post your daily intake.
What are some good things to eat for an anabolic diet? So far the best thing I can think of is peanut butter because of its protein and fats and the bread with it for carbs, but you are supposed to eat tons of carlories daily and too much protein isnt neccessary ( I think it should only be around 10% of your calorie intake). Also (from what I've read), testosterone (which may increase from eating the fats) only creates new muscle fibers for growing boys, it doesnt create hypertrophy for existing muscle fibers. Also, I don't know if bread is the best source of carbs for an anobolic diet, but I'm only 16 so I wouldnt know.
post your daily intake.
are you talking about the anabolic diet fred hatfield wrote about?
10% of your daily intake would be very low.....but, percentages mean jack shit without knowing what the daily intake actually is....chances are the daily intake will be high enough for me to make that statement though.
Eating overal caloric maintenance is anabolic.
carbs can be anabolic as they spare protein and help shuttle nutrients.
fats have a number of functions that are very beneficial.
In general......eating properly and lifting weights (some heavy tension work and some metabolic work) can create a very anabolic environment within your body.
Well, I cant really post my daily intake because I live with a family and whatever we have for a main meal is what we have. Usually for snacks as I said I eat a peanut butter sandwich with some whole/2% milk. Still I want to know some good foods that you guys would recommend, like what would be good sources of protein, carbs, and fats for an anabolic diet.
that information is all in the stickies.
you need more complete meals in between your main meals. Just because your family eats dinner together, doesn't mean you can't prepare healthy meals or make healthy choices (based on what they are eating), or even offer healthier alternatives for the sake of your families health.
I'm assuming you're using the fatty, sugary, Skippy or Jiffy Peanut Butter which makes those peanut butter sandwiches you're eating in between meals a piss poor option.
As Patrick said, all the information you need is in the stickies. Read them.
If you are using anything but all natural (ingredients: peanuts, *sometimes* salt.) PB, you're eating something that isn't much better for you than Snickers.
I'm also assuming you're using white bread or some other non-wheat/grain bread, which makes that sandwich even worse than a Snickers.
Sugar Free Low Carb Protein Powder (Whey)
Cream for Coffee
Flax Seed Oil
Natural Sugar Free Nut Butters (PB, Almond Butter, Cashew Butter etc)
Oil Based Dressings
Real Butter (no spray, no margarine)
Long Grain Brown Rice
Old Fashioned Oats
Fresh or Frozen (w/o syrup) berries
Whole Grain Bread
All Bran w/ Extra Fiber
Uncle Sam Cereal
Whole Wheat Pasta
Peppers (any color)
Snacks & Beverages:
Sugar Free Jello
Diet Soda (1-2 per day)
I love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich when my caloric balance allows it.
I use sugar free jelly, natural organic peanut butter (no added salt, just peanuts in peanut oil) and whole wheat bread. The bread I get is also sliced relatively thin so the sandwiches aren't mostly bread like a normal sandwich usually is.
Still tastes just as good as the sugary bullshit peanut butter and jelly sandwiches everyone else eats.

natural peanut butter from trader joes (organic) is good stuff. has no trans/saturated fats...only mono and polysaturated which is what kinds of fats you should be consuming.
It's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you.
