  1. That’s kind... they’re not really on the same level of crazy as some of the other stuff on this site.
  2. Couple of thoughts: - MFP isn’t very accurate unless you’ve actually measured the food yourself and created your own entries. You’re better off capturing it in a spreadsheet and then replicating meals that you know the exact numbers for. - The MFP theory of aggregating your total calories with your ‘earned’ calories is nice in theory but it doesn’t work in practice. There is a method of using your estimated level of exercise as a weighting factor in what your total daily needs should be, but that’s about fixing the daily amount - not saying ‘OK but I did a 100km on bike today so I
  3. Late entry because I saw Ayto was competing
  4. That’s sad to hear, Roxii. Yurtie was a measured and quality poster when Trannies was at its most feral; seems a very good guy.
  5. I think all you haters missed the critical point in the article: The fitness competitor, who has her own training program, Success guaranteed when you have your own training program.
  6. My new career is paying quite well, yes. Surprised how many guys are into it. I suspect if it was just a choice between the two, you'd be right. But the core driver for me is counting macros, with a very high protein / low carb / low fat approach, rather than LCHF. And with building strength as a key objective, ie. body recomposition rather than losing weight per se. So that in the end, I've put on a fair bit of muscle while dropping that weight. The IF has definitely been a key component, but I think that's primarily because it helps me control my eating - ie. it's a lot har
  7. Do you mean time restricted as in specifically the Dr Panda circadian rythym bit, or intermittent fasting in general? I’ve had very good results from an overall change which included deleting breakfast - which gives you ~16-17 hours fast per day (depending when you eat dinner). But I’d put that as kind of ancillary - the core difference for me was switching off cardio onto gym and eating better. Went from what I thought was a reasonably healthy weight at 76.5, to a not-quite-happy-yet weight at 68.5. Whereas my lowest race weight ever was 74.5 for a HIM.
  8. Correct. Also from an evolutionary perspective, in cave times you basically had a fight or flee response, so that for example if a lion attacked your tribe you could run away, or stand your ground and like bench press the yellow f&cker right out of there. Which didn’t have the same success rate on a lion-by-lion basis, but overall meant more chance of passing on your genes, because your existing kids wouldn’t get eaten while you were running off into the jungle, but also because the chicks who were coupled up with the running-off types would get the picture real fast. Same thing happens
  9. I'm big on weights. When I was a superstar triathlete I used to train and race a lot, but had man boobies. Now I work out all the time and never do any cardio and am ripped. I would encourage people not to believe all the lies around cardio.
  10. Change sport. Unless you really have a genuine life-long boner for Triathlon, it does has a very poor ROI for just being fit and healthy.

  12. Feel for you mate. It’s not a situation you deserve.
  13. Maybe the kid is sick of not getting much attention? Do they actually spend any time doing anything except exercising and sleeping I wonder.
  14. Why are they doing it? I assume I missed something fundamental in the back thread? Edit - nm, found it on the blog.
