  1. I guess military wants "the biggest bang for its bucks" so this books looks for highest performance, the greatest profits for minimal input. I guess it have real, objective and realistic view on protein intake.

     

    P.S.

    It looks like there is whole book online, you just have to click on the image.

  2. My favorite so far is Neven's. Your setup reminds me of this 24hr fitness I used to work out at over here that was totally hardcore. Equipment and cement, nothing more. They actually didn't even have a women's locker room which I found kinda weird and upsetting, there are many serious women bbers. The most serious bbers here are all women.

     

    Is that rust all over the metal? love it. It's like a dungeon/torture chamber.

     

    Although Emmybear, your gym is amazing and canopying/ziplining is tons of fun.

     

    Hehehe, no that is not rust, mostly of it is not rust to be precise, it is some paint to keep the rust off.

    Yeeah it does look really hardcore, especially to comparison with Emmybear's gym.

    Every time I show it to people it remains me of New York, Al Capone and the gangs.

  3. This is where I train.

    Flat, incline and dips.

    The bathroom.

    And the bag, innocent but always gets banged.

  4. I've seriously gained a lot of strength. On every exercise I'm lifting 20 pounds more ( benchpress was 226 pounds today, pullovers were 120 ... ). But like I said, I weigh less. How is that possible?

     

    It is possible in my opinion as xjohanx said that you gained mass and reduced fat, and also that that you have more of energy by eating less and the last thing but not the least is that you are using better technique.

  5. The type of carbs matter. White flour and sugar have a different effect on your insulin levels compared with leafy greens or whole grains.

     

    If you really want to understand the effects of different foods on your insulin levels, I highly recommend the book "How Fat Works."

    You have to buy this, heh, NOOT :) But thanks on your reply, both.

    I'm reading something about it and more and more I'm disliking that approach.

  7. What do you think about those meal combinations.

    The purpose of it is to get insulin under control, as they say if you have all day protein + carbs meals your gonna become insulin insensitive, but if you add 2-3 meals of protein + fat along with 2-3 meals of protein + carbs you're gonna get insulin under control, make your body better insulin sensitive so when you eat a meal that is combined of protein + carbs it will gonna be better absorbed in cells and when you eat protein + fats then it will also give you energy but burn the body's fat.

    So in the end you are getting bigger muscles with minimal fat gain.

  8. Great information in Dr. Greger's video...but I'm not sure I could make it through a whole hour of his rather, um, distinctive speaking style.

    That bothered me to. I have also watched one movie from the same author and you think to yourself, like I would never give this video to one meat eater, no way.

    But thanks God I listened to whole tape because I think he speaks good stuff, and from the story he told I think he really takes a good insight in to the essence of research.

  9. If you consider yourself to be a bodybuilder what goes beyond that? What does bodybuilding do that goes beyond your idea of what you are being successful at when bodybuilding? I ask because I see dudes and dudettes on magazines and I imagine they make bodybuilding their life much like an athlete but I wonder if that is just it for them. I know you who are vegan while bodybuilding use it to advertise for your cause but what about beyond that? What level does it go beyond self gratification for you? When I ask this I want you to ask yourself not just answer my question please.

    say you're opinion.

  10. So, I'm having some problems with my stomach. It is always bloated and I always have gasses. Why? I think it is because of too much fiber I consume. From the statistics in Diet Organizer (computer program for organizing diet) it looks like I eat somewhere from 46-110 g of fiber a day, and the recommended doses from US RDA are 20-35.

    A lot of people are concern about too little fiber in their diet but there are some people with just the opposite. I think I am one of them.

     

    Do you have a bloated stomach or diarrhea sometimes, gasses or anything, even constipation? These are some of the symptoms of too much fiber in the diet.

     

    I'm always eating some kind of salad or a fruit with my oats in the morning, or beans over the day, and the beans and oats give enough fiber for the recommended dose (20-35), even more. And in that program, The Diet Organizer, you can also see how is your vitamin and mineral status going on the base of food you eat, and for me it is high above the US RDA, except for the B12 and vitamin D.

     

    So, I was wondering do I need any of the salad, and if I do, why? What is the purpos?
