  1. On teh internet no one cares about correct grammar or proper sentences (this includes me too). At least she was polite and ended with Mvh (= mycket vänliga hälsningar = very kind regards) =)
  2. Hi. I'm wondering how much shipping cost would be for approximately 3 jars of protein powder. Live in sweden. Very kind regards Michaela Her Swedish is pretty damn bad =) Don't forget to mention customs and the domestic shipping (when it has arrived to Sweden and the postal service here "takes over")
  3. Of the ones we discussed in the other thread no one was a semi eaa
  4. World health organization, FDA etc etc all pretty much agree as far as I know. And the numbers were for 2-5 year olds but I don't think that changes much over time..
  5. Yes, and not just animal based. If you start eating only candy and drink coke but manage to end up in a calorie defecit you will still most likely see improvements. Weight gain is basically the same thing but opposite results no matter on what diet you gain weight on.
  6. Not that I'm Medman but This isn't really true. You can easily maintain glycogen stores during a diet but on a low-carb diet your glycogen stores will be used. I can recommend this old baby http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/reprint/20/2/157.pdf and this more recent one http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/reprint/56/1/292S.pdf Back in the day (and still sometimes actually) this makes researchers believe in a "metabolic advantage" in favor of low-carb diets. However many diets that are not low carb use very little and sometimes no added salt which often greatly reduce the sodium intake of the dieters which also causes a water loss (not as much as losing glycogen though). There is no guarantee that ones health metrics will improve but it happens in 99,9999% of the cases. That's the reason why you can't use weight loss studies do determine the safety of a diet or a specific nutrient (sat fats, sugar etc).
  7. Then by all means, post the sources. Education is the spice of life. Goodin S, Shen F, Shih W, et al. Clinical and biologic activity of soy protein powder (SPP) in healthy male volunteers: effect on testosterone and luteinizing hormone (LH). Program and abstracts of the 40th annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology; June 5-8, 2004; New Orleans, Louisiana. Abstract 4611. I totally get it. You don't
  8. If I find 50 guys that smoked cigarettes their whole life and don't develop lung cancer, is that enough proof that smoking does not cause lung cancer?
  9. Plants contain different substances in different amounts, it's nature dude. Many legumes other than soy contain phytoestrogens but soy is a hotter topic since it's consumed more and I would guess the amount of the phytoestrogens are a bit higher than other legumes. I know that lentils have some.
  10. Basically all plant and all animal protein contains all the 20 amino acids (gelatin is an exception) so by your definition it's all complete protein. However to be a "complete" protein you need certain amounts of the essential amino acids and hemp does not have those amounts and is because of that not a complete protein.
  11. Stove, oven, microwave Legumes, grains, tubers, fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds. Protein powder and/or BCAA/EAA and creatine Gym Squat, bench, deadlift and military press Eat train sleep repeat Mirror The bible and the Koran
  12. That numbers I've seen on hemp protein clearly shows that it falls short on 5 amino acids of WHOs reference pattern for essential amino acids. The amino acids are lysine, isoleucine, valine, methionine/cystine and tryptophan. strawberryriddick, do you have any numbers that contradict this and where did you get them?
  13. Damn bc damn. After reading all that totally legit info I've decided to not be vegan anymore bc you get sick (n=1). In fact I'm only going to eat real food from now on bc it's real. Chicken, fish and milk not one single vegetable bc vegetables isn't real bc they are destroying the planet bc a crazy lady in a book said so. There is no spoon bc there simply isn't (bc it's not real). bc bc bc bc bc bc
  14. Damn I had forgotten all about this. When you wrote this I dug up some studies and I think you have misunderstood some crucial things. Coffee increases insulin sensitivity and has shown great protection against type 2 diabetes while isolated and added caffeine (think coke and pre workout stuff) decreases insulin sensitivity. Coffee rules, I just had some. It was great!
  15. That is an excellent question sir. Unfortunately I have no answer but I don't know.
  16. I workout at a 24/7 fitness gym and a campus/student gym. The 24/7 fitness is better equipped but the student gym has hotter girls so I'm always torn between the two.
  17. I would if I didn't have the hots for a Canadian... Hmmm I see what have to be done http://coedmagazine.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/01/south-park-mothers-against-canada-tshirts.jpg
  18. Third on what Marcina said. And the best forearm traning for a beginner/intermediate lifter is to do regular pulling (back) excersises and maybe maybe do some extra grip work (like farmers hold).
  19. You are overcomplicating. Try starting strength http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/Starting_Strength_Wiki
  20. Make sure you get enough protein. Aim for at least 2 gram per kg bodyweight, how much of your calories that is isn't possible for anyone of us to know since we don't know how many calories you burn and how many calories above your maintenance you're going to eat. Energy% is useful for a lot of things but when we're talking about protein the amount is much more crucial. There are some benefits of keeping fat around 0,5-1 gram per kg bodyweight for hormone levels and there are benefits of keeping carbs fairly high for recovery and energy but I doubt you need to concern with those things. Just eat foods that are healthy, tasty and that you really enjoy.
  21. I wish Lena had the Johan fever. That would be sweet
  22. I'm pretty sure I've posted this somewhere but here we go again http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2129150/ If you have access to medline through your university you should also read http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14971434 It is referenced in the first text but def worth reading on it's own.
  23. Really. Moving here for her? We have way better looking girls dude.
