ABC Diet (Modified)

If you care about the way your skin looks, then you know just how important it is to monitor what you put on and into your body. This ABC diet is perhaps going to change your life and physique for good. So many people think that what you eat is irrelevant when it comes to skin and health in general. They party, drink tons of alcohol and eat like crap. It actually puts me in a bad mood just thinking about the number of people that come up to me asking for dieting advice.

I tell them exactly what has worked in the past for me and they immediately come up with some excuse as to why they can’t do it. Look, I’m here to tell you that every single person reading this article is capable of dieting or better yet, eating healthy. Some people simply don’t think they have what it takes and that’s where I’ve got to step in and tell you to smarten up!

You’ve got what it takes! Don’t let anyone tell you any different. It’s literally all in your head.

Before I get into the specific diet, I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself and what I was able to accomplish with this specific meal plan. Sure, it’s not anything too special, but as a teenager, I jumped on this diet in nothing but beast mode style. I was made fun of by people at school during lunch when I refused to eat that crappy mystery meat. I was talked about and even got some weirdo stares when I hit my locker midday to crush a meal while others were downing Hostess Cupcakes.

You name it, people said it.

Fast forward to my senior year and I was one of the strongest and leanest kids in the school. After spending hours in the gym and kitchen, I entered my first bodybuilding competition and placed top 3. Did I win? Nope. But it was still a pretty big accomplishment that I worked my tail off to achieve. I tried to eat clean and follow strict diets throughout college and this diet really helped me stay lean and fit. While many of my friends were letting themselves go in college, I spent time focusing on building a better body and it allowed me to keep off all that weight that most college students gain. To this day, I still fight as hard as I can. Even with injuries and aging I still put forth best efforts to build the best physical version of myself possible. I like to think that this diet played a key role in making all that happen.

The ABC Diet That Worked For Me

As previously stated, this diet worked for me and it can work for you. I’m going to give you an idea of what each letter represents and why it’s called the ABC diet. The letters A-B-C all represent specific types of days. The days constitute what you should be eating if you want to get in the best shape possible.

Contrary to most diets, the ABC diet that I did had a 5-day cycle. Some diets only have a 3-day cycle by I choose to modify things a bit and do a 5-day cycle.

The eating cycle is as follows: AACBC

In this specific cycle, you’re getting one high-carb day, two average carb days and two low-carb day. The idea behind this is to shock your body and kick your metabolism into high gear. I’ll cover the specific days and my opinion on each meal and the day itself. The diet was written for an active male weighing 180-185lbs looking to drop to 160lbs. However, it can be further modified for a female or male with lower or higher weight.

List of Foods

There are a number of different kinds of food that you’ll need to purchase on a weekly basis if you choose to do this diet. You will need the following items:

Raw Oatmeal (Quaker Oats Slow Cooking Oats)
Bananas
Whey Protein (Designer Whey)
Chicken
Sweet Potato
Broccoli
Flax Seed Oil
Tuna
Spinach
Eggs
Strawberries (I Prefer Frozen)
Lean Beef

A-Day

The A-Day is the day that you’ll be eating the most of throughout the diet cycle.

Meal 1
1 Cup Oatmeal
2 Scoops Designer Whey Protein
1 Medium Banana

Meal 2
8 Ounces Chicken Breast
8 Ounces Sweet Potato
2 Cups Broccoli
1 Tablespoon Flax Oil

Meal 3
8 Ounces Chicken Breast
2 Cups Broccoli

Meal 4
1 Can Solid White Tuna
2 Cups Spinach
1 Tablespoon Flax Oil

Meal 5
10 Egg Whites

This day of the diet is the most normal I’d say and it became the easiest day within the entire diet. I thrive on routine and balance. The A-Day provided just that with just enough carbs to get me through the day.

B-Day

The B-Day is the high-carb day, believe it or not, it can actually be hard to finish if you’re not accustomed to eating so many carbs. There is a fruit substitution on the B-Day where you must eat strawberries versus the banana. This is because the banana is higher in fat than the strawberries.

Meal 1
1 Cup Oatmeal
2 Scoops Designer Whey Protein
1 Cup Strawberries

Meal 2
8 Ounces Chicken Breast
2 Cups Rice
2 Cups Broccoli

Meal 3
8 Ounces Chicken Breast
8 Ounces Sweet Potato
2 Cups Broccoli

Meal 4
1 Can Solid White Tuna
8 Ounces Sweet Potato

Meal 5
10 Egg Whites

This is a tough day to get through due to the fact that the carbs can make you sleepy. Keep in mind that I was in high school and college while on this diet. At times, I’d have to take a quick nap just because the carbs made me tired. Other than that, it was a great day of feasting!

C-Day

The C-Day is the worst of them all within the ABC diet. It’s the lowest carb day within the meal plan and it’s actually a tough day to get through. However, if you’re taking care of your body, you shouldn’t have too much trouble trying to get through it. Remember, mind over matter!

Meal 1
1 Cup Oatmeal
2 Scoops Designer Whey Protein
1 Cup Strawberries

Meal 2
8 Ounces Chicken Breast
2 Cups Broccoli

Meal 3
8 Ounces Lean Beef
2 Cups Broccoli

Meal 4
1 Can Solid White Tuna
1 Tablespoon Flax Oil

Meal 5
10 Egg Whites

You’ll have a bit of trouble with this day especially since it follows a high-carb day but do not get off track here. You’ll love the results and you must remember that it’s all in your head.

Well, that’s the exact ABC diet and meal plan that I did. Sure, it’s a bit modified from the standard ABC diet but it works and it’s something that I can rely on if I need to get lean again. Keep in mind that I obviously did workout multiple times during the week injunction with following this eating regimen.

Please remember that I’m not a doctor or personal trainer. You should always consult with a nutritionist, physician or a licensed professional that can provide you with advice prior to making any changes in your diet or exercising routine.
