I’ll be following your posts bro. You are an entertaining dude! I’d recommend not setting %'s for your macro goals, rather setting your protein and EFA’s, then worrying about the carbs if you start putting on fat. Fats have the lowest thermic effect, are the most caloric, and are only essential in small amounts. They also slow digestion (miniscule amounts)! Don’t be afraid of the carbs…you will feel SO much better with them and your recovery will be much easier. Basically, I’m saying set your caloric #'s and worry about the total protein first, get your carbs in second, and if you aren’t getting enough fat, add fish oils first!
I’m impressed you’re tackling BBB…that’s way too intense for me (since I’m dieting). Remember to EAT EAT EAT on that type of program. Your BMR will skyrocket with that type of schedule and you should be hungry constantly.
Don’t hesitate to ask any questions along the way. And PLEASE feel free to post “motivational pics” of T-Vixens from time to time ;)[/quote]
Thanks for the pointers, man. I’ll definitely focus on total kcals and protein and then let the carbs and fat just come in as needed. For about 2-3 years, I’ve had this mindset that carbs are evil, so now I do everything to avoid them. I need to change that (and I have for the past two days).

Very true. I also read a number of his old T-Cell Alpha posts, and they mimic what he’s saying now (about how the T-Cell is a place for serious lifters or people who aspire to be serious lifters, where people engage in intelligent discussion). Now, a few of the recent posts haven’t been too intelligent (I’m sure you know which), but that doesn’t mean I should refrain from posting!
