I haven't eaten oatmeal since I was a kid. I don't know. It's pretty yucky (no offense). PB is always good. Not sure what whey is. Do you have this everyday and do you feel energized (say from 9-11)?

Whey = whey protein. I use chocolate.

I can't speak to how full it keeps me, because i usually a cupful of it for breakfast and then a cupful as a mid-morning snack at work. I mix a cup of oats, a heaping teaspoon of pb, and a scoop of whey protein and mix it all together,. It tastes like an oaty penutbutter cup.

I have been making shakes with oatmeal, vanilla protein powder, almond butter, blueberries and banana. I cannot recommend it enough, has helped me bulk up and tastes amazing.

Milk + whey + blueberries/assorted berries is about equal to a milkshake in terms of taste/consistency. Just throwing that out there.

Of course, if you use a casein/whey blend it tastes even thicker and creamier.

Reminds me of when I got a milkshake for breakfast when it was my birthday icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Overhead squat is looking good, I think I'm finally getting rid of some of my flexibility issues. And as all of you o guys know, proper overhead position is pretty important in a succesful snatch.

The closest thing I have to chocolate right now is Nutella. Will that suffice?

Since your breakfast is pretty much goop for the most part, do you make a point to eat something decadent for lunch and dinner (IE burgers, pizzas)?

Do you live in the states? then kop some ON whey. Nutella has lots of empty calories.

My lunch and dinner usually consist of lean protein and veggies/whole wheat carbs. My (bulk) recipe rotation is:

Turkey Chilli
Turkey Meatballs with whole wheat pasta
Grilled or Baked Chicken breasts with various spices
Roasted vegetables with various seasonings

(I can cook lots more stuff than that, obvi, but i'd rather not be cooking ALL THE TIME)

i like burgers and pizza every once in a while but like, i don't eat it all the time. I mostly cook for myself and eat on the go so it's easy to do healthy and bland and not really worry about it. 90% of the time food is just fuel

Yup, it is very milkshake like in thickness. I use non-fat soy milk but if you really wanted to bulk up, you could use whole milk. I have also gained 15 pounds since I starting drinking a 20oz version of this shake so buyer beware.

I was using the thera cane on my upper glutes / tailbone area with a LOT of pressure. I must have worked on the area around the tailbone too long / hard because I actually broke the skin. No blood, obviously, but holy hell, that spot burns.

Haha, I'm right there with you. Every other word I typed in that post, I thought, "Wow, this sounds pretty god damn dirty."

I would consider a barbell complex to be similar to his favorite hill sprints and program them similarly.

thoughts?

What I got away from that is that the number of calories is not the most important factor. It's how your body responds to those calories.

It's true.

Example:

Monday through Friday, I eat about 2700/day.

Sat and Sunday (36-48hr cheat), I eat about 13000-15000 calories.

Right now, this is enough for me to maintain weight.

But if I reduce my calories to 2500/day, M-F, I still maintain the same weight. Even though it's less calories, once my body gets accustomed to the new lower calories, it regulates my metabolism and I stay at the same weight.
