My Brother and I are always debating nutrition and training. We are same height, waist size and both about ~6% body fat. However, he is about 30lbs bigger. We both train regularly, he does eat a lot more and is chemically supplemented. We both eat clean but argue on certain things that I read and hi personal trainer (some big shot that flies in from New York) tell him.
Please help me clarify some of the discrepancies.
I love fat free cottage cheese and eat tons they say it thickens up your skin and is not that good for you.
He says don’t eat the skin on the sweet potato because it causes you to retain water. I always thought that is were all the vitamins are.
He drinks a ton of diet sodas…I think that is crazy. I know that makes you retain water and affects your insulin levels…Right?
He drinks a 100g carb, no protein post workout drink, I drink a Surge or surge like drink with P+C.
They say brown rice raises estrogen…that is new to me but I prefer Wild rice…lower GI.
He eats a good bit of peanut butter I saw the ingredients and contains partially hydrogenated oils, I think natural almond butter is the bomb.
The list goes on but will leave it at that for now. Give me you feedback…I can post more if you like but I will spare you guys for now.
