With all of the fads/programs/plans has anyone tried a diet that has worked for them and been able to stay on it? Like the atkins diet, great for a quick start but not reasonable for long periods of time. I have seen pics of that guy(dr. atkins) and he doesnt look healthy. Anyway my question is this, what is working for you and what have you tried, even if it is your own plan!

Dr. Atkins has been dead for quite some time. I perfer high protein diets. Protein 50-55% carbs 30-35% and fats 15% of calories.

Diet should vary depending on what your goals are at the time. Some people are able to stay on a super "clean" diet for long periods of time and make solid LBM gains, while others are better at cycling their bulk and cut diets. So I guess it depends on what your goals are, do you wish to just walk around with the "spring break" body, want to be a house, or want to compete.. diets will definitely vary.

Agree 100%
Carbs and fat are neccesary

Carb cycling. Keeps the carbs low but keeps me sane and my workouts strong at the same time. I also love the loading day.

Give us an example, thanks.

Anyone ever use John Berardi's percision nutrition diet plan. I was looking on purchasing it, but for me currently as a poor college student who's in search of a summer job, the cost is a bit much....about 100 bucks.

I love to loose about 25-lbs. I can't seem to find the program that works for me. With extreme dilligence I can loose the weight, however the trouble areas don't seem to want to budge.....little bit of natural gyno and chest fat, little bit of fat on the face and under the chin, a little bit around the lower abs and love handles..........so unfortunately I can't really hide it no matter what the season is. Also the few times when they have shrunk down,...(never really went away like I wanted them too),.......I have lost a fair amount of muscle size and density.

i seem to like to eat about 6 well rounded meals a day. i sort of follow the 6 pack abs diet from men's health magazine. i eat a whole bunch of stuff. it's easy to follow, and no real calorie counting.

This is an old thread, but will reply anyway...

It really depends on what your lifestyle is, and what your goal is..

The main goal is to design your diet around you; not having to redesign yourself to fit your diet.

Create a plan that is not impossible, and that fits your options for meals and schedule.

For example, I created a plan for a friend, which was made based on the places where he would eat lunch, and also considering the foods that he loved the most... He had to made some sacrifices; but nothing radical enough to make him feel crazy...

Hope this helps..

Individual variables really determine what one needs to eat. Quite simply start by setting goals. If you want to drop fat - eat less. Reduced CHO diets are almost always highly successful in this respect, but are arguably the most difficult to stick to. Drinking less alcohol is an obvious. As an endomorph, I have found managing my CHO intake to be of paramount importance in avoiding fat gain and fat loss. Something in the neighborhood of (% daily calories) 20 CHO, 50 PRO, 30 Fat works well when cutting. Included in this approx. every 5th day is a isocaloric refeed with about 70 CHO, 20 Pro and 10 Fat. For bulking, I stick to a 30 CHO, 40Pro, 30Fat ratio, with no-carb days on off/cardio days in an attempt ot keep lean.

and within those parameters it has to be manageable(foods that are available and somewhat attractive), rewarding(results that show in the mirror and on the scale),and accompanied with a reasonable cardio program.

Agreed on all fronts. In other words, "dietin' aint easy."
