  1. – 225 grams of protein is too much, the lb / bwt recommendation is the protocol that is used in every weight-gain (hard-gainer) program.
    – What’s your breakfast like? I can easily get 50 – 60 grams of protein by simply eating eggs, bacon and veggies.
    – Get your calories from fat, your cells are made up of fat and your body thrives on it. Fatty animal protein, avocados, coconut products, olive oil. This will get you to 2500 calories EASY.
    – Those shoes are ugly and too squishy for crossfit
    – Next time try to Row a 2k. As fast as you can. It will be the toughest thing you’ve every tried. Much more effective than sitting on your ass for 30 mins.

  2. Louis –
    You don’t know me, but I work out at PCF. A few random thoughts:
    1 – I thought it was incredibly brave of you to post the link to your blog during Tuesday’s firestorm on the boards. If anyone could have put this Regular Joe character in his place, it should be you. Well done sir.
    2 – I am a girl, but I sweat like a dude on safari. I have sweat-through shorts AND pants and left an entire sweat angel on the rubber mats. It’s what we do in crossfit – we work hard. If I didn’t want to sweat, I’d go to yoga.
    3 – Nutritional supplements are just that. They are supplements. Nothing can replace or be considered a long-term substitute for real, nutritious food. It sounds like you’re relying on shakes and supplements for the convenience factor. As much as your body needs the real food to properly refuel and repair itself from workouts (and life in general), your brain needs the unconscious, psychological benefits of chewing, swallowing, and digesting whole food. Drinks aren’t food to your brain – they are calories but not food. Feed your body AND your brain.
    4 – Stop worrying about numbers, including (if not most specifically) grams/ounces of macronutrient meal ratios. Just eat real food. A piece of lean protein the size of your hand; about 2 cups of green veggies (preferably 2 different ones so you don’t get bored); and drizzle some healthy fat on the whole thing. If you’re doing olive oil, use your thumb as a guide (you want about the equivalent of your thumb). Do this 5 times a day and I guarantee your metabolism will re-establish itself as the fat burning, energy creating machine that its designed to be.
    5 – Don’t lose perspective. Focus on eating good, whole food for just 1 meal. Then the next meal. Rinse, repeat. You’re doing great and we’re all here to help you get through this plateau.
    6 – I’m going to leave a present for you on the shelves at Patriot. Look for an envelope with your name on it.
    PS – if I ever see you pulling 6300 meters on a rower after a wow, I will personally through barbells at you until you stop.

    Thanks for the advice. The scale unfortunately is a necessary evil for me, and the next time I start rowing I am going to wear a bike helmet…what can I say I’m stubborn.
    The food issue is one I’m working towards.
    I have not had a chance to checkout the present, so I will let you know when I pick it up, whatever it is thank you in advance.
    Have you also noticed the PCF crew who have posted here like to use lists? A bunch of doers…
    Thanks for reading.
