I have when that happens cause then I forget what it is
Good thing it's easy to remember a tub of powder as big as your torso
yea, don't put it near the laundry detergent
Was gonna look up the macros for the six star thing but there's like 100 different versions of it of course
yea that might help, I'll use a generic one and then buy the vegi
Meal prep is fun they said.
When you have to ice your tendons but you forgot to make ice. Frozen broccoli, bodybuilders best friend
Something something, of it looks stupid but works something something
Your prepped meals look like you shoved two containers of pretzels into a model fridge at a home depot
So I bought a giant bag of flaxseed from Costco to put in my smoothies. It wasn’t until I got home that I found out that flaxseeds have phytoestrogens, but they are lignans and not isoflavones.
I have removed most nonanimal fat sources
I'll eat mixed nuts but flax is not ideal
But is flax ok to consume?
Lots of Omega-3, which helps with Testosterone production, among other things.
I believe the whole phytoestrogens thing is extremely overblown. Like Praetorian said, they’re actually a great source of omega 3s.
But if you *really* care about avoiding phytoestrogens that much, chia seeds are almost identical in nutritional profile.
Check out this video if you want to see what soy does to men. Soyattle is full of these manginas.
Chia seeds are the ideal food
http://www.fertstert.org/article/S0015-0282(09)00966-2/fulltext Interesting read.
"The results of this meta-analysis indicate that neither soy protein nor isoflavones affect reproductive hormone concentrations in men regardless of age or cancer status. These results suggest that consumption of soy foods or isoflavone supplements would not result in the adverse effects associated with lower T levels (31, 32, 33)."
Vegan master race @Ekdromoi
All I want to say is I’ve been vegan for 2 years and eat soy products semi regularly. No negative health effects, no problems with test levels, and I have been lifting 5 days per week over that same period - you can ask anyone from the Northeast who all know me IRL for reference.
It’s likely the Try Guys eat a standard omnivorous American diet and are betas by nature - not as a result of phytoestrogens.
BUT ITS OK IF YOU DISAGREE AND ARENT VEGAN THATS FINE YOU DONT HAVE TO EAT SOY IF YOU DONT WANT TO
They have no more arguments, they need to go vegan
I’ve seen too many friendships die this way.
Agreed, but if they have can't formulate an argument against it or any argument they have doesn't hold water logically or in terms of health, then they should go vegan. It's definitely not a pressing issue right now, but when we have our future secured, it'll be a talking point then.
I go full cod liver oil for fats
Omega 3 I mean
My system is very sensitive
Would rather avoid all possible sources of estrogen
Yeah, the soy argument for whatever reason can get pretty heated.
It is not de wae
We had a new IE member flip out in here a while back -- he told someone who was arguing that soy wasn't that bad that he was a Jewish shill and should get killed by antifa.
Needless to say, we let him go.
what do you guys think of the ECA stack?
Are primatene tablets a good way to get ephedrine for pre-workout?
It works but the A is now considered unnecessary
