for the dedicated the committed and the passionate!
We Reserve the Right to REFUSE Service to anyone.
Due to the fact that from time to time we have posters that don't seem to comprehend that they aren't PAYING us to TOLERATE poor behavior and a lack of reading comprehension.
Added 7/14/09 : It is expected that people will read the thread, specifically pages 1-12 at least - though a few gems can be found between pages 13-20something ~ Warning the next 10 pages after 12 are repetitive asking several people to read the thread.
But if you are still here you might start reading NOW.
Please be aware that we don't like wasting time with people who are not serious. If you are not serious ~ please do not waste our time because we will ignore you.
Next - You have to always state your situation first.
If you can't give us 3 months seriously then do not post - you are wasting my time and everyone else's time.
#1 Age and GENDER #2 You height and current weight #3 What is your experience? Sports? Cheerleading? Ever been trained? #4 Eating habits in the last week? #5 Your current exercise habits. #6 YOUR GOAL * please include a question as this is not a survey.
PLEASE WRITE YOUR QUESTIONS IN QUESTION FORMAT AND NOT IN PARAGRAPHS!
No reply means we can't take you seriously.
If you don't read this post first and you reply don't expect a response.
I think we will still chip in on the fitness thread but when time permits. * make sure you read the other posts as oftentimes you will pick up on certain themes or extra information that you didn't get in your own replies. also consider it as additional supplementary knowledge that could be applicable to your own situation.
* If you operate too low and you don't plan to get your calories in sometime every week or so with intense enough weight-training your metabolism will get smashed and break down. Also the quality of the foods you eat is important ~ if you rely on carbs for more then 50%
Warning : If you don't take the time to read this post and the links included along with reading through the thread and make a completely uninformed response with questions that have already been answered.. I will be irritated!! I prefer better detailed insightful posts so I can give you better answers!!!

For the most part I want people to understand yes there is room for cheat meals but those are like speed bumps that slow you down. But for the sake of mental sanity if you want to ask about them in relation to yourself sure go for it
