Re: Egg Cooker - anyone try one?

Really Jay, I have eaten sunflower seed shells and all, but eggs I would never even think to do that. Not even as an added Calcium source.

Re: Olympic-Style Lifts with Dumbbells?

I agree with the above posts about transference to the Clean and the Snatch using a barbell vs. dumbbells.

An alternative to squats with the dumbells would be belt squats. Get yourself a dip belt...

Re: Concept 2 Model C

Probably a very average price in any area of the contry.
A new model D shipping is close to 900-1000.

I was watching model C's go for 700-850 at Christmas time in the Los Angeles area.

Thanks for the clarification on the fat. So cuts of beef and pork I have to adjust additional fat intake down, and poultry and fish go with 3g.

Re: Are CF Zone Calories/Grams of Macronutrients Really Enough?

Slight thread jack but please help.

Are zone fat blocks to be counted as 3g fat or 1.5g fat.
The OP seems to be using 1.5g to get a calorie count close to 1477 for 19 blocks. I calculate it at 1729...

Re: Zone Diet Newcomer

Dennis

7g Pro = 1 Block
9g Carb = 1 Block
3g Fat = 1 Block

There's something about 1.5g fat blocks and offsetting the fat in your protien source. Someone will need to chime in.

A large whole egg...

Re: Do I have this right?

30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100 x2 = 1040 lbs

Re: Questions To Ask/ Thinks to look for in a used Concept Rower

Re: bumper plates

Those prices are $1.80/lb. Maybe the 35 was a misquote or they are trying to move them. $53 is about $1.50/lb. $63 is $1.80/lb back in line with the other sizes.
