usually vegetarians know better than to take a bunch of harsh drugs sacrifice their health, though you can never count them out

It must be his preference, I wouldn't imagine him to be health cautious.

Only vegetarians with gyno can....

Seriously: it takes some calculating, but a vegetarian or even a strict vegan diet can be just as succesful as one with animal protein. Your body's just concerned with amino acids.

Either you're being sarcastic or you need to provide image proof to back up this statement. NPC lineups are deplorable in the men's categories if your rating on our normal bb'ing parameters!

Have no idea what you just said,.. regardless what you think, the NPC sets the standard, a damn high standard for successful bodybuilders, when is the last time you saw someone win there pro debut coming from another organization. I have seen this particular bodybuilder compete in person before and if that`s the best you can look as a vegetarian then not that good considering this guy wouldn`t crack top 6 at an NPC Pro qualifier

You're right, its the only route to go to get to the next level, but I asked to provide picture evidence of a recent lineup in any recent NPC contest where this guy would get blown away. I'm saying, from what I've seen, the lineups are terrible and if compared to those of even 10 years ago, you'd be comparing apples to oranges, imo.

says Dr Dutch

Hey Dr., a friend of mine, who is also a Dr. and he also lifts weights (and he juices lol), told me that protein in vegetal cells are *glycosylated with cellulose, and because we humans don't have the necessary enzyme to digest cellulose, protein from vegetals is not a good choice. What's your opinion? Huh

*: "glucosidada" in spanish, I'm not sure if that's the correct translation

not all vegetable proteins are bound within cellulose, would be my response. people survive lifetimes without meat. What would be your dr. friends response to that?

He didn't say it's useless, he said the body can't assimilate it as good as it does with animal protein

Chris Cormier was training him at Venice Beach not long ago. Told him to take up meat and fish, otherwise he is relegated to second tier status.
