  1. That would be the case assuming a vegan diet is the best diet for human athletes, but many would argue other wise. I don't really know the answer either way all i know is the best of the best of all sports with few exceptions are on a omni diet.

    Plus being vegan doesn't automatically make you healthier or more alkaline. actually a good number of vegans i've met personally aren't very healthy looking nor athletic in the least. There's a right and a wrong way to do a omni diet and a vegan diet and i truly believe a bad omni diet is healthier for someone then a bad vegan diet. A good vegan diet vs. a good omni i think is debatable. The reason i say that about a the too bad diets is the fact that the majority of the worst stuff people eat happens to fall into the vegan foods. Oils, GMO's, Pesticides, HFCS, flours, sugars ect, so eliminating all that would make a diet healthy regardless of meat vs. no meat.

  2. I am up to 13 pullups and 16 dips. For the pullups should I add a weight belt or change to a wide grip, or just keep increasing the number? For the dips should I add a weight belt or just keep increasing too?

    Thanks

     

    LOL Good one. Theres some truth about function vs. non functional exercises, but i find the term gets used too much usually to hype a certain kinda of training. Bottom line if someone is lifting heavy free weights they're strong. You don't have to be able to squat on a swiss ball lol

    IF i was you I'd add whatever weight puts you down to the 5-10 rep range depending on goals. I'm usually in the 5-8 range. From my experience the best way to increase total reps of a certain exercise is staying low rep and building more total strength then at the end of that muscle group do higher rep body weight.

     

    I remember 5 years again i had a body weight fanatic friend who thought weights were a waste of time and they don't build "functional strength" he told me there was no way i could do 80 push ups because i only train low rep bench which doesn't carry over to push ups. And then i busted out 100 push ups never training over 10 reps on bench or doing any push ups.

  4. except for the fact that tap water has fluoride, chlorine added and in some places Lithium. on top of that traces of 50 plus different pharmaceutical drugs. So i'll take my fresh spring water that i get for free or if i had to filtered water any day over tap, but too each his own.

     

    I agree. But I think FH's point was more that ionizing water does add anything useful...I don't think he was suggesting that making sure your water has as little 'added' to it as possible is a bad thing, just that the hocus pocus of ionizing it or oxygenating it doesn't do anything. I'm jealous that you have fresh spring water!

     

    Yeah if that's what he's talking about i agree. ionizing water is probably hype to sell a product. Yeah i love having a local fresh spring to fill up my water jugs. I used to spend like 50 bucks a month on filtered water for my whole family and i and now i don't pay a penny. Tastes great also!

  5. No offense, but I would recommend you take a course on chemistry, or just read up on it a bit. In fact, there is no scientific proof that ionized water has anymore of a beneficial effect on your body than standard tap water.

     

    Again, don't be offended, but take this as an opportunity to read up on stuff. Learning is always good!

  6. Other girl seemed slightly better in striking, but obviously had no conditioning nor desire to fight after getting hit. IN theory girls should be as technical as the guys, but be lacking in strength, speed ect. but even at the high levels it just doesn't seem as though fighting is natural for women. I'd Recommend a boxing gym for learning fundamentals of boxing. I learned more boxing in a week at a boxing gym then a year at a MMA gym.

  7. Im no longer vegan but thought Id share my latest pic as vegan.Ive started to include local organic free range(my good freinds) eggs,for reasons id rather not say.Also cuz I dont wanna argue.

     

    Thx for everything ya'll!!Much love..

    I'm curious what the reasons are. you shouldn't worry about what people think on here, some will flame u but at the end of the day it's your life and you need to do what's best for you. Not what you need to do to fit some title.

  8. I hope everyone here realizes how silly conspiracy videos are?

     

    I'm always a heavy skeptic on the conspiracy stuff (not that I disregard it all, but of course, everything with a grain of salt ). I was more fascinated by the "Cult of Obama" type stuff that makes for a sociologist's wet dream, since I've always wondered why everyone got so worked up over him being viewed as the savior of our country. Like I said, kept it running in the background, found bits interesting, but I'll always question the complete depth of the conspiracy stuff.

     

     

    Yeah the Obama worship is pretty interesting. I think with the right marketing you can get anyone to be idolized as you see in the pop culture. Obama is a extreme example, but i feel most of it has worn off. Change, Change, Change and all we've seen is him out Bushing Bush.

  9. Fall of the Republic Description:

    "Fall Of The Republic documents how an offshore corporate cartel is bankrupting the US economy by design. Leaders are now declaring that world government has arrived and that the dollar will be replaced by a new global currency.

    President Obama has brazenly violated Article 1 Section 9 of the US Constitution by seating himself at the head of United Nations' Security Council, thus becoming the first US president to chair the world body.

    A scientific dictatorship is in its final stages of completion, and laws protecting basic human rights are being abolished worldwide; an iron curtain of high-tech tyranny is now descending over the planet.

    A worldwide regime controlled by an unelected corporate elite is implementing a planetary carbon tax system that will dominate all human activity and establish a system of neo-feudal slavery.

    The image makers have carefully packaged Obama as the world's savior; he is the Trojan Horse manufactured to pacify the people just long enough for the globalists to complete their master plan.

    This film reveals the architecture of the New World Order and what the power elite have in store for humanity. More importantly it communicates how We The People can retake control of our government, turn the criminal tide and bring the tyrants to justice."

     

    The Obama Deception Description:

    "The Obama Deception is a hard-hitting film that completely destroys the myth that Barack Obama is working for the best interests of the American people.

    The Obama phenomenon is a hoax carefully crafted by the captains of the New World Order. He is being pushed as savior in an attempt to con the American people into accepting global slavery.

    We have reached a critical juncture in the New World Order's plans. It's not about Left or Right: it's about a One World Government. The international banks plan to loot the people of the United States and turn them into slaves on a Global Plantation.

    Covered in this film: who Obama works for, what lies he has told, and his real agenda. If you want to know the facts and cut through all the hype, this is the film for you.

    Watch the Obama Deception and learn how:

    - Obama is continuing the process of transforming America into something that resembles Nazi Germany, with forced National Service, domestic civilian spies, warrantless wiretaps, the destruction of the Second Amendment, FEMA camps and Martial Law.

    - Obama's handlers are openly announcing the creation of a new Bank of the World that will dominate every nation on earth through carbon taxes and military force.

    - International bankers purposefully engineered the worldwide financial meltdown to bankrupt the nations of the planet and bring in World Government.

    - Obama plans to loot the middle class, destroy pensions and federalize the states so that the population is completely dependent on the Central Government.

    - The Elite are using Obama to pacify the public so they can usher in the North American Union by stealth, launch a new Cold War and continue the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan."

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I hope everyone here realizes how silly conspiracy videos are?

     

    Yeah real silly, cause Governments have always had the best interests of the people in mind. well ya, they were corrupt but not my country. This here is a quote from many years ago and just show's that history repeats it self time and time again, with slicker and slicker propaganda. The funny thing is these movies exposed obama before he could even expose himself. Fall of the Republic exposed the banker bail outs and guess what? now we have the all this info coming out exposing tim geithner, henny paulson among other people in main stream news.

     

    "Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

  10. I personally think there is nothing wrong with eating eggs from a small farm that doesn't coup the chickens into a tiny little area and also one that doesn't kill the chickens. I know a couple farms locally here and the eggs that aren't sold are thrown away. They can't just let all of them hatch or there would be a serious overpopulation on the farm.

     

    a couple have made the argument that it is immoral because they are being used for there eggs. The farms i know treat there chickens extremely well kinda like how pet dogs and cats are treated. also chickens to my knowledge are domesticated animals that can't survive in the wild so better on that kinda of farm then on a factory farm and better the eggs be used to feed people rather then thrown away.

  11. Obviously meat isn't what it's cracked up to be if your only 135 pounds at 5'11''. If your that small odds are your a light eater and that's something that needs to change if your going to get big on any diet. Eat as much as you can of clean whole foods and have someone teach you compounds lifts and make a work out split. Remember Recovery is as important as the training , so eat big (but clean) sleep enough, and don't over train.

  12. Whole unprocessed grains on average are only slightly acidic, much more alkaline then animal products and processed foods. Yes you have to have a positive nitrogen balance to build muscle and protein is the only thing that provides nitrogen. Obviously everyone needs a different amount of protein to maintain that positive balance.
