What are the Best Seeds for Nutrition?

Hey, everyone. It's been a long time since I posted last. I've gotten pretty lazy but I'm looking to finally get started. I'm in terrible shape. I'm still trying to work out the nutrition plan, one that requires little cooking and offers the most convenience. I've been browsing the nutrition plans o...

Re: How to Get Rid of Pencil-Neck?

Yeah, I'm referring to my entire neck as a whole. I know my traps need development but it seems like my neck is disproportionately thin. I assume that it will take care of itself if I pursue fitness long enough, but perhaps there's something I don't know.

Re: How to Get Good Posture

"The body was designed to be as energy efficient as possible. However, since our bodies have been put through the meat grinder of daily sedentary living, we have lost our energy saving capabilities. In essence, you are always fighting against gravity, and when your body is misaligned, it is fig...

How to Get Good Posture

Lately, I've been feeling like I'm not carrying myself properly. I've heard that bad posture can lead to back and neck problems over time while good posture can lead to better confidence. Does anyone have any knowledge about the effects of posture on health, mood, and training? Does anyone have any ...

Which Fruits are Best?

So I've been trying to incorporate more fresh fruit in my diet. I was out shopping the other day and realized that some fruit is way more expensive than others. A case of raspberries costs $4 while an apple or banana might be less than a dollar. I understand I should probably eat a variety of fruits...

How to Get Rid of Pencil-Neck?

Hey, guys. This is my first post in this section. I wouldn't say I'm all that interested in being a "bodybuilder" per se, but I am interested in getting a physique that is stronger and healthier-looking. One of the things I want to work on though is my scrawny neck. It really stands out wh...

Re: What should I eat if I can't consume Legumes or Gluten

I would second the going to the doctor idea, too. Eliminating beans and nuts from your diet is a pretty big thing. I would try a rigorous scientific approach to this before you consider eliminating such key things from your diet completely. Go to a doctor who can test you for allergies or intoleranc...

Re: HELP. I can't lose weight. I'm starving.

1400 calories doesn't sound like a healthy amount of food. If you eat too little you'll put your body into starvation mode and your body will cling to any calories you give it so it can survive the hard times. Your weight loss needs to be gradual or you'll work against yourself. Use a calorie calcul...

Re: Where am I going wrong? What should I do now?

You really have to work yourself hard to lose fat. Walking ain't gonna cut it. If you're going to walk, make sure you really push yourself. As for your knee pain, cardio doesn't have to involve running or walking. You just have to do some repeated and strenuous movement to get your heart-rate up. Yo...

Are Vitamin Supplements Other than B-12 Necessary?

So as part of my new diet plan, I'm trying to take a vitamin supplement every day. I'm taking Blue Bonnet B-Complex caps (http://www.bluebonnetnutrition.com). I understand that B-12 supplementation is important for us as our diet does not give us access to that, but are there any other nutrients tha...

How Much Fat Should I Get and How Can I Get It?

Lately, I've been trying to shape a better nutritional regiment. I've been focusing on trying to get more fresh fruits, vegetables, and nuts in me and I'm eating brown rice to supplement the calories. It's a decent start but I'm having a problem with fat. I'm 6', 140 lbs and I can tell I seriously n...

Preparing Frozen Spinach

I just cooked myself a whole block of frozen spinach the other day and, man, was that good. I'm about to go make another. I'm having difficulty thawing out that block efficiently and cleanly though. I keep taking the block and sitting it in warm water, draining it, and returning hot water to the bow...

Good Lentil Stew/Soup Recipe?

I went to a Greek restaurant a while back and had an unbelievable lentil stew. I think the basic ingredients were lentils, onions, tomatoes, and vinegar, but I'm not sure. I've been dying to make this for myself. I think it would be really great to make as a convenience meal. I could just make a lar...
