    Hey guys! I am that thin guy who asked the question!

    Since I asked that question a while ago I can give you an update which I think you will enjoy:

    Since the question I got a membership at a good gym and got a trainer to teach me proper lifts who from what I could tell was great and down with paleo etc. I started with a stronglifts type program of deadlifts, squats, bench, overhead press, rows. I was so freaking weak when I started. I squated 95 lbs and struggled at 5 reps and deadlift was around 110 lbs. Upper body was worse and I couldn’t bench the bar for reps. In terms of weight my lowest was 135. Fast forward to today…

    I am now 152 lbs and climbing (very slow gains). Cutting the fat was so darn easy but this I think is likely how a lot of frustrated people might feel who are losing fat and it’s super slow. It has taken me around 6 months to build up 15 lbs of weight. The cool part is it is almost all muscle. I have definition now and a 6 pack and pecks and back muscles and shoulder muscles. I am squatting 200 right now and dead-lifts are at 215. I am benching 110 right now (started at 30 lbs). I have lots more to gain and it is very slow but when I think about how much i’ve gained through strength training i’m amazed.

    I know you get a billion questions so answer them late but listening to your podcast and doing tons of research I really knew the heavy lifting would be my answer. Glad to hear your answer was pretty much exactly what I have done and it is working. The message to anyone else is that it can take a long time depending on what you are looking to do. Some women might lose a pound or 2 of fat a month and get frustrated but you are going in a good direction. For me it is not a sprint and it’s been a year and a half of clean eating and 1/2 a year of strength training with road blocks in the way but every month everything gets better. I probably “cheat” way less than most people who are trying to lose weight because it’s ingrained in me now and i’ve tried some cheats but get nothing from them anymore.

    Oh and i’m sleeping 8+ hours a night now and have no stress anymore as well so everything is just right and i’m primed for my successes. Thank a lot!

    Hi Jason and Sarah,

    Any chance you can clarify the purpose of taking creatine on the next podcast? Or what’s the best way to take it? Like in what doses, how often, how much? Before workout? After workout? With food, empty stomach? That kind of detail.

    You mentioned it on the April 1st podcast, and I’d like to hear more about it from someone whose opinion/knowledge I trust.

    Many thanks!

    Such informative and inspiring podcast. You piqued my interest a few levels when you mentioned creatine usage. As a women I’ve been hesitate of trying it due to weight gain, water retention and how to properly use, as well as how to note effectiveness. I would love if you devoted a whole or half ( I won’t be greedy) podcast to shedding greater light on what sounds like a great addition (creatine) to eating, working and resting well
