    I think it depends on your genetics. I have a very small frame for being 6'2. I'm under sized for sure. Gaining body weight over 205 doesn't increase my lifts much. A little bit, yes. But I get...

    Flexible dieting isn't really different than what is posted in that article. Layne is a supporter of flexible dieting. It isn't a free for all. The food sources he discusses are really just...

    Wow, that's a big drop. I've never had a drop that big in a week, even if I were to take carbs to zero. Everyone responds so differently to things, which makes this sport so interesting... and...

    I just saw this thread and the fact that you were a swimmer caught my eye. I was a swimmer through college as well, then converted to bodybuilding. I thought I was the only one around here with that...

    That happened to me during prep as well. As Dean stated, hormonal most likely. Layne Norton did a podcast with a natural bidybuilder/science guy who took his bloodwork before contest prep, during...

    Not sure if serious... If you are not trolling and 100% serious, I would strongly suggest that you seek counseling as soon as humanly possible. You most likely have a psychiatric disorder that...

    Talk with your doctor.

    Do a quick Google search and add the word "athlete" or "bodybuilding". You'll see a lot of discussions on this. It seems to be a common issue among strength training people....

    2500 seems low. I am just over 200 lbs and I need to eat around 3000-3200 just to maintain my weight.

    2500 cals is what I eat when I'm cutting about a pound a week.

    If you are even in a slight...

    I'd strongly recommend the protocols that Kiefer suggests, ala Carbnite or Carb Backloading. I've had really good luck with both. Carbnite for cutting, Backloading for gaining phases.
