Until my plan arrives, help me prestart?
When I did LAWL years ago, I was on Red (plus?). I remember the intake as this:
PPPp (3.5 proteins; P=8oz chicken, 7 oz pork or turkey, 5 oz beef or fatty fish)
VVVV (4 veggies, usually lower carb ones, generally 1 cup)
SSS (3 or was it 4 starches. 1 starch = 1/2 english muffin, 1/2c pasta , etc.)
FFFF (4 fruits, usually lower sugar ones)
ff (2 fats, 1 f=1 tbsp olive oil, butter, etc.)
dd (2 dairy, d=8 oz low fat yogurt)
8 8oz water
Does that sound about right?
I'm trying to retrain my brain from Atkins. In comparison, it seems this is moderate carb (100g or less) and low fat. Agree?
Any advice? I want to try to eat clean, so like no processed foods other than the lites (if I can handle them, I used to be triggered to eat more than 2)
I had been working out steadily for years, but am in a holding pattern on that due to injuries and health.
Any thoughts? Please share.
