    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    You guys are right, I have tweaked my diet alone and I feel more energetic and see some changes. If I stopped drinking here for the last 3 weeks, I'm sure I'd see great progress. I am not mentally there yet, I apologize. But I have stopped drinking on weekdays and multiple times on weekends. Been drinking once a week and I need to fix this. Maybe I can stay in with my girlfriend for the rest of the weekends, It'll help me from being bored since all my friends go out.

    Jealous! I have cut down on my drinking so much over the last year and a half and its HIGHLY apparent by my body comp. When u steer clear of the drink not only are u keeping the extra cals and toxins out of ur body but the late night drunk feedings dissapear. Next tiime drinking comes up think about how it will lessen ur next session at the gym. Like Snags said this is a lifestyle change if you want to really attain yyour goals.

    Heck yea a free Tee? Cant beat that!

    Yes cutting way back on the drinking will do loads for your physique. I am not saying you cant drink ever but its good to limit it for sure.

    Quick Supplement Summary... Went to 2 PX pills in the am and 1, 6 hours later. Still felt really good, not over stimmed. I have not really sweat today from the intake though except for my feet haha. When I got to the rec, I sweat really good though.

    Food Suppression- Really effective but when it starts to wear off, I need to feast like a king.

    As for the Epi-V,
    - I experienced my joints starting to feel dry
    - Mild Acne, in random places. Not extreme, just red and painful
    - Libido, kind of funky. It'll kick in really good, then sometimes it's off a bit. Totally fine though still!

    way to keep track man..macros once again not looking too shabby
    let's touch on the topic of micros again - and this is just educational, not a critique
    the power of micros lies not only in superior nutrition, but also in regulating and controlling blood sugar/insulin levels
    to understand the power of insulin would take awhile to explain, but to make it short, for the most part we wish to control this, as there are not many timeframes during the day we want insulin released uncontrollably
    insulin is a very anabolic hormone; however, it is anabolic (meaning growth-promoting) to both muscle AND fat tissue
    therefore, look to substitute the micros that induce insulin release ie simple carbs, with more complex carbs that are slow-sustaining and don't create the fast "spike"..perfect example of this is white rice vs. brown rice
    I will every time make the choice to consume brown rice over white - and you get the added benefit that there are more nutrients in brown than in white - so, it is the healthy choice to make!

    Thanks a lot, I had no idea brown was that much different than white rice! I thought if anything white rice was better haha. Yeah, my micros are lacking. All the food I have in my room is macro related. I still need more greens in my daily diet as well. As for carbs in general.. How are they looking? Am I eating too many? I need to do more research on micros for sure though.

    carb-sensitivity is a very individual thing, some ppl can eat 300g daily and lose weight and cut
    for gp for you currently, i think you are doing just fine bud, splits look good
    it is cool seeing you learn and expand your own knowledge

    I'm just a young gun.. Got a lot of room to improve and expand my knowledge. I've already learned more than I thought by listening to advice and counting everything I eat. It's cool how I can tweak and adjust my diet to my liking. Of course it is still lacking in some aspects, but if anyone here saw my carefree college diet before this... they'd off me. I'm talking, very strict on lifting but eating 2 chicken patties, fries, a ton of salt, with soda and a wrap to go..

    like snag says just tweek it if you need to. if you can finds some frozen diced sweet potatoes add them to your brown rice for taste. diced onion a little lite soy man that is a meal in itself. this is stuff you can make ahead and just place in Tupperware to eat when you need it.i'm not a fan of quinoa but the protein in it is off the charts for a grain. same thing add flavor from spices and vegetables to change it up . no need to eat bland to eat good, just experiment. nuke up some egg whites and freeze them and add them to whatever you want to add protein to dishes. you need any advise on cooking on a budget let me know. i'll do all I can to help.

    I know you guys say I can get a lot of micronutrients through vegetables but what kinds of fruits should I eat as well?

    Some noticeable changes after the first week.

    - increased vascularity
    - look a little bit leaner in general
    - loss of 4.5lbs already
    - some added definition in core and back

    Looks like everything is going well. Keep working on that diet though.....could have been easily been six pounds minus the set backs. Good job sofar though.

    Initial weight is the easiest to drop. Now it's time to buckle down, keep eating clean and lifting hard! Lifting back today, should be fun.

    fruits are pretty wide - more an issue of when you want to be eating these
    generally keeping fruit consumption to mornings (earlier in the day) is better..fruit fills up liver glycogen, and too much consumption can cause spillover to adipose tissue

    grapefruit is an amazing fruit, works like a complex carb of sorts in the body..this is the majority of fruit I eat
    I also consume strawberries and blueberries
    for quick energy, a banana or an apple works well..these are good choices for preWO meals
    pineapple provides awesome nutrition..of course oranges are great as well

    kiwi has long been known as a "super fruit" and is packed with vitamin c, but newer research is showing that some ppl have unknown allergies to kiwi (much the same as many ppl have allergies to cow milk, yet are unaware of it)

    My cafeteria has apples, bananas, and clementines that I can eat there and take some back to my suite. As for vegetables, they often run out of them and slack on refilling. Also vegetables are only in the saladbar and you cannot get them to go

    Felt sore still from shoulders and chest days. My Traps are still sore from my Barbell Shrugs because I never perform this exercise. Still a good day of lifting. I'm trying to bring my back up to par with the rest of my body. I have always lifted back but somewhat half assed it, unlike the rest. Trying my best to strengthen it up. Since I went from 164 to above 200 in one years time, I can no longer do a full pullup workout.

    sure bent rows are great obviously, huge fan of pull-ups as well..if you cannot do enough regular and have access to a weight-assisted pull-up unit, try that until you gain enough strength to do them unassisted..deadlifts with help here as well

    I am trying to strengthen my row apparently
    Really been putting a lot of pressure on my lats. My lowerback is weak as hell, been conditioning it before I start dead lifting.
