Further, keep in mind that Anabolic Pump, while commonly conceptualized as merely a glucose regulator, actually mitigates energy expenditure and transfer as a whole; this is the manner in which it 'recomposes' tissue - through ensuring efficiency vis-a-vis guiding your body to either glycolytic or oxidative manners of energy expenditure when necessary, by inducing lipolysis, preventing adipogenesis, as well as inhibiting triglyceride and fatty acid synthesis. So, it does not merely help with glucose-related issues, but dietary issues as a whole.

my goal now is lose the "bulk fat" ill be around the same weight in that picture but leaner im hoping. plus the lighting was awesome in that room
i wanna do a level 1 entry show so well c what happens, i was told to shed some fat and see where i go from there.
time to start getting back on my other "vitamins"
edit: ah 1 more thing my diet now is alot more tight i think, in that picture i just wanted to c how ripped i can get and didnt really plan my diet too hard, just watchd what i ate, cut alot of carbs and ate most of my fat at night like im trying now, but im counting every macronutrient for this time around, i hope it works out for me.

My wife threw off my nutrition planning a bit this week. She accidentally bought 2% instead of skim milk. 5g fat per cup adds up over the course of a day.

Milk really is good for you...
I saw several lectures by a researcher out of Knoxville, Tennessee. He's found that consumption of calcium sets the body into lipolysis and out of lipogenesis and specifically that consumption of dairy products is superior to the consumption of calcium alone. There's something in milk that:
1) Spared muscle mass
2) Increases lipolysis
There was an upregulation of Uncoupling Protein 2 (UCP2) and an increase in body temperature observed in those on an increased calcium diet.
I think you'd be making a big mistake dropping milk entirely.
A surprising volume of scientific literature has cropped-up over the last several years that supports a surprising hypothesis: that dietary calcium, especially milk-source calcium, plays a big role in fat cell metabolism and bodyfat control. And not just any fat, but specifically trunk fat, which includes the abdominal fat that so many men struggle with, year after year. (And if you are affected, you know that it gets more difficult, year by year!)
In short, researchers have found that dietary calcium has an anti-fat, anti-obesity effect by suppressing active vitamin D action in adipocytes (fat cells). This results in increased fat-burning and decreased adipocyte fat synthesis. Very cool.
Dairy calcium (including low-fat milk products) is much more effective than other forms of calcium, which suggests that there is something in milk that promotes calcium absorption or retention.
The news on this front is getting better and better. Dr Michael Zemel and his group at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville have just released a study titled "Dairy augmentation of total and central fat loss in obese subjects". ("Central" refers to the trunk, or abdomen.) They found that, in subjects on calorie-restricted diets, modest increases in dietary calcium (in the form of yogurt) dramatically increased fat loss, while helping to preserve lean mass, relative to controls. Trunk fat loss (mostly abdominal) was increased by 81% in the yogurt calcium group, and the reduction in waist measurement was an astonishing 700% greater!
There's much more to tell about this, but for now just consider that the well-known fat-zapping and lean-mass-retaining effect of whey proteins (that you've read about here so often) may very well reflect the action of dairy proteins on calcium absorption and action. The bottom line for now is: Keep scarfing whey protein, pop some calcium, and stay tuned for more exciting details on the dairy/calcium/bodyfat connection.
Zemel and colleagues (2004) performed a randomized, placebo-controlled trial in 32 obese adults. Participants followed a standard, high-calcium, or high-dairy diet where all three groups decreased consumption by 500 kcal per day (1).
Those on the standard diet lost 6.4 ± 2.5 % of their body weight, on the calcium diet lost 8.6 ± 1.1% of body weight (a 26% increase), and those on the high dairy diet lost 10.9 ± 1.6 % of body weight (a 70% increase) (1). In addition, fat loss from the trunk-region was 19.0± 7.9% of fat lost on the standard diet, 50.1±6.4% on the high calcium diet, and 66.2±3.0% on the high-dairy diet (1). Zemel concludes that dietary calcium and dairy products significantly helped weight loss after decrease in caloric intake while also increasing the percentage of fat lost from the trunk-area (1).

I drink milk like it's my job. Always have, always will, and I'm usually always hovering around 8% bf.
