    yeah, idk about the health thing. i think eating non-greasy, healthy food is the way to go, but it comes to a point.

    Sometimes people look at me funny when they find out I do roids or when I bring protein powder and bananas instead of beer and chips over to my friend's houses. I don't care, but I remember being a naysayer. I chalk it up to immaturity, but some people never mature.

    How you can eat that healthy and stay that ugly will be a medical mystery for the ages...

    I used to work on the peripheries of the health and fitness industry, so everyone in my work place ate healthily and it was the people that didn't that were considered freaks (there was one quite obese guy whose diet was admittedly shocking, but it must have been a million times harder for him being around all thin, muscular, healthy people who lived off tuna and protein shakes).

    Now I'm in a more normal workplace, my current coworkers are generally bemused by a) that I bring all my meals from home, every day; b) that there's so much of it (i eat about four times during my work day) for a 120lbs girl; and c) how healthy it is. I usually just say it's because I can't afford to buy lunch all the time and because I'm a vegetarian (the latter is actually technically accurate -- there's plenty of vego food around, and I can afford it, but I can't get enough protein from store-bought food). If you start talking about diet and health and whatever, people often take it as an attack on their shitty eating habits, even though I don't really give a rat's what they eat. OR you have to do the tiresome "Yeah, I should eat more healthily but it's just so hard and I don't ACTUALLY want to give up junk food blah blah now I'll ask for your advice but not take any of it on board and be whinging about the same things again in a few week's time" conversation.

    But I'm all for the 90% rule of good eating, and I like to share the 10% (heh, sometimes 15% or more) of meals that aren't so good for me with friends. So with the exception of the period leading up to a fight, sure I'll go to the pub with them and have a counter meal. Sure I'll have birthday cake. Sure I'll go out to dinner. Sure I'll have beer.

    I do see the flip-side of it, though. In my old super-healthy workplace, there were people who wouldn't even eat a slice of the cake we'd buy for them on their own birthday (likewise, one guy refused to participate in a friendly pick-up game of basketball because it would "mess with his training plan"). Unless you have an upcoming competition of some kind, it's also OK to relax a little. Some people do get a little too uptight about their diet and training and I get why that would annoy others. Eating is a social activity and it's ok to eat a bit of crap sometimes, too, especially if you already live a really healthy life otherwise.

    As to the original post, hell yeah. I was told just told a few hours ago that I would look *repulsive, with all those muscles*. ...And well, I am not especially muscular, just not (very) fat.

    Some people apparently just get insecure when they learn one does some kind of sport.

    Really, I think anyone that isn't a professional that tries to train like one while holding down a regular job is taking a hobby too seriously. That being said, if you're training in a combat sport while actively performing very heavy weight training, I think you owe it to yourself to be eating carbohydrates after lunch.

    I eat carbs at every meal. Even before bed. I still wake up starving.

    Emevas - Yeah I probably am taking it too seriously. I'd like to do some amateur bouts when I'm ready, but really alot of this is simply for aesthetics. The only reason my eating is restricted in terms of carbs and time of day is I'm trying to gain some weight while gaining as little fat as possible.

    I understand the methodolgy, my point is that if you're training that heavily, you're going to want an energy source. That method of weight gain is typically advised for people who are solely training for weights for the purposes of aestetics, not for athletes.

    Oh, the whole "organic" thing is marketing crap.

    I buy free range chickens and eggs and humanely raised meat cause it tastes better than the factory stuff, but the organic thing is just stupid.

    If I had the money though, I'd buy nothing but artisan raised and picked veggies and fruits. Again, for taste.
