Warning: this a gripe about life post. Ignore if you wish. This is just a little writing therapy.
Several weeks ago I was on course, dialed in. Using Waterbury’s 10x3 for fat loss (and also a little weight vest walking w/ the dog) and sticking to a basic, hi protein moderate carb lots of veggies no calorie counting diet. I was losing .75 inches a week for 3 WEEKS STRAIGHT!. Not hard to do since I’m fat. (I am pretty sure the pictures on my T-Page are fairly recent and still depict my build).
I was doing well but I was going through a 5lb tub of Whey a month. I was also using green tea extract, a multi and several grams of vitamin C a day. Then my wife threw out my supplements when I placed another order for protein powder. She (all 5’8" 280lbs of her) threw away my supplements. Well i went to eating the way she does and got fat again.
Today, I have a cold and took 3 packets of emergen-C that’s a whopping 3 grams of vitamin c and she is worried I am taking too much. It’s very frustating. I know how to feed my body, I know what works for me and I never push it on her. I’m just frustated because I feel she is ignorant in some areas and is using emotional arguments to change my actions. Was I, am I really taking too many supplements? (p.s. Im more of a martial athlete than a bodybuilder if that factors into your opinion)
