That's too much milk.
Everything in moderation.
Nothing is excess.
True, at the same time in an untrained guy looking to gain weight, he's probably weak and hasn't lifted before, you want him on the squats and deadlifts to rattle the system then you pack the ****ing milk on, all the other food, tons of it, and he'll get some fat but he'll get a **** load of muscle too, and then he'll have a strong strength foundation then the sky is the limit after that, but he'll probably enjoy training for strength for the rest of his life
i wouldn't call him weak...he may be average or we don't even know. He hasn't posted his stats year, so it would be unfair to assume his strength level.
Rattle system? For what? Sounds like a one shot deal, which never works.
If he's untrained, he's better off with a periodization program followed by a maintenance stage.
Theres no reason or need to kill your body right away and overload on everything.
Before hitting the squat rack, practice burpees, squat jumps, and kettlebells. Using technique but more application of power. A stiff body hinders technique...i would save squatting for the second month once he's comfortable with using his body in a 90 degree angle (squat down phase position). The gains are beneficial also because the barbell squat or front squat will add greater results after him preparing for it for a months time as apposed to just jumping right into it.
Squatting in a comfortable and controlled fashion is very important, and that takes so much time and practice, it's something not everyone gets right away. I rather see him gradually get into it within a month or two of work before he starts squatting religiously.
It doesn't make you a better person either because you can lift more in one repetition. You may get embarrassed in other components of fitness such as muscular endurance (can you do 100 push ups or 50 pull ups consecutively?), power (how well can you combined speed + strength in the shortest amount of time?), flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, agility, hand eye coordination, stability, and balance.
All of fitness components are important. One isn't more important than the other. If you just focus on one, you make yourself weaker overall.
Superheros with one superpower are never popular.
That's why superman can do so much cool ****...and guys like arm fall off boy, squirrel girl and cypher aren't well known. Having one superpower isn't cool enough.
Train all fitness components and respect yourself, it's hateful to thyself to be one dimensional. Peace - flexo.
Everything has carbs. It's impossible to not eat carbs for 12-14 days.
Carbs are the primary source of ATP. Using fat is the only source for energy isn't natural unless and is only going to work you're working out softcore. No point in working out if you're not trying to achieve anything.
This is a short fix diet, and terrible for long term.
Mental fogness and fatigue aren't suppose to happen from fueling your body.
Animal fats aren't good for you(saturated)
It's not like your eating fat the whole day. The distribution is 60% fat, 35% proteins and ~5% carbs. And your carbs are only from vegetables to give your body vitamins and roughage. The first 12 days you are giving your body time to adapt to start using fat as the primary energy source (and belive me, it's not impossible). After that you have the first "refeed" and then every 5 days one or two "refeed days". It's really not that bad.
Competitive athletes or people who train at high levels of fitness cannot follow this diet because of low glycogens. Humans are physically impaired if you take away their carbs.
Carbs are a primary source of ATP. Theres nothing wrong with carbs, it's just a matter on how you balance you low glycemic and high glycemic carbs and keeping it at a 50-55% of your dietary intake. This also builds up your arteries when you get older.
Yeah thanks Metro I appreciate it.....
It just came out of no where (my brother becoming "manic") and the biggest change that happened right before was this fasting/diet thing he was doing....who knows if it triggered something in him or what....but that's why I brought it up just so ppl don't over do it with diets and what not because it can impact you negatively. I am pretty sure there has to be other factors (I.e. grandparents passing, new baby, etc) but Im no doctor, all I know is my brother is a college grad, doesn't do drugs, never had any mental health issues and all the sudden he is in a friggin psych ward and the biggest change prior was his diet so everyone take it easy and lets enjoy a Celtic ass kicking tonight!!!!

I haven't posted on this site in months because I was irritated at some people on the forum and I've been busier due to being in college now, but I decided to take a look this afternoon and see what you guys are up to.
In case you all missed it, I haven't been healthy my entire life. Ive always been overweight and sluggish. In October, I was sick and did nothing but eat. I ended up at around 235 pounds. In November, I decided to make a change for myself and do something. It started with going to the gym everyday
I checked myself in the scale last week and i weighed 218. I lost 17 pounds in a matter of months. I beat the Freshman 15, and I'm not stopping.
Admittingly, my diet isn't stellar, and I seldom eat fruit. But the most important thing I did was quit putting **** into my body on a consistent basis; like Metro said, moderation is key. My diet is alright and it doesn't suck. I quit eating red meat, white bread, quit drinking soda, really cut back on fried foods, and started calorie counting. The Myfitnesspal app was very helpful to me in this. If I eat burgers, I'm eating veggie and turkey burgers. If I'm eating anything fried, it's probably sweet potato fries. I also eat things like tuna wraps, chicken salads, granola, greek yogurt, nuts, and so on. I do mostly cardio with muscle every now and then; most of the fat is on my stomach so I'm trying my best to focus on abs. I'm starting to get into running, albeit progress is slow and steady. Hoping to do a 5K this summer when I get back to Vegas, although in 115 degree heat that may not be a good idea. Also during the summer I plan on playing basketball again and doing something like ballroom dancing to keep myself active.
Once I month I go for a cleanse and drink Blueprint juice. Here is the website http://blueprintcleanse.com/
It's a bit pricey considering it's $10 a bottle and you're having one every day, but remember this is taking the place of a meal. It's nutritious and tastes great and leaves me feeling more energetic throughout the day. You can pick it up at Whole Foods; I usually shop at the one at the Bowery at the 2nd Ave F Train station.
And as for humans not needing to eat meat, Metro you're absolutely right. That has been proven; plenty of my vegan/vegetarian friends have told me this before as further justification for their lifestyle. Do your body right and it loves you back. I don't think I could give white meat up, though.
Anything I'm missing in my diet/daily routine? Hope y'all are doing well.
