Pics of your grocery shopping cart thread

Will be good to know what each person buys. I go grocery shopping every week. I'll post the pic later after work.

^ that bacon. I used to eat turkey bacon, after I learned how it's processed, I stopped. I only eat non-processed meats now.

In the back of the cart; What's in the plastic bags? What are those sauce bottles?

I go through AT LEAST two packs of bacon a week. It's just as much a staple in my diet as eggs and chicken. One of the bags has whole oats and the other has almonds. I use BBQ sauce for my chicken. It keeps me from becoming bored of it.

How much sugar is in BBQ sauce? I used to eat it with my chicken and then realized how much sugar it has. Now I marinade 3.5lbs of chicken breasts in basil, lemon, garlic, Soyaki sauce, olive oil, and it tastes great. Never get sick of it, minus the sugar.

all the calories will almost certainly be directly from sugar, depends on the bbq sauce

i make my own

dabears,

We have a very similar taste in food. Don't you have IBS and lactose intolerance like me? How do you consume all of this dairy? I cannot eat legumes, greens (except for few ones), mayo, and many other things. My stomach is a one sensitive b!tch.

What do you use avocado oil for?

I don't have IBS (well I could, don't really know the symptoms) but I've been lactose intolerant my whole life. Also deathly allergic to peanuts. I get slightly upset stomach from cheese / cream (milk or whey is the worst) but I just deal with it since it is an occassional treat, not a staple. I cut whey out recently

what do you mean by greens?

mayo gives you trouble I bet because store bought is typically made from soybean oil (even ones labeled as olive oil only have 30% or less EVOO). homemade mayo is made from eggs + vegetable oil, aioli from eggs + olive oil.

avocado oil has one of the highest smoke points for a healthy oil, I use it to sear meat like steak etc... coconut oil is too low + don't like coconut taste for meat besides shrimp.

Never cook with olive oil, it turns rancid and puts free radicals (cancer causing) particles in the body

Last year some foods that I ate regularly started causing bloating and discomfort. Beans, lentils, asparagus, snow peas, broccoli. So I removed them from my diet. I still have bloating and trying to figure what else bothers my stomach. I would have made better progress if I can eat more things and my stomach was not a PITA.

Not just mayo, but also mustard bothers my stomach. I'm a pain in the ass to go out with as there are only few things that I can eat in a restaurant. I don't think I'm allergic to anything as I tool the allergy test 4 years ago and was negative. I would pay some money to figure out this bloating issue.

Your BBQ seems yummy. I'll tweak my marinade to add some ingredients from your recipe. I really don't need the extra BBQ sugar post workout. I get enough already lol. I love eating tahini sauce with honey PW.

ever tried whole 30?

http://whole9life.com/category/whole-30/

it is a great way to determine what can be causing your bloating, you don't have to pay just google for more info if you are interested

edit: someone blogged doing it and has a good list of what you can't eat

Honestly, I don't look and I don't really care. It's not enough to make a difference in my diet, and it's not enough to affect my ability to lean out significantly. In fact, the minimal amount of sugar that I might get in a serving of BBQ chicken is nothing in comparison to eating a half gallon of ice cream over the span of less than 36 hours (..or my fascination with gummy bears, a useless sugary edible treat that has zero nutritional value, and that I eat on a regular basis). At the end of the day it's calories in, calories out! Carbs have much more of an effect on me than the sugar does, and even then..........I STILL don't really care that much about how many grams of carbs any given item has either.

Agreed!!!! I actually only cook it in the BBQ sauce. I end up dumping most of it down the drain once all of the chicken is gone.

On that note.....I'm getting another cream cheese pie tonight after I perform 200 reps on the front squat using 135 lbs. That is going to be KILLER, and my wang is hard just thinking about it.

My body tends to love carbs, so with sugar and simple carbs I notice my body composition changes. I try to minimize carbs as much as I can unless it's pre or post workout.

there is no way you have body composition changes using a tbsp or two of BBQ sauce with your workout volume dude, it has to be in your head or from other sources (bloated that day etc)

My diet is already pretty much similar to whole 30 program. I think I have GI issues. Most foods tend to give me bloating. I'm gonna go see a GI doc.

Sometimes I fast and try foods one at a time to isolate which ones bother me, even just simple grilled salmon with avocado give me issues. My stomach is just happy when it's empty. Literally only water and green tea that don't bother me. It's so annoying, I wonder what's causing this. Just started about 8 months ago.

Ok, I have tested this, for 2 weeks, I ate 200g of carbs a day. Some from white carbs and othes from sugar. I can see the difference in the mirror. I stopped it, weeks later, things looked different. Things add up easily, 2tsb from BBW, 2tsb from honey, 2tsb from Maple syrup, you get the idea.
