Re: BlueRose's pics! Come see the insanity!

I was into week 5 of Insanity a week ago & sprained my ankle. So, I've had to lay off for awhile. I hate "losing" what I've accomplished this far. At any rate, you look great!

Re: ON soy protein?

Have you looked into creating your own? I've done this using True Protein in the past. Now they are http://truenutrition.com. I have not purchased from them recently, but a couple of years ago it was the way to go as far as pricing, creating your own mixes, etc.

Re: Low starch meal plan for a vegan

Since my initial post, I have compiled a list of go/no go starchy foods from various sites and despite what you have posted I am going to try it for awhile. :oops: I've tried many things over many years, but one thing I have not tried ...

Low starch meal plan for a vegan

I started following "Yo Elliot", a strength coach, bodybuilder on youtube. He makes a lot of good points, very easy to listen to. One of his videos is on the subject of the low starch diet, and it got me thinking... To get rid of my stubborn belly/chest fat, I feel the need to embark on a ...

Questions/Ideas on fat burning

For years it has been the accepted idea to workout at the best target heart rate to burn fat, approx. 60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate for max fat burning. I recently read on a cycling forum that this has recently been discovered to be "wrong", and they feel that H.I.T., shorter...

Re: Create your own daily/weekly supplement chart?

I'm using a table to create the chart, this is what I've come up with. Nothing fancy, but I guess it will work unless I come across something better. http://www.mediafire.com/view/?9d6ftx3zgwvtqv6 I wanted to create something that wouldn't be too complicated to follow - people tend to lose interest ...

Create your own daily/weekly supplement chart?

Anyone have a good idea for this? I'm attempting to create one using OpenOffice but I'm not really pleased with the results. I've searched through the OpenOffice templates a bit & haven't come up with anything good. I'm looking for a weekly chart that you can input all the vitamins/supplements/e...

Natural Gyno Reversal?

I've been plagued with carrying extra "fat" on my upper chest all my life. (I'm a guy). I assume it is "mild" gyno, although I've never really had it diagnosed as such. Even when I'm at or close to my ideal bodyweight it is still there. Anyone have any suggestions for any type of...
