By clean gains you mean mostly fat but from "clean" sources. 

I wouldn't call it "mostly" fat, obviously 5 lbs a month there will be fat, but with the right diet can have healthy muscle gains.

Woke up today at 324.6 lbs.  Down 29.4 lbs since the end of November.  At this point all I've done is change my eating habits. Smaller portions, better choices, as little refined sugar as possible, tr

Finally reached my first goal of 208 lbs I'd set based on the trainer's body fat measurements.  Far from obese but I'm not exactly svelte either.  Will lose another pound or two so I'm firmly below 20

I see the obvious problem here. A guy whose magnum opus on FBGs starts with "so I loan this chick I don't know 3 racks" called BS on me for saying I averaged a loss of 8 lbs a week on a diet. That is

Research shows that unless you have "help" natural lifters under ideal conditions can expect to put on 4-7lbs of muscle every 12 weeks.  And a guy like you would be at the lower end of the spectrum since you've obviously already put a lot of hard work in at the gym.  Muscle gains come slowest to those who already have some muscle mass.  That's where my "mostly fat" comment came from.

Of couirse it does vary a bit individual to individual and you are pretty freaking strong so maybe it's possible for you.  Just not for the vast majority of guys.

#### it, I'm in.

I wasn't kidding when I said I am afraid to step on the scale... I have never been worse to myself than the last 4 months.  This will be embarrassing.

Just saw this thread, seriously thinking about joining in.  When is the cutoff?  Need more details, could be a good motivator for me.  Been really bad the last 4-6 months as well.

Oats. Can you vouch for some of these dudes?  Some mighty low post counts

He is going to hold the cash. But I would worry about scamming this to an extent. Could easily sandbag.

Yeah. I can put on fat like a Wal-Mart shopper no problem. My goal is to not buy new pants. But I will admit my thighs are pushing out some of my dress slacks #quadzilla

If not already done so, I'd like to suggest a universal weigh in time. I nominate first thing in the morning before everything has been consumed. I also suggest at least one weekly update per participant. 

I don't have the Fitbit but will be happy to send our moderator a picture of my scale with me and a penny on it if anybody wants that.

I gained 35 lbs over the span of 3 years while regularly doing crossfit.

Any old school wrestlers here who will cut the week of. Just want to know what im going up against here

Also, I will NOT be drinking 10 gallons of water before weigh in. Not my style. 

Oohhh that's a good point. I'd suggest a rule against dehydrating oneself before final weigh in.

I just weighed myself.  This is bad.

Or good. Depending on which way you're looking at it.

Guy is a 35 year old triathlete and he's here complaining about his metabolism.

- 40 year old dad of three small kids with a desk job and no workout regimen to speak of

I should have been more clear. I put on weight if I look at food. I've never had a good metabolism. So I don't see it starting to kick in at 35.  If people are worried about my post count I'm happy to sit this one out but I'll still post my results. Again, just looking for more motivation.

Yeah I have no idea who some of these dudes are. Sorry. Let's stick with board regulars.

@Otis, are you going to PM us all your paypal info?

Yes, I'm going to PM the folks who are in tomorrow morning, with my PP info.  Someone made a good point regarding random dudes coming in and potentially cheating for the win. 

:cstu: was a sobering reminder that it's still the internet, even here. So, I'm just going to use my discretion as to which dudes are in on the money pool. Submit your final applications this evening gentlemen. Tomorrow, we dine in hell!

 

Or something.

If you want to pop up a quick 5 or 10 for the first weigh in. 

1) salt is your friend

2) malto dextrin (type of sugar they give T1D) is fast acting and can add temporary weight to your liver

3) booze is not your friend tonight. Stick to low abv beer and quantity over quality.  Regular bud is the best bet. 

4) don't puke

5) don't take down too much protein.  Make your liver distribute as much glycogen as possible. I imagine this isn't a problem for many of you.

 

Do this and can see an easy 8 pound swing on a 250 pound frame in 24 hours.

Okay, I've been exclusively in the SP since football season started so would someone please explain (or point me to the appropriate thread) the whole pigeon thing going on in the FFA?

TIA
