Try drinking 2%, Low Fat-1%, or Skim (tweak until you find the one that works best for you). You can up the whey protein by adding a scoop of dry milk.

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

the uneven abdominals may also be a side effect of the use of human growth hormone, which causes growth of the guts-yes really-along with elongation of the hands, feet, jawbone. It's not a good look

I disagree Aaron. Lower fat milk skews the C-P-F ratio towards carbs considerably. If you can't handle a gallon of whole milk, less whole milk is better, IMO, than more of a lower-fat version.

Agreed. Eating fat doesn't make you fat.

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

That dude may have been using synthyrol, in addition to the juice. I don't believe the report it sound I think it is a scare tactic. I do not condone steriod use. Just seems like a boogy man story.

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

Testosterone converts to DHT, which fuels acne. If you take a little testosterone it converts to a little DHT. If you take a ton, it converts likewise. In using steroids, a little goes a long way. Many steroid users falsely think that if a little is good, more will be better. Crazy doses of, say, 3,000mg a week are not 6 times better than 500mg a week.

Dirty skin fuels acne. Steroid users need to shower well and often.

A crummy diet fuels acne. Steroid users should be just as careful as anyone with their diet, although steroids do allow you to be nutritionally careless if you choose it.

Only someone who is mentally ill or has a personality disorder would allow himself to progress to such an advanced disease state. Steroids didn't cause that. Crazy people get guns too, and hurt more people than just themselves with them. That doesn't amount to a reason to condemn guns. Crazy and/or stupid people doing stupid things is part of the way the world works. Sometimes they get drugs and hurt themselves.

Based on pharmaceutical industry statistics (yes, there are legitimate Rxs for steroids - many are for men in their 60s and 70s on HRT or hormone replacement therapy) plus various drug enforcement agency estimates, there are millions of doses of steroids being consumed by tens of thousands of users. The popular press treats steroids like plutonium. If you're in the same room with steroids you're automatically going to die a horrible death. Where are all the bodies? Don't extrapolate from this one schmuck's experience to say this "proves" how bad steroids are for you. There was a study in the 60's that "proved' squats are bad for the knees. It's not an "if A, then B" situation. There is as large a range of variables with steroid response as with any drug.

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

Mike are you making a case for the use of illegal performance enhancers? Or saying not everyone that uses steroids is doing so illegally?

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

Not sure if the symmetrical abs thing is a joke or not, but I have completely asymetrical abs and have never used steroids. Pretty sure it has nothing to do with it.
