I'd be in trouble since the way I get protein is from animal proteins. I am severly allergic to soy so I have to read labels of all processed foods....pretty much why I don't eat them. I do agree with the protein at every meal since that is what keeps me full longer and drinking water. I have also been trying to exercise a lot more. I still love Bob no matter what but mostly it's for his body laugh

He only suggests no animal protein one day a week which is his all veggie day. You can eat all the animal protein you want the other 6 days a week. Not that this is something that i would do, and none of his ideas are new or innovative. It is the same old stuff all over again. Protein with every meal, drink water and eat lots of veggies. Pretty sure this is what most of us do anyway.

Soy is not the only form of non-animal protien. The purpose of out sourcing your protien to nuts and seeds, is most likely to ensure your body is getting all the necessary essential fatty acids. From my experience, a high protien - low carb diet works really well for a couple reasons. 1. Protien will help regulate and maintain your sugar levels. 2. Protien is heavy and helps you fill up faster and stay that way longer. 3. Carbs turn to sugar, which make people like me sluggish and hungry. 4. Carbs is what gives us that prego look (that stuborn lower belly fat that women especially have issues with)



I saw on that show The Revolution that nuts have absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever and you should never eat them. I thought, "Are you serious?" They are good sources of protein, fiber and fatty acids that you need. I haven't watched that show since

His new book is out today. Basically it suggests protein with every meal-one glass of water before every meal and 8-12 glasses per day-one day with no animal protein (to focus on fruits and veggies) and one "splurge" day a week.

any thoughts?


I think you should fully read it instead of telling people what you think you skimmed over. Theres more tips than this and He suggests to shoot for 5 cups of water a day. One day of no meat and one splurge meal per week to keep us sane.

Fall for marketing schemes much? Because I have these pills....they are MAGIC!

I will have to look into it, I usually love Bob. From the rough outline, it seems like a good plan to me. Just curious what protein sources he suggests with every meal? Is it always meat?


read much??

I have a splurge meal either every week or every 2 weeks. I don't eat everything in site. I plan my day. I exercise, I eat well all day and for dinner I will have what I want. I still count those calories. Because I have made changes in how I eat, I often find that my splurge meal does not go that much over my daily calorie allotment, sometimes not at all. I think I do better during the day because I know I am going to treat myself at dinner. I also have found that the change up, helps me keep my weight loss on track. No one is saying that you should wake up and eat your way to bed.

He has to use gimmicks, like the ones listed in the OP. He'll never sell books saying, "Eat a balanced diet, and count your calories."


I don't think it's a gimmick to explain what a balanced diet is. The more I learn about food and fueling my body, the more I realize that what the average person thinks is "healthy and balanced" really isn't.

Only eating certain foods on certain days? That's a gimmick.

Anyone know if there's anything you can do to combat flouride in water combatting a bad thyroid? I may be grasping at straws... but dieting and working my butt off in the gym for minimal results.... frustrated.

I would suggest creating a new thread.

QUOTE:

He actually says to do one splurge MEAL a week. The thought behind it is that when you plan the splurge you are in control.

Exactly..not a whole DAY..just a MEAL...

QUOTE:

I like the idea of a meatless day a week. And you don't NEED animal protein per se. Quinoa is the only non animal substance that is also a complete protein, like animal protein. So you wouldn't be missing the other parts of the proteins like with other sources of protein.

Problem solved.

Agree...I have mine as Meatless Monday

I just read the book, and in no way does he say not to eat animal protein. He even says that fish (which is an animal) is the ideal protein. I am not cool that one of his food rules is no potatos, but everything else seemed logical.

I thought about buying this book but don't want to pony up the dough if it's just going to tell me things that I already know...

just curious, why do you say "soy is garbage"?
QUOTE:

Also, the phytoestrogens in soy can have a harmful effect on the estrogen levels in men and women, causing hormonal imbalances.
This would be it for me. There have been studies done to show that large amounts of soy protein ingested by males can result in higher estrogen. For men, that could lead to gyno and no man wants man boobs (unless they are purposely trying to get them).

Bob does not say 'no animal protein.' Look at the recipes he includes. I am already down 6 pounds and I am sold!

I was liking the ideas until it got to the "no animal protein".

You need to be eating meat as a main protein source.
Soy is garbage.


but other than that yes, it's nothing new really. Drink water, and eat protein.


This is crap. You don't "need to be eating" animal protein. You can get all the protein you need from other sources. This is total garbage.

I do not like the point where he said that white rice it terrible for you.

I ate white rice (short grain calrose) every day, twice a day growing up. I graduated high school weighing less than 100 lbs.

Personally, I don't think white rice is as bad as everybody says it is, but that is my own personal opinion, I personally experienced eating it that often, and I wasn't fat. I didn't participate in sports either.

I will still eat soy, and I make sure it's organic.

Just read it- AWESOME! (and scary...because turns out I have quite a bit to change :-/ I was in denial). He's not totally anti-animal protein...he suggests eggs, fish, limited meat etc! He is very pro-protein!
