  1. Well I still have to eat. http://i55.tinypic.com/2j301mt.jpg http://i53.tinypic.com/fp12sh.jpg http://i53.tinypic.com/2efi3dk.jpg http://i56.tinypic.com/34jes1k.jpg http://i52.tinypic.com/28kr71x.jpg

  3. Couldn't get over that first hurdle at the store. http://i56.tinypic.com/2e52r1g.jpg Weighed 227.5 after a shower tonight. If I don't get to the gym by closing tonight I can't until the 26th because of their holiday hours. Gonna make some jello as I miss it so. http://i51.tinypic.com/2rpfj3r.jpg This and a little agar powder, which I have, should do. I'm guessing if it doesn't work I'll be able to cut it for insoles.
  4. Well as you can see many people would love my blood test results, but for a vegan they're not so sweet. And that has been just part of the problem(sweets). My diet has been full of oils sugars (the bad ones) for some time now. My exercise program beyond work is non-existent. Having been involved with work projects after work has often sabotaged any effort to get a running start, but those projects are now complete, so as the New Year approaches I plan on doing some serious workouts. I do have some other thing on my plate but it will not consume as much time as the project we just finished. So here is the blood test of a 58 year old male who has been on a vegan diet for 4.75 years. I will take the Doctor up on retesting but will get iodine, B12, and calcium on the next one. So stay tuned, to see if I can retune these results. http://i51.tinypic.com/2lufjnc.jpg http://i51.tinypic.com/2n7h160.jpg These are the results from about a year and a half ago. http://i43.tinypic.com/1jvle9.jpg
  5. Was thinking about a Tofurkey and gravy as they having crab and asparagus. Asparagus and gravy sounds yummy. Could even inspire me to make a cream sauce for it. Vegan of course.
  6. Welcome! Talking to cows is cool! Best of luck with your plans!
  7. D3 is touted as superior to either D1 or D2, because it is more readily absorbed.

    Welcome! Daiya cheeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
  9. Just for shits and giggles, how does the body differentiate between animal amino acids and plant amino acids?
  10. FYI D3 is animal based, at least that's my understanding.
  11. Happy Birthday! http://www.jojo-cakes.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/Untitled2.jpg

  14. Bah Humbug Boston, MA – Scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and collaborators from other institutions have identified a natural substance in dairy fat that may substantially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. The compound, trans-palmitoleic acid, is a fatty acid found in milk, cheese, yogurt, and butter. It is not produced by the body and so only comes from the diet. Reporting in the December 21, 2010, issue of Annals of Internal Medicine, investigators led by Dariush Mozaffarian, associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology at HSPH and Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and Gökhan S. Hotamisligil, J.S. Simmons Professor of Genetics and Metabolism and chair of the Department of Genetics and Complex Diseases at HSPH, explain that trans-palmitoleic acid may underlie epidemiological evidence in recent years that diets rich in dairy foods are linked to lower risk of type 2 diabetes and related metabolic abnormalities. Health experts generally advise reducing full-fat dairy products, but trans-palmitoleic acid is found in dairy fat. The HSPH researchers examined 3,736 participants in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-funded Cardiovascular Health Study, who have been followed for 20 years in an observational study to evaluate risk factors for cardiovascular diseases in older adults. Metabolic risk factors such as blood glucose and insulin levels, and also levels of circulating blood fatty acids, including trans-palmitoleic acid, were measured using stored blood samples in 1992, and participants were followed for development of type 2 diabetes. At baseline, higher circulating levels of trans-palmitoleic acid were associated with healthier levels of blood cholesterol, inflammatory markers, insulin levels, and insulin sensitivity, after adjustment for other risk factors. During follow-up, individuals with higher circulating levels of trans-palmitoleic acid had a much lower risk of developing diabetes, with about a 60% lower risk among participants in the highest quintile (fifth) of trans-palmitoleic acid levels, compared to individuals in the lowest quintile. "This type of observational finding requires confirmation in additional observational studies and controlled trials, but the magnitude of this association is striking," said Mozaffarian, lead author of the study. "This represents an almost three-fold difference in risk of developing diabetes among individuals with the highest blood levels of this fatty acid." In contrast to the types of industrially produced trans fats found in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, which have been linked to higher risk of heart disease, trans-palmitoleic acid is almost exclusively found in naturally-occurring dairy and meat trans fats, which in prior studies have not been linked to higher heart disease risk. "There has been no clear biologic explanation for the lower risk of diabetes seen with higher dairy consumption in prior studies. This is the first time that the relationship of trans-palmitoleic acid with diabetes risk has been evaluated," said Mozaffarian. "We wonder whether this naturally occurring trans fatty acid in dairy fats may partly mimic the normal biologic role of its cis counterpart, cis-palmitoleic acid, a fatty acid that is produced in the body. In animal experiments, cis-palmitoleic acid protects against diabetes." "Unfortunately, with modern diets, synthesis of cis-palmitoleic acid is now driven by high amounts of carbohydrate and calories in the diet, which might limit its normal protective function. We wonder whether trans-palmitoleic acid may be stepping in as a "pinch hitter" for at least some of the functions of cis-palmitoleic acid," said Mozaffarian. Hotamisligil, the study's senior author, also emphasized the magnitude of the risk reduction. "This is an extremely strong protective effect, stronger than other things we know can be beneficial against diabetes. The next step is to move forward with an intervention trial to see if there is therapeutic value in people." Because trans-palmitoleic acid, also known as trans-palmitoleate, is a natural compound, Hotamisligil said that conducting clinical trials should be possible. "This study represents the power of interdisciplinary work bridging basic science with population studies to realize exciting translational possibilities," he said.

  15. I appreciate different things at different times. But: Daiya is the bomb!
  16. Basically the article is saying that if you've been eating a crappy, heavy fat diet, then fasting before a workout will benefit you more in the area of reducing weight or progressing towards diabetes than if you ate a doughnut before working out.
