His post, while slightly neurotic, probably stems from the fact that milk in general is often touted as highly insulinogenic, and therefore is not as ridiculous as you seem to think. Also, what dedicated physique athlete (or someone engaged in similar pursuits) do you know that is not slightly obsessive?[/quote]
the difference is, successful physique atheletes obsess over things that actually MATTER. People who constantly spin their wheels for years getting absolutly nowhere, on the other hand, obsess over the shit that doesn’t matter, like if the 3g of carbs in their reduced-carb milk is going to make them fat.
If those observing don’t mind, why don’t you expand on your particular beliefs regarding diet philosophies. Particularly, a diet for someone looking increase lean body mass and also a diet for someone who seeks a reduction in body fat.
I look forward to your response.[/quote]
mass gain diet: 17-18 calories per lb (as a starting point) 1-1.25g of protein per lb, 20-35% of calories from fat (including 2-3g combined EPA+DHA), the rest of your calories fill in with carbs, making sure to eat plenty of fruits and veggies for health.
for fat loss: 11-12 calories per lb (as a starting point) 1.5-2g of protein per lb, 20-35% of calories from fat(including 2-3g combined EPA+DHA), the rest of your calories fill in with carbs, making sure to eat plenty of fruits and veggies for health.
no food is off limits (dairy, grains, refined starches, fatty cuts of meat) as long as they fit into your calories/macros.
there. Simple, to the point, gets the job done.
