Re: How to post a Photo on the forum

Probably the way I post images the most is simply to copy the image url: 1) Right click on a photo and select 'Copy image URL' 2) Now go into the 'Full Editor' and click on the 'Img' tab above the text box and you should see it insert into where you have been typing :) 3) Paste your url in between t...

Re: My Squat Fail

Damn, I thought you had uploaded the wrong clip as you got completely to the top and everything looked great !!

Glad you are okay though, that's could have gone quite badly. I've seen people blowing their kneecaps out so you were really lucky. Strong lifting though regardless !!

Re: Beer and the high carb vegan diet

Were you low carb, when you were high fat? From what I understand it's the combination of carbs and fats that cause fat gain. Have been skimming through my gf's copy of 80/10/10 for the last hour or so. Lots of great info in there , and might be something worth checking out. Well I was mainly tryin...

Re: Beer and the high carb vegan diet

That was a good read, and I'll consider it. From a pure physique standpoint though, I'm very sold on the high carb low fat thing. I do have some vegan omega 3 DHA supplements lieing around, so perhaps I'll make a better effort to take them, though am feeling damn awesome since the change so far. It...

Re: Beer and the high carb vegan diet

I really don't believe that fat is the enemy, as long as you are consuming the right types. You need to be taking in decent levels of omega 3's on a daily basis ~ you only have to start doing a little research into longevity and you'll start to realise the importance of 'good fats' in your diet. SO ...

Re: Protein vs Amino Acids

Glad you made the switch back to the plant-based lifestyle! Not sure I have a good answer for you. A variety of plants, fruits, grains, nuts, beans should be covering all your bases. Quinoa for example has complete amino profile. I think you mostly need to deprogram your thinking about all macros, ...

Re: 22, Male, UK - Pop's Blog

You should get some valuable info along the way, and you are right in the sense that keeping a journal does provide a sense of accountability ~ especially when you start to get people looking through and commenting on it.

Re: 2nd Time Around

Hey Jack, welcome to the forum buddy. Sounds cool building bikes, you should post up a photo or two so we can have a look. I've done a fair bit of road racing, tough sport to be in. Did you ever end up competing with the weightlifting? It's really nice to have you here. I look forward to seeing post...
