  4. Snag, what diet principles do you adhere to? Just your general philosophy on nutrition.

    in a nutshell:
    micros are every bit as important as macros..
    hi-protein, higher-fat (good fat), moderate carbs as a general lifestyle (carbs fairly clean at all times)..
    eating every 2-3hrs, multiple times daily (5-6 meals or more daily, so keeping caloric and glycemic load threshholds down)..
    multiple amino sources (so not eating same exact thing every day - unless there is great variance in every meal daily)..
    bigger meals/more carbs earlier in the day, gradually shifting to smaller meals and higher fats/lower carbs towards night..
    and - for lean bulking, a consistent ebb & flow of cals so as to keep metabolism humming along nicely and reduce chance of fat gain.

    oh - and i absolutely LOVE beef.

  6. I kind of got that impression from looking/reading on your meals, thank you for explaining.

    Props to you on portion control, I just struggle with when I try and use a moderate carb approach for lean mass, then I turn to carb cycling.

    6 more weeks of carb cycling then I WILL succeed using carbs! Well probably haha.

  7. carb cycling is a great approach too.

    much like constant change in the training routine, i am not averse at all to constant change in the diet - so long as it remains controlled and not helter skelter.

  8. I just miss eating sweet potatoes consistently, so I eat about 5 on carb ups :-D

  9. LOL

    recently came across a nice mix..

    i absolutely hate cottage cheese, so i like to disguise it a bit when i eat it.
    i found it goes good w/ bagels for breakfast..and i mix it in some of my protein shakes..

    at supper, i mix cc + sweet potatoes, and it tastes pretty damn good.

    beats putting ketchup on it - which i used to do when i was younger.

  10. How the HECK do you mix those two?!?!?


    I tried it in my Greek yogurt before, worked rather well.

  11. well, it's not 'mix' technically..rather, take a bite of each, chew together.

    i don't do yogurt.

    i like heavy whipping cream tho............

    lately I've been combining greek yogurt, cottage cheese & almond butter - add some oats - folks seem to be freaked out when I tell them what it is, but doesn't taste bad at all....

    nice.

    similar to my shake that has cottage cheese, strawberry protein powder, almond milk, oats and water..

    the strawberry protein/cottage cheese is horrible on its own to me, but combined with all this it's actually good.

  16. I don't know where you live, but if you have a Kroger's grocery store you should try to check out their cottage cheese. I used to eat it alone it was that good. I don't like any other brand of cottage cheese. The reason Kroger's is so good is probably because they mix a good amount of whey (not whey protein concentrate, just whey) into it, which obviously changes the flavor. It also makes the nutritional profile better for me (5g carb per 15g pro).

  17. i shop at Kroger all the time man - it's where i usually pick up my organic selections, brown rice syrup, almond butter, etc.
    never tried their cc..been using Daisy 2% small curd, specs out to 90cals/.5 cup, 2.5g f, 14g p, 4g carbs.
    will check into it - but not hopeful. i dunno what it is about cc - taste/texture both absolutely revolting to me, always have been.

    Ah ok, good stuff. Their 2% tastes better than any other brand cc, but I recommend the fat free one. It has a really "soft" texture and no sourness to it, whereas other cc I think has a more rubbery texture to it that's kind of weird, but not bad (it's the taste that gets me more than anything).

  20. pick of the back here before bed..damn i been making progress.





    thinking i may have to lay down and rest for a week to 10 days, need to heal up the elbows before i mess around and hurt myself..

  21. Take care of yourself brother! 10 days now is better than 4 weeks if something goes wrong!!!!!

    absolutely my friend.
    tough for my mentality to rest, but wise indeed.
    resting the elbows..still getting in some leg work tomorrow.

  23. i am very happy with the last 5 weeks.
    (other than the elbow deterioration that is ahahaa)

    will attempt to work around it it for awhile..lower body day #1 this morning.

    quick feedback on the first week of TRS -- have i said how much i LOOOOOVE this stuff??
    awesome combination of compounds, exquisite quality.
    this time around, i figured i'd try something different..rubbed some sustain alpha on my genitals as directions indicate you can..
    just a lil bit. and - i'll be damned if it doesn't provide a lil boost to the machine! (pun fully erected errrr i mean, distended no wait not right either -- how bout intended)
    TCF is great as well, just makes you feel gooooood.
    seriously - this might just be my fav group of products from Primordial. hyooge thumbs up!

  24. lil food pic, since it's been awhile.
    before i got to munching on it, was 10oz lean (96%) beef, chopped up with onions and shrooms, can't see the bleu cheese crumbles anymore cuz they already melted.
    paired with the usual 5oz salad w/ tomato & red pepper (balsamic vinaigrette/olive oil dressing this night), and couple carmel rice cakes for dessert. (low carb meal, 670cals total)



    i twinged my back bending over for a runaway crouton....


    SUN 10/7
    rest

    MON 10/8
    lower body, scheme #2

  25. oh, forgot to mention..
    i've settled in to a finite postWO nutrition..altho i like switching things up, this is sweet in its simplicity.
    i strive to keep macros ~80-90g carbs/40-50g protein, minimum fat for this timing.
    been rolling with :

    1 can Sierra Mist Natural,
    shake of 2 TBS brown rice syrup + 2 scoops isolate



    that sierra mist is crisp and refreshing, cheap too..natural ingredients, real sugar.
