"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Hi David...just a question about your training, do you feel energetic when you train? And do you eat anything pre/post workout?

Cheers mate

LMAO!!! That is classic!

This idea is really starting to get my interest. I love dinner and by trying to lean up, Ive hated holding myself up when there is still food on the table.


I can relate to that! It makes me feel bad to leave tiny rests of every/anything let alone to throw it away!

Throwing away good food! One of the biggest crimes I can imagine!!!!

I feel *more* energetic, oddly enough. I used to feel completely wasted after lifting, but now I walk out feeling as if I could do it again. However, that's partially attributable to switching to NTF, and may not have anything to do with diet. I don't worry about pre/post workout; I just eat when I get hungry, in the morning and sometime towards midday, then again before bed.

Cheers

Yeah you think we would get used to it. I think he's right maybe 5-10 percent of the time but no more.

i wrote in another post

I am going to see how it works out but man last night was great. We had a clam bake at work and it was my big meal of the day. So i started out with some salad and a little dressing and then on to the marinated grilled chicken and man did i destroy this. I went it ate and mingled and had a great time without thinking about food.

I got up this morning after a excellent nights sleep and didn't feel bloated at all.

I am very much hoping this change in diet ( not my training) will aid in the life little pleasures i gues you would say.

If diet did not play a role in life then everyone would have a great life but it's sometimes not the case.

I forgot to write this but i have noticed when i work out in the morning it left me dragging. So today instead of using the working out i am going to lift after work instead. So far today i am doing fine and i think my body is starting to get used to this way of eating.

What about everyone else doing this whats a normal day look like in way of eating a certain time and working out being lifting or cardio.

Thanx again guys for the advice

1-3 sets NTF. I don't really care about failure any more--just progression. And I find that the two are apparently not linked. Not for me, anyway.

Hey you got a nice schedule down and the "cardio" is one of the best. You don't hear people write about this kind of "cardio" just someone ( cherry/seasame) write about running. Well run away.

Nice here is a typical workout day for me.

I do not like working out in the morning but i am up so i do it.

5:00 up and hitting the weights for about 30 minutes.

5:30 eat something light with carbs and protien.

9:00 banana or two hard-boiled eggs with celery

between 12-2 banana or two hard-boiled eggs with celery

4 ( if hungry) some sort of berries and about a cup of that

6:30-? go home start with salad with tons of vegetables, then on to some fish/chicken/turkey and then if hungry after some bread or a large bowl of rice.

9:30-10 hit the bed and out in 5 minutes


For a non workout day (and if lucky) switch the weights and do "cardio" instead lol

Yep, no running for me!
But my "cardio" has some good amount of "speed-training", talking about "explosive movements"! LOL

HAHA i'm loving that ish man. Indeed lots of speed traning and you work up a good sweat as well but a good sweat ya know.

AHHHHHHH the pleasures of good ol fashion "Cardio". Brings a sense of accomplishment at the end.

HAHAHA


One thing i have noticed is the amount of energy i have. I know eating a bunch of small meals is the norm but i eat very little during the day maybe like 500 calories or so and i am not tired as i usually would be.

I just think it's an odd thing and have no clue why it works this way but hell i will stick with.

So in a few more days maybe sunday or so i will give a decision if i will try it for another week then work from there.

So far today is going great eating this way of 1 big meal a day. But i found that i do better with actually less food during the day. I read through the thread and found most the people that eat like this eat very little during the day. SO i tried it and since 5 this morning i have only have a banana, 2 string cheeses and some berries and that is it. I will be home at 6 or so and eat my big meal.

I am afraid i will be tired when i go out but i'll see how it goes.

All in all it's amazing how it works having more energy with less food in the system. But the verdict is still out until i do the measurements.

i took this approach 3-4 months ago in an effort to get my BF% below 8% and it has worked for me.
i count calories every single day of the week.
mostly protein and fat during the day, little carbs.
very energized and very lean at age 50.
i 'save' most of my calories for the evening when i'm at home and relaxed.
this approach allows me to keep overall daily cals in the 2000- 2400 range.
in the past i'd invariably be around 3000 cals by eating 'normally' during the day.


Jack i forgot to ask you what is your workout like. I see ciccio does high intensity training and another does NTF syle.

What about you what do you do for a normal workout during the week.

Also do you ea the same calories every day even if you do not workout ( cardio or lifting weights).

Also your big meal of the night. Whats a typical menu look like. Are you a low-carb guy?

Well i have done this "diet" for about 10 days or so i am thinking.

I got to say i like it so far, i have lost some fat but it was the start of something new but it still made me happy.

I have more energy during the day, sometimes to the point i am not sure what to do with it.

But i like it i do not get hungry during the day and at night i can eat a big meal of clean foods and the next morning wake up and not bloated and "feeling" lighter.

So the verdict is still ou on it but so far this eating plan and h.i.t is doing just fine for me.

Yeah i could. It's odd eating so much at night and not gaining when you wake up. I try to do something before the meal but if i don't no big deal. I am also taking jack32 suggestion and counting calories so i do not go overboard

Sure, it's still total calories what counts but I found it very difficult to go overboard with this method if you eat healthy mostly none processed foods, avoiding too much fats and simple carbs(white bred/pasta/rice).

very true. I'll stick with calories for now and see how it goes. So even on you days of not lifting you find you do not get fatter/heavier eating this way.

I mean do sometimes not do and excersise before the eating.

I got a question for you. Say you have some chicken how many ounces do you think you eat at one sitting. I am trying to get a gauge at how much people eat as well during the big meal. also how many carbs if you got a chance.
