TBH I think that the argument breaks down when we consider that people usually cook legumes...just as they usually do with potatoes. Also, he then goes on to recommend oatmeal - which I don't disagree with, but which then completely contradicts his previous postulations about "anti nutrients".
I think you misunderstood my point.
Some people eat certain carbs because they have more protein or more fiber (legumes in contrast to potatoes and white rice). This is not recomended, as you're better off getting your protein from animal sources and fiber from leafy vegetables and fruit. It's simply higher quality protein in meat than legumes and grains (it's actually the protein part, gluten, in wheat that cause problem for some people). By getting your fiber from veggies and fruit you're automatically also getting more nutrients. Think of you calories and macros as a buffer - how can we fill it the most optimal way?
I feel better eating like this at least, but of course I eat a burger every now and then.

What would you guys recommend as shoulder exercises for Oly lifting? I've just been doing different presses (Ohp, push and jerk) with some rotator cuff work as prehab.
Same for upper and lats; as I feel like they are lagging quite a bit as well as shoulders.
Thanks in advance!
Also agree with squat with comfortable form; most of my friends whether they train for general fitness or bodybuilding squat in some form of hybrid.

Gluten causes an autoimmune response in people with coeliac disease. It's absolutely fine for everyone else. Note that plenty of animal sources also illicit immune responses in people - alot of people are allergic to a protein in chicken. Shellfish allergies are common. Nuts. Fruits. Beestings. etc etc. Just because someone's allergic to chicken, does that mean that healthy athletes should avoid it?
Proteins in legumes are also demonstrably fine and in healthy when cooked properly.
The measure of protein quality is the amino acid composition. Yes, animal sources are generally better at this, but if you balance the amino acid content from different sources there's no reason to worry much about this.
I agree that people should eat more fruit and veggies.
What I don't agree about is the idea that carbs need to come from starchy sources like potatoes and rice.
There is nothing wrong with taking in carbs that also contain fibre and a bit of protein. Why on earth would I avoid a food that contains carbs, protein and fibre? Breaking things into separates doesn't mean they're better. Maybe it makes it easier for some people to plan their macros.
I primarily tried this to see if it had any effect on how I felt / looked after my post workout carb loads. I cycle my carb intake which leads me to eating 300-500 grams of carbs during say 3-5 hours. Getting the bulk of those from sugary sources like cereals and white bread is the easieat way to get it all in, but it made me crash hard and bloat. I felt like I could fall asleep making studying difficult. I think a lot of people can relate to this.
assistance movements for classic lifts or for what? most presses are fine, PP has better crossover for the jerk, btn pressing is usually also fine.
you don't really need specific bodypart exercises if you're a weightlifter, you need assistance exercises to fix whatever's keeping you from putting more weight on the classic lifts.
also CS did you make the 80kg?
