Re: Nice write-up on athelete diets and rocking vegan style

Re: How much Fructose is bad for you?

I'm not aware of any suggesting that fruit leads to cancer. My understanding on the research that I have read on the subject is that scientist showed that cancer uses fructose to grow. All cells even cancer need energy to grow, all they showed was that cancer cells use fructose as well as glucose to...

Re: Nice write-up on athelete diets and rocking vegan style

One beer can set you back two weeks?! I might have to reconsider my Friday night alcoholic treat. Damn. :partyman: I just had 6 cucumber agave tequila drink with dinner the other night. Each drink comes with 2 shots tequila in it... I figure if one beer sets me back 2 weeks then each shot of tequil...

Re: How much Fructose is bad for you?

Fructose in it self I wouldn't say it's bad for you. Some people do have trouble with to much sugar leading to health problems though. Other don't. It's always a combination of factors. I have a friend who is very healthy and pretty cut, very athletic who eats 90% fruit in her diet. It's almost all ...

Re: Plant Protein Powders?

Omg yes.. the vanilla plant fusion is so sweet! I get the unflavored one. I also like Sun warrior protein powder but they changed their packaging so Im currently protesting the new packaging. They use to come in this very simple bag. It was minimal and laid fairly flat. Perfect for cyclist. Or peopl...

Re: Anti-vegan cashier......what would you do?

Thanks for the response and advice Kora. I am leaning towards doing as you suggest and just let it go. Although, I do not think she meant it as a joke at all, if so she has a weird way of joking, because she did not crack a smile, her body language didn't appear to be in a joking manner and she sai...

Re: Greetings from DC

Hmm...DC eh? Whole of my family still lives there, I left shortly after college at about 26 yrs old. I could probably cover the negatives in a pretty short list: 1) housing is expensive. Simply due to density of population. While a standard 4 br house on 1/4 acre lot in a suburb can easily top $500...

Re: Plant Protein Powders?

Personally I like plant fusion pea protein. I reviewed Garden of Life once personally I didn't like it. It was like drinking sand. It was very gritty. It wasn't as much a digestion problem for as a humm.. clogging problem. LOL, I couldn't poop for a week. :toimonster:

Re: Health benefits of apple cider vinegar

I love apple cider vinegar. I set it right beside lemons and garlic with it's agility to cure or help certain medical problems. It's cheap, effective and easily used. In some of the more rural areas where i live people will take almost empty whiskey bottles and add herbs & garlic, then fill them...

Re: Soy Protein causes Gynecomastia?

It actually rare that men get gyno from soy, unless there is an underlying problem or they are in unbalanced hormonal state, like teenagers or older gentlemen. .. It's a very common problem in teenage boys because of hormonal changes, regardless of soy consumption and generally resolves itself. Howe...
