Re: I am Back

Excellent story, glad to hear you are recovering. I have been bed ridden too and it feels great to be up and moving. Welcome back, looking forward to hearing about your Soloflex gains (I have no idea what this is). Say hi to the cows for me tomorrow morning!

Re: The Sun

I agree with you 100% the whole sun scare is bullshit and it annoys me immensely. Humans are built to be outdoors and its part of the reason vitamin D is essential and is synthesized from sunlight. I remember first becoming curious about the sunscreen push when there was an article about melanoma an...

Re: uphill farmer walk question

I don't think its inherently unsafe, humans have been walking down hills with weights since forever. Just make sure you are staying focused, absorbing the force and pushing your knees out so that you use your glutes.

Re: Lowering body fat % and gaining muscle

Depending on your training background you can do both, it is only really possible as a newbie. Whats your current diet and training regiment like?

Don't know about the quality I have had some friends do bikini shows, and I have worked with a couple people in person for shows. It depends on your budget and your commitment. The girls I know were paying serious cash.

Re: keto diet for vegans?

I think it is do-able, I have read diet plans where people do it, very very tough though. If you are just doing it for weight loss purposes its kind of hooey. In most studies a well controlled vegan diet outperforms low/no carb diets every time. The reason you lose alot of weight really quickly when...

Re: How do you eat 4000-5000 kcal?

When I ate up around the 4000cal range it was just about consistency and discomfort. I think you have to realize its going to be too much food and its not going to be fun. I never wanted to eat that extra 1000cal but I did. I would eat a normal meal, be full. Then start a second meal. If you are rea...

Re: Vegan and acne

Whenever I personally see skin issues, immediately I think there are issues in the gut. http://www.naturalnews.com/021914_large_intestine_skin_health.html# As you mentioned you have a leaky gut, so I would put a lot less emphasis on what you are eating and more on what you are currently missing.

Re: Seems impossible.

So I think if you just want a physique like Frank's you just focus on strength and volume. He is really small like 155lbs I think. Which is really easy to do with a vegan diet. You don't even need to focus crazy amounts on nutrition just make sure you are getting enough to recover from workouts. You...

Re: buidling muscle or losing fat?

I think It depends on A) your current bodyfat and B) your training experience. Losing fat is quick, but the less muscle you have the harder it gets.

Re: Seems impossible.

It is definitely doable it is just hard work. Eating whole foods + raw means you are going to be taking in a ton of fiber and water weight with everything you eat so that you will get full quickly. This is great for weight loss but not so great for muscle and weight gain. I know tons of people who h...
