    Don't panic and worry so much about not having whey on hand. If it was for post workout you could have just subbed with 10gBCAA and the maybe a chicken breas or egg whites and some oats, basically the same macro's as your PWO shake.

    That was a tiny weight gain for, what to me, is a big plate of food.

    You'll be less than 200lbs in a few days time. Happy?

    funny stem i woke up this am and weighed 200 on the nose which is .4lbs lighter than i was on saturday.. my macros were off for yesterday though..

    actual total daily macros for yesterday:1564/215/80/41..the macros i posted last nite i did before actually eating meal 6.. had no pro powder and ran out of cottage cheese so i didnt eat my nat PB since they go together i just skipped meal 6.. didnt have it in me to do cardio this am either cuz i only had 5 hrs sleep.. i did however do it yesterday which is usually an off day so i think ill be ok..

    today:chest/bis

    ill have to remember that about the bcaas.. i didnt even think about them.. i guess i have them programmed in my mind for pre-fasted cardio only..

    oh 1 other question.. the protein powder i have now for today only has 27g carb in 3 servings (which is how many in get pwo) should i drink it and just leave off the oats to compensate for carbs today???

    Yeah, just hit your macro's dude, it's not gonna matter for one day having the 'wrong' type of carbs after training. May I suggest you switch your protein from concentrate to isolate!? More protein, less carbs and less fat per serving and quicker into your system too.

    hmm isolate huh?? LOL i guess i dont pay attention to type as much as i just look at pro/carb/fat.. my wife usually gets it but i think they quit carrying the kind i usually use..i know the kind with the 9c has bcaas in it .. prob some other stuff too.. im not a big reader.. maybe i should change that about me will look into that isolate protein..

    That's it, jot it down as you complete each set, makes certain you won't forget by doing it later on. Chest and bi's for me today too, first time in 12 weeks I had no progression at all.
    When you doing more pics?

    well i had another 1300 start today.. was nice cuz i got to sleep til 1030.. got up did 45 min fasted cardio .. at 1800 i have legs.. also i broke thru under 200 lb mark today!!! weighed 199.4 when i awoke pretty good milestone for me .. havent been under 200lbs in 2 yrs..

    have a question SteM.. now i usually lift at 1200 so i have 3 carb meals in meals 1,2,and3.. today i dont lift until 1800 so should i still eat all my carbs in first 3 meals or switch so the carb meals fall before my lift and pwo??

    Yep, fit 'em round your workout. Personally I would have them in meal 1 and then whatever meals are pre and post.

    Congrats on being sub 200. Getting an idea of what you may look like at 180 yet?

    starting to still have good bit of fat im ready to get gone however i do look alot thinner in clothing havent lost much strength either.. i think writing down my weights and reps will also help me keep an eye on that sort of thing.. esp changing my wkout im in unfamiliar territory with weights and reps.. chest is sore today though which is new.. i dont usually get sore

    HIIT is different in many ways to fasted cardio. I for one like to fuel my HIIT cardio so I can work that bit harder during the session. Ultimately your cals and macro's will be the same during the day so I would suggest you fuel yours too.

    Good weight loss this weight. Sometimes cheats do help, just not regular ones. Also you didn't hit your macro's the day before and your carbs were quite low. That said, I'm pleased you don't have the patience to weigh yourself once per week. This way you should learn why you may be lighter one day than the next.

    Do you ever eat fruit?

    no fruit.. what i posted in post 339 is what ive been eating 7 days/week since sept 28 literally.. with the exception of that one cheat meal... 100% without deviation.. as in NO DEVIATION AT ALL... i must say today i went ahead and didnt eat carbs after meal one which was 1/4 cup oats so ill eat my last carb for the day with meal 4 today except for the 10 or so g carbs in my cott cheese..

    You're training hard and eating under maintenance so your body will be loving every nutrient you give it. As the range of veggies/fruit is fairly limited on a cutting diet I always supplement with a multi vit/mineral to ensure I'm not missing out on too much. I don't believe in spending loads of money on a multi vit just something that'll give about 100% of your RDA. I take mine at breakfast.

    Other than that I like caffeine pre-workout in the form of tablets not actual coffee and I may add some green tea tabs to the caffeine if I remember to buy them. I also like kre alkalyn creatine because I can feel the benefit ut I know it isn't everybodies favourite supp.

    BTW I have no real issue with some fruit. I have half a red grapefruit with breakfast and often have a kiwi fruit with one of my other carb meals, usually PPWO. Just account for them in my macro's.

    im not say you should do an eca stack by the way especially if your doing so good with out any of that crap. im just saying caffeine will keep you kicking during a workout

    Yep, 200mg tabs. Esp pre fasted cardio, helps 'mobilise' fat cells. Before a lifting workout, for improved intensity, I sometimes wash a tab down with a cup of coffee!

    Funny.. Stem .. Wash down caffeine with coffee.: well i made a major boo boo last nite.. I was at work til 00:00 and about 22:30 i was thirsty so i went over to the soda machine and got a mello yello zero to drink.. Went on about my business and sipped on it for the next hr and a half... Well about 00:15 i was on my way home and i took a sip and all of a sudden it hit me.. "this tastes funny" i turnd on the lite in my car and to my dismay reLized it wasnt a mello yello zero at all! It was a regular mello yello.. I frantically turnd the bottle around(20oz) and lookd at the sugar amt for the whole bottle.. 78g!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! LOL.. And i had already drank almost half of it.. Thats 40g of high fructose corn syrup i accidentally ingested.. And nothing i can do about it tats the last time i get a "diet soda" from tat machine

    Have Ppt with endocrinologist today at 12:20 hope it goes well

    In all honesty it doesn't make that much difference unless you are using it constantly over a period of time. But it is inexpensive though more effective when 'stacked' with other compounds, particularly compounds that act like adrenalin. This is why it works so well with ephedrine and, indeed, clenbuterol .

    Green tea is another inexpensive option that I like to stack it with though there are others. There are numerous studies on the subject.

    As a side note the free fatty acids that it releases nto the bloodstream will be burned with the right type of exercise but if all the FFA's are not used they will simply return to the fat cells. So you can't sit on your bum drinking coffee after coffee expecting a thermogenic effect.



    405 - noted re: the yellow carbonated drink that I've never heard of! It's a reminder that when dieting always check the label.

    Thanks SteM. what do you consider this period of time to be? lets say one does fasted cardio 5-6 times a week for 3 months would this be a sufficient period of time? or are we talking about longer.....appreciate it....

    hope you are okay with some questions 405~

    I would think that's a reasonable amount of time yep. Is that what you used? Anything with it?

    Personally I use it before lifting and before any fasted cardio if I ever get the chance to do it.

    200mg is a good start, see how you go with it. If you don't normally have a high caffeine intake then it should be sufficient. Pre fasted cardio I break a tab into 4 and I down it within 5 mins of the start. Pre lifting I have it whole about 20 mins before I start.
