avi changes as i do
If you want my opinion, then 99% of a 'diet' is down to mindset....
My year is mapped out for me, I know when I need to be lean and when I can eat with freedom and bulk....
When I am approaching 'cut time' - I assess my physique and work out how many weeks I will need to be ripped... let's say for example 12 weeks.
So I take my event, work back 12 weeks from that date and my cut date is set.... the weeks leading up to that date is all about adjusting my mindset and preparing my game face.
I'll text family and friends, tell them I'll be going off-radar from social events etc - I'll buy my supps, AAS and food in advance wherever possible - and come cut day, it's game on.
So you pretty much summed up why you have only made slow progress in your above post where I have highlighted.
It's not about knowledge, or something I have that you don't - it's purely mindset.
If I'm going to do something, I do not GO WITH THE FLOW - I get shit done!
Simple as that really.
And let's face it... if you're dabbling in AAS, risking your health, spending copious amounts of money on drugs and ancillaries, not to mention food, gym fees and supps - why the fuck would you just 'go with the flow'?
It's a no-brainer for me.
Man Ben!! You doing F the F around brother!! If I've never seen any other posts by you, this post alone tells me that you are a man that bases your life around this lifestyle. Correct me if I'd be wrong. Not so many of us are the fortunate or I'd even suppose that dedicated. As I'd agree, a "go with the flow" attitude is no way to get shit done, I'd also say that some, probably many, of us CANT dedicate that kind of time amongst other things to reach the level your at. Oh how I'd love to, but I got three reasons looking at me for their next meal everyday as to why my time is divided. You are a hell of a teacher and your advise is much appreciated here. Just remember that some of us that have chose this lifestyle buying AAS, supps, food n stuff like that simply can't give everything it takes to reach the top. I don't beleive in using that as an excuse though. As for me, when I find the time I give it everything I have whether it's in the gym, dedication to eating right, being responsble with my AAS use, you name it. Just from this thread alone, OP has Damn near an entire layout from you and others as to how to get to where he is trying to go!! That's why I love this place!
