    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think that has a lot to do with glycemic index of food. Processed stuff will make your blood sugar levels rise much more than whole foods, I'm sure you know this. I'm no scientists but insulin is a crazy strong growth hormone and as a result it's a great thing to have going on post workout.

    It's weird. When I started to try and diet right (think like 6-7 months ago) my off days where I had 0 carbs would destroy me, especially on the Saturday + Sunday. Now my body is use to it and I can definitely tell that my insulin sensitivity is much better but then I spike that shit post workout and feel great. I've been able to bulk 40lbs while eating 0 carbs 3 days out of the week, so that probably says something.

    Ask him if he's aware. If he is, the correct response should be "stay safe OP"

    Damn you really ate all that in one sitting???

    *EDIT* Thinking about it it is doable. For some reason I translated 400g into 4lbs. I do about 600-700g of chicken in one sitting, and then follow that up with about 300-400g of carbs and another 70-80g of whey

    Looks good though

    Yeah, takes some time (approx. 1 movie) to horse that sh*t down but then again IF messes up your sense of portion size.

    242lbs paused bench felt relatively easy today; making progress : )

    If crashing your metabolism is a thing then why isn't have a fast/slow metabolism?

    I read about crashing your metabolism by eating way too little. Every time someone claims they have a slow metabolism though, people call bs. Why?

    You mean that it slows down when you eat way too little? Like when non-fat ppl do PSMF for too long?
    I think ppl call BS because:

    A) Many fat ppl with regular metabolisms claim to have a slow one just as an excuse (The girl who cried wolf....) ,

    B) Even ppl with slow metabolisms can drop weight if they eat below maintenance.


    Not sure if the latter is actually the case btw but I think thats how many ppl see it.

    p much... "Slow" implies a permanent metabolic state and is usually accompanied by an excuse. "Crashed" is more of a diagnosis and indicates a concrete course of action to be taken from that point.

    welp I accidentally hit 200lbs I guess. Weighed 195lbs saturday and decided to up my protein meals by 1oz, figured it wouldn't do anything because I switched from walking for 45 mins to running hills. Didn't weigh myself all week and weighed myself tonight and was 200lbs.
