    fuck keto! (i'm just mad because i can never last more than a couple weeks)

    timed carb diets are a great alternative to keto and you can eat somewhat normal...

    I didn't start frequenting Iron Addicts until a few weeks ago, so I only now realized Wesley was the guy some people mentioned here in September after he died. Was it ever revealed what the cause of death was?

    Eat candy PWO with your shake, shit is full of maltodextrin and other goodies that wont have any real detriment due to your half-hour pwo window where insulin isn't affected or something like that. Broscience? I dunno, I just came from the gym and had a few sour patch kids with no guilt.

    Yes. Broscience. It's bullshit.

    But yea, take a pack once in a while, it's just 200-300 calories ffs. It won't change anything if you take some gummies once per week.

    Got my attention on this one. I'm very much out of the loop, but this guy touched a lot of people's lives apparently. Pretty incredible.

    His cause of death seems to be almost a taboo subject, for whatever reason. Only small hints like..

    It is now of how someone died, but the way they lived their lives. That speaks to Wes, who has contributed more than anyone knows, who will miss the fact that I was not close to him and the impact it had on me to come in person to see how a person he was.

    I am certainly curious though.

    It was mentioned on some board that he expired in a car accident (bb.com, not the best of sources). Guess I should start frequenting iron addicts, what with all the praise its getting here. Seems like a decent forum.

    What is one food that you stay away from purely because it's really bad for you? Could taste great, but just not worth it, if you're training under a strict regimen (even on "eat anything you want days").

    It sucks for me because it is just regular old candy like starburst, skittles, jelly beans, etc (fruit flavored candy primarily). Once I have just one or two I can't stop. So I just can't have any. All of this leftover halloween candy in the office...[​IMG]

    I eat what I want, and just do more cardio. Haven't seen any hard evidence to suggest an occasional candy bar will turn me into a fat ass or hamper my lifts. I lol @ people who subsist on chicken breasts, brown rice and celery for 6 meals a day and are in no better shape than I am. As long as you are keeping sight of the big picture, some indulgences are OK.

    i'd actually rather eat chicken breast and brown rice over a candy bar. It's just the convenience which causes lapses.

    I love cheat days, but feel awful (physically) if I don't get to eat mostly clean for even a few days. So while I enjoy a candy bar, I wouldn't want to eat one every day.

    Lots of young fellows doing squats with proper form at the gym today. Was quite a beautiful sight to see all the power racks taken by squatting bro's [​IMG]

    +1. With the right seasoning that sounds like a delicious diet.

    I actually just signed up for an account last night, after hearing some praise here from a couple of du's. There's definitely a shit ton of good stuff there, especially in the nutrition sections.
