  • Mike is it ad to eat after a certain time of day. My job is busy. Sometimes I don’t get lunch and then when I happen to get home after 9 pm I start eating.

  • Yup, said I was gonna bulk. Sure did gained over 100 lbs. So now what? All in the belly. Beer, candy, fat. Ate carbs like it was hot female porn star

    I’m intolerant to salads and anything lacking sugar.

  • Mike, one question: Can you really be in a calorie deficit and gain muscle? I am about 5 kilos overweight, sedentary occupation, work out chest and back every Saturday (this once a week routine works for me I am 51 and recovery is a bit slow)

  • I’m having 400 grams of white rice a day on a 2k kcal cut and it’s going great. Healthy carbs are your friends. Loads of energy and never hungry

  • We try to complicate things in this society, whatever is trending is where people often flock too. Simple and less is more is my philosophy with my clients.

  • Do you have any suggestions for helping people transition from a fast food/convenience food lifestyle to more of a “real food” and cooking lifestyle? A big complaint I hear is that someone doesn’t know how to cook, doesn’t know what to shop for and thinks it’s going to be a huge time commitment

  • I’m having a ‘Mike Thurston’ binge watching day after being off for 9 weeks! It’s nice to be able to connect. Primer week begins tonight 😉

  • my nutrition is constantly the roadblock for me I weigh 80kg stand at 5,9 and have been lifting 5 days a week for 2 years, I cut down first and looked really lean and then started a bulk and saw goodish results. I then spent 5 months cutting to only lose like 1-2%bf and my strength plummeted. I went back on a bulk after this and due to the fact I am on my feet 8 hours a day at work, I cycle 12 miles a day to and from work and then I work out 5 times a week anywhere from 1 hour and half to 2 hours I was consuming close to 4k calories and not gaining weight no strength and my composition seemed to stay the same. I obviously can’t train during lockdown so gained a fair bit of Bf and now I am back trying to cut however atm I am eating 2500 calories a day which I weigh and track I am eating 200g of protein a day and my weight, BF and Strength have all platueated and it is really starting to make me resent training as I push as hard as I can and will still fail on the same sets and reps which I wouldn’t mind but I am seeing no visible changes to composition or weight
