    Can you post up what you had please mate?

    Does the weight stay off? What happens when you re - introduce carbs (post shakes and meals).

    What work out were you doing with it (full bodies, splits, rep ranges)

    Did you have any other problems (shits, trouble sleeping?)

    Here is what I was eating mate,

    The weight does stay off but when re introducing carbs you will gain some weight (the old carbs holding 3g of water or what ever it is) I found when I re introduced carbs for the two weeks before my tournament I stayed at the same weight at the end of each week.

    I was doing a 2/3 day split, push/pull/legs I actually found some of my lifts got heavier but I had to time work out and meals right...

    I had no problems once I was used to it, it was hard sleeping the first few nights as I was really hungry but over all I found no problems.

    The creatine thing, I guess it depends on you, I know a few people who take it and they just hold the water around their face makes them look like they have a double chin!

    By the way, for the carbs you are allowed up to 20g a day as most things have trace carbs!

    Thats a lot of turkey mince!

    Were you taking any other supplements with that (fish oils, BCAAS, glutamine etc)?

    Hi mate, I did change it to something different after a week or two I have attached it. I was having multi vit, vit c (have to keep these up high as not a lot of food otherwise you will get ill) I was having BCAA as well.
    To make up the rest of the fat I was having Fish Oils, 6 caps per meal so 36 fish oil caps a day.

    If you do this diet and find your self getting low on energy, get your self some brewers yeast from H&B, yes it does have carbs in it but bosh one of these with every meal as well.

    I did end up doing variations as well. As you can eat as much green veg as you want, I was cooking up organic chicken stock blending up some brocolli and chucking it in and cooking the turkey in that and what not.

    Keep it in, it will help keep you lifting heavier weights despite running down the cals.
    Completely agree, pointless taking it out for you.

    If you're training mma or any other martial art then the diet posted is a waste of time. By all means reduce and manipulate your carb intake, but don't cut them out!

    How is it a waste of time out of interest? - You could carb cycle that may be better, but if you want to loose weight quick then what I posted worked wonders and I did not suffer any energy depletion so to speak (after the first few days) - there are many different diets and some people take to different diets better than others. For my self and others that have done/do this diet it seems to work fine.

    For MMA it is a poor diet, but for fat loss or weight loss it is fine, that is quite extreme though i would personally look to do something like this if i was cutting weight or wanting lose fat and keep up with my training

    Meal 1: Oats + protein shake, banana

    Meal 2: Tuna + baked potato

    Meal 3: Beef steak, green veg

    Meal 4: Pre workout chicken/turkey pasta with salad

    Post workout – protein, carb & creatine shake

    Meal 5: Fish (salmon/haddock/tuna steak) with veg,

    Meal 6: Cottage cheese or protein shake

    ^ mate that is far to high in carbs for me to loose fat. It looks like a good maintaining diet for someone though. Its really not suitable for my needs as im quite a carb intollerant person (very poor insulin senstivity).

    The diet posted by yetiman looks good but i dont fancy having mince 3 times a day. I will probably week the contents (eg eggs for breakfast) and carb cycle a bit (more carbs on mma days)

    cheers for the help though guys
