All ou have to do is remind them that nutrition is just as important (if not more important) than the routine you use. You dont have to eat that much protein, you just wont get the best results in recovery. If its not possible for you, just dont complain that you arent getting the results you want. I was doing GOMAD for awhile and while i felt bloated and gassy, i felt so strong while lifting and almost never had severe DOMS. That bloat went away and i kept the size that the milk gave me. I still consume alot of milk, but i dont try to make a gallon a day anymore.

If anyone tells you, a lifter that has yet to build a substantial amount of muscle and strength, that you can simply ignore progression and use advanced training tools as a replacement, run far away.
That is one of the most important things i have learned so far. Thar everything you do (exercises, routines, regimen) is all a tool in your toolbox. You dont have to use it but it there if you want to. Everyone is different and everyone responds to different exercises and different training methods. Thats part of the fun and interesting aspect of training is that you have to find out what works for you.

The real secret of my success is that I love the iron. I enjoy training. If you don't enjoy lifting and do it just for results...good luck.

...and ignorance about food maybe.

I used to think that the only way get enough protein/ calories was to be CONSTANTLY be eating.


Eventually I figured out how to knock out a good chunk of my daily needs in one sitting with a blender and the right ingredients.

I also learned about foods that were calorie dense and protein dense (e.g. nuts mixed with 4 percent cottage cheese)

Weakness training? I attack everything like it was a weakness. I make my strengths stronger and my weaknesses stronger. There is no downside to this approach.

I stay away from noise. That includes Youtube comments and he said/she said Youtube fitness channels and videos.

I focus on my mission. I could care less what unproductive people are doing. I have a goal each day and I go after it.

I've read about 10 Youtube comments in my life, and watch only a few channels. Noise is noise. It's just like TV. I avoid all things that keep me from being productive. Noise will always distract you from your mission.

I don't have time for all the bull. If you invest time in it each day it twists your brain and damages your morale.

Yes, humanity has a dark side. I'm not going to let that dark side corrupt me. One life, one legacy.

Now, more than ever, we have a chance to impact the lives of others. Either you can wake up and choose to do this, or you can wake up and invest time in all the noise and idiocy.

Choose wisely.

BtB, your post is relevant as a thought in general and not just a lifting thought. Great attitude. But İm less optimistic that we have a chance to impact the lives of others, simply because everyone whos looking for help is subjected to so much noise anyway.

OK, my question is this Brute - how many grams of fat went with those 350g of protein? Protein beer? I've been eating about 215g of protein lately, yes powders!!
