Re: Dr.McDougall -- The Starch Solution

I used to do the starch based thing until I got into weight training. I simply couldn't increase my performance with the low fat/protein levels. Dr. Mcdougall and his pals didn't really do the athlete thing anyway. They target audience are fat 40 year something folk who are at death's door. This web...

Re: Should veganism mean more than what you put in your mout

The dietary and environmental reasons might give impetus for considering limiting animal consumption, but can do little for holding an ethical position, especially when sustainable CSAs and happy 90 year old healthy dairy farmers are introduced. So that leaves the ethical position, and if one uses S...

Should veganism mean more than what you put in your mouth?

Would it make more sense to define veganhood based on knowing the ethical principles that your veganism rests on? It's almost academic time, which brings back memories of co-ops hosting vegan cooking seminars and vegan student groups. What was obvious in all of them was that people went to these sim...

How did you learn to do proper deadlifts and squats?

Did you get a personal trainer? Did you have friends to show you proper technique? Took a class?

I really ought to do these exercises, but I can't risk injury. My livelihood depends on it.

Re: Doing standing military press every day

Okay, so I'll be aiming for 5 reps of 5 sets per day. Might not be the best way, but it'll be a nice experiment. Here is the baseline so far. Now, I'm just at 4 reps of 5 sets per day. Sometimes I can squeeze out the 5th rep, but mostly just sticking to 4. I'll post back in a few months to check for...

Doing standing military press every day

I've done push ups and pull ups and chin ups every day at home, seeing huge gains in strength and definition. But what about doing standing military presses every day? 3 reps for 8 sets counter productive? My max is probably 6-7 reps. Just got 2 45lb dumbells from someone, so it's not like I can sim...

Are veiny arms without low bodyfat a sign of disease?

This is my under forearm without flexing or working out within 20 hours. My body-fat is probably around 15 to 20 percent. Why are my arms in general have "rope veins"? Is this a sign of high blood pressure? Another strange thing is that while I don't have a prominent 6 pack, my veins on th...

My personal experiment in a low fat vegan diet

I figure I'll use this forum to document my progress in beginning a low fat vegan diet, something similar to Dr. Esselstyn's or Dr. Mcdougall's. I began a fairly compliant vegan diet in July 2011, dropped 30 pounds to my current 200lb. My lipid profiles says that I'm heart attack proof, so all is go...
