    well thanks but that's not why I do it. There are plenty of other bodybuilders out there who are super strong as well. I have nothing against guys that use, but what bothers me is when people act like you can't train hardcore if you are natural. I'll put my training up against anyone's in terms of intensity

    well the other guys who have columns unless they are sponsored athletes don't get a bunch of pictures. I am not an MD athlete, I'm a columnist. So that's probably why no big pictures.

    They use me for my brain... not my looks

    hey, Layne : I would like to know, how does one even take the first step in becoming a natural bodybuilder? I'm 22 and I have been training for well over 7 years now, eating clean only for about a year (5'8" 205 lbs and pretty lean). I do train very instensely (you get ppl who accuse you of being on gear - I don't have any problem with ppl who do use in an educated manner), but I would just rather stay the way how I am - I would like to compete one day, I just haven't gotten over the mental hurdles and insecurties that come with the territory nor do I possess the know how to even begin.

    are you wondering about how to find competitions near you? or the prep process in general?

    well i'm still not exactly sure what you want but what I can say probably the most important attribute in bodybuilding that no one talks about is patience. Especially in natural bodybuilding. Gains are going to be slow at times and sometimes feel like you are not going anywhere. You have to set short term obtainable goals to keep yourself motivated while never losing sight of your long term goals. I have a good general article on the dieting aspect of show prep http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne36.htm

    I also recommend watching my video series http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/insidethelife.htm

    also check out http://www.naturalbodybuildingevents.com for show dates.

    Go to a few natural bodybuilding shows to watch and learn. It will be an invaluable experience if you intend to compete.

    Layne what would you say is an ideal ratio of shakes to actual food meals when dieting? Everyone is on a whole food kick these days and I personally feel the concept is a bit over-hyped since I've made solid gains consuming about 1/2 of my daily protein from shakes mixed w oat's and oils.
    Thanks

    there is no ideal ratio. despite what broscientists think there is nothing wrong with shakes unless you have some sort of allergy to whey/lactose/etc. The idea is you spend more energy digesting whole foods but I have yet to see any data that shows whole foods on the whole have a significantly bigger impact on thermic effect of food than shakes. But for a second let's pretend they do just for arguments sake, even if that were the case, whey protein has been shown to be significantly more thermogenic than other proteins so at least in the case of whey, even if whole food took more energy to digest, whatever advantage whole food had in that aspect would be more than made up for by the fact that whey has such a big impact on thermogenesis.

    Default Carb Sources

    Layne, How important are the carb sources (ie:complex, simple, fruit, whole, processed, etc.) one uses? Does it really matter, or is it mainly reaching the desired macros regardless of the source. I know some of the guys you prep use what would be considered unorthodox sources in most peoples opinions- Cheerios, Pringles, etc.-and they achieve amazing conditioning. Could you give us a brief rundown on your thoughts? Also, how important is simple VS. complex post workout, say rice cakes VS. oats?

    Thanks
