  • I will jump in..... I have high A1C. I have know this for several years. I found out via the Life Insurance health check (just one more thing about me that p*$$ed off my now ex-wife about me). I never did anything about the high A1C until six years ago. I very much enjoy Keto. I am a creature of habit when it comes to food…
  • I am pretty much a creature of habit! Since I am following Keto (because of high A1C) I eat four scrambled eggs and six slices of bacon. Pretty much every morning. Today was no exception. Now, this is going to change soon but this has been my go-to for several months. I really enjoy it...it gets in a good amount of protein…
  • Ha! Sitting in the University Parkway Starbucks RIGHT NOW! What would you like? :-)
  • I really want to tell everyone who has replied to this post just how much I appreciate all of the input. Several of the really really really smart people have taken time out of their day to comment. So, thank you to everyone....I hope that this thread has helped numerous people....if only making folks aware of the programs…
  • I LOVE THIS! I think that it is awesome when women want to get stronger....I wish you all the best fortune in your journey to getting stronger. Now, for glutes, I find that NOTHING beats hip thrusters. Sure, super awkward! Crappola! I know all about that! I am the only guy in the gym doing them....don't care one bit what…
  • You and Dr. Mike! HA! Ain't nothing wrong with that at all. He is one smart cookie! Has an odd sense of humor, but then again so do I. :-)
  • AMEN to this! It is way too easy to already know what you are going to eat. That way - no decisions! I have a VERY addictive personality and I know what happens if I allow stupid to be an option - STUPID! I learned this a long time ago about myself.... When I started using MFP and logging | tracking it was really…
  • I like Option 1. The first competition is all about the experience and learning what happens when and how. Cutting would not be something I would want to do. But that is me.
  • I was following Strong Lifts for a few months...and then started doing my owm programming. Which is why I am not doing power lifting any longer (have not for some three months). I was training balls to the wall all the time and would do great until I hurt myself. No bueno. I was at 85% of 1RM all day, everyday. Dumb dumb…
  • Well, I am a bit off - so this will be okay. I like the same things, day-in and day-out. I will keep everyone posted. I will make a "this is my RFL journey" post....and, yes @Laces918 - I will include those blasted "starting pic" and weekly (or whatever) update pics! ARGH! :-) So, everyone be warned!!!! I mean, forewarned…
  • I tried the mixed grip....even though I swore that I never would...and injured my left bicep pretty quickly. It was one-part too heavy and one-part bad form. I was too dang tired but did something I had never done before and was inspired and exceeded my abilities. But, the reason that I was messing around with the mixed…
  • I started doing Keto (because of high A1C) while I was doing Power Lifting...I had to do Carb Timing to have a chance. I would eat a Sweet Potato about one hour before...otherwise the training session that day was horrible. I am 51....had not squatted since high school (started Power Lifting some 18 months ago...well, 20…
  • @Laces918It is in the mail! LOL! It will be coming soon.....as much as I hate the idea....it is time to get a little uncomfortable and just do it. Not such a bad thing. Well, we will see, right?
  • I actually purchased the Extremely Rapid Fat Loss program from Lyle McDonald's web site (for a whopping $5) and loved it. I did that last week...Friday I want to say (so, ran that Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday). But, remember Stephanie, I do Keto so no carbs (and this was 100% Protein....glad that I LOVE tuna!!!) is…
  • Thank you. I was honestly really pumped about this (thus, the somewhat brain-dead decision) but it is okay. Maybe one day I will be in a position to do UD 2.0. That is the goal. I do tend to get a little bit ahead of myself in my excitement. I LOVE a good challenge.... So, I roughly know how this UD 2.0 program is layed…
  • Really awesome! And your little rug rat is super cute. Great job!
  • Wow! Folks, that is what consistency can do for you. And, from how it sounds, perfect example of 'trust the process'. Amazing work - in both cuts and bulks! I know how much of a challenge it can be to eat and eat and then eat a little bit more. Becomes a true 'chore'! Great idea about not tracking while you bulk because…
  • Agree....100%.....and I would suggest, generally speaking, that for your first Power Lifting competition I would not even think about cutting. The first Power Lifting competition is all about becoming familiar with the rules and the format and the lifts. It is different in the gym vs. in a competition. If I might ask, in…
  • Yes, ma'am! It is indeed a Protein Sparing Modified Diet! I will be buying it soon! Assuming that this is what I decide to do!
  • Thank you, @rose2_0! Now, please don't call yourself an idiot. You might do idiotic things.....I would not argue there! LOL! What is the diet plan like? Generally speaking?
  • I am not going to comment on what someone might have meant....or if someone is just being lazy with language. I find Keto works very well for me - generally speaking. I really enjoy the foods that I eat. I love carbs, but they do not seem to love me back. Which is unfortunate (I can make some mean I-talian foods.....). So,…
  • Very nice trick! Now, why did I not think of that? Been enjoying Keto since 2018 FEB 01....love it. Sucked when I was power lifting....but that is not Keto's fault! :-) Enjoy! I am guessing that you have seen the Keto and Low Carbers Groups?
  • Ha! I really like "crazy, bat s**t" stuff! Not people....stuff! The guy from powerliftingtowin.com did a RFL regime and he seemed to really like it. I follow him and have a lot of respect for him...so, he was quite positive. I am going to sleep on it and will very likely decide tomorrow. Thanks, everyone! It is nice to…
  • Honestly, that has been sounding more and more interesting the more I look at it. And.....I am past the "let's get hyped" point and actually using my brain (the reason side)...
  • I have been thinking - after getting SUPER pumped about this - that it might not be the best idea for me, @moogie_fit! Last week I did a test and ate a box of cereal (yes, the whole freaking box!) and things did not go so well for me. I am doing Keto because of high A1C and carbs affect me a little bit differently from the…
  • Good afternoon! Might I ask a few questions? 1. How did you determine your maintenance caloric intake? 2. Are you logging your food? And, by logging, I really mean "tracking" or "counting calories"? 3. Are you also hitting your macros (macro-nutrients: Proteins, Carbs, Fats, Fiber)? 4. So, using the TDEE way (and not the…
  • I was awaiting your reply....so, thank you very much for answering. I am also interested in how the big carb days will affect me. Kinda why I am not doing this yet. Kinda why I posted this question. I am not worried one bit about the training sessions. I have puked in the gym several times before....people would not be…
  • Very nice. I have been doing Keto since February 1, 2018 and really enjoy it. Well, the power lifting on Keto (but not Keto-adapted) really sucked, but I am not doing power lifting any longer. I really enjoy this way of eating and am going to do something silly come August 1. So, won't be Keto shortly thereafter. But, it…
  • Yes, I noticed that..... And I also noticed the "my ribs are gone" And, the sizes of "xs-small" would indeed suggest lbs. But....Easy to ask. Too many things pointing one way.....but then something pointing (possibly) another way. So, I ask. Likely a waste of time, but you would not believe the silly things that I resolve…
