The more you defend yourself, the weaker your position becomes. Know you are the teacher/trainer as you have been there and done that and you know what works. Remember the story of the lion raised by sheep, and one day a older lion takes the loin to the river where the loin's reflection appears.
Kyon wrote:I am still working out, in a small group, with a trainer. He is really emphasizing proteins and carb cycling. He suggests that I drink a protein shake pretty much every 3hrs and a couple small meals consisting of 4oz of protein on a salad(or with 1/2 c rice, no added fat or oil). Now this is not working for me because I never do well on just liquids(which is most of the day), I just need to chew on something I guess. But I am now kind of afraid to start back on doing McD again. I did manage to take off some fat, though I weigh the same, and am afraid that I will undo whatever I have accomplished. Irrational fear I suppose but I have it anyways.
Do you happen to remember which course and/or which lecture dr Campbell discussed protein powders?
I completed the program almost 2 years ago. I was among the first group to complete all three courses. The subject of protein powders and manipulating plant proteins to resemble animal proteins never came up in any of the lectures (though in a webinar he briefly mentioned something about changing the amino acids in wheat to resemble animal proteins and how that was problematic). I am certain of this because I regularly read over the transcripts. I wonder how the program has changed over the past few years and what else I am missing out on...
