** no sweet patator on days i dont lift
1 scoop whey w/ water
1.5 servings of cashews
1 scoop whey w/ water

my guesstions are:
1) should i eliminate carbs in the morning and just have a protien fat meal to keep the fat burning going? ( i think i read it in a post here??)
2) the 16 oz gatorade as my PWO shake has 24 grams of sugar not including whats in the whey, is that tooo much??? ( arnold calls it the white death,
3) is there anything i can add to my oatmeal in the morning to help with that taste? i sometimes gag because it is sooo plain?
4) where should i add my flax oil supp, as i hear you need fat to loose fat? or do i get enough good fats from the cashews and the rest of my diet??
5) is it OK to add t-3 at 25mcgs everyday or should i not mix it with my effedrine? do i really need it anyway u think???
if i think of anymore guesstions i will ask u guys tomorow, class is about to start.
i want to thank you bros for taking the time to help a new memeber whos looking to make this a great new lifestyle... i LOVE walking around with protien shakes in my hands,lolol...

i agree with mike he pretty much nailed it.. the thing about T3 that it is a serious drug.. For one it can lead to a condition where you'll have to continue to take it for the rest of you life. Also since T3 is very catabolic i would get some other special juice to fight the catabolism cause you can end up like swole says 13 year old basketball player. Also I dont think its a necessity unless your getting ready for a show, etc.. However if your really stomped look into Clen its a much safer alternative to T3... just my two cents..

T3 is best utilized @ 25 mcs's a day w/ a relatively CLEAN bulking program w/some sh*t food thrown in at times.
For dieting, nope.............you lose lean mass even w/lots of gear. Don't believe me?

thank you swole & elliot, t-3 doesnt sound to productive at all if i wanna keep whatever lean mass I have. im defintly gonna take your word for it as i been reading this board for a few months now trying to figure out a plan of attack before i posted. i look up to members such as yourselves.
lean me out, that was outstanding help my friend. U laid everything out so perfectly for me. Here are some answers and feedback and some guesstions.
The cardio I do in the morning, end at 2 and a quarter miles. I walk 3mph. im gonna start to up it to 3.5 and see how far I get with that. If I go to 4mph I would be moderately jogging.
My PWO shake has 46 grams protein, 34 grams of carbs, 26-28 grams of sugar.. I use lemon lime flavor Gatorade cause I read that lemon actually tightens the skin. Im not sure if the Gatorade has real lemon, but im looking for every edge I can get, lol..Do you think I should add more carbs??? Maybe get some dextrose and start using that? Also do I need that malodextrine I hear about a lot with dextrose??
Im gonna add the flax with meal 4 like u said for sure.Meal 5, im gonna drop the cashews and eat a can of albacore tuna with salsa, does that sound like a better choice? Also should I still put the flax in meal 4, even though im getting the efa’s in meal 5 (albacore tuna)???
Im gonna add the aspirin like u advise… thanks again for laying everything out so perfect for me. I appreciate you taking the time out.
u know what the worse mistake I ever made was. When I started this diet, I never keeped any journals or loggs about what I ate. I mixed things up for 3-4 months, changes my diet every month, and the month where fat was just shedding off, I forgot what the hell I ate to help me out. I forget if it was when I doing the fat/protein meals after cardio or the oatmeal. Im not gonna make that mistake again. I carry my journal now like it’s the bible, lol..
Swole, im gonna hit u up when I get to the hard to loose stuff because I like what I read about you and the feedback you give. U will be hearing from me.

No problem bro...
Tuna does have the EFAs in it... but you still need more fat. It only has 1 gram per serving. So with your average 2.5 serving can you are only getting 2.5g of fat and 37 grams of protein. I would add some mayo for fat or olive oil is good too.
Don't worry about what speed you are on with the treadmill... worry about the Heart Rate. Get your heart rate in your target zone without running. If you have to put an it at an incline and moderate speed... just don't run/jog. But like I said atleast for me... to be in my target heart rate I have to be at 4.0 or higher w/ incline and I usually end up at about 3 miles. Just do what is the right ammount for your body. Target Heart rate is 220-age * .7
As for the malodextrine, I don't really know much about it but I have been using Dextrose only w/ Isolate for months on end and I am getting great results. I am actually getting leaner but bigger in the right places at the same time. So I am guessing dextrose alone is fine. And remember what I said... PWO shake needs to be 2:1 carbs to protein. So if you are having 21 grams of carbs (which isn't enough) you need to have only 10.5g of protein. If I were you I would stick to 25g of protein and 51g carbs PWO (1/3 cut dextrose).
By the way.... keeping a daily log is the best thing you can possibly do. Lay it all out the night before and eat according to it. Works best for me. When I get home from work later I can post the diet outline chart I use... got it from someone here on the board and it is awesome.
