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!
