Yes you can gain fat. Not easily! Takes guts but it is possible.

Posted on July 16, 2012 at 1:45am 8 Comments

Can you gain fat on a high fruit carb, almost zero overt fat diet?

Of course you can. It CAN be done with fruit. I did it. I have experimented from lean to fat and back and forth just to prove it to myself. It is far more difficult with fruit, since even bananas and dates (and I did not even use Durian fruit in my experiments), while more calories per volume than most fruits (hence there great benefit) exit your cells fast, compared to other foods, including…

Muscle building on fruit put to rest finally please!

Posted on July 12, 2012 at 11:56pm 2 Comments

It is a shame that most people are in such a quagmire about this topic. They see buff muscular bodies in magazines and men especially want to emulate. I was one of them almost 40 years ago. Luckily I discovered after only a few years of serious training that the protein myth is true. Calories are king. Carbs in particular. Get enough calories and you get enough protein. That is the only truth you have to know. So why do so many struggle with the muscle building dilemma? Simple. Time patience…

The Bare Facts About Building Muscle on LFRV by Chris Califano

Posted on May 4, 2012 at 2:30am 6 Comments

I have gotten tons of emails on this subject. I want to post this for those of you not entirely sure about this diet for acquiring lean muscle tissue.

It is entirely possible to build muscle completely from scratch on lfrv. In fact any other method is not healthy. Of course you can build more muscle "size" but you are not really building it when your nitrogen retention from excess (they call it "extra" ) protein bloats the cells with excess waste. This is what that garbage…

How To Find Your Very Own Fruity Love Interest Now!

Posted on April 29, 2012 at 10:20pm 8 Comments

If you wait for a fruitie to come along then you had better be mighty patient. I've posted about this before. The key is to create them. That's right. In your "fruit laboratory". The main thing is to choose someone who sparks your chemistry, and you enjoy each other. The diet part is "easy", if you use your vibrant example plus you know how to seduce with food. As Chase touched on, you have to learn how to make some raw comfort food dishes that literally taste better than cooked. If your…

Are raw food/ nutrition certifications worth it?

Posted on December 2, 2011 at 10:42am 7 Comments

(This is in additiion to my reply to a question about the INN certification course.  I can't find it even though I entered my comment just under an hour ago.. sorry to mix this up...)

PS

I met Jack Morse (the gent who brought Walt Disney public, among other things). I was just staring out and was hired to install an elaborate custom home gym in one of his houses. I had what I called "Long Island's First (and only to this day 25 years later) Educational Fitness Store" It…

I just read your blog and was curious about getting enough muscle rest. I've heard overdoing it (a little bit, not to the point of burnout) is ideal, because it forces your body to recover faster knowing the muscles will be broken down again so soon. Is there any truth to that? Please let me know!

Hi Chris! :) I found u first on Frederic's site. I  explored your web site. Great work!!! And strange as it is, just a minute ago I was wondering how to contact u, and then I got a message from someone here and saw u among here friends. There, everything happens with a reason. I am writing a book in Serbian, my mother tongue, on 811, and wanted to mention u as 811 bodybuilder. I would also put your picture. Do I have your permission?
