    Haha thank you. I'm not sure if there is a young age group on this site nor are there power lifters like myself. I read a lot of posts and people are so worried about carbs and what not. Fact is carbs nor fat make you fat. You over eating and exceeding what your body needs a day to maintain its weight will make you gain weight.

    I'm eating 150g of carbs a day. I can't imagine how some people That i read about that are eating little, to almost no carbs a day. I would have no energy. Seeing that carbs are basically used as fuel.

    Yeah, I started Crossfit and eat more carbs now. In that 100-150 range and have better energy.

    I think a lot of people here are older and sedentary and the VLC thing works well for them. It also helps some people with medical issues and things like insulin resistance. And well, most Americans eat way too many carbs. I bet if you spoke to any medical professional, they'd call you low carb and be worried.

    I do think a lot of people mistake the water gain from going from VLC to that 100-150 with fat gain. I gained about 4lbs when I doubled my carbs, but I feel/look leaner (relative to myself).

    But yeah, your transformation is amazing and indicative of what just putting forth a consistent, well thought out program will get you. It sounds pretty straightforward. Are you pretty happy where you are at now or are you looking to improve even more?

    Wow, you're like my neighbor. I'm in the NW Burbs, IL. I'd go see you compete if you want a little more of a fan club!
    And as funny as Magnolia is, she's right. You look amazing (hot) and your wife is a lucky gal as well as your son having an awesome role model. Good on ya!

    Wow, you went from being a boy to being a man! Congratulations, and great work. I'm so glad you found in your son that motivation to change. And a hello from one of the under-30's on here! I think there are a few of us lurking about
