Better off building some muscle

Set a bench press / deadlift goal, less subjective

You keep saying that BUT even though you have shown a lack of motivation and laziness (visa situation) you are not making this bet to lose, are you?

Not only that but BECAUSE you have not been active at the tables, you might figure now is a very good time to do so, you needing money etc.

My take on it, you were already committed to grind 200 hours, and hit the gym/diet anyways. Asking 6-1 is as ridiculous as your chick making jokes about your dick!

Based on other prop bets you are asking for way too good of odds.

My thai gf of 2.5 years makes psycho dorky jokes like this all the time. I think it's a SEA thing. Personally I find it adorable, and she's as unclingy as they come as far as Thailand is concerned.

Of course if she looks at you like this

when saying **** like that, plz run away if you want to have more vagina adventures

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Jokes are jokes but even if it is a joke, I'd be somewhat worried. I mean other than for laughs why exactly does she bring this up? Got to be more to it imo. She either way too insecure, scared you are going to cheat on her, or worse she does act out her words.

If she said it once and never again, I guess it's ok, if she says it all the time jokingly, sure I take it as a joke but for it to be in her mind like that, it is somewhat worrying. Factor in that they do cut of dicks there hmmm! Anyway if it were me I'd make it very clear that I'm not joking around like that, well my girl wouldn't even bring that **** up, I'm the Alpha in my relationships. If she does though, say later on in the relationship and her true colors appear, I''d consider dropping her. Girls try to control you with fear or manipulation, **** that ****, it aint working with me, it won't go well for her, trust me!

Personally I think it's a control thing, she obviously does not want you to cheat and she shows you that she is jealous, which means she's into you. Could also be straight up manipulation, subconsciously or I'm just looking too much into it.

I never said he couldn't, I just pointed out that his odds are not rational and other prop bets that are harder to complete have way lower odds.

If the cutting dick thing kept coming up I'd be worried yea, was just saying making those kind of psycho jokes seems common from girls in SEA. As far as my situation is concerned, it is clear that they are jokes in good fun which like I said I find funny/adorable. All about the body language/subtext.

The Mother of a 14 year old Girl in Limpopo cut off the Penis and balls of the teacher who raped her daughter and handed them into Police station. last Month I think.

But seriously how many Missing Penises have you heard about. Would have to be pretty low % of the Human Race.

Just remember Info go in Hard and come out Soft, after your slow start I even thought about sending some $$ to jspill to organise you a descent Puck.

I knew a guy who GF slashed his ball sack with a razor blade while he slept, because a few days before she found out he banged some other girl.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

I wanted to grind a lot on Saturday despite gf being here. Got a bit distracted, put in multiple short 30-60 min sessions and after 4.5 playing hours it turned out I've broken my staking agreement's stoploss rule of 3 BI ($120) without noticing. This is the 2nd time it has unintentionally happened to me and tonight I'm not allowed to play and have to wait till Monday and sweat for my staker's decision if he wants to continue working with me. Even if I get another chance I won't do a poker prop bet because my staking agreement is now at risk and I don't wanna make it worse with some prop bet that might be -ev for my play.

Lucky me no one has taken the prop bet when I was willing to make it.

Spending time with my gf has been really hugely -ev for the fitness challenge all weekend. To lower my body fat I need to eat healthy and few carbs but we had a lot of cake, pizza, rice, cookies and chocolate in only 2 days. On a bright note she does everything to make me happy, made sure I cum 6 times in 3 nights, cleaned my whole apartment with cleaning material she bought/paid for by herself and keeps bringing me stuff for my apartment. Signs she wants to come more often or move in. I'm fine with the former, not sure about the latter yet.

I will continue the losing 6% body fat prop bet without the poker part for 5-1 odds as yellowfever pointed out it's the only really hard part of the prop bet. All terms stay exactly the same, I have to lose 6% body fat (by BGP's judgement) from my video footage of 5/12 compared to the same type video footage on 6/30. Deadline for taking the prop bet is 5/17 10pm PHT. If nobody takes the bet I'll still try lose some fat but I guess with a prop bet would be way more interesting.



If I keep eating those I won't lose 6% body fat anytime soon:

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

The hardest part was to lose 6% and still be useful in poker/with gf. At $200 1-5, you can make $1k a month just by fasting or finding sum steroids

Would you like recommendations on how to start your weight loss?

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Yeah didnt even think about the steroid thing on the weight loss. Another thing is the poker side of this bet could of easily been played by someone else. Maybe not the whole prop bet but getting someone to run 5 hours a week or something wouldnt be difficult at all. Not even saying you would angle just you have to cover these grounds in prop bets when someone offers them up.

You would of got 3.5 to one without drug tests and videotaped poker agreed upon. That was a great offer compared to all the harder prop bets ive seen on 2+2 at much worse odds done.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

I'm not gonna take steroids or starve myself for $500 lol, I'm trying to become more healthy, i.e. stop the cheat days to my otherwise healthy diet and work out more regularly. Given that poker didn't go well at all over the weekend, $100 is the max I'm betting.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Before the weekend I would have liked it but spending 48 hours with her was really a bit much so I'm not sure about that. Maybe 3 nights a week would be ideal.

The hardest part is sleep, I'm not used to and can't sleep well sharing the bed with someone else.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

And the obvious: living with a clingy Filipina will get really ****ing annoying over time. I'm still enjoying spending time with her but I can see myself getting sick of it if we spend every evening together. She's 23 btw which I guess makes it a lot more bearable than a gf younger than me cuz most Filipinas act 5-10 years below their age.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

I've helped many friends, also my parents and my brother to put their nutrition in check. I've learned through self research and also with an amazing 'nutrologist' that lives in my city. She's friends with my family and I'd bring those fad trends such as IF, Paleo, etc to her so that she could check what is bull**** and what isn't

My 45 year old father now sits at ~17% bf. He binges on weekends and works out unconsistently. His hair loss problem has improved A LOT in the past 5 years.

So... how to lose weight:

1. Cut added sugar, white rice, white bread, fructose syrup, artificial sweeteners and fruit juice. For as many days as you can. Cold turkey. This will reduce the ammount of calories that you ingest, but most importantly : your body will get used to eating low-calorie meals and will actually start to ENJOY them. I'm speaking on personal experience. Used to hate veggies, now broccoli, rocket, cabbage, onion are some of my favorite foods.

Fat and protein are not addictive as carbs bcause they're harder to digest, so your body doesn't even want too much of them. So ypu can eat meat, nuts and eggs without concern.

It might seem that there is nothing else to eat, but I'll give u some examples
Meal 1: pork, broccoli, carrots. Dessert: pineaple
Meal 2 : two omelettes with bacon, onion, peanuts. Water with squeezed lime for dessert.
Meal 3: cooked milk with oatmeal, bananas.
Meal 4: chicken soup with veggies such as sweet potatoes, yam, cabbage, onions, garlic, pepper, paprika, cauliflower, carrots. An apple as a dessert.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Good advice from Going2Asia. At the end of the day though, the only way to reliably lose weight is to figure out your maintenance and eat less calories than what you need. Note that this doesn't necessarily mean healthy. I just did a cutting cycle recently which was successful AND I was eating like ****, I looked properly ripped but ended up in the hospital due to gastritis (i suspect protein shake abuse, as I already had stomach issues)... Which is contrary to popular belief that eating healthy = losing weight. 99% of losing/gaining weight comes down to calorie intake, doesn't matter what you eat.

The optimal would be to follow a diet such as Going2Asia outlined and also count your calories. My take on it though is that following a diet like that is too hardcore for someone just getting into nutrition/fitness, you will likely fall off the wagon. Follow it but allow for some flexibility (slight cheat meals etc) #IFITFITSYOURMACROSBRAH

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

we all need to remember that OP has the poker and gf as main goals, not fitness

Torg0th
while you are correct that calories in vs out, there is no reason to consciously skip your veggies and consume sugar/white rice and bread.
eating veggies :
*more energy and health overall bc of the micronutrients and insulin regulation
*less calories so easier to cut



I do IF too, berniebrah great way to cut indeed

great to see other gym goers show up

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Kind of bothers me that people keep saying "look at the odds the mcdonalds dude wants, op is scamming!" (exaggerating)

The mcdonalds dude is a prop fish.

Having said that, most people don't want to risk 6 to win 1.


Also lol at thinking op might take steroids for the prop. If you're afraid of him cheating then he could just drink alcohol. There's a ton of reasons he won't be using steroids... the price among other things.

No scamming.. Just doesn't acknowledge a market situation properly for a bet :
is delusional overall by categorizing sponsorship rewards expectations under prop bet fair market price. For 6 to 1, I was adding liquidity on the receiving end / his side as I mentioned early..

So if he had not peed on his only action, the market was 4.5 / 6 for people to bet on, which is a great 2-way action price for this bet..

now he's even more delusiional at 5 to 1 proposal for just a single objective !
