I recently had a chat with a nutritionist and he said that if I stay away from liquids and ate more solids that reaching my goal (a nice healthy six pack) would be quicker to attain. Obviously, the diet needs to be a clean diet, with lean proteins (chicken and turkey breasts, salmon, fish), healthy fats (almonds, fish oil capsules) and carbs (oats, oatmeal, brown rice). Is there any logic behind the "eating more solids" as opposed to liquids? I have 2-3 protein shakes a day (including one after my workout), and also LIQUID egg whites in the morning and sometimes during the day and at night. Should I stick with more of meats and fish instead of so many protein shakes? I'm trying to get rid of a little pudge I have at the bottom of my belly, but my diet is flawless. I was hoping this "liquid vs. solid" foods would do me right. Someone please chime in!
