Default My New Diet Plan, Opinions Welcome!

Hi Everyone,

I have been skimming this forum for over a year (Iíve been researching health and nutrition for like 5 years off and on) and thereís been a ton of great information on here and support from all of you for others so I finally decided to register a few days ago.


I am starting a new diet today so I thought I would post it here and a few other places for support, motivation, and for your opinions.


I am a 27 year old male, 5 foot 10 inches tall, 234 lbs, and 32.7% bodyfat (I used the Navy bodyfat formula)


For my diet Iím going to be eating low carb, keeping my carb intake under 50g per day. If I stop losing weight then I may put calorie restrictions on it too but not right away.


For my workout Iím going to do P90X, from Beachbody. Most of you have probably seen the commercials. I live nowhere near a gym and would rather workout at home anyways. I canít do a pull-up so Iím going to use heavy bands instead lol. Hopefully by the end Iíll be able to do a few.


For my nutrition I am going to drink **********, also by Beachbody. Itís basically a meal replacement shake and a multivitamin in one. I figure with my low carb diet I wonít get the nutrition I need by myself so this should be a good supplement.


Wish me luck! I actually already did Day 1 of P90X today. Itís been a good wakeup so far for my body between finally being active, drinking more water than I have in months, and getting some vitamins in me lol.

my 2 tips:

1) Diet rite pop..it will save you on the days you crave a Coke
2) Eat Chia.. It helps fill you up..even added to the water bottle, can keep you full.

Thanks for the tips! I've only had Chia cappuccino or something like that and didn't really like it. Do you use tea or just like a supplement? I'll definately consider it if I start having hunger issues!

Hi Adam!

Just wanted to say hi from someone who lives just up the road! I'm just outside of Watertown!

At any rate, I wish you luck on the low carb journey. For me, I focus on portion control rather then eliminating one aspect of a diet, but I know a lot of people who cut carbs and have had success.

I am not familiar with ********** but P90X is awesome. You will hate it but you will love it at the same time. Good luck and make sure to keep up posted about your progress.

it is not difficult to get complete nutrition with a low carb diet, which are you doing? Lots of veggies, and healthy fats. (if you don't have enough fat to replace the carbs, you can't stick it out)

Be aware that doing low carb can make serious working out a real challenge. It has to do with the way the body utilizes glycogen and how it functions when carbs are not a readily available fuel source. Might be worth looking into, perhaps on a fitness forum, before you jump into the P90X too heavily.

Good luck.

Thanks Robin I did look into that and it looks like if I am in ketosis then the ketones will replaces the carbs fully after a week or so. If not then I will have to reconsider.

Wow Cherrypie that's really random that you live near Watertown! Small world lol.

Good luck! I have loads more energy on low carb than calorie counting so you will be fine working out. The first 3 days are tough but once you get in ketosis, you will feel great.
