IMO not when you're living an active lifestyle, and training for endurance + strength. If he was training for aesthetics/bodybuilding lifestyle or if he was a non trainer and sedentary then I'd agree with you.

I'm smart because I read what has been said already. Are you smart?

Just keep it simple.

Get a lot of Green Vegetables and Fruits (Berries) in your diet. Keep carbs to minimum and fat to a minimum.

Drink a lot of water get a lot of protein in your diet.



You should also think about getting some Fish Oil, A Multivitamin and maybe some Tonalin CLA

Jeez this filled up quick. I bought the book training for warriors mentioned earlier, a while ago, great book esp the mind/spirit parts and the diet part. I also bought a book called nutrient timing system but neither seem to adress what to eat on the off/relax/vacation days to maintain what you have worked for, I think because they are geared more toward professional athletes. But i learned a lot from here! I already eat a ton of fresh fruit and vegetables, and chicken and/or turkey when i can. I dont really care for beef or pork anyway so i guess thats good. What kind of nuts are better than others or just good in general? and what about for calories? 2400 seems like a lot, but hey, im no expert. Thanks everyone so far this is a great place!

2400 is light maintence for your weight.

you eat less and your body's metabolism will slow down and catabolism will be more of a problem. That's your body breaking down your muscle for energy and to become more efficient/
