Damn, man. That sounds awesome.
I tried to get my mum into weightlifting once but she whined about how heavy it was the entire time, now she goes to fitness classes which teach dangerous movements using tiny weights for a million reps.

Legit, the first thing I learned from progressing beyond average level in lifting and in my body was that people hate those who can do what they want to but can't.
The amount of flak I get from everyone is unbelievable. My brothers call me gay because now I have muscle, my mom tells me how ineffective my diet is (despite being around 10% bf while she struggles with fad diets) and my dad always claims that weight training doesn't work and is dangerous, despite the fact I am the only one he can trust to lift his motorcycle out of the garage each winter precisely because i'm strong as fuck.
But eh. I'm not really bothered. I let people talk their shit because in the end it doesn't change what I am, and all that making offhand comments achieves is revealing that person as jealous and immature.
> drinking muscle milk

"I dont want you drinking that stuff! You're different when you're ON that stuff!"
Had to shake my head and just walk away at her idiocy.

In reference to a family friend who was really into lifting weights and was ripped as fuck, feels bad man. Pretty sure she only stopped because of people constantly harassing her too.
I would, I have enough money and everything but I don't think I'm responsible enough to care for another living being, I wouldn't want to adopt a dog if I couldn't give it a great life

After about 2 days of nonstop huffing and wheezing they start to get on your nerves desu. Just a heads up if you get stressed easy these guys might just push you over the edge sometimes

Never living with my nan again.
I wish I had a supportive mother.
She is obese and doesn't know much about nutrition but gets really mad if I don't eat everything she makes.
She is always telling me that I am starving myself and that I am not healthy.
I am 6'4 and 220lbs.
I lost about 50lbs since I moved out 1 year ago and I feel better than ever.
I am still cutting but it's really hard if I am visiting my parents.
My mother just won't stop yelling if I don't eat at least as much as my father. He has a hard, physical really demanding job and even he has put on weight lately.
>escaped my mother and finally hit normal weight
>my gf (6 years relationship) told me that she likes me more chubby
>>my gf (6 years relationship) told me that she likes me more chubby
This is a difficult one, most of the virgin autists will spout some shit saying she is jealous or wants to bring you down. As you know, you get comfortable after a certain amount of time in a relationship, but I'm sure she'll respect you if you inform her you care about your health. Say you can't risk the health issues because she likes a bit of chub.
>how much bigger do you want to get?! you're going to strain yourself
>you're not taking steroids, are you?
>oh no you're working out too hard
Fucking barely 2pl8ing squat for reps, MOM, THANKS FOR RUINING MY LIFE
She had good intentions, but if they really weren't compatible with your progress, you did good anon.
Your family sounds nice
Well, I posted this once before and
>she is jealous
>wants to bring you down
was exactly the reaction I got.
Thank you for your reasonable reply, anon.
I think I will bring up my health if we talk about this subject again.
Yeah, a lot of guys on /fit/ think all women secretly want and prefer only one body type: big muscular dudes (which coincidentally happens to be the one that men admire most). It's projecting. Tons of women like muscular men, but there are also lots of women who genuinely prefer chubbier men. Just like there are men who genuinely prefer chubbier women, and aren't just settling for it.
That's not to say that she isn't just trying to hold you back, she could be, but it's definitely not impossible that she does prefer you chubby. Either way, just talk to her about it and tell her that's not how you want to look, and it's not healthy. You should be trying to please yourself first and foremost, not your partner. If she cannot deal with you having a body type that isn't what she prefers, then she is shallow and only in the relationship for looks anyways.
I really trust her.
So I am sure that she is honest about liking chubbiness.
She isn't trying to hold me back. She told me how she feels and it's up to me what I do with this knowlegde.
I doubt that she would leave me if I had abs (that sounds strange, doesn't it?)
She just told me what she prefers.
That is sometimes an issue. She loves pizza and wants to share.
But I am worse. I don't like very thin women and so I often bring her sweets even though she tries to lose weight. I feel bad for this.
> EXCUSE ME! My son also wants to lift weights and he told me you guys have been hogging the rack this entire time. We need to get going soon so if you could share with the rest of us that would be great
I knew signing up for the family pack was a mistake just to save 30$ a month. As stupid as it sounds though she is the person always pushing me to better myself and always making sure I keep up with my gains. Thanks Mommy
>please stop lifting weights anon you're big enough, now you just have bigorexia
>why arent you eating anything anon, youre literally starving yourself. Please eat something you're anorexic
THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY FUCKING SENSE
mom was a dancer for many years, even went to college for it (lol?) and was a huge cardio bunny in 80's, but has since lost her drive due to years at a dead end job. doesn't not support my heavy lifting, but still gives me the "just be careful", mom worry, which is fine.
dad is back into lifting is is very encouraging to me lifts. was a state champion wrestler his senior year of HS for his weight class, so he knows his shit.
parents that encourage fit behavior are the best.
sadly my gf has expressed that she is afraid that I get get too many gainz, she'll start to feel really inadequate, and she's already insecure as it is.
>mfw this is exactly what I want to happen so she'll hit the gym. If she lost some of her fat and just did simple compounds, she'd literally look like pic related.
>Mirin chick on party balcony
>Point towards the ground and say that's a long way down
>She gets scared and trips over the railing breaking her neck and dying with her pussy pointed towards the sky screaming "My clit is the clit that will pierce the heavens."
This, my girlfriend is constantly worried I'm going to leave her, now that im starting my cutting phase.
>why don't you want this delicious piece of chocolate cake I made? Are you depressed? Do you suffer from mental anorexia? Man has to eat, you need to grow (Both my parents are ~180cm and I have 190cm, don't know where the fuck she think I will grow to.).
Had car problems so I took a bus for like 6 months and walked everywhere.
>"Why bother going to the gym? Walking gives you enough exercise."
Mom is heavy, fed us crap food all growing up, was fat as a kid.
>"Its genetics, anon, nobody in our family is thin."

>Tells me that she found my 'steroids' and thrown them al out
>mfw she threw away all of my whey, creatine, zma, d vitiamins, beta alenine etc.
she thought they were roids
i wasn't mad just and didnt lose my shit, just surprized that she went through all my stuff
she ended up leaving me some cash for new supps after I explained what thta stuff was.
My mother wouldn't let me sign up for a gym (I was underage at the time, but couldve paid for it. She needed to cosign as I was a minor.)
>Anon, your father was in the military. You just need to do pushups and sit ups to get muscles.
>mom thought pic related had a lot of protein
>anon, don't take creatine your balls will shrink it's steroids
>don't increase weight just increase the intensity of your workout
>eating fat will make you fat
>you don't need to work out anyway I think you're very handsome
>mfw there's actually people in this world who don't know that carbs and only carbs can be stored as fat
Nigga my relatives used to do that all of the time ... When I used to live with my dad, my grandmother and aunt would pop by when no one is home to clean as a surprise, which of course is extremely thoughtful but damn they ALWAYS threw my shit out: my tea, food, my shake cups, even some nostalgic stuff that I was holding on to. Shit made me so mad and whenever I told them not to throw my shit away they just go
>"but we can't tell what's garbage or not around here!"
fucking don't come over to clean then gotdamnigga
Started lifting. Small noob gains only, mom asks if I'm using steroids. Mfw.

I actually managed to lose weight while i was there just because I barely ate fucking anything. Still got pretty close to sperging out though.

still better than wanting to fuck your mon, AND being so stupid that r9k can influence you.
sugary drinks and isotonic drinks have not been proven to be better at hydrating than straight water
An by this I mean that studies show that water retention and uptake is the same regardless of what you mix in
Unless you're seriously ugly it probably is the truth, from her perspective anyway. There's chemicals in your brain that go off when you give birth that make you believe your child is the most beautiful child of all. It doesn't mean your mom gets horny for you though, that only happens in hentai.
bf (n-no homo) is always on me about how "those weights are driving you crazy"
it has gotten to the point where i literally called him a "gains goblin" and shoo'd him out of the room.
This is my dad btw
>All that baby juice isn't good for you
>Are you lacking self confidence or something?
>All these bodybuilders aren't right in the head. Whenever I see them talk it's like there's something wrong with them.
>'Oh I'm Mr. Muscle look at me' - That's him mocking me
I mean, I understand, as he was in the military for 9 years, and he says I shouldn't be lifting weights to get fit, but I should just sprint up and down steep hills, to increase stamina, endurance, and burn fat. Wiry, is what he says is most useful in a combat situation.
Well there's truth to that. Endurance is what the military needs, not so much outright strength. You need to be able to hump a fuckload of gear and ammo long distances. Most of the actual fighting is hide behind cover on this hill, shoot at specks on that other hill to keep them occupied, and call air support to schwack them.
I'm in the army reserves, and I've done the basic training, which includes a 6 mile TAB in 90 minutes full kit, carrying 25kg including the rifle. I'm trying to do both, endurance and strength.
>But it's coconut oil anon, that means it's healthy
It comes from new wave yoga hippies who don't understand how food works
They eat nothing but 400 cal of quinoa and kale a day and argue that because they're skinny, everything they eat is good for them.
Yeah, my nan is lovely, but she likes to feed me. She isn't obese or anything, but it just seems to be a nan thing. I still visit her every weekend (make sure not to eat anything though).
You're playing into his military experience and expectations here. What you need to do is tell him that you want to focus on strength training and conditioning. And state legitimate reasons. For example, mention that having a stronger foundation of muscles and strength carry over into your later years so you're less prone to injury when doing any day to day chores that involve lifting things. Try to convince him of the benefits of weight training, and that he would somehow benefit from getting into it.
Basically, if you can present the benefits of lifting to him while being calm and confident at the same time, the same way you'd explain addition and subraction to a kid, he'd shut up. Unless he's a fool and is stubborn. I'm that case don't bother.
As annoying as my mom sometimes is I'll never take her for granted. She lets ne eat and live here for free until Im done with Uni.
Once I graduate and get a steady career I'll have her move in with me when she retires.
That being said
>ask mom to buy me whey
>"anon, I will not allow steroids in this house or in the body god gave you!"
Since when is coconut healthy?
I mean, I wouldn't get upset at them for having some less healthy stuff that tastes good since the majority of what they eat is healthy and especially just a tablespoon is not going to cause any harm but I just don't understand what made anyone think that.
He was an infantard, wasn't he?
He isn't exactly wrong, but tell him you're not infantry, you want to be an Engineer.
Engineer bod is the best bod.
Lift heavy things, build heavy things, move heavy things, take heavy things apart with explosives.
Then go get drunk.
I started doing starting strength, and that combined with PRT, 5x a week runs, and of course rucking (light Infantry). Got fucking beastly in about two years with a pretty crappy diet and getting practically blackout drunk 2+ nights a week. Not to mention starvation mode during mob & deployment.
Who knows man. If they encorporate it into a fat deficient diet I don't have a problem.
My problem is that my gf definitely doesn't need an extra tablespoon of fat a day, given her current diet. Somehow, university has actually made her lazier and despite being the one who originally got me into eating right, she herself no longer holds herself to the same standard.
Bulldogs are superior, they're like pugs, but bigger and don't give a shit about anything other than your praise. I've seen my British bulldog get so fucking excited to see me that it jumped and accidentally faceplanted a wall. It wasn't even phased by this... the pain tolerance on those fuckers is so damn high. I've even had a kid ride it like a horse around my house, once again, my literal bitch didn't give a shit. The funniest part is that they're one of the few breeds of dogs that actually seem to know their strength, whenever the fuckers yawn and you see their fucking teeth, you're happy that they're on your fucking side. I pity the fool who breaks into my house, as soon as my dog stars giving a shit about him, someone's gonna lose a few limbs.
Much better than your shitty communist dog.
My mum's pretty based to be honest. Every time I go home she makes sure to stock the fridge with heaps of chicken, broccoli and greek yogurt and buys steel cut oats, sweet potatoes, avocados and bananas for me. She doesn't even care that every weekend I go home probably costs her like $150 in food. My younger brother was really into lifting a few years back so I guess she just knows the deal.
Dad's pretty cool too, he's always tell me how broad I look. But he's also always trying to get me to do this P90X program which he said he used to get really broad when he was my age.
No, but you fail to uptake electrolytes properly without at least a small amount of sugar.
The small intestine uses sodium-glucose co-transporter proteins to absorb simple sugars. Normal secretions into the small intestine contain a lot of sodium to absorb simple sugars eaten directly or produced from digestion of starches.
The reverse is true. If you want to absorb sodium from an electrolyte drink, you need sugar present. Not a lot. Having eaten some carbs recently is sufficient, but a sugar-free poweraid on an empty stomach wouldn't work. Gatorade doesn't even make a sugarfree version because they know it's useless. The low-sugar one is probably an appropriate amount of sugar though despite being a small fraction of the normal product.
People think coconut oil is healthy because it contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs)
MCTs are transported through the body differently than longer chain fats. They do not require bile to digest and do not raise LDL cholesterol. They are a fairly biologically inert source of calories and some studies (http://www.nature.com/ijo/journal/v27/n12/full/0802467a.html) show that they may have an influence on thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
However, these studies are when almost all of the fat in a diet is replaced by MCTs. Not a teaspoon of coconut oil before deep fried chili dogs.
Coconut oil is only about 20% MCTs (caprylic and caproic triglycerides) It is 40-50% lauric acid triglyceride. Lauric is considered an medium chain fatty acid on paper, but it does increase cholesterol somewhat and is thus on the fence between MCTs and long chain fatty acids.
So yes. Replacing all fat in your diet with MCT oil (which can be purchased and is only caprylic/capric triglyceride) might help you lose slightly more weight, lower cholesterol or help you get nutrition if you're sickly, but coconut oil ain't gonna do it.
>anon don't eat eggs they're full of cholesterol and your uncle Johnny died of a heart attack! It must run in the family!
Uncle Johnny was an alcoholic chain smoker who lived off chippies and cold meat sandwiches
>Eat protein bars and oats early on in the day
>reach about 1400 calories before im good for the day.
Omg you need to eat! At least eat some REAL food. You NEED to eat dinner.

Change your locks you fucking retards!
I love my mom but shes so clueless about nutrition its no wonder I was a fat kid

Fuck thats bad.
I remember when I tried to fuck my mom about 7 years ago. Luckily I wasn't as autistic as that guy and made sure the situation could always be explained away
>Dad not home due to business trip
>Chinese cartoons taught me this is the perfect time

>hug mom from behind in bed
>Raging erection between her cheeks
>rub by dick against her and get it under her shit (she slept with only a long shirt on)
nothing really happened after that and I kind of gave up on fucking her after some other situations didnt work either
>I tried to fuck my mom
>luckily i wasn't autistic
>I tried to fuck my mom
>luckily I wasn't autistic
Literally not my fault if I did
She look extremely young, in school all my classmates thought she was my sister, then one day when they talked about her I informed them im an only child, and no one believed me. Then they wanted to know how young she was when she had me (she was 27 when she had me).
As an european, i never understood that kind of shame you americans have in front of your family.
I mean, we are not going naked on the streets, you know, we have modesty.
But you came out from her vagina, your dick has been inside her. I think she knows whats up
These days I boil all my eggs, rice, and veggies. I use a crockpot for beans/seeds and cook chicken in the oven. About the only thing I use a stove top for is the occasional beef strips or chicken filets and even then I could probably just use my George foreman.
