1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    body is hungry every 3 hrs. I tried 3-4 meals and did not as as good of as an outcome plus you want a more constant supply of protein in the blood stream. the less you eat the more you have to take in of protein per meal. Your body will only consumer so much protein into the blood stream so when you eat more then 30grams of protein per serving it just shits it out. In a more drawn out diet you have better chance for protein uptake into the blood stream and better chance of muscle growth.
    Both Alan Aragon and Lyle McDonald have written extensively about this topic. Look at this link below for an article by Aragon, for example. http://www.wannabebig.com/diet-and-n...a-single-meal/ As he points out, studies do not support the 20-30g per serving "theory." If it is easier for you to manage your macros, by all means do it. But I don't believe it is necessary. By the way, there seems to be research now that says that doing fewer meals is actually better for blood glucose control. See the link below on Martin Berkhan's website. The claim by the brosephs that you need to eat every 2-3 hours to maintain your blood sugar levels is just bunk, it would appear. http://www.leangains.com/2011/01/bet...ower-meal.html

    Thats fine, just don't mention the 30g/sitting thing, which has been debunked.

    Generally, do what your body tells you to do

    My doctors recommended I stop taking creatine for a month to see if it effects my aggression. Is there any logic to this? I don't really know much about creatine other then it increases water retention, don't really believe it has anything to do with aggression. I'm kind of unwilling to stop using it because of how quickly I started putting on weight and increasing my lifts when I started it. I don't exactly think creatine is causing roid rage or anything.

    I don't think creatine in itself has any psychiatric effects. I don't remember my biochem all that well, but the only proven function is supply skeletal muscles with ATP through the transfer of the terminal phosphate group. Much of the other side effects have largely been debated, and psychiatric one has not been mentioned.

    Although may be you are working out more, increase thyroid hormone production, testosterone production could probably cause this?

    While google searches are sometimes misleading, there seem to be a fair bit of anecdotal evidence of creatine sometimes leading to aggression, mood swings and general crankiness. Maybe your doctor's suggestion is not a bad one - it's an easy experiment to run and you can always get back on if you get a null result.

    Ditch it for kicks, but the internet returns aggression and mood swings for salt and sugar, too.

    cognitive therapy + get your anger out in the gym. "feeling good" by david burns is a good book on the topic. teaches you to reason your way through things, eventually it becomes habit.

    i feel like its a good read for non depressed ppl as well as it helps you deal with other people's aggession, internal anxiety, and other things that affect your mental stability

    Day off today. My diet consisted of beef spare ribs, home made pan fried turkey, mashed potatoes, and corn with butter. Felt good.
