  1. ok thanks, that helps a lot. it's always been on the back of my mind.
  2. Hello, this may sounds silly, but had a question about muscle building. Say my average BMR is 2000 calories and doing a typical 3 day a week weight lifting program. I've read everywhere to eat a lot more when trying to gain muscle, but when I do that, I typically seem to build up fat a lot quicker than muscle, and then I get a little down on myself and start trying to burn off the fat again. So I have 2 scenarios, 1) If my BMR is 2000 cals, and I end up eating let's say 2300 cals. Is it possible that if I don't eat 2700 calories ( making up a theoretical optimum amount), will the calories turn into fat, because my body needed the full 700 excess calories to build muscle. so, in essence, is muscle building, an all or nothing process? If it doesn't have all the possible nutrients and cals, no muscle building will occur, or will it still occur albeit at a slower rate? 2) Say in the same vein, if I get 75 grams per day of protein on an average basis, and my theoretical optimal amount is 125 grams per day (making this number up for the scenario). by not consuming the extra 50 grams, will I still build muscle at a slower rate, or is the full 150 grams necessary for the muscle building process to occur? In both scenarios, I'm kind of thinking an anology to construction. Let's say in building a room for a house, if you have all the lumber but not the nails, no room can be built, rendering the lumber as complete waste. I will start a training journal as well in the near future. Thanks! (btw, I'm a 6 year vegan, 39 years old, 163 lbs at about 14-16% bodyfat. )
  3. hey, great work, looking huge! btw, are you indian? not too many other indian vegans out there!
  4. yeah, he's used the china study book as his base, but added meat and fish to it.
  5. wanted to know if anyone has this book by Tony Gonzalez and your thoughts of it. (i've already preordered Robert's book as well, so thankful for his book as well!)
  6. go blendtec www.willitblend.com i believe the motor is stronger than the vitamix and mine has worked great.
  7. Good question. I've been a little perplexed about this as well. If I see ants / spiders in my house, first attempt, I'll try to sweep them onto a dustpan and take them outside. Hopefully more don't come back, but then I do spray so it doesn't become a bigger problem and more have to get killed later. If there's a better solution, I'm open to it.
  8. If you like Indian food, you can look up indian spices to add to your vegetables. Same with mediterranean type flavorings.
  9. Hey Troy, Is there a reason you don't incorporate beans/legumes into your non-smoothie meals?
  10. Great video, thanks for sharing! I have the same Blendtec and it's such a great purchase.
  11. I was just searching for vegan in our area, and found Lance Morrison who has Vegan themed songs. He was also a former cop. www.vegantunes.com You can find more about his background here: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4176/is_20070917/ai_n20504669/pg_1
