I did was involved in some arm wrestling today at a vegetarian (vegan) chili cook-off. There were about 600 people at this vegan chili event. I had the opportunity to arm wrestle a couple of forum members.

Good times with IronCladBen and bartronx7 and of course, the man himself, Big Bald Mike of Bonebreaker Barbell: http://bbbarbell.com/

Austin, TX is one of the great vegan cities in the country!

Hi Rob,

Is it possible to gain muscle tone from a lot of fruit. Are there any fruit that should be avoided due to the high sugar content?

Do you eat nuts and seeds or are you following mostly the 80/10/10 diet.

I don't see any reason why eating fruit would take anything away from muscle tone, it seems like if anything it would help a little. I'm not aware of any fruits to avoid, but I try to eat a variety of fruits from berries to bananas to fruits of all different types of colors and styles. I don't follow any specific diet aside from vegan. At the moment I'm eating soy-free and gluten-free but I eat whatever I feel like as long as it is vegan. Not sure what my macronutrient breakdown is, have no idea really. I just eat whatever I feel like day to day. Just how I roll.

Hey Rob,

Sorry for all the diet questions but how do you feel gluten free. Do you still cook foods or just eating more natural such as nuts, seeds,, fruits and veggies.

Do you also stay away from real soy such as edamame

No problem. I'm happy to answer questions, but I wouldn't invest too much into my answers. I just eat whatever I feel like. I'm not weight training these days and I'm not in great shape, so I don't think what I eat matters that much.

I don't feel any different on a soy and gluten-free diet. I don't know what I should expect to feel, but I don't feel any different. I'm sticking with it for a few reasons, one of them being to focus on more whole foods and less processed foods, to save money, and to see if over a longer duration, I'll notice some sort of positive changes.

Yeah, I cook food. I usually have brown rice every day with beans, avocado and greens. I eat a lot of Indian, Thai and Mexican food.

Most of my snacks consist of fruits.

I don't eat nearly as much as I did when I lifted weights. I don't supplement these days either, aside from vitamin B-12.

That's where I'm at right now. Have a great one. I should probably go for a run later today.

Hey Rob,

Thanks for your feedback.

Yeah, I found some SKORA shoes and my Saucony shoes to both work well. I realized that my last 4 pairs of shoes have been Saucony and the Skora's are new.

Today I ran a 5k and timed it. I finished at 22:05 which I believe is something like a 7:10 minute mile pace. I was just running for fun, testing out my new watch. I haven't had a wrist watch in about 10 years, since I last ran, so I picked one up to track my laps.

In total I ran 4 miles today and biked for an hour yesterday and hiked a mountain a couple of days before that.

I don't really have any specific training goals right now and I'm OK with that. I'm just getting involved with fun fitness activities.

Had some potatoes, avocado and romaine lettuce tonight. I forgot I had some olives to put in the mix too. That shall wait until another day.

Have a great one!

That's a fast 5km time Robert, you're making some great progress. 4min/km was about as fast as I got over half marathon distance, tough pace to hold!
I often found that something as simple as buying somehing new gave me fresh motivation to run, I have a Timex Global Trainer watch and those things are addictive!
Keep up the good work, have a top weekend buddy MF.

I've been MIA again for a bit. 5 flights in 6 days in various parts of the country.

I ran more than 10 miles without stopping today in Denver, Colorado.

Good run. Hope to get to bed early tonight to rest up and keep on training with these long runs.

I ran for 1 hour and 37 minutes today and plan to run 2+ hours later this week and next week get in a 3-hour run.

Then I have another 3-hour run on Dec. 8th.

Looking forward to putting in the miles!

You certainly are putting in the miles now Robert, great work man. Hats off to you, once you set your mind to something it's as good as done. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving MF.

I ran 21 miles the past two days. All of my last 4 runs have been longer than 1 hour and 15 minutes. The longest was yesterday's 1 hour and 46 minutes.

I'm hoping to run 3 hours at once this weekend or as close to it as I can, and a 3-hour run the follong weekend with IronCladBen.

We'll see how it goes!

Wow Robert! I couldn't imagine running one hour let alone three! Glad you're enjoying your new sport and hope you reach all your goals bud :)
