  1. What do you guys think of Vital Wheat Gluten? I started eating some "Unchicken" that's really high in protein and low in everything else (carbs, fats, etc.). Just wondering if there is anything bad about eating too much of Vital Wheat Gluten?
  2. I see this on supplements, such as protein powders, all the time. What are MRPs and are they good for you?
  3. I hear a bunch of talk about slow release protein for night time. Most people talk about Casein protein powder or whey protein powder with milk or cottage cheese. Do you guys use a slow release protein at bedtime and if so, what are the vegan alternatives?
  4. Thanks Jon. Let me know what issue it was if you find out.
  5. Has anyone tried Vega? If so what kind of results did you notice?
  6. This is what I've been doing. I'm probably overtraining. I plan to go heavier from now on and not be in the gym as long (I'm in there forever! Like 3+ hours!). Pretty much do 3-4 sets of each exercise. I'm definitely getting stronger so I'm doing more weight but I've always been scared of doing too much weight in fear of injury. I always warm up with light streching and 15 minute light cardio. Here's my routine: Monday: Chest/Triceps/Abs -Chest: -Flat Bench Press -Incline Bench Press -(Sometimes) Decline Bench Press -Cable Flys -Dips (assisted) -Triceps: -Cable pull downs -Lying barbell extension/close grip press -Dumbell kickbacks Wednesday: Back/Biceps/Abs -Back: -Hyperextensions -Seated Pulley Rows -Lat Pulldowns -Biceps: -7s -Incline Dumbbell Curls -Preacher Curls -(Sometimes) Straight Bar Cable Curls -Forearm curls Thursday: Shoulders/Legs/Abs -Shoulders: -Military Press -Dumbell Shrugs -Front Lateral Raises Legs (most of this is on nautilis not free weights): -Leg Press -Leg Extensions -Lying Leg Curls -Whatever the machine's called where you spread your legs -Whatever the machine's called where you close your legs Sunday: Yoga Class (1 hour) Abs are usually crunches on the ball, some flat crunches where I left my tailbone up for lower abs, and side crunches. I know cardio is probably the biggest thing I should focus on so I've been doing it after my workout (which make my workouts damn long - like 3+ hours!). I'll get on a treadmill for about 30 minutes and then get on a bike for around 20 minutes. I like the eliptical machines but they don't seem to work me out as hard (although I'm sure they're worse on my joints). Does this help?
  7. What the best cardio to lose weight? I'm 5'11 and weigh 195. My doc says I should lose about 20 pounds. I have been doing cardio at the gym but am not sure what's the best cardio to shead the pounds. I like the eliptical treadmills but I don't seem to get as good of a workout as I do on the regular treadmill (although I'm sure it's better on my joints). I also do cardio on the stationary bikes but nothing seems to work me as hard and running on the regular treadmilll. What's best and how much/how long should I do cardio each week?

  8. Hello everyone, I was vegan from 97-03 and since 04 I've been eating some dairy (mostly cheese now and again). I'd really love everyone's opinion on the body I'm working towards. I think I may have a mild case of gyneocastia. I'm not positive but it seems like no matter how much weight I lose I still have fat under my chest. I've always had a concave chest so that probably makes it that much more noticeble. I created a post on a gynecomastia board and was curious if you guys would take a look at it and let me know what you think. I'd really appreciate any advice and/or comments you could give me. Thanks so much! The post is here: http://www.gynecomastia.org/cgi-bin/gyne_yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=11;action=display;num=1116730187
