My buddy is talking about how he want to start an intense weight training program me: so you know you're going to need to up your protein intake huh? whey powder is the easiest way to do it. him: nah I'm not going for that, I just want to burn fat me: Umm ok but you're going to be tearing your muscles, they need protein to repair themselves. him: Yeah but I don't wanna get huge. me: Even people who just run benefit from high protein diets you know. it encourages your body to burn fat and preserve muscle. him: yeah but that's not what I'm going for. UGH. What the fuck?! Do you want to just waste away to nothing then? The only way I will agree to help someone in the future is if they forget all their own stupid notions about fitness and do exactly what I say.
