Paleo Party Animal Protein Shakes

by Frost on October 27, 2011

It’s a tough world for the fitness-conscious booze hound.

To your right are your party-animal buddies, generally unconcerned with the body-as-temple philosophy. To your left are the fitness, health and life-extension, uh, enthusiasts. They certainly have a lot of good advice, but many don’t understand a young man’s desire to balance work with play, lifting and nutrition with a weekly schedule that includes binge-drinking, 6 AM bed times, and unprotected sex with morally dubious women. I like to chalk my debauchery up to hormesis (See here, and here), but at the end of the day we need a middle ground.

In that spirit, I present Bronan The Barbarian’s Cocktail and Weightlifting Supplement Recipes. Required reading for any fellow Paleolithic Alcoholics in the audience.

I hear ya, “brah”.

But if you’re trying to lose a lot of excess fat and don’t have the patience for it, those cheat weekends really slow down your progress. It’s up to the individual to decide which tradeoffs they want at that point.

Now eating at a maintenance level and just improving body composition, the 80/20 rule or even the 70/30 rule becomes quite manageable. I’m a pretty clean eater throughout the week whenever I’m calling the shots, but the social pressure bit was tough for a while. But now that I’m eating at a maintenance level, I have no guilt over splitting a couple pitchers of beer on weekends. I might even have something really refined and desserty if it’s appealing enough (generally full of chocolate…I don’t miss wheat that much). I can just make up for it by being stricter for a couple days of the week.
