Alrite, I'll be brutally honest here.
I was able to request PN for a birthday present last November. I bought it to be able to gain access to the forum, and finally have an eating strategy. Did I start it? No. I didn't have the balls to prepare meals and go out of my way to make them quality meals. I read feedback, read articles, and seldom visited the forum. However, I tried to follow the principles, as they made sense.
This past summer, I sat myself down,told myself that there were no excuses, and tried to disregard all these articles coming out about no carbs at night, only carbs in morning, cycle them all the time, look at macronutrients..etc.. basically, I was confused like you, and unsure of what to do
I decided to Fuck it, and adhere to PN. I'm in college now, have started eating in accordance to the ten habits, and like it. I don't get sleepy throughout the day, and rarely binge like I used to. The only draw back? I can't eat enough. I'm packing close to 3000 calories a day, and have room FOR MORE. Just pick one strategy, and follow it. Just like CT said about lifting programs, "If you don't have faith in it, you won't adhere to it, and won't succeed".
