    I must admit my bodybuilding endevours over the years have typically led me to eat a crap ton of food, because food + lifting = growth.

    Sorry to hear your story. But at least you can now see what...

    It was mostly clean but did include butter, lots and lots of eggs, and the odd McDonalds. I didn't track a single thing so the 5k is just an estimate (I guess some days it was more, some was less). I...

    With a photo, the angle always seems wrong, or the lighting bad, or I'm not flexing properly.

    With a mirror I can adjust these things and then at the right moment take a snapshot in my mind's eye.

    I had 10 years off.

    Been back at it for just over 2 years now. Not as strong as I used to be but I'm 12 years older, leaner and not eating 5k+ calories a day this time around.

    Good luck

    Same here. I reinjured my lower back doing barbell rows. I replaced them with dumbbell rows, seated cable rows and chest supported rows and haven't had issues since.

    I went from not being able to do a single pullup, to eventually being able to do 14. At that point I started doing them weighted.

    However during my bulk my weight went up and the number of...

    I think for me, whether cutting or bulking, it's a case of consuming enough volume of food that I can settle for one donut, rather than a whole pack.

    When I wasn't lifting, and my diet was lousy,...

    I'm not in love with it, but I eat it most days to bump my calories up. I usually heat it up in the microwave and then dip a banana in it

    I weigh everything raw. And I've always assumed that the nutritional information on labels, whether it's oats or chicken breast, are based on raw weights

    Yes agreed. I can only assume the OP is having some kind of sugar crash to feel that way. When I used to eat like chit I used to get really sleepy around 3-4pm in the afternoon. Since my diet...

    I eat the same number of calories every day, regardless of whether I'm resting or not.

    I read an article a while back that said if today you were resting, and tomorrow you were entering a...

    Not only this, but it was your son's birthday too! I don't even like cake, but I had a piece on my son's birthday.

    As for recovery, I'm not sure... I would just forget about it, drink some coffee...

    I dunno if I'd call 2 cupcakes, some biscuits and fruit crumble a binge (although perhaps not the healthiest choices). Unless they were big cupcakes and you ate the whole pack of biscuits?

    Lol, I have shown my before and after photos to a few people and they've commented that they'd be happy to look like the before photo.

    But... remember, we're all different. We start from different...

    This made me lol. I can relate, but isn't it just highly distracting?

    As for the laziness I think you have to have goals and aspirations to motivate you. Going to the gym is novel and fun for...

    Generally yes. Unless you spend a long, long time (and are lucky) gaining muscle without any fat, the chances are you will gain some fat when you gain muscle. So you go in cycles, gaining muscle...

    I eat 4 whole eggs most days.

    I like doing pyramid sets, because I feel like the initial sets serve as a kind of warm up for the increasingly heavier sets. In fact, the majority of people I see training use pyramid sets - I...
