1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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'm down some weight too, but I haven't been lifting too much. Need to do a pretty big motivation reboot. I think cycling will help since I'll have more time for it once finish my first year of med school in 5 hours...

    I also got put on ADD meds a few months ago. So that's contributed a bit to the weight loss/appetite suppression as well. I just force myself to eat and lift if I'm on it. I used to work out primarily at night, but that hasn't worked all that much lately. So it goes. Schedule's changing again in a couple of days anyway so I'll need to reboot it anyway!

    Thanks for all the travel tips earlier. GF and I are heading to costa rica. All tickets and lodging came to like 1100 for a week long trip. Pretty psyched!

    I'm most interested in the role the gut microbiome plays in post-prandial GI and systemic oxidative stress and inflammation as well as its possible influence on dietary choices


    Now back to bro-talk: 2.5 hour shoulders and arms fluff day today. God, I love fluff days. So easy.

    Three weeks done with PSMF. All lifts still at the same level but 4kg down in weight and clearly way more definition, mainly in the shoulder/arm and abs area. One week to go, a total of 2kg more to lose probably. But my real deadline is in August so super easy after the PSMF.

    After sticking super strictly and just adding 500g of carbs on my last two refeed Saturdays we went a bit more lenient today and went to the Street Food Festival in Basel. Had a mini Seitan burger with grilled vegetables and yogurt dip, some vegan Kottu Roti (Sri Lanka), a wheat tortilla filled with grilled aubergine and blended tomatoes, a small quesadilla (Mexico), half of a small vegetarian Tarte flambée (Alsace, France), irio with pilau and chapati (Kenya) and the smallest bag of churros they had while declining the chocolate sauce. Going to go a bit more conservative for dinner with some lamb filet and sweet potato, had egg whites for breakfast.

    7 days to go.

    Nice. Are there typically many vegan options available in Germany?

    In solution at neutral PH and 37C creatine degradation to creatinine was measured to be around 1% over 24 hours IIRC. Rate increases with increased temp and decreased ph

    I can't answer that question, but if you have not used it before and want to know the best way to consume it, creatine does not dissolve, so it will stink to the bottom of any beverage you put it in very quickly. In hindsight I wish I bought it in pill form.

    Nah I've used it for years. It does dissolve.

    Do the same thing to salt or sugar and see that they don't immediately dissolve.

    Need to use the handy dandy laboratory magnet stirrers.

    As he said. I live close to Basel and there are also some dedicated vegetarian and vegan restaurants. It's not really that "everything is schnitzel" lifestyle that many Germans show abroad.
