The meal plan is pretty much laid out so you are eating every couple of ...

Looks like you're making some good progress and being consistent...that is key! You might not realize it, but I think that sometimes the only way to reach your potential is to reach past the bar and know where your limit is. I know that I've learned the most about my body after injury. It may not be...

Definitely triathletes. There's no other sport that requires someone to balance three extremely demanding disciplines. Also, it requires you to use nearly every muscle in your body. On top of that, they are the most mentally tough athletes in the world to have to endure that much pain for such an ex...

I completely agree that nothing will make you disease proof in this world. Some people are better off than others in certain factors such as diet, air quality, relationships, etc. That is why some people who eat complete junk are able to outlive so called "health nuts" and never get sick. ...

Well, because along with feeling better later in the day, that is when work demands are higher, meetings take place, social gatherings are scheduled, etc. I hear that...that's another reason why I find that the mornings are usually better for me.

Interesting topic, as I have played around with my sleep over the last year. I've found that when training minimally (3x per week for about an hour), I do well on about 8 hrs of sleep. However, I need a good 9-10 when increasing my training. Also, I noticed that I needed this amount before going veg...
