Real Men Don't Diet and Other Myths ...
The truth is, guys, we do diet -- the question is, how to make our diet enjoyable and keep our bodies the way we like them, and the way our partners like them! Following is a suggested diet pattern to help.
Essentially the diet plan is a high protein one, but not as extreme as the Atkins diet.
In the first phase of the diet (two weeks), you have the following:
Breakfast - 1 lean protein, 1 fruit, 1 starch/grain, unlimited light vegetables
Lunch - 3 lean protein, 1 fruit, 1 grain/starch, unlimited light vegetables
Dinner - 6 lean protein, unlimited light vegetables
Plus 1cup skim milk or yogurt and 3 servings unsaturated fat (oil, butter, peanut butter, mayonnaise)
"1 lean protein" is 1 oz. lean beef, lamb, chicken, fish, cheddar, 1 egg
"1 fruit" is generally 1 small fruit or 1/2 cup berries or juice
"1 grain/starch" is a small slice of bread, 1/2 bagel, 1/2 cup squash, beans, peas, pumpkin...
"Light vegetables" are things like green beans, lettuce, chinese cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, carrotts, eggplant, tomatoes (limited to one)
In stage 2 you add 1 starch/grain to dinner (you stay on this until you reach your desired weight)
The final stage is maintenance, and you add 3 fats (ie, higher fat meats, a small amount of butter) and 1 fruit
It's a healthy and liveable diet that most people should be able to follow!
