The Anabolic Diet
If you have never heard of the Anabolic “diet” then go check out this interesting article from TNation.com. I did some cliff notes of what the “diet” entails below for those who are not into clicking links. If you are having a hard time making gains while staying lean on your current regimen, maybe you should give this one a go.
According to DiPasquale, the Anabolic diet will:
• naturally maximize production and utilization of the “Big Three” growth producers — testosterone, growth hormone, and insulin
• shift the body’s metabolism from that of a sugar-burning, fat-producing machine to that of a fat-burning, muscle-building machine
• decrease catabolic activity in the body
• increase strength and endurance
• help you avoid health problems and stay in shape year round
• increase energy and decrease mood swings
• decrease even “problem area” fat
…and perhaps most importantly:
• scare the living shit out of vegetarians!
Monday through Friday
Eat a diet consisting of 60% fat, 35% protein, and only 5% carbs. You’ll get the fat and protein mainly from steak, hamburger, eggs, and fish. Turkey, chicken, and tuna are all okay, but the password here is red meat. You’ll also eat full-fat cheeses, pepperoni, sausage, and certain nuts. The key is to generally avoid carbohydrates, eating only around 30 grams a day.
Saturday and Sunday
Switch gears. On the weekends, eat 30% fat, 10% protein, and a whopping 60% carbs!
