i avoid hot and damp foods by not eating them.

hot like lamb etc.

I'm actually starting to take Protein too. Currently taking the Pro Complex Advanced 55g protein shake. Any opinions on this brand? is 55 g per serving way too much? I've gained about 4 lbs. And could someone help me out with an example of a sufficient 'lifting' session. Currently i'm doing pretty much all dumbbell weight training. (no access to barbels and bench set etc...and some machines too) will that be good enough for lifting? for cardio i do BJJ and my weekly Baji. I'm pretty sure my cardio is up to speed.Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.

Full body. Minimal redunancy. Safe cadence (CCC...control, concentration, constant tension) High intensity. Rest.
Dumbell bent row
Dumbell overhead press
Calf raises with dumbells
Crunches with dumbell on chest
A protein guru could help ya out with the rest.

I agree with Keinhaar.
Before you jump onto the supplement bandwagon, you should seriously consider more natural foods to get protein. You can buy pure egg-white in them mini-milk cartons. As well as just up your meat intake and bean intake. I used to take whey protein for about a year. I busted a lot of money when eggs and tuna would do.
I think protein supplements have their place. But only to break plateaus and the like. I am not a high performance athlete and most people on supplements are not either, merely victims of marketing and the promise of a quick fix. Bodybuilders and the like eat a lot to begin with and they still don't get "enough", hence the supplements. Unless you are eating a dozen chickens a day, just eat more. You get a lot of eggs for a tub of that stuff.Punches in bunches and kicks kicks kicks!

thaks everyone ,
the thing is i'm trying to get some specific advice here, so ill try to be more clear.
i actually want to be healthy and happy, so i dont want to be dehydrated or bloating.
i dont want to eat before bed, its just unhealthy.
what i eat mostly is fish, sometimes pork, sometimes chicken/turkey and some nuts.
i try to avoid overly hot or damp causing foods,so beef and chicken are minmal, eggs are mostly out, but egg whites are fine.
a lot of advice out there is 1 size fits all and kind of reductionist.
Who told you eating before bed is unhealthy? Thats false.
What do you have against whole eggs? Yolks won't kill you.
What are "damp causing" foods?
I recommend a protein called "GROW". It's available on a website called www.t-mag.com/
There's lots of useful diet and weight training advice as welll.
