Out of Curiousity Question About Beans.


#1

Sweet Potatoes, Rice and Oats are almost the always go to carb sources during a prep. So, why not Beans? I would ask my coach but, I don't wanna bother him with every weird question google didn't answer.

This is not a way of going around him or trying to get permission from some where else. I will not eat them because he says not too which is enough for me on a objective level just, not so much on a for future reference manner.


#2

Beans are fine.

He likely is saying not to eat them because of bro folklore.


#3

kidney beans, four-bean mixes ect are great carb sources, particularly as you get deeper into a prep, because they give you great mileage on your daily battle to keep hunger at bay … Nornally around 250g yields (only) about 30-35g of carbs - so they’re going to a better job of helping you feel satisfied than rice or even sweet potato.

The only drawback though is the obvious (ie gas!)


#4

some folks, including me, struggle to digest them.

Other than that, they’re ok. Not particularly nutritious, but certainly not harmful.


#5

Reed I hope while you’re on a date with your transvestite lover you eat so many beans that you take a chance on a fart and lose. Even better when he’s fucking you in the butthole.


#6

Well. That escalated quickly.

I cannot speak towards the contest prep part of your question. Never been there. But I eat beans pretty regularly. You’ll find that gas becomes a non-issue if they are a normal part of your diet. It’s just like training, your body adapts.

If not, you might be like Yogi and others. And beans might not work well for you.


#8

Trannies, fecal matter, dicks and fondue. Makes me wonder what else is going on in his head. Then I remember not to stare into the abyss.


#9

What’s wrong with trannies??? Best of both worlds right?


#10

They are phytoestrogenic, and contain higher phytic acid levels. Not really a huge issue in moderation, too much phytic acid can interfere with certain nutrient absorption.
