Dave's approach is a bit hard mentally because instaed of eating "food" you are swallowing omega-3 caps and taking flax oil by the spoon. The high point is maybe the 3 meals I have 2 handfuls of almonds which actually take up some stomach space and you can chew them and eggs in the morning.
hey evan heard 4 the nationals u dieted in a high protein high fats diet, i was woundering how calculate your fat intake?
The high fat high protein diet makes bb appreciate the green vegetables that most say are gross and unnecessary. Those first 3-5 days on no carbs is like SEALS hell week if you lift hard and do alot of cardio. A plate of brocolli or green beans is like filet mignon
Dave said on the show that he has seen guys eat about 500g carbs in that one cheat meal. I just want to eat with my family and not be thinking about watching the carbs so on Saturdays when they eat out they pick some fairly healthy restaurant and I just let loose for one meal but no dessert Its nice to eat what and when everyone else is eating once a week and not feel like your the outsider with the chicken breast and brocolli and some omega pills while craving just a plain baked potato. But you always get those same "questions" from your family like "Is that all you want to eat?" or better yet "What are those pills? " while they order the lasagna, pizza, garlic bread (everything I love) plus dessert. Dammit...it's karma I guess.
Hey Evan - I need some advice on lat training, but first I wanted to say how much I respect and admire your achievements thus far. I envy your drive and commitment and wish that I had had what it takes 10-12 years ago in my early 20s when I could really have made dramatic gains. I know I'm coming a bit late to the party, but I'm still making an effort and have seem some progress over the last couple of years. Anyway, nice work - looking forward to seeing great things!
Now, here's my question. I've always had trouble feeling like I'm getting anything out of my lat training. I do OK with deadlifts and rowing movements for the rest of my back, but I never seem to feel like I've truly worked my lats. I've tried lower volume, higher weight and higher volume, lower weight. For exercises, I've done mainly pulldowns and pull-ups, but I never seem to feel sore or to see much in the way of results.
Do you have any suggestions for exercises, regimen or anything else that might help?
Thanks in advance!
thanks bro, what food would u recomend 4 to get essential fats, u also said u took in liquid form what kind, thanks oh and by the way i saw the pix of the finals and man you were shredded from head 2 toe seems dave's approach worked.GOOD LUCK ON THE NATIONALS THIS YEAR
Yea dave and vince g, have very similar philosophies when it comes to dieting. It seems to work, and it makes total sense, but those carbs are OH SO GOOD at times
Well good luck in the future, and hopefully you can get some deals and stop working that nine to five sooner than later!
Evan, congrats of your success so far! You're fastly becoming one of my new favorites, specifically because a lot of your build reminds me of myself...although yours is ahead of mine. Also, like you, although I played sports growing up, I was always a bit of a chunky kid, now that I'm into the entire BB thing I really have to watch my carb intake even during off-season training. I know you've mentioned in some of your other post that Dave has you on some harsh Keto diets for comp prep, but what about off season? What does your daily protein/carb/fat intake look like in the off season, e.g. totals per day, are carbs only pre and post training, etc?
Du wirst um Gnade flehen!
