w/ green veggies.

Supplements: EFA (essential fatty acids [3, 6, 9], BCAA’s during workout, whey protein, F1 performance vitamins, creatine @ morning & post workout.

Current regiment (cutting):
monday: full-body depletion workout (sets of 3×15, slow rep)
tuesday: 15 mins of HIIT (1:2 intensity ratio)
wednesday [carb refeed]: full-body strength training (sets of 3×6, fast rep)
thursday: rest
friday: full-body tension (3×8-10, normal rep)
saturday: 15 mins of HIIT (1:2)
sunday: rest

Thursday: Morning rites, SMW*

Friday: Morning rites, 30 min heavy weight lifting

Lots of fruit and veggies, lots of slow carbohydrates and protein (milk based) before sleepytime.

I try to do yoga everyday for an hour, weightlifting biweekly and I am training for a marathon.

But in a sense, they are all extensions to my meditation practice :)

Breakfast: 3 egg white/1 whole egg omelet, whole grain toast with peanut butter and honey, greek yoghurt, orange juice/aloe vera juice mix. If I have fruit it’s usually a lemon or a plumcot (just discovered plumcots, not sure what, if any, nutritional value they have but they are delicious)
Lunch: Spinach salad with light italian dressing. Some croutons, cheese, if I have some left over chicken I’ll throw that on there.
Dinner: Meat (any) I try to keep it organic, lots of chicken, I recently tried organic, grass fed bison meat, loved it. Mixed vegetables.

Regimen: I hate the gym, probably haven’t been in almost 3 years now. I find it’s too easy, for me at least, to get bored, hit a plateau, etc… So I do stuff that I find enjoyable, any activity that is fun, I play soccer every week and try to practice every day. Every morning I do roughly 30 minutes of a combination of some yoga positions/rites/stretches that I’ve picked up along the way. Then just lots of body weight exercises: pull ups, push ups, lunges, squats, etc. The only pieces of equipment I use are medicine balls and my kettle bell. I just try to change it up and keep it fun and interesting. Post workout I like chocolate milk.

Mondays are my off day, so 2-3 miles with the daily pushups pullups situps etc. Yoga in the PM
Tuesdays: 7-8 miles at 7:30 pace, Cross train 1.5 hours on the bike in the PM, and then upper body in the gym for about an hour
Wednesday: 5-6 miles at 7:45-8 pace, Yoga in the PM
Thursday: repeat of Tuesday, but with 45min of swimming in the PM as well as yoga, and sometimes lower body in the gym, depending on how I feel
Friday: repeat of wednesday,
Saturday: long run 12 miles now, building up every week
Sunday: mile repeats x5 at 7:10 pace, 2 minute recovery,
total mileage is 45-50, 2 hours in the gym, 3 hours of yoga, plus the 2 hours of cross training
I don’t really worry about diet until I get closer to race days. This is also a step down from what I did when I was training for cycling. That was close to 30 hours a week.

Boxing and lifting all the damn time. Eating as much as I want (except before fights when I have to make weight) but it is all good food for the most part.

I do a metabolic typing diet and eat things like muscle meats, milk, fish, gelatin, undergound veg, apple sauce, squeezed orange juice, pickling salt, coconut oil & water and rapadura sugar. – 5-6 meals per day. My health went from 3/10 to 9/10 in 4 months with this diet.
