    I know he takes care of himself - and it shows.

    He does look very strong for a man his age, or any age for that matter.

    Too bad you have to eat 5 times the amount of quinoa to match a single 2oz chicken breast for protein.

    That also means 5x the calories. Adding it into a bulking diet when you are eating a caloric surplus would be OK - but as a direct substitute? well I guess if you're really against meat..

    You can get protein supplements in the form of powders and such which are good enough. There are plenty of vegetarian/vegan bodybuilders. The need for protein is usually exaggerated. Beans and soy are healthy protein rich alternatives to meat.

    Besides hair, my other biggest (possibly bigger) problem is height.

    I am 5'6", and as a white male in America that is just unacceptable. I've been saving up for leg lengthening surgery and hope to get it done before I turn 25. Unfortunately it will mean a 6 month stay in a foreign hospital.

    2-4 inches. 2 inches is usually 6 months downtime (sometimes less with the elite European doctors). 4 inches risks complications and usually has downtime of 9-12 months.

    I'm curious what it does to your leg muscles. They are probably in a permanent state of being unable to grow. Just a guess.

    I would presume you could not do heavy squats. You could run and jump though. Contact sports are off-limits though.

    Its about rabbits...but usually this kind of study is applicable to humans. Connective tissue is pretty much the same in everything*

    Basically the younger you are, the better chance your muscles can adapt because you are more flexible.

    So if anything, work on your calf and hammy flexibility before getting this done.

    Ya I've heard about that. I have a lot of work to do. I can't even bend over and touch my toes.
