Re: Movies that made you want to be a bodybuilder

I was lucky in having a bunch of friends who were big into bodybuilding in the early 00's (IMO height of bodybuilding) so we'd watch the videos of the times. Those were the days. I know they're hardly the spokesmen of health, but I'll always support and be a fan of steroid bodybuilding. Just think t...

Re: New Vegan question

I agree with Justin, in the beginning I quickly lost weight (around 15lbs) and while strength stayed relatively the same my recovery wasn't as good as it used to be. After upping my protein a bit and adding some creatine back into the mix I felt back to my old meat eating self. I haven't used creati...

Re: Meat & Drug free Powerlifting

Nice. Thanks for posting I'll be looking into it. I also saw you're on MD. I haven't been on that forum in years and it's good to see a strong vegan presence.

Re: Supplements...HELP!

I've had my experience with years of use of various supplements and really think creatine offers the only noticeable difference. If you got spare money to drop, go ahead and pick them up, but if I had to pick one it would be creatine monohydrate. There's for sure some water retention with creatine, ...

Re: Help!

Yes it's more than possible as you will just have to look on the profile page of this site to see. I do have allot of questions, The whole sugars metabolizing into fat argument is really not true. Definitely read Starch Solution, 811 diet, and the China study for information on that. You should be a...

Re: Bulking phase

Personal trainers are a joke in general. K. You obviously haven't worked with one (or at least a good one). And considering you're following a strength program developed by essentially a personal trainer (Jim Wendler). I don't mean to sound condescending, but when it comes to the general public and...

Re: high carb, low fat, low protein 80/10/10 (not raw)

First I think it's awesome you're thinking about bulking and are concerned about gaining too much fat. There are way too many people simply bulking the wrong way by eating high fat. You definitely can follow an 811 cooked diet and gain quality mass and strength. This has worked for me as I'll cycle ...

Re: Bulking phase

Are you serious on the gomad? This just peddles to my point that some of these strength diets are just excuses to obesity. I had a trainer who worked under me that did this and just left him with a inflated body and ego. He was the joke of the gym and soon was let go.

Re: Bulking phase

I guess my point is that you can still build quality strength and excel in other areas at the same time. These seemingly "hardcore" powerlifters can lift but that's about it in the performance department. I train with a few of these types who put out unreal numbers but are really just over...

Re: Bulking phase

I do respect and recommend Wendler's program, my only problem with it (and some powerlifters) is that it can be way to easy of workout. I follow a loose version of Wendler's program by doing more. You can still definitely get strong EX. for Bench Press Shoulder circles, 25 push ups, Back bends 25 pu...

Re: Vegan Shakeology

I've tried it through a friend and did not like the taste and it's way overpriced. You can make a REAL whole food meal replacement with some other vegan powders. I personally like Sun Warrior.

Re: Fluoride - poison or a protection to our teeth?

Yea I've got something against a classified neurotoxin being added to water that bioaccumulates. It just doesn't make sense if your source of water is tap water that's fluoridated and your whole family drinks it, isn't it possible that one member may be getting too much . I'm really against it being...

Re: Help with nutrition! Too much fruit?

To the OP, I think your calories are definitely too low. Your fruit intake shouldn't be a problem! But if my calories were too low...shouldn't I be seeing the number on the scale drop? Thanks to everyone for the feedback!! I know plenty of people who under eat and are overweight. This is nothing ne...
