Zach what do you think about this? Think Fat-Free Milk is Healthy? 6 Secrets You Don’t Know About Skim | Butter Believer I liked the idea of 1 percent milk but now I'm not sure.
1. They profit off me. Who cares, next!
2. Powdered milk is added to fat free, she didnt know if it was added to low fat. Its doubtful that it is.
3. Is talking about all CAFO milk in general. Buy organic, raw or whatever the best brand you can get your hands on. I would rather not drink milk then drink Kemps or some other shit brand.
4. Another strawman (i hate that term), shes saying that it has almost no nutritional value. Well guess what lady, protein and sugar are nutrients. Besides that, in one glass of 1% milk (100 calories) there is 30% (rda) calcium, b1 and phosphorus, 20% b12, 12% selenium, 10% potassium and a bunch of others in the under 10% range. Not to mention added vitamin A and D3.
5 and 6. Are both stupid because she assumes that since we drink low fat milk that we are avoiding fat and especially saturated fat all together. Since we are not, its another moot point.
Lastly dude, i go by how i feel. Too much fat completely bogs me down, i need to cut it somewhere since i eat a lot of cheese. Low fat milk is an easy way to get extra protein without tons of extra fat unlike most other sources (cheese, eggs, meat).
You're like a nutrition wizard man haha. Thanks, I was drinking the 1 percent milk exactly for the same reason - to keep fat low since I am eating a good amount of cheese. I just figured to double check since I really like a lot of what Emily (ButterBeliever girl) says, but was doubtful of this post.
Hi Journal, i have missed you.
All alone today and kinda feel like doing nothing, that will probably change shortly.
Most of the people who read this saw that picture i posted in the other thread, that is what im currently at. I havnt weighed myself or anything but id guess im at 185 or so. Maybe i will weight myself tomorrow. My main goal right now is to get 10%bf or under since i have never been there i dont think and im interested in how i would feel at the weight and if i could maintain it permanently.
Right now im eating a very low fat diet and it is working really well for leaning out. I also feel better on little fat and animal products. I have been toying with going vegetarian or vegan + milk which i think should be a vegan option because there is certainly ways of getting dairy without harming an animal, but whatever. Im really intrigued by it, its kind of hippy dippy which i seem to be heading in that direction more and more these days but i really do feel more alive the less animals i eat. Also meat is kinda just gross. Anyway, ill keep you posted if i decide to go for it.
Right now my diet is pretty generic, i drink a lot of juice, eat a lot of fruit and dairy, have a few animal products here and there and take a small amount of supps. I dont really deviate at all unless i feel like a pizza or occasionally ice cream.
I have also taken to doing a lot of bodyweight work whenever i have a spare moment. I think this will help me a lot in seeing the physique im going for. Havnt been to the gym in a week or so because its too damn hot and the beach has been perfect.
Heres a pic of a similar physique that im going for..
If i can get close i think i will officially hit guru status.
I'm interested in how you go about this without meat. Would dairy be the main protein source?
Yea, diary makes up most of my protein right now. I eat one meal a day currently of 30-50g animal protein, either eggs or meat. Also im getting 30-50g gelatin but i dont know how much longer i will keep that up. Honestly i think if carbs are high, the body does not need a ton of protein. Im certainly not going for a bodybuilders physique so im not trying to gain 20lbs of mass or anything.
" I do a ton of calisthenics during the day whenever im bored. Handstand work, planche work, pullups, pushups, pistols and ab stuff like planks, l sits and knees to elbows."
Zach, I'm trying to incorporate more body weight stuff like this. Pushups, pullups, planks etc I'm fine. But I have serious trouble doing handstand work, pistol squats, l sits , and I can't even see where to begin doing planche work. How do you go about these moves?
