September 1st. It has begun.
… What have I got myself into?
Now that that’s over with, I am honestly a little excited. Now, I have climbed a mountain, fired a gun, assisted with tornado cleanup and recovery … but I am honestly feeling kind of adventurous today. This is really something that I never thought I’d be attempting, and is related to something I love very much: meat.
The Farewell to Meat Extravaganza was a great success, if I must say so myelf, and I will not disclose here how many ounces of Ribeye steak I actually consumed. Suffice it to say, it will probably last me a while.
So, I wanted to share with you all today, basically on how I am going to “cover all my bases” as far as protein, essential oils and fats, fiber, carbohydrates, and other essential nutrients.
Protien (Along with essential oils and fats)-
There was more than I originally anticipated in this area as means to gain the 40-50g needed daily (as recommended by the people who recommend things). As a result of feedback, I have rescinded my aversion to tofu, and my wife actually bought some, we’ll se how that goes.
Sources: Egg (6g), 2% Milk, Cheese, Yogurt (Greek 12g, Normal 3-6g), Nuts (6g per 1/4 cup), and various nut butters, beans, and soy.
Other Stuff (Fiber, Carbs, and simple sugars):
This area is about balance. Balance between simple sugars (from fruits and such) to more complex things (from whole grains, starchy vegetables, etc.)
I will attempt in the weeks to come (in addition to posts on other goals in process) to write about various meal plans for some of my days.
Oh, did I mention I am back in school? Anatomy and Physiology is fun …. yeah ….
Have a Happy Labor Day!
