  2. yeah for sure. all the decent gyms around here are $60+ a month. i'd rather work out at home, and spend that change on quality food.
  3. The ones here are packed with soccer moms, and high school cheerleaders. The equipment i saw wasn't too impressive. Considering the price I guess you can't complain.

  5. That vitamineral looks pretty similar to amazing grass. They're both pretty expensive.
  6. October 23, 2008 7:30am 1/2 cup (dry) steel cut oats with raisins 8:45am Larabar: Lemon Bar couple handfuls of granola 12:45 about 8oz. of black beans with brown rice, and corn 2:00pm Larabar: cashew cookie 4:00pm Workout 5:30pm Wok'd: - 3oz flax tempeh - 6oz of brown rice - loads of veggies 9:00pm smoothie: - strawberry, mango, pineapple - 2 TB gemma - water 2 pieces of sprouted wheat toasted with peanut butter couple handfuls of granola pretzel crisps and hummus
  7. I'm looking to add some greens to my diet/smoothies. Lately, I've been adding Amazing Grass's Green Super Food, but it's kinda pricey. Any other suggestions? Also, I'm not too familiar with all the benefits of these green powders can someone school me?
  8. I'm not saying this is "the best" but it's how i usually fix my salads. I use spinach as the base, and add lots of sprouts: alfalfa, garbanzo, peas, lentils, etc. Then some sort of fat: I favor pepitas, and sunflower seeds. I don't like dressings so I never go that route. If its too bland for you maybe try adding some hummus, or salsa.
  9. Just to follow-up, I like the blend. I usually feel a difference with pea vs soy protein (pea is better), this stuff makes me feel better than just plan pea/gemma. I'm cheap... plain gemma is cheaper than this blend, but I'll be buying this blend again. (Perhaps tweaked further, but still similar.) Flavor is ok. You get the nuttiness from the hemp and a bit of a bitter twang from something else, perhaps from the rice protein or the stevia. I've always used it in a fruit or green smoothie, so I don't know how well it would work plain. I'm almost out of gemma. I might give this mix a go. Is there anything else you would suggest tweaking? How much of a difference would a ratio like this make: 50% Gemma 30% Hemp 20% Rice or 50% Gemma 35% Hemp 15% Rice
  10. Really? Thanks. I still don't think I'm getting enough calories or protein though. It's amazing how much better I feel now that im adding more fat into my diet.

  12. I'm back to logging everything I eat. I've been busting my ass lifting for a couple years now, and have seen no results. It's seems fairly obvious that my lack of gains are due to an insufficient amount of food. Maybe this time I'll get it right.

  13. I have my first Muay Thai class coming up. What should I expect/wear/bring? Keep in mind I've never trained in any martial art.
  14. I rinse it very well before cooking. I put it in a mesh strainer, run water over it and scrubs the quinoa together. Im pretty sure I'm cooking it long enough. They open up, and have those white rings around them.
  15. Sorry if this grosses anyone out, but Im a bit concerned. For lunch I usually eat 4oz of quinoa with various steamed veggies. I've noticed recently that there's a lot of quinoa in my stool. I know it's easy to just shovel that stuff down, but i make sure I chew it sufficiently. What could be the cause of this? I take 2 Now Foods plant enzymes a day. 1 at lunch and 1 at dinner. 1 Rainbow Light Energizer One Multi Vitamin a day. 1/2 in the morning, and 1/2 at dinner. 1 dropper of liquid chlorophyll once a day
  16. What liquid chlorophyll are you taking? Also, is there any advantage to this over powder chlorella?
  17. i can't stand winter. That's one of the main reasons I want to get out of here. How's winter in portland, or colorado?
  18. 40, holy smokes. I struggle to get 5.
  19. i just tried a cherry pie, and apple pie larabar. I'm hooked now.
  20. Yeah the tricep and legs were isolation only. threeloaves: I cannot get all the healthy stuff like different food/bars here in AL so I stick with what I can get. I dont wanna have another CC as long as I shall live, so internet ordering is out too. Also, you say its high in fat and sugar but most of them only have 3 ingredients: almonds, dates, and what ever main flavor(fruit) the bar is. If I ate this separately Id get the same amount if not more cals,fat,sugar, etc. Protein is not a main concern for me. I didn't mean to criticize. It was more of a question, and i was curious as to what your opinion was on bars. It seems as though people get stressed out about the calories, and sugar content of them. I'm still a wimpy slag, and don't concern myself with counting anything. Im more focused on eating nutrient dense foods. But, It becomes tiresome cooking 4 + meals a day, and figuring out what to take to work.
  21. What about organic food bars? Larabar's are great, but it seems like they're lacking in protein, and pretty high in calories, fat, and sugar. I understand they're raw, and delicious. I guess I just feel guilty eating any bars. Sorry, i'm posting this in your eating log.
  22. even though i can't seem to put on any muscle, and remain a skinny turd i stick to it. all this hard work has to pay off sometime, right?
