You're very welcome, Zach! I have had a bad lower back my whole life. And yes, a stronger and more stable core is the key. There are things that I never do or attempt because of my back. But I also know that, by working with your body and knowing your own physical limitations, you can have a healthy, strong, fit body. You still have to push yourself. Hard. You just have to learn how to push yourself to YOUR edge, without risking injury. Keep up the great work! :)

Yeah, I think Earth Balance is from the devil. I mean, I do enjoy it from time to time, but it gives the impression that it's healthy, when really it's just fat.
