welcome Damao. Suggestion: don't use any more salt in your coating. and do you realize you are doing 3 starches? Any kind of coloured veggie would go along with this....try some carrots, with butter, orange juice and rosemary.
Colourful and good eating. Use only 1 starch...do another veggie...or, a green salad....Enjoy your dinner!!!

I take it you're not on the Atkins diet.

I would hope that no one follows that plan. Itís been condemned by the American Medical Association, American Dietetic Association, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, and many other leading authorities in the nutritional field.

There is nothing wrong with the Atkins diet plan. There is nothing wrong with South Beach, Zone, NutriSystem, Jenny Craig, or any other diet plan. There isn't even anything wrong with the Dr. Phil diet plan, and it was written by a full blown idiot. The problem is that dieters refuse to READ AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!

Tell that to the American Medical Association, American Dietetic Association, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, and many other leading authorities in the nutritional field. I kind of side with them.

I don't, because the ADA, AMA, AHA, and ACS are the main contributors to the current food pyrimid, and they got the durn thing UPSIDE DOWN! Oh, and C. Everet Koop has fallen and he can't get up! The perfect balance for just about anyone except maybe long distance runners, is 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and 30% fat. If you're a runner, you can go as high as 60% carbs, and if you are a body builder, you'll want reverse the carb and protein percentages.

Basically, the average American eats too much of EVERYTHING, so no matter which of the food types you remove from their diet, be it protein, carbs, or fat, they're gonna lose weight because you just removed at least 1/3 of their calorie intake! Add a little exercise, and you've got safe, healthy weight loss!

I agree with this post, but it has nothing to do with the Atkins Diet which is not a good solution for sustained weight control, not to mention it can be dangerous. Your post contains the key......eat less and exercise more. If you burn more calories than you consume then you will lose weight.

For bodybuilding, diet is dependent on whether it is contest season or off-season. During the off-season, carb in-take is greatly increased but during contest season carbs are greatly reduced. Protein stays pretty much constant year-round at the recommended daily intake of 1.5 to 2 grams of protein per pound of body weight.

Like I said, the only time a diet is dangerous, including Atkins, is when the dieter does not read and follow directions. Atkins reduces your calorie intke from carbs to practically nothing, but, and this is a big but (pun intended!) ONLY FOR TWO WEEKS! After the initial two weeks, you start bringing carbs back into your diet, but you only bring in complex carbohydrates, NOT the simple carbs like sugar, white bread, potatoes, white rice, white flour macaroni, that you USED to eat. The South Beach diet isn't quite as extreme as Atkins concerning carbs in vegetables and dairy products, it limits your saturated fat intake more than Atkins, and it includes exercise, and therefore I recommend South Beach over Atkins to my clients. But, I don't care which diet plan they decide on, I can work with it, as long as they follow it and stay with it.
