Re: Calorie Discrepancies?

The kcal/g numbers for each macro aren't exact, no, and differ per food. The overall calories on the nutrition label are also rounded, as are the individual macro gram measures.

Re: Raw-vegan Youtube CH attacked by Eating disorder group

Are you really suggesting that cooking food is the sole reason for what has lead to the metabolic syndrome that sweeps are nation's today? If so, NONE of the doctors or nutritionists that work in the same hospital as me would agree with you. Neither does the British heart and stroke foundation, nor...

Re: What is a tablespoon?

That works out to 12.5 ml per spoon, which is way bigger than a teaspoon (though smaller than a tablespoon, *shrug*). It's actually closer to a dessertspoon (don't ask). Either it's actually much more than 150ml total or you're not using a tablespoon. If you have more precise measures you should use...

Re: What is a tablespoon?

Have you tried just googling? Here's a good one that pops up: http://images.zesco.com/pimages/002/002 ... tware1.jpg

A tablespoon in most countries is 15 ml, which is three teaspoons. It might run a bit larger in the UK and is usually around 20 ml in Australia.

Re: Thoughts on Alcohol

Here's a little secret us girls know. :D You can actually buy and order low calorie drinks, booze and mixers. LOL, Most bars use a brand called Skinny Girls. I'm not sure how a guy feel about ordering that but is an option. You can also but them at the liquor store. There also a brand called skinny...

Re: Peanut Butter

It comes In big tubs but contains no oil at all, 100% peanuts so no mixing needed :) Contains no _added_ oil, but does contain natural oil, which will separate if you leave it sitting for too long. It even says so in the product description. If it doesn't separate you should be suspicious of emulsi...

Re: Should GMO's be the next big battle?

Selective breeding and genetic modification are two very different beasts. Selective breeding ensures that particular traits become more prominent (for example, a less "stringy" mango) by breeding together varieties that possess said desired trait. It's perfectly natural. Genetic modifica...

Re: Tofu hotdogs

I've never had those hot dogs in particular, but I second Eden's advice. It's a bit more work, but you can make your own sort of tofu dogs by slicing and roasting tofu. You can even coat it in whatever you like for flavor. You basically just take a block of tofu, slice it into ~8 long rectangles abo...

Re: Deadlifts and squats in the same workout

Ahh yeah I was referring to strong lifts but what I'm planning on doing is a 5/3/1 style routine but just mash squats and deads into the same day, I wouldn't necessarily call myself a novice and I've done 5/3/1 + 5x5 before. You're right it's going to be difficult when it gets heavy, maybe I'll do ...

Re: Deadlifts and squats in the same workout

I don't see why not, as long as you're not going heavy on both. Obviously you won't be able to pull your max on DL after doing heavy squats, but you can always go for volume or power. Base 5x5 (assuming you mean Stronglifts?) and Starting Strength are intended mostly for novices. Once you get up int...

Re: Wheat & Gluten drama follows lactose intolerance due to

The point of my post was this: People are neither wheat or lactose intolerant as per nature. People in India have been living off it for 5000 years. Whats wrong is what these Western GMO UNNATURALIZATION companies did with it. Well, no. Even the article you posted doesn't claim that. It's actually ...

Re: Why all the hate on peanut butter?

Aflatoxins used to be a real concern, but not so much anymore. As long as you're buying organic or major brand peanut butters, you should have nothing to worry about. The FDA is quite strict about this one, although they came to it late. Even back a few decades ago, you'd need to eat a ton of peanut...

Rob, I appreciate your insight buddy. Your opinion is no less valid than anybody else and you offer some solid scientific backing.
