Re: Can You Build Muscle on a Vegan Diet ?

I dont really believe theres such a thing as "superfoods", thats a marketing term. The body needs a few things in the right amount....intense training / stimulation, rest, calories and water. :supz: I have finally found someone I agree with on the super foods issue. As far as building mus...

The Sun

I have been reading Ken Cooper' s Start Strong Finish Strong. I have always enjoyed Dr. Cooper' s work on cardiovascular exercise, and his book Aerobics kind of dented my skull in realizing the importance of conditioning exercises. One thing that I disagree with him however, is the Sun. He sets the ...

Re: keto diet for vegans?

The Ketogenic Diet was developed in the 30's. It was used to reduce diabetic symptoms. And it worked. Then it was discovered to help alleviate seizures. Before big meds were developed to be used on individuals with seizure disorder, the Ketogenic Diet helped seizure patients. It is still used today ...

Re: Holy shit. Creatine.

It is nice to become acquainted with another person who is missing his large intestine. (Well, my lower large intestine. I was born with caudal regression syndrome.) Please feel free to PM, me and we can share notes.

I am Back

Hi, I am Jon. (People sitting in folding chairs say, "Hi Jon!") I remember when this forum was pretty new, and Robert was just getting it rolling. I decided to return. This is a good forum, and a plant based diet, although my current year by habits are embarrassing, is the way to go. I los...

Re: Winter Sports

Downhill.

I only went once this year, but I think I might get a pass to Targhee or Snow King next year.

I do get my fingers and feet quite cold.

Re: Vegan Kung Fu Student

I started Wing Chun about ten months ago. It is the first martial art I have really stuck with (sorry Judo, Tae Kwon Do, and Haganah). I catch a bit of heck at work because I go to "slap" fighting twice a week, but no one will go with me. Wing Chun is what actually got me back off the couc...

Re: Dr. Oz helps pin Cancer on carbs today. Help me fight t

The "Good" Dr. Oz will say whatever is "popular" at the moment. He had Gary Taubes on a few years ago and whined like a baby when he ate low carb for two days. My parents are in their seventies and watch him. Every so often I have to remind them he is a quack. Do carbs cause canc...

Dried Fruits

Hello Gang, I used to be a big candy bar eater; Twix and Hersheys for the most part. I have been switching to dried fruit, Mariani brand usually, I like the mangos and dried dates. I assume those are better for me than candy, but aside from that, are dried fruits to "sugar" packed to eat i...

Re: 01.12.2012

Thank you for the message Robert.

Thursday: I didn't workout today, but I did ski for 2 hours in the evening. Skiing is always fun.

I will workout this evening though, probably just kettlebells.
