  1. I've heard good things about this Pea Protein Isolate http://www.trueprotein.com/Product_Details.aspx?cid=22&pid=6816 And while you're there, I just noticed they have Brown Rice protein as well http://www.trueprotein.com/Product_Details.aspx?cid=22&pid=6833
  2. Not 100, but the guy who invented the word Vegan lived to 95. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Watson
  3. Painful eh? I guess not a fan of Vangelis
  4. Vangelis - The Bounty Closing Titles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhM3bc8XuS0&fmt=6 Awesome track
  5. Hm, interesting indeed. He's not completely clear though. Is it Soy Isolated Protein that's the cause, or soy in general? Cause, soymilk isn't "isolated protein" to my knowledge. What this tells me is: everything in moderation. If using protein powders, combine soy, pea, rice, hemp, and whatever else. This would make a more balanced intake anyway than relying on a single thing
  6. Heh. Office Space is a fun movie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6syezOHJ2Q
  7. Could it be because the person switches too rapidly?
  8. Hey, not everybody's fit I'm not, but working on it. You want to build muscle, because muscle is smaller than fat and burns calories 24/7! Since running is hard on joints for an overweight person, I'm thinking bodyweight exercises. Squats, lunges, climbing stairs, knee pushups, some kind of pulling motion too, like assisted pullups, but they may be hard for now, and anything else http://www.stumptuous.com/cms/displayarticle.php?aid=75 http://www.stumptuous.com/cms/displayarticle.php?aid=51 Good site btw. http://www.stumptuous.com/cms/
  9. Pretty much true. High prices stimulate innovation. The biggest problem with high prices, however, is food and commodities prices go up. The good thing is alternatives are emerging. Check this out http://www.primidi.com/2005/03/07.html http://www.primidi.com/images/skysails_1.jpg Where the weather/wind conditions are reasonable - e.g. on Atlantic routes - fuel savings of about 27% can be achieved. On routes where the superior internal volume capacity of the WindShip can be properly utilised, 50% fuel savings are possible. Trucking and shipping are a problem. Now they have to focus on trucking. Trucking is based on cheap oil, which may soon be no more. Railroads are great, cause you can electrify them and you're not dependent on any fuel. Nobody's figured a good way to electrify trucks for now. http://www.edmontonsun.com/News/World/2008/05/28/5690841-sun.html
  10. Thick bar... sounds killer. I may try that. Looks like it trains crush grip and pinch grip at the same time
  11. It may depend on the type of food. There was a PDF posted in another thread about food combining, with the digestion time, and digestion could be from 30 minutes for some fruits to 4+ hours for proteins and fats. http://files.meetup.com/410532/Food%20Combining%20Chart.pdf
  12. i love it Ya, and a lot of people still seem to think it is
  13. What do you mean, ChaserHUN ?

  15. In the USA the government spends billions supporting meat and dairy farmers, in order to keep them both cheap and abundant because people "need" them. Fruits and veggies are the most expensive option here too.. Yes, I have made a post about this. The US government subsidizes meat, milk, and eggs mainly by heavily subsidizing livestock feed crops. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables are considered "specialty crops" and receive little to no money. This is the exact wording: Specialty crops. Can you believe this? While this looks good, $54 million is a drop in the bucket compared to the $2841 million animal feed grains get, per the 2004 statistics. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a similar situation in all the other countries.
  16. This is something I have been thinking about. I have been to BeyondVeg and don't exactly agree with everything he says, but I guess it's not bad to read for another perspective. BeyondVeg basically says you can't get enough calories on raw foodism, and yet I do see raw athletes here and elsewhere. And, yet, according to his experience, raw foodists have to go to the toilet way too frequently. What's the deal? Do raw foodists have to go to the toilet too frequently? Hopefully the raw people here could answer this. This quote from the site you linked is something I have thought about as well. We may have actually had our digestive system change to live on cooked foods.
  17. Yeah, I don't understand this either. Not trying to hate, but I really don't get what this is about. Yeah, I'm not sure either.
  18. Not according to this http://www.exrx.net/WeightTraining/Myths.html High Repetitions Burn More Fat Myth Performing lighter weight with more repetitions (15-20 reps, 20-30 reps, or 20-50 reps) does not burn more fat or tone (simultaneous decrease of fat and increase muscle) better than a heaver weight with moderate repetitions (8-12 reps).
