      i had it done when i was a kid. I think i was like somewhere around 130. I doubt i'm the smartest guy here. Honestly I never was that gifted. In high school I had to study my ass off; nothing came real easy. When I talk to kids I went to HS with they said they hardly ever studied where I was studying like 4 hours a night in high school. The only thing I really was gifted with was a good work ethic and that's been enough to carry me. People like Newton, Einstein, James Watson and Francis Crick... those are the truly brilliant people. People who have the mental capacity to discover things because they think so far outside the box. The only thing I've ever done is read research, interpret it, and make my on theories based on it. Nothing extraordinary about that.

      but I appreciate the compliment.

      and thank you all for the birthday well wishes

        That's kinda how I am. But I think having the drive to succeed is far more commendable than simply being born with a gift. Geniuses have no choice whether or not they want to understand a certain concept; it just comes to them. But guys like us, we gotta fight for it bro!

        • Oh Goddamn, I am sorry... Happy Belated Birthday, Layne!! I did not know

          I just found out my grade in Chemistry... I got a 'D+'. Not the best, I know, but it means I do not have to take it again! I think the paper that I wrote on protein saved my grade big time, so I wanted to thank you for pointing me in the right direction for my research.

          Seriously, because of you, I do not have to repeat it, and can move on to my Anatomy/Physiology I class now!!

          • Hey Layne, would fats and carbs combined really cause more fat gain than if one ate the same number of calories, but pro/carb or pro/fat?

            thanks bro

            • Question about nutrition timing

              Let me start by wishing you a happy b-day, somewhat belatedly.

              In the mornings I get up at 0330 take a protein shake for breakfast (maybe have a slice of whole grain, double fiber bread) and head off to the gym. I do weights and then cardio. Then go to work.

              For my post workout protein and creatine, should I stop and rest for 20-40 mins between weights and cardio for supplementing or is it just as effective to continue onto cardio and supplement after the cardio?

              Thanks Dustin

                Layne can correct me if I'm wrong. No need for a meal in between workout and cardio. Just have some BCAA's between the Weight and cardio session then having your post workout drink or meal after the cardio.

                  while it is a bad idea to have a high fat & high carb meal together (lots of fatty acids + insulin = very bad for body comp) the idea that you have to totally seperate carbs from fat is nonsense. Proponants of this method claim that insulin will shuttle fatty acids into adipose & while that is true, fatty acids can be taken up by the adipose without insulin as well.

                      what would "high fat" and "high carb" be considered? most of my meals consist of 2tbsp pb, 45-60g carbs and 35g protein. subjectively i don't consider that high carb or fat but i was just wondering?

                      • i think is probably more than i would go with. that's around 16-20g of fat, that's quite a bit

                          I totally agree with layne here.

                          50-60 grams of carbs isn't all that high,but when consuming fat approx 18-20 grams with it,you are in a danger zone for storing excess body fat(unless you have the metabolic rate of a jack rabbit).Most I'd consume (fat-wise) with 50 g of carbs would be 7-9 grams of healthy fats.And the carb sources would be very low GI in nature.Lentils,barley..that sort of thing.Sweet potato is like a cheat meal for me.

                          BTW...belated happy birthday Layne.

                              Hi Layne, first I hope the hangover from your Bday is not that bad.

                              I have a subtle (read analy raping mosquitos) question that kind of clutters my mind:
                              The 5g of BCAAs we take between two protein boluses (separated by ~4 hours), are they meant to:
                              - reduce catabolism?
                              - enhance anabolism?

                              I know it looks like some nitpicky minutiae but it's got a meaning to me.

                              Thanks.

                              • the idea is 1.5-2 hours is the point at which amino acid levels start to plateau from a meal; so if we give an dose of BCAAs hopefully we deflect plasma levels even further & prevent the leveling off of amino acid levels; thus enhancing synthesis.
