My 1st question is: Does Nutrisystem,Medifast,Nutrisystem and Weight Watchers really work? Thanks in advance for any comment. My 2nd question... I'm about the start the New Rules of Lifting workout plan and was wondering if any of you guys had any info on this. A friend of mine (who was in far better shape than me when he started) has been doing New Rules for about 8months now with great results and he was telling me that it was important to have a protein and a simple carb 30 minutes after lifting weights..

My question(s): 1) Is it THAT important? I mean I'm still about 80 pounds overweight, shouldn't I focus on lowering my BMI before I start adding in more protein and carbs? 2) If it is THAT important, how could I add it and still stay on plan. Due to my schedule, I have to workout at night, usually after dinner and I have been trying not to eat past 7 pm..

Thanks for any advice/input..

Yes sir! however you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else to confirm it as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you call the Nutrisystem guys because they can answer your Nutrisystem question better...

So I could essentially eat my carb that I normally have for dinner, do my workout, and then eat a can of tuna in water? Do you eat the small cans or the normal sized cans?.

To be honest, I wasn't looking forward to chugging down a protien shake after I worked out anyway...

Exactly. Eat your carb from dinner - Better yet, just eat your entire dinner and go apesh*t in the gym! I eat a large can of solid white albacore (or regular old tuna). it's 3 servings/can = 210 calories and 45 grams of protein..

I know that some of you will say that 210 calories for a can of tuna is too much on this plan compared with +/-110 calories per scoop of protein powder ... but it has over twice as much protein and it just sticks with you because it's solid - plus you just kicked your own a$$ in the gym, right?.

You're feeding your muscles - you aren't going to get fat eating tuna!..

Cool, I'll have to give that a try. Thanks, Sean...

As someone who absolutely can't stand tuna.....

Hard boiled egg whites or egg beaters work very well, as does lean boneless skinless chicken. Protein powder, especially mixed with cool aid is an easy 100 cal protein serving that does it as well...

I don't think the couple hundred calories will hurt you at all you burn way more than that in a 60 minute intense work out...

Comment #6

+1 Do the Protein. Don't care if it's a shake or a fish. Just do it if you're doing heavy lifting. I go for 30 grams additional myself on heavy workout days. Don't do any extra carbs. Your body will find that glucose somewhere else!.

Disagree. You need a some carb before you work out to have the fuel to do really push yourself...
