My New Diet Refinement

Sep 6, 2011 by

Diet For Weight Loss


For the last couple of month’s I’ve been going a little crazy when it comes to eating too many snack bars :). Let’s just say I haven’t really been indulging a little on snack bars :), more like 4 or 5 sweet bars and half of large dark chocolate bar and tons of fruit – a day. When we eat this much sugar, our energy levels start to suffer ( mine especially ). I notice that I am having a hard time sleeping and a much harder time working out and much longer time recovering after  my workouts.

Right now is definitely not the biggest sugar problem I’ve ever had, it use to be way more out of control. You wouldn’t believe that I use to eat a can of Nutella in one sitting without a twitch :), that was my biggest weakness when it came to sugar, that and cake frosting, LOL.  When I would see cake frosting, I would literally get hypnotized by it.  I beat that addiction a while ago, but there is still a lover of sugar living inside of me.

My training had definitely been suffering,  and since the winter is here and it’s finally cooling down, I have to get a grip on my self and get my mind and body together.

Starting today, I am going to refine my eating habits, not only when it comes to just sugar but grains that don’t come in it’s natural form. That means no more sweet snack bars, not even low sugar dark chocolate bars, and only 2 servings of fruit a day.


This is What My New Diet Refinement Will Look Like


  • Meat
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Vegetables
  • Only 2 servings of fruit per day
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Buckwheat ( Raw Kind Not Roasted )
  • Quinoa
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Regular Potatoes in moderation ( not fried )


Things I will be avoiding


  • Wheat even Whole Wheat
  • White Rice
  • Anything that has added sugars
  • Any form of grain or food that has been refined
  • Anything Containing Soy


I’ve done this change in my Nutrition before and I’ve seen amazing improvements in my energy levels, my workout performance and sleep patterns, so I am ready to get back there again.

The results from cutting out sugar are almost immediate, but in the first few days I usually get withdraw symptoms, because sugar has a the same effect on the brain as alcohol ( it’s addicting when consumed all the time ), but withdraws only last about a week, sometimes two ( depending on how much sugar you have been consuming all your life ).

This is going to be my diet principles for right now. You can try cleaning up your diet with me if you like and share your thoughts, I guarantee you will notice great improvements in your body composition,  energy levels and workout recovery time.


PS – The workout I was suppose to do today, will be coming a day late and will be posted Wednesday morning, I wasn’t able to recover properly from a workout I did on Saturday, and I don’t want to push my self over my limits.
