Re: Should GMO's be the next big battle?

Well...yeah good discussion and I don't think there are "absolutes" in anything I said...I'm pretty open-minded. So I'll just avoid them when I can, and you can tear them up if you wish. ;) I am blessed to live in a town that used to be the self-proclaimed tomato capitol of the world...but...

Re: Should GMO's be the next big battle?

This is frustrating. Has anyone here heard of selective breeding? We have been making 'GMO' foods for a long time, just not as advanced as at the genetic level. We have bred plants for specific properties for hundreds of years, and we are becoming better and better at it. The problem has always bee...

Yup, you're famous I guess ;) That definitely is a WTF moment if you don't know them or maybe even if you do and knew nothing of it!

Re: Eating Fruits After a Full-Protein Meal

I disagree! There are many natural bodybuilders who believe spiking their insulin by the intake of carbohydrates (usually higher GI rated) following your workout has anabolic effects. Also carbs are protein sparing. What this means is that having some carbs with or about the same time as protein wil...

Re: Favorite Cheat Meal

Never had New Glarus, but I'm from Texas so no wonder. I have heard about it. I used to be an avid member on BeerAdvocate's site, but not longer stop by unless I'm reading reviews on beers. Sorry for the plug but I'm not affiliated with them. I've only had one geuze but liked it and can't recall whi...

Re: Advice please: I think our house is haunted

I don't think you're a nut job unless I am too. ;) I have been "frozen" in bed before when it was just me and the dobie who alarmed me by staring at something behind my back when I was laying there. I could see him because of the glow of the digital clock. What is strange, he usually gets ...

Re: Progress Photos

Thanks for the advice, RickB! I've started looking into how different GI foods affect the body and it's pretty interesting. I've found that most of what I'm eating is already lower GI index foods and the eating 2.5-3 hours apart is coming naturally because I'm not eating big heavy meals that sit in...

Re: Should GMO's be the next big battle?

When I can, I avoid them. Since the season is here, I buy most of my fruits and veggies from local farmers. 3 food documentaries that I believe whole-heartedly are Food Inc, Hungry For Change, and Forks Over Knives. This is what started me down my vegan path that is still not complete, but trying. T...

Re: Progress Photos

Before I made an attempt to become vegan I ate 5-6 small meals every day and stuck with lower GI type carbs and achieved a bodyfat in the neighborhood of 7%. This method can be done in a vegan fashion too I do believe. The easiest way for a body to gain fat is to flood your system with carbs in each...
