Your protein shake is a thousand calories and your workout was mostly texting. That's why you look like that.
(Its funny how you can take a couple days "off", feel terrible about it, go in to work and have someone ask you if you've lost weight. Had to bust Ass today in the gym. And double meals. Its absolutely crazy to me how difficult it is to gain weight. I've struggled my entire life with it. Now don't @ me with your "oh you're so selfish" bullshit. This is my choice and my lifestyle. Take care of your body because those years creep up on you, and next thing you know, you're 35 or 40 and you're fighting for your life to keep cholesterol down or blood pressure under control. My thought is, a little sacrifice here and there pays off dividends in the long run. And its ok to feel good about living this way. Power to all you grinding it out like me. Love the struggle.)
Protein waffle! One of my favorite night time snacks! Just pick your favorite Sustained assimilating protein shake(these proteins will usually be your blended proteins and are slow digesting which is optimal for meal replacements). Hexapro by allmax is one of my favorites so now once you got your protein all you need is almond milk, egg white, and a little bit of your favorite pancake mix! Here's the exact measurements I use:
1.) One scoop of your favorite protein
2.) 35g Kodiak Cakes Waffle Mix
3.) 65g Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
4.) 46g Liquid Egg Whites
5.) Enjoy with Sugar Free Syrup!!!! Calories: 360
Total Sugar: 7g
Let me know some of your favorite recipes!
Holy Matrimony it was a good Day to Wed.
Congrats Tara and Tim🍾🕊🎉
Once a fat kid always a fat kid!! I (like most) love sweets and ice cream but they don't help with progress! I always take a shake before bed and turn it into protein ice cream to keep me from the real stuff! Plus I want to grow while I sleep. The real self control comes to only using 1 TBSP of peanut butter! #s2faction#innerfatty#dominateyourlife#whateverittakes#justsaynotocupcakes
▪️Stress ▪️ Public enemy numero uno!
▪️Cortisol is released during any "Fight or Flight" scenario --This could be good stress [Eustress] like exercise or a good pressure or bad stress [Distress]. Both produce Cortisol, however Eustress can help with "Getting stuff done" you're more alert, focused and attentive as opposed to the inversely anxiety ridden, floating and no control distress fashion!
Chronic stress can lead to a predisposition for mental illness, depression, ❤️ issues, lower life expectancy and FAT GAIN 😝
Above are some different Cortisol reducers that will calm, relax, and put the brakes on unyielding stress, as well as reducing the Cortisol fed stubborn fat which can be any where your genetics wants to put it [Mine is in my belly!]
GABA- the most inhibitory neurotransmitter which gently calms the mind and slows down excess impulses!
▪️5-HTP - serotonin- another neurotransmitter which promotes a sense of calmness and happy mood!
▪️Valerian Root- a plant based ingredient great for naturally reducing anxiety or the dreadful mind wander!
▪️Magnesium- also another inhibitory neurotransmitter which blocks calcium and glutamate which excite the nervous system [AKA Anxiety!] and regulates the stimulus response! ▪️▪️
This area of supplementation is one of the best ways to maximize your recovery state--SLEEP!
Check it out and catch you some Z's while preventing unwanted stored stress fat and leaving your refreshed the next day!
Let me know what you guys think when you give any of the ingredient or products a shot! ▪️▪️▪️
I've been using C-21 as of late since I've been cutting and keeping lean after! Plus digestive enzymes to pummel your last meal and store it properly!

Great Saturday friends.
Doing what I can do get my work in. Rode longer today and walked a bit at Six Flags.
I'll admit I ate pretty bad but kept my calories where they needed to be. I've got health foods in the freezer 🤙
Lost 5 lbs this week and excited to keep going. I know some was water weight but it's nice to go in the right direction after too long staying stagnant.
Now don't get me wrong, pre-workout supplements like on the right are great and all, but have you ever thought about the pre-workout on the left? Sure it may not taste as great, feel as good, or make ya tingle all over, but it's definitely going to have you seeing greater results.
No I'm not saying you have to eat chicken and rice before every workout. But I always try to get in a good source of protein and carbs.. amounts will very with goal, weight, gender etc. to effectively fuel your body to workout harder and and more intense, which usually means better results!💁🏼♂️ Examples👇🏼
Protein: Chicken, turkey breast, Greek yogurt, tuna, protein shake etc.
Carbs: Rice, potato, apple, banana, strawberries etc.
Amount wise, I normally shoot anywhere between 30-50 grams carbs, 20-30 grams protein. Depending on the situation and timing.
Timing wise, you can adjust this as you wish, I normally shoot for an hour before, but if it's any closer try to make it more of a simpler source of carb and fast digesting protein. Longer, it can be more complex.
Bottom line, exercising on an empty stomach can potentially lead to the breakdown of muscle tissue. Without food to fuel your workout, muscle tissue is instead converted into glucose to provide the energy you need, which isn’t ideal. Whether you’re trying to build muscle or drop body fat. This breakdown can negatively impact your metabolism.
If any of you have questions let me know! I wanna help!💪🏼 #s2faction#whateverittakes#dominateyourlife#supplementsuperstores 📸 @partyboy_1996
