The reason i am sharing this with you all is because i have gotten tons of messages on my facebook profiles with diet inquiries on how to lose unwanted bodyfat.... I understand that we are all different and have different genetic makeup so some people may prefer a totally different nutritional approach to getting in shape. However!! THIS is what works for me... i am not "Dr. Johnson" or "Dr.Smith" in a white coat with a PHD in "blah blah blah" i am just a bikini model/fitness competitor and gym fanatic that has been in considerably alright shape for almost a decade now.... I am a personal trainer/nutritionist but my nutrition knowledge comes mainly from YEARS of trial and error and having sampled numerous different diets...
ok, so what i found works best for me is a diet LOW IN CARBOHYDRATES....when i say carbs i mean anything Whole wheat, oatmeal, bran, brown rice, rice cakes, fruits and any other of that stuff that people are brainwashed to think is the "key to weight loss". i've tried many diets that included servings of oats, brown rice or baked potato/yam/sweet potato etc...... THESE APPROACHES DO NOT WORK FOR ME!!!!! i will post some pics of me when i was ON THESE DIETS....i was "fit" but not exactly very lean.... i didnt have much energy and was not pleased with the results i was seeing considering how much time i invested in the gym. Im not saying to completely eliminate carbs because as you will see listed below...i do consume SOME carbs but mainly "cellulose" carbs coming from green veggies, and perhaps skim milk and yogurt, cocoa powder....thats about it though...
The diet ....... "MY DIET" that has NEVER FAILED me consists of Lean proteins coming from sources such as: whey isolate/concentrate, chicken (skinless chicken thighs, breasts, skinless wings), liver, beef, plain yogurt, skim milk, salmon, tuna, fish, eggs..... Vegetables such as spinach, romaine lettuce, sundried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, cabbage, pickles, cucumbers, peppers....... Healthy fats such as olive oil, cashews, almonds, nuts, coconut oil, shredded coconut, 90%chocolate, home-made real butter sometimes, flaxseeds/flaxseed oil...........

I eat around 5-6 meals a day consisting of mainly protein, veggies and some fats.... i drink coffee whenever i feel like it....surprisinly when i was on a "Complex carb" based diet i craved coffeee much more than i do good with about 3 cups each week, compared to 3-5 cups a day before.....


  1. what do you think about beans? and rice? pasta? cereal with skim milk?

  2. i personally do not think rice and pasta are any good for your health or for dietary purposes. they have all caused weight gain and metabolic damage for me in the past... i like skim milk but not cereal... beans are okay but in moderation. i hardly ever eat them though, every now and then i will have 1-2 tbsp of hummus or some kidney beans but neither my clients nor I have seen the greatest results when eating rice, pasta or cereal...i wouldnt recommend them to anyone trying to stay in shape or lean out...

  3. thank you for your answer i appreciate it. but then we have not much things to eat. i mean they are kind of "basic" foods. do you think if we eat it like once in a week or 2 weeks is it gonna be problem? or if you reached your goals ( i know its easy to get the bodyfat back) but somethimes you can have them no? or you dont even eat them never? im sorry about my weird questions im just confused or confusing myself :) thenk you for your times to answer, best wishes, Gaby

  4. you're welcome Gaby, i appreciate the feedback you are giving me... you are right, people must find it hard to get away from those basic foods especially at the beginning stages of a diet. however, there are many many, cost-effective and healthy alternatives to those basic foods. you can choose amongst any green veggie pretty much, lean proteins, yogurts (no sugar added), skim milk. check out some of the other articles in my 'previous articles' section for other food items you could eat. i think you could get away with a properly scheduled "cheat day" once or twice every 2 weeks once you have reached your ultimate goals, but again that is something that has to be planned or it can really set you back. if you have any other questions you can e-mail me! hope this helps :)
