Soldier gets shredded with Pro Xanthine 500-xt(sponsored)

Page 3 of 12 First 12345 ... Last

  1. My biggest concern right now is adding up my macros. Some foods are easy as **** to add up but I am uncertain on a lot of the serving sizes for food at the cafeteria such as yogurt, granola, spinach, etc.


  2. Fat Secret or Myfitnesspal are both good apps to use on the cell phone. Can get a pretty close count on calories and macros using them if you search a little.

  3. Yeah, that's why I like having a lot of macro pros around me. I'm looking at other peoples food logs and pooling together some ideas. Food creativity ideas are always welcome on my log! Next semester will be awesome for me. Get a huge fridge, a kitchen area, rice cooker, george foreman, and a car to pickup food on the weekends. As for now, we can definitely tweak what I have in my room.

    Yeah I've been using these for sure. They work great! Only problem is the serving sizes.. Idk how many servings I'm taking in, could be under or over counting macros. Not by a lot, but still. First time logging, especially with food. Trying to make it very detailed and accurate.

  5. I'm not sure what part of the world u live in.....but I go to Sams Club and get pre cooked frozen Tyson Teriaki chicken breasts and daily chef mesquite grilled chicken breasts. Very easy and u can just throw them in the microwave. Also I get the 5packs of daily chef canned chicken (large cans) and ill put a cup of brown minute ready to serve rice in with those along with fat free ranch and either hotwing sauce or low fat bbq sauce. Quaker minute oatmeal with protein powder and splenda mixed in for the mornings. I will also throw in some egg whites with that from time to time. Beef jerky. almonds. Greek yogurt. Ground turkey or beef. Can find the turkey and beef on sale at grocery stores in the manager specials pretty often. Cook it all at once and eat it within 2 days. Just a few ideas.

  6. Can't wait to switch my meal plan over to the smallest possible plan and start buying my own food. I've been compiling a list of ideas from Kleen's logs, Snags food porn pics, and a few other logs. And my world aint so bad =] just lacks good variety.. completely.

    Talk to thw chef if thereis one and see what they can do.they should be able to hook you up.i have a couple student bbers at mine that I help guide to food choices and they are worth.there salt they should be able to get you some macros.also check out my fitness pal or livestrong.they have calculators.

  8. Not people at the salad bar.. they just refill stuff

  9. Just an update on the effects of the supplements tonight.. Been taking 1 pro xanthine in the am around 10-11 and the other around 4-5pm. Once it kicks in, I am awake with clean energy. No cracked out feeling, and the heat kicks in! But I've noticed that the heat has been cutting out much faster than other thermogenics. Also, the food suppression is hit or miss for me! I am still taking 2 Epi-V in the morning as well. Haven't noticed any significant changes in size or weight yet. I think the Epi-V is begging me to eat while the Pro Xanthine 500-xt says "No don't do it." All in all, I am feeling really good though with the supplements. No crashes, good energy, dedicated to keep the morale high! I have noticed some extra push in the gym though. It's creepin up in the back of my head that I can do more than usual: more weight, more sets, more cardio. It's either just an ego boost or these supps are talkin to me!! Didn't have time to do legs/core today. I guess I will hit legs and core tomorrow in the am and hit shoulders and traps at home! Going home for the weekend, my cousins communion. Stocking up on food along with returning to Iron City(my home gym)!

  10. have a good trip . you going home for summer break? students are going home here too gonna be quiet in the gym this weekend. like i said livestrong has a pretty good site too for serving sizes aeven has branded names on the food tracker like Sam's , walmart, whey protein brands its quite cool.

    Well the trackers are effective, the only problem I personally have is that I have no idea how many servings I am serving myself!!! I can't eye up 1 cup of Spinach on a plate! And nah, I get out of college around May 14th ishhh for summer break.

  12. In on this! Maybe for the measurement stuff get a food scale and some measuring cups. Usually there will be a weight on the serving size and you can use that to estimate. Just a thought

    Thanks for getting in on this! But I also eat at the cafeteria, so I can't steal a plate of spinach or anything haha

  14. I started this too, makes sense I am getting shredded and can use the energy...

  15. I reckon that you can do it without a scale by using your hand as a guide.

    Palm = 30g protein
    Fist = 25g carbs
    2 fingers = 15g fat.

    Just a rough guide but when you wanna get super nit picky, use a scale.

  16. Thanks runner ill keep that in mind. Going home today for the weekend. Will post up my lifts later tonight.

  17. No worries bud. That's how I do it but mainly use 2 fists full of broccoli at each meal for my fibre.

  18. Day 5, legs and core

    Squats:
    135x10
    205x10
    205x10
    205x10
    155x10
    135x15

    Calf raises: Body Weight only
    4x25(slow and controlled)

    Decline Ab Crunches: Body Weight
    4x20

    Russian Twists:
    3x20(25lb plate)

    Excited to be back at home, I miss hitting the squat rack when I'm focused and in my own environment. First leg day back and I've been wanting to hit higher volume on my leg day for a while now. For some reason 205 was hard for me on.. it really annoyed me and I kept pushing through it. It felt like I rebounded and kicked it into overdrive so I did a good amount of sets. Legs, glutes, hams and calves feel good right now. Can't wait to rip up shoulders tomorrow with my friend.

    try going to 2 caps upon rising/1 cap 6-8hrs later
    But I've noticed that the heat has been cutting out much faster than other thermogenics.
    don't understand what you mean here..can you elaborate?
    Also, the food suppression is hit or miss for me! I am still taking 2 Epi-V in the morning as well. Haven't noticed any significant changes in size or weight yet. I think the Epi-V is begging me to eat while the Pro Xanthine 500-xt says "No don't do it."
    appetite suppression is evident in individual form, and yes sometimes it is there and sometimes it is not..
    this is just how the metabolism works; it is the overall effect that we are seeking
    as for epiV "begging" you to eat, quite honestly i have never heard epiV to cause increased hunger in anyone (i think this is in your mind!)
    and i will state here once again, for clarification purposes for readers moreso than for you since you are already aware:
    altho the PX/epiV stack is potentially an awesome 1-2 punch, i would rather see you attack thing from different angle rather than using epiV at this juncture, as this is more of a finishing "final edge" product than what you are trying to use it for as a weight-loss aid
    All in all, I am feeling really good though with the supplements. No crashes, good energy, dedicated to keep the morale high! I have noticed some extra push in the gym though. It's creepin up in the back of my head that I can do more than usual: more weight, more sets, more cardio. It's either just an ego boost or these supps are talkin to me!!

    loving the positive outlook and improved drive, glad to hear things are going well, and look forward to your continued journey of bodyshaping and education

    enjoy your w/e

  20. Thanks for the input snags. I did add it in for weight loss and I see your point. But hopefully it"ll help me recomp. As for weight loss, I was around 206-208. Weighed in this morning at a whopping 201.5! My mom said she could tell I look leaner already so I guess my combo has been effective so far. I will increase the dosage to 2 pills in the morning and 1 pill 6 hours later. I think that is a good plan because this formulation is very smooth! Maybe this combo wouldn't be as effective for people more cut up than me but I got a good amount of room for improvement. Gonna kill shoulders later tonight! But for now, it's time to go to the communion party

  21. Lookin good mang lookin good!
    E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

    I mean this with no disrespect but all that drinking is gonna c0ckblock your fat loss severly.

    Increases estrogen, insulin resistance.

    If your gonna drink, make it red wine or the following mix:
    2 shot tequila
    1 serve soda water
    Lime to taste.

    The tequila will dry you out and won't cause any imbalance in hormones, but make sure you have some protein and fat before hand so the body soaks it up.

  24. I actually ate pretty damn clean yesterday. A lot of veggies, chicken breasts, some fruit. But yeah, beer was a bad choice. It was just one of those days because all my friends were home from college for the weekend and it was all too convenient. Terrible hangover today. Wokeup and had some fruit smoothies with my pills to cure my headache. Back on track, hittin shoulders tonight. Having some mahi mahi, broccoli and caulie flower soon

  25. Some mahi mahi, broccoli, cauliflower, shrimp and green beans. Home cooked meals work for me.

    No weights, just arms extended all the way out with palms towards the sky. Shrug shoulders forward 3 times and that is 1, went up to 25. Then you keep your arms up and and shrug in reverse up to 25. Then clap your hands over your head to 25. Your traps will be killed after that.

    Going back to college tomorrow! Ill miss my homegym Iron City.

  27. Nice looking sensible meal ...

    it's not about disrespect - it's about ignorance
    ignorance = lack of knowledge
    and i don't think Irish really has a clue how detrimental these things are, when he is trying to not only make some bodycomp changes, but also truly understand LIFESTYLE changes going forward

    runner nailed it - alcohol is highly estrogenic, and beer is about as bad as it gets

    you want to drink? fine
    but at least understand, when you fail to make the changes you want to make, and sit there scratching your head when this is all said and done wondering why you can never get below 12-13-14% bodyfat no matter how "hard" you try -- just know that you have sabotaged yourself. period.

    now THAT is what i am talking about
    big win

  29. I'm sorry for letting you down. As for lack of knowledge, I knew what I was doing. My friends all texted me and I debated it but had to go party with them.. It's been a year since I've seen all of them. I have severely cut down on drinking at college for the past few weeks but it was my decision to do so this weekend with family and friends. Doing cardio soon and hitting chest later. Will post food log and lifts tonight! Lastly, upping my dosage from 2 px a day to 2 in the am and 1 later.

    Bodyweight after this weekend- 203lbs

    Again, thanks a lot guys. I'm taking in all of your advice so don't hold back! It's my first log and I need to listen so I can fix things in the future.

  30. nah you're not letting me down friend, not at all..this log and your goals are about YOU!
    i just want to be clear you are aware of the ramifications of your choices, is all
    every choice we make in life has some consequence..all about understanding those consequences and being able to live with them
    all right then, enough philosophy..back on track
