I have some GI abnormalities as well... Genetic from my pops. Occasional pancreas attacks - which is why I really try to keep sh*t clean for the most part.
Just monitor what kind of weight you are putting on... but you know how they say - if the sh*t ain't broke - don't fix it.

Hey man at this point a car is a car in this economy and if your in collage then your a lucky man imo! I have quite a few friends who cant afford car/gas even with a job or 2 and still have trouble payin for school! I wish you the best on selling it bradda! School as you know is MUCH more important. Wish more kids thought you bro!
Will do! I always seem to stay around 7-9%BF. Stomach always gets all teh fat of course, but at this point, i dont care, gaining any weight for me is good tho with my CC since me gaining more weight equals less chance of going back in the hospital!
VERY True! But i do APPRECIATE your advice! After this next treatment im thinking of trying my best to clean it up even more! This is the cleanest ive eaten in a long long time!
BTW bro are you still 185pds? 180 is my goal by end of summer! And since were both 6'1, you look HUGE compared to me even when i was at 175!!!
04-10-2009, 01:09 AM
Thanks buddy - appreicate that. I just say I'm between 185 and 190... As we speak I'm 189.
We have very different builds. Also, just think of what 15 or 20 pounds of steak looks like - then start packing that on yourself. 5 pounds of muscle can totally morph a physique.
04-10-2009, 01:15 AM
Very nice! My overall goal from the beginning has been to someday hit 200pds at around 8%BF
Ahh yes i didnt think of that. We are which i guess im goin to have to work even harder just to catch up to ya!
Hahaha Note to self think of steak when building muscle! I kinda like that! Mmmmmm Steak!

I may need help getting to 180 by end of summer, weather it be by reg supps or PHs.... Cause last year i couldnt for the life of me break 175pds no matter what training i was doing or how much i ate or of what. So thats when i decided im goin to try a DS/PH/AS etc.... And so thats what im reaserch now for not IF i get there but WHEN i get to that point to use it! Im highly favoring The ONE at the moment.... But who knows maybe ill surprise everyone here and go to straight gear!
K, boys i just downed my Probolic-SR Protein shake! Im off to sleep!!!
Many Thanks SC, TL MrBigPR and Buster for your support! Ill ESPECIALLY will need it this next week, heavily!

Hey Guys I need your expertness on a ? i have.
I have been thinking about putting 1scoop of my Purple Wrath in with my SizeOn. Is it a good idea? I did read something awhile back about why CL didnt put sugars in it or something?
Maybe i should hit up a CL rep?
04-10-2009, 08:46 PM
After reading about your condition i realise i have the exact same symptoms when i eat the same foods you do in conjunction with excercise, stress and environmental factors. I think i know some ways to drastically improve your life. PM me if your interested.

The National Health and Nutrition Survey reported that;
Less than 10% of Americans consumed five daily servings of fruit and vegetables
40% ate no fruit or fruit juice
50% ate no vegetables
70% have no dietary vitamin C
80% didn’t eat anything that had carotenoids
The number one vegetable in the United States is French Fries and that comprises 25% of all vegetables eaten.
Number two is Iceberg Lettuce and a close third is Ketchup.
If we can’t even eat the minimal amount of alkalizing foods it is no wonder we have such nationwide issues with degenerative diseases caused by acidity.
Dehydration is rampant often because the average American thinks that drinking soda or coffee is the same as drinking water. As well as acting as a diuretic, soda has an acidic range around 2.5 pH. It takes an incredible amount of “good” water to counteract the effects of soda. You may have to drink nearly 32 glasses of 7.0 pH water to eliminate the bad effects of 1 glass of soda. In addition to soda, coffee, caffeine, and smoking all contribute to raising the acid levels in one’s body, thereby contributing to serious health problems. It is important to understand that raising the body’s pH does not cure disease. It does however, allow the body to heal itself by normalizing cellular function and ridding itself of toxins. Also fruits and vegetables will be adding the minerals that are so important to maintaining good health.

O really? You still serving over in Iraq? Or are you on tour somewere else now? I have lots of friends and family that have/are serving! You guys have my support 110%! I try to pray every nite and i make sure my friends and family that are serving always get prayed for, now ill include you in as well sir!
Did you get an estimated time of return yet?
EF Si eh? That will be a nice project for ya and nice way to have some fun for sure! I miss my bros CRX EF with the built B16/GSR! Car was a blast!

Teg, you really should also pay attention to SWG's post above. That alkalizing diet planning he referenced above is about 30% of what my mom does for her job at an extremely expensive spa in southern california... People pay upwards of 2 grand an hour for a private consultation.
I constantly eat veggies and also green supplements and alkalizing tablets to keep my GI / Pancreas issues at bay. Also keep in mind that 95% of substances you take for BB'ing have an acidifying quality to them.
And nice work on the diet man... Just get them greens in there.

Timber be laying his beatdown with some good sound nutritional advice up in hee-yaa!!
Teg, you're a real warrior. To be training like you are with the condition you have....my winged helmut's off to you man!!
You have my respect and admiration for what it's worth. That, along with maybe $1.50 will get you cup of coffee. Not at Starbuck's though!! LOL
Keep pounding the weights and trying to pound down as much good food as you possibly can. You'll start putting on some lean pounds.
And I do wish I could get away with eating some of the stuff you can. I gotta watch every calorie in my old age!! The old metabolism ain't as fast as it used to be!!
THE PAIN YOU ENDURE TODAY WILL PRODUCE THE POWER YOU ENJOY TOMORROW!!

I should be out of here *hopefully* by the middle of July. As long as i have my food and weights, im fine.
I had a CRX EF when i was back in college. Dropped a GSR, had it turboed and redid the interior myself. Helps having a mechanic for a dad. Hopefully i can convince him to take the ride down to see me and drop the new engine in my hatch. I fixed the body up before i left. Shaved moldings, replaced old bumpers and such. Outside is sanded and primed. IM going for a sleeper look, no fancy body kits and such. all about PERFORMANCE

Yea i was talking about his GI situation. If that can help, hopefully he can "avoid" a big sick and be on the track to 200. If he can "control" his symptoms then he wont have to get sick, unhindering his progress
04-11-2009, 02:53 PM
Just saying, the conventional bullsh*t medicine he is taking for CC is only further acidifying his body and putting stress on his internal organs. The major concern of IBD and CC is developing cancer - which is also encouraged in an acidic host.
Definitely need to balance out the cost and benefit of running these extra supplements and hormones particularly with a pre-existing condition...
