The internet has so many "get big fast" schemes and there are so many mixed reviews about benefits of certain kinds of food as well as workouts and etc.
What I want to know is... what really works?
I am aware that depending on your workout goals and your own genetics that your body reacts to things differently, what I want to know is what works for what goals?
(I know this is quite the topic to cover, but it's definitely worth discussing)
If you have any background in Kinesiology, personal training, or as a nutritionist/dietitian, your contributions would be GREATLY appreciated.
*Vegan-ism vs. Eating meat vs. Vegetarianism (I hear a lot about how some say going vegan makes them feel a lot more energized, but is this a placebo effect? or is it actually proven?)
*Your views on amount of protein and carbohydrate and fat intakes (Obviously it varies according to your workout goals and body type, but what works specifically for those kinds of goals?)
*Your view on supplements? (Preworkout, post workout, during workout, types of protein, BCAAs, etc.)
