    That is true, I just tend to run into other people who thinks they can eat shit as long as they have a protein shake now and then.

    I'll still maintain that it's not hard to get the recommended 1g protein per kg body mass per day by simply eating right. Getting it all from milk would be silly but that's, of course, not what I said either.

    So, yes, I basically agree with you, I just think most people don't _need_ protein supplement as long as they put a little effort into educating themselves about what they actually eat. Same as vitamin supplements, really. However, if you by ignorance or choice don't get enough protein from your regular meals, then sure, have a shake, it's just not necessary, given a reasonable diet.

  • Just how bad is alcohol when working out? I'm on beer number 10 as i type this, but it's ok, because i'm also quitting tobacco right now.

    I've gone a week without snus now, and i feel pretty good. The secret is having your stomach full at all times. Working out also helps, because it makes you more tired, and hungry. The backside is, beer is good as shit for filling me up, and making me tired.
    So if possible, i'd like to know how much of an impact 6 liters of 3.5% beer would have on me after walking 10-15 km a day. Combined with some situps, pushups and what not.

  • Fucking drunk swede :P Now, I'm not going to go on about the health effects of alcohol as I do enjoy a few beers now and then too, however, alcohol contains a lot of energy. Even though it's just "folk├Âl", you are most likely going to be putting on weight.

    You can drink a good amount of alcohol and not kill your lifts but it's not recommended. The point of the balancing act is that general health and building muscle requires a reduction of drinking and an instantiation of better habits and food goals.

    i.e. you can drink, but not all the time if you want results.

  • I don't see how can you not get enough protein from your diet. Really, I mean, what the fuck are you even eating? Don't you get some cheese, eggs, meat, fish, soy or milk? You've got time to go buy some protein supplement and make a shake, but not to cook some food?
    Seriously, I don't see the point.

  • I don't intend to drink as much when i feel like i'm safe off the tobacco. That could be a month or a few away. In the mean time, i really need to fill up me guts though. Beer is a sure thing.
    My only worry is that my fucked up knees won't heal in time for summer.

  • Alright bros, I want to loose 30 pounds by September. Every diet I've ever tried has either failed or I failed. The only thing that worked was Jenny Craig three years ago and I lost 30 pounds before giving up and cheating, then I gained all my weight back. I'm 15, 5'9, 250 pounds. I play football and use my schools weight room Monday-Thursday when it's open. I have gained a lot of strength, but I haven't lost any fat. Any diets good for a budget too, cause I'm tight on money. I just want to get back down to 220, where I was at 2 years ago and look better for when school starts up again.

    Any tips on diet and exercise would be great.

    tl;dr version

    Always give up on diets, use weight room for football Mon-Thurs, 15 5'9 250 pounds, 30% body fat, gained good strength in past 3 months from weight room, need tips to loose 30 pounds by September.

  • i dropped 20lb in a ~3mo by reducing calories to 1500/day and running 3-4 times/week for 30min.

    i would eat ~5 meals a day of ~300cal each.
    no crazy diet fad stuff either. lots of fruit, veggies, bread, oats, noodles, rice, meat, eggs. i just cooked all my meals so it was easy to track the calories and i kept a meticulous food log.
    adkins puts you into a state of ketosis which is harmful to your body. it is an unnecessary stress to your system.

    eat well, just eat less, and do more cardio.

    Keto ain't harmful at all. Droped 20 kgs in 3 months on it and strongly recomend it, it's healthy as fuck. For more information read "the ketogenic diet" by Lyle McDonald.
    I don't claim reducing calories won't work, but well, there's nothing wrong with Atkins and works miracles too.

  • So, my mom's complaining that she's gaining weight and not feeling quite good about the way she's eating, and asked me about Intermittent Fasting (I'm on the leangains program). She's particulary interested into cutting refined grains from her diet, and losing some fat.
    She's into Pilates, twice a week, and walks for one or two hours every now and then, but of course she doesn't lift. How should she feed herself? She's on her 50s and must weight about 50 kgs, I don't really know how should she plan her macros/calories/stuff.
    So well, help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

  • Cut calories but without cutting nutrients (if anything, cut calories but increase nutrients as much as possible - via nutrient-dense meats like liver, vegetables and supplements).

    If you're prone to rebounding then go for overall nutrient and macro balance rather than an extreme, or at least start in the middle ground and tweak from there.

    Usefulness of low-carb/keto depends on your metabolism. If you got fat on carbs then it's not a bad bet though not a guarantee.

  • Let's hear about your successes.

    In 7 weeks of lifting 2x/wk i have dropped 2.4% body fat and added about twice that amount in weight (which i assume is muscle).

    how about you?

  • Not that I follow this word-for-word myself, but I'm pretty sure I've read about older women in similar situations having success with http://perfecthealthdiet.com/the-diet/

    Or rather look at the blog for the weight loss version. They recommend IF fairly strongly.

  • Jesus. If you do, make sure you get a lot and extra minerals (salt/potass/mag/etc.) because alcohol + exercise can deplete them hard.

  • Potatoes, oats, onions, eggs, whey powder (shop around you can find it really cheap), canned tomatoes on sale, some canned salmon or sardines, bulk cheese like swiss at costco, supplements
