Last I'd heard the average American diet has way more protein than you'd need. So assuming you're not eating a diet that consists solely of lettuce and beans any of those protein shakes or protein bars is a waste. But that's from a nutritional standpoint; if consuming them makes you feel like you're able to push yourself farther or if it makes you more enthusiastic for your workouts then by all means go for it.

What are the benefits of sleeping eight hours at night? And what happens if you don't especially for those who work at night?

Your skin grows paler, even as your eyes appear to sink into pools of dark. You will gradually develop an aversion to sunlight. Eventually, the people around you start looking like juicy slabs of meat. After that, it's just a small step to a daily (nightly?) diet of fresh blood for sustenance.

Seriously though, I worked from 2pm to 11pm five days a week for about four years. My sleeping patterns were seriously disrupted as a result. I tended to sleep at 3am and wake up at around 11am or noon. Other than that, I didn't notice any physical effects. I did get very grouchy though if I were to wake at noon, because that would have left only about enough time to wash up and rush to work. That would be extremely depressing, because it would feel as though I had no life outside of the office.

You get jumpy. That is all. You immediately freak out and panic in the dark whn it is simply your NVG being knocked out of alignment.

In fact, if you have been missing sleep for a long period of time and sleep less for that period of time, there are two things that will happen : one being that your body adjusts accordingly by sleeping less or you simply sleep longer for the subsequent period to make up.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Naw, it's been there for awhile. My brother uses it once in awhile. He's a hardcore runner, but if anything I would say he needs carbs more than protein since he runs (half and full marathons) more than works out.

I am trying to add muscle, but just to look more lean and "lose" the fat around my belly, dem ol love handles . I don't want to be "buff", it just looks weird, especially if I ever got a buff lolz. Short azn dude with mad muscles looks weirdddd. I guess I wanna work out to the point where people can already tell that I workout. Some of my friends have noticed, but usually it's because I have bigger arms than usual due to years of tennis, but in terms of strength, I'm not that strong.

More like crapton of sodium too haha! My diet is er...okay I guess haha. It used to be way worse (tons and tons of fast food or going out last year) but ever since I started school and cut my work hours, I tend to eat homemade food and homemade sandwiches (typically PBJ). My typical post workout meal is a sandwhich: sourdough bread, pesto sauce, and mozzarella cheese with basil leaves and tomatoes + Gatorade.

Bro alright let me give the lowdown here.

I don't want to see any mention of carbs anywhere ever, in general it should be no carbs at all.

But John, what does the 'in general' mean? Bro alright when you get down to about ~10% Body Fat Percentage we'll talk choosing 'okay' carbs, and calorie counting while we're at it.

Before that though, we keep it simple up in here, ya feel me?

But John, we need carbs for energy! It says so on the Food Pyramid thing!

Alright bro here's the shizzle, the Food Pyramid is almost entirely bogus.

No, you do not need carbs.

Carbs give you energy, yes, so what happens if you don't take them?

You die?

No, you burn fat.

Ketosis is the state in which your body is burning fat, a state that is unnecessary with enough carbs.

Mmm, that's some nice 'energy' there, ain't that some shizzle?

So John, does that mean if I don't take carbs I won't get fat?

Yes, but bro don't think it stops with carbs, sugar is your enemy.

Sugar is the white popo that bust the hood.

Most of it is obvious, like soda, some not so much.

Like Fructose, the enemy of mankind, and more importantly, the hood.

Fructose is Fruit Sugar, fruits have sugar yes.

So John, does th-

Yes, it means no damn fruits, ya feel?

But John, what about vitamins?

Never heard of multivitamins? They're a whole lot more efficient than vegetables and fruits, the latter which you should avoid like soda.

So John, I can't eat fruits and carbs, what do I eat?

Meat, fish, eggs, cheese, milk, etc.

Anything, as long as there's no sugar.

Which means it's technically okay to eat vegetables, too, if that's your fetish.

In short, what do we got up in this crack house?

NO SUGAR

WHICH MEANS

NO CARBS

NO FRUITS

Now go get ripped.

Butter is A-okay bro, I don't know if there's any commercial butter that adds sugar and the like, but I probably don't have to mention reading the Nutrition Facts, Ingredients, etc.

If ya'll ain't got no sugar in da hood, fat ain't gonna mess with ya'll.

Eat some real Full Fat Cheese every day for a week, just that, the right supplements will cover your vitamins.

It doesn't matter how much of it you eat, after a week a guarantee you will have lost some weight.

Actually, that was Paracelsus.

He said something like this: "Only a dose separates a cure from a poison."

For cells it is poisonous because osmose pressure caused by the inbalance of ions inside the cell and none in pure HO will cause it to suck in water until it bursts.

On a human on a whole that effect is pretty weak, it's not going to be pure water for long after you drink it. But a lot of it can still be dangerous.
Everything gets too diluted I guess.
You see, the body is pretty good at organizing substances, but water can pass through most membranes.

Over the years, I've just grown to tolerate some vegetables, but not others. I accept that they will always taste not as good (and many even bad) to me and just eat them first and quickly and then take my time with the rest of my food, washing away the taste of vegetables.

Chop them up. Stir fried with a bit of cooking oil and a dash of sesame seed. A bit of seasoning like red pepper doesn't hurt either.

Most people don't like veggies because they get overcooked and mushy. You just toss them around the wok just a couple of minutes until they look brighter and are warm.
