    What's the most consecutive days you've had the same thing for dinner?

    For me it's 8. Went duck hunting with a guy one weekend. We both got our limits both days. A limit is 6. He gave me his ducks. So I had 24. I had 3 grilled bacon wrapped ducks a day for 8 days in a row.

    Think of a bone in whole chicken breast, but about the size of a pigeon or baseball. Sprinkle some seasoning on it then take some regular bacon and cut it in half. Affix the bacon with toothpicks and grill it bone side down until the bacon is done. When the bacon is done, the bird is done. Don't need any plates, just eat it right off the bone. The bone is pretty thin, so you can give it to your dog.

    Like three weeks when I was in the hospital in December. Almost had the same thing every meal even

    Outside of that, maybe a week? We went to mexico when a was like 5 and the only thing I ate Or even would eat was fries and candy from the gift shop at club med. Lol

    Breakfast tends to be very similar though on a day to day basis, if not the same.

    Commitment then, but looking back at it, complete waste of time and energy as the calories for the whole 6 meals was bad.

    It did help me understand that consistency can be in more forms then just the meals you eat.

    what do you mean? too many or not enough? macros weren't good? i was in my best shape as far as being lean and strong when i followed 6-7 meals a day but over the years realized i had no stamina following that program. goals changed, however to get back to looking a certain way i feel for me at least, it's the only way to go.

    Damn. I thought I was weird for some weeks eating the same dinner sometimes 4 nights in a row (salmon, rice and vegetables). I don't think I've ever eaten the same dinner or meal more than 4-5 consecutive days in my life.

    When my wife and kids went on a visit to some family and I stayed home, I ordered the same burger and fries four nights in a row.

    That’s what comes to mind for me.

    With breakfast I eat the same thing every day for months at a time. Then I get a bit bored of it and switch to a new thing, rinse and repeat lol. There may be some minor exceptions but mostly it's the same thing all the time.

    Last year it was eggs, beans and bacon every day for months while cutting

    Now it's been fatty fish and two eggs on a bread every day since December

    Today it's peanut butter on a bread and milk so I guess it's time for a new cycle

    Edit: Oh and salmon, rice and vegetables is hnnnnnng

    Normally two, as my wife and I we cook say, 1kg of chicken breasts, and eat them over 2 days.

    BUT, after we got married we ate the leftover food for over a week. I remember there were at least 100 mini burgers remaining, amongst loads of other stuff.

    You cut eating bacon every day? I know it's certainly possible but did that fill you up adequately for IIFYM?

    Isolating nutrition as the only factor, I agree, but muscle loss is almost certain if it means you stop routinely training at the same intensity owing to the deficit. I know what you mean, though.

    Eggs are very filling though... I have a huge appetite and my eggs in the morning with some low fat cottage cheese leave me full until the afternoon sometimes, if I don't eat lunch. Wonder if bacon shares some of these magic satiety properties? I love how it tastes but often feel kind of off kilter after eating it, so I don't often have bacon. Still a decent source of protein and could be a psychological boost to make things a little more exciting if you're relatively restrictive, otherwise.

    I am not sure. I have seen some randomized trials that put overweight and obese people on crappy diets, extremely low on calories, and they were probably not even lifting. Yet no detectable muscle loss differences between groups (normal cutting vs the very low calorie diet).

    When you have a lot of fat the body will probably prefer to dig into that instead of the muscles.

    Yeah, but they're untrained. The example is not comparable because they're not reducing intensity since their basal training was already presumably nothing. If you take an overweight powerlifter and they ate a severe deficit and reduced their training intensity significantly over a long period of time, I'll eat crow if that person ended up not losing muscle.

    Sure may not apply to active powerlifters.

    But fat sedentary people will tend to carry more muscle than thin sedentary people as the fat people carry around a weighted fat vest constantly - i.e. added resistance. And I would expect some differences in NEAT downregulation between groups so differences in «intensity» + losing weight means you are dropping some of the resistance from the fat vest so there should be some potential for muscle loss.

    In general I think muscle loss is overrated and people who panic about it just carry way less muscle underneath than they think. They think they are losing something they never had.

    Especially when you consider that all definition aside, fat itself can contribute to the "shape" ultimately produced by whatever underlying muscle is there, and through clothes this can be an effective illusion.

    We were just talking about how we eat eggs every day.

    By the way, I think I will seriously try the Vince shake.

    EDIT: Ah, you're talking to us not anyone else reading it.

    I've been eating four eggs a day most morning since I was like 14. If there's a heart disease risk it's already too late for me and I don't care.

    Back when I started training again in 2015 I did make my own protein shake using 4 raw eggs, milk and chocolate powder. Mostly just because it tastes better than protein shakes you can buy. With milk I prefer to just drink tons of milk instead of drinking the whey protein shake stuff.

    Google «fertilized eggs follistatin» for some broscience backing the Vince Gironda shake btw. And «chocolate epicatechin bodybuilding» or something.

    I also averaged 3-4 eggs a day mostly for many years. After joining this site I think I have unconsciously reduced my egg consumption to about 2 daily...

    I would rather die than stop eating eggs.

    Without eggs I would not be able to suppress my appetite. I would then get fat and get a higher LDL than with frequent egg consumption...

    While I absolutely love eggs I hate chicken. Duck on the other hand is delicious
