Re: A better vegan vitamin D supplement

I appreciate that there is another study out there. I'm very disappointed that it is a study that shows 1,000 units per day of D2 or D3 is inadequate to increase deficient serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels. We already knew that unfortunately. The study that interests me is which form of D maintains a...

Re: One week to competition.

For myself, my water weight can fluctuate by 5 lbs or more depending on sodium and carb intake. If I needed to make a lower weight class then I would lower my carbs significantly for about 3-5 days (that's a random number) and stay away from processed foods with added salt. I also tend to hold onto ...

Re: Thoughts on Pre-Contest Cardio

Well, you've heard my take on cardio before and I'm definitely in the Chris Aceto camp. Robert's posing coach is a former trainee of my trainer/coach but he's developed his own ideas since his competition days. My trainer and I have talked about this many times and he believes that you need to find ...

Re: VOTE for Best Overall Physique (WOMEN)

I'm not sure how contests are judged in Spain, but here in the US the figure contests have somewhat to do with muscularity and much to do with the genetics of having nice, feminine glutes. Women only need to drop to 10-12% bodyfat. Very doable for a vegan woman who so desires. Most of the vegans I'v...

Re: Female Vegan 40/30/30 Macros

Whoever told you that this is a major imbalance of carbs to lose body fat should have to give proof of that statement. People lose body fat eating whole food sources of carbs every day. I think 150 gms of protein is way too high for you. I only eat that much protein 2-3 times per week and I'm over 1...

Re: Instruments: What to do if there is no vegan alternative?

If you were me then you would play that lute to the best of your ability, honoring the animals who made it possible. If more people treated animals and animal products with some reverence, the world would be in better shape.

Re: acrylamide - what are your thoughts...

As always, dose matters most. We come into contact with substances considered toxic every day of our lives and we are not negatively effected because the dosage is small. Some of these toxic substances exist in raw or cooked foods but the healthy substances (phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals, etc) ...

Re: Proportion balancing

Keep lifting! This is my opinion only and what works for me. If I diet and do a lot of cardio I lose lean mass. If I diet, keep cardio to a moderate level and keep lifting like I do when trying to add mass - I maintain more lean mass. It is difficult, if not impossible to add lean mass while dieting...

Re: Breast Implants

Great topic. I am on the fence. I want them but am afraid of the long term results, maintenance, and all that stuff. I've found that results depend on the surgical technique and the type of implants. Silicone is better, IMO and under the muscle looks more natural, especially if you plan on competin...

Re: Maintaining muscle with very light weight!?

Tough question. If you want to maintain muscle then I would not go heavy on cardio (personally, I wouldn't do any non-weight bearing cardio). If you can only lift light weights then you'll need to adjust your caloric intake so that you don't gain or lose weight by much since the gains will most like...
