Well what do you think is going on? You're hungry! GO get your macadamia butter and whatever you crave, you don't have to skip your work out if you like it, muscle mass is always a good thing. Good luck!

It's always hilarious to wrap an ems band around a someone's arm, put it up to maximum power, and then shock them into punching themselves in the face. If you bleed enough, then it's great for depleting your iron levels.
