I am an athlete (basketball player) currently on the paleo diet. I am looking to lean out, but feel as if I will not get enough energy if I take both fruits and nuts out of my diet. Which of the two if taken out would yield better results for... (more)
nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.

Hey guys, I just read the grapplers guide to nutrition by Berardi and it is pretty interesting, it seems to suggest eating paleo, a lean protein, non processed carb like fruit or tubers and veggies every 2-3 hours. 5-6 meals a day, with one none... (more)

Colpo's The Fat Loss Bible would prove a pretty handy resource, I think. Don't be discouraged by the title. Very clear (and persuasive) on the carb and protein needs of the athlete/ very active.
Training twice a day, one fairly anaerobic/high intensity session, the other more strength based. Carbohydrate necessary to fuel effort levels. The goal is to lean out a little more. Would you place them before the workout and then just eat a... (more)
