What's the pro/cons of that vs a traditional pre workout powder like no explode or c4? I'm trying to start working out before work but it's hard for me to get going
ECA is primarily used for fat loss
It's not really a pre workout but it will definitely give you energy
Ya I knew it gave you energy. I thought the fat loss just came from working out with the energy it gave you. I am definitely not wanting to lose any weight so I better stay away. I guess I'll try a good pre workout. I've used a couple different ones in the past being the two I previously listed.
Fat loss occurs on ECA by increasing your resting heart rate. Studies show it helps decrease bodyfat while retaining significant amounts of muscle mass
I'd just go for a preworkout... my favourite is nitraflex from GAT or Bang
Ok thanks man I'll check them out.
I'm never going vegan ahaha stay mad soyboys check 'em ☝🏻☝🏻️☝🏻️ (I'm only being slightly ironic)
cant get up without it
It's like crack
ECA is pretty over rated, but I might just have a degenerately high tolerance to stims.
The first few weeks of taking it it will definitely supress your appetite though so that's a bonus if you're cutting.
Make sure you are still getting enough protein though.
@Zyzz ya I've used noxplode before as well. It seemed to do great. It's a different ball game going in the gym before work though lol. I'm not a morning person.
@JesseJames first thing i do when i wake up is take it. in literally a minute or two i start to feel it wake me up. i am not really a morning person either but the powder helps gets me going better than any cup of coffee i have ever had
Good to know. Where is the best place to buy it? I think I had gotten it off amazon before. You don't know any big box stores that may carry it do ya?
i am sure your local GNC or vitamin shop would
i buy mine off amazon
I'll try gnc.
I don't know if I've ever felt as good as I have this past week and the only thing I've done differently is get my 5 servings of cruciferous greens in a blender every day for the last two weeks
Cannot recommend this highly enough atm
So I hear
You wanna know
Bout some supplements
Whelp ya boy works at GNC
While I'm no expert, you might want to be careful drinking cruciferous shakes.
Uncooked cruciferous vegetables can damage your health.
Particularly your thyroid.
God damn guys is there anything you can eat?
absolutely nothing wrong with a gallon of milk a day
(I'm being satirical of course. I just type "is x bad for you" into google).
@Reinhard Wolff very interesting read, thank you! Maybe I'll switch to a different vegetable every couple days
Irish potato and turkey stew Uber Alles.
The diet plan the Golden One gave me suggested a 6 egg omelette post workout
Not eating eggs might be heresy, in all actuality
@Mark Vandal we get three cartons of eggs per week from the guy up the road. I have more eggs than I know what to do with
I sometimes throw them at friends
I want my own chickens one day. As many eggs as I want
He’s got dozens of chickens
I have 9 chickens and in warm weather we have more eggs than we can possibly use
Yeah they’re so prolific lol
Seems like it's time for chicken soup.
I eat a ham and cheese sandwich with sour cream and onion (lays) chips every day for lunch. Maybe i will switch to mixed nuts...thoughts?
Are you 12?
Actually sounds pretty good to me
@Pat-MA i say mix it up. sour cream and onion are great but throw in some salt & vinegear or wavy lays. Not on the same day obviously
Also what type of cheese?
Have your mom pack fruit gushers as well for vitamin C gains
Stop 👏 eating 👏 processed 👏 food
Are Doritos processed food?
Doritos are a food group bro
Well what do you experts eat for lunch
Eggs and steak
All organic though
I eat a lot of tuna for lunch. Whole grain bread and fruit with it. I also like KambuCha
Sourdough bread. Good for the gut.
Throw any kind of meat in a pan with any veggies + fat + spices
Endless varieties of flavor
Non GMO at least
Watch the corn
Corn is overrated anyway
Corn wheat and soy
Asparagus, brussel sprouts, onions, garlic, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, broccoli, eggplant, zucchini, etc etc etc
Add whey to that bad list, it's worse than soy as far as estrogen goes
300g fish (this week is catfish) 100g sweet potato 50g beets or cabbage
Just eat those same things but don't measure it. Just make meals and eat until you're satisfied. That's what I've done and it seems to work.
Kale with vinegar and olive oil, 4oz meat
Whey contains hardly any estrogen at all...
People also forget that estrogen isn't all bad
They'll swear off anything with it or that increases it but you need it for strength and a healthy heart as well
Will eating McDonald's get me GAINS???
You will... gain... @Rogue#0890
If I don't go to the gym tonight will all the protein I've eaten today go to waste?
I don't think that's how it works
Can anyone recommend a website/app to calculate how much daily caloric intake one needs to gain weight?
Bro I don't know how this shit works I know what to put in and why but ibdont know the science
I'd like to find some sort of appetite stimulant so I can pack on some weight. No I'm not going to smoke weed all day.. @Mark Vandal do you by chance run the liftwaffe Twitter page?
No. But I got their tank gonna rick it tonight
Nice. Love that logo
itll help your appetite
Opinions.. Hypertrophy lifting vs full body routine? For strength and size.
Just gotta force it down man
@Sonic are you lifting? after more than a year of consistent lifting my appetite has increased dramatically
It sucks nut you gotta
I've done massive weight loss and gain abd gaining is by far harder
Yes. Around 9 months or so now, and appetite has increased dramatically but I have a high metabolism. I eat about every 2-3 hours all day, protein shakes, full meals, etc. Have gained about 10-12 lbs but would like more.
Lift 3 days a week, full body routine.
@Zyzz can you provide name or brand? I'm not interested in illegal shit but a legal form?
Guess I'll just keep packing my gut full. Thanks guys 👌🏻
all men should have their T levels checked with all the pesticides/hormones and other nonsense out their impacting our health (and T levels)
I'll look into this thank you
That video was very informative! Learned some new stuff @missliterallywho
Always knew salt wasn't necessarily bad for you but didn't know why
@BigBadSaxon - ID You're welcome! That yt channel is really good, has some great videos on fasting as well.
I put enough hot sauce on my food that I probably eat enough salt for all of us
"Hi. I'm Will Kenney. Like many Americans, I suffer from chronic joint pain. Over the years, I've tried everything to manage it, but nothing seemed to work. That is until my friends at Identity Evropa recommended [X]. Since starting [X], I've seen a dramatic improvement in my chronic joint pain. Activities are fun again, and I can work all day without arthritic flare-ups. Thanks, Identity Evropa!"
Please solve for X. I'm dyin' over here.
what does MSM stand for?
ah no i havent tried that.
Will have a look thanks very much
Why are #5 and #6 the same?
Because that’s the most important part.
@Deleted User having lucious hair should be a recruitment requirement.
@DCViking#3202 I’m gonna order some tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion
My wife makes these little powerballs as a cheaper alternative to protein bars. She makes a big bowl and then rolls them up into little spheres about the size of a donut hole. I think I’m getting this right:
- Steel cut oats
- Peanut butter
- Protein powder (we use combat powder)
- Wee bit of honey
- Wee bit of cocoa powder
She freezes them for about 20 mins then put them in the refrigerator
We made something similar to this a few years back. They taste awesome and are a healthy snack.
Those look tasty
I've been using pea protein lately. It's supposed to be better than whey. Definitely tastes awful, though.
Pea protein + creatine.
I've heard pea and hemp. It tastes like actual dirt and is kind of chalky, though yeah
I've used pea protein
It's super grainy
R8 my dinner
Gr8 b8 m8 I r8 8/8
Someone must have a dirty mouth 😏
I'll have to try making those protein balls
How bad is it to not eat all day and then eat one huge meal?
There have been studies actually showing benefits to that kind of diet.
Im not sure how beneficial it is if youre trying to gain weight though.
I eat my largest meal in the morning because I need the energy for my job
Then I eat a light meal for dinner
That's OMAD nigga
I'm not trying to gain weight right now
I'm also not doing this as a diet. More because I'm sick right now and haven't been in the mood to eat.
I do this by accident as well
Not the best strategy to gain I think
@Jacob it's called intermittent fasting and it will improve your health and increase your lifespan.
If you are a rat: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3680567/
Grilled cod, whole grain couscous, sautéed tomatoes and squash
What do you all think of intermittent fasting and extended fasting?
I was thinking about doing a 6 or 8 hour eating window on days I lift, and then fasting all day on my rest day
10/10 would recommend
@here rec for a high quality BCAA supplement?
Green apple flave
Chicken leg quarter, about 3.35 oz of pork, handful of watercress, white mushrooms and a ridiculous helping of brown whole grain rice + lentils.
How did you prepare the chicken? It looks good
It was pre-seasoned. Put it on a tray with some foil, salt + pepper and olive oil, covered it and let it bake for ~30 minutes.
Nice and juicy.
Damn I have to look into buying chicken quarters. Looks real good
Not impressed by the amount of meat on the one that I ate today tbh
was tasty tho
I thought that was a platypus with eyebrows in the top of the pic but it's a dog
Would you guys say that organic food is the way to go?
I buy organic when I can afford it
Ideally you should eat all organic/local
Minimize toxins in the body and be your healthiest self!
There have been multi generational studies of testosterone levels on men. Basically what they found was our fathers have about half the T levels as our grandfathers and we have about half the T levels of our fathers. People think this has to do with the food we eat and our environment amongst other things. Now a days non organic food is covered in pesticides and the meat is filled with hormones/steroids and other non natural components. So in summary, yes try to eat organic whenever you can. What is considered organic now was just regular food when our parents and grandparents were growing up
People will say “but our food is so cheap!” And yes that is correct. Looking back over time as a % of a typical household budget, food expenditures is at a very low historical level but that comes with a cost! We essentially eat this junky food that messes with our hormones and other aspects of our body and it makes us sick in one way or another.
I believe this to an extent, haven't read any studies.
for whatever reason that link is not working for me
idk if its working for anyone else but i will see what i can dig up later today
some good general info ^
Where does it say we have 25% the test of our grandfathers?
If that were true my grandfather would have been a silverback gorilla
It's probably general assumption for most normie males
Fitmales are probably doing fine buy maybe slightly hampered by xenoestrogens
Maybe in general, the average male has less test because of obesity, shitty lifestyle and diet, etc. I really, really doubt that we (men) on average have a quarter the test of our grandfathers.
Of course there are exemptions
People are fatter and doing more sedentary work, eating way more carbohydrates and less saturated fats and protein
People who don't workout and eat right might have a portion of their grandfather's test but I think most of us in here are doing okay.
If you're working out, eating right, getting adequate sleep, flirting with women and competing with other males in some form you're probably fine
Yeah it was meant to apply men in general. I will keep looking for the study that says quarter of T levels
Most inexpensive T check I've found.
Yeah, I used this service.
You order online, and then you bring in the paperwork they sent you to a LabCorp.
The whole process was very simple.
Don’t try to drive afterwards though
I felt fine for a few minutes and then blacked out
*cue passionate argument*
I went to the downtown Birmingham labcorp once for a blood test to see if I was the best match for a marrow donation
There were some uh
Interesting people there
I need some advice for my diet plan. I used an online meal plan calculator to find my goals and this is what I got
Calorie Goal: 3709
Protein Intake Goal: 324
Fat Intake Goal: 57
Carbohydrate Intake Goal: 475
Any advice on reaching this? What are your favorite protein dense foods?
Peanut butter is ridiculously calorie and protein dense
I eat some out of the jar at my desk at work
High carb diets literally run your body on sugar. Healthy fats should be your primary fuel.
God damn that's a lot of calories
@missliterallywho I disagree. If you're eating most of your carbs post/pre workouts and your carbs being "Good", I've had a lot better approach with the high carb approach with my training.
Your body won't burn its own fat when you run out of sugar, like it's supposed to
Fuel with fat, you'll always have fuel on hand, even when food is unavailable
@BigBadSaxon - ID I put my stats into a meal planner and told it I was trying to lose fat and put on muscle and choose the x2 protein option, figured that would lead to faster muscle growth
I'd forego internet calculator and read some articles about how the body processes macronutrients
If you are trying to lose fat, 3709 calories is probably a no-go
There are a lot of good carbs too but shit that's a lot
Nobody wants to hear it but fasting is the most efficient, healthiest way to lose fat
As explained by Dr. Gook https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIuj-oMN-Fk
It all depends on what your goals are. If you're concerned with athletic performance, you need glycogen.
Otherwise, low-carb is probably best, particularly if you're trying to lose weight.
I do know that you need carbohydrates to burn fat in a healthy way
