  1. Immediately(within 30-45 minutes) after a workout you should have lots of carbs with little fiber. Maybe a sweet smoothie with some chlorella or spirulina would be good or 2 bananas. Maybe two hours later you should have a well balanced meal with carbs, protein, and some fat. Lately I've been in a wrap kick.





  2. Hello all,


    Could anyone tell me what meal is the best to eat after a workout? I'm takinfg Vega and love it, but am so damn hungry. I do not want to put fat on, but I feel like eating anything vegan.


    Appreciate your feedback.


    Veganpotter--do you have any ideas?


    Take Care--Patrick

  3. Creatine helps you gain weight. It allows your cells to hold more water

    Do you all thisnk Creatine is worth taking? I mean, lets say one cycles on and off and then stops for a while, the person loses all that gain. I'd say, don't take creatine and eat correctly and train your ass off.



  4. Thanks for the welcome







    We both love eating Tofu. Although I have been reading reports that tofu increase the risk of breast cancer So we have cut it down a lot from our diet. Don't know what to believe these days.


    Can anyone tell me whether the above statement concerning Tofu is true. If it odes indeed increase the risk of breast cancer, how so?


    Welcome to the forum!!!!




  5. Hi Cthulhu,

    out of curiosity, how many seeds do you eat daily? I love the taste of those seeds. Yeah, call me weird.




    That is not weird at all. I myself consume plenty of apple and apricot seeds daily when I eat the fruit as a whole.

    I recommend taking about 7-10 apricot seeds daily if you want a cancer free life- with a healthy diet, of course. Or you could try eating four whole apples, including the seeds, and 3-4 apricots with the seeds daily. You will need a nutcracker or a hammer to open the hard shell that guards the apricot seed though. Vitamin B-17 is water soluble, so take it with plenty of water.




    I love aprciots and eat approx. 4-6 seeds daily. Will the seeds go bad/rancid if they are saved (say, in a glass jar) and they dry up. I just always like to have some available.


  6. You are welcome.


    I forgot to mention: There are certain grains that taste really good and are very beneficial for us. Try Quinoa, Millet, Buckwheat.

    Quinoa is very high in protein. Just rinse it before cooking.

    If yuhave dried fruits, try to stay away from the ones that have been oxidized. The sun-dried ones are the best.



  7. Hi,


    I would definitely try to eat as clean as possible. As already mentioned, stick to whole grains, beans, fruits, salads, etc. Set yourself a mild goal, say, 1 week without your junk cravings. If you can do 1 week w/o the crap, try two weeks. If you have a juicer, juice fresh fruits and veggies. A great book is from the late Dr. Norman Walker. I believe it's called Juicing or Juicing For Life. Do a google or go to a nutrition store. They should know where to get one. They are not that expensive $6 or $7.

    Also, if you exercise, replenish your system with hemp protein or Vega. Vega is expensive, but a good good source of a "complete" meal. I would, at least for a bit, stay away from cheeses. You will do yourself and your colon a favor.

    By the way: Congrats on quitting smoking!


    Stay well and do the best you can. If you stress out too much regarding eating, you place an unnecessary stress on yourself.
