    I use it if I diet.. Just last year was my first time dieting lol
    Don't count calories if I'm bulking
    I'm a chef so food everywhere... I would be puting food all day long on it.
    But it's very helpful to get an idea of the macros you are ingesting

    Agreed. I also only use it for a diet. I will use it for the clean bulk i am planning on when this prep is over.

    I have been having 8oz of protein with each meal but next week I will be bumping it up to 10oz each chicken/beef meal. My diet before I started was more basic and wasn't crisp enough so I wanted to give myself some ease in time to this diet as I have some GI issues.
    It's that enough calories??
    2500..
    I cut on that last year

    Yeah my calories have been too low but upping the Protein by 50g a day and upping the fat some more too will be beneficial. I need to add in peanut butter into some type of snack to add in some good fats and help up the caloric intake daily. Ill have to take a look at the app you suggested.

    Goodluck at the show! It does take alot of time to make sure you prep right but a win is always worth it.

    Pinned yesterday morning nice and early at 6AM. Some soreness later in the day and today as well. I think I'm moving the needle too much once injected into the skin. I had to hit the Left Glute and to twist my body even when using a mirror was tough and I was alittle shaky so that might be causing the extensive soreness but its no big deal. It also was the first time in the left glute so i'm thinking once those virgin muscles are introduced it will be a little easier

    Pinned the Right quad today with another 200mg and I've noticed my Quads are definitely more sensitive to the poke than my Glutes are. I've got another 2 weeks at 400mg per week and then we will see where I go from there and if I start to notice any sides in the next 2 weeks as the test E starts to really sit in. On Monday though I did have Leg day where I actually put of 40lbs more on my 2RM Squat than what I had 2-3 weeks ago so that was a huge plus! It might have also been from the girl standing near me with the nice ass but whatever it was I was throwing around some more weight

    Feeling good this week for sure! Ramping up the protein and getting creative in ways to add in some extra here and there. Just got a free box of protein bars in that I can start to use as a snack if I know I can't get a meal in for longer than I would like.
