Trash soda after workout - ok in moderation?

Hi - Short version: If I have quite an exhausting workout that leaves me somewhat dizzy and a bit spaced out - is it a good idea to counter the drop with pure refined sugar? is it a good time to sneak in a fanta or is this counter productive to a low carb fat loss diet? Long version: Today I did my ...

I always have this fear where if i put weight on it will be fat and if I drop weight it will be muscle. As someone with only 8 months exercise (all be it quite strict/regular) I worry that a large part (1/4 or somethin) could be lost by dropping weight too fast. I suppose the best way to test this i...

As a newbie i'll just go over little parts and what I've done, it's not advice as such, more of a comparison, as I'm new myself. Protein shakes/replace meal? The thing is once I got into eating 6-8 times a day (still wit 3 main meals but..) these shakes would replace one or two of these small meals ...

Anything will work for a while if it restricts calories but the only way to sustain it for life is to base it on real food. Potatoes, onions, carrots, etc all qualify as real food. Everybody wants a quick fix. They don't want to take responsibility for themselves. I'm only like 8 months in but Im g...

Why I didn't think of this earlier *slaps forehead* Whats the deal with carbs on non workout days? (Wed/sat/sun)? I actually do 100 light(ish) squats on sunday (10x10) just as an addon for leg work since I only really do a decent leg session once a week, and squats seem to just ... work... so I coul...

Any form of dance music gets me buzzing! aha! Now we're talking! Any favourites in particular?

Personally I think becoming drunk or stoned has only negative effects It slides as you age I guess, im certainley less protective of the vice now I'm older and definately see the "need" for it tapering off, I just worried you were coming at me with an all or nothing mentality (not as harsh as that ...

I didnt see your edits above until now I wasn't joking about the drinking/stoner sessions - but since this is a strict phase it will only be smoking, not the ice cream/pizza/beer. I assume you were refering to A: during this period B: the food involved and not the beer/smoking? is that right? or do ...
