    That depends on who you ask... In my opinion, the general rule of thumb is to eat a variety of foods to eat "clean" including vegetables and dare i say, fruits as well. The body recognizes macronutrients - fat, protein and carbs not whether you are eating ice cream or a cheeseburger. What it ultimately comes down to is the difference in calorie load in the foods we consume. The main goal and key should be a diet properly moderated with nutrient dense foods and your occasional calorie dense foods as well to maintain sanity.

    If I had to categorize foods, I would go by nutrient density. That doesn't mean the less nutrient dense foods should be avoided, just shouldn't make up a significent amount of your daily food intake.

  7. Probably need to really look at the full breakdown. Type of fats. Type of carbs i.e. refined sugars etc. And then there is the whole metabolic rate that our own body breaks down the nutrients. A young active guy can get away with eating ice cream and cheeseburgers but the older he gets usually the fatter he will get if he continues to eat that way. As mentioned earlier you should look at the macros of the foods you eat and what you cook them in(olive oil, butter, vegetable oil, etc) it all adds to the total.

  17. Fiction, unless you believe it.

    i have found personally that what i eat effects me 2 days later...for example i will look leaner and no bloat at all if i eat clean. this is just me. dunno if its mental or physical but its what i have noticed about my body.

    Everything is pretty dynamic meaning each component of training and seeing results is dependent upon having everything - diet, training, rest - in order. If you train the day before - your diet matters, if you train that day - your diet matters, the day after is no different, as you are recovering from previous training sessions. Water intake also plays a large role in your training sessions as well

    Thanks i never understood why people would say that its independently focused day by day . Id much rather follow a plan on a daily basis and not worry about it . If i eat good and train hard and sleep well , i should get huge

  21. Great Post Really very informative.....

    A lot of people focus on the really minute details that really make very very very little difference in the real world vs a clinical setting. Don't get caught up in the bull ****. I think I started posting here and a few other boards about 6 years ago and ended getting sucked into the forum OCD syndrome.

    If you want results, real world results and want to be able to actually look good lift weights, eat, and sleep and avoid obsessing over the minor details. Adding mass is easy, looking great is easy, not stage ready but walking around with your shirt off and feeling great is EASY. Don't over complicate it.

    This! All most people need to do is a minor cut back in carbs and some additional cardio. Sometimes cals can stay the same, just hammer out 25min of HIIT at some point in the day
