I would put it down to experience. USD4300 is not a lot of money, in the scheme of things. It would probably cost more to actually get it back. It will also consume a lot of emotional energy that will just eat a hole in you, and that energy could be better spent on building your business.
Yes it is a crappy pill to have to swallow, but being cheated is pretty standard here in the Big C. You will here of lots of locals who are also cheated, ripped off, etc.
As for the guy being super friendly, that is what confidence tricksters do to get your confidence.
I am pretty sure that Haney's 'avoid complex carbs' equates to eat only simple carbs. If memory serves he ate 2 or 3 pounds of white rice every day.
BTW a body building buddy of mine got protein poisoning, and was off training for several months as a result. Yes you can eat too much protein.
A lot of bodybuilding advice now says that you need carbs for fuel otherwise your body will be breaking down your hard earned muscle mass.
In the old day, when I was a boy, bulking up (putting on a lot of weight) in the off season and then cutting in competition season was seen as the way to go.
But this stopped back in the 80s with BBs like Lee Haney (8 consecutive Mr Olympia titles) extolled the value of eating rice to energise workouts, and staying in near competition shape all year, with no need for cutting, and feeling energetic all the time. The wisdom beeing that when cutting you not only loose the fat, but also a lot of muscle into the bargain, as well as feeling sick and weak all the time due to lack of carb energy.
Some of the high energy fat burning programs like Body of Life also recommend frequent intake of carbs, (small amounts 5-6 times per day) and especially before bedtime.
No results found.
Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.
In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.
They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.
They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.
Quirky little store with all sorts of odditites in stock, which is a big plus for me. I see stuff I had forgotten I even liked.
A bit dearer than some other places, but any small independant trader will cost more than the nationals, even back home.
On the up side it will save you driving around the city, and that will save you money.
No shop is perfect, but this one is very good. A bit like those slightly odd little delis/specialty shops back in Blighty.
I was getting mixed up with the other international clinic that was open on XiYuan Lu, but the block is now under re-development.
I blame the confusion on pre-senile dementia, and the resurection of a 3 year old thread.
Lots of nice big brand performance bikes but not good for those of us on a budget.
