  1. I do wonder if there is a grain of truth in the nutritional aspect. Maybe iron or something, but certainly not protein. But the truth remains, that it is inefficient.
  2. I'm 5'9" and around your weight, trying to gain. It's not that easy when one is accustomed to smaller amounts
  3. Yes, , the stupidity is never ending.
  4. I find this to be the most annoying website ever
  5. I also wasn't crazy about the hemp thing, as if regular food doesn't have protein.
  6. Oh, I wasn't saying you discredit it. What I mean is, if the guy who invented the word "vegan" himself lives to 95, veganism can't be that bad, like some people say. My question is, why do you and Zack have the same signature?
  7. Dunno, but did you know Donald Watson, founder of the Vegan Society and inventor of the word vegan, died in 2005, at age 95? At the age of 14, he became a vegetarian, and in the 1940s, after learning about milk production, he became a vegan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Watson Whether veganism can be credited for his long life, I dunno, but you can't discredit veganism as being unhealthy based on this.
  8. That's cause they can digest cellulose, and we can't. Cellulose—a naturally occurring polymer made of repeat units of the monomer glucose. This is the same glucose which your body metabolizes in order to live, but you can't digest it in the form of cellulose. Because cellulose is built out of a sugar monomer, it is called a polysaccharide.
  9. Apparently I'm not getting enough of Vitamin Milk.
  10. You're asking if you need salad? I don't think so, if you don't want it. I found an interesting article on how to eat fruits. http://chennaionline.com/food/healthandnutrition/fruithab.asp Basically, eating fruits with or after other food makes them stay in your stomach longer than they should be. So you should probably eat fruits 30 minutes BEFORE other foods
  11. Yeah, this seems like a good idea. Eating a lot of fruits would give energy for training.
  12. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/dd/Singapore_MRT_Fines.jpg/471px-Singapore_MRT_Fines.jpg
  13. Yeah, I was wondering this too. What's the best food to eat before a workout for energy, and how long to wait?
  14. Have you checked out the site www.iter.org ? Fusion nuclear energy, making abundant and clean power in a similar way to the sun. But my bets are on solar: http://www.celsias.com/2007/11/23/nanosolars-breakthrough-technology-solar-now-cheaper-than-coal/ "Their PowerSheet cells contrast the current solar technology systems by reducing the cost of production from $3 a watt to a mere 30 cents per watt. This makes, for the first time in history, solar power cheaper than burning coal."
  15. Yeah, I don't understand how some of you naturals look up to the juicers
  16. I can help, Lean and Green, if you've got some good ideas
  17. "as measured in CO2 equivalent", title didn't have space to say that anyway. There is also actual CO2 involved, too, from the burning of fossil fuels for their production
  18. I don't know if this has been posted here, but perhaps being vegan for environmental reasons could be the most significant now. http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=20772&Cr=global&Cr1=environment http://www.fao.org/ag/magazine/0612sp1.htm Rearing cattle produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars, UN report warns 29 November 2006 – Cattle-rearing generates more global warming greenhouse gases, as measured in CO2 equivalent, than transportation, and smarter production methods, including improved animal diets to reduce enteric fermentation and consequent methane emissions, are urgently needed, according to a new United Nations report released today. “Livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems,â€
  19. Double-edged sword. Seriously, I think this forum needs an update. This is also a security issue. I was on another forum that was not updated, it got hacked, and went down in flames.
