  1. There's enough for endurance athletes. For bodybuilders, I guess not. Of course that is only since you are asking about the sweet, juicy flesh of fruits.

    Nuts are fruits and seeds are part of fruits. Fruitarians (frugivores), do eat other things. It's just that fruits are predominant.

    You said it yourself that nuts and seeds contain lots of protein, and yet they're fruits themselves. So, what exactly is the point of this thread? It's more hypothetical than practical or scientific, since by a scientific definition, fruits can have lots of protein(seeds and nuts).


    For example, the protein amount in a watermelon can change if you also include eating the seeds http://www.peertrainer.com/DFcaloriecounterB.aspx?id=3360

    1 cup has 31 grams of protein

  2. Weight loss: Sauna is similar to mild exercise, it burns about 300 calories per average session. Regular sauna treatments combined with a healthy diet and moderate exercise will help you lose weight and stay fit and healthy.
    I thought it was the opposite. I tought when it's cold, we spend more energy to keep body temperature normal, that's why the body shakes. But when it's too hot, the metabolism slows down, to save energy. And the the only weight loss is from sweat, water.


    The heart rate is raised:


    Cardiovascular Workout Finnish researchers have reported that the regular use of Saunas helps maintain the blood vessels in a healthier condition. Vessels become more elastic and pliable longer due to regular dilation and contraction from the process of heating and cooling the body repeatedly. Medical research shows the heart rate can rise from 60-70/min. to 110 to 120/min. in the sauna (140 – 150 with more intensive bathing), and can often sink to below normal after the cooling off stage. The heart rate increases in the Sauna create a demand for more oxygen, which in turn burns calories and provides a mild workout for the heart. Regular sauna use not only “trains” the heart muscles and improves the heart rate/cardiac output, but also positively influences the regulatory system. Repeated and multiple sauna “innings” further increase the cardiovascular workout.
