    Default Re: You could eat

    Or I could brag about weighing in at a massive, bulky, and daunting 150, which is less than the rest of us weighed in Junior High School.

    Default Eat!!

    There's nothing wrong with enjoying yourself. If doing it so often bothers you, eat something low carb (for the sake of insulin) or have a salad or some fruit. As Steve said, don't eat if you don't want to. However, if you feel like scarfing down the entire building (I.E., Garm's average snack) then go right ahead and treat yourself. You have to find your own rythm in the scheme of things. Don't allow diet to run your life and cause you to miss out on memories with the kids. I allowed shit to control me for way too long and almost lost the love of my life. It's not worth it.

    Default Here's some info...

    The WOD is the Workout of the Day. You can find it on the homepage of www.crossfit.com. The system operates on a 3 days on 1 day off schedule. The program has produced some really solid performance gains for me. Jump on the messageboard over there and get yourself an account. All of the guys there are extremely helpfull and more than willing to answer any questions you may have.

    Supposedly ester c is a bit acidic. The main reason I take this though is because it comes with the citrus bioflavanoids which are touted as being extremely beneficial. I have also heard some rumors that Vitamin C can act as an anti catabolic, though this is just Bodybuilding heresay.

    I would really urge you to give the Crossfit program a try for a couple weeks. Most likely you will be hooked. As far as diet goes, find what works for you and stick with it. Personally, to reach my goals, the paleo diet warrior diet hybrid has worked exceptionally well. It may not work for you. You're going to have to do a lot of experimenting and testing to find your "groove."

    Keep us posted on your progress and don't hesitate to ask questions. That's what these forums are for - exchanging information. Oh, yeah, and of course getting kicked in the nuts by Garm.

    Also, What do you run the 40 in and what is your vertical...the reason i ask is because all of the workouts i have seen on there seem to be variations of olympic lifts or seem to at least stem from them. I read some of your older stuff about your dl and bp maxes and such. Do you still do those exercises? Anyway, thanks for the help, again, and i plan on keeping in touch regularly.

    Default Re: No post workout nutrition?

    I have adapted to this over time - my current feeling is that it's probably best to eat a little after a workout, but I sometimes workout in the morning and, if I'm hungry, have a sizable snack instead of a small one at 4pm. Otherwise I still don't eat right after my workouts.

    Default Assuming humilispuer isn't lying

    or grossly miscalcuating his changes in body weight, you'd have to be less-than-intelligent to follow his diet advice. According to him (see below), he originally went quickly from 190 to 110 on a crash diet. That was a year ago. That was 42% of his body weight. Even if you don't have an eating disorder (unlikely), you could easily shrink your heart or kill yourself doing something like that.

    People who nod their head when he posts because he has abs and agrees with your opinions on carbohydrate consumption are being completely irresponsible if they believe this post:

    Let's not stay so open-minded that our brains fall out.

    Default Bodybuilding is an eating disorder

    Dysmorphic space cadets who spend more than 2 minutes a year considering whether their pants make their asses look big, if their abs are pronounced enough to pass muster on Queer as Folk, and micromanaging their diets for strictly aesthetic reasons are mentally ill. Not joking. Men do not do that.

    Default Garm you make me laugh.

    Default There's a difference

    Wrestlers and MA guys are often lean as hell. They bust their asses, may be weight class athletes, or whatever. Shawn Mozen's picture of the MMA fighter doing the kettlebell swings from today is a perfect example. Most people who consider asthetics would want a physique like that guy. They just wouldn't want to train hard enough to get there.

    I don't see anything wrong with young single men keeping aesthetics in mind as a (not primary) factor in their training. Any guy who says he doesn't like it when a new, nice-looking girl in a bar keeps grabbing his bicep is either lying his ass off or gay.

    But making it the sole factor is why even guys like TC Luoma talks about the fact that everybody in the BB indurstry is a freakin' head case. Starving yourself to get thin is indicative of a real problem, and every once in a while this forum starts to swing towards Crazyville when it comes to following diet advice. It's like a bunch of chubby lemmings racing towards the cliff.
