    Haha well I just recently found out it isnt that common to do what I do

  7. Hey Josh,

    Just caught up to the point of where I sub'd. Honestly, as someone who has done lower carb diets, I disagree with what your prof. said. A quick google though didn't turn up any studies to prove me right or wrong, so I PM'd AntonG420, who has argued previously on the side of low carb diets, so I am sure he can back it up better than I could.

    I just hate when in order to prove a point people lie. Why couldn't she just give an honest opinion and reason against it rather then making something up. We have to write a paper on a scientific study that was done from a science jouirnal. The purpose is to gt us used to reading actual studys and interperting them ourselves, so naturally I pick "The metabolic effects of low carb diets".. lol she is going to hate me.

    No they are not NEEDED and according to some people not really the perfered energy source it is just whatwe eat the most. I have read where people argue that most dieases today are dieases of society and are a result from societys high carb highly processed food lifestyle. Potatoes for example didn't really enter into our food eating until the late 1500s and even then it was very limited and was considered food for the poor people. Weather you are an evolutionist or creationist this would mean that we have survived without eating potatoes for a very very long time. Either way like I said before I do disagree with atkins diet but I think it is wrong for her to portray it the way she did.

  9. So yestarday was work and today is school. I have a quiz so naturally instead of studying I am browsing through AM and catching up with peoples logs.

    One thing I noticed yestarday was my hunger!!! And damn I was hungry! All day long it was like I couldn't kick it. I have been really good on my diet with avoiding eating unplanned food. In other words I don't eat food on the spur I only eat food I have planned out for that day because it already fits my dietary requirments I set for myself, and I have been good with firghting off urges really well, except for yestarday. I was at work so food options werent the best so I did eat some not diet friendly food (damn that double chocolate carmel brownie was good!) I am going to bring extra food next time so I have good food to eat incase I get these hunger urges again. I have read before on logs that prime sometimes makes you hungry so I am thinking thats what it is. We will see if I experience the same thing today.

    Now I hate when I make excuses for myself. Yestarday I effed up somewhat on my diet and there is no excuse for it. I have to hold myself to a better standard. Just so happens a facebook friend of mine posted this video he found on youtube yestarday and it is incredibily inspriring to say the least. I mean watch it! If this guy can continue to push through despite his situation HOW DARE I make such a petty excuse for myself. MAKE NO EXCUSES!!!!! Nothing can stop you but yourself and he is proof of that.

  10. Log looks great buddy!! Seems like everyone here has already commented on the points I was going to which is why I'm so proud to belong to this community!! Awesome to see all that progress!! I'm doing something similar to you right now, in that I'm taking a GH supp prior to working out, and I'm loving it. I just make sure that I don't take in any carbs an hour or more before I work out and nothing during, and most of the time, none after, as that would blunt GH release. Just some food for thought. Keep up the good log and hard work. Gonna give those face pulls a go here later today, looks more fun than plain old cables.

    Hmm.. For pre workout I usually have a AP cap then 20mins later I have a whey shake with 1/3cup oatmeal and 3 fish oil caps. Then I wait 1.30 hours then have 2 scoop jacked, 1 cap OEP and 3 caps powerfull. So my pre workout timing is good but post workout i typically pop a AP cap before I do my post workout strength cardio and then immediately after whatever I do I take another shake with whey and oats but no fish oil. So what your suggesting is I completely forgo the oats postworkout and stick with just a whey shake?

  12. Well, from my experience, and other peoples, seems that carbs during and real close to workouts can limit the amount of fat burned during the workout. If your getting results now, which you are, I wouldn't think there would be any need to change up, I'd finish up your cycle and then you will know exactly what you did and didn't gain from it, versus changing it up and skewing the results. I was just throwing an idea out there about carbs since your taking something to elicit GH release and are on kinda a recomp.

  13. Almost forgot to mention. After my current workouts, it's a shake and then bedtime. So for me, it's easy right now to forgo the carbs post workout. Your timing for carbs pre-workout looks solid though, no need to mess with success there. For future you could try taking in carbs later after your workout, like maybe an hour, that will give you more time to burn through reserves. I'm sure others more knowledgeable can chime in with useful advice about this.

  14. Thanks for the advice. I think I'll stop with the postworkout carb and maybe have a tuber with my post meal.

    Right now I am debating picking up another bottle of prime. I think I have enough for 2 more weeks left. That will make a total of 4 weeks. I thought it would last longer but guess not. Maybe I'll just wait till week 3 and see how I feel with the prime. Week 3 is soupposed to be the amazing week according to the prime booklet so if it is truely amazing would it be fine to keep it going?

    I was available for instant watch (I have netflix too) but I don't know if it still is

    And yea watching him really kicked my ass. If he can despite his situation I have no excuse that is acceptable

  17. ok well the conventional wisdom always goes against low/no carb diets. dieticians and doctors are taught using the US food pyramid, which reccomends 5-8 servings of grain daily. to them, high amounts of carbs are essential to good health. these are the same people who pay no attention to gluten concentration, PH levels of food, etc.

    first of all, its either low carb or no carb. in no carb, your body enters a state of ketosis. once the liver glycogen stores are depleted, the liver produces ketones that the brain continues to burn..instead of glucose. the energy in this diet comes from fat stores and consumed dietary fat. this is a great diet to drop body fat but not a bodybuilding diet. people who deplete their muscle glycogen through workouts will have a hard time replenishing that glycogen without carbs/glucose. however it is perfectly possible to live in ketosis, just like how our ancestors did before the agricultural revolution. you might not power through 2 workouts a day but if given enough dietary fat, there is research showing that physical endurance wont be affected.

    paleo people believe in a low carb approach. low meaning the ceiling is about 150-170 g a day. this gives you many benefits. your insulin sensitivity improves because you are not spiking the insulin and blood sugar throughout the day with super high glycemic carbs. vegetables are extremely low glycemic and fruit has a low glycemic load because of the fiber content, longer time to digest, fructose is processed in the liver, etc. eating fruit/vegetables/red potatoes allows us to replenish muscle glycogen without all the health issues thats associated with grains and processed sugars.

    so no carb/keto is a little more difficult to stay with if you lift/train, but there is no research proving that there is any harm. the best is to use low carb (up to 180 grams) and limit the carbs to fruit, veg, red potatoes.

  18. When I'm cutting carbs, cardio is kept short, HIIT style and I train in the lower rep ranges. I find it's easier to bounce back that way, as I'm not really tapping too much into my glycogen during lifts, and only really hitting it on cardio days. I would agree with the above statement about "Low or no carbs," when used for recomping and such. Every so often though, I'll carb up for a day just to shock the body and keep it guessing, plus, it lets me go harder at it next time I'm in the gym. I'm not talking overboard here, just some sensible carbs timed around my schedule for that day. It doesn't concern me if I don't lose weight for that day, because I know it's not enough to plateau me. Besides, I don't need to weigh myself everyday, I can pretty much tell by this point what's going on.

    Thanks for responding bro. Knew you were the man for it. Question though, by mentioning specifically red, are you suggesting to avoid sweet potatoes? I absolutely love them, and all I have seen about them is that they are a smart choice. Any reason to limit intake?

    no sweet potatoes are good. sweet potatoes actually have a lower GI. red potatoes are less starchy than white, they are more waxier. sincei its a borderline paleo food, its best to choose the most compatible to your body potato. so yeah stick to sweet and red.

  23. 9/29

    Had my quiz today, which I think I did fairly well on. I decided to just buy another bottle of prime and extend this. I counted my left over prime caps today and if I pick up anoter bottle and continue with the 69 protocol I should be able to about 4 more weeks which would make my total 6 weeks on prime. My OEP, AP, Jack3d, and powerful should last till then. If my powerful runs out I have some 1-carboxy I can take afterwards. Not sure if it is just as good or not. I am also toying with the idea of adding in some ephedera into the mix to aide with the fat loss and also help kill the hunger cravings I been getting recently. If I do it will be very minimal like say 25 grams a day split into 2 servings taking a couple hours after the OEP, but im still not sure.

    Anyway today was bench so workout was

    Bench x5/x3/x1
    DB Incline 5x10
    Face pulls with my rope 5x10

    oats are no good in my opinion. there is very little gluten but they are highly acidic like all grains. you also dont want to eat so much insoluble fiber. ive mentioned it before, you want naturally flowing digestion cycles....not a sped up process because you are eating a ton of insoluble fiber. going once a day > more than once a day because frequent cycles empty out good intestine bacteria. scientists say that the fiber twigs literally scrape the intestines forcing some kind of mucus to be released to lubricate and ease the damage. thats why you only need the fiber thats in fruits/vegetables. if you eat enough vegetables there wont be any constipation issues.

    basmati rice is good. i know rodja eats it post workout. the acidity is much lower than other kinds of rice. you can google the PRAL score of food, that will give you an idea how acidic or alkaline the food is.

    quinoa i have no experience with. im not sure if its sprouted or not which would make a difference in its anti-nutrient content.

    dont eat ephedrine. that sh#t is too harsh on the body/heart. if you wanna lose fat, put yourself in keto and do less martial arts. use weekends for re-carbing. let me know what else you need to know
