    Basically they thought me drinking a protein shake a day would make me fat, despite it being barely over 200 calories.

    I've found that unless you're talking to someone who is equally as educated as you are with exercise and nutrtion, there's absolutely NO point in trying to argue with them. Once people have have it set in their mind that a 500 calorie/day diet and 200 crunches and bicep curls will make them look like vin diesel, they aren't willing to let go of it. Unless you're a PT at a gym, then they'll believe anything you say.

    They won't respect you if you can't tell them WHY eating more will help you gain muscle. Read up and do the research, then school the fuck out of them

    don't waste your time trying to educate people. Just do what you feel is right, and let the results speak

    i tried giving a noobie advice on bench pressing (he didnt go to chest) and i told him he would get a much better workout/result by doing so. he still continued going 6" above chest level:sadwavey:

    which is why i dont give advice unless asked ever since after what F&N has told me

    my roomate is convinced that me eating "so much" is bad. same story as you.


    then he told me to do what he is doing and eat only chicken salads and then lift because hes "burning fat while building muscle."
    "no dude, thats not true"
    "omg yes it is, not only did i read it in the magazine but i've lost like 4 pounds of fat and gained about 2 pounds of muscle."


    :ugh::mamoru:

    I did. I said "You can't gain any kind of weight if you don't eat more then you burn. It's fucking simple math"

    It's probably not so much that they don't believe what you're saying is true. They just don't trust you. You have to be more confident about it and basically act like a PT. You need to be able to counter anything they say while sounding like you know your shit. It's not easy to convince a relative or someone you know well just because they have a specific view on you.

    A friend of mine had gone to a cirque du soleil show and commented "Those people have zero percent bodyfat. I need to get to the gym." I said "That's not possible unless you're a starving child in Africa. Bodybuilders when they compete are around 3% and can get as high as 15% when they are building muscle. They do this because it's easier to put on muscle if you don't worry too much about gaining fat. Once they are done bulking they diet to lose the fat." It was fun educating her. :mamoru:

    I had to convince my mom that creatine was fine for me by letting her read my research paper.
