Calebsmittys 1-Andro Run
- 01-18-2013, 12:22 PM
My weight has dropped 5 lbs. since I ended 1-Andro. I am at a waking weight of 235. I don't look as full and swole as before. I love being big. I'm going to bump up carbs in the evenings for a while to keep muscles fueled. Still following CBL style IF. No food until 12 noon and then no carbs. Carbs start pre workout and post workout. Protein still at an average of 200g.

Protein seems a tad, I think a average about 250 ed at 40% of my diet if that helps.LG Sciences sponsored athlete

I don't count macros fr the most part. I couldn't tell you exact numbers. I know I get at least 50 g for lunch. Where I slack is mid afternoon. I try to get a shake of 50 g around three before athletics. Sometimes I don't sometimes I do. Dinner is always 30-40 g and a PWO shake of 50g.
This past week my protein goal has been 250 G protein. 200-300 g carbs. And keep fat from good sources. My fat intake is never very high.
My schedule does not make it easy. I work long hours and I'm in the classroom most of the day. Eating 5-6 meals just isn't possible. In the summer it is but not in season.

i'm not criticizing, my friend. and i hear your dilemma..
just conversing my thoughts. you know what i think about fasting in general i think..and CBL, not a fan, AT ALL -- esp the way you described it to me elsewhere.
these types of plans go against everything i hold to be true and conducive to building muscle and maintaining controlled bf% levels, period.
i'm not insistent on a set number of meal plans daily, that is not my main platform of ideology, and i won't tell you you will be better off eating X # of meals/feedings daily (altho for me, i enjoy eating 6x daily)
however, all that said............
when someone says "i just can't get feedings in" i say, nonsense
there are many things you can do for ease of feeding.
liquid meals: protein shakes, w/ oats and PB or other goodies..
quick meals: canned tuna, with veggies or an apple..
meals packed from home: PB sandwich w/ natty PB, sugar-free jam and good 15-grain bread or Ezekiel, again with fruit or something quick on-the-go..
chicken breast/rice combo (a fav of many ppl), made up on a sunday for the week and packaged into individual serving containers..
many, many different and easy ways to eat on the go
i do it myself, when i travel
can't do it every single feeding, every single day, sure. but you can sure make it consistent enuff to accomplish your goals and fit your lifestyle.
(and for everything else, there's always Subway..just remember the foot-long is really 11")

Snag I appreciate criticism. I would rather someon tell me they don't agree than blow smoke up my ass.
I admit I typically don't make time to eat enough. I make efforts. This year my school decreased lunch time to 25 min and it has forced me to Pre plan lunch. Saved a lot if money to. I am making more of an effort to get meals in. I still get in 3 to 4 feeding a day just not on the conventional way. I know CBL goes agains conventional thought but I would encourage you to go to the website dangerouslyhardcore.com and read a little. I could email my copy of the book as well. Deeply rooted in science.
Criticism is motivation that makes me work harder and get my **** straight.

always glad to share. if the industry had more ppl willing to take time to share ideas freely (without their own agendas), we would have so much more understanding i think..
as for 'science' - well i like science, but i do not rely solely on it nor will i ever
some science is based (once again) on agendas..
and, always remember: science may look good in a textbook, but the BODY is not a textbook!

I was an RD. planned to make it my career but found out how much was BS. I read about nutrition constantly. Which may just confuse me.
If you would like the carb Backloading book let me know. It really is a good read whether you agree with everything in it is besides the point.

Update pic in PCT
And a pic for snags. I'm listening. 4 free range eggs, grass fed butter, two slices whole wheat with all natural strawberry jam
Well food pic didn't load.

So what are the over all goals now and beyond PCT? Maintain, lean up, continue to try to gain lean mass? You have a good amount of size would look huge ripped up.

when you say you 'like to be big' i understand, trust me..you feel large & in charge
clothes can hide the bad stuff lol..
appearance-wise, you LOOK even bigger, when you have a lil more shape and contour to that large frame - even if you are 5lbs or whatever lighter
w/o clothes - you look even bigger!
first time i noticed this was way back in the day, my buddy always strolled around 225ish, good size but was carrying some fat.
i dint see him for awhile, he went on a contest prep..next time i saw him, i was in shock.
dude was just mammoth! i asked him how much he had gained (was a lil naive back in those days lol)..
he laffed. said man, i weigh 190, just lost 35lbs!
was chiseled and mean-looking..set me off on a lifetime course of seeking how to make the most of my body shape/image

You know I always thought my legs were skinny. They can always be bigger but for 6ft I feel out 36 jeans. I just have a critical opinion of myself. I always think I can be bigger.
I have 18 in arms but my torso makes them look small.

i never had that problem haha
even tho everyone tells me dude you are huge!
i know the reality is -- i am 5-9 and 200lbs (give ot take a few lbs at any given moment)
that is a far cry from big. i've trained with monsters, stood next to guys who are say 6-5 and 250lbs lean -- those guys are animals
Jay Cutler (who i am slightly taller than actually) was guest poser at one of my shows, got a pic of me & him together somewhere in posing trunks -- i am an ant
there will always be someone bigger
but - not a lot have my kind of body composition, and size combined
it is a nice niche
hey btw - coconut oil in your coffee huh? interesting!
01-20-2013, 02:59 PM
Yeah. Use in protein shakes to sometimes. Great flavor and good healthy fat source.
5'9" at 200 and lean is pretty damn big if you wanted to you easily be 225-230.
My gym is pretty weak on serious lifters. Most work arms and traps religiously but little else. You can count on someone doing shrugs daily. Very few squat or DL and of those even less do them properly or with any significant weight.
I'm by know means a monster or even hyooge but where I train I'm one of the bigger lifters. Now just need to get leaner to show the muscles off.

Quads and calves
Squats - worked up to a PR 425x5. I felt great and if I had a spot might have attempted 7. Weight flew up even at 425. Almost mad at myself for not going for extra.
One leg squat (on hammer strength squat machine) 4x10
Hack squat on smith machine 4x10 (30 s rest)
Leg ext FST7 (finished all sets)
Superset seated and standing calve raises (no rest) 60 straight reps
Felt great today strongest since cycle. I attribute this to my squat and DL strategy. One week hard and heavy the next week lighter and high volume. I only free squat once every two weeks. Keeps me fresh.

Two books I've been reading some of you guys might be interested in. Good read and very informative.
Author Gary Taubes
"Good calories, bad calories"
"Why people get fat"
Both are eye opening.

He's a storyteller who picks & chooses his own selection from the body of evidence to fit his gripping tale. GCBC is what happens when you mix cherry-picked science with fantasy & fiction.
Don't get bamboozled by his quackary.
01-20-2013, 07:47 PM
rhizome, is there anything in this realm of bodybuilding, that you find to have no agendized basis?
i do not diagree with you here, at all
(is why i don't read 'nutrition' books anymore, stopped long ago)
but it seems you enjoy pointing out these flawed things a lil too much
01-20-2013, 07:50 PM
Well he admittedly says he is a reporter. So he researches an reports. I see no problem with researching one side and telling the story never told. Much like dietary standards which we all probably agree are wrong. Yet they are still shoved down our throats. That is also very biased based on a handful of individuals and faulty anecdotal science.
Taubes never claims to be a nutrition expert he merely attempts to shed light on the bull**** being fed to us. Like the idea you can eat carbs freely and at will but fat is bad. Aren't we still being told to limit fat and cholesterol and not carbs? I call bull****.
01-20-2013, 08:03 PM
Total calories today 3100. Prot. 289 g, carbs 229, fat 123g.
Probably going to add another snack I'm still hungry. Haven't had be bedtime protein shake yet.

I spent years in college studying to be a dietitian. The national nutrition standards are so out of whack its amazing. Actually the bodybuilding community has been on the cutting edge of nutrition since way before Arnold. It's to bad the government didn't listen.
Sorry for rant. I used to try to get diabetics to eat right lift weights,etc. it was frustrating which is why I'm a coach now. People actually listen now.

01-20-2013, 10:52 PM
even within the bodybuilding community, you have no definitive platform where everyone agrees on certain principles
look at the conversations we have had regarding IF, for example..yet, a large segment of he 'industry' practices this w/o a clue as to what they are doing, or a true understanding of what it really entails
monkey-see monkey-do does not equal 'cutting edge'

One thing I have been able to establish. People are very different and should eat for who they are. For instance I am so much more efficient as a fast and gorge eater because a) it suits my lifestyle b) it conforms to my body type and c) it suits my goals.
I would not however recommend it for a less efficient body type. Some people need frequent eating some don't. An efficient body type (endo) gets a lot more out of what he eats and it tends to sustain him for a lot longer. He does not need to take in large amounts to gain mass and has a tendency towards larger meals. Content still needs to be good though.

True DW. But what I was getting at is more geared toward my frustration with government and medical health and nutrition standards. Most normal people don't do the research or experiment to see what works. They only know what their doctor ( who knows little to nothing of nutrition) or government tells them. This is where I was coming from. That is why I feel I wasted years of my life studying dietetics. Carry on.
Have a great day.
01-21-2013, 09:42 AM
the problem here - well, do i really have to say anything about the govt standards for nutrition?
they can't even figure out other issues that are more pertinent to gvmt, let alone what foods one should eat
same with the traditional textbook in schooling, and the generic term of institutional 'nutrition' courses
but understand man - these are simply guidelines of minimum standards, meant to keep the average couch potato from developing third-world diseases and disorders like rickets, or scurvy..nothing more
certainly not geared to anyone who wants to increase the size of their muscles..or lead an active lifestyle..or make changes in their body comp..
01-21-2013, 11:33 AM
Another thing we have to consider that there is a very large confiict of interest for things like Dairy etc.
