    He’s not going to eat boiled chicken and broccoli for every meal. I think when you’re trying to do something like this you need to focus on the bigger picture. If he can find a plan where he’s around 2k calories a day, can maintain it long term, and it is fairly balanced he will have a lot of success.

    Happily I don't care for any chips except the ones that are TERRIBLE for me, so I simply cut them out.

    Carrots are also simple sugars where as Corn is not. Both maybe carbs but carrots breakdown in gut easier.

    Look, sport, you don't have to eat boiled chicken and broccoli every day. Twice a week ain't gonna kill you. And who the fk boils chicken? Boneless, skinless breast in the oven is the way to go. Potato chips are OUT. As a matter of fact stay out of the grocery section anyway; it's nothing but processed food and the majority of that is crap.

    But go into the grocery section to get your oils and spices, please. I go in for coffee, salt/spices/seasoning, oils, my baking needs, canned anchovies and tuna (chunk light in water, not in oil).

    Easy baked chicken breast/thigh:

    1 cup olive oil
    3-4 cloves of whole, peeled garlic
    3 tbsp of lemon juice
    Salt/pepper

    marinate overnight... bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes.

    Re: Calorie Counting

    One thing I haven't seen mentioned is carb cycling. Nothing super complex but basically just having a mix of low carb meals throughout the weak especially if you have some higher carb meals at other times. Like I'll sometimes eat a burrito bowl at Chipotle (which is already lower carb than a burrito because you don't get that 200 calorie tortilla) or greek food with rice/flat bread and so for dinner I might do something low carb like chicken/greens. Or maybe for lunch if I go to Potbelly I get a sandwich on flat bread instead of normal bread and cut 60+ useless calories that way. I might do that for lunch tomorrow as I plan to have pasta with red sauce/shrimp tonight. Lunch today we had a potluck with tacos but I just skipped the tortillas/chips.

    You don't have to totally overthink it or anything but basically it ensures that you don't totally overdo it on useless calories while also not going full no-carb fad diet.

    It's not like I avoid the groc section altogether, I'd be done shopping in 10 mins. Great looking recipe btw.

    Never heard of it. Thanks for the tip.

    Friday, 5/3:

    8" liverwurst sub, 600

    My pre-dinner calorie intake linear trendline between 4/2 and 5/3 has dropped from 1900 to 900, with an R2 of .2255. Mean systolic over the same period has dropped from 160 to 140.

    I actually feel more energetic so I'm thinking of getting on the bike this weekend.

    Not painful at all. The trick is to be honest and to report everything publicly. Shame works.

    Haha, I do like spinach myself. Although it took a slightly Thai version of a similar vegetable dish (Pad Pak Boong) to finally get me on board with cooked spinach.

    I have never had Thai food I didn't like. They could probably rehabilitate a lot of vegetables for me but I'm not sure whether stir fry defeats the whole purpose.

    I have a difficult time believing any of the Asian foods I love can be anything but lethal for me. Not that this stops me, you understand.
