Re: Mixing and storing Pea, Rice, Hemp, BCAA, Glutamine. Saf

I don't see why there'd be an issue as there are a lot of protein powders/supplements that have BCAAs/Creatine etc. in them, premixed. I'm not 100% sure though.

Re: Supplements...HELP!

I was seeing pretty good results then got scared I'd plateau and that would be it, so I bought into the supplement thing. I eat SUPER clean, whole, non processed foods only. Logic told me that was enough, but I kept hearing the whole "you gotta do supplements to get REAL gains' routine, so I ca...

Re: Supplements...HELP!

Thanks! I really appreciate the feedback. It's not that I have an excess of cash I want to drop on supplements, but I keep hearing that if I don't want to "waste my time and actually see results" it's what I have to do. I'm a very small, lean female, so I'm guessing that makes things a lit...

Supplements...HELP!

I'm sure this question has been asked a kazillion times, but my search thing never seems to work :(. I'll make it quick and hopefully painless for you guys... It has been recommended to me that I take three specific supplements: BCAAs, Creatine and Glutamine, because according to a few personal trai...

Re: "Whole Food" Diet?

I pretty much eat that way all the time. When I made the switch, it didn't take long for the heavily seasoned/sauced, semi processed or fully processed food to start tasting really bad. Things start to taste really sweet or really salty once your taste buds adjust to the way food in it's natural sta...

Re: Protein Question

Thanks so much for all the suggestions. I think the protein shakes are probably the easiest way to sneak in more calories. I've also been eating spoonfuls of straight almond butter to try to up my caloric intake. I'm definitely NOT trying to lose weight. I can barely break 100lbs. Here's to gaining ...

Re: Protein Question

I can do grains/beans a couple times a week with no problems. Quinoa I seem to be able to tolerate a little better, it's usually part of a meal a couple times a week as well. I do eat a fair amount of almonds and nut butters. I can't eat anything refined or processed, I get sick. I have a very fussy...

Re: Vitamin B-12: Where To Get It Cheap And Vegan

Well, that was quick. MegaFood supplements are all vegan, apart from the probiotics. They are all raw, whole food supplements as well. : )

Re: Vitamin B-12: Where To Get It Cheap And Vegan

I take a raw whole foods balanced B supplement made by MegaFood. Synthesized vitamins are not all that available to the body. I know the brand I take is vegetarian, but I'm not sure if it's vegan (I've read the ingredients over and over and can't see what would be in them that would not be vegan, bu...

Re: Does anyone know how to make sushi rolls without rice?

Maybe buckwheat? I find it to have a chewier, more ricey texture. Might be worth a try....Hell, I might try it!

Protein Question

I'm getting a little concerned over my protein and calorie intake and if I'm getting enough due to dietary issues. I eat a ton of raw fruit, veggies, nuts, hemp seeds etc. but I'm struggling to get ENOUGH calories in daily. Honestly, I'm not even quite sure how many I should be eating per day (I'm 5...

Re: Cardio and Weight Training

Sorry for the delayed response. I got hit with some super bug and have been flat on my ass for a few days. Nice... Anyway... Yeah, you guys are right. I really need to split my workout. Upper body one day/lower body the next/rest etc., instead of cramming the full body workout into a day. I'm starti...

Re: Cardio and Weight Training

As far as routine goes, kind of. I REALLY try to designate days for different areas, but I find I end up hitting just about everything every time I'm in the gym. It ends up being a full body workout. Because I end up doing this, I take a day off between gym days and stick to just doing light stuff o...
