Hello all manly men,I'm looking to ask a girl out, but I have a few concerns.I'm going to start with some backstory. I've had my eye on this girl since probably the beginning of 2012 I think. Most…Continue
"I tried a little intermittent fasting two summer's ago when, in my early bulking, I realized I had been perhaps too successful as my pants started getting tight around the waist, something that's never happened to me before.
I did the 16…"
"Intermittent fasting is probably simply rediscovering how an old religious practice works:
The point of religious fasting is to exercise the functions in your brain that regulate staying "on track" for accomplishing a goal. The…"
"I always practiced fasting as a strictly religious discipline, never really thought of using it as a weight loss plan. While leading a weekly Bible study in college I fasted 24 hours prior to the scheduled meetings.
Religous or not, there…"
"I've done it in various forms. I prefer Carb Backloading and skipping breakfast. If it works for you, keep doing it. Good luck with your weight loss, but please consider focusing on body composition and not just the number on…"
Hello,I read the post of AoM about intermittent fasting(You can read it here: http://www.artofmanliness.com/2012/01/25/intermittent-fasting/) about 1 month ago, but I didn't get to try the 24 hour fast until today.

"Josh, you like a girl and you think she knows you like her. If that's the case, then the longer you wait the more she thinks you're scared. Not good.
You can't yet worry about whether she wants to date you on an ongoing basis when…"
"Yes music can be very manly.
What do I usually listen to? Well when I'm working out or just looking for my usual I like to blast Anberlin, The Black Keys, Skillet, 3 Doors Down, etc etc...
When I'm looking for a bit of variety I usually…"
"Seriously, just ask her. If she says no, oh well, to bad. You will ask out many, many girls. You will get gunned down many times. This is not a bad or awkward thing to ask. Your asking her out on a date, not to be the…"
Thanks for all the advice, I really didn't expect this many replies. The replies really made me want to ask her more haha.
Anyway, I think I'm going to ask this week, probably between Wednesday and Friday, when a good…"
"I have two bits of advice--worth roughly that much I think.
One is that if you want to ask her out, you always have the option of doing so in an open-ended sort of way so that it's not a "yes or no" question in the first place. I…"
10-4 good buddy.
Especially were say a random game of dodgeball or something could break out. It should be fun. What was that class? F U N! Not a dinner then movie. Dinner is too high pressure you have to do the work of keeping things…"
"Just ask. A model in Maxim magazine once said something like "Want to know why we go out with jerks and gorillas? They asked, and you didn't." And forget being awkward around her and her friends. Why should you feel awkward for paying…"

"I can agree with one aspect of Europe is there school systems. We are ranked low in that aspect. The problem with our school system is that not enough funding is going into them to get the best teachers. Not every teacher is going to be the best…"
Hey guys, it's good to be back!I left the site a while back. Needed to focus on some health stuff and take a break from social media. I think I went by Cal (my middle name). Looking forward to catching up and meeting new people.See More
"That would make for a very interesting novel.
The one thing I realized was that only congress can sign in amendments. Which, currently, is always and forever only going to be those which serve their purposes. Power needs to be taken away from…"
"That is a good insight. some jealously there. Its that old "takes one to know one" you see things in others that you are really are.
It really is a shame because lots of this weird thinking is permeating the culture. It started when dads…"
"I wouldn't be good at coming up with a slogan.
So, let's see.
