Gant and Emily ( no need to apologize), My point was not to help him make unhealthy choices, it was to give him solid advice based on our knowledge and experiences to help him achieve his goals in a healthy manner. I reached 5- 6% bf and was extremely healthy, fit and strong. But I did it by eating healthy and training hard. It can be done in a healthy manner and if we can help someone get there intelligently and without impacting their health in a negative way instead of sending them to seek out advice from those that will suggest hours of cardio, 6 protein shakes a day, and grueling supersets of curls and skull crushers, then wouldn't it make sense to do so.
