    Burned out...

    How many of you get sick of eating the same thing all the time? I mean, there are only a limited number of ways to cook a chicken. When I look at a can of tuna, I think I'd rather eat the can than the contents. Eggs nauseate me now. Beef is too expensive to eat everyday. The only thing I look forward to are my protein shakes. At least they have a decent taste. BUT, when I do cheat, I feel like shit for 24 hours. I can't wait til I can start a bulk again.

    Yup, that happens. Ms. Dash makes a ton of Salt Free seasonings Great on eggs, chicken or fish. I've just learned to spice things up but I do eat the same thing every single day.

    I feel your pain, Rob. There are days when I simply REFUSE to eat chicken, tuna or fish. Most of the time I can scarf down the same food all time, but there are days when I just can't do it. Usually that means a post-work stop at the grocery store for something "different."

    BTW, on days like this, Detour bars are my best friend.

    yeah, it happens to the best of us.

    that is why you should have a cheat day each week.

    I had one last Friday. It was my son's B-day and I actually had a piece of cake. Couldn't see my abs 2 days later. (of course the pizza we had for dinner didn't help)

    unless you're dieting for a show, I do not think one cheat day per week will set you back, in fact I say eat just about whatever you want the entire day.

    I can handle eating a lot of Oatmeal, Salmon, Mahi-Mahi, Green veggies, brown rice....

    It's the Tuna that gets me....so easy to prepare with some Flax and Mustard, but I get really sick of it...

    I agree though... food can start getting a bit bland when you eat the same thing for long enough. Its a good time to go to the supermarket and look for new and interesting foods

    One thing that helps me, is to mix things up a little. If I'm having tuna for lunch so doggon often, then make a change at some point before you get sick of it.

    All in all though I seem to take things pretty well. My worst problem is if I dont eat every 3 hours or so I get cravings for junk, fast food trips etc, thats my big enemy.

    hell, if you're really trying to put on the size, I say eat whatever you want, whenever you want. I think that's why I haven't been making big enough gains in my strength...I've been too concerened with getting fat. Of course, I still eat the same shit every day just because I don't mind the taste and because what I eat is simple to make and cheap...but, if I go out with friends, I'll eat burgers, ice cream/cake, etc. It doesn't matter to me...
