Haha! Thanks! I couldn't imagine my diet without bacon and BBQ sauce. For awhile I was eating my chicken plain, but after a month of that I just couldn't do it anymore. I tried teriyaki......way too salty for me. I tried Caribbean Jerk Sauce.....I threw up in about an hour and I'll never buy it again. Lemon Pepper seasoning got boring real fast too.

lol well yeah, but what kind of meals are you eating that require a 2+ tbsp of a sugar based sauce to make it add up? we are talking like 2g of sugar per tbsp here... its nothing trust me. pure honey and syrup is a bit different, but still negligible

if you can stomach the food.. by all means. Just remember, it is all about consistency over time, each to their own

I went through the same exact phase until I settled on my basil marinade I mentioned on the first page of this thread. Never looked back.

I threw away Jerk sauce as well, and another one made of mango and red peppers. Some horrible sauces out there.

Look at your BBQ sauce, molases is all sugar. Most of BBQ sauces you buy will have at least 13g in a serving (2tbs). At some point I was just dipping chicken pieces in honey, but that got boring really fast.

Everything in moderation, I wouldn't use a sauce every single time... but its great on a steak, chicken, etc from time to time as well I happen to like grilled with dry rub anyways, and more fattier cuts of meat for flavor.

Chicken breast is probably my least favorite food, and I know how to make it pretty damn delicious. BBQ'd split chicken is much juicier and more options

Yeah, you're right z00. I just checked one of my unopened bottles and it's 14g of sugar per 2 Tbsp. There must be a point - in grams - in which sugar goes from having a negligible effect to having a significant effect on the body.

I look at it this way....


....I'm able to stay lean and keep a nicely defined 6 pack/physique 12 months a year (...no "summer body" nonsense here ) without much of a fuss. I must be doing something right, especially when others with more specific dietary habits have yet to achieve that.

I think you said the golden keywords before which is what allows you to have a lean body all year around. Calories in, calories out, with intense high volume workouts. You get enough cardio from martial arts and your line of work.

Since I listened to your advice, and I increased my workouts volume, I have been seeing great progress in numbers and in mirror in only 5 months. But damn sugar and carbs add up quickly especially with a sedentary desk job like mine.

yes, but things add up quickly before you know it. So if I can find a sauce that will make my chicken tastes better without the extra carbs, I'll take it.
I like lamb/fillet mignon the most, but they're not as healthy as chicken/turkey. I have a balanced intake of all natural protein sources (salmon, chicken, lamb, turkey).

I figured the easiest way to share our grocery lists is to post the receipt. I go grocery shopping every week, my list is pretty much the below, sometimes I change up few things but that's about it.

Seriously, without pics of your shopping cart, this thread will be just like Solly's other thread.

I eat out a lot (trying to stop) but at home I consume mainly soybeans, chicken pot pies, S. Pellegrino waters, Chef Boyardee, Easy Mac, and about 3 dozen eggs a week. Oh yeah and homemade Caesar salad. And I'm trying to cut down on the Coke.

I know but I'm 5'8" and 135. Trying to change my diet though, have started by limiting fast food to 2x a week.

What you're eating is pretty much as bad as fast food.

Eat real foods man

no offense, but how old are you? this sounds like the diet of a lazy teenager

You are basically right. But I used to be, I'm now starting to work out now and change my diet.

good, if you are serious about it and want to, make a progress thread and post all your questions / diet & workout plans in there. I wouldn't be close to where I am without mine (and I still have lots of work left)

it holds you accountable if you keep it up, and eventually serves as motivation later on when you can look back and see the changes. this isn't easy, especially at first... it takes a long time to fix bad habits

That sounds like a good idea. I have (in the past few months) tried to cut out most of this so my diet mainly consists of eggs and lean meats. I don't ingest nearly as much dairy or processed food as I used to either.
