Picked up Dr Fuhrman's book today at Barne's and Noble

I've only read the foreword and introduction so far.
But I already know I'm going to like the book.
Chapter1: Digging our graves with forks and knives.
That title is so true (and sad) for so many people.

Hi! Can I just say thanks for posting so many photos of Phipps Park! I was born & raised in Billings and miss it quite a lot sometimes :cry: . I can imagine it is pretty hard to be vegan there, are there other vegans around?

Anyway, good that you are training with weights, I notice you post a lot about bicep curls. Definatly need to list more details and more lifts :D . You mentioned starting legs soon, but I haven't seen anything posted ;) .

Hi Crystal
Glad to see somebody from Billings.
I do know a few people who are as far as I know vegan.

Bicep curls are the only thing that I seem to be improving on.
A little on the bench press too, but not much else.
Those two exercises are the only 2 that I'm closely tracking.
I'm still doing the others though.
Someday I'll post the weights on the other exercises.

I haven't started using the attatchment for the legs yet.
Just doing single leg calf raises, climbing stairs, and bodyweight squats.
My knees are pretty bad from injury, pain when doing squats.
I'm afraid to try any weights right now.

That's cu, I've had bad knee problems myself, but as I started squatting heavier and building the surrounding muscles, a lot of it went away. Was really nice :D . Could be totally different though. My injuries were from Track.

I'd like to encourage you to post your other lifts anyway, but only if you want to. Often I've felt stuck in certain lifts, but when I look back, I'm able to see the changes, even if it takes months to do so! Progress can be slow and its hard to look objectionably at it. Its nice to have a record to refer back to. That's just what helps encourage me though, definatly stick to what you are comfortable posting :) .

Take care of those injuries!

Arms work out

Tuesday - June 06, 2006
Lazy Day

Since June 2, I've been almost raw.
The only non-raw food for me has been soymilk
At least I think soymilk isn't raw. Aren't the beans cooked?

Hey, MV :)

Yes, soymilk is cooked. Do you like nutmilks? I love Brazil Nutmilk; but most any nut or seed (or combo!) is delicious. Mmmm...pistachio milk! :D

You can make oat milk (best cooked), banana milk, fruity milks are raw...They're all really easy.

Hi Raven
I haven't tried any nut milk, just grind some nuts in water?
Or do you buy the cartons in the store?
Banana milk sounds interesting

Wednesday June 07, 2006

Chest and Shoulder workout.
I tried an decline and incline bench press for the first time.
The decline was very awkward for me.

I still feel that I'm doing something wrong in my press.
I'll figure it out before next workout.

Posted nutmilk info for you in the recipes forum. (don't get overwhelmed, they are as simple as you stated above; I just like to be thorough ;))

By the way, remember we were talking a bit about getting huge? Did you see this in Dr. F.'s Blog? One more piece of confirmation about what Dr.F. teaches about the dangers of eating to "bulk" with all that fat/calories and protein stuffing. It strains the body and its organs, including the heart.

"In his book Eat to Live Dr. Fuhrman claims the training concept of “bulking up,” common among NFL lineman, jeopardizes players' long-term health. Steven Reinberg of HealthDay News reports on new research supporting that idea Dr. Fuhrman’s position:: Read it here

Thanks for the long recipe post.

I'm about 1/2 done with Dr. Fuhrman's book, it's great. I'll read his blog also.
I've already done enough to jeopardize my long term health.
42 years of the Standard American Diet.

I'll take what muscles I get with a good healthy diet
