  1. http://www.thegreatfitnessexperiment.com/2012/01/research-women-are-supposed-to-be-fat-the-flat-abs-myth.html I found it extremely compelling and really makes you think.

  5. Calfornia climate? Lol, I am talking about dried dates
  6. I eat bobs red mill 8 grain cereal, 2 dates, 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries, redstar yeast, 1 cup unsweetened soymilk, 1-2 dried apricot, & either 1 or 1/2 banana before the rides. I eat dates along the ride [only 2-3], but sometimes I think my intake during the ride isnt enough [i only started riding in august], every 30 min i eat something, 1 gel, next 30 min, 1 luna bar. Oh also i use Hammer's fizz tabs in my water. I think I just need more riding experience to build up endurance. hmm :/
  7. has anyone ever done this? I am considering doing it for my long bike rides since it adds carbs+sugar, good things for biking.

  11. I put in 1 tsp of raw cacao nibs and it says 22.1 calories. but when I put in 1 tbsp, it says 65? what??? a full serving is 1 oz./28 grams. [damnit I cannot wait to get a food scale!!] which is correct? [/url]http://www.navitasnaturals.com/products/cacao/cacao-nibs.html[/url]
  12. i know this is an old thread, but amazing points you have Ruz! I dig them.
  13. Yeah, if I could work out all day long, I actually would. It's such a rush. Instead, I built a standing desk so that I never sit down at work and since I work from home, I can switch things up a lot and move around. It's late at night when my body is winding down that I begin to feel a chill. I've learned to take particular heed of that. There's a cut-off when I'm past the point of no return and it's time to go to bed. If I push it, bad things happen. One time, I was camping in Yellowstone in late September and stayed up way too late talking with some fun people at the campsite next to mine. While we were around their fire, I felt fine. But once I headed back to my frozen sleeping bag at 1 in the morning, I was too cold to warm myself up. I lost the feeling in my lower legs and had to crawl into my truck cab to save my feet. The overnight temperature was 25 degrees. That was before I learned about warming packs. Now, I only camp at hotels. Baby Herc yikes!! I wouldve invested in a thermal sleeping bag man. and thats awesome about the standing office
  14. The trick is that the fitter you become athletically, the lower your resting heart rate becomes. That's when you feel cold. The upside is that the colder you run basally, the hotter you can run when you are operating at peak performance. Your body literally burns like a hotter furnace, churning out more power. You gotta eat smart to keep the fire stoked when you perform and you gotta keep yourself warm artificially (sweaters, warmer rooms, warmer climate) when you're not performing but it's a small price to pay for being awesome. I welcome it. Baby Herc Yeah it's only when I'm resting that I get cold, obviously not when working out
  15. is it common for athlete's/body builders to be cold often due to lack of body fat?
