  1. yes, everything looks way better update, and with more profiles too. good job!
  2. I just sprouted some mung beans. Now I still cant find where sprouted beans give a lot of calories. If you go to calorie-count.com you see that Calories in Mung Beans, Mature Seeds Raw: 718 cals in 1 Cup but Calories in Mung Beans, Mature Seeds, Sprouted Raw: 31 calories in 1 cup I sprouted some Mung Beans recently and always wondered about this. Now if I ate the unsprouted beans, thats an amazing amount of calories for cheap. I would loe this. But when you sprout it a cup goes dramatically down to 31 cals. Thats not much at all. yeah i didnt mention mung beans. i mentioned lentils and chickpeas.... those are the two I find to give me a lot of calories and protein too
  3. there was a "talk with topher" article somewhere on how to get 6 pack ABS on this website. but yes, below 10% bodyfat.
  4. SPROUTS give lots of calories. like sprouted lentils and chickpeas
  5. I found an easy way to take in raw calories for me. I have a very well balanced 100% raw diet right now, and I am gaining muscle mass and strength on. I decided to go back to 100% raw as of a few days ago, and I am already gaining. I was about 80-100% raw for about half a year and dont have much to detox as I had seriously lost about 40lbs of cooked muscle). I eat lots and lots of fruit (sweet and nonsweet), and I also eat nuts/seeds/fats, greens/sprouts. I found for me that greens/sprouts help me to grow. while fruits cleanse me out and give me nutrients and vitamins. I mainly mono eat, but I also make myself some raw hummus to put on salad, and I like to make trail mix. and will eventually get into making some raw meals, but nothing fancy. no dehydrating. only use a blender and a knife to prepare my meals if Im going to make something. some things I find good for calories and cheap too: -sprouted lentils -sunflower seeds -avocados -dates -almonds (sometimes) -pumpkin/Pepita seeds typical day of what I eat right now (all raw): -1,000-2,000 calories sprouted lentils -raisins -tomatoes -oranges -Clementines -pineapple -lettuce -box of dates (800g) -pears -apples -banana (when theyre not expensive) -carrots -almonds -pistachios -sprouted mungbeans -garlic -onion -lemon -ginger -dried coconut -sprouted chickpeas -peppers (red, yellow, orange) -walnuts (picked straight off the tree) -sesame seeds (200-400g) -sunflower seeds (200-400g) -pumpkin/pepita seeds (150-300g) -flax seeds this is just a sample of what Im eating right now. I try to eat in season and to have a variety and to mix it up everyday. I eat based off of the knowledge I know and what my body truly craves. this is working for me. no idea if it will work for you. hope this helps and gives you some ideas. I find that as being RAW, I do not need less calories. I need to match the same amount of calories as if I was cooked. It is better quality calories when theyre raw, but I still need to take in the same amount. I do not weigh myself. I go based off of how I feel and look. I find lots and lots of raw calories builds muscle for me, combined with proper exercise, rest, sunshine, nutrients, and vitamins. it is a balance. but under-eating will not build muscle for me. I find watermelon to help after lifting too for recovery...same with pineapple.
