Re: Why all the hate on peanut butter?

Thanks for all the replies everyone. I believe organic peanut butter is good for you as long as you don't go crazy with it. Peanut butter, banana sandwiches appear have become a staple food of mine since I'm a broke college student.

Re: DrBro's lifting adventure

Are you a game of thrones fan as well? Looks like you have some consistency going in your workouts. Ever throw in something new so it doesn't feel stale? Despite many people recommending the show, I've never seen an episode or read any of the books. Games of thrones actually came up briefly before ...

Re: DrBro's lifting adventure

Last week/weekend was incredibly busy for me because of all the History papers that needed to be written, so I didn't get anymore time at the gym like I wanted to. I finally got back into the gym today and it felt really good. I've been slowly improving my form with every visit, but the downside is ...

Hey MF. I just wanted to stop in and say Hi. Even though I just became active in the forums, I've been following your journal for months. You're a real inspiration to me, and I'm glad to see you're doing well. Keep up the awesome work!

Re: Why all the hate on peanut butter?

I guess I'm hanging out with the wrong people then haha. But seriously, certain friends(especially ones who exercise) and family members have a very negative reaction to it. I ask them why, and the most common answers are: "it's all fat", or "it's so bad for you". Sometimes I get...

Why all the hate on peanut butter?

I've always been really confused when it comes to peanut butter. I understand that non-organic/natural pb often has bad hydrogenated oils in it, but people I know seem to freak out when I mention pb; like it's one of the unhealthiest foods ever created. What's everyones view on pb, and why do people...

DrBro's lifting adventure

Hi everyone! I'm a long time lurker, but finally decided to become active in the community. I've been on and off lifting for ten months now, and now I'm ready to get serious. I'm using this journal to help me stay motivated, and to hopefully get some tips. I'm starting with the 5x5 stronglift routin...

Unfortunately I haven't been in a band for a while, so I don't have anything recorded that's any good. Plus I can't take my drums to college, so I don't much playing in these days

Hi Everyone! Greetings from Chicago

I've been lurking these forums for too long, and decided it's about time I introduce myself. My name is Cody. I'm 22 years old, live near Chicago, and currently attend Western Illinois University studying History. I found this website about a year ago through a friend who was trying out the vegan fi...

Re: what did you pack for lunch today

I'm currently enrolled at a university, so I don't always have time for lunch because of classes. On those days I usually make a nut butter sandwich with some fruit and/or nuts/seeds. Yesterday I packed an almond butter and apricot sandwich with a banana smashed in-between

Re: Tofu, or not Tofu - is that the question?

As soon as I upped my calories(went from like 1600 to 3000), I saw nice gains and I started losing fat again. But most importantly, I felt way better and was much healthier.

Re: Tofu, or not Tofu - is that the question?

I agree with Fallen_Horse on this one; Cut back not only on tofu, but also processed foods in general. 30-40% seems like a very high percentage. As far as food intake goes, you should definitely experiment a bit. I used to eat around the same amount as you back when i counted calories, and eventuall...

Re: Partner is obsessed with his weight!

When I first started getting into food and fitness, I actually developed this problem. Like your partner, I was obsessed with numbers(body weight and counting calories) and was pretty miserable. Luckily my partner was very understanding and wanted to help me. She did this by getting me to relax more...
