I recommend the most balanced meal plan or diet that exists which is the 40/40/20 (40% carbs, 40% protein and 20% fats), or a variation like the 40/30/30 — better known as the Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears. This meal plan controls your carb intake, provides adequate protein and also moderates fat intake. In my opinion it’s the best meal plan for long-term weight loss without the typical weight rebound seen in many other diets. It provides adequate energy while losing weight and great satiety (the feeling of fullness after eating). Since my extreme dieting while I was bodybuilding, this is the meal plan I now follow. Bodybuilding brought upon plenty of weight rebounds for me – 10lbs was the typical weight gain the day after my show!!! Get a copy of The Zone book. It’s a little on the technical side but an awesome read.
