Suitcase DB DL- 55x6x4<---Up 5pds
Asst Chins- 65x6x4<---Up 5pds
BB Bench- 110x6x4 <--- Up 10pds(Felt like i could add another 5pds easy)

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?

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.

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

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...
04-11-2009, 02:51 PM
Ya i guess i have always had to consider overall health and tahts why ive done what i had to in order to get were im at today.
Thats why when i was younger i could still eat and eat and eat AND STILL would LOSE weight and end up in the hospital!
Yes i hate to have to use the conventional ish, but its the only thing that has kinda somewhat worked to keep me alive the last 17yrs! Everything that we have tryed, conventional or not has always ended up at a dead end and didnt work. My Drs are very confused and hate that pretty much everything a typical CC/IBD paitent uses can help keep them symptom free. Unlike me nothing has ever really "worked". My old boss uses Alao Vera juice 3times a day with a very small does of Asacol and hes been Symptom free for over 4yrs now. Same goes with many others i talk to.
^^^ Does all that make sence? Sorry in a bit of pain right now. Tryin to keep my mind away and focus!
04-11-2009, 02:52 PM
BTW if i havnt said it enough. Guys i thank you from the bottom of my heart with your help, knowledge, and encoragement!
04-11-2009, 07:32 PM
hey teg, sorry to be such a lame but can you explain to me in simple terms what CC is and how it hinders you. sorry again for being retarded.
P.S. does teg stand for INTEGRA?
04-11-2009, 08:41 PM
Hahaha No prob bro, dont feel bad! Ill give an understanding as best as i can! If you want to know more or do not understand something just say so and ill explain as best as i can to give a better understanding....
Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines. It primarily causes ulcerations (breaks/cuts in the lining) of the small and large intestines(just like if you were to cut yourself with a knife on the outside), BUT it can affect the digestive system(GI tract) ANYWHERE, from the mouth to the anus. Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis are frequently referred to as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Ulcerative Colitis itself can be cured by removal of the colon as that is the ONLY place its in. I on the other had have Crohns Colitis which is commonly used to describe if one has both as i do. Some drs just classify it as Crohns, period, some do not. There is NO known CURE for Crohns!
Thats the base of what it is, of course now is were we get into what i call the "Bi products of it"
Common symptoms of Crohn's disease include abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, poor appetite, fever, night sweats, intestinal bleeding, rectal pain, and rectal bleeding. Most of those are self explanitory really. But hinders my progress but not being able to properly "absorb" nutrients. In other words it goes right through me which in turn creates the diarrhea and weight loss.
Since Crohns starts off as "erosions"(much much smaller like Ulcers). As time goes on the "erosions" become real deep just like a true Ulcer and in fact do turn into one when left untreated/severity of disease! There in turn creates "scaring" IE scare tissue build up and stiffness of the affected area/areas which is 1 reason why a dr pushs on your stomach in certain areas. Hes tryin to feel for that "stiffness". Kinda like when you put your arm up and dont flex the bi muscle it soft, then when flexed its hard, same type of concept applies, just not in a good way LOL Anyways the worse(wider and deeper) the Ulcer gets youll get thinning of the outter wall and will create a hole, WHICH IS NOT GOOD! When that happens bacteria from within the infected area can spread, infecting adjacent organs and the surrounding abdominal cavity. As Crohns gets more sever it will lead to obstructions(narrowing of the inside) creating blockages and will not let through the "contents" that it trying to move through. Kinda imagine tryin to fit a softball through a straw!
Thats just part of it..... Does that kinda help? I can go on lol
Yes sir it does!

Food Intake has been bad today, not even worth mentioning really...... Will try to down Protein shake befor bed!
