Re: Diet on a Budget

I'm no expert but I def think you should ditch the granola bar, and all that dairy along with the banana. You want to feed the lean mass....but I can't fathom eating that small of an amount of food....

Re: Main Page Programming

Yeah I get that, but they just put out that "compilation" of training material and found that relevant...so aren't we to assume that's the suggested method of programming? Maybe I'm missing...

Re: losing my gut
