Sus! another newbie.. may tanong agad..
kumusta sa lahat!
im so glad i found this site. i am as newbie to weightlifting as they come. although i've been into mtbiking and running for several years, it's only now that i've gotten into weight lifting.
i have always been fat all of my adult life. the last time i was not fat, (and actually skinny) was in my elementary days. but even before entering high school, i began to fatten up, and just kept on getting fat until about 4 years ago, when i maxed out at 240lbs. now im down to 180 or so.
due to current work location, i am unable to do mtbiking, but as luck would have it, there is a free gym (but very limited in equipment) where i live. i have been going and testing the gym, and i am starting to like it. and now, i am researching because i want to take weightlifting more seriously. i plan to build a home-gym when i go home.
for my first question, to the more experienced lifters out there, how does our typical pinoy diet match the requirement of weightlifting? i have been reading about nutrition on the net, but everything seems to be for american/western diets. although abroad, i am still able to have (and prefer) our typical pinoy diets of rice and ulam (sinigang, nilaga, kare-kare, etc). since 2009, i have limited my intake of rice, and virtually eliminated all junk foods and soda. i don't smoke and rarely drink. i eat lots of veggies and fruits.
my 2nd question is connected to the first.. although i eat relatively healthy, i would like to do body sculpting without the use of supplements of any kind, no protein shakes, no whey powder, no casein, etc.. is this possible?
yan lang po muna for now
