I went on this diet, I went on the forums, everyone telling me I could eat a dozen eggs a day, half a pound of fatty meat a day, and that I still needed more fats, saying it wouldn't affect my cholesterol levels. YEAH right got a blood test my cholesterol went to 420 my LDL in the 300s and my HDL 92. Went off of it for 2 weeks my Cholesterol was 172. The doctor thinks I have a specific Apo E gene that enabled me to lose all that cholesterol so quickly, and she said I have to stay away from fatty meats and nuts (apparently it causes me to manufacture cholesterol, this is the only part I don't agree with her on) and chicken skin and liver etc.... So yes I am proof that this can fuck you up

Diet and nutrition / How many grams of fat should I be getting in a day?

I just want an approximation, not an exact number because that would be impossible, but I am active, lift heavy 3 times a week, I am 5"6.5, 19 years old, and male. and weigh 136 pounds.

I have a problem with my thyroid, causing me not to be able to have a lot of iodine, also causing me to have MAJOR trouble losing fat. I am really thin, being 5"7 and 135 pounds, and everyone tells me how thin I am and how I need to gain weight, but I had a doctor tell me I'm about 18% bodyfat only around my lower ab. I have started doing this low calorie diet and it is helping me lose an exorbitant amount of weight, but I'm worried with all my working out (I do the Mark Rippetoe workout), I won't be able to gain much muscle. Here is my diet tell me what you think and if I will be able to gain the twenty pounds of muscle I need (I realize it will take a few years to do this).

Morning: half a pound of 90% ground beef, veggies, 6 egg whites, and an apple with a serving of almond butter. Lunch: half a pound of 90% ground beef and a lot of veggies. Dinner: 6 egg white omelette and a lot of veggies.

I realize this may sound repetitive but it is the only way I can stay on my exact budget and get all the nutrients and protein I need, so idc that I do this everyday (and I know people say you won't be able to not cheat but I have been able to easily). Will I be able to get that six pac and nice arms and chest and etc with this and proper exercise? Thanks

I just had 7 servings of flax meal and it says 4 carbs and 4 fiber, which I thought meant 0 net carbs. But then I looked and it says 3 insoluble fiber and 1 soluble. Is it still 0 net carbs or did I just take in a whole bunch of unnecessary carbs. Please help I'm freaking out!

Exercises / How to count carbs?

Do you subtract the fiber from the carbs. My flax meal is 4 carbs and 4 fiber so I was wondering if that means I'm getting 0 carbs. I started making muffins with flax meal eggs and cinnamon and I use about 8 servings of flax meal a day (I'd rather pack in the extra 420 calories from flax meal and I already eat a dozen eggs a day so it's not like I'm doing anything but changing the cooking method). Thank you

Exercises / Cooking meat too long?

I don't like my meat juicy, it just grosses me out, so I usually cook in an oven for 30 minutes on 450 degrees 3 hamburgers daily and was wondering if this changes the protein content/ fat content/ caloric intake?

My stomach i finally flat from being paleo, but I had to cut so many things from my diet to remain paleo that I'm now at 2600 calories a day. I get enough protein and fat, but don't know if this will just get me cut instead of bigger. I workout intensely so please give me tips. Thanks

morning energy snack-

2 servings of almonds and half a serving of flax seed and caocao powder.

breakfast 1.5 hours later-

3 eggs boiled mixed with lettuce, carrots, and onions, with 1 table spoon of olive oil.

Another meal 2 hours later-

1 pound of broiled skinless chicken breast

Another meal 1.5 hours later-

half a pound of 85% beef + 3 eggs

1.5 hours later-

half a pound of skinless chicken breast broiled.

This totals over 200 grams of protein and 2500 calories.

I am thin, 5'6.5, and I workout religiously. My goals are to have an extremely defined six pack and to gain 20 pounds of muscle. I started at 133.5 pounds and I am now up to 140. I feel like I am lacking the calories to gain the muscle mass I am so desperately seeking. My diet is restricted seeing I can't have added salt/ too much iodine (thyroid problem). Any suggestions or alterations please comment. Thank you all so much for your help!

So I'm doing intense weightlifting and a tiny bit of cardio to warm up for my workouts. I am 142 pounds and 5'6.h and I am male. I have gained almost ten pounds now at the gym and ever since starting this diet my stomach is thinning out and beginning to show abs. I am looking to go to around 165 pounds of pure muscle. Here's my diet: 6 eggs, 1 pound of chicken, half a pound of lean meat, 100 calories from broccoli, 6 servings rice protein, 5 serving olive oil, 6 servings of almonds, one serving flax seed, one serving of pure caocao powder, and an avocado. Thank you!
