    Surprised to see that I weighed 2 lbs heavier today than when I started Carb Back-Loading two weeks ago. I feel much flatter (waking up with abs) then ever and I'm eating considerably cleaner. :slayer: Stoked on it though.

    Nice one, seem to be a few decently priced sets from a quick look. I have a couple of months so there's no particular rush.

    Im 5'10" 155 and 18 years old. Started lifting 5/6 times a week an am looking to get up to 165ish. I know that my age and access to a gym are in my favor, but here's the catch: I've been a vegetarian my whole life. Short of eating meat, has anyone here had success getting enough protein? I'm pounding whey supplements and protein bars but I'm still coming in around 100-110 grams a day, quite a bit short of the 1g per lb of weight recommendation.

    Become not a vegetarian? Guess you could just eat loads of whey and eggs.

    take casein if you're using it as a dietary supplement. use whey only for post work out.


    also 4 scoops of casein is 100g of protein. that's like two shakes. take a shake every meal. that's 150g protein. eat some cottage cheese, eggs, greek yogurt for breakfast and lentils for lunch and dinner and you can push 180, 200 easy

    1. Nuts are a godsend. They are rather fattening so watch your macros on everything else
    2. Yogurt - esp greek yogurt
    3. If you're lacto-ovo vegetarian, eggs

    That should get you started.

    I saw a video that said cooking eggs damages the protein and it enters the bloodstream causing pro-inflammatory effects. True?

    Anyone else have set goals and once they reach them they are fine with staying there? Like I've always said I just want to be a man who can at any moment do a double bodyweight squat and deadlift; so once I meet that I will taper off the weightlifting and just go into maintenance mode. I feel crazy because no one else thinks this.

    Some of his videos I know are true from research, some make a lot of sense and have bits I know are right and then there are some that are odd but still interesting.
