Re: Cannot stop eating unhealthy stuff (candy) – halp!

Have you tried increasing your protein intake? You need protein to fill you. Once you feel full you won't have the desire to eat so many unhealthy foods. I normally drink a protein shake after my workout and one at night because I am usually super hungry at night and if I don't eat protein I tend to...

Re: Almond milk the best choice?

I like almond milk best for my cereal, though I like coconut milk for smoothies. I love soy milk but I cut it out for a while due to the estrogen thing. However I really need to eat more protein (to build muscle) so I've decided to incorporate some soy milk into my diet again.

Re: Navy Girl Wants Some Help!

Here's a pushup program I read about on another board. It seems to work! "You find your 2 minute max number of pushups, multiply that be 4, and do that amount for 10 days. On odd days, you do them all at once, as fast as you can. On even days, you break them up throughout the day. After the 10 ...

Re: pre-workout nutrition

I started drinking 20 grams of protein (pea or rice) along with my breakfast of quinoa and almond milk. I feel like the protein has helped me keep up my endurance and strength for my morning workouts. For the past three days I started drinking 30 grams (15 grams of actual protein) of hemp protein fi...

Re: Vegan lifting gloves?

It looks like Valeo discontinued their non-leather gloves. I'll look into cycling gloves. Is there any other options?

Thanks!

Vegan lifting gloves?

The only brand I can find are Newgrip but it's not what I'm looking for. I just want a glove that's cruelty free, are there any other options? I'd love it if there was a women's version. I've started Crossfit and I can't wear gloves then so my hands are ripped up right now. I know eventually they wi...

Re: My body isn't where I expected it to be

I've been lifting heavy for a little over two years. I introduced more cardio about a year ago when I picked up running. I'm thinking of getting my thyroid checked again and progesterone levels since I have no other ideas.

I would have expected a huge change by now.

My body isn't where I expected it to be

So I'm really peeved. I still weigh exactly the same as I have since a few months after giving birth over three years ago. I know my body composition has changed a little. I looked up when I first started taking my measurements about 2.5 years ago and I've lost 10" but 3 of them are from my che...

Re: Tofu ?

The soy I buy is great because there is so much protein (60g) vs. carbs (5g). That's why I love it so much. As far as I know nothing else has that kind of ratio as far as whole foods go. I tried tempeh once, it tasted ok but I can't get past the mold.

Re: Tofu ?

I buy organic tofu. I buy everything organic for the most part. I've never heard that tofu contains high levels of aluminum before. I'm going to research that.

Tofu ?

I've been on a tofu kick for the past few weeks. I eat a bock of extra firm tofu a day and I love it because it fills me up so well. I'm sure it's all the protein in it, one block has 60 grams of protein in it. So ideally I'd like to continue eating tofu but my meat loving bodybuilding brother in la...
