  1. DO eat lots of green leafy veggies. Foods like kale, collard/mustard/turnip greens, broccoli, bok choy -- these types of foods provide vital nutrients including CALCIUM which is needed to lose weight. If you are lacking in calcium, your vegan weight loss efforts could be hampered; Love nuts: nuts provide important HEALTHY fats we need, and are high in vegan protein. Raw nuts provide important enzymes we need. Toasted nuts tend to taste a little more interesting and make the protein more available for your body. So I recommend eating some raw nuts and some toasted nuts to get the best of both worlds. Just don't go crazy with them -- 1/4 cup nuts per day if weight loss is your goal;
  2. I hope this helps. Cheers,
  3. While you are healing, you should continue to address your core strength and also spend some time on gluteus muscle strength. In addition to your strength, if your kinetic chain motion is not normal, you will be a set up for another groin injury. You should consider having your mechanics checked through the leg and pelvis to correct any muscle imbalances that may have contributed to or be a result of the injury. (Is the painful groin the culprit or the victim?) You should also check to make sure your pelvis is level and you have good motion through the SI joints and lumbar spine. Your doctor may be able to do this for you or send you to a PT who can do the evaluation. You may also need additional imaging to find the root cause of your problem.
  4. I am going for full marathon this year; you can join a marathon group and there will be half way one for ya.
  5. Fitbit helps my running a lot
  6. It does not sound like you have an inguinal hernia as you do not describe a bulge and you had a normal ultrasound. Sports hernia evaluation requires some poking and prodding to make the diagnosis and sometimes an MRI can help determine the best course of action. If your range of motion in the hip in internal and external rotation seems normal and equal to the opposite side, osteoarthritis would seem unlikely. Osteitis pubis is usually tender in the midline of the pubic bone about where your bladder sits.
  7. If you want a protein supplement that gives you quality, complete protein and digestive power instead of bloating, try vegan proteins, the first vegan protein that is guaranteed to help you beat the bloat, and improve your body’s ability to digest the food you eat everyday!
  8. you can have gym at school, I beg there would be many racks in school yard
  9. Here is an example I will give of a competitor I recently helped reverse diet after they finished their prep on their own (our athletes don’t ever do this much cardio, but it’s quite common when people come to us for reverse dieting help) : Week 1 scale weight 174- added 20 carbs, cardio pulled from 30 mins 2x a day to 20 mins 2x a day. Week 2 scale weight 174.8- added 20 carbs, cardio moved to 30 mins once a day. Week 3 scale weight 175.8- added 15 carbs and 5 fats, cardio moved to 20 mins once a day. Week 4 scale weight 174.3 – added 20 carbs, cardio moved to 20 mins 6 days a week. Week 5 scale weight 176.2- added 15 carbs, 5 fats, cardio moved to 20 mins 5 days a week. Week 6 scale weight 177.1- added 15 carbs, cardio moved to 20 mins 4 days a week (where it currently stays) Week 7 scale weight 177.5- added 15 carbs, 5 fats Week 8 scale weight 178.8- added 15 carbs. We got his carbs up from 200 a day to 335 and he still has abs. His fats went from 45 a day up to 55. His protein remained the same, about 220 grams a day. So new macros are 220 protein, 335 carbs and 55 fats, up from 2085 cals to 2715 cals a day PLUS a refeed day where he’s hitting about 5000 cals. (Note: Not everyone can add this much food each week- common amounts for a male to add are 10 carbs and 5 fats, OR, 15 carbs, etc etc it depends on which macros need to go up. And, for women, I would simply add in 10 carbs or 5 grams of fat weekly and pull back cardio 5 mins and watch the mirror and scale as you go).
  10. I know there are mainly three types of exercise bikes in the market, upright, recumbent, and spining exercise bike. I am quite into cycling, so I think the spining one would be more helpful to my training. I read an article that says: While my family would like to use it as well, so I think a recumbent bike would be suitable for my family, because it has comfortable seat which is good for elderly users. So, to split the difference, I am planing to buy a crazysales Genki upright exercise bike, which is great for my home training, has adjustable resistance level, and safe enough for my family members. And what do you guys think? Among the three kinds of bikes, which one would be better?
  11. cardio would burn muscles?? I heard such a theory before but still hardly believe it.
  12. You can lift weights and plates to build up your upper body. I suggest lift 5 times, and rest for one minutes, and do another 5. Totally do it for an hour. These are just for starters. BTW, 8kg per dumbbell at least. Do 6 days and rest for one day. I believe your can do 3~5 chin up after a month of training. As for weight loss, cardio is a must. I suggest you get one of qualified exercise bikes as I did. I bought one on crazysales and always do cardio on it. The exercise bike can also make your legs stronger meanwhile dropping your weight. Your goal is not that hard, bring it and you can do it.
