  1. Billy Simmonds, an ideal physique in my opinion too. Plus he is a 'vegan Aussie' just like me, therefore he must be cool! >.<
  2. I guess I take it now too, as it's added into my Soy Protein Isolate. I have noticed faster recovery, since switching to this protein powder.
  3. I am stuck and don't know which one to eat this morning. Please vote with your choice quickly if you read this as it is breakfast time over here right now! Much appreciated. P.S. Don't ask why I am doing This, I do not know why I am.
  4. Macros from today: 3,030 cal Protein: 223, Fat: 71, Carbs: 367, Fibre: 50, Sodium: 3,548 This is the least amount of cals I have eaten in a while, (1500cal deficit).Oh well, at least my protein was high (will prevent catabolism).
  5. Is it flavoured? If so try this: Mix 1 scoop of pea protein with 250ml (8oz) ice cold water, pour it over your weetabix in place of the milk for a change every now and then, it's delicious, trust me! If it is unflavoured pea protein, throw in a sachet of stevia or something to sweeten it when shaking it with the water.
  6. No question about it, the link below is by far the best for determining your caloric needs: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=121703981 I think it may have been copied from thiss link: http://www.thespartanwarrior.com/post/5989831287/calculatingcalories Or if you want a lazy alternative: http://nutritiondata.self.com/tools/calories-burned (This even incorporates a caloric value for teen growth)
  7. A quick question: Do you have, or are you getting a protein powder?
  8. I am aiming to compete within the next 12 months for the first time ever, after I get to around 185-200 pounds. I have been training hard, keeping a journal, and have been eating big (really big) and am slowly growing while maintaining around 10% bodyfat.
  9. I am now adjusting my macros after 4 weeks of them being at: 55/20/25 (c/p/f) My new Macros: 60/20/20 (c/p/f)

  13. Most definitely be rigid with tracking while you get used to it - you'll be amazed at how much you're not eating even if you think you're eating a lot. While it's a pain and an invest, getting a small food scale is also pretty handy because measuring cups and things of that nature aren't the most accurate for portion sizes (I recently found out that method had me overestimating my intake). Yeah, I used to think I was eating 100 grams of oats for breakfast using my measuring cup, however it turned out I was actually eating around 120 grams, vegansludge is right, scales do come in handy!
  14. God you've been busy havent you Herc! You nasty piece of work posting all that (lol, jokes).
