    Ok… I’ve been getting tons of questions about the video above.

    I think it left some people with questions because I told you about my favorite foods to eat when you have to cut a lot of weight in only 3 days, but I didn’t give a sample meal plan.

    So…. here is a sample meal plan that works when you have to cut a bunch of weight but don’t want to starve, get weak, and feel lifeless:

    Thank you for adding your excellent videos, which “show & tell” safe and healthy nutritional information! My question is: Are there any differences in these weight-cutting methods for High School, or College wrestlers? (Ages 14y rs-21 yrs)
    Thanks!

    Steve.
    When you say:
    “5 small meals with a ratio of 2:1 Protein to Carbohydrates”

    Do you mean something like 4 oz of chicken and 2oz of sweet potato or are you looking at grams of protein and carbs?

  6. stevepreston Says:

    Chris,

    Just saw this post… sorry. Ok, I’m referring to a “visual” ratio of 2:1 protein to carbohydrates. When you do this, it results in a macronutrient profile that is double ex. 40 grams of protein to 20 grams of carbohydrates. It just seems to work itself out with many “dinner foods.” As far as lunch, snack etc you may want to count the grams of protein and carbs. This would be especially true with shakes.

    also how should the meat be eaten, and are there any alternatives to them, such as chicken or turkey?
