  1. it's lazy to use wikipedia as a reference. wheatgrass does have benefits, and broccoli does have benefits. considering how easy it is to grow your own wheatgrass, i'd argue it's cheaper. wheatgrass juice, 100g Calories 21.0 Cal Carbohydrates 2.0 g Fat 0.06 g Water 95 g Sodium 10.3 mg Iron 0.61 mg Folic Acid 29 mcg Dietary Fiber < 0.1 g Glucose 0.80 g Calcium 24.2 mg Magnesium 24 mg Selenium < 1 ppm Potassium 147 mg Zinc 0.33 mg Phosphorus 75.2 mg Vitamin A 427 IU Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) 0.08 mg Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 0.13 mg Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) 0.11 mg Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) 6.0 mg Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCI) 0.2 mg Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) < 1 mcg Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) 3.65 mg Vitamin E 15.2 IU Chlorophyll 42.2 mg Choline 92.4 mg broccoli 100 g Calories 34.0 Cal Carbohydrates 7.0 g Fat 0.3 g Sodium 33 mg Iron 0.7 mg Folic Acid 63 mcg Dietary Fiber 2.4 g Calcium 42.8 mg Magnesium 19.1 mg Selenium 2.3mcg Potassium 288 mg Zinc 0.4 mg Phosphorus 60 mg Vitamin A 567 IU Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) 81.2 mg Vitamin E .7 IU Choline 17 mg
  2. and we all know wikipedia is a bastion of knowledge. /sarcasm
  3. i disagree. i think men believe women want muscly guys, but not that... bruce willis-like, and not steriod freak.
  4. your best bet are sale shoes.. shoe prices have been sneaking up. go for asics, saucony, nike... even though vegans like new balance, they look horrible.
  5. I think by including that a vegan doesn't consume leather or uses other animal products from animals, his definition was a short way of explaining the vegan ethic (note that this definition isn't just a vegan diet- it includes other products). I think it's a good definition and you're being too harsh because of his views elsewhere on the forum.
  6. "only" 33g protein? that's a pretty good portion of protein for the day. Not by any nutrition standard based on scientific research and experience. Mmm no. For a male 5'8" (avg height in the US), you need 30-50 g protein per day. If you need more because you're active, then you'll be burning more calories and will be able to eat more food with more protein to meet higher needs. If you're taller, you need more protein and more calories (again, you can eat more to get your protein). Say you want 60g protein and you need 2000 calories a day. That's only 3g protein per 100 calories- a slice of whole wheat bread has 3-4. Getting 33g protein for 750 calories is pretty decent.
  7. "only" 33g protein? that's a pretty good portion of protein for the day.
  8. It's a way people react, so it's relevant, lashing out or not. Know your enemy. I think the one person in particular people are referencing sure acts like a troll. I wasn't implying everyone else was.
  9. Beforewisdom, I think it's always worthwhile to learn the opinions of "the other side". If your FT job is politics, you should pay more attention- since, unfortunately, there are a bunch of people who share his opinions. I agree with Robert that you should just ignore it if it bothers you. Don't feed the troll.
  10. Words and ideas retain their meaning regardless of the time period. Socialism is still socialism, capitalism is still capitalism, blue is still blue.
  11. No no no! You do not get it. Socialism means an economic system, not just one instance. "An economic system in which the basic means of production are primarily owned and controlled collectively, usually by government" FAIL
  12. Yeah, she's definitely not a socialist- it would help if you looked up what a socialist means. That's pretty insulting you'd compare her to one (insulting to socialists)
