To Mr Nasty “To be a Viking you have to eat like a Viking.” Forget about all this Low Cal/FAT food and start eating Regular foods. You diet looks great for someone who is ‘Cutting’ but not Bulking”. You just may need more fat in your diet. You maybe like me (or maybe not). I can suck up pig fat all day and have cholesterol levels in and around 175 +-. Lets try eating whatever the hell you want (with a few exceptions). Not far from where I live is a slaughter house/butchery where I go and stock up On some fine cuts of beef. Here is what I had last night ……… Large t-bone ,green beans w/ mushrooms, sweet potato, macaroni with cheese and a beer to wash it down . burrrrp I’m 51yo 6’1” 210 lb and can work circles around people ½ my age. Do you have a goal on what/where you want to be in a given time period? Let me give you an example of how easy it is to deprive yourself from the necessary caloric intake to lose A pound of muscle contains 600 cal. That being true… To gain 1 pound of muscle a month, and to make a total gain of 12 pounds of muscle a year you would you have to increase your caloric intake by 600 cal’s a month then multiply by 12(one year) or 7200 additional cal’s in one year over and above your maintenance caloric intake just to gain one pound of muscle a month. That’s only 19 additional cals a day. But the opposite holds true as well. To Lose 1lb of muscle a month all you got to do in deprive yourself that 600 cals a month or 19 cal’s a day and your gonna lose that hard earned muscle. Starting eating like a Viking and Hit the weights like Thor!
