Most inexpensive T check I've found.

2018-02-17 20:10:44 UTC  

Have you tried it? @Reinhard Wolff

2018-02-18 06:48:15 UTC  

Yeah, I used this service.

2018-02-18 06:48:40 UTC  

You order online, and then you bring in the paperwork they sent you to a LabCorp.

2018-02-18 06:48:52 UTC  

The whole process was very simple.

2018-02-18 06:49:16 UTC  

Don’t try to drive afterwards though

2018-02-18 06:49:36 UTC  

I felt fine for a few minutes and then blacked out

2018-02-18 07:03:06 UTC  

Long but well worth the watch

2018-02-18 07:03:29 UTC  

*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

2018-02-18 08:17:38 UTC  

There were some uh

2018-02-18 08:17:42 UTC  

Interesting people there

2018-02-22 08:17:18 UTC  

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?

2018-02-22 16:41:45 UTC  

Peanut butter is ridiculously calorie and protein dense

2018-02-22 16:41:54 UTC  

I eat some out of the jar at my desk at work

2018-02-22 17:28:10 UTC  

High carb diets literally run your body on sugar. Healthy fats should be your primary fuel.

2018-02-22 17:31:35 UTC  

God damn that's a lot of calories

2018-02-22 17:31:40 UTC  

Power bulk?

2018-02-22 17:41:20 UTC  

@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.

2018-02-22 17:42:24 UTC  

@Suomi Stronk you're still a slave to sugar tho

2018-02-22 17:43:11 UTC  

Your body won't burn its own fat when you run out of sugar, like it's supposed to

2018-02-22 17:43:43 UTC  

Fuel with fat, you'll always have fuel on hand, even when food is unavailable

2018-02-22 20:13:24 UTC  

@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

2018-02-22 22:08:31 UTC  

I'd forego internet calculator and read some articles about how the body processes macronutrients

2018-02-22 23:12:19 UTC  

If you are trying to lose fat, 3709 calories is probably a no-go

2018-02-22 23:12:39 UTC  

There are a lot of good carbs too but shit that's a lot

2018-02-22 23:18:55 UTC  

Nobody wants to hear it but fasting is the most efficient, healthiest way to lose fat

2018-02-22 23:19:36 UTC  
2018-02-24 20:43:47 UTC  

It all depends on what your goals are. If you're concerned with athletic performance, you need glycogen.

2018-02-24 20:44:01 UTC  

Otherwise, low-carb is probably best, particularly if you're trying to lose weight.

2018-02-25 04:45:58 UTC  

I do know that you need carbohydrates to burn fat in a healthy way

2018-02-25 15:44:43 UTC  

Do you?

2018-02-25 17:14:20 UTC  

Endurance athletes perform significantly better on keto or paleo diets

2018-02-25 21:23:22 UTC  

Interesting. Source?

2018-02-26 18:23:02 UTC  

By "perform better" I mean you can exercise for much longer without refueling, so you go from sucking down sugar gel every hour to burning your own stored fat, which frees you up to focus on your sport.

2018-02-27 04:13:25 UTC  

I am trying to gain weight and I find it extremely difficult to hit 3000 calories a day. I'm eating a lot of red meat and I feel full constantly. I do seem to have a lot more energy though so that's good.

2018-02-27 17:27:52 UTC  

@Der Seeteufel - SD My brother has been eating up to 5000 calories a day; I think he's gained at least 30 lbs so far. His method involves not actually enjoying food so much as forcing down the most calorie dense items possible, which are fats. Heavy cream or half&half, coconut oil, butter, avocados. If you can find a way to make whole sticks of butter palatable, you're on your way. (He's on the national server as @Sean- CA; if you DM him for some advice I'm sure he'd love to help.)

@Der Seeteufel - SD When I started I weighed 135 lbs and couldn't eat worth a damn, ended up buying Optimum Nutrition mass gainer powder in order to just drink my calories. I imagine everyone here is gonna give you grief about "noooo get it from whole foods" which granted, is preferable, but if you have too much trouble getting that many calories from normal food alone, the shakes are the way to go.
