  • Layne, What's your take on maltodextrin in a postwork out drink? I'm not cutting. My postwork out drink consists of 50g of isolate whey protein, 2 tbsp peanut butter, and 2tbsp of maltodextrin. For me I find that less protein in a postwork out drink and I feel very fatigued following a big training session. I only use the maltodextrin in my postwork out drink. As additional info, I also have a 25g protein drink A.M., and another in the afternoon.
    Thank

      im not layne but imo i would drop the peanut butter , keeping fat low post workout so the nutrients can get in your system as quick as possible , fat will slow down the process

My philosophy is to keep as many carbs as possible while still maintaining the appropriate rate of fat loss... what that carb level ends up being varies for the individual
        I've actually been trying out Dave's diet for a little over six weeks now and it's done pretty good by me. It's easy to keep my calories low and I have higher energy levels than I've had in the past while dieting, and I definitely haven't been feeling like crap. I was going to switch it up and reduce my fat and add in complex carbs for a few weeks pretty soon so I'll be sure to post how it effects me.

            I would drop the peanut butter as aformentioned that will slow digestion; save the PB for later.

              Calipers say 9%. I realise they have a pretty big margin of error but that seems to be about right.

                  • I average somewhere between 2000-2200 calories these days, though I gradually lowered my calories to where I am now. That number can vary depending on my schedule too, some days I'm up longer, and I also will an in an extra meal if it's been a particularly taxing day. I had a cheat meal maybe once or twice a week until recently, and now it's once every two weeks. Cheat meals are usually just a bunch of complex carbs, my favorite being a huge chicken and black bean burrito with lots of veggies and salsa and guacamole

                    I switched training routines about two weeks ago. Since mid-December, I'd been training on a three day split based off of Dave Draper's old routine. I knew I was gonna meet him, so I figured I might as well be doing his workout I added forearm work into arm day and more leg work than what he laid out though, and I end every workolut with stretching and vacuums. I'd go through it twice a week, then take a day off. It was hard, but once I got used to it it was so much fun. My workout partner and I decided to cruise for a bit though, so we've been doing a five day split. I do cardio six days a week first thing in the morning on a treadmill, and sometimes I'll do a fast walk on an incline at night (my knees started to hurt when I ran twice a day).

                    I've been leaning out very steadily, though my weights not actually been dropping much. But I use the mirror as my main guide, not the scale or calipers. Like you say Layne, if you don't have seperated hams and striated glutes, you have more dieting

                            It just goes to show no matter how much anyone knows about nutrition, there is no one right plan for any one person. It's important to try different things to see 1) what is effective 2) what you can follow and 3) what you enjoy the most.

                              I agree. I like trying new things, and so far in my experience, most diets and exercise programs (within reason) will work so long as you stick to them and do them right. Certainly I think there needs to be a good rational with supporting evidence behind any diet or exercise program.

                              • Hi Layne
                                I have 11 weeks till my contest, but I'm almost ready (minus 1-2 kg max). I'm eating now close to maintance (64 kg, 2000-2200 kcals sometimes with "junk") My problems:
                                - could eat everytime
                                - weakness, tiredness
                                - training: 2 on (upper, lower) 1 off, no cardio at all.
                                How should I continue?
                                Thanks
