well when youre gonna have something high fat that day, cut out some of the carbs for the day to balance out your total calories so that you dont end up way over where you have been. I think you're doing great and you deserve whatever you wanna eat to get you mentally focused back on your diet plan. A cheat meal has no purpose really other than to psych us out and offer a little bit of change, but mentally it can go a long way.
Thanks for choosing **** products bro. EVery single one I have tried I loved. The only one I have a love hate relationship with is our Better Protein bars and that's only cuz the pan is gone between me and my girlfriend in no more than 2 days hahaha...
Anyway, keep up the good work and enjoy those wings.

I agree you need a "cheat" day , even years later mine is and always will be some sore or pizza/calzone!!! whole wheat and fat free cheese in the mix but to my mind it's still a cheat day

Late in. Keep us posted! Sounds like a solid plan. I lol'd at your name by the way.

Haha, seems like people are liking the name, it's true though, mine is stupid :P
This week I have been off my game, we had a crazy security audit at work and prep for it etc last week hurt a bit too. Less sleep, workouts less intense, and diet not as perfect as I'd like it. With me, when not perfect, I undereat, don't get enough protein and my body hates it, I can tell.
Trying to correct things for tomorrow (Thursday)
On the upside, I am bringing a tub of protein to work (Trutein I love you), & shaker cup. This will help with the undereating when I get caught up and cant grab a meal. I am the #2 guy here, so a lot comes down on me. Not an excuse, just becomes hard to get in the proper nutrition when everything around you needs you ALL AT ONCE ALL THE TIME! :P
Sorry, needed to vent a bit there. haha

So just an update so people know I'm around and still at it. Yesterday was a day I realized things were happening. I ended up having to go to a new notch on the belt. This was a nice small accomplishment. It means things are working, and trust me, nothing has worked for a long time, so this is huge.
It is slow progress, but at this point, I am any progress is great. Slow and steady is fine with me, time goes by so damn fast, I'll get where I want eventually.
January was a good month, it got me into new routines and me ready to start lifting heavy. So February is off to a great start. I am doing 3 day splits now. I like this so much more, the day between weights workouts give my muscles time to recover and joints to rest. I am doing cardio in between, which is much needed. So I am still at 6 days a week, and I like this, I like many of you love the gym and even making no progress in years, I still enjoy being there and the endorphin rush.
Diet has been usually great, I can pick a day here and there I coulda been better. But the longer I go, the more motivation I get to clean it up even more.
Supplements I have changed up a bit. Realizing I want to do a DS stack of activate+triazole+lean xtreme in apr/may/june. I pushed titanium and erase into February, A week into this and NO side effects except (maybe placebo) strength gains in the gym. All my staples are still the same, I am making my own pre-workout now though which also could be contributing, waxy maize + aakg + beta alanine + citruline malate + krealkyln + glutalyn (i dont like caffeine)
Previously having size, I can see some of my muscle coming back, I never had probs gaining muscle, I know how to train and eat, so never an issue there. It's nice to see some old muscle back, and I know that will help with the fat loss.
This is where March comes in. I am considering taking the help of a stim finally, OxyElite Pro and EndoAmp Max for cortisol control.
Oh also, for post workout, I am using a scoop of oats + whey now (optimum nutrition) + wheyology.
So far so good, just concerned about my carbs still. I am trying to keep them only around weights workouts, pre/post. and then 1 other meal a day. My goal right now, and I may need to drop it, is 150g carbs on weights days, and <100g a day on cardio days. Thoughts?
Anyhow, that's my update for now.
TL;DR - Things are going well, but slow! Diet is good, but could be great. Workouts are SOLID.

Nice update, grats on the progress. Keep rolling my man, keep rolling!
02-10-2011 09:51 PM
Everytime I look in the mirror and get that blah feeling, I just say, slow and steady, slow and steady. 1yr from now it'll be better. It helps.
02-11-2011 10:58 AM
Slow and steady is right. The best way is the slow way. Glad you have the commitment man.
No comment on the carb amount. I suck at weight loss and don't wanna give some off the wall advice.

Just read through your progress, keep it up!

First post, Hi..
Just want to add my 2 cents here. Im Hypo, and on levothyroxine, ANY fat burners, will ruin your blood results. I was on Meltdown, and went from 4 reading to 250 in like 3 weeks time.
Be sure to NEVER miss a dose of meds, and drink alot of water bro..
And cycle it, like 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off. Im keto, and the fat is finally starting to come off..
14 years hypo,
Great luck on your goals Brother

really the how much carbs you have is mostly a bunch of nonsense. you can lose fat at 400g of carbs a day, depending on how the rest of your diet is structured and your source of carbs. Twinkies - bad idea. Apples - good idea. I used to believe in the low carb idea, but the more research I did, the less I found any scientific evidence that it made a lick of difference. Now my average day is 200-300g of carbs, and i'm rarely below 150. Some days easily over 400.

@ALLLOUT Welcome to these boards, I mostly lurk for now , but there is tons of info out there on this board, moreso than most. I think you'll dig it here if you're serious about changing anything with your physique.
I don't do stims, so I am not really worried about fluctuation of my TSH etc. I have been stable on my dosing for about 8 years now. My numbers are good and I feel fine, why screw that up? I probably have ever missed a few doses in 8yrs on my meds, so i'll be fine
and of course on the water, but what the heck do you mean by cycling water? I think I'll stick to drinking it everyday. haha

Small status update, things are going very well. I have a long journey but I am really impressed with the progress I've made just since Jan 3. 45days essentially, but I see significant changes. The combo of great diet, great workouts and proper supplementation is finally a trio that can make some results for me.
I can't help but look forward to my 6 month and 12 month goals. Hoping I stay injury free and get there. I'm pretty excited.
02-18-2011 01:52 PM
I absolutely agree, when and only when you are producing proper ammounts of insulin and are not carb desensitized.

I am usually using my carb intake for specific goals, usually morning, pre workout/post workout on weights days, and mornings and middays on cardio days.
This seems to be working so far.

I'm not sure why, but I felt like updating this thread since it's been a year and a half since last post. Maybe because I am (rare) a bit bored at work today.
Anyways, here we are 1.5yrs later.
In April of 2011 I decided to go to a ketogenic diet. Life-changer. I had done keto in the past and it worked, not sure why it took me so long to go back.
As of Sept 2012, I have reduced my waist size by 12inches (54 to 42) - I don't weigh myself because I honestly don't care what it is. It's always higher than I'd like to see, and that's just demotivating. As long as my clothes keep getting bigger on me, and my bloodwork is good, I am happy.
So I cheat once a month, that's it. Otherwise I lift heavy 3x a week, cardio 3x week and 1 off day. I have been cycling, what I call cuts and bulks, but honestly it's all more like a recomp. I just try and change things up to give my body a break at times. When I do 3 months of calorie deficits I def see the loss slowing, so a month of 2 of keto but higher calories let's me build some strength and then I go back into calorie deficits.
I've experimented with the following: during the "bulk" months, I've done some TKD with waxy maize pre/post workout, I def feel a strength increase with pre.
Also on cardio days I have experimented with some IF'ing (16hr fasts) - With keto, this is actually very easy an effective. I do this 2-3x a week still.
Keto is the most important factor in my weightloss but I have added supplements just for fun, because I enjoy the research and testing, and I have some extra $ to play with.
ECA- I can't do ECA longer than a month. I believe I do definitely feel some adrenal fatigue, and I end up tired ALL day long. When I drop back to just caffeine, no worries.
Natty test boosters and etc - They work for me, as well as popping in erase. I feel the best on DAA + Erase + anything with forskohliin. For some reason Forskohlii and I get along well. I always can tell when I am on it. I'm on a bulk right now and using anabeta, and my strength is up, and hunger isn't too bad. Still too early to tell what's going to happen though.
Other Fat burners - DMAA is fun at times to stack with caffeine, but I have to be in the mood for it. DCP is amazing stuff, I am loaded up for the next yr. Someone as large as I was, (still kinda am) the research on TTA is just a must, especially for fixing a wonky fatty liver.
Staples - Fish oil, multivitamins, cissus (bad right shoulder) green tea, ala/alcar/coq10, oximega greens, I'm sure I am forgetting stuff.
Other: I lovvvvve Blue Growth, actually the fishoil, multi, greens above are also controlled labs products, great stuff there. Anyways, I don't know if Blue Growth is actually causing a GH response and helping, but the reason I am using it is AMAZING SLEEP. I feel rested every night I take it. I tried some of the others like HGHup and HGHpro and Blue Growth gives me solid sleep ongoing.
Preworkouts: 1 word. Craze. Seriously I have never had better workouts than on Craze. I love agmatine also, and space out my dosing since I get a weird reaction with the 2 together.
Postworkouts: Humapro and Trutein. I love Trutein, it's the only protein I use now, low carbs too so it fits right in. Have you guys tasted cinnabon/banana cream? seriously wow.
and I think that's it? My goal is to hit 36in waist or below by next summer, so I have some time. Since I do have a thyroid condition I lose slow, but I am happy with my progress. Everyone notices and that's kind of fun. I am a huge proponent of a low carb lifestyle and can't really see myself changing away from it. I am too happy eating/living like this.
