    I've been having a meal replacement shake and some peanut butter for a while now and was thinking of switching to food for a change. What do you think would be better, egg whites and a healthy fat source (flax or peanuts) or just a good old steak. My current goals are to pack on muscle w/out getting to fat. 1-2 lbs a month is fine with me if they are quality pounds. Any suggestions?

    Hey Latman, hows it going?
    I usually eat a can of tuna before going to bed.
    Egg whites sounds like a really good idea, though.
    I also drink a protein shake in the middle of the night.
    Hope that helps.

    By the way, Latman - do you have a sidekick and whats your superpower? LOL

    Hey, Hulk - I know you're a smartass!


    I'm not trying to be one, but should't you be taking in more carbs after working out?

    I eat at least 125carbs after working out.

    Well, its used to be just water, but my buddy cemm has informed me that due to my advanced age, I should include glut. So, water and glutamine.

    I usually include tuna, milk, and cottage cheese. One thing to remember is that you would want a slow absorbing protein at night to give your muscles sort of a trickle effect of nutrients. Whey protien goes through you too quick, thats why i stick to something with more casein.

    I've also seen a study where people were trying to lose bf and gain muscle, and they were taking either whey or casein as part of the program. Casein came out on top as far as most bodyfat lost and most muscle gained between the groups. Just something to think about.

    I'm full of wierd knowledge: I'm trying to lose bodyfat and anything that gives me the slightest edge helps. Aspirin is safe to take every day and since it raises core body temperature, it puts your body in a better state to shed fat. It's like a safe, super weak clenbuterol.

    Gino: it seems like you have been dieting for ages now!

    When are you gonna post some pics? From the torso pics you posted on MM.com i think i have a similar build and frame to you.(how tall are you?)

    What if you get a headache or something, wouldn't your body not be responsive to the asprin you take to stop it, cause it's used to it?
