Are grains bad for you?
I started eating a big bowl of puffed wheat with fermented milk for breakfast everyday, as well as bread and granola bars through the day. This type of food seems to be the only thing I can stomach in large quantities, and I'm a skeletor so I need to put on weight, which I have since I started eating more grains.
But I can't find a defining answer on how healthy or bad this is. Some say it's super healthy others say it's literally toxic. Which one is it?

      eat as much as you can. don't fast like your body is telling you. a week off of gym is probably going to do you more good than working out immediately after feeling better. go for small (<= 5km) walks instead of working out. you're going to feel some fatigue after sets going back to the gym, that's fine, take it light and slowly get back to normal. if your fatigue isn't gone within two weeks go to the doctors.

      get better soon <3

      You need carbs and fats to make gains. Anyone who says otherwise is retarded and has never made any notable gains

      From octobre to february i made a progress of around 30kg, then i cut for 3 months, since then i made pracitically 0 progress. How can i cope? I just changed from 6 workouts per week to 4 workouts. Thats the only difference since i started to bulk again. Also im getting fatter and stronger in other areas

      I would guess you're eating wayyyy too much protein
      Get 0.8g/pound of LEAN BODY MASS(subtract the weight of fat)
      When you eat too much protein is destroys your testosterone making it impossible to make gains

      Get at least double your new intake of protein in carbs and then fill the rest of your calories with fat. Eat like this until your body recovers and starts making test again

          bro, just fucking try it. Everybody here fights with me about this but won't fucking try it which gets them a one-way ticket on the gains train

          Testosterone's overarching function is to run the liver (mainly protein synthesis)
          You want excess testosterone flowing through you to give you better pumps, sex drive, blood flow, and stress management

          When you use up all your test on protein synthesis, your body ups the cortisol as a coping mechanism which destroys your gains

          You can't make androgens without carbs (precursor to test) and you can't make test without cholesterol (fat)

          It's not fucking rocket science but every roiders whose ever been paid to shill supplements has said some number way above and beyond what a natty is capable of synthesizing and so everyone gets retardedly defensive about protein intake.

          Can excess protein intake help keep you leaner? Yes. Will it help you make more gains? Absolutely not because gains come from specific hormones(androgens, testosterone), which come from your diet

          I hit 274lbs at <8% bf at 6'4 in 2018 after using the 0.8g/lb of lean mass method for a couple years

    it's hard to answer this 100%, gluten can technically be bad for you, but then again if you're not intolerant to it, it's not like it's terrible for you. and gluten-free options exist.
    at the end of day, people have been eating bread for at least 14,400 years. only carnivore fags seem to claim "every single plant is toxic to you", which is just retarded.

        That's true. But the wheat we are eating has more gluten due to selective breeding. A guy won a Nobel prize, because it ended starvation in many places. The bad thing is that in the long term gluten is inflammatory and you should limit how much you eat. But as long as you don't have an issue, eat as much as you like

      Gluten is a meme, no one is intolerant to it, you either have celiacs or you have ibs and then a lot of foods fuck you up then. Anyone who has claimed cutting out gluten has helped them is merely a experiencing a placebo effect, and has deeper rooted gut issues

        Not sure about that. Regardless, from what I read, gluten technically can damage your stomach and this results in worse micronutrient absorption. Not like everyone has it, but it's possible.
        Also, bread does contain some amount of FODMAP. Although as someone who gets the shits from oats and rye bread, white bread and pasta do very little to me.

          The only people that it damages have autoimmune disorders(or something similar) like ibs, ibd, or celiacs. It doesn’t damage your stomach, it can cause an autoimmune response in the aforementioned individuals in the small and large intestines which causes the symptoms of bloating, bloody diarrhea, and other gut issues. This is not just limited to gluten and can be caused by a variety of other proteins like gluten, some are even found in oats which nobody screams about as much as gluten even though it has the same affect. If your gut microbiome is healthy, and you do not have the previous mentioned diseases, grains(and all their proteins like gluten) should be just fine for the you as well as the vast majority of people that fall under those stipulations. There will always be exceptions but some blacks have IQs above 120 so everything is possible.

      Bread just decades ago was nothing like the bread you can buy at the store today. It's gone from 2% gluten content to upwards of 12%, not to mention the amount of additives.

    Yes all carbs are bad, however how much you can tolerate depends on your genetics. Some people can tolerate enough for them not to notice the negative effects at all, others are not so lucky and get autoimmune diseases. Then there's the anti nutrients and pesticides (both naturally occurring and added), etc.
    But in the end it's as simple as: whatever works for you is good for you.

    However there is one caveat: the Randle cycle. Long story short, eating fats and carbs together (aka within a 5 days period) when you are not at a caloric deficit means you WILL store fat, but also become chronically inflamed (that's bad). Storing fat is good, especially for babies, milk is about 50/50 carbs/fat (which is why it's the best bulking food).

    If you have no health problems and don't care about, or actively want to gain fat, then enjoy your carbs buddy. As long as you don't spike your insulin levels and don't eat too much fructose. Why? because fructose while it doesn't raise your insulin, it very bad for your liver and glycates 7 times more than glucose. Glycation, along with oxidation, is what makes your "cholesterol" (in reality lipoproteins) go bad and fuck up your health.
    Just only eat OMAD 4 hour window, with maybe something like a small steak 1 hour before workout and 40g of protein 30 minutes after your workout.

    Also fibers can be trouble, while no fibers has no adverse effect (no fibers causing diverticulitis and such is a myth), and keep in mind that carbs are processed way slower in your digestive tract compared to meat, eggs, milk etc.

    Whatever you do, don't change your diet overnight, you need to do it slowly over 6 weeks, or you will absolutely fuck your gut microbiome (a series of 3 day fasts will cure that but it's not a fun process)

    In the end, seed oils are way worse than carbs for health so definitely stay away from these, and only worry about carbs if you have issues.

    I do dumbbell exercises and some weighted calisthenics 3x a week and want to increase overall strength so I started a new progression scheme where I start at 3x5 and add a rep every day until I do 3 days of 3x8 and then repeat with a higher weight. On paper, this will result in a 60lb increase per year (though most lifts are not getting 5lb increments per month). The lower rep sets seem easy for now but I reasoned they'd give me some extra time to adjust to new weights and avoid screwing myself up, esp. shoulders.
    Would adding 1.25lb each week to fixed sets of 3x8 be a better idea? That should also result in 60lbs/year but keeps the work higher.
    I know I'll plateau long before but I wanted to focus on adding weight to these lifts that I'd been sort of stagnating on due to poor progression planning.

      Good, as long as you rest at least every other day (or work a different muscle), give your muscles at least 48 hours to rest.
      >Would adding 1.25lb each week to fixed sets of 3x8 be a better idea?
      Nope, the higher the weight the better (although doing sets of 1RM is fucking stupid and can kill your gainz)

      >The lower rep sets seem easy for now but I reasoned they'd give me some extra time to adjust to new weights and avoid screwing myself up
      If those lower rep sets aren't done to failure/near failure then they are kinda useless in terms of strength gains. If you're worried about joints then either deload every 4 weeks or use the same weight for 4 weeks.

      >I'd been sort of stagnating
      Poor form or not going close enough to failure.

      Long story short the human template during development is kinda made to accommodate both sexes. In the case of nipples, they’re there just in case you turn out to be a girl. If you are one, you get boobies and dispense milk through them once puberty hits. If you aren’t, you keep the nipples but don’t get milk or titties (for the most part) and your body goes down the male development route

      Because all mammals start out as a female, and it's the testosterone levels you get during the first months of development in the womb that determines if you become a male or stay female.
      Also a thing I noticed: This is probably why ftm trannies are so much better at passing as men, than what mtf trannies are at passing as women. Because if women take testosterone, their body will naturally try and change them into men. It doesn't work obviously, it's a bit too late, but it tries regardless because the function is there. This is not the case for males who take estrogen, because estrogen alone isn't what turns fetuses into women, so your body has no function that would turn your male body into a female body

        masculinization is a one way train that only goes forward not back--a women is like a train that never left the station...give her testosterone and with enough time she'll get to the end of the track. The problem that MtF's run into is that you can't really undo the masculinization that has already occurred, which is why there's a big push to start kids on puberty blockers and all that. A biological male who takes estrogen won't lose his facial hair or square jaw, he'll just get little tits and cry more lol.

    I am a repugnant fatbody who is trying to get IST. I got a stationary bicycle last year and I'm up to 10 miles/day on it. This seems to have brought my blood pressure down by 25+ points but so far I'm not losing much weight. The doctor says I seem to be gaining muscle mass. My weight is down less than ten pounds in three months.

    How many calories am I using in those ten miles? When I search for information the numbers are all over the place, from "stationary bicycles aren't good exercise, you use less than 10 calories/mile" to "bicycling 10 miles at a moderate pace uses 1100 calories," both of which seem crazy to me. If it matters, it's a 20+ year old iFit brand bike. I'm doing these ten miles over the course of 55-60 minutes, always with the resistance turned up as far as it will go. The resistance feels like it skips and stutters and cuts in and out, which is probably why I was able to buy the bike so cheap. I guess there isn't anything I can do but try to keep increasing the miles I ride on it, but it's hard when I keep having surgeries and the docs keep telling me I can't exercise for a month afterwards. I feel like I'm starting all over and can't get ahead.

    too many carbs can be inflammatory (yes, even "complex" carbs). some people need less carbs for health reasons. others can tolerate more.

    carbs are good for bulking because they're less satiating. it's basically impossible for me to eat at even a small surplus if i go low carb.

    if you're having a hard time eating enough, one trick i use is to eat some fried bologna. it's not super healthy and I wouldn't suggest eating it daily or anything, but 2 slices of thick cut is like 260 calories and it's real easy to eat.

        Instead of fear mongering, can you suggest something low carb (or at least very low sugar) that has ~10g protein and ~260 calories, that's ready to eat in 5min and can be easily eaten when you're full but still need to hit your calories? Maybe around 3oz or so? Hm?

      Don’t do carnivore, meme diets don’t work, and are not sustainable. It will not make you stronger or better at anything. Just avoid processed food and cook your own meals. A diet with meat, veggies, 100% whole grains, dairy, and fruit is optimal. Every top athletic performer does it. It’s far more enjoyable and sustainable. Restrictive diets like carnivore, veganism, and keto are retarded and no body who does them post body or has a body worth posting.

    How do you guys feels about low reps, high sets, low rest time? For my last two sessions with chin ups I'll do like 5-7 chin ups, rest for 40 seconds, then do it again, and continue to about 7 sets total.

      I think it's underrated, as it allows to do more reps per total time. honestly I don't do it because it's difficult. by about the third set I'll be sweaty and winded but not even be halfway done, so I rather wait longer between sets so as to not be out of breath

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Nobody is going to argue that porn isn't inherently bad for you, so cutting that out is just good. But nofap is mostly about practicing self control and it wouldn't hurt to try and see if it helps you in any way. Just do it gradually, cut it to a few times a week, then once a week etc. and see where it goes. In my experience the first few weeks are the worst but after that the urge is quite easy to resist. My longest streak was 170 something days and I broke it after I had been drinking with a few buddies and was feeling depressed afterwards.
      But beware of one thing, regardless if you fap or not, your body will continue to produce sperm and that sperm will eventuality come out so don't sleep naked

          You weight 140lbs you carry 140 lbs in each hand, how is that hard to understand? It's a good goal to have.
          Of course a beginner might only be able to carry half of their bodyweight per hand, but you should be fine with at least 0.75x BW/H.
          Heavy farmers carries are done over a short distance, it's not like I'm asking you to go for a marathon carrying that weight.

          Just become an upper body machines bro for a few weeks then

          Why would you do for example 3x5 with 5 minute rests when you can do 15x1 with 1 minute rests if strength is your goal? I can move more weight that way in the same time

          The closer you get to your 1RM, the more taxing it is. Not a linear relationship.
          You could lift more weight, but you are disproportionately killing yourself with each set

          >8-12 reps for hypertrophy, 5-8 for strength
          What's the equivalent if I use low weight, higher reps? or does it not work like that?

          >Anything I can do to improve my refraction period after ejaculation?

          >Is it safe to start a 3 year old on a body weight workout regime?

          More accurately is how close you get to RPE 10. Lower the weight enough and you’ll get bored or tired waaaaay before you get close to exhausting your muscle

        Same sort of stuff you'd buy from any grocery store. Prepackaged ground meats, cuts of beef, bags of veggies, etc. If the packaging is overly bulky, Ill repackage but for the most part everything goes in as-is.

        dry age/salt all your meat
        pickle all your veggies
        controlled ferment the rest of it

        if you're serious then you'll have a cellar to keep temps below average, filled with salted wild game and shelves of mason jars brining onions garlic and whatever else grows itself with minimal effort, you shouldnt be allocating a high amount of effort to veggies or farming when there's 4 legged calorie sacks running around. grow medicinal herbs for medicinal herb purposes, otherwise plant the kind of veggies that don't need you to pay attention to them.
        beekeeping and cultivating ideal grow conditions for edible and medicinal mushrooms should be a high priority
        Collecting goats and chickens should be a high priority

        Highest tech thing you "need" is guns, mason jars, glass jugs for proper scale fermentation, as much salt as you can store, and otherwise good tools, textiles, rope, containers in redundant numbers

        I appreciate your confidence in me, but I'm not planning on going THAT off grid lol. It's a tinyhouse on wheels that'll l be solar powered with self-contained plumbing, wood/electric heating, etc. I plan to do supply runs in my truck as infrequently as possible to the nearest town for food/water. I estimate I can go 1-2 months before running out of water depending on how much rain I can collect and store without it freezing.

        One day I'd like to be self-sufficient, but since Im limited to 200sqft and the bed of my truck, It's a struggle to grow enough veggies or store meat from anything more than small game.

      pectus excavatum is inward curving of the ribs. Carinatum is the outward version. It kinda just happens when you grow up and has no real causes. I wouldn’t say it’s too common, but there are for sure plenty of people with it, one of them being myself. Depending on the severity, you might wanna get it check as ask a doctor if your organs have enough space, but that’s only for really severe cases. Most people with it don’t have any health issues, so if you feel ok then you’re all good.

        It's not really severe like that.
        I probably shouldn't have used 'concave' it's more flat. On my bro it looks fine because both sides are even and make his ribs look squared but me it looks weird because it's only on one side.
        On both of us it's not that high up either, it's on either side of the plexus.

    Can I stay lean (~12%bf) year-round and still make gains and do well in the gym? I realised that being lean makes me feel a lot better than being at my normal 15%bf but I want gains as well

      Since this board has a lot of good looking anons, some of you might know how to use your looks to get into modeling/acting. Would appreciate help on that here

      [...]

      Tried that and probably not. Try it and if you're not making progress at all, bulk.

      https://i.imgur.com/cGFCy3H.png

      Please somebody rate this beginner routine,give advice. I have access to a fitness park outside with bars and shit so i could utilize other exercises as well. Therefore i feel there are improvements that could be made but i'm not sure what.Moreover later on i don't know how should the progression look like. Will i need to just exchange these to something else? How would that look like?
      I don't want to split up the workout plan into the usual PPL yet as i want to focus on getting a strong core first and foremost.

      Two things, first off, most of us have no idea what the exercises you mentioned are supposed to be, we've never heard of them and they could be referring to multiple things. Mind explaining what KTE, Swimmer, Bridge Raise, Hinges, Toe Squats and Arch Ups are? That aside, you're way too focused on core work. Core work should be done once the main things are out of the way. Stop falling for the normie meme and prioritizing abs. There's a dozen other muscles that are more important in terms of aesthetics. Also, what equipment do you have there?

    I have severe knee damage from a 15 year old injury that was never rehabbed properly and a herniated gastrocnemius muscle. This has led to an extreme strength asymmetry as I had to get on with my life and just strengthened my dominant left side further to cope with the issues on the right. The right leg has continued to deteriorate though, to the point that now going down stairs is causing problems and I pretty much can't train any symmetrical lifts/right side. Surgery is not advised on the hernia as (and please don't quote directly, I'm not a surgeon) something to do with the muscular sheath isn't strong/reliable enough to stitch back after reseating the muscle (medical advice has been to stick to light physical action for the next 50 years and start getting used to a cane in about the next decade, and hope that surgical intervention improves in that time).
    Retard question is as follows. Are there any training or exercise methods that I can do to mitigate the decline of use in my right leg? The exercises would have to be extremely low impact, (as the hernia just fucking slips on no notice, it has happened during fucking for fuck's sake) but if there is any way I can get some strength back in the lower leg it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not looking to win a comp or anything, I just want to be able to walk down steps like a 30 year old and not a 60 year old like I currently have to, and be limited in what I can lift by what I can lift and not what my left side can lift.

      are things like body weight calf raises out of the question? What about the ones where you weight your upper foot/toes and lift up that way, called tib lifts I think?

        Anonymous

        I already do calf raises, they have twice caused the hernia to snap badly when I pushed myself (pushing yourself on bodyweight sounds gay as fuck but I can do single leg raises on the left leg, but raises on both legs with equal loading can cause the right to go) so I am a bit concerned going back to them. Fuck, it sounds gay as fuck to type out that fucking calf raises can injure the leg, but yeah, that should show the gravity of the problem.
        I think what you are talking about is tib raises? I used to do those when I was rehabbing the knee, I might pick them up again, had forgotten about them. Can't hurt aye?
        Thank you for the honest answer anon, I guess I should stop looking for a miracle exercise and instead find some way to do calf raises without aggravating it worse. Shit just fucking sucks, I don't lack strength overall because I've spent years just putting all the weight onto the left, but the right is now feeling frighteningly close to being too far gone, I don't want it to slip beyond because I fear obesity and laziness lie that way.

          Yeah it sounds rough as hell man good luck with everything. I would definitely try the tib raises again I've started doing some with dumbells on my feet and I'm thinking of making a little weight holder because it's not exactly comfortable. It does seem like it would help. I would just look up the various muscles of the lower leg and find lifts that are comfortable for you. May be able to strengthen whatever it is that easily fails over time. I know it's probably very hard to find desire to do them because progress is slow and you feel so weak, but it is what it is and you may be able to vastly improve it with time. If that fails maybe get like a cool cane sword or something lol.

            Thanks anon. The depression about it isn't as low as it has been in the past (at the lowest point I considered cutting circulation long enough to guarantee an amputation was the only medical solution, so that I could start from scratch as a para athlete and get full support that way) but I'm in a much better place now. My brain is just petrified of going the way my dad did, he was an extremely active person despite malformed disks in his lower back, ended up with a long injury list that got him off his feet and then he fell into extreme obesity because what motivation is there when you can't do anything active anymore without extreme pain? He lost the weight later in his life (well, some of it, is still in the highly overweight category but no longer morbidly obese) but it really is a future I fear and want to avoid.
            I've already resigned myself to the reality that I will probably be on the cane within a decade, but I don't want to be weak on the cane, I want to be strong on it. I don't want to be on the cane to get by, I want to be on the cane to thrive. I'm not going to let it beat me, I am going to redouble my efforts to find solutions. I guess if the doctors don't have a fix, the physios don't have a fix and the PTs just made things worse by not even thinking there was a need for a fix (I had one look at the ~2 inch bulge of a just snapped out muscle and say "whoa bro that is some real pump you got going there") then I will just have to become the fix myself.

      unless you are a full time alcoholic, not hard at all. i'd advise to avoid going to parties or social events for a while that'll probably lead to 'just to take a couple and that's it'. it really depends on how serious are you about it
      >weed
      same as alcohol, but harder if you are a manchild. again, it depends how seroous are you trying to quit, and in some degrees, the reasons (is it making you too lazy? are you smoking as an escapism mechanism? etc)

Im already doing bench and ohp in the 6-10 rep range anyways and squat variation in the 4-8 rep range.

    I realise that old IST is dead and it's just zoomers here now, but still better than going to Plebbit.

    How does this routine look for someone wanting to get back into lifting? Before the plandemic I was hitting a 3pl8 bench for reps but stopped working out over the past 3 years, got married and had a kid. Want to get back into lifting but don't have the time to go to a gym as we're rural but I've got a cage, barbell and various plates.

    I've used the barbell only workout from "MuscleAndFitness" and then thrown in a CrossFit workout on "rest" days with no weight. Leg Day on Saturday seems a bit lacking though there's not much I can do with what I've get. Up the sets or just add in something like lunges?

    Ideally want to follow the routine for maybe 12 weeks until I'm back to speed again and get some more equipment in. Not risking heavy DLs as I've injured myself in the past.

          carrot
          peas
          tomato
          potato
          sweet potato
          spinach
          banana
          rice
          pasta
          eggs
          fish
          milk with your shakes if you aren't already

          variety is important. a pound of peas sounds ridiculous.

    What does it mean when I progress with my lifts (being able to lift more) but don't get more muscular?

      Two things: your muscles might be getting denser instead of larger, or you are training your nerves to function better without more muscle mass. Nerves are what let you make your muscles contract more quickly and evenly.

          Read the sticky. The quantity of reps determine if you are training strength (3 to 8) or hypertrophy (9 to 16).

            But I do this! I never go for a higher weight if I can't do 3 sets with 15 reps each.

      how long have you been lifting? visual results can take up to 6 months to show. if you've got a high bf% its not going to help either.

    When I deadlift my recovery time has gone to shit. I am sore for over a week. For example, I do a 5 x 5 deadlift at 405 and 3 x days I could barely lift 365 for 5 x 5. I tried just doing more hinge movements at lower weight, but if I try to do deadlifts 3 x a week I just can't.

    Is it because I am not eating enough? I'm still improving. I just lose so much strength and don't recover until over a week after deadlifts.

        okay, would you say it is incurable? today I've started doing some stretches, sleeping on the floor, as well as watching my posture. would i ever be able to revert back to healthy posture? which of the curvatures is worse?

          everything can be fixed. lift weights, stretch, remind yourself to stand up straight every time you stand. it takes time to correct issues that have been present for years so just be patient and consistent. eventually perfect posture will become normal and you won't even have to think about it.

            whoa, thats awesome to hear! you've made my day, I've been so upset about tue possibility of irreversible damage.
            i went to a physio and she recommended me some stretches which i do everyday. youtube and google overwhelm me with the huge variety of back stretches for kyphoscoliosis, so much so that i don't know what to choose. are there any stretches you would recommend?

            im also planning on doing Calisthenics because i love pullups, chin ups, dips and push ups

                priceless advice, thank you!
                is it true that i must stay away from exercises like hanging knee raises? because they tighten the hip flexors more? i might have anterior pelvic tilt which is caused by weak abs and glutes and tight hip flexors.

                I don't see how doing hanging leg raises would cause any problems. do them if you'd like.

    My right shoulder is hurting, it's not a very strong or sharp pain, and I mostly feel it when I move my arm in certain positions, specially when I move move my elbows backwards (like in a push up).
    It's not swollen and I can't feel anything by touch either, I'm no expert but I think it's more of a muscular pain (deltoid) rather than a joint problem.
    I've done push ups, pike push ups and pull ups lately, the most likely culprit is the pike push ups, I didn't have any accident, my workout went out normally and I started feeling the pain a day o two later.
    Any day what could it be? I'm only putting ice on my shoulder for now

      Pike pushups are probably what's done it. I tweaked my shoulder once doing them and I felt something like this for a week.

        what did you do about it? the pain is bearable and my range of motion is normal but I should probably rest for a few days or a week
        I'm also dead hanging a bit here and there since I heard it's good for the shoulders but I don't think is doing much for this particular pain

        Between dips and those variations of push ups, I'm starting to think that dips aren't as good as people make it out to be if it has a high injury rate.

      no your body continues to lose weight eating itself from the inside and you eventually turn into a black hole consuming the earth.

      Why would you continue to lose weight forever?
      the answer is no.

        I guess I should have stipulated whilst persevering most muscle mass, obviously you would get to a point where it was your bmr. I’ve just been playing around with calorie counters and found a diet that has 100% micro and 200g protein for only 1500 calories and wondered if it would work
