  1. I am sure this is covered somewhere here... i am looking to clean my diet up..mainly raw. i have been mainly fruit raw for few days but looking something a little more balanced (more healthy fats/veggies) i am 40 something and train crossfit (3 times a week) and Brazilian jiu jitsu (4 times a week).. looking for diet advice to stay healthy,help with recovery and fuel training and mainly raw. what do other folks here eat ? Thanks
  2. Longevity ! Keeping moving and developing strength and better overall health as i progress through my 40`s! The motivation to train stems from wanting to be the best example of veganism i can be and enjoying the challenges that brings in the areas where i train (cross fit and brazilian jiu jitsu.).
  3. quality. decent guy standing up for himself against some loser who thought he was the bigger man.
  4. Jake vs mayhem.? Felt bad for mayhem really, he was stifled and shut down by jake`s wrestling. Jake did everything he needed to win and played it smart. Of course it is is great that the middleweight champ is a vegetarian. but i admit it was not the most interesting of fights to watch!
  5. gotta love the pros..i am fascinated by anyone who with the right nutrition,right training and right pharma can transform themselves so much.. guys like Jay are literally awesome.
  6. WOW! awsome pic... quite amazing .
  7. Jay Cutler walks as a god amongst mere men! I think the guy looks truly awesome!
  8. wow,i am almost old enough for this forum! i turn 39 in 2 weeks so i am near 40+ than anything else!(went vegetarian at 12 and vegan at 18) to be honest i think it is only since i go into my late 30`s that i have developed anything like a sensible approach to training/fitness. I did a lot of thai boxing in my 20`s and if i`d had anything like a clue about nutrition,weight training, lifestyle etc i think i could have gone far with both my fighting and my fitness and probably avoided too many years of a poor lifestyle( too much drinking/drugs) as well. so at almost 39 i actually feel i have a much better shot at things,sure my body does not work the way it used to but i still train hard in martial arts and weight training and having a mature attitude and a better understanding of nutrition and supplementing my diet i am happy with my body and feel confident that i can make huge improvements still,i am a work in progress! A couple of months back i fought in a kali stick stick fighting tournament and won fighter of the day,most of the guys i was fighting were in their 20`s and they were gassed badly,some exhausted after the first or second rounds and i was still going strong in the third! people are often shocked when i tell them i am 38>39 and regularly have me down as being in my 20`s.i put it down to being Vegan and i am always proud to tell people this!
  9. i am liking the Thor`s hammer tattoo. Good work!
  10. He is handsome,cant get a better room mate than a dog!
  11. I started trying to learn to skateboard at the end of last year,at 38! I used to have an alva board back in the `80s but beer and punk rock kept me from ever learning i started doing some sessions with a bunch of older skaters via the middle age shred web forum.. kickturns on transitions etc,nothing too exciting,i was really having fun and getting into it but i have not been on it for a few months now so i will be even worse now.I really want to get back into it as at this age this is really the last chance i will get to learn! Dunno when i will next get the chance,hopefully moving from u.k to LA next year so i hope those smooth sidewalks and boardwalks will see me out on my deck more!
  12. Very few things make me `LOL` this post did! too funny.
  13. I read this on sherdawg.. interesting that Carwin gets a title shot so quick,interesting in that i reckon he is a tough SOB and will bring a good fight to that dick Lesnar!
  14. Gegard Mousasi vs Babalu was awesome. Gegard really was so chilled like you say,never seen him fight and i did not expect anyone to deal with babalu so easily! Carano is indeed one of the top women fighters in the world,i suspect that Cyborg trained harder and wanted this more to beat all the hype about Gina being number one. I would guess Gina will get back to training and will need to train harder,have more fights and maybe more explosive strength for when she has a rematch with cyborg.Great fight that hopefully has shut up some of the sexist attitudes in MMA promotion..
  15. I got to watch the Carano/cyborg fight the day after. Man that was a great fight,i thought all along that Cyborg may just be too aggressive for Gina ,she really outclassed her. awesome fight all the same.
